Sick of wondering what you can do to improve your life? Would it be a good idea if you knew what you were designed to be doing? Then you could change your life to match your purpose.
Maybe you are at a stage where you need to reassess what you should be doing with your life.
Maybe you are someone who is supporting someone who is in either of these situations and are looking for a resource you could use to provide you with the perspective you need in order to truly help them.
A life without a purpose sounds can be a nightmare but how do you wake up and start truly living your life. This book takes you through a process that the author developed based on an ancient Middle Eastern philosophy.
Susan starts by showing people that there is a place for them in the world and talks about the importance of self-acceptance. The book goes on to look at some reasons why people have strayed from their purpose and the consequences of this. The aim is to gather evidence that will help them on into a better future.
Only then are the readers guided through a process that will help them prove to themselves what their purpose is. After that, readers are taken through three processes i.e. releasing the past, retuning their hearts and reframing their ideas. These processes use the evidence gathered in the earlier chapters to help the reader move forwards into a new life.
The remainder of the book looks at some of the practicalities of moving into a new life such as planning and managing failure. All the way though the book is illustrated with examples taken from her own life and the lives that have intersected with her own.
The author knows what it is like to have descended into a nightmare. In her case if was a destructive marriage that prevented her going forwards into her purpose. It has taken time to recover from this situation. Hardly surprising when you realise just how long a detour she had made on the journey to fulfilling her purpose.
That detour has not been a waste of time as it has given her an unprecedented understanding of some of the more common challenges of life. These include things like self-acceptance and tolerating what should not be tolerated.
What makes this book so fascinating as it is not written by a celebrity standing on a hill urging people to come up and join them. It is not written by a celebrity from the realms of sports or business. It is written by someone who knows what it is like to pick herself up from the floor and start again.
