Goals for Change is written in a easy and quick to read format that is designed to help you get your goals on paper so you can design your ideal life and take off with laser-like precision. Hundreds of suggestions are broken down into a six sections. Just take the ideas that interest you and skip the ones that don’t. Have what you want, be the best person you can and enjoy a life of your dreams.
This easy to read book was born out of Jess Miller’s own personal experiences and battles. He discusses the importance of avoiding the energy thieves of alcohol, drugs, tobacco, bullying, stealing, gambling, gangs and guns and knives because they not only steal your energy they also divert you from your true path in life.
If you think you are in control of your problems, chance is you are not. Your addictions may make you feel better in the short term, but Jess explains that’s just the con they play on you.
You have to manage your energy so it isn’t taken from you and that means you have to be honest with yourself as well as ever diligent.
I really liked his simple but powerful list of 50 ways to help someone with almost all of them so easy anyone can do them.
This is the first of a series of four books. The rest will no doubt also be a great read.
