"Are you at the fork in the road of your life? At some point in time you will be faced with seeking which way to turn, where to go and the best ways to make the transition on a decision or choice that you've made. How to Get Your Joy Back! A Women's Guide to Midlife Career Transformation by Maria Luchsinger is a powerful book that can help not only women, but anyone to develop a new pathway to where you are meant to be. No matter where you stand at the fork, the information contained in this book is so informative that you can tailor your decisions to your specific needs. Maria provides you with several choices according to your current state in Part I: Where Are You Now? and then provides you with a comprehensive list of actions and exercises to perform to help you home in on the next steps in Part III: Maps For Your Journey. To add a complete enhancement to the experience, you will be guided to Part II: Connect with Your Joy and Choose a Path That Excites You! In Chapter 6 you are asked to complete The Wheel of Life Worksheet, which helps to create balance.



As soon as I began to read a few pages of this book, immediately I felt like a child at the beach eating my favorite chocolates while sticking my toes in the sea; I was elated. I love this book because of how simple and easy, yet effective, the material is. To test the material, I read chapters within Part I that closely resembled the various phases of my life from Chapter 1 - Same Career for Many Years or Why Am I Still Here? and Chapter 2 - Returning to Work After a Long Break or How Do I Get Back In? to Chapter 4 - Starting My Own Business or I Want to Do What I Want to Do! Within each chapter I was guided to sections with Part III that offered tips on how to successfully navigate the fork in the road that I've chosen. The worksheet accompanied by the wheel helped me to visually analyze the eight phases of life, from health and relationships to finances, and to determine what needed balance in my life. The references and book recommendations were a nice touch."
