Less than a month after launching, the book rose to #1 in the Paid Amazon Bestseller categories of Women’s Spirituality, and #2 in the category of Personal Transformation & Spirituality, following Ekharte Tolle. Part of the series’ instant appeal is that “…these ‘silver linings’ stories are experienced by everyone, you can see them everyday in news stories; not just in the weather reports” according to the publisher, Debbie Horovitch who publishes books and creates authority positioning for entrepreneurs around the world, from her home base of Toronto.
Created by Horovitch to help construct an immediate emotional connection with business prospects and career opportunities, The Silver Linings Storybook shares personal stories of triumph over struggle by professionals and business owners, who all share a desire to live with more impact and significance. The Silver Linings Storybook Volume 1 includes the stories of 18 coauthors, each who shares a personal silver linings story, with the intention of inspiring their readers to be more hopeful, generous, and compassionate in their own lives.
“In the lives other people live sometimes you catch a glimpse of your own life and in the reflection you are able to see a different perspective ……. articulately expressed, inspiring, encouraging and heartening stories of victory over obstacles life throws in.” Amazon Verified Purchase Review, Rahul Badhwar
Organically, most of the coauthors of Volume 1 are students and alumni of The Institute for Integrative Nutrition, so their stories naturally focus on how they found their own sources of power to overcome physical and mental health issues, and had relatable life experiences that taught them to develop greater self awareness and responsibility.
“I am so impressed by every one of our coauthors – most are not professional writers, and some speak English as a second language – that they were able to be so authentic and sincere in sharing their most valuable life lessons… Especially when these stories of success and strength can be traced back to a moment that most people would rather forget, but they’ve found a way to identify the silver lining in their own unique experience. Then writing about it, warts and all, and sharing it publicly, can be a breakthrough experience for them in terms of knowing themselves and their true ability to serve clients with authentic quality and value.”
Horovitch shares that her own silver linings story was realized after she experienced a two-year depression following the sudden death of a close family member in fall 2013; even though her grief kept her from accomplishing in her business, it was during those quiet and isolated months that she reconsidered and evolved her intentions, as she came to realize more of her talents and potential. With those realizations, she made the first volume of Silver Linings Storybook available to storytellers at the beginning of 2016, filling up the landmark first volume for available coauthor spots in less than 2 weeks.
