Another Free Book? Yeah, I’m Overdoing It!

I know, I know!

Just how many books have I published! Quite a bit, as it turns out. This current book on promotion is all about finding focus and I want to share it with you.

Finding focus isn’t a matter of learning how to focus. You already know how to focus!

What it requires is understanding how focus works and to direct, improve and apply it to the right aspects of your life until it becomes second nature to you.

In this book, I put together an elaborate guide on how to find focus in the long run and for short term results. It is a fluff-free focused book that consists of every single practical way to build focus until you can call upon it in mere seconds.

You will learn what it entails to enter The Zone and how to achieve maximum productivity whilst focusing on the task at hand.

Cool? Cool!

I’m Scared

What if I won’t succeed at writing? It scares me to watch everyone else pursue the orthodox path of finding a job whereas I’m pursuing my dream of writing. 

I have financial goals too. I want to buy a beautiful house by the sea and live my days crafting beautiful words that readers enjoy. 

I want it so bad. I’m sacrificing many months to give this a fair shot but the fear of failure has finally showed its ugly face.

From right now, I’m making some huge changes in my life starting with the amount of time I spend working each day. 

I’ve set a daily quota of 7000 words for 6 days a week and I plan to release many books in the next 6 months. I am going to give my entire life to writing and God willing, I succeed. 

To be honest, I don’t have much to say because I’m in a state of panic (lol) but rather than breaking apart, I’m directing all of it towards working harder. 

Let’s see if I can truly succeed as an author. Let’s see…

I Drive Myself Crazy

Trying to be perfect is a pain in the ass.

Do you ever wake up on some mornings wanting to push out the most amount of work possible but your body, mind and spirit just isn’t in the right space to do it?

That’s what happened today and I drove myself crazy trying to work. For me, when I reach that point of actually losing the enjoyment of working on something, all my inspiration and creativity plummets.

Sometimes, walking away for even a few hours can do tremendous good for an artist.

It just so happens that my stubbornness got the better of me today. I worked until all I could think about was crawling into a ball and being alone.

I just wanted this new book launch to be perfect but I’m not sure how that’s turning out. My heart’s in the right place but something is bringing me down these last few days.

Sometimes, I get lost in all the noise my brain makes. But, in all this madness, I always learn valuable lessons.

For some reason my heart feels full of emotions and rather than try to articulate the words to describe what’s going on in my heart and head, I’d rather call it a night.

Thanks for reading and thanks for the support!

The big epiphany is NOW free on Amazon Kindle. Give it a read and let me know if you can relate to my personal story of disease and overcoming it 🙂

Oh, yeah, INFINITY will be releasing on March 3rd! I’m so excited for you to read this fiction story, it’s so special!

Have a fantastic weekend.

The Internet Is Dangerously Addictive

There’s rarely anything that I’ve ever been addicted to but it seems like the Internet has changed that.

Yes, I love it. My work as a writer dictates that I am to be online as much as possible.

For the most part, it’s been a huge help in my life. I’ve earned a living online and I’ve learnt many things.

Lately, however, the amount of hate and distateful comments plaguing sites has been messing with my head.

Last night I was on YouTube and stumbled across a video on Islam, the comment section was absolutely appalling. The amount of hate and hurtful sentiments against Muslims and Islam took me aback.

Maybe my parents kept me sheltered from all this as a child or maybe things weren’t this way prior to 9/11 but there’s a stigma now attached to Muslims all around the world for the actions of Islamic terrorists.

It bothered me. I wanted to truly believe that we live in a world where we all can bond and be kind to each other even in all our differences. A huge part of me believes that’s true.

I hate to talk about this on my blog but it’s been on my mind all day and it has hindered my writing and Editing for the last hour.

On the plus side, I published that book I told you guys about, The Big Epiphany, and it’s going to be free from tomorrow. It’s a really meaningful book that explores the inner workings of our personalities as well as my story of triumph over Psoriatic Arthritis.

Talk  you tomorrow.

Rewriting And Editing Infinity

Okay. So, I have some good news and some bad news. 

I finished the first draft of Infinity. Woohoo! It’s safe to say that this was a pain in the ass story to write simply because of how weird the plot is. 

The bad news is that I’m writing an alternative version. Here’s the thing, I have two major plots for the story and although I chose a more sci-fi approach for the first, I feel like I owe it to myself to write the deep almost supernatural version of Infinity exploring death. 

It will be done within the week and then after editing the two, I’ll decide which version deserves to see the light of day. 

I apologize for not posting at all last week but I wanted to report back to you guys once I actually completed Infinity. 

On the plus side, I found a book I wrote a long time ago, nonfiction, that explores optimism, confidence and coming of age. I’ll probably publish that this week and a lot of it details my personal struggles over the last couple years. 

I’ll let you guys know as soon as it comes out and during a free promo. 

Here’s the cover I had designed. Give me your thoughts 🙂

Catch you later.

I Took Some Time To Rejuvinate

Sometimes things get to a breaking point and you can either break or take a step back to figure out where you’ve overstepped. 

In my case, I took a step back to find out hat triggered my fall. 

I’m the type of person who works on emotions. But, emotions are erratic. Some days I can write all day and enjoy it whilst others not so much. 

Results are more familiar with systems than emotions. Usually, the winner is the individual who worked the smartest consistently. 

I’ve been promoting this idea of pure hardwork but i have just learnt how important working smart is. 

Combine the two and you will be hitting goals daily. 

My new plan is currently in progress. I want to figure out a lifestyle that promotes writing rather than writing around my lifestyle. 
After all, writing is my life. 

It feels good to be back after a week in comparison to 6 months (yup, that’s how long my breaks used to be)

My Goals For 2017

I know most people set resolutions for the new year but I tend to avoid doing that because the rate at which failure increases as January progresses is too high for my liking.

In many of my non-fiction books, something I often speak about is direction. We’re all on a journey, right? Goals and dreams are the reasons we keep moving forward. Without them, we’d be stagnant and slowly falling into a deep dark hole of anxiety and depression (trust me, I know what that feels like).

So, I want to share my goals for 2017 with you in hopes of keeping myself accountable because I care about what you and every other reader thinks about me.

Without further ado, these are my goals for 2017.

1. Lose excess weight gained in 2016 and build a physique with visible six pack abs by May 2017.

2. Write and publish 10 fiction novels.

3. Grow income to mid 5 figures from book sales.

4. Travel to Botswana by August.

5. Write 5000 words a day for 10 days straight.

6. Build my private book subscription list to 1000 subs (172 currently subscribed).

7. Post 4 times a week on Zakwrites.

8. Complete 60 days of the Autoimmune protocol.

9. Quit sugar for 60 days.

10. Read 10 non-fiction books (preferably on writing and business management).

11. Buy a new car by December 2017.

That’s the end of my goal list for 2017 🙂 I look forward to making 2017 a year full of completed goals and happiness.

What’s your main goals for the year? I hope you’ve written them down. If you haven’t, now’s the perfect time to do so.
