Your Heart’s Calling

I’m starting on my next book, Your Heart’s Calling, and I’d appreciate your help, as would my future readers.

Do you have a story about how you had a dream in your heart, but were afraid to go after it? The obstacles seemed so big! But you followed your heart, moved through the obstacles and fears, and came out the other side – and are so grateful you did!

If you’ve had this experience, you can help others who are facing fears to follow their heart. They would love to read your story for inspiration.

It’s quick and easy to submit. There are two ways to do it:

  1. You can email me your story using the guidelines below. Not more than 2 pages typed.
  2. You can click the RECORD button below and record your story up to 10 minutes long. If it’s one that I use, I’ll have it transcribed and send you the wording for approval.

Stories will be edited for grammar and style, without changing the nature of your story. You’ll have final approval before use in my book. Plus…

FOR YOUR HELP If I use your story in my book, I’ll gift you with a 20-30 minute free consultation where we can talk about how your story fits into your bigger life purpose, what your Soul was wanting you to learn and grow from the experience, or any other way your experience contributes to your life lessons. It’s not a hypnosis session, rather talking to help you see your story from different perspectives. Plus, I’ll send you a free autographed copy of the book.

GUIDELINES:

To make it easier, you can follow this outline for your story:

  1. Describe your heart’s desire. What is it you wanted to be, do, or create? How strong was your desire?
  2. What were your biggest fears? What would you lose (or afraid you would lose) if you pursued your dream?
  3. What were you biggest obstacles? What stood between you and your dream?
  4. What helped you decide to “go for it anyway!”?
  5. What action steps did you take to move toward your dream?
  6. What happened along the way?
    1. Did you receive unexpected help or support?
    2. Did more obstacles come up?
    3. Describe your journey
  7. What was the outcome?
    1. Did your dream come out as you had planned, or did it change?
    2. What is your life like now that you have followed your heart’s calling?

TO SUBMIT:

If by email: send to ncanning@capecod.net

If by recording: Use the record button below.
When recording, include your full name and email so I can contact you. It won’t be part of the story. Keep your story as brief as possible–you don’t have to use the whole 5 minutes allowed. If you run out of time and have more to say, send the first recording and then do another one. Follow the guidelines above and be sure to include what your life is like now.

  1. Smart phones & tablets record better than laptops, although you may have to download the free SpeakPipe app unless you use your laptop.
  2. Hit the “start recording” button below.
  3. Allow” microphone access (it says camera access too but cameras are not accessed).
  4. The recording begins instantly (you’ll see how much time you have left out of 5 minutes).
  5. Hit “stop” when you’re done. You can listen & rerecord if necessary before submitting.
