Curious about how I achieved my “a-ha” moment? What it was that made me realize that things needed to change in my life? What made me quit my job, move to the city and start my life over again? It was with the help from this simple passage from a 224-page book:
“THE TRUTH IS YOU REALLY ARE IN CONTROL – IN TOTAL CONTROL.
For some reason, you are consciously or unconsciously choosing to be in that lousy job, you are choosing to hate the single life, you are choosing to stay in a destructive relationship, you are choosing to let your daughter drive you crazy, you are choosing to sabotage anything good in your life…or whatever else it may be for you. I know it is difficult to accept the fact that you are the cause of the feelings that take away joy in life. It is very upsetting when you begin to see yourself as your own worst enemy. On the other hand, this realization is your biggest blessing. If you know you can create your own misery, it stands to reason that you can also create your own joy.” – Susan Jeffers, “Feel The Fear And Do It Anyway”
Seriously, if I never recommend another book in my entire life, I’ll die happy knowing I recommended this book to you. It helped to change my life, and, if you let it, it can help to change yours as well!
