Milestone achieved!

A decade ago I started to read and listen to personal development material and taking notes of anything important on the subject. I always have been interested in personal growth and soon started to apply what I learned in my life. I collected hundreds of post it notes, pieces of paper and just about anything that I could write on with information bits of the material I just read or listen. Hundreds of notes unorganized in my car and home and filed away. A friend of mine suggested to put those notes on an MS Word document and so I did. Months later I took the task to organize what I had and try to make sense of it. That lead to the idea of sharing my lessons and experiences of my life with others thus GMAN 2.0 blog was born. With the help of people I love and respect,an idea to write a book about something I am passionate about started to take shape. I never thought I would write let alone finish a book.

It has been work in progress, part of my personal growth over the past 10 years, but it became a reality during this current year, a year of struggle. The result of hard work, dedication, asking the right question and listening with intention is a finished book about personal growth, about change and it is now in the process of being published, self -publish that is. My life has changed so much in the past decade and continues to improve. I am so grateful for everything that God has put in my path. There is a reason for everything in life, do what is possible and leave it to God for the impossible.

How to write a book

“a life changing experience”

How I did it:

  1. Write daily notes about everything you like, aspire or care about. Doesn’t matter if it makes any sense now.
  2. Put those notes on a MS Word document
  3. Organize your thought. Ask for help of friend or family. Don’t be too critical of yourself or others. Let it flow.
  4. Get help from the right people. Invest in what is worth for you. Never sacrifice quality over cheap.
  5. be grateful every day of your progress and let it show.
  6. Talk the talk and walk the walk. Your book is a reflection of you and how others will perceive you. Be real!

Lessons & tips: You never know what’s ahead until you get there.
Don’t let anyone tell you  why it can’t be done or talk you out of your goal.
Stay on the job until finish, but don’t stress too much about it. Live life 🙂
