"When prospective clients come to me wanting to change, I warn them that it’s not for the faint of heart. For serious change to occur, you will need three key ingredients. If even one is missing, there will probably be no significant change, or you will be unhappy with the change that does occur."
–from Create the Life of Your Dreams
Too often we go through life settling for just “good enough.” It takes a courageous soul to dream outside the box and create the life of their dreams. Bob Kiser, a very successful motivational speaker and empowerment life-coach, has helped thousands of people do just that. His own journey began with being sexually abused as a child, given up for adoption at age 15, and then crippled with addiction issues as a young adult. Feeling lost and unsure of what he wanted or how to move forward in life, he embarked on the process detailed in this book.
Bob empowers readers to discover their authentic selves and to start living their best possible life. In this quick-paced book, he gives us exercises that have brought him and his clients the most success, exercises that especially address feeling stuck, unmotivated and wanting to give up. Creativity, confidence and unbelievable success are just some of the rewards readers will gain from this insightful book.
“...create change not because a thing is wrong, but because it no longer makes an accurate statement of who you are.”
