    Many people feel called to help others and change the world, but they just don’t know how to fulfill their potential. They have the creativity and passion, but often get lost, not knowing how to direct their energies. Now, popular life coach Martha Beck shows how readers can find their calling in service and healing - while realizing their destiny. With a sparkling, compassionate, and often irreverent style, Beck draws from a combination of ancient wisdom and modern science to help readers consciously embrace vital skills that may be embedded in our DNA and are now made accessible again.

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Magical thinkers who believe "The Secret" is real and who are willing to pay over and over again for repackaged buddhism.


    What could Martha Beck have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not much. I don't really see the world the same way as the author.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Toned it down a bit. The level of enthusiasm she expressed for small things was a little over the top.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Laughter. The author kept insisting that this is not the same old new age "woo woo" but in the very next sentence would go on to espouse the same old new age mumbo jumbo. Sure she has her own labels to sell her own brand of wishful thinking, but their really is nothing new or particularly insightful here.


    Any additional comments?

    You want to succeed in life? All of these self help books can be boiled down to one simple sentence. Identify what you like and then commit yourself to the effort needed to achieve it. Everything else is just fluff and salesmanship
