Living your dream and following your heart are possible for anyone willing to engage life with passion, according to Sinetar, an organizational psychologist, who has studied many people who have become successful doing what they love. Self-esteem, overcoming resistance, accepting and forgiving oneself, taking risks, and more are addressed in this visionary yet practical view of merging life and work.
Topics explored in this dialogue include: how to discover your unique talents - and then pursue them, what is spiritual intelligences and how you can deepen yours, how to start trusting yourself, how do you keep negativity at bay, how life supports risk-taking (and how to be sensible about it!), how to break out of your comfort zone, and mentors: how to find them and how to be one.
"boring and scattered"
Using the Hansel and Gretel myth as a metaphor for life, psychologist and writer Sinetar speaks to those who are attempting to live their deepest calling in the midst of a seductive world. Happiness begins on the inside and does not depend on externals or material things, according to her. She emphasizes the power of a positive view without being pollyannish, and stresses how optimism is essential for the creative process to unfold.
