Yesterday was the second anniversary of the release of my book Stadium Status. In total I’ve written 11 books but none of them would’ve happened if it wasn’t for one person.
Let me explain…
Most everyone can expect support and encouragement from family and close friends. But support from people you don’t necessarily expect to get it from can make all the difference.
I share this with you because back in 2012 I almost didn’t finish writing my first book, The Coach Approach.
Back in 2010, reader Michele Eaton would reply and comment on my articles. This was at a time when nobody else was responding to my writing. She would frequently reach out to me and tell me she thought I was an amazing writer and let me know how much she valued and enjoyed my articles. These were the right words at the right time.
As a result, I found the resolve to finish writing The Coach Approach.
It wasn’t until now as I look back on this that I realize the magnitude of her message.
I’m sure there was other positive feedback I received from people but because of the timing of her comments they meant more to me that she ever knew.
This is why I’m asking you to do one thing for me after you read this…
Look for people around you who are working hard at something and let them know you appreciate their talent and tell them you believe in them.
I’m not talking about people like me. I’m talking about people like me ten years ago.
There are more people than you realize who need to hear that from someone. People on the backroads of their profession quietly toiling away honing their craft, pouring their blood, sweat and tears into all they do with very few people noticing.
I am proof that the right words at the right time means more than you know. And it can mean the difference between persevering and quitting. Between success and failure.
It’s why I’m here today doing what I’m doing. There have been people like Michele along the way who have shared their encouragement.
To celebrate the two year anniversary of #StadiumStatus if you order a copy before 11:59pm EST tonight, I’ll ship TWO additional signed copies to anyone you want me to send them to as a gift from YOU to them. (Just indicate names and mailing addresses in the order notes.)
