Whether you want to change your waistline or the world, your
workplace or your state of mind, the process of altering anything requires
a similar set of strengths. Find Your Power offers a toolkit of insights
and strategies to help you develop them. It's in three parts.
Part 1: The Power to Begin describes how to get clearer about what you want
and motivate inspired action towards this.
Part 2: The Power to Move Through Blocks looks at ways of dealing with
fear, how to change stuck patterns, creative problem-solving strategies and
methods for transforming crisis and failure into turning points.
Part 3: The Power to Keep Yourself Going explores ways of maintaining the
energy, enthusiasm and determination needed for any long-term project.
