You'd think that those two ideas are simple, but if you don't know them -- and I think many people don't -- absorbing them can transform your life. Wishcraft should be the core of a mandatory high-school course, although they'd probably screw it up. I feel very lucky to be doing what I am doing in my life, so Ms. Sher, you have achieved your goal with me, as I am sure you have with countless others. Thank you.
She emphasizes the importance of mindset and goals. She also demonstrates how helpful surrounding yourself with the right people can be and provides different scenarios that led to improvement in peoples' lives.
I personally prefer her later book, but both books share some fundamental concepts that are critical to achieving success, especially in today's climate that constantly attacks success and emphasizes victimhood of all sorts.
This book is very relateable and is an interesting examination of common occurrences. How much you get out of it will depend on how much you time you devote- there are several exercises to complete but also various case study type examples that are insightful. Highly recommend both books!
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 :)
This book is amazing! Barbara gives great, though-provoking assignments and exercises that really get you thinking about where you are in life. She speaks in very realistic terms and gives you the information that you really need to make significant changes in your life.
If you are in a rut, on the verge of a change, recently gone through a change, want to do something different, or just want to know if there is more to life than what you're currently doing, THIS BOOK IS FOR YOU!
You won't be disappointed!
