039 - Becoming An Accidental Author

inspiration Apr 30, 2020

Hey Guys! Nicole Gabriel here!

Most of our listeners come in from the United States, but we have a few in Australia, Germany, France, and the Philippines as well. We’ve watched you come in from Minnesota, Utah, California, Ohio, Illinois, Oklahoma, Nebraska, and Kentucky this week. So let me say hello to you wherever you are! We are thankful you are here and you are enjoying the content. And, please let us know if we can provide any additional information that we haven’t provided…we’d be happy to do a show on that!

Over the last few weeks I have been busy recording the special author interviews that you’ve been listening to. It was a ton of work, but so much fun! I hope you have enjoyed them. I know I have! I’ve got plenty more to come as authors step forward ready to share their book and their story.

Interestingly, as I talked with authors over this time I found a few similarities to what they discussed in our interviews. First, most of them never aspired to be an author. The term “accidental author” was used a few times. I’ll talk about that here in a minute. Second, it seemed as if a large contributing factor to their overall book success was hiring a professional team for support. 

As we talked to Darin Watkins we learned that he was witness to a story that overcame him with a sense of responsibility to tell his own version. Autumn Shields talked about feeling the nudges and living a life alive. Chad Ellsworth talked about being bullied and organizing new structures to support anti-hazing and enhance kindness. Joanne Holbrook talked about overcoming life challenges and raising children using stories. And Davide di Giorgio talked about empowering our youth. In this summary of authors we might say, combined they give us the message to follow our nudges and to share what they have been witness to and evolved into as they transformed themselves…to inspire and empower their audiences for the greater good of the whole.  

Inspired action might be the key that makes your book dream a reality. Perhaps it is awakening from an unconscious or victim state or perhaps it’s just hearing a really wonderful story that bears repeating or gives us the needed permission to live a life alive.

Inspired action doesn’t always begin as a plan of action. It isn't always something you think about ahead of time where you create a list of steps to take to making your dream a reality. You know in your gut when you need to make a move. 

When it comes to your book project…listen for that little voice in your head to guide you, to give you that internal direction, and follow through on that guidance, you might find yourself achieving your goal of writing a book easier and faster than you expected. You might even feel as if a miracle occurred when something greater than you comes through you and out in the form of a the written word.

The accidental author is manifest when you are overtaken by a passionate need to share your voice and your ego takes a back seat. Some of the best ideas happen when you least expect them to and you have to strike while the iron is hot. Allow that fire in your belly to drive your inspired ideas and you'll be amazed at the synchronicity and perfect divine timing of the message you have to share. The accidental author happens when you take a leap of faith without the need to be perfect first. You will always be rewarded for taking inspired action. A quote by Gary Zu-kav:

“When we align our thoughts, emotions, and actions with the highest part of ourselves, we are filled with enthusiasm, purpose and meaning. Life is rich and full. We have no thoughts of bitterness. We have no memory of fear. We are joyously and intimately engaged with our world. This is the experience of authentic power.” 

When you are in alignment with your thoughts, emotions, and actions something magical happens. You begin to trust your intuition, find your flow, and take action as the accidental author. As Confucious said:

“The man who moves mountains begins by carrying away small stones.”

The accidental author realizes the truth that thoughts really do create things. The desire to write a book is a manifestation of thoughts brought into reality. Thoughts and feelings create opportunities for inspired action…and the inspired action enables you to manifest your desires. It’s when this desire drives you more than it doesn’t that your book will see it’s completion. 

A quick podcast to simply keep you inspired…
