Bestseller For Life - GERALD WILLIAMS
The Waiting Is The Hardest Part
This week has been one heck of a roller coaster.
First of all, the tragedy in Las Vegas has shocked the world and seems painstakingly slow to get all the answers.
Next, October has come! Not only is it my 2nd favorite month of the year for a multitude of reasons, it's one last month to give the business one last big push to hit all the goals for the year. The fourth quarter has arrived.
Also, I met some amazing individuals who are soon to be DreamStarter Published Authors and preparing to take their marketing efforts to the next level. A book is one way to change your life and our streamlined/proven process allows anyone to have a chance to use their story as a competitive advantage.
Another thing that happened this week was our client, Gerald Williams, who is a professional athlete, educator, and entrepreneur became a bestselling author with his book THE 25th HOUR. It's an awesome read and I highly recommend you check it out. For the rest of his life, he can be introduced as BESTSELLING AUTHOR. What an incredible way to be remembered.
Last, but not least, my hero, Tom Petty died. Some of my most precious moments in my life can be remembered listening to his music. His music has got me through so many tough times. It's motivated me to get one more rep at the gym, calm down around the fire at night, and even reminds me of that time I finally got my dream girl. To me, he is the single greatest singer/songwriter of all time and the world is much better off with his music in it.
My favorite song, THE WAITING, reminds me that everything that you want in life is out there for the taking. Most of the time it's already on it's way. It's there for YOU, if you just try for it and have a little patience. You can have anything you want if you are willing to go the extra mile.
Like the answers to the Las Vegas tragedy, or the suspense of Halloween, or that next big opportunity in business, or that moment of seeing your book at #1 on Amazon, it's all on it's way. As Tom Petty said after a tragedy in his life where he was told he would never play guitar again, "I knew I would play again, but I had to wait. And waiting is always the hardest part."
The time we have on this planet is never quite long enough. So say what you have to say, write what you have to write, and do what you have to do.
Go after what you want. If you don't, somebody else will. It might take months, years, or decades. Whatever the case, if it's worth anything at all, it's worth the wait, too.
Here is an incredible cover of Tom Petty's classic, The Waiting...
