What’s Your Why for Writing a Wellness Book in 2017?
So, you want to write a health and wellness book. You’ve been thinking about it, and you’ve decided to take action in 2017.
Good for you! You’ll be manifesting what many other people talk about, and dream about.
But before you write a word, you need something more important than a keyboard.
You need your Why.
Why do you want to write this book?
Is it because you want to build your practice, but hate marketing and selling?
…And you’ve been hearing about how writing a book is a low-key way to “sell without selling,” because it educates people about your approach so you attract your ideal clients.
Is it because you want to be seen as the established authority in your niche?
…And you know that writing a book makes you an instant authority on your topic – after all, you wrote the book on the subject. It will attract new clients, and add credibility to your coaching, training, speaking or consulting practice.
Is it because you want to educate your patients?
Russell Faust, MD, PhD, Director, Academy of Integrative Health & Medicine, says that an educated patient:
- has fewer questions
- requires fewer resources
- has shorter “chair time” in clinic
- is happier (they understand more)
- is healthier
- reports a better patient experience
Is it because you have years of wisdom that you are burning to share with the world?
…You want to help many more people world-wide than you can ever help one-on-one.
Is it because you want to leave your legacy in this book?
…You want to leave your footprint, and help generations to come.
….And maybe you even feel like you HAVE TO write your book and share it with the world right NOW.
But you may also be plagued by doubts and fears, such as:
- Who am I to write a book?
- Do I have enough content to write a book?
- Will anyone want to read my book?
If you’re wondering who should write a wellness book…
The WHO is YOU, if:
- People ask your advice in your area of expertise.
- People pay for this type of advice.
- Your book addresses a problem that lots of people have.
So take a moment to think about your purpose and what you are most revved up about.
Are you most excited about healing more people around the world, growing your practice, launching or expanding your speaking business (TED talks anyone?), creating a course around your book, stepping up as a leader in your specialty…
…or a combination of these motivations?
Pick your biggest Why, and then take action to write your book in 2017.
Tony Robbins says,
“Why is the most important question to ask, because that’s where you get the most emotional juice to keep going when the going gets tough.
Action is the key to everything. The problem is that most people live in their heads. They have their dreams and their goals. They get hyped up about them, but they just don’t execute on them.”
That’s why I’m here to help. If you’ve been dreaming about writing your book, but haven’t taken action yet, it’s probably for two reasons:
- You don’t have a big enough Why. Get clear in your mind about the most compelling reason to write your book, and that will drive you to action.
- You are missing the How to write and publish your book.
