Featuring Author and Radio Host Robert Sharpe
"If you're an author and you want to make a difference, write about what made a difference to you."
Robert Sharpe took his own wise advice and finally made the leap to follow his life purpose. He has created two powerfully positive books and his radio show, Bringing Inspiration to Earth.
In this interview, Robert and I discussed how people's adversity can often lead to something positive. An example he gave was the response from women to author Donna Andersen, a guest on his show. Her story about her marriage to a sociopath helped several of his listeners to escape from a similar situation. One listener told Robert hearing Donna on the show actually saved her life.
Robert's advice to budding authors is: "If you want to write something unique, that no one else has written about, then write about yourself. Each story is unique in it's own way. It does take courage, but it's worth writing about. Share your struggles and success - that's what people gravitate toward."
Robert said, "someone is always going to be critical. But as an author, the purpose is to increase the consciousness of people. Focus on how you can contribute." Your book can be a reference, something a reader can return to time and time again. Your book can last beyond your own existence. Your words go on beyond you, and create a ripple effect.
