Review

"Cheryl once again offers up her unique perspective on helping people to step out of their very own darkness of fear and into the light of love. If you follow Cheryl's Simple Steps for Real Life, you can begin walking toward the life of your dreams!"
--Michael Merritt, Author

Having the privilege of reading Simple Steps for Real Life was the answer to my prayers. This book has shown me how I can get out of the rut I'm in and how to live a more fulfilling life. It gave me the "gentle nudge" I so desperately needed to look at life in a new perspective. 
--Stacie Bailey

From the beginning I felt as if I was reading about my life.  Simple Steps for Real Life is a fantastic book that people should take the time to read, and if they are honest with themselves, they will see what aspects in their life they need to work on to have a happier, stress free life style.
--D. Clemens

Whatever life may be presenting you with at the moment, by reading Simple Steps for Real Life you too can realize that starting over is liberating. We do all have our own answers within and we can create the life of our dreams by starting with a first step-a simple step! 
--Helen B H

Simple Steps for Real Life couldn't describe this book any better. The simple steps in this book are a catalyst for change and should be used as a new how to manual for real change in your life today. Th e choice is yours!
--Arty Bujan--Life Coach and Master NLP Practitioner

If you've ever felt stuck on life's journey this book is for you. Cheryl shows you how life's dissapointments and heartbreaks can be, not only fuel for yor journey, but actually blessings in the making. By the time you' ve finished you will have the insights needed to turn any situation around and go forward with a healthy and happier outlook on life. This book is not too short, or too long, and contains a wealth of knowledge learned from many experiences in the life of the author. You will feel as though she's talking directly to your heart. I highly recommend this book. You will be glad you got it.

Great author, great book, great message. I also have been following Cheryl on FB, and many days the messages there have prodded me into action, elevated my mood, inspired me, allowed lessons I was striving to "get" become crystal clear. Her style and message really resonate with me. Simple Steps Real Change is just that, and those steps have enhanced my daily life. I highly recommend Cheryl's book to any and every one for a daily read.

Changing is a Choice and Cheryl Maloney took the first steps toward change, putting pencil to paper and developed a well written book that has the power to change lives.
Cheryl was like many Americas, middle aged, out of work, out of shape, and struggling to find herself in this slumped economy and crushing world.She quickly found she wasn't alone in her place in life and created her own 5 simple steps in which to makes simple changes that will greatly affect your real life.

It truly is amazing how easily it becomes as we get older to put ourselves on the back burner as life passes us by. If you are feeling like so many others who are stuck in that rut, I suggest picking up Cheryl L. Maloney's book "Simple Steps for Real Life" and taking back your life!

Received from Goodreads to review.

Simple Steps for Real Life is a book written from deep compassion for others who are going through life difficulties as well as others who want that mind vitamin of positivity each day. I know my day would never be complete if I didn't visit, blog or share a positive thought on the FaceBook page SimpleStepsRealChange. Over two years ago Cheryl taught me to find the positivity in difficult times when I was diagnosed with Lupus and five other auto-immune disorders. Her book will also guide you into finding your authenic true potential.

Namaste,
Cindy

I've heard it said that the only difference between a rut and a grave is the depth of the hole.

Well, here is a book that will lift you from your rut.

Simple Steps for Real Life embodies the true axiom that every moment is a new beginning. Although that axiom can sound trite and timeworn, there is almost nothing more true. Every moment is a new opportunity to start anew and do things in ways which align us with our desires and dreams. Instead of doing what we've always done.

If you've been stuck or if you've been given the gift of needed to "start over" (i.e. job loss, divorce, loss of a loved one, etc.), this book will be a kind and loving whack on the side of your head. Not a hurtful whack, but one which will allow you to shift your focus and see this day, this moment, for the true gift it is - and for the limitless possibilities it holds for you.

Cheryl Maloney shows us, in a straightforward and simple manner, that we need not remain imprisoned by our old habits, our old way of doing things. As an author who writes about creating new beliefs to improve your material reality, this book resonated deeply with me. And I also found it both inspirational and instructional.

Reading this book is a lot like being coached by an expert at personal transformation. I've become a big fan of Cheryl, her books, and her guidance. Don't forgo yourself this opportunity and I believe you, too, will join me in praising this wonderful book. Get a copy today.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! ONE THING ABOUT BOOKS LIKE THIS, IS I LOVE THE MIRROR REFLECTION I GET FROM IT, WHEN I READ THEM. I LOVE SELF HELP BOOKS ANYWAY, SO THIS ONE WAS EASY FOR ME TO TRANSITION INTO MY UNDERSTANDS. I READ THE BOOK, AND ALSO APPLIED THE STEPS AND I FOUND IT BREATH TAKINGLY WONDERFUL! I LOVED THAT I COULD REFER BACK TO IT, AND GET CHERYL'S FEED BACK, AT ANY TIME FROM HER BOOK. THIS IS THE BEST PART ABOUT BUYING THE BOOK TO BE ABLE TO LEARN AND GROW WHILE BLOSSOMING WITH CHANGE. I THINK IF MORE PEOPLE APPLIED SIMPLE STEPS OF REAL CHANGE TO THEIR LIFE STYLE DAILY, WE ALL COULD ALL BE MORE OPEN TO SEEING THE GOOD IN OTHERS. I FIND THAT, TOO, OFTEN THE WAY WE SEE OTHERS IS A DIRECT REFLECTION OF WHO WE REALLY ARE. MAYBE HOW WE SEE OTHERS IS JUST HOW WE SEE OURSELVES. CHERYL'S BOOK DOES THAT FOR ME, I SEE MY OWN REFLECTION AND HAVE THE OPTION TO CHANGE ME BEFORE I TRY TO CHANCE OTHERS. I LIKE THAT I CAN JUDGE MYSELF, BEFORE SOMEONE ELSE CAN, MAINLY BECAUSE OF POOR MOTIVES THAT GOES ALONG WITH IT. I AM NOW AWARE OF MY SELF, AND ALL OF MY WORK TOWARD IMPROVEMENTS, THROUGH EACH OF THE STEPS. THE STEPS GAVE ME EACH DAILY PROBLEM, AND THEN CLEARLY GAVE SIMPLE STEPS, THAT I COULD APPLY TO THE PROBLEMS I CAN RELATE TO, WHILE A POSITIVE CHANGE TOOK PLACE. NOW I CAN HAVE A MORE ACCEPTABLE WAY TO BETTER LIVE MY LIFE. I ALSO TOOK LOTS OF NOTES, WHILE READING, AND I WROTE MARKINGS RIGHT IN MY COPY OF THE BOOK. I DID THIS SO I COULD FIND THE STEPS AGAIN, AS I NEEDED THEM FASTER, MAKING IT MY PERSONAL JOURNAL! WONDERFUL JOB CHERYL. I REALLY NEEDED WHAT YOU HAD TO GIVE, IN THIS BOOK. SIMPLE STEPS FOR SIMPLE CHANGE. BUY THIS BOOK! I GUARANTY YOU, YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED. POWERFUL BOOK!!!!!!!!!!
