Inspired by Blossom and Books

 Happy Easter to all my readers and customers!

Or if you don’t celebrate Easter, I wish you all the best for the season.

Where I live it’s spring now and all my fruit trees are in blossom, which is lovely to see and has me looking forward to a future harvest of delicious cherries, pears, apples, peaches and plums. The photo is a closeup I took of some blossom on one of my pear trees. I love the red anthers.

I’m also busy cultivating and sowing and planting, and imagining how wonderful my garden will look in a few months time, and what good things I’ll have to eat. So for me it’s a very inspiring and optimistic time of year.

Books can also be a great source of inspiration, and one of the authors who inspires me the most is Barbara Sher. That’s why I was very happy and honoured to be the publisher of her latest book. If you want something to inspire you over the coming long weekend, or a gift to buy for someone special, that little book of her best-loved tips might be just what you’re looking for.

The best Advice I Ever Gave is now available in three different formats, so it’s easy to read it wherever you are, in whatever way you prefer reading.

You can still buy it as a downloadable PDF directly from this website. Many people like that format best for reading on computers or laptops, and it’s suitable for other devices as well.

The Kindle edition from Amazon is also very popular. But now, if you like to feel a solid book in your hands with real pages to turn, you can get it as a paperback, also from Amazon.

The content of the three editions is almost identical, although I had to adapt the layout slightly to suit each one. But the cover of the paperback looks little bit different from the others. Here are the pictures of the front and back as they appear on the Amazon website.

When you’ve read the book, come back and tell me in the comments which part inspired you the most.

Good advice for the new year (and a cheerful new colour)

Instead of Posing

Barbara Sher’s new book is full of excellent tips, but I think that quote is especially good for the start of 2017, because it’s a year in which we are facing a lot of problems and uncertainties.

It’s a time to stop worrying about what people think of you. Stop wasting effort trying to improve yourself. Instead start taking action to improve your life and your community and the world that we all share.

I also decided to mark the new year by giving the cover of the book a bright new colour. A bit of cheerfulness is welcome at this this time of year for all of us living in cold and miserable winter zones of the northern hemisphere. We’re having an unusually cold spell now in central Europe. Brrrrrrr!! I’m envying my friends in the southern hemisphere, but of course you’ll get your turn at winter later.

New E-book by Barbara Sher

I’m delighted to announce that the first project of Beyond Mountains will be the publication of a new E-book by Barbara Sher, the New-York Times best-selling author and “godmother of life coaching.” I’ll have more news about the launching soon.

Meanwhile you can watch her very popular talk at TEDxPrague 2015, which she did about two months after her 80th birthday. The video has now passed 50,000 views. It’s called “Isolation is the dream-killer, not your attitude”
