Overview

Based on intensive work with over one million people worldwide, this personal development and leadership coaching book demonstrates that we all have everything it takes to live an extraordinary life - if we are willing to take charge of our lives and discover the true meaning of personal responsibility.

Like diets we don't follow, 'self-help' books have become cliché-ridden shopping lists for what doesn't work. They are as likely to generate a Doonesbury spoof as improvements in people's lives. Often the only thing they improve is the thickness of their authors' wallets.

Prescribing solutions is almost always ineffective and self-defeating. Until you are good and ready, you are not going to follow even the most well-meaning advice about personal growth.

But if you are truly ready for growth and change, and if your facilitator is gifted, it is possible. The key is insightful coaching and a lot of penetrating questions, heart-to-heart questions that reach deep inside and ask you to address issues you can no longer afford to avoid.

In this, Robert White's first book, he says, "I don't have the answers for your life, but I know for certain that you do. There are no rules in these pages, nothing conceptual or theoretical to be mastered or to memorize. It is simply an inquiry into what is possible for each of us in the areas of life we truly care about most: our relationships, career, personal identity, joy in living and connection to spirit."

Editorial Reviews

Paige Lovitt
"Living an Extraordinary Life" was written to help you find happiness and fulfillment within your life. It is written around a framework of three concepts that need to be worked on in order for us to achieve our goals. These concepts are: Awareness, Responsibility and Communication. White teaches you how to apply these concepts into your life so that you can find your true purpose and achieve your goals. Everything that he writes makes so much sense.
John Renesch
"Like a fine meal, this book contains all the ingredients for an incredible experience. It is the best book I've seen for the introspective person who really wants to grow personally and professionally. But the reader still needs to do the work and cook the "meal" in order to truly enjoy it. A wonderful recipe for a spectacular life! Kudos to Robert White for sharing it."
John StAugustine
“I’m telling you this right out of the gate folks. I read 300 to 400 books every year……this is, without a doubt, the best book I have ever opened up. Why is that? It’s not about the stories, it’s not about the examples, it’s the way it’s been presented. Simple truths, we need to go back to these common sense ideas that work so well that we’ve forgotten. That’s why I say watch this book; it is the sleeper of the decade."
