When the book ‘Get the Life you Want’ arrived…

October 18, 2011

Hope you enjoyed part one ‘An article that caught my eye…‘.  Here is the next installment.

Noel Walker’s book Get the Life you Want (GTLYW) had just been published and he offered to send me a proof copy to show me the quality of their books and also suggested that I read it to find out more about what OpenLeaf was, and what it stood for.

What I didn’t know at the time was that from our conversation something else had also caught his ear regarding my interest on the training side – talk about chance conversations! For me the conversation was around my passion for writing, how much I have always feared standing up in front of people (but had always quietly wanted to become a trainer) and how much I wanted more time at home with my children whilst they were still young. These were already things I was working on with my life coach. She was the one who had encouraged me to go on a train the trainer course (which happened to be booked the following week) and to allow myself to read my magazines. I waited for Noel’s book to turn up.

And so it did, the very next day, less than 24 hours after I had spoken with him. He suggested that I work through each chapter rather than skim over it, but I had already decided to keep detailed notes as I went along. I spent a month or so fully digesting the book and its messages and wrote him a review* (which is now printed in the GTLYW Pocket guide).

My life is now taking off…

* You’ll have to wait until tomorrow for my review of GTLYW Pocket Guide!

I will be adding sign up facility to the blog soon so you can receive these installments by email and read what happens next!

If this is your first time to the site – welcome!

Hope you’re in for a great day too.
