"Live Inspired" by Michelle Sedas

Book Title: Live Inspired by Michelle Sedas
Publisher: The Walk The Talk Company
Release date: November 2009

Michelle, what inspired you to write the book?
I'm so thankful for my life and each breath I've been given. I don't want to waste a single thought on negativity. I wrote the book to inspire others to have this same attitude and to Live Inspired.

What is your favorite chapter/quote or page in the book and why?
I just love the quote from Sally Cofer-Lindberg, one of the Inspired Living Cafe community members, "Living inspired is born in the awareness that this is it! We have one chance at life. And the wonderful gift we are given every morning is the choice of how we are going to live that moment, that day." She just sums up Living Inspired so well!

Do you have other books you have written? If yes, what are they?
Welcome The Rain and coauthor of The Power of 10%

Is there a particular event that stands out to you that helped you become an author?
It has always been a lifelong dream of mine.

Was there a person in your life who believed in you more than you believed in yourself? If so, who was that person?
My father has always valued my work and has often encouraged me to write.

What advice would you give to writers wishing to have their works published? Write a lot and read a lot.

Who is your favorite author? Marisa de los Santos

What is your favorite quote?
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing; the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” Viktor Frankl

What is your main goal with your book?
My main goal is to inspire others to find the courage to live the life of their dreams!

Michelle - Thanks for the book and for the interview! You are inspiring and I really enjoy your positive energy and outlook on life! :)
