"Great lessons, great stories, great message, great book! Unsinkable is a very important and profound message our world greatly needs today. This is a must-read!"
—Dr. Joe Vitale, author of The Attractor Factor

"Resilience is key to an individual's longevity and success. Life almost guarantees that we'll get knocked off track from time to time, but Sonia's book Unsinkable is the life jacket you need to not only keep you afloat, but to soar!"
—Bob Proctor, teacher in The Secret and best-selling author of You Were Born Rich

"Unsinkable is a must-read for everyone who has ever felt that they were sinking—or has watched helplessly as someone they love seemed to be going down. The stories Sonia shares of people who have triumphed will take your breath away; the advice that she offers so gently and humbly on how to pull yourself back from the brink will show you there is always a way up and out; and the courage she has shown by sharing her own heart-wrenching story will change your life forever."
—Debra Poneman, best-selling co-author of Chicken Soup for the American Idol Soul and founder of Yes to Success Seminars, Inc.

"In Sonia Ricotti's new book, Unsinkable, you will learn how to achieve serenity in the midst of chaos, turn obstacles into wonderful opportunities, and be happy even when life isn't perfect. Lemons to lemonade, just my kind of plan!"
—Loral Langemeier, CEO/founder of Live Out Loud and best-selling author of the Millionaire Maker series and Put More Cash in Your Pocket

"Unsinkable is more than a book; it's a blueprint for living life at the highest level of awareness and taking responsibility for being a co-creator in the process.
—John St. Augustine, best-selling author of Every Moment Matters and Living an Uncommon Life

A financial crisis, a divorce, losing your job or a loved one, a health scare—we all face painful, life-shattering events at some point. They can leave us feeling drained and drowning in depression. Author Sonia Ricotti draws upon her own experiences, as well as those of other high-profile self-help leaders, to help you overcome these difficult situations with ease, and bounce back quicker and higher than you thought possible.

Unsinkable is not only inspiring, but it offers clearly written, step-by-step tools, strategies, stories, and exercises that will teach you how to:

  • Powerfully move forward, take action, and create the life you deserve.
  • Transform your way of thinking—and feel better now.
  • Experience inner peace and happiness—no matter what your circumstances.
  • Release your negative past experiences and create a new and exciting present and future.

Ricotti gives you direct access to her unique gifts as a world-renowned transformational teacher, including the 20 Lessons to Live By When Life Knocks You Down. Lessons such as:

  • Say Yes! to Change.
  • Let Go of What Was.
  • Within Every Crisis Lies a Golden Opportunity.
  • Have Faith in What Will Be.
