Overview


Dreams deferred are dreams that die — a process that can take the dreamer along with them. Gallagher believes it's never too late to revisit, and relive, one's deepest desires. Writing in her trademark warm and witty style, Gallagher argues that rather than spend endless time trying to find oneself, one should start creating oneself by returning to basic life wishes. It's Never Too Late to Be What You Might Have Been, based on the famous George Eliot quote, combines sage advice, step-by-step guidelines, and inspirational push. Individual chapters include "Attitude is Everything," "Mind Over Matter, Matters," "Remembering Your Forgotten Dreams and Realizing Them," and "It's Never Too Late to Have a New Career." Written for those who struggle with discovering their purpose in life — whether a nervous college graduate facing the future, a 40-something mom seeking renewal, or those who have been recently laid off — this book explains how to listen to and honor one's inner voice.

    I love this Book it is so good I painted a picture of It.

    When I read this book it makes me happy and I smile and my face goes from normal to bright. It was one of the best books that I have ever read. Now in my hall we got a profesonal to paint a picture of a dead tree and a new one growing out of it with the words IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO BE WHAT YOU MIGHT HAVE BEEN. BEST BOOK I HAVE EVER READ!!!!!!!
