If we want to turn our dream of writing and publishing a book into the reality of holding that published book in our hands, perseverance is an excellent trait to employ.

It’s part of maintaining personal integrity and living in alignment with our values.

I must do what I said I would do, when I said I would do it, whether I feel like it or not.

Am I tired, mentally, emotionally or physically?

Maybe, but here’s the hard truth. My vision for my life and my published book couldn’t care less.

My emotional state is irrelevant to my goal.

If I am truly determined to turn my vision into my reality, I must step out of my comfort zone and do one more thing. I must push myself a little further than I want or believe I can.

Because I am ALWAYS capable of far more than I think I am in any given moment.

And here’s the kicker.
