Nothing to fear if we can identify what would be scary circumstances ! This book perfectly help me out to understand my very own being when I really need to move forward of future, a very recommended book !

I loved this book and all that it talked about. It was insightful, gave examples, and had plenty of exercises to do. Cheryl takes you by the hand and leads you to a path to gain greater self-confidence. I wanted to be in a Life Makeover group where I could go through these exercises with others. Can't wait to go through it again and take my time doing the exercises.

Highly recommended. Although the book is geared towards women (chronic people-pleasing/doormat types need to heed Richardson's advice), there's value for nearly everyone who needs a personal boost or a reminder that it's okay to have your own goals and set boundaries with others. I especially benefited form the four values exercise. This book also helped me gain the courage to set a clear boundary with a particularly difficult associate.

So very helpful. Written as though she is your very own life coach.

I read this in my third year of college. Maybe I just read it at the perfect time, but I thought it was an excellent guide for taking control of your own life and decisions. Lots of interactive activities that make you explore your own position rather than just reading about someone else's.

I highly recommend this book if you are at the point in life where you want to move forward and stop living in the past. You must be ready for taking simple but effective changes in your life to find the happiness everyone desires. Also recommend Cheryl's other books to continue your journey.

Cheryl Richardson is one of my favorite authors. She is a life-coach and has been on Oprah and is associated with Louise Hays and has her own webpage. I find all her books and guidance very helpful and good suggestions for life.
Probably ground breaking for some. I found it interesting but not inspiring nor enlightening but I didn't find it trite or irrelevant. For more:

I enjoyed the book, but I've managed to figure out most of this through experience. Wish I had read this while I was in university!
treat this like a workbook and have a notebook or journal when you are reading this book. Good advice.

Directed more at a female audience, I nevertheless found lots of useful guidance in this audiobook.
