About a year ago I came across a book that I had the chance to get as a free eBook.
By then I've read plenty of self-help books (or started reading them), but none have made an impact on my life as huge as this one. It's an essential read for today's young writers, authors, artists, coaches, any entrepreneurs of all ages. Even high school students will find it very useful.
It's Peter Voogd's book 6 Months to 6 Figures.
Before then, I read the book The Slight Edge by Jeff Olson. It focuses on discipline to make smarter choices for a better and healthier future. I enjoyed reading that, but there was something missing.
Then an author whose newsletter I subscribed to recommended 6 Months to 6 Figures to her readers because it changed her life.
At first I was skeptical about the title. I had a bad attitude about money or even wanting more money. But the truth is, everyone wants to be successful...
And there's nothing wrong with wanting to make more money to do that.
One of the biggest things I learned reading 6 Months to 6 Figures:
Stop doing what you don't want to do. If it doesn't give you any value, if it doesn't allow you to help others the way you do best, then don't do it anymore.
For some of you, it may be easy, and for more, it's harder than others to leave a job you don't like.
But that's the thing. Not everyone is a good fit for a conventional job. If it would do more harm than good to have a "real" job, you should be doing something meaningful.
And I mean something meaningful to YOU.
For me, that's writing and creating. I write better than I speak, so if writing is what I do best, I'm sticking with that. I can help more people this way. And I have to do it in my own element: a quiet room, alone. I am easily overstimulated and easily get distracted, so working at a store or office would visibly deteriorate my health.
I have to think about what's best for me, before I can properly help others.
Now, Peter Voogd's book 6 Months to 6 Figures is a #1 bestseller, and it's a bestseller for a reason. Times have changed. The old rules about work that have been around for decades don't apply anymore.
I'm re-reading this book, not only because it requires more than one reading, but because I find comfort knowing I don't have to "fit in" to be successful.
Unfortunately the eBook isn't free now. But Peter Voogd does have a FREE 4-part video training series coming up soon. It's called 30 Days to Your First $1k. Peter will teach you how to to generate your first $1,000 in just 30 days. And you'll get the gist of what his book is about, and more.

This free video series will be available only for a very limited time, so don't wait! I hope Peter's video series convinces you to see things differently.
Happy viewing! :)
