Product Description

Product Description

In Choosing Delight Leyla Day presents the inspirational true stories of every-day people who have created a living based on their deep passions. Through these interviews, with humor and affection, Leyla Day creates exercises to help readers uncover their own life purpose and transform their lives.

Inspired by Po Bransons’ bestselling book: What Should I do with My Life? And life coach Martha Beck’s groundbreaking book: Finding Your North Star, Leyla Day proposes the premise that, faced with a sea of conventional career choices, we should choose the paths that engender delight if we want to live fulfilling lives.

The granddaddy of all career books, What Color is Your Parachute? encouraged job seekers and career changers to think about what they want to do for a living. In Choosing Delight, Leyla Day speaks directly to those who are called to change careers, leave their soul-sucking jobs and transform their lives. Whether you are leaving college or transitioning into a new phase of life and want to make a living using your creative strengths, this book can inspire you to make a change. The exercises in Choosing Delight will guide you to uncover your core desires, identify your blocks and fears and help you to take the first steps to move forward into your right life.

5.0 out of 5 stars True Inspiration! 19 May 2014
By petger schaberg - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Leyla Day knows a good story when she hears it and she also knows how to to bring it to life! All the better that these passionate stories demonstrate the ways we can reclaim our lives from the abyss. Day's fine, clear prose reminds us how we can transcend these Dark Nights of the Soul to find a life of joy and purpose.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great stories of people living their passion 20 May 2014
By Scott Taylor - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am always leery of these types of books. Few seem to offer any concrete advise or more so, it seems an author is more interested in hearing their self talk as if more words in a book means something. This is a quick and effective read. The stories are of real people...common everyday people who have taken a move to do something different. People I can relate to. And that is what I get from this book...just make a move. These people challenged their own personal status quo and in doing so made a difference with their lives and the people around them.

My only hope is that the author writes another book with more great stories.
5.0 out of 5 stars Extraordinary. 16 Aug. 2014

Leyla Day's book conveys some great life-enhancing experiences with an empathetic excitement that reveals as much about the author as her subject. The book is beautifully written and will carry you along from one peak to another before you realize that you are really reading about yourself, the possibility of a fresh, new look at yourself. Day draws us artfully and inexorably into accepting her faith in our ability to realize our human potential by showing us how ordinary people have counsciously crafted extraordinary lives.
5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring stories + practical exercises = a great book + positive change 27 Jan. 2015
By regretfreelife - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A wonderful collection of inspiring stories PLUS useful and practical exercises to help apply the lessons learned from each of the stories. I particularly like the story of the founder of "Tenkara" fishing in the US. The lesson: less can be more. Something we all know, of course, but after reading the story of a fly-fisherman-turned-entrepreneur, something clicked! Highly recommend all of the stories in this great book!
5.0 out of 5 stars Helpful stories and action steps no matter at what stage of your career you are in 24 Jun. 2014
By J. P. Evans - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book is a very quick read as you travel through various "case studies" which are capped by action steps. Even if you are well down your career path and are mostly satisfied and happy, the book will focus your attention on reviewing areas that could changed to bring even more joy. Alternatively, if you need a wholesale re-think of your previous choices, the steps are also applicable. Thanks for the insights Leyla.
