Change "Want" to "Will"

A simple language trick to get yourself into action

A book coach is someone who helps you get your best ideas onto the page in the most compelling way. Book coaches have editing, emotional, language, mindset and project management skills. They also have the best job in the world as they read, write, and help people.

When I discovered this profession existed, I almost fell off the chair.

“I want to be a nonfiction book coach for non-native English writers!

But “want” — in that sentence — is a weak verb. In The Lemon Tree Mindset by Veronica Llorca-Smith, I learned that changing “want” to “will” when stating your goals can have a powerful effect on the brain.

“I will be a nonfiction book coach for non-native English writers!”

Damn that’s good.
