This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to lead an enjoyable and fulfilling life, helping you to become more aware of yourself and others around you. Have you ever felt really stuck? Like every day was a struggle to get through and you knew in your heart the next day would feel the same? After years of hard work and little to show for it, every day starts to feel like hard work. Facing daily discouragement and defeat weighs heavily on you. Have you lost your self-confidence and doubted everything you were doing? Are you frozen by the fear of failure? The irony of life can develop into many of our problems and become stumbling blocks that hold us back. They are often there because we get stuck in our own way of doing things. We can create a prison of continued, daily suffering for ourselves. And all we can do is agonize because we desperately want out. Each day you wake up in a fog hoping the cloud will lift. We simply can't see clearly enough to evaluate our problems and realize that each problem links back to an action or thought that created it. If only we could see this, we could untangle the threads and clear up our lives. Knowing the cause can make the problem much easier to fix if we can just get our minds in the right place. As you get older, it is all too easy to get in a rut - with fixed viewpoints, stuck emotions, ways that others can see clearly but you just think are "right". A life full of safe solutions, but if you start to shut out new experiences, or if you take less interest in new things, your capacity for enjoying life can diminish. You stay in your comfort zone, and as you get older, your comfort zone gets smaller and smaller. This is harmful because you stop doing things that give you pleasure. You need to stop worrying and start living, not just to be happy but for health reasons as well. Feeling good is not just a luxury; it is a vital necessity for good health and a long life.
