From the Publisher

Barbara Sher has helped thousands of people overcome self-doubt and fear and find meaning in their lives with her previous bestsellers. In Live the Life You Love, she puts those ideas to work. Combining fast-acting strategies and innovative exercises with motivational techniques, she has created a revolutionary step-by-step program that will reveal:

What your favorite childhood pastimes reveal about what it takes to become a happy adult
How to use your natural curiosity, talents, and resources to turn your life around
Why one-size careers do not fit all
Foolproof techniques for leaping over the hurdles between you and your dream

With her trademark wit, wisdom, and insight, Barbara Sher has created a manual to live by--a transformational guidebook for self-understanding, and ultimately, lifelong happiness.

Format: Paperback
At a difficult point in my career, I turned to this book to help me move to something new. I followed the steps described and it really worked. I had a dream of teaching environmental ethics at university, and now I am! A great thing about this book is that it is really written for sceptics like me who can't stand self-help books. Barbera Sher is particularly suspicious of resolutions and positive affirmations. She states quite clearly that you don't have to improve your character in order to get a good life - good news indeed! Another great thing about this book is that, just as she promises, all the exercises suggested are actually fun. This book moved me from a place of despondancy to a widening sense of wonder and excitement in life. Could you ask for more than that?

This is one of the best books I have read for improving and understanding your life.
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.

I am a sucker for self help books. I usually feel great after reading one and then nothing. This book however is an exception. A truly insightful book that can change your life! We often read that if we think a certain way, and do things a certain way we can make what we want happen. Then of course we wonder what is wrong when things don't workout. The author explains why positive thinking, affirmations, and willing and wishing aren't always successful.
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!

If you buy only one book this year buy this one. This book makes you dream again like you used to when you were a child. Remeber when you were five and could do and be anything? "Live the Life you Love" recaptures those dreams and shows you step by step how to get them. Barbara's stategies are practical, fun, wonderfully revealing and most of all, they work. I found myself smiling and nodding with agreement throughout this book. "Live the Live you Love" helped me go from being a straving artist with a few drawings on the wall to a successful international toy designer. My latest toy line is being featured at the Hong Kong International Trade Show, the biggest toy show in the world in January. After reading this book you will believe that dreams really do come true, including yours. Brian S., Albuquerque, New Mexico

This is a really good book. It's very straight forward with none of the usual self-help fluffy stuff to get in the way. It helps you learn what motivates you and how to get the support you need from yourself. Then it gets you thinking about what you *really* want and how to get it. This and The Joy of Simple Living by Jeff Davidson are the only two "self-help" books most people will ever need. (If you are female add Real Gorgeous by Kaz Cooke to that list.)

Just started reading, it becomes one of my fav books all time. It will truely set you free. Live the life you love is not just a carrer, it's exactly why we are here in this world. It's our authentic and spiritual life. She is one of the rare authors that knows exactly how you feel and knows exactly the feelings of axiety, loneliness, hopelessness. Her lessons will lead you to home. I read the first and second lesson so far, but I can feel something is changing inside of me. I feel that I am returning home. When you know what your true purpose is, you ARE living the life you love. It's so simple yet we were all taught to live what we are good at and competing others. She said, 'when you love doing something, you have a gift for it...everytime...that's what you are supposed to do.' I will never undervalue my needs anymore. Great book for this summer, so excited! =0)
