Isn't It Time You Followed Your Real  Dreams?

This extraordinary book  is designed to help you achieve them. In it,  Barbara Sher goes beyond the groundbreaking principles  introduced in her phenomenal number one best  seller, Wishcraft. Here she adds an  important new element to the practical advice,  success secrets, and motivational techniques that have  transformed so many lives... because thousands of  people have told her that they can't get what they  want because they just don't know what  they want.

Do those words sound  familiar? If so, you have a common problem, and  there is a solution. And Barbara Sher has a surprise  for you. You Do know what you  want. Your life is filled with clues. Everything you  do, or don't do, has a good reason behind it. With  profound wisdom and reassurance, she helps you  peel away the layers, reveal your true hopes and  aspirations, and discover exactly what has been  holding you back. Because whatever it is Can Be  Removed.

Review:

"A life without direction is a life without passion," says motivational specialist, therapist, and career counselor Barbara Sher. In I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was, a sort of broader, less dense, and less intimidating version of What Color Is Your Parachute?, she reveals how to "recapture long lost goals, overcome the blocks that inhibit your success, decide what you want to be, and live your dreams."

This is a perfect book for new college graduates or anyone sick and tired of languishing in a dead-end job or relationship--yet reluctant to make drastic life changes due to uncertainty about what would actually inspire them. I Could Do Anything combines the I'm-not-buying your-excuses inspiration of Dr. Laura Schlessinger with the soothing, analytic encouragement of Dr. Martin Seligman in his classic Learned Optimism. In other words, Sher will pick you up off your butt and get you moving. She's included enough self-analytical exercises in here to save you hundreds of dollars in therapy.

Whether you're looking to make improvements in your job or personal life, Sher will teach you how to determine what your goals are, and how to successfully reach them--even if right now the only thing you know is that you're vaguely to very unhappy and haven't the foggiest idea what to do with yourself.

From the Back Cover:

"This book is for those who want to find their passion. It is a step-by-step guide for restructuring one's life so tha it has meaning, direction and joy. I've always recommended Wishcraft to adults who were lost and trying to find themselves. This book should be mandatory reading for all high school students to prevent them from becoming lost adults."
-- Ellen Kreidman, author of Light His Fire and Light Her Fire
