A MUST READ!!!!!!!! This book has allowed me to first think and become aware of my thoughts, actions, and reactions. It has allowed me to travel down a road that I was reluctant to travel due to the feeling that may or may not come with it. I can honestly say that because of this book and with the help of Dr. G my thoughts, actions, and awareness has been changed for the better. It has taught me to acknowledge my feeling and don't run, hide, and or drown them in my bad habits. This book has shown me that's it's ok to feel what ever I'm feeling at the present moment but the key is to not stay there. Acknowledge my feelings, expose the reason or reasons behind them, address,and deal with them, then move on. I am learning to live in the present and embrace the present. There is no need to worry about what was but focus on was is. It has help me in my personal life, my work life, and in my spiritual life. I would recommend this book to any and everyone who is stuck and unaware of where life is taking them as well as those who just need to heal from what ever they are dealing with. Life will always have its ups and downs but it's our choice whether we dwell in the downs or focus on the ups and make a conscious decision to how we are going to react to life's challenges. I will be rereading this book and it will be kept in my arsenal. From the bottom of my heart I want to thank you Dr. G for showing and helping me to first get back in the driver's seat of my life and showings me how I can create my amazing life. You are truly God sent.

Many self-help books are written in one of two ways, from the heart of the author who shares their life experience in genuine and meaningful ways, or from the mind of the expert who provides solid, proven steps and techniques for life-skill improvement.  In this newest of her books, Dr. Lawana Gladney does both.  After you read about her personal challenges, and the circumstances she has faced and overcome, you come to know the author as a very real person who fully understands the hurts, pains and frustrations in your life.   As you dig deeper into the book, it quickly becomes evident that it is also an instructional manual for successful change and emotional wellness.  The text is jam-packed with specific methods and techniques designed to help you clarify your core values, set goals and design action plans for successful change.    We all have areas in our life we want to improve upon, or changes we want to make to get us to that next rung in life.  It may be one thing or several related to work, family, personal and professional relationships, or simply that little demon (those limiting beliefs) that hold us back from the success and life joy we seek.  This new book by Dr. Gladney will provide you with both the tools and inspiration to meet your challenges head-on.

I received my book on the day that it was said it would arrive. Dr. Gladney was upfront with you need a notebook and pen.....I know for me this was key.....I tend not to write things down but I made a commitment, so I am. Amazing the things she make you think about and about YOURSELF. We spend our lives thinking about others thoughts not realizing our own thoughts have so much to do with where we are in our own life. So if you think you need a little help...this book will definitely give you a boost. Happy getting to know yourself and how you can change your course in life.
