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.
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 :)
family, with a 2-year-old son, and another one on the way. Up until
then, I had worked at various jobs, mostly in accounting, which I
hated with a passion.
Laid off from my part-time accounting job with an insurance company
(They could "tell" I wasn't happy there.), I was looking for a new
direction. I'm not sure now how I became aware of "Wishcraft", but I
bought it and it made me think differently about life and jobs.
It had never occurred to me that you could get a job without having
all of the formal credentials required. I liked that way of thinking!
There were so many things I wanted to do!
So I went to the Virginia Unemployment office, and began reading job
descriptions of things that I'd like to do, whether I was qualified to
do them or not.
I saw a part-time teaching job, working with CETA students (in this
case, high-school dropouts with kids) to teach them Data Entry.
I had once *done* data entry, so I figured I could teach it! So I took the listing to the agent and asked them to call the place and see if they would take "experience" in lieu of a teaching degree. The guy looked at me funny, but made the call, and they said "Sure - send her over."
And that's where my teaching / training career began. It's wandered
all over the place over the last 30 years, and 14 years ago I started
my own technical training company, and went on to teach overseas and
at several "real" colleges.
I believe in my heart that if I had not read "Wishcraft" I would have
ended up typing for someone else for a living, and my kids would have
had far fewer opportunities in life.
Instead, my oldest came to work for me, as a trainer. As a technical trainer, he's been able to travel to Europe and Australia. Nowadays, he's a senior Oracle database administrator, but he still loves to teach, so he often tutors friends in a make-shift classroom in his basement.
My youngest is a web architect in San Francisco, as well as a
world-class athlete representing the USA in competitions in South
Africa and England.
So the path my life took changed, and resulted in my children's lives
changing -- and hopefully the future generations that will follow us
-- all because Barbara Sher took a risk and wrote a book, based on some
workshops that weren't making any money.
Is it any wonder that I am in awe of her?
Every 30 years or so, she comes into my life -- and changes everything.
