I purchased this book as an informational companion to my role as a coaching client. As someone in the midst of many personal and professional decisions, I found the client success examples illustrating each idea to be energizing and inspiring. Fortgang's perspective is a breath of fresh air in a world that tells you to push for your goals. Fortgang supports allowing your innate wisdom to pull you toward your passion and purpose.
"Living Your Best Life" is not about making lists, or even making plans. It is about knowing what you really want in life, instead of what you think you can have. It is about being who you are so you can do what you are meant to do in order to live your best life.
A lot of books shame you about current life choices (you're dependent; lazy; immature; in denial; codependent; not actualized, etc.) and lecture you about how you must change in order to FULFILL your DESTINY*! "...You're right," you might say, sighing. "So if I should do something else instead, why don't I just DO it?"
Fortgang says you need reinforcement and continuity to bridge the change. Her strongest suite is helping you recognize how your life purpose is already being enacted, to understand how your essential nature already infuses your life, and build from there. For example: My nature is that of an observer, analyst, and expressor. analyst (duh). My purpose is not necessarily to write incredible novels like Chuck Palahniuk, but to analyze what I see, hear, or read and then to communicate that assessment effectively through my strongest means--which happens to be writing.
The cool thing about Fortgang is that she doesn't lecture you; she leads you to teach yourself and create the continuity you need to further work the change.
If you are a personal, business, executive, or corporate coach, you will benefit from this book because it takes all your classroom learning, and puts all the theory into practical real life coaching experiences. Specific examples of situations that clients are facing are detailed, along with the approach that worked to get them unstuck. You'll be able to appreciate how Laura constantly uses the right tools for each client situation. You'll find yourself saying, as I did, "ahhh, so that's what my teleclass instructor meant when she said ...".
