I was reading the latest blog post on Powered by Intuition. In the post author Angela Artemis comments how she had never checked the ranking on her book “Navigating by Intuition” on amazon – until someone else commented on her “high” ranking. When she finally remembered some time later to check she found she was in the top 100 paid in kindle store for her book’s category.
Hah, it wasn’t until I read that sentence that I thought, “huh, wonder how my books rank.” Geez. So I went to look. And yes, like Angela, as it turns out I, too, am a top selling amazon author. My book “Surviving In-vitro Fertilization: IVF Stories and Inspiration from the Women who have been there” is a kindle best seller in 2 categories:
- Surviving In-vitro Fertilization – Amazon Best Sellers Rank:
- #16 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Nonfiction > Advice & How-to > Parenting & Families > Fertility
- #36 in Books > Health, Fitness & Dieting > Disorders & Diseases > Infertility
Who knew? I look at the amazon.com pages all the time, but for some reason I just never noted that particular stat. So, thanks, Angela!
The whole process got me thinking:
How often do we actually achieve success but are too busy moving onto the next goal to notice what we’ve already done?
Now I ask you, what success have you achieved that you have not taken the time to notice? Spend five minutes poking around because as Angela says, you never know.
Thank you to everyone who reads and supports my writing.
