Overview

Being happy doesn't have to be hard, says prominent personal coach Laura Berman Fortgang. We each possess an internal compass that expresses our individual wisdom and points to the things that would most fulfill us. Personal and professional satisfaction, Fortgang believes, comes from tapping into this wisdom.

In Living Your Best Life, she offers ten tried-and-true strategies that help us to access our own inner knowledge to achieve what she calls a "best life"-a life that awaits all of us, in which gains come more easily because we've learned to honor our true desires and work with our individual talents rather than exhausting our energy on a traditional model of achievement. Her techniques focus on asking ourselves what we really want instead of frenetically trying to "have it all." We learn to ask questions that move us forward, not backward, to discover our own unique "lucrative purpose," and to design a "magnet" life plan that draws to us the more rewarding existence we deserve.

Author Biography: Laura Berman Fortgang is the author of Take Yourself to the Top and a popular speaker. Her national media appearances include The Oprah Winfrey Show, and she has been profiled in such publications as The Wall Street Journal, USA Today, and Glamour.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
com, believes that an intuitive approach is the best way to get to one's "happy place" in work as in life. She advocates a "Reckoning, Doing, and Being" process, where "Reckoning" is learning cognitive tricks to decrease negative thoughts; "Doing" is coming up with and carrying out action plans; and "Being" is identifying and working with intuitive processes. Also like Whyte, Fortgang's approach is a variation on the "Do what you love and the money will follow" philosophy. Unlike Whyte, however, Fortgang doesn't weave a prose poem for readers to meander through; instead, she offers practical exercises and checklists, dos and don'ts, and, despite her sometimes New-Agey ideals, very concrete methods that readers can use to change their lives. She points out that people don't often know what will make them happy (a fact that a lot of self-help books ignore), and she gives suggestions on how to identify exactly what that certain something might be.
