An invitation to join the book tour adventure.August 5th, 2009
The Falling Uphill Book Tour continues.
Currently, I am in Wisconsin, my home state. I have been really impressed with the hospitality and friendliness. It’s so refreshing not to be lost in the shuffle. And I’ve discovered that one of the best ways to bring my book to life is by speaking to the local schools. It can be overwhelming at times to be the center of a mad rush of 150 students, but I love to see their eyes sparkle with inspiration.
I shall be here a few months as I try a new strategy of planting some seeds. I have discovered in my traipsing around the country is that a rolling stone gathers no moss, but it also gathers no community either, and I’ve come to believe our greatest resource on the planet is our network of friends.
So, I’d like to extend an invitation to join my adventure.
Of course, bicycling isn’t everyone’s dream, but everyone has dreams. Why not join me for a ride through the countryside as an example that you can take that first small step in your own personal adventure of discovery? Why not challenge yourself and inspire your loved ones by sharing the adventure for an hour?
Maybe you’re not a bicyclist but your passionate about the message. Why not help co-create the adventure (and your own) by helping network, or just sharing a hot cup of coffee and a warm conversation. If you’re a really ambitious community member why not plan a speaking engagement at your business, church or school, or organize a local bike ride in your town. Some quick ideas.
Thanks to everyone for helping to make our “impossible” dreams possible
PS. I’m creating this as I go along, and I’ve literally risked everything I have, and teaching myself the same lessons, so if it’s any comfort to those who may be feeling too fearful to risk living the life they truly want to live—believe me!— we are all in the same boat.
