iChoose 2 to Love My Life
Being a perfectionist, I have a small library of self-help books--resources to help motivate me to get organized, be more productive, tame clutter, and be that pulled-together Mother with her well-groomed little ones in tow.
OK, OK, I know that's a high goal (I did write that I'm a perfectionist).
Of all the books and workbooks I've read, iChoose 2 Love My Life is a gem! Don't underestimate its portable size and think it's not up to par as the thicker, expensive ones. There's no lengthy intro, which I appreciate, but the book enables you to jump right in and start making changes, leading you towards "the life you love."
Each chapter offers small, bite size "lessons" with an assignment for the upcoming week. Topics include time management, finances, family life, and more.
I've found that the changes are cumulative--there's a method! Don't skip ahead and I recommend not doing more than one chapter a week. Go through it as written and before you know it, you'll be able to look back and see that you're meeting a goal or two!
For me, the best part of the book is that it's caused me to think and address some underlying issues--in fact, after the first chapter, I realized the cause of why I haven't been able to make lasting changes in certain areas. Now that I've identified the issue, I can address my attitude.
I'm also impressed with the ibloom ladies--these ladies genuinely care about the women they're helping and continue offering and developing products to help enrich women's lives.
For the first time, I firmly believe that I will be closer to the woman I want to be a year from now!
Until then, I'm going to continue enjoying the journey.
Also, be on the lookout for an upcoming giveaway for a couple of copies you can win for yourself!
