You will not find a better one.
If you want to figure out, and then become, everything you ever wanted to be, and give all your gifts to the world, this book tells you how.
I have still not DONE everything I want to do, but I have become who I want to be.
That took a lot of work because I have many dimensions that needed to come forward in a whole new way.
Barbara's book has guided me through this process (it is in tatters, but I am not :) I am one happy and grateful woman.
This book, though gentle, is not kidding around.
Don't buy it unless you desire to get so strong that you will actually believe in, and dare to bring into reality, your most precious dreams.
That is what it did/does for me.
I have achieved many of them and the rest will be coming soon :)
certain time in my young childhood that I had suppressed. This book brought me back to a point where
my life took a major turn between the ages of 8-12. The point I'm referring to is when my parents said those famous
words to me that changed my life's direction permanently,"Now honey, you really don't want to be that when you grow up, you won't make any money. You won't be able to keep food on the table and buy a home. You need to learn a trade, a special skill!".
Barbara Sher, the author of this book takes you places that shows you what your true life passion is and how you missed it growing up because of certain verbal or physical circumstances. Her written exercises, her mini assignments (2 minutes the most) and questionaires help me discover that my true passion was being expressed every day of my young childhood life, from the age 8 - 12, when it was being acted out at home. But unfortunately because of my parents and their era of thinking, I was deterred from developing further that God given talent I was expressing between 8 -12 years old and was told to learn a trade or skill that would keep me financially secured in life.
By page 90, I had discovered what my passion was from the being on this earth for 39 years. She shows me how I dipped and dabbed in
my true passion withiin my 39 years of life, while working my,"Trade" (a computer database developer), but never knew it was my passion and never paid any attention in developing it further. I just called it my,"My Hobby."
By page 91, Barbara Sher helped me to realize that your financial success comes from doing and working your passion. She helped
me discover that my passion is my MBA naturally born expertise. Something that other people pay schools to learn and get degrees in.
This book helped me discover that your passion is your God given gift that you were born with. No other person on this earth has this natural born expertise.
By page 146, I went and obtained my state license and business tax id for my new business. I had my 1 year plan draft written out, which included where the funds was coming from to financially get my business up and running, and the date of my grand opening!
This book changed my life and I recommend it to every woman who has lost her way, during being a wife, an ex-wife, a mother, a daughter, an employee or who has been something for every other person, except for themselves.
My successful business that this book helped me to discover can be found under my Amazon profile, a link to it.
Life is wonderful!!!!
