Overview

Imagine. Believe. Achieve.

Many self-help books offer a lot of new age platitudes and sappy mantras:

Just love yourself.


See the glass as half full.


Believe it and it will come.


Really? That’s not how it works, and you know it. A lifetime’s worth of struggle is not overturned in a small moment of positive thinking. But if you have the right attitude—attitude and skills—you can and will accomplish anything and everything you want. This book gives you both, attitude and action. By its end you will have all the tools you need to change your life. No hype. No false promises.

You will learn to:
• Cultivate your passion and embrace your uniqueness to create a purpose-filled life . . .on your own terms.

• Transform your suffering into peace, wisdom, and strength.

• Work through fear, worry, shame, and negative self-talk to blast through obstacles and create self-confidence, self-esteem, and a healthy self-image.

• Take powerful, informed, deliberate actions to make your dreams a reality.

Forget surviving: it’s your time to thrive. You do have the ability and potential to achieve unlimited health, wealth, and happiness. Getting there won’t all be easy—nothing worthwhile ever is—but take this journey and your life will change dramatically. Your possibilities are unlimited, and your life is waiting for you to break free and claim it

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
From tough-love fitness guru and life coach Michaels (Winning by Losing) comes a new book about more than just losing weight. Viewers of NBC's The Biggest Loser know that Michaels likes to help people recognize the issues that are keeping from reaching their goals, and she brings the same approach to the page, managing to make clear, urgent demands of readers in her non-abrasive, approachable way. The immensely likable Michaels brings a distinctive edge to both the tone and content; she radiates success and is fulfilled by doing what she loves. From the first page, readers will feel her enthusiasm; a winning mix of humor, contestant case studies, personal experience, and motivation (she demands that readers wake up; "Screw surviving," she says, "It's time to THRIVE") never feels platitudinous. From an early focus on self-esteem and managing deep-seated hurt and fears, all reminiscent of The Secret, to clear, step-by-step strategies for organizing goals, Michaels organizes her book around a dynamic three-step process (imagine; believe; achieve) rooted in positive thinking, martial arts philosophies (such as managing fear), faith (thought not necessarily in God), and action. Lots of action. (Apr.)

"Unlimited is a very candid and thorough book that aims to help people lead more fulfilling lives."— Chicago Sun-Times 

"Michaels  offers a three-pronged approach to changing your trajectory: imagine, believe and achieve. Using examples from her own life, and those from "Biggest Loser" contestants, she shows how to shake off the fears holding you back and embrace the future."—Washington Post Express

Library Journal
Best known as a strength trainer and life coach for NBC's The Biggest Loser, Michaels (Making the Cut) helps readers build up their inner strength to imagine, believe, and achieve. In the first few chapters, Michaels convincingly argues that people can indeed eliminate the roadblocks that hold them back and achieve their dreams. She bases a good deal of her advice on her own experience as a coach and friend as she pushes readers to adjust their attitudes, get organized, strengthen their willpower, and stop making the same limiting mistakes. While there are better books on this subject (see David Gershon and Gail Straub's Empowerment, reviewed above), massive publicity efforts and Michaels's fan base will undoubtedly make Unlimited quite popular.
