9780975358504: Living an Extraordinary Life

Why are some people able to live extraordinary and joyful lives while, for others, life seems repetitive, flat, a giant yawn, an exercise in high drama or run by fear? Robert White does not pretend to have all the answers. However, after over thirty years founding and/or leading companies like Lifespring and ARC that have graduated over one million, two hundred thousand participants from high-impact personal and organizational effectiveness seminars, he's in a good position to help you explore what works -- and doesn't work -- in your life. After selling out the hardcover edition, this is the the revised third edition deluxe softcover.

Review:

.... an extraordinary book! ... will have a positive impact on your life ... when you read it. --Ken Blanchard, author of The One Minute Manager and Gung Ho

A powerful, simple and clearly written book about important guidelines to life. --Jerry Jampolsky, M.D. Author of Love is Letting Go of Fear and Forgiveness

It's simple. It's impactful. It works. Don't just read it. Do it! --Thomas Crum, author of The Magic of Conflict

Robert is a pioneer in the personal growth business, and his philosophy of being aware, being personally responsible and masterfully communicating, launched high-impact experiences for tens of thousands of people in Japan and the United States.

I had the good fortune to know and work with Robert more than a decade ago. If you feel you are sleepwalking through your life, Robert's tough/tender book will jolt you. It reminds me of something the actor and Superman, Christopher Reeve said, Some people are walking around with full use of their bodies and they're more paralyzed than I am. -- Roger Fransecky, CEO, Apogee Consulting --Robert White

Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views (7/06)

"Living an Extraordinary Life" was written to help you find happiness and fulfillment within your life.

It is written around a framework of three concepts that need to be worked on in order for us to achieve our goals. These concepts are: Awareness, Responsibility and Communication. White teaches you how to apply these concepts into your life so that you can find your true purpose and achieve your goals.

White uses eye catching chapter titles, lists of the differences between ordinary people and extraordinary people, and meaningful quotes to get you thinking about what is coming in the chapter. White also points out behaviors and thought patterns that we tend to have that keep us just "ordinary" and not very happy.

He discusses what extraordinary people do to keep themselves at that higher level. A lot has to do with how we deal with a situation. An extraordinary person can be going through a rough time, like us, but how they process what they are going through tends to be very different from what we are processing.

Everything that he writes makes so much sense. This is the type of book that will take you some time to read. It is also a good to time to be journaling what you are thinking and feeling. I know that this book has changed my life. It is up to me to continue to work on what I need to, so that I stay at this higher level.

"Living an Extraordinary Life" is a keeper, do not let this book out of your hands. You will want to read it again at many points in your life. If you want a friend to read it, which you will, buy them a copy and hold on to yours! --Paige Lovitt for Reader Views
