Editorial Reviews

Review

“If you want to live the life you’ve dreamed of, read “Living the Life of Your Dreams”. Marilyn had to go through many tough challenges to achieve her dream life—she can help you attain yours.”
~ Jack Canfield, NY Times best selling author of “Chicken Soup for the Soul” and “The Success Principles”.

“At last. The book you’ve been waiting for. Can you make a living—and a difference in this world—and still have a life? In this slim and powerful volume, Marilyn Tam, former President of Reebok and CEO of Aveda, tells how she traded burnout for a life of Dynamic Balance. By following the simple and brilliant guidelines she suggests, you too can make the shift to living the life of your dreams.”
~ Joan Borysenko, Ph.D., NY Times Best selling Author of “Inner Peace for Busy People” and “Fried: Why You Burn Out and How to Revive”, co-founder and former director of the Mind/Body Clinical Center, Harvard Medical School.

“So many of us feel burned out from trying to do it all. To be able to live a successful, balanced, healthy and fulfilling life, without having to spend countless hours stressing and over-working to achieve it, would be amazing. Marilyn Tam is living proof that it’s possible! In her book “Living the Life of Your Dreams” Marilyn, speaking from her heart and her vast experience, gives step-by-step directions and easy to understand examples to help us all live more balanced and fulfilling lives. Personally, Marilyn’s words of wisdom showed up at the exact right time for me. I finally know what to do and now know that it is possible to have that life.”
~ Pamala Oslie, Author of Life Colors, Love Colors, and Make Your Dreams Come True, and Founder of LoveColors.com.

“In this useful and charming book, Marilyn Tam shares her secret formula for creating the life of your dreams. As a former VP of Nike, President of Reebok and CEO of Aveda, Marilyn takes you through the practical steps to achieving a great life so you finally can just “Do it!”
~ Arielle Ford best selling author of “The Soulmate Secret” and relationship expert.

Is your life getting hectic? Is work a grind? Is driving the kids to activities is driving you to distraction? Is your social calendar getting too crowded?

Take charge and change your life. Marilyn Tam has written a book just for you. This volume is small enough that you can read it in one sitting. I suggest a four day reading routine that will help get your life in order.

Day 1 - Read the book in one sitting. Mull it over the rest of the day
Day 2 - Reread the book, this time taking notes. Refer to the notes during the rest of the day.
Day 3 - Reread the book, this time making a personal action plan for changing your life.
Day 4 - Implement your plan.

Next 100 years (or so) - Feel good about your life.

Format: Paperback
Marilyn Tam's book puts into clear perspective the tradeoffs of modern life and the toll they can take on your spirit. If you have already gotten to the point where you realize that climbing the ladder and acquiring possessions doesn't do it for you any more, where do you go from there? Serving humanity and following your bliss sounds great, but is it practical when you have a mortgage to pay and kids to educate? How do you find the way to sustain body and soul?
Well you start by tuning into your own needs. Even a super-achiever like Tam found that she was putting herself last in line and draining herself in the process.

She offers a great quote from Oliver Wendell Holmes: "Many people die with their music still in them. Why is this so? Too often it is because they are always getting ready to live. Before they know it, time runs out." This is a very sobering wake-up call, whatever age you are. Only when we stop of neglecting our own needs and restore balance to our lives, says Tam, can we have the energy to make "the positive difference that is my destiny."

With easy, step-by-step instructions, she helps you reconnect with your dreams and plot your course to a satisfying and meaningful life. Whatever your stage in life, even if you have been up many blind alleys, you will still find valuable advice on how to make useful course corrections. "Living the Life of Your Dreams" can be read in one sitting, and it is well worth your while.

Format: Paperback
This great book, Living the Life of Your Dreams, is little but certainly mighty! Most people are either in fear or overwhelmed in life and don't find the time or energy to just sit and figure out, "What is my dream?"This book helped me to stop and take a deep breath and evaluate my life, wishes and dreams!
As a photographer, I am always drawn in by the cover of a book. I think the cover speaks of Marilyn Tam's journey of finding the flow in her life! Her story is inspiring, going from an unwanted young girl in Hong Kong to becoming a very successful business woman in America, a global humanitarian and international speaker.
When you want advice on dreams, you go to someone who has successfully lives their own. This book is filled with great teaching and inspiration!
