Top Customer Reviews
The premise of the book is that you can't force yourself to be "successful" or happy. The success gurus generally tell you to discipline yourself, to use the power of choice, to take more action. As Barbara Sher points out, these philosophies have mixed results because people can rarely discipline themselves for very long to do things that they don't feel like doing.
Maybe you know that you need to contact certain people to get started on the path towards something you love, but somehow you never get around to it? We need to understand that this doesn't happen just because we are weak and undisciplined -- there's a REASON for our behavior. This book awakened me to the concept of resistance. There are many different possible reasons that we experience resistance to doing things that we know we need to do. But if we try to just force ourselves to do things, then inevitably it will become too uncomfortable and we will quit, or "forget" about it.
In addition to resistance the book describes how to awaken yourself to things that you might love to do, and gives numerous techniques for helping you on the path to doing them. I will refer to this book again and again as I pursue my goals and dreams.
Overall this book is much better organized and written than her book "I could do anything, if only I knew what it was". That book does have some other useful material, but I would only recommend reading it after "Live the Life You Love..." if you are still hungry for more of her insight.
She describes how everyone is motivated differently and by using her techniques you will be able to determine what motivates you. She will help you learn how to take steps to make your desires come true even when you feel like you can't possibly succeed. The author describes techniques for a strong imaginary support system that will help you achieve your goals.
This book is very different than the usual "you can do it" book. If you follow the simple steps with this book "you will do it"! A wonderful book! You can start implementing the steps right away and be on your way to the life you love! As I read her book I put her suggestions to work. I can not believe how much easier it is to accomplish my goals!
