Sheldon, tell us about your book?
Many people make New Year’s Resolutions year after year. And sadly, they keep making the same resolutions because they failed to reach their goals the year before. Failure is the result of broken focus. “Diligence, The Master Key To Achieving Your Goals” is written to show people how they can reach their goals and some of them, sooner than they may think possible. It teaches how to master procrastination and pursue our dreams with focus, persistence and determination. If we learn to keep the main thing the main thing, we will find that things happen for us and in our favor more often than not.
How did you come up with idea for this book?
I had written on the subject of diligence before, and felt ready to write a new one. While doing so, Diligence, The Master Key To Achieving Your Dreams, just came to me by inspiration and I began to write down practical ways people can reach their goals.
What was the most difficult aspect of writing this book?
Simply finding the time to write. This can be difficult when we have to factor in family and church work.
What valuable lessons do you want readers to learn from your book?
The main lesson I would like for people to understand is that we are all capable of far more than many of us have even dared to dream. God has made us unique and we all have something to contribute to the welfare of humanity. It is my prayer that people understand this and walk out their true purpose in this earth.

It is here that I get my greatest inspiration, even regarding with issues to write about to help people find purpose and meaning in life.
If you had to choose, which writer would you consider a mentor?
I would have to say, Dr. Myles Munroe. To me, he is an out-standing leader and motivator for writers and ministers like me. He is diligent and very, very focused on his mission and purpose in life, and I constantly learn from him.
Any advice to give to aspiring writers?
Yes. Stop procrastinating and get your book done. You can do it. And there are people who may need what you have to share. So get over your fear of yourself and write that book that is in your heart and then get it out there where it can inspire, encourage and motivate a generation for good.
Why do you write?
First of all, I write because I believe I have a God given gift to communicate through the printed page. Secondly I write to help others be or become all they were born to be. God has placed gifts and abilities within all of us. A part of my purpose is to show people how to develop and walk in the gifts. And thirdly, to help people receive all that God has provided for them.
