What’s Stopping You? – The Better Newsletter #1


Someone got in touch with me and said she has wanted to write a book for years.

I said. “What’s been keeping you from writing?”

“Well you know, I’ve been busy and I start it and then put it aside and then start it and run out of confidence and then start it and get imposter syndrome, so I just go back and forth on it.”

I nodded and said. “Fast forward to the end of your life, when you look back what will be one of your biggest regrets?”

She says, “That I never wrote the book that I always wanted to write.”

I say, “We can do something about that!”

If there’s anything I’ve learned about turning reasons into results, is you have to pick a date and just get started.


  • What is something you’ve always wanted to do, but keep putting it off?
  • Get out your calendar, pick a date to start, finish, or take a specific action.

Here’s to being better.

Until next time,
Sam Horn
