jeff-goins-siteLets start with a question on todays episode of Join Up Dots.

And this is a fundamental question that can derail so many peoples dreams before they even start.

How do you become something that you want to be, if you have no history, or very little history in doing that thing?

How do you get to the point when other say….”oh you are so and so, I love your work!”

Well, I’ll give you some thinking time whilst you ponder this.

Well the answer is what todays guest did.

You simply start doing that thing, keep on doing it, and be consistent until you can say that you are that thing.

He wanted to be a writer, but was trapped with his daily life, family responsibilities and a myriad of other things.

So he made a decision to start writing and made the time.

And it didn’t matter if the time was unnatural and not conducive to developing his craft, he would write.

And now in a few short years is the author of The In-Between, Wrecked, You Are a Writer and now his latest work Art Of Work.

And as he says “I now spend my time writing books and trying to take over the Internet.”

So how did he overcome those same self-limiting thoughts that stop so many people in their tracks?

And is he proud of all his writing, or can he now see that the work has improved dramatically due to the constant effort, or the personal belief that comes with achievement?

Well let’s bring onto the show to start joining up dots, as we discuss the words of Steve Jobs in todays Free podcast, with the one and only Jeff Goins.

Show Highlights

During the show we discussed such weighty topics as:

How he remembers the seven years of struggle and persistence that went into the point when he started to get noticed by the world. Seven years that no one thinks happened.

How he maintains that there is a thing inside all of that is waiting to grow into something if we only look for it hard enough.

Why it is so important to have close mentors and friends in your life, who can show you things about yourself that are too close for you to see.

How he felt such great achievement when he realized that his list of goals that he had kept for ten years had all been achieved in the last two.

And lastly……..

Why it is so important to write the words as if you are speaking to the individual, to build the personal connection that you want with your audience.
