Starrgirl's review of: I Could Do Anything if I Only Knew What It Was: How to Discover What You Really Want and How to Get It
Barbara Sher is one of my favorite self-help authors and this book was my introduction to her work. It has been around for a while but the information is pretty timeless. Barbara's down-to-earth writing style is perfect for relaying her ideas to the average person stuck in a rut. Barbara herself is not a glamour girl making the rounds of the self-help circuit, dazzling the crowds with glitz and shallow dreams. No, she has good credentials, a good career foundation and many years of experience coaching people in making productive changes. Just reading the book may not change your life, but if you are ready for a new direction and you really work the exercises laid out here, it can get the wheels spinning in your head. And that's what it's all about. Only you can put yourself on a different path, and if you need help doing that, Barbara will make suggestions, based on your own interests, and soon you'll be looking at options for the future you didn't realize were there. Barbara also gives you motivation, by means of real-life examples, to push yourself into exploring those options. If you're ready for a change, this book will help get you started.
