Decades of self-help volumes have said here's the answer; do what we say and It All Gets Better. And while what they suggest may be right for some people, it's never right for everyone.
If you're tired of authors telling you what to do, be, or have without taking into account who you are to begin with, this is your book. Clean Out Your LifeCloset encourages you to write your own story of change based on your history, your life experiences, and your personal goals. Author Corbie Mitleid is your guide and mentor, accompanying you on your journey.
Discovering how to "get clear" on your purpose, your relationships, and your connection with Spirit allows you to simplify your life, learn the delights of going with the flow, and actually make friends with Stress, that 21st century constant companion. Through stories and examples, you can find your own answers, design your own toolbox, and discover that healing the old and creating the new can be a positive, joyful, and soul-satisfying experience.
If you could sum up The Self-Development Project in three words, what would they be?
Cogent. Sassy. Smart.
What did you like best about this story?
Corbie's self help recommendations are succinct, funny, accessible and really, really smart. Her reading of it is like listening to a really funny, well acted, informative self-help Broadway play. I hated when I got home and had to turn it off!
Which scene was your favorite?
I liked all the scenes, but I especially liked the story about her perfectionist mother and how to release perfectionism from our own lives. The freedom we can experience once we move to "good enough" is transformative.
What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Self-Development Project?
I am getting rid of "stuff". I am cleaning out my life closest, streamlining my wardrobe and kitchen, and soaring!
Any additional comments?
Everyone needs to listen to this audible book. I recommend listening to the audible and buying the hard copy, as I did, in order to be able to complete the assignments. However, the performance is priceless, so don't miss the audible version.

This audiobook was great to hear as I love to hear Corbie's voice. Many times I found myself answering out loud to her questions and wish I wasn't driving but somewhere else with a notepad. I'm glad to have this same book on paper too as it was easier for me to do the work from each lesson. I must admit though, I have plenty of catching up to do.
The best part of the book is that it gave me a sense that I belong where I am, with the problems I have because I created them for my own growth. The lessons have helped me realize how I was able to solve some and how I should have been able to proceed after them.
Corbie's simplicity in explaining each situation as if she was actually there gave me hope that everything is doable. each and every lesson gives you a good sample and a set of tools to use that only applies to you.
There is no one's life in this world that can't stand to have improvement. Some years we need a little help, and some years we need it by the truckful.
Corbie has, in this audiobook, warmly shared her tips, tricks, and lessons-learned in a warm and delicious, friendly voice that will entertain and enlighten you. If you work along with her simple exercises, I can't see how this book could not help to improve most anyone's life.
Dive in, and let the high-grade advice and happy approach to life's challenges improve your world from end to end.
