How's life? Need a little coaching? None of us have all the answers all of the time, especially when it comes to our own life. We all need a little objective guidance from time to time when we want to improve or change something about ourselves and our lives. It is not always easy to find someone who has the ability to help us change for the better and one thing is for sure, no-one is going to do it for us. This workbook is your tool, you very own pocket life coach to help you rediscover the healthiest, most productive, positive and creative you. This book is about how to bring your true desires, talents, powers and purpose out of your head and into your life and stop the cycle of creating problems, drama, difficulty and illness. It is about understanding what potential you have and how to develop it, recognizing and overcoming limitations, fears and recurring obstacles; freeing yourself up to be the best you can. We all have a better self inside. We all have a better life to live, and we all have this potential waiting to be unveiled.
Life can often seem like a scene from a western where the hero is dragged along behind the wild horse through mud and cacti, winding up battered and bruised in a strange place surrounded by a hostile crowd. Other times it feels like smooth sailing, sunny and calm, where the slightest whim is granted and the smell of roses is the order of the day. The skill is in turning low and negative expectations into high and positive ones, problems into solutions, illness into vitality and tragic drama into romantic comedy.
