Mary Oliver

When I do my presentation at schools and corporations about embracing failure and having grit, I start with the Mary Oliver quote, “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” Will you be bold, fearless and grateful?  Will you...

Becoming

I am reading Michelle Obama’s memoir Becoming and it is an excellent book.  What a journey she travelled from the South Side of Chicago sharing the top floor of a house with her parents and brother to the White House.  She remembers being drawn in when she went...

This year they wanted the gold

My 15-year-old son and I are just back from an away hockey tournament.  He’s played with this group of boys for a few years and they have all grown close.  They have been to this tournament a number of times, but always ended up with silver.  This year they...

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
