This review is from: Be Your Own Life Coach: How to Take Control of Your Life and Achieve Your Wildest Dreams (Paperback)Overall I have given this book 5 stars because, for me, it has actually made a big difference. I would say there are elements of the book which are far too bossy in tone - and you get a heavy dose of Fiona's self congratulatory attitude coming through. But setting aside those elements, I have to say that the questions and exercises in the book are very thought-provoking and give you a great insight into your issues, how you might start to resolve them, and the accepted truths that you believe that may be limiting your outlook.
I read through the book once, then seriously worked through the exercises as she suggests - using a notebook to write things down and ponder them. I particularly found the exercise on self-limiting beliefs and where they come from very powerful, but there are lots of sections which are worth spending time on.
I'm sure you could do this work with a life coach, but it costs a lot, and you have to commit to a regular slot of time - with this book, I worked on it intensively on a holiday, and made some progress with things that have been troubling me in quite a short time. I recommend it - but to make a difference you have to put time in too.
