This is your official invitation to join my book launch team for Like Me or Not: Overcoming Approval Addiction.
I know your busy, and your to-do list has a to-do list of its own.
But I am going to share with you three convincing reasons why you want to make the time to be on my book launch team.
Here they are:
- You wonder if you are an approval addict.
- If you are, you need a method to talk about it.
- You want other people to know there is help available.
Now, if you’ve come to this wondering what a Launch team even is, allow me to address that question first.
Launch team’s for books became a popular method for big publishing houses to use to help their author’s gain more Amazon reviews.
Yep…that was the reason. To get reviews. Not a bad strategy when you think about it.
And yes, you will be sought out to help with Amazon Reviews, but I have a more important reason than that one.
You see, I didn’t write this book for Amazon review, to build a platform (it’s almost an oxymoron for an approval addict in recovery), or to become a “name” in the industry.
I wrote this book because I realized I wasn’t alone. I was so tired of the cycle I was in trying to deal with other people’s rejection, while desperately wanting others to approve of me. All the while wanting to crawl into a hole and forget interacting with people ever again. Are you with me?
We are all walking around stuck on our phones allowing social media to dictate our identities were feeling like we have to confirm, compare, and live up to more.
It’s mind-throbbing at times – but it doesn’t have to be.
I am not an expert, but God has allowed me to have some experiences that have led me to identify scripture, PURE TRUTH, that has proven to break the cycle of approval addiction to find my approval in Him.
Which is why you too need to be on my book launch team so, let’s talk through each of these areas.
You Wonder if You are an Approval Addict
We all do, and none of us want to be. But the reality is that God created us with a desire to want the approval of others, including Him.
It doesn’t’ take much to see why it’s an easily formed addiction when we quite innocently want to seek the approval of those around us: spouses, children, friends, family, co-workers…our hair stylists and the guy at Lowe’s.
Hearing verbal affirmations feel good because they release dopamines. Those dopamines feel so good they’ll make you want more, and more, and more approval. Before you know it, you can’t get enough.
Being on my Launch Team means you get first access to the information inside the book that will help you learn how to lessen those desires and put your focus where it needs to be, on God.
You’ll be able to access all the different ways that approval addictions can manifest itself. Which leads to the next reason…
You Need a Method to Talk About It
Being an approval addict also means we desire justification from others, right? We need to know we are headed in the right direction and for the sake of enabling each other, we are going to do just that.
Each week I’ll get online with you through a closed Facebook group, and we’ll go through parts of the book together. If you are an external processor like me, you will love this part. I can’t wait to hear all you have to say and what questions you come up with for me.
You’ll want to know if you are doing the right thing, taking the right steps forward, using the concepts appropriately. Being on the Launch Team gets you the ability to do that with not just me but with women from all over the US.
There you can share all the great things you are learning to add even more value to the team.
You’ll Want to Let People Know There’s Help
Remember how it felt when you first came to know Jesus as your Savior, and you wanted to go and tell everyone? It was kind of like the women at the well. After she figured out Jesus was the Messiah she went and told the whole town about it. She couldn’t keep it to herself.
Yeah. Like that.
Well, once you start to understand the concepts laid out in this book – that will be you too. Because here is what I know for sure, you will experience healing and freedom. I promise you that.
How can I make that promise? Because I did and I still am.
Before writing the book God had shown me so much about approval addiction. Enough that I thought I could write a book about it. But God kept me humble by teaching me knew concepts with each chapter I wrote.
But since then I have re-read my book at least ten more times. Every time, there is another area God shows me that I still need to work on. As I do, I receive more healing and more freedom.
This is why you want to be apart of my Launch Team. Yeah, we’ll have you do some other fun activities like share memes on Facebook or Instagram. We may even ask you to write an Amazon Review online or ask your local bookstore to carry it. But by that time, you’ll be convinced that not only do you need this book, but everyone you know needs this book.
