Enjoyable read that provoked some insights,
This review is from: Making the Big Leap: Coach Yourself to Create the Life You Really Want (Paperback)
I enjoyed reading this book, because unlike some other life coaching books I've read, it tries to acknowledge the negative stuff that might be holding us back. Perhaps that shouldn't be my focus on a Life Coaching book! - but when I read these books I start off very positively feeling that this time I've found the book that's going to change my life, then quickly go downhill as I realise the gulf between the successful people described in these books and me seems wider and wider, until it seems like an impassible impasse and I throw the book down in frustration! At least this book had a great section on "unmet needs" and how they might be ruling our lives without us realising it. There were also some really interesting exercises and questions which try and uncover what's going on beneath the surface which I liked. All in all compared to other Life Coaching books I've read I liked this one. But I still felt that it was a bit unreal - surely we can't all become as successful as Nicky Campbell? And I'm still waiting for my "bingo moment!"
