These are the words people are saying about Me, the #ihelpedchangealife project, and Inspiration on Demand.
I seriously love reading your posts everyday!! I have been through some rough patches in the last 2 years and reading those posts just makes me think so much more positive about my everyday life! Honestly, it is changing my life.-Michaela Jo Kirby-Contributor

These are the words of encouragement that got me here and now I am working to publish my new book, Inspiration on Demand.
The 5"x7" hardcover book is packed full of motivating and empowering messages to help people improve daily lives, overcome personal trials and reach dreams. All funds will go toward the printing & shipping of Inspiration on Demand, and all rewards, to those who choose to join me on this journey.
Like many of us, I am an individual that struggles to stay positive. In order to keep a postive mindset throughout the day I began composing & posting positive affirmations for myself each morning on various social media platforms.Thousands of social media users began to comment (Ex. Reading those posts just makes me think so much more positive about my everyday life, honestly,... it is changing my life.), “Like”, and suggest that they would like to see a compilation of these positive quotes, posts, & affirmations for daily reference or to share with others who were struggling. Not only that, it was time for me to walk what I had been talking and "Reach for the sky, especially when farthest from it." Which is exactly what we are doing, together.
Since the concept of a book filled with these affirmations was suggested to me by others, I realized that the project was as much about their want to see the development of a book as it was for my need to reinforce positivity in my personal life. In order to fulfill all the wants and needs involved, I planned the #ihelpedchangealife project. #ihelpedchangealife would allow these social media users to become a part of the creation and final outcome of a book they chose to title Inspiration on Demand. Within the social media platform, friends/followers of mine would vote on the title, dimensions, cover style, and all other aspects of the creation.
All participants who choose to join in Kickstarting the printing of Inspiration on Demand will have a choice of free, signed print copies of the final book, signed & personalized posters, Certificates of Inspiration, an opportunity to be included within in the book as a contributor to the work, and/or a speaking engagement & dinner with me. The creation of Inspiration on Demand has not only changed the course of my life, but the lives of the contributors thus far, and hopefully will continue changing the lives of those who we can share Inspiration on Demand with in the future.
The #ihelpedchangealife project is not about me, but instead, about the process of creating Inspiration on Demand and, in turn, working together to deliver a positive message to the world at large.
I would like to personally thank each and every participant who pushed me to create a project that would allow me to learn to let go while developing something more amazing than I could have dreamed. The last piece of this puzzle is the actual publishing of Inspiration on Demand. I welcome you to join us in changing our lives, your life, and the lives of those around you as we work together to get Inspiration on Demand to print.
If you wish to view the full creation of Inspiration on Demand, up to this point, please follow my personal Facebook profile at www.facebook.com/joshuacoburn13 or in pictures on Instagram at #ihelpedchangealife.

See below for a few quotes from Inspiration on Demand.
The best odds are the odds that are against you. Those odds are motivation to overcome all odds.-Joshua Coburn
Make no excuses for who you are. Instead, be honest about your faults and be strong in your convictions. You have a reason to be here, prove it!-Joshua Coburn
Motivation starts with addressing your shortcomings and ends with overcoming them!-Joshua Coburn
Opportunities are created, not given. Carve out your place in life, even if it does not exist. If you don’t belong, make others feel is if they belong with you. We create our world, we choose our attitude, and we surround ourselves with the people we choose! If life is not to your liking, change it today! It is possible!-Joshua Coburn
Risks and challenges
The most I can offer is my word. I firmly believe that a promise or a handshake is as good as any contract that could legally bind us. As far as I am concerned, my word is more important than any contract as it puts my personal integrity on the line, which is something I am not willing to compromise.
We are in the final stages of Inspiration on Demand and risk is minimal. The publishing of the product is the final piece of our process and precisely why we are seeking funding here. I have published two self-funded books previously, using the same printer each time, in order to ensure a timely process and high quality product.
If there are unforseen issues printing Inspiration on Demand, rest assured that I will keep everyone informed, just as I have all social media contributors through the process thus far, and keep updates posted regularly until the issues are resolved. I also have a back up printer chosen in the case there are any major unforseen issues that could hinder further production.
