Find out who we already are

In The War of Art, Stephen Pressfield said, “Our job in this life is not to shape ourselves into some ideal we imagine we ought to be, but to find out who we already are and become it.” To find out who we already are and become it. You know that feeling you have when...

I can’t believe the day has finally come. I am a published author!
I decided in the year 2000 to write a book and I made a goal of 100 rejection letters because Dr. Seuss got 43 for his first story. To date I am at 32 rejections for various manuscripts. Then on January 1, 2016 I started a weekly blog which led to my becoming a blog contributor for The Huffington Post. I decided to turn the first year of my blog into a book and here we are.
The Treasure You Seek is about following your heart, believing in yourself beyond reason, embracing failure and knowing that you are enough. It includes inspirational stories about famous failures, cultural icons, world leaders and regular folks like you and me. The goal is to remind us that we have all we need to be the change we wish to see. A perfect read for graduates from elementary school through university, people starting their career, changing jobs or retiring, friends going through a medical crisis, new parents, empty nesters and anyone who wants to be inspired.
I would be so thrilled if you would consider buying a copy for yourself and your friends and sharing it in your networks. Each mini-story is like a sip of coffee to perk up your day. I would love to know the date of your favourite entry. Post about it on Facebook or Instagram tagging #TheTreasureYouSeek and #SiobhanKukolic
