Confessions from The Writing Bunker #7

I’m in the final hours of cramming to get the rough draft of my book finished, my deadline is less than two weeks away eeeeeeeeeeeeee!, and today I share with you a hopefully helpful realization about what we Can and Can’t do and how to light a fire under your fanny to get er done.

Success is a mindset. Never forget that. I had this truth shoved in my face this week:

    Great video Jen. Good luck with your deadlines. What a great point about can’t vs don’t want.

    Your book was life changing and I look forward to both the calendar and the new book!

    Sooo I am in a decisive rough patch in my little world. When I heard you say “to get clear the difference between can’t and don’t wanna”, the self bullshit meter went off and I had to laugh. Then I had a moment of panic as I thought, great I really have to change some things..but I am lazy and a bit fearful. I would love to tell you how wonderful your videos are, but their not. They’re amazing. I just love having the covers pulled and you do a great job of that. Thanks for the wake up call you planted in this video. Rach

    Never directly thought about this, but yeah, definitely true.

    You can do things at shitty inconvenient times, WHEN YOU HAVE TO!

    YOU CAN DO EEEET JEN!!! Can’t wait for the new book! I hope you do a big national book release tour and I want to schedule you to come to my town! (Phoenix) Side note: I love the french doors in your house… so lovely!

    One of those days, surrender, accept. Then go and kick the appropriate ass(es). Right now, i’m thinking, how would Lois and Peter Griffin handle this one?😎

    “Can’t” vs. “don’t wanna” (That awkward moment when your life coach calls you out on your crap.) Thank you for that!

    I got my results back from my Japanese writing test last weekend and I officially passed! I went from “I have no frikkin idea if this is even possible for me” to done and done over the course of 3 months. Not too shabby for a badass like me and this video series helped me make it happen.

    I hope that my success story is a little quid pro quo for you and helps motivate you to write today. If I can learn to write in a bunch of little pictures, you can write this book. We love you Jen! <3

    I just had the privilege to listen to your “I am a badass” and was beyond excited. I started with Chapter 1 and made notes and intend to continue this way through each chapter.
    My problem is, one little glitch in my daily routine and I am blown right out of the water. I revert right back to my pathetic life and way of thinking. Once I get in this stupor I am stuck. I cannot think about anything else and it even keeps me from sleeping because I am obsessed with it. How do I get pass this?
