The Leap Of Your Life Book Cover Reveal
“Tommy, where have you been? I haven’t seen you much doing live videos and promoting your work.”
During the last 5 months of 2018, I’ve been in the trenches and gotten various questions like the above.
And I love it, because as Seth Godin asks:
When you’re gone, will they miss what you do?
Because of my consistency across the Resist Average Academy podcast, my VIP email newsletter, social media, Instagram and Facebook (and now YouTube, too):
People are used to seeing my face and hearing my voice.
(Don’t worry…sometimes I even get sick of it too.)
But today I’m going to reveal what I’ve been working on during the last 6 months, and also share a lesson with you on how to know it’s time to focus and double down.
You Can Do Anything…But You Can’t Do Everything
As a writer, I write every single day. There is no time off —including birthdays, weekends and holidays. Last year alone, I tallied up over 550,000 words (and those are the ones I counted.)
In other words, I’m always writing.
But after The 1% Rule —I had planned on putting my attention and focus squarely on my coaching and consulting business where I help high performing entrepreneurs and executives tap into their purpose, power and profit.
But then a door opened, and I couldn’t say no.
(This is the power of not waiting to be discovered to get started.)
I was given an opportunity to write a new book, this time working hand in hand with one of the biggest publishers in the game.
There was only one problem.
(Actually, there was two.)
First, we didn’t have much time —and second, I had some ideas for a book but I hadn’t found something I could not write.
(This is what you want to aim for in any creative work: what you can’t not do.)
But I committed anyway, and went all in.
And the lesson I want to share with you is simple: there is no perfect time, or right moment —until you make it one.
Because the moment I chose to take a leap on this opportunity, the book I couldn’t write came to life deep within my heart and soul.
However, knowing what you and I must do is only step one —from there, we have to ensure we are saying “no” to every possible distraction.
The Power Of Saying No…Even To Thousands Of Dollars
If you follow me at all, you realize focus, structure and discipline are big parts of my message. The reason is simple: this is so often in the way of most people’s deepest desires coming to life.
But when you say yes to a big project in your life and business —you have to say no to a ton of other opportunities.
Otherwise, the work suffers or may never get done.
For me, this meant saying no to all new incoming clients —people who were ready to pay me anywhere from $2,500 to $10,000 for coaching, masterminds and intensive experiences.
It wasn’t easy, but it was required.
This is the second lesson I wanted to share with you:
When you double down on something deeply important to you —you’ll have to say no often.
Okay, I know the blog title is about the cover reveal and now I’m rambling too much.
The Leap of Your Life Cover Reveal
Here is the cover for my brand new book, The Leap Of Your Life: How to Redefine Risk, Quit Waiting For ‘Someday,’ and Live Boldly.
Again, this is the book I couldn’t not write, and a message that is deep within my soul.
Because if there’s anything I’ve learned over the years about living our best life and truly making our dreams come true:
It won’t happen sitting on the sidelines waiting, pondering and analyzing.
It happens when you and I choose to defy logic and reasoning —and make a bold decision.
Not for anyone else, but for the person in the mirror.
This is the beautiful, riveting story we’re all here to experience and share with others.
Because for a while, I was on the path of a life I didn’t want —and this is where most people find themselves:
Experiencing a daily, sinking feeling of regret, hopelessness and ‘what could have been.’
Every day, then —becomes a reminder of what hasn’t happened.
I wrote this to help you step into your power, release what’s been in the way —and create the life you know is out there for you.
So you can do exactly what you’ve known you must do but somehow have let fear stop you cold and win.
I put my mind, body and spirit into this work like I’ve never done before.
Most importantly, during the last half decade I’ve given myself permission to follow the principles inside like never before.
The book comes out on April 2nd, but is already available for pre-order on the major booksellers like Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
NOTE: It’s super early, so if you pre-order 5 or more copies, you’re not only going to get the books…but forward your receipt to our team, and I’ll do a Breakthrough Coaching Session with you. Normally, I charge $275 for these.)
What do you think of the cover? I’d love to hear it!
