Love of learning

I had some time off work last week and I spent it by water with loved ones while reading and listening to podcasts.   I recently learned through the VIA Character Strength Survey that one of my character strengths is love of learning and this is how I fuel my...

Sapiens

The book Sapiens has been on my bedside table for about two years.  I have so many books to read and just did not get to it.  I started today and the first few paragraphs have me riveted.  And like many stories we have heard before, the book was rejected many times...

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
