A few days ago I invited those who have kindly read my autobiography I’ll Do It Myself and now had questions to ask away.
My barefooting friend Karen Putz responded with “What’s the most profound lesson you’ve learned since writing the book?”
My response: What a great question, Karen! I had to give this one some thought before the answer struck, and then it was so obvious.
One of my reasons for writing the book was to help people, but what I didn’t realize until the book had been released to the world was how powerful sharing one’s story can be.
Although my story might be vaguely familiar to another’s, say, for example My Left Foot by Christy Brown, my perspective and lessons learned are what make my story unique; that is what connects, touches or inspires someone else in ways I could not have imagine.
Even though I do not consider my story to be spectacular or extraordinary, the act of sharing my story and impacting others is where the power and magic of writing the book lies.
Now it is your turn…if you have read I’ll Do It Myself and now have a question, ask away in the comment section below.
Also, if worthy, please consider writing a review on Amazon.
