I really enjoyed reading this book. I loved the way the author created a contract with the reader and all the exercises that got me thinking about the belief systems I hold still about my life. Well worth a read to help you follow your dreams and to get you out of your comfort zone.

This book changed my life! I went through coaching and then trained to be a life coach myself! Nearly 7 years of coaching later, this book still inspires me.
