Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Whenever I begin a challenging new project or want to turn over a new leaf, I find myself reaching for one of Valorie's guides on my shelf or checking out her latest one. If I'm having a tough day or a setback, a few pages of her wisdom is how I get back on track. Thanks again Valorie, for always delivering the encouragement I need to keep pursuing my soul's goals. This book is great because you literally can dip into it 5 minutes at a time and take away the energy and momentum to move yourself forward."

    I've always been a huge fan of Steven Covey's books, then I disc

    I've always been a huge fan of Steven Covey's books, then I discovered Valorie Burton and I like hers as well. This must be my fourth or fifth book by her. I met her once in New York and she is the genuine article. Her words have a way of speaking to my deepest desires--even if I haven't yet acknowledged them--and encouraging them to blossom. What I like is the way she ties success to spirituality. We achieve so much more when we focus intentionally and spiritually on a goal. Whenever I begin a challenging new project or want to turn over a new leaf, I find myself reaching for one of her guides on my shelf, or, checking out her latest one. If I'm having a tough day or a setback, a few pages of her wisdom is how I get back on track. Today I was seeking to renew my courage to let go of the something "safe" that is keeping me too busy to pursue something "amazing." Read p. 152 I'm going for it. Thanks again Valorie for always delivering the encouragement I need to keep pursuing my souls goal's. Highly recommend this author if you like self help/motivation. And this book is great because you literally can dip into it 5 minutes at a time and take away the energy and momentum to move yourself forward. The only disappointing thing about this book is that there is limited space to fill in answers to the questions. I have a little notebook that I use with it instead--which actually works better because I plan on sharing this book with my sister and coworker when I'm done.
