Writing a Book Can Help You See Your Value and Potential
4 min read
This is an expanded 10-part series delving individually into the reasons why you should write a book and why I should be your guide based on this post.
Reason #2: A book allows you to see your value and potential
Author John Maxwell said, “Many people fail to grow and reach their potential because of low self-esteem.”
When I was depressed and contemplating suicide, my self-esteem was at an all-time low. I could not see any value or worth in my life. But I was motivated by the thought of a postage stamp and so I began to add value to my life, first by exchanging my negative thinking for more positive ones, I began to exercise, eat healthier and start back fellowshipping with my congregation.
When I began to write, I learned to get out of my head and to see my real potential and value as a human being. If you don’t realize you have genuine value or that you’re worth investing in, then you’ll never put in the time or effort required to grow.
One of my favorite motivational speakers Zig Ziglar said, “It’s impossible to consistently behave in a manner inconsistent with how we see ourselves. We can positively do very few things if we feel negative about ourselves.”
I know for a fact, that every aspect of our lives is directly impacted by the way we see ourselves. When you write and pour out your heart onto paper, you begin to see how far you’ve gotten in life, and all that you’ve accomplished.

Here are five more ways that writing a book can help you see your value and potential:
Reflection on your experiences: Writing a book requires you to reflect on your life experiences, which allows you to see your own value and potential. As you delve into the details of your life, you may come to realize how much you have learned and grown over time. This can give you a renewed sense of self-worth and confidence.
Creativity and self-expression: Writing a book allows you to tap into your creativity and uniquely express yourself. This can help you discover new talents and abilities you didn’t know you had. As you create, you may surprise yourself with your imagination and originality.
Accomplishment: Writing a book is a significant accomplishment that requires time, dedication, and hard work. As you make progress and reach milestones, you’ll feel a sense of pride and accomplishment that can boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Sharing your story: Writing a book allows you to share your story with others. By sharing your experiences, insights, and knowledge, you can help others learn from your mistakes and successes. This can give you a sense of purpose and fulfillment, as you see how your story can positively impact others.
Personal growth: Writing a book can be a transformative experience that helps you grow as a person. Through the process of writing, you may gain new insights, perspectives, and a deeper understanding of yourself and the world around you. This can help you see your value and potential in a new light.
The act of creating something valuable and meaningful to others is a feeling like no other.
