Why Should You Write A Book? (3 Reasons You Should, Even If You’re Not A Writer)

Note: This post was originally published on BrianTracy.com

Let me start by telling you this:

You can learn how to write a book.

Inside of you, there lies the ability to write your first book on a subject that’s important to you.

I’ve written and published over 70 books in as many as 42 languages and sold over 10 million copies over the years.

I accomplished this after starting from nothing, and not knowing what I was doing at all.

There are several reasons why I decided to do this…

But the biggest reason was to spread my message about subjects that I felt very passionate about.

Today I want to talk to you about why you should write your first book and the many benefits that come from being a published author.

Learn to quickly and easily organize your book and get it into the hands of the right people with my 20-Step Author Quick Start Guide.

1) Writing A Book Is A Skill You Can Master

Just like riding a bicycle, writing a book is a skill that you can master with focused practice and repetition.

Before I started writing books, I never considered myself to be a writer. I didn’t graduate high school and I failed high school English. So if I can do it, you can too.

I’ve created several resources and courses that will teach you exactly HOW to write your first book, including my best-selling product How to Write a Book and Become a Published Author, but today I want to talk about why writing a book and becoming a published author will change your life.

2) Writing A Book Is An Instant Credibility Booster

From a business perspective, writing a book is the fastest way to gain credibility, establish yourself as an expert in your field, and build a professional reputation. It can also be used as a promotional item and marketing tool for your business.

Think about it: What sort of impression do you get when you meet someone who has become a published author?

Without even knowing them, you might assume that if they were able to write an entire book and get it published, they must be an expert.

3) You Can Share Your Message With Others

Another reason you should write a book is because it provides an opportunity for you to write and publish something on a subject that is important to you, and that you will have for the rest of your life. You can express your creativity while sharing your message with others.

One of the Universal Laws of Success is the “Law of Service” and it says:

Your rewards in life will be in direct proportion to the value of your service to others. The more you work, study, and develop your ability to contribute more to the lives and well-being of others, the better life you will have in all areas.

Chances are if you are passionate about a certain subject, other people are too. And by writing a book about that subject, you can help others in their own lives and, in turn, help yourself achieve a more fulfilled life.

Before we wrap up, I have a thought for you to share with your friends and followers:

“True happiness and fulfillment come when you feel that you are making a valuable contribution to your world.” @BrianTracy
