This is a no-nonsense you can do it, go for it, feel good about yourself book that is dedicated to inspiring you to become who you were born to be. It is to be used as a quick reminder of the talents you possess. When you need a quick pick me up when you're feeling down take a peek at Pick Me Up to get back on track. Typically, someone or something reminded you of an attribute that isn't your strong point and now you're dwelling on that instead of acknowledging it and focusing on what are your strong points. We all have areas that we're strong in and other areas that we are not. No one is perfect. Don't worry yourself silly over it. It's just a waste of time.
There are far too many influences in your life that can literally stop you from becoming who you were born to be. Your well-meaning parents, colleagues and friends may have talked you out of what you wanted to do for fear you might be get hurt or not make enough money. The list could go on and on. I know because I've done it myself. At the time I thought I was looking out for my friend. I know now that it was what she wanted to try and I talked her out of having that experience. It won't happen again.
Too often you can get caught up in the day to day activities of your life that you forget who you are and what you wanted. The demands of earning a living and societies' pressure can make you lose sight of what you initially wanted to do. Some day you may even wake up and ask yourself "Why am I doing this. Am I happy doing this? Is this bringing me joy? Am I out of whack with who I am? Does this really fit who I am?" Are you lost in the "doing" of life instead of the "being" of life? To "BE" is to be who you are in an authentic, in the moment way. It's a "Here I am take it or leave it attitude" A good question to ask yourself is if money, time and education weren't a factor, what would you be doing now? When you're young and contemplating what you want to be when you grow up you are actually closer to who you are then when you start factoring in the above criteria.
Who are you anyway? What makes you stand out? What are the unique blend of talents and experiences that only you can offer?
The purpose of this book is to remind you that you are truly a unique individual who has a lot to offer in your own unique way. Figure out what that is and use it to your advantage. When you're feeling down and losing confidence in yourself, pick this book up to remind you that you do have a unique blend of talents and you just need the right venue to express them.

About the Author

Michelle is a Speaker, Author and Certified Core Passion Facilitator who helps you discover your truth. She inspires you to ignite the spark within and encourages you to magnify your talents. Her goal is for you to live up to your true potential by becoming who you were born to be.
For many years she drifted from one management position to another while getting by on her talents. She got side tracked by the promotions and "atta girl" comments. She finally realized something was missing, she wasn't doing what she wanted to do but what others wanted her to do. She made a decision to change that.
She became a Certified Effectiveness Coach (CEC) and Certified Effectiveness Trainer (CET). The exposure to this type of thinking led to deeper transformational work in studying the Core Passions, Law of Attraction and other thought leaders.
It was through her certification process in the Core Passions that she realized the gifts and challenges that she had been experiencing ALL her life. It defined the most rewarding time of her life as well as the most difficult. Through this self-reflection she came to the realization that ALL her decisions were based on her top five Core Passions. It was the answer she was looking for. She now knew what to do, what her purpose was in life. She now helps people define their own true heart's desire. Her goal is to help you stop drifting and align your natural talents with your purpose.
Her 30 plus years of managing employees in the corporate and government sector has honed her ability to recognize and utilize the natural talents and strengths a person possess. Combined with the Core Passion Assessment, she is able to get to the heart of what really drives and attracts a person to certain activities and careers. It is through this awareness that you too can discover and live your truth.
Michelle has learned to combine her natural gifts of communication (Toastmasters: ACG, ALB) and business experience, knowledge, and education (B.S. Int'l Bus) to form her own business in doing what she feels compelled to do, helping people discover their own truth.
Michelle enjoys reading, walking, biking, flower gardening and hanging out with friends and family but not necessarily in that order.
