Charles Da-Silva is an American businessman who is adding the title of author to his resume having been able to turn his life around through self evaluation. A practice that has seen his life experience many successes in his businesses and personally and now he has written his first book titled The Unknown, which is the first of a 14 part series of The Self Evaluation: A Decision Series where he shares the secrets he discovered that helped move him from living an average life to one that has become rich in relationships and knowledge. He not only allowed me edit the soon to be released revised edition of the book, but was gracious enough to let me interview him for the blog today. Enjoy:
Question: WHEN DID YOU START WRITING?
Answer: I remember picking up a pen for the first time to write as far back as age 15. I discovered a love and a peace very authentic when I would write down my thoughts or observations about my life and the world and I haven't stopped writing since.
Question: DID YOU ALWAYS WANT TO WRITE A BOOK AND WHAT PROMPTED THE BIRTH OF THE SELF EVALUATION SERIES?
Answer: I always knew I would eventually write books about my findings on life but I just didn't know for sure when that time would be exactly. The Self Evaluation Series came about when I found myself at a crossroad in my life 13 years ago and I figured out quickly that it would be the key element to my moving forward from that difficult point and in my life generally. When that lamp of life was lifted, it was then I saw the road my life needed to be on from that point
Question: WHY HAVE YOU DECIDED TO EDIT AND RE-LAUNCH YOUR FIRST BOOK, THE UNKNOWN?
Answer: I needed to include a lot more specifics that were not included in the first draft so it could resonate with even more readers and hopefully open their minds in a way that they haven't experienced prior to now
Question: HOW HAS THE FIRST DRAFT OF THE BOOK BEEN RECEIVED BY READERS?
Answer: The feedback has been amazing; I've been told it has been life changing for people in terms of goals being met and allowing them reach and even exceed their own maximum potentials.
Question: WHAT SELF EVALUATION TECHNIQUES DO YOU RECOMMEND TO HELP PEOPLE WITH THEIR OWN PERSONAL GROWTH?
Answer: I say, Never Yield and Never Settle. In this life we deal with so much load and burden that sometimes we inadvertently create our own issues by not giving ourselves time to think things through clearly. Clarity can ignite the fire of knowledge and understanding in our daily lives and if you know yourself, you should exercise the grace necessary to hold on and never doubt your abilities to succeed. Never doubt the fact that the reason you want something better than what you are getting is how you should proceed with getting what you want out of life and getting where you would rather be. Be completely aware of what you do and what you say, then your growth will take magnificent shape and you will never again have to compromise with your life or condition so NEVER YIELD and NEVER SETTLE.
Question: WHAT CAN PEOPLE LOOK FORWARD TO IN THE REVISED EDITION OF THE BOOK?
Answer: People can expect to learn a more informative and directive conscious connection to self evaluation
Question: WHAT IS YOUR NEXT BOOK GOING TO BE ABOUT AND HOW SOON CAN PEOPLE EXPECT IT?
Answer: It is going to be called AWAKENING and you can expect it on the stands in the summer of 2019 God willing
Question? DO YOU DO ANY TYPE OF PRIVATE COUNSELLING & HOW CAN YOU BE REACHED?
Answer: Yes, I do counsel tons of people on a regular basis on different issues bothering them and to reach me, you can email me at email@example.com or send me a private message on any of my social media platforms: Instagram & Twitter handle is: @authorcharlesdasilva
Question: OTHER THAN YOUR BOOKS, HOW CAN PEOPLE GET ACCESS TO YOUR TEACHINGS?
Answer: My personal website: www.charlesdasilva.com or on my facebook page: Author Olabode Charles Da-Silva
Question: WHAT FINAL PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEAVE PEOPLE WITH?
Answer: Always remember that life will not provide you with any scripts or bring to your door what specific things you need to do to live successfully or prepare for the uncertainties that lay ahead so you must learn to create your own possibilities.
The book as earlier said was edited by yours truly under my editing company, T.A.E & P.R and is soon to go to re-print with a grand re-launch planned for later this year. It was an honour and a privilege to interview @authorcharlesdasilva and an even greater honour to be given the task of editing his first book that not only aims to re-introduce him to the literary world on a larger scale but also help people gain back control over their lives and destinies.
Author Charles invites and encourages everyone to #selfevaluate regularly as a way to monitor self growth and personal development. He is active on all his social media platforms and you are invited to read his articles on his website where you are welcome to leave your comments and thoughts on any of his previous or current posts.
