Project You Life Journey addresses 7 elements - personal life, professional life, family life, health and fitness life, mental and emotional life, spiritual life, and interconnected life. To quote from the book, `It has been postulated that our reason for being is to give meaning to life. In a Project You Life sense, that meaning is to actualize more of our individual potential, then combine such higher realities into a collaborative force for humanity and the human experience, spiritual understanding and the collective spirit of the universe.' A purposeful, self determined, meaningful life can be lived. It takes continuous self-examination, introspection, a chosen path, determination, self-motivation, and a willingness to accept responsibility for the outcomes resulting from your actions, thoughts and emotions.' `To Live A Determined Life is to focus on an inner life devoted and driven on a journey of self development not only for personal and selfish reasons, but to advance the progress of both humanity and the infinite universe. Hidden and concealed within each of us is the nucleus of a greater and advanced self, one that gets realized and formed through the living of A Determined Life. The vital ingredients of A Determined Life are: self respect knowing yourself and defining you who are satisfaction as determined by you living up to personal values striving for authentic happiness being involved in something bigger than yourself People on A Determined Life Journey are fully dedicated to a process of actualizing their full human potential as a means to fulfilling their spiritual needs and enabling their souls to maximize their human experience.'
The book is divided into sections or chapters that explore the various stages of Project You: A Determined Life, The Project You Life Journey, Planning Your Project You Life Journey, Keys to Your Project You Life Journey, Self Definition, Living Up to Personal Values, Respect, Generosity and a Purpose Bigger Than Self, Striving for Authentic Satisfaction and Happiness, Your Personal Life, Your Professional Life, Your Family Life, Your Mental and Emotional Life, Your Health and Fitness Life, Your Spiritual Life, Your Interconnected Life, and Living A Determined Life.
Yes, this is a self help book among many other self help books available, but it is the sincerity and commitment to guide us that makes these encouraging directions more attainable. `Life is a mystery to be experienced', and reading and digesting and incorporating the concepts of this self-realization book makes that mystery achievable.

I could break those down for you but that would ruin the self-discovery aspects of the book. If you want to live a more centered life buy the book and look inside for your answers for your life.
The editors did a wonderful job creating a motivational book that is also an entertaining read. There are many anecdotes that no doubt will give readers a laugh. The text is also down to Earth and relatable to every human being, as we all seek happiness and fulfillment in our lives. The eloquence of the words had me reflecting on my own life, and how can I improve the various aspects outlined in the book. Project You isn't simply a book or fad, it's a way of life, improving upon what you already have. Whether someone feels satisfied in their life or not Project You is a life changer.
The chapter that spoke the most to me was Chapter Twelve Your Family Life- Making Committed Intimate Relationships Work. I have spent time in an unhealthy relationship, and understand on a personal level how a negative one can counteract everything else going on in your life. When our lives are unbalanced, it forces most aspects to be out of proportion thus staggering our life journeys. I chose to reflect and learn from the decisions I made, now in a healthy relationship. Project You cemented in writing what I had known in my mind. It was rewarding to me to see thoughts similar to mine in print, meaning others have traveled this path as well.
Project You is a must read!
The book covers various aspects of a deliberate and conscious life path:
personal, professional, family, health/fitness, mental/emotional, spiritual, and our interconnected life. I found the chapters on the spiritual life and committed, intimate relationships (and the various aspects of those
relationships) particularly helpful. Those chapters---and their pragmatic guidance---really resonated with me.
This guidebook is filled with inspirational quotes from international writers and philosophers---you can read it straight through as a road map, or you can pick up bits here and there for inspiration and refocusing. I found it inspirational, but at the same time practical, and look forward to sharing it with friends and family.
