Think of fear as your inner compass. It points you to the things you must confront and conquer.
Every moment spent fretting about how your book will be received is energy better spent to fuel your courage, determination, and innovation in your marketing strategy.
1 Corinthians 16:13 says, “Be on your guard; stand firm in the faith; be courageous; be strong.”
You’re called to stand firm, brave the uncertainty, and face your fear. The fact you’re afraid means you’re stepping out of your comfort zone and are on the brink of something groundbreaking.
Now, how do you implement this principle?
Identify your fears. What scares you most about marketing your book? Once identified, confront them. They are obstacles, not roadblocks, on your path to success.
Design a marketing strategy that challenges your fears. Are you afraid of public speaking? Plan a book reading or a launch event. Does the idea of rejection petrify you? Pitch to bookstores, influencers, or reviewers who don’t know you.
Every moment of courage brings you one step closer to your goals.When you feel fear creeping in, remember your fear is an invitation to bravery, a call to action, and a stepping stone to your success. Click To Tweet
