Book Description

18 Jun 2001

A guide to making life’s biggest decisions, from an internationally renowned lifecoach.

Just imagine if you didn’t have to agonise over difficult decisions. If you could feel absolute confidence in the choices you made, regardless of the outcome. If you could dispense with decisions altogether, on the basis that you always knew what to do.

Well, it’s perfectly possible, according to top US lifecoach, Laura Berman Fortgang. Each of us possesses an internal compass which expresses our individual wisdom and points to the things which would make us happiest. It is perfectly possible to tap into this wisdom, to listen to our gut instincts and to make them the basis for sound life decisions.

‘Unlock the Life You Were Meant to Lead’ demonstrates how to live in tune with our inner wisdom on a daily basis, with a combination of practical exercises, client scenarios and questions to ponder. Combining Intuition (the skill of the moment) and Wisdom (knowing how to tap into that intuition and what to do with it), Laura Berman Fortgang shows us how to get in touch with our inner selves and live a life of power, grace and ease.

‘Wisdom’ is a precious resource for the new century and this is the essential guidebook…

Product Description

From the Publisher

This book will take your through three stages of blueprint excavation, which Laura has affectionately named the Reckoning, The doing, and the Being. Much like any archaelogical excavation, the bones and other findings (the Reckoning) are only the beginning. The other stages serve to put the bones together and allow what was supposed to be, and once was, to be again. As you move through the three stages, you'll work through ten strategies, each the focus of one of the chapters of this book.
Ask What, Not Why
Train the brain
Gain perspective
Act on what you feel, not on what you think
Make a simple contract
Discover your lucrative purpose
Make yourself a magnet
Become a master at focusing
Ask for directions before you are lost
Give up needing to know

Excellent read. Laura writes very well, her advice seems sound and the whole thing is not too 'American' (i.e. over the top). Don't hesitate, it may (help you) change your life, or at least change your viewpoint.

I am doing a coaching course. It is relevant and adopts a different approach to other coaching books. I liked the methodological structure. I did not really like many of the examples where all was resolved after a visit to a coaching seminar.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonferful insights and Challenging Concepts 20 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are fascinated by, or just appreciate, archaeology then there will be something very rewarding for you in Living Your Best Life, but even if you don’t then Excavating your life ‘blueprint’ through Wisdom Access Questions (WAQs) enables you to discover the true person you are, and consequently find the life you are meant to live.
I love the use of metaphors and so the comparison of coaching to archaeology was a joy to hold in my mind as I read the book. Scraping away the dirt to reveal the outline (blueprint) and allowing this to come to the surface is an engaging concept. Laura’s three stage approach; The Reckoning; The Doing; and The Being describe how the bones of your life can be found, put together and allow what was supposed to be, to be again. These stages are broken down into ten strategies that are each given a chapter.
There are numerous challenging concepts that emerge and you will need to appreciate that Laura believes that your destiny is, to a greater extent, pre-determined and that wisdom is potentially lost through bad habits that are developed as we grow. However the tools that can restore your ‘blueprint’ to its original condition are, Wisdom Action Questions, Wisdom in Action, Wisdom Writing, and Wisdom Stories.
We might not all have a single pivotal moment in our life that provides us with the stark choice that we have to turn things around, but when Laura was facing hospitalisation for severe depression she somehow summoned the resolve to find her inner wisdom.
The Reckoning stage describes as the process of eliminating the negative energy that is stopping your inner wisdom taking you to the path that leads to the destination you deserve.
