Having trouble committing to your goals? Maybe you start but don't finish. Here's a the best way to accomplish all of your goals: Put yourself in a position where your back is against the wall. Take some kind of committed step that you can't turn back on without discomfort.
Discomfort doesn't mean physical harm, but it can include: financial loss or social shame. The discomfort has to be real and significant or you won't execute. If you dont like the idea of discomfort, call it an "earnest deposit". Something that is non-refundable.
99% of my clients publish their books within 1 to 4 weeks of a major event. Their backs were against the wall, they overcame all their fears, and finished-- within 30 days-- a book they had been working on for years.
When your back is against the wall, you will shed all fear, all precaution, and trust in your inate ability to achieve.
Three ways to put your back against the wall:
1. Put Your Money where Your Mouth Is:
As an entrepreneur I'm committed to my professional growth. Therefore I invest in business coaching. Now, I MUST utilize and execute my training in order to make the money required to cover the commitment.
2. Get an Accountability Partner:
Make this person someone you trust and someone who is skilled at being candid and honest. When you are held accountable it becomes uncomfortable when you don't execute your goals.
3. Tell the World:
This doesn't mean you give out the detailed plans of your goal, but by putting your word out there, it will become more uncomfortable to not execute.
Put your back against the wall. When you can't take flight, you will fight!

Three tips on making daily money.
1. Start paying attention:
There are soooo many opportunities to make money with your books. Pay attention to the sources, resources, and opportunities. If you sell an ebook, take the time to research who bought the book and why? Who else out there is like the person who just bought your book. Pay attention when you sell a book and you will begin to see your opportunities to make money, daily.
2. Don't take the small days for granted: When you learn to save and reinvest the $3.00 or even $0.60, you'll start earning more. Consider the small days to be drips of water in a bucket. Leave the bucket there. Don't touch it. Just let the drips continue to accumulate and look for more ways to turn the drip into a steady flow.
3. Maximize every moment: When you start paying attention, you will begin to see opportunities all around. If you work with other people and you have not told every person in the office about your book, then you are missing out on opportunities. Opportunities are not going to force themselves upon you. You have to step out of your comfort zone and make them happen.
