Y’all don’t have a clue how many book ideas I have running through my brain at any given time. Currently, I’m working on two book ideas with another three ideas in my head for future books.
I’m not sure if y’all deal with this, but I have to work on this doubting “soundtrack” playing in my head which tries to distract me.
What is a soundtrack? I’m glad you asked. The soundtrack for me is the repeated doubtful words which play in my head like a scratched soundtrack record.
My soundtrack tries to tell me: This book isn’t going to be good enough, no one will purchase it and so much more. All lies!
The interesting thing is if allowed the soundtrack will cause you to doubt things which have never happened. 🤯
How crazy is that? I’m doubting things that have never taken place. When I look at the facts – I’m grateful that I’ve never had a book sell zero copies, but even if I did it wouldn’t be the end of the world. Life would go on.
I’ve learned I have to silence the soundtrack.
How do I silence the soundtrack? I silence the soundtrack with the word of God. Every time this soundtrack tells me I can’t, I find a scripture that says I can. If it tells me, I won’t, I remind myself I’m more than a conqueror.
My Pastor often says, the enemy can’t stop your destiny; however, he can cause you to doubt yourself with the soundtrack playing in your head.
What soundtrack should you replace?
This blog was inspired by, the book entitled, “Soundtracks”, by Jon Acuff.
