From the Inside Flap
Do you spend time so fixated on life′s obstacles that you cannot see the way ahead? Is your life governed by mere chance or by empowered choice? Can changing the way you view the world actually affect your experience?
Don′t Wait for Your Ship to come in... provides the practical tools that will allow you to achieve positive lasting change in your life.

It provides simple techniques for relaxation, composing effective positive life affirmations, working out personal values, motivation, doing a life–view to target areas for change and goal setting, avoiding self–sabotage and increasing confidence and happiness.

I real thought provoking book. Was in good condition and arrived in excellent time. Would recommend it to anyone with confidence issues or with a major life change.Published on 20 Jun. 2012 by Ms. A. Simkiss
