I was amped, stoked, in action, then I stalled. I wouldn't touch it, look at it, didn't even want to think about it.
I'm talking about my book.
I'm the Author of the upcoming book Feel Good Kick Ass Confidence: Using Your Body to Rock Your Life.
But 3 months ago, I stopped working on it. My perfectionist came to the surface. I judged everything I'd already written, refusing to write anything else because I would just judge that too.
And then last weekend came around.
I was my publisher's Get Your Book Done camp. Being with him for 3 days straight in a community of other Authors all working on our books was friggin' AMAZING.
I experienced a shift.
I came back into relationship with my book, adding pages and pages of content.
I secured an editor and formatter.
My fire for my book is back.
The keys to this: structure and community.
I had a structure: Fri-Sun from 9am to 7pm I was in a room working on the book under the guidance of my mentor.
I had community: The energy of others working on the same thing is INVALUABLE to the life of the thing I'm working on.
Now that the camp is over, I'm setting up ongoing structure and community to COMPLETE my dream and desire of finishing this book.
What about you?
Which of your desires needs to be resuscitated? Is it to change jobs, start your own business, or get promoted in your current work? Is your next desire to lose 15 lbs?
You don't have to do this alone - and you shouldn't.
Community and structure are KEY to bringing your desires from make-believe to physical reality.
And to support you with community and structure (and fun), I'm facilitating The Rock Your Life Danceshop(TM) on Saturday, May 28, 2016 in Los Angeles.
This event is designed to help you have your dream job(s) and relationships in your dream body image through Latin, House, African, and Zumba dance.
I would love for you to experience the Danceshop with the existing people in your community. Bring 10 people and automatically receive a $35 Lululemon gift card + your Danceshop registration is free. This is not a drawing. The gift card is yours. Email me right now and confirm this as your registration option.
Additional Registration options:
2. Register now for one ticket - $10 in advance (Register at https://squareup.com/store/feel-good-kick-ass/item/rock-your-life-danceshop-tm)
3. Bring 3 people and your registration is free. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to make arrangements.
4. Pay $15 at the door
Once you've registered you and your peeps, make it a goal to spark a connection with another Danceshop attendee that can last beyond May 28.
You never know who you'll meet, and the kind of support you'll receive to bring more and more desires into existence down the line!
Words to Live By
