Now in its 11th printing, and translated into eight languages, Empowerment: The Art of Creating Your Life As You Want It is widely considered to be a classic in the field of personal empowerment and transformation. Much more than a collection of inspiring principles, the book guides readers step-by-step through a systematic self-transformation program addressing seven key areas of life: relationships, sexuality, money, work, body, emotions and spirituality. Empowerment is based on its authors' two decades of work helping thousands of people create the life of their dreams. Its simple premise--that our thoughts and beliefs create the conditions of our life--is illustrated with anecdotes from each of the seven areas. Readers are then given practical and immediately applicable tools to help envision and create what they wish to achieve in each of these areas. With over 60,000 copies sold, and with America's interest in self-transformation growing every day, Empowerment promises to be a strong title for years to come.
