Expectations can be dangerous for your motivation.
I often send off my newsletter last thing at night (UK time) and go off to bed, hoping my words will be well received and some of the things I offer will hit the mark.
But I have no real idea how it will play out.
Some things that I think are absolute steals will fall on deaf ears and others that I think, I’m not sure whether it will sell but it’s right for a few of my readers, fly off the virtual shelves.
It was always the same when I launched a book. Who knew what would be a hit?
For example, I was all excited about my diet book. I even called it “Excite diet.”
No one else was excited LOL
Some books just sell and others don’t.
Of course, you can do a lot to increase your chances of success by researching the market, creating the best product you can, writing a great sales letter, and pricing your product to offer fantastic value.
But you might still sell just a few.
Only if you have expectations.
Because when a thing doesn’t work like you expect it to, you might start to think that nothing ever will, but it’s just not true.
Instead, see every attempt to sell as an experiment.
Then stand back and watch, trying not to get emotionally attached to what happens. (Easier said than done, I know! I spent weeks of my life on that diet book 😢)
But it’s important because it’s so easy to get demotivated otherwise.
Every experiment is a success, no matter what the outcome is, because you will always get results that you can then act on.
You can change your product, your pricing, or your presentation, try again and get a different result.
And eventually you will succeed. 😊
