Are You Ready for a Life Change?

Connie Sokol's new book is out and I'm excited about it! I love her work. She's inspirational and fun and just a really nice gal.

Admittedly, to get my review out for this tour I had to race through it, but that doesn't mean I didn't find it a wonderfully inspirational book. This is an expanded version of how to create a life plan that I had the pleasure of doing when I did her Faithful, Fit & Fabulous book and her online 8 week course (which I highly recommend btw). In reviewing the steps, it struck me that perhaps my own life plan needs a little tweaking.

I also, happen to be reading a book called The Kaizen Way which says to break things into small non-scary chunks to get around our fears and accomplish meaningful things and to give yourselves small inexpensive but meaningful rewards. It struck me that Connie uses a very Kaizen approach with all her books.

I've also listened to her Get Organized! and Becoming a More Christ-Centered Woman in the past two weeks and found echoes of all her works bouncing off each other.

The thing I love most about Connie and her works is that they are a true reflection of how she lives e her daily life and that she cares enough to share her bits of wisdom to the rest of us to make our own lives that much easier.

In short: Get the book. Do the work. Live the life you have always wanted but have been too afraid to go out and get. It's all there. All you have to do is believe.

Ready to jumpstart your life, but not sure how?

Years ago I was fat, unfulfilled, and unfocused. Then I got serious about making changes, writing an achievable life vision and goals. Starting with weight, I lost twenty-five pounds and gained great energy. This motivated me to organize my home and time, rediscover the joy in parenting, and speak professionally part-time to share with others what I had learned.

That was my ideal life change, what’s yours?

"I love your book!! I read it once last week and now I'm reading it again and marking it. I can see it making a difference in my life. I'm realizing that I don't have to do it all at once." Jodi Anderson

"Before I started this [book], I wanted to break down my goals into weekly accomplishments in a goal setting program. I can't believe it, this is exactly what I have been looking for!" Brea Mefford

"I love this program. It really helps me to be accountable, and more importantly, to see progress. I increased my weekly income by better than half. I paid off two credit cards and my overdraft. My husband was able to pay off his car, and I have completely revamped my business goals and direction. Thank you!" Andrea Johnson
