Publisher's Summary

Everyone knows that you are supposed to "follow your dream". But where is the road map to help you discover what that dream is? You have just found it. In Springboard, award-winning author and teacher G. Richard Shell helps you find your future. His advice: Take an honest look inside and then answer two questions: What, for me, is success? How will I achieve it? You will begin by assessing your current beliefs about success, including the hidden influences of family, media, and culture. These are where the pressures to live "someone else's life" come from. Once you gain perspective on these outside forces, you will be ready to look inside at your unique combination of passions and capabilities. The goal: to focus more on what gives meaning and excitement to your life and less on what you are "supposed" to want. Drawing on his decades of research, Shell offers personalized assessments to help you probe your past, imagine your future, and measure your strengths. He then combines these with the latest scientific insights on everything from self-confidence and happiness to relationships and careers. Throughout, he shares inspiring examples of people who found what they were meant to do by embracing their own true measure of success.

"Shell's nine steps to success are simple enough to follow, and listeners may come away believing that a more prosperous life is attainable with a few tweaks and a little soul searching." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Great book and fascinating perspective on success"

    Springboard provided the framework I am using to start the next chapter of my professional and personal life. While other books prescribe a one-size-fits-all approach, this book walks you through the steps of defining success on your own terms and the means of achieving it. I only wish the audiobook was accompanied by online templates for the exercises.

    "Incredible book of Reflection and Success"

    This is one of the best books I have ever experienced. It was interesting, thought provoking and enjoyable to listen too. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who feels stuck in there present position or is passing through a transition phase of work or life. I can sing enough of its praises.
