Writing a book has many benefits.
It establishes you as an expert, for example. A book can generate more publicity and sales, and it’s an income stream in and of itself.
Plus, it’s super satisfying to start with an idea in your head and end up with a real book in your hand!
But there are other benefits as well.
These are 3 benefits writing books brought me that pleasantly surprised me.
👉#1 Strengthens and clarifies your message & deepens your own knowledge
When you write a book, you need to know more about your topic than you need to fill a blog or two. Not only that, but you also need to think about your topic and message more.
What exactly do you want to write about? What do you want your reader to know about this topic? And how do you share your knowledge in a clear, understandable way?
Answering these questions deepens your own knowledge and expertise. You need to dive deeper and fill the gaps of things you don’t know yet.
You need to make sure your message is crystal clear for your reader.
You learn a lot about your topic from writing a book, even when you think you already know all there is to know about it.
👉#2 Personal growth
This is a BIG benefit. Writing a book is definitely a highway to personal growth (just like having your own business is, too).
(Almost) all your fears, doubts and insecurities show up when you write and publish a book.
Are you afraid to make yourself visible? This fear shows up. Do you fear criticism or suffer from imposter syndrome? These fears show up.
Do you doubt if you’re good enough and if people are interested in you or your work? These doubts show up.
ANY doubts you have about yourself, your work, your value, your worth and your place in the world WILL get triggered when you write a book.
AND … there are ways to work through that. These doubts don’t have to hold you back!
And when you move past them, and you publish your book inspite of your insecurities, fears & doubts?
You gain so much inner freedom and power!
Plus, you also gain:
👉#3 More courage
I’ve grown so much with every book I published! (5 books so far.) And I’ve gained a lot of courage that helps me in other areas of my business and life as well.
Writing a book is fun and rewarding on so many levels!
If you’ve ever dreamed of writing a book, I can only tell you one thing:
Go for it!!
You won’t regret it.
(And your business will benefit from your book, too!)
