“Firstly, stop dreaming about it and start planning for it. Just say to yourself. ‘I’m going’. There will be so many unknowns and you really just have to make it up as you go along. Ask yourself, ‘What’s the worst that can happen?”
“I believe a lot of the world’s problems could be solved by people owning their stories and answering the call in their hearts. When people are living from their authenticity, they make better decisions, are more generous and tend to be a little less anxious. It opens the possibilities right up. If every single person decided to honor their heart-centered will, instead of their ego-centered will, I believe we could heal a lot of the troubles ailing the world. We live in a time where people don’t believe in miracles, we don’t believe in change, we don’t believe we can do better. I think individuals who are tapping into their creativity and honoring their highest self are the change agents of our entire world. Every single person on this planet is creative. It’s just a matter of owning it.”

“I want everyone to realize that it’s okay to own who you are. To simply be yourself and not care about what other people are going to say. We are humans who were created to feel, and live, and grow. Not expressing ourselves is such a missed opportunity.”
“Be true to yourself. Live honestly. Be a good person. Know your strengths and play those strengths up. Everyone is here for a reason, and we are given our gifts and talents for a reason–why waste them by never sharing them?”

Brian Eulenstein is a West Australian author, who released his debut novel Dark Road, Dark Souls in July 2013. I really enjoyed the thriller, which is self-published, and can be purchased as an eBook, Paperback or on Kindle. Perth readers can get a signed copy of the book direct from Brian if they would like, by contacting him through his Website.

“What I really want is to reach my readers. I don’t really care if I write a best seller but if one day a reader contacts me and says “Hey your book really spoke to me” then I’ll be satisfied that I’ve done a good job.”
