Recently I spoke in Marinette, Wisconsin and was introduced to the work of Sonia Choquette. The event directors were raving about the wonderful program Sonia had done for them in Green Bay and thought her book would fit so nicely in with my advice to slow down and focus on what is important in life.
Your Heart’s Desire was a very interesting read for me. I must admit, I’m not particularly comfortable with the metaphysical, but I don’t think anyone goes through a near-death experience without coming out the other side with a clear sense there is more to life than meets the eye.
As I made my way through the nine principles to creating the life you really want, I found myself dog-earing many pages. So much of it rang true for me.
Some of those items were:
- Avoiding energy-sucking monsters (phone calls from whiners who waste your time, memorabilia turned into emotional cement, and daily doses of doubt)
- How to organize your life around your dream rather thank trying to force your dream into an already chaotic life.
- Giving yourself permission to be the person you want to be, because no-one else can.
- Not defeating your dream with the way to talk about it.
One of the best things I can say about this book is it has stayed with me since I finished it. The examples from Sonia’s life and her lessons pop up in my mind regularly.
