Ask Bri Anything…..
On this month’s episode of ‘Ask Bri Anything…..’ we hear from an anonymous aspiring author: “Bri, I’ve been trying to write a book for over a year and it’s not working. After writing your book in 3-weeks, what advice do you have for me?”
My answer to this is short + sweet: Stop trying.
make an attempt or effort to do something
There is a large difference between doing and trying. I never tried to write a book. From the beginning, the energy I put towards that project was one of doing.
Trying does not imply action, it implies attempt.
By consistently telling the story of “trying” you are continuing to energetically push away the project or leap you are desiring of. If day after day you say, “I’m trying to write a book,” then day after day your book gets put off into the future.
This totally speaks to Phase One of the leap process that I talk about in Permission to Leap. If you are trying or attempting to do something, it means you aren’t committed. Trying infers that you have one foot in and one foot out. Whereas if you were to stop trying and start writing…. Well, then you’d be writing a book. And eventually you’d have a book that you’d written.
See how that works?
Do or do not, there is no try. -Yoda
Instead of trying, how could you commit to your leap on a deeper level in order to create the results you say you desire?
Love + Leaps,
P.S. Mark your calendar for next Tuesday…. You’ll be one of the FIRST to know when Permission to Leap hits Amazon so that you can grab your copy!
