Dear Brilliant Ones, Fans + Passion-seekers,
I want to live in a world where everyone is doing the work they’re meant to do.
There are millions of people in this world that feel depressed because they have unlived or half-lived dreams within them. They may not believe they can find a passion or that they can thrive in the love they want to bring this world. I know that there is untapped brilliance in each of us: songs, books, cures, environmental sustainability, and the end of hunger, prejudice and other ills. I want to help inspire and support others in living their vision — which can help many others in the world. I believe it’s time for an Inspired Revolution. I know there is another way to work and live. I am living it.
I’ve been privileged to reach many thousands with my first book This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love. I am humbled and awed by the profound changes readers tell me they’ve made. I’ve also met many courageous souls at my retreats and workshops.
On August 30th I am launching a new book Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding in your Life’s Work! (Tarcher/Penguin) I am thrilled it has already been praised and endorsed by Michael Beckwith, Jack Canfield, Marci Shimoff, Kris Carr, SARK, and many others. One Spirit Book Club has just licensed it as well. In the weeks to come, I’ll tell you more about the book.
But right now, I’m reaching out to you to see if you’d like to join me in this Inspired Revolution. I believe in grass roots love and energy. Here’s my undertaking: I am putting myself on the road, to talk at bookstores, colleges, spiritual centers, business groups, etc. to help people stay in touch with their dearest dreams, their fire, the reason they’re here. I’m not just trying to sell a book. I want to be a voice and a presence for another belief system in this world. I want everyone to know they’re meant to succeed in the work they love. (No, alas, my publisher does not pay for a tour or marketing.)
I would love your help in getting this work into the world. We all have different resources to offer, different vegetables for the stew. You can make a tremendous difference to me, to this work, and to those who have cutting-edge movies to make, yoga studios to open, medical breakthroughs to discover, and need to be inspired to stay with their vision. What would it be like to believe in your dreams, if that was encouraged and supported by the mainstream? It takes a village and a bunch of hearts (and tweets) to get a message into the mainstream—especially a positive message. I’d love your help in any way that feels natural or exciting to you—in getting this work out there. You will know who you are and I am already grateful for you.
Here’s a passage from Inspired & Unstoppable:
“There is nothing wavy gravy about believing in your wildest dreams. Your inspired inner voice is as real as bunions or a bouillon soup. It’s not putting your head in the sand to believe in a higher intelligence than mass consciousness. It’s putting your head in the game. Love is the strongest power on the planet.”
So I’m brainstorming specific requests here, but if none of them fit you, no worries.
Do you know any social media evangelists/PR/marketing people who want to use their talents to set the world on fire?
Do you know media people in Phoenix, Denver, Boulder, Seattle, Portland, Vancouver, BC, San Diego, San Francisco, Chicago, Overland Park, Boston, Mass?These are some of the stops on my upcoming tour. Of course, if you know Oprah or Ellen or anyone in national media, then stop reading this email and call us!
Would you like to make a financial contribution to help sponsor a leg of the initial book tour? Or help create a marketing budget? Or lodging in a city? (Or a 16 oz. Jamba Juice?)
Do you write for (or know someone who writes for) any magazines, major blogs, etc?
Can you bring me in to speak at an organization?
Would you be willing to share an announcement about Inspired & Unstoppable (and some fun special offers) with your email list? groups? tribe? radio or t.v. shows? Let us know; we will get you wording.
Can you “Like” my Facebook Fan page (Tama Kieves) and share it with your loved ones and friends? Forget what you think about facebook. Think daily free coaching, positive tips, honest realizations, and love. We are already an amazing community of artists, visionaries, entrepreneurs, and meaning-seekers, over five thousand strong, sharing our lives. Grow our tribe.
Or maybe you have some great creative ideas for having this message make the difference it can make in this world?
I’ve set up a special email for you.
I would love to hear from you!
While I may not be able to respond to everyone personally, though I’ll try, I am going to thank you in advance for your support and love. I’ve already felt supported by each and every one of you. You signed up to be on my list and receive my newsletter. You are already part of the Inspired Revolution. You are shifting the way you think and choose in this world. I am so grateful for your companionship and dedication.
I leave you with this thought from Inspired & Unstoppable, urging you to follow the power of your love: “We are not ridiculous or fragile for believing in love, strength, and astronomical possibilities…It’s not crazy to dedicate ourselves to a life that feels true, empowering, and exciting. It’s just plain crazy not to.”
With all my love. Inspired and Unstoppably Yours,
P.S. Yes, just in case you’re wondering, it is scary to send out a letter like this. But I don’t want to let my own inhibitions get in the way, of something that could have happened, because I asked
