Passion And Purpose -The Two Key Elements For Writing

Nov 8, 2007
Do you have a goal of becoming an author with a best selling title under your name? Do you find yourself lacking the right reasons or purpose in writing your book?

Here's a real life example that shares what drove me to produce my best selling book.

What happened was that when I started to learn multiple learning techniques from different people and had achieved getting good results through the use of these techniques. I wad so excited to share my experiences with the techniques that I had applied, so I started telling all my friends about it.

And the next thing I did was writing the information on A4 pieces of paper.
I started photocopying, and gave them to my friends as articles. It was not even typewritten because at that point of time, I did not know how to use the computer. Thus every week I was producing these handwritten articles on A4 pieces of paper.

Every week, all my friends in school would be receiving an article from Adam. For example, this week the article will be "How to improve your memory". The next day, the article will be "How to Speed Read" and I just wrote and wrote and wrote.

Time passed and I realized that I had this whole stack of handwritten articles. Then I told myself, "Wouldn't it be cool if I could put all these together and share it with the rest of the world?" These handwritten articles provided the groundwork that led to the production of the actual book.

And when I started writing, I realized that it would establish my authority and credibility as a trainer and speaker. This is itself a very good reason why most people should write books. So for example if you are a lawyer, by writing a book, you automatically establish yourself as the authority in law.

Ultimately what happened was it became a No 1 bestseller and provided an additional source of passive income for me.

The reason why a lot of people find it really tough to write, 5 pages, let alone 300 pages is because they are writing something they don't love writing about. Another reason is that it is not their true passion or their true interest.

If you were to ask a normal kid to write about what they learnt from the best computer games as well as all the secret codes, guess what? Most of them are able and can write at least 10 books on that.

And all of us, every single one of us know certain things that other people have little knowledge about and all of us have got certain areas of expertise, and something that we are interested in.

In other words, there is a book in every single one of us. Therefore it's a question of finding the passion and purpose of that will lead to one writing a book.
