What could make this easier?

"He wanted control. Control and confidence. So he could do what needed to be done. He wanted out of the death-spiral that had gripped his organization. He wanted freedom. Options. A new perspective."

In this innovative work of storytelling, bestselling author Chris Westfall provides insight and thought-provoking strategies for overcoming the most difficult of circumstances.

You know the drill: the business of life can be tough. Deadlines. Relationships. Expectations. Conflict. Challenges are everywhere. But there’s a way to show up where you find new choices—even when life isn’t easy.

When it looks like life, career, communication, and everything else is breaking down, it’s time to break free. It’s time to access a kind of personal freedom that allows you to make different choices. To see things in a different way. To enter into an understanding of what would make your situation easier.

Written in a narrative style that’s reminiscent of The Go-Giver, The Goal, or The Five Dysfunctions of a Team, Easier is a conversation: a conversation between a client and a coach, and a conversation where new ideas and new possibilities emerge from the most unlikely places. Inside this book, you’ll discover how to move from “How do I get through this?” to “What can I get from this?” The answer is in your hands. Learn how to overcome distractions, deal with difficult people, and find a way to be easier on yourself, no matter what it is that you are up against.

For leaders, coaches, entrepreneurs, and athletes, find out how to access peak performance. Discover how you can serve yourself, and your clients, more fully, more completely, and more powerfully. And wouldn’t that make everything easier?

📈The business of life can be tough, deadlines, relationships, expectations, conflict, and challenges are everywhere but there is always a way to show up where you find new choices, & new perspectives.

📌This book is a conversation between a client and a coach, where the client struggling in his job, he doesn’t know whether to continue pursuing it for the sake of paying bills, leave it, or find a middle ground that will help him love his job although this middle ground can’t be achieved without a new perspective which this book is all about.

He wanted more control over his work life, more confidence in himself, he wanted answers, new options, and freedom.

𝐊𝐞𝐲 𝐟𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐮𝐫𝐞:

The book is written in a narrative style, where the client & the coach is having a fictional conversation. During the course of this insightful conversation, new ideas emerge, along with new perspectives.


🔺An identity just like your mind is never fixed it is continuously evolving through new discoveries, better beliefs, and accessing new ideas.

🔺Live life like a lazy Sunday afternoon, be actively lazy towards things or activities that drain your energy or anything that doesn’t make you really happy.

🔺Success is always available. When we eliminate two words, success gets closer(those two words are: by now)

🔺Where you are is not who you are. Don't overidentify with your circumstances.

𝐅𝐢𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐎𝐩𝐢𝐧𝐢𝐨𝐧:

☝️Recommended to all the leaders, coaches, entrepreneurs & working professionals who are looking for making your job easier with some simple strategies.

This book is a new twist on many principles that are familiar yet often forgotten! The great message it uncovers is that we are often both the greatest obstacle and golden key to our own success! We are more creative and powerful than we know. Having the courage to confront our fears can add new perspective to everything we approach in life. If we rest in the ideas that we are not our thoughts, circumstances, or feelings, we can experience them without judgment and trust ourselves to find solutions.

This awesome book follows the conversation between Client and Coach. A very similar style to the wildly popular Go-Giver! Written by one of the most sought-after coach’s and speakers - Chris Westfall.

I like that the author used a story to help reinforce his points. I struggled with takeaways in this book though, title says 60 ways to make life easier, but didn’t feel like I walked away with that many? Definitely a few though. “Work at my own pace, don’t compete with others, serve others and you’ll win” and more. No regret that I read it.
