Everyone knows that you are supposed to "follow your dream". But where is the road map to help you discover what that dream is? You have just found it. In Springboard, award-winning author and teacher G. Richard Shell helps you find your future. His advice: Take an honest look inside and then answer two questions: What, for me, is success? How will I achieve it? You will begin by assessing your current beliefs about success, including the hidden influences of family, media, and culture. These are where the pressures to live "someone else's life" come from. Once you gain perspective on these outside forces, you will be ready to look inside at your unique combination of passions and capabilities. The goal: to focus more on what gives meaning and excitement to your life and less on what you are "supposed" to want. Drawing on his decades of research, Shell offers personalized assessments to help you probe your past, imagine your future, and measure your strengths. He then combines these with the latest scientific insights on everything from self-confidence and happiness to relationships and careers. Throughout, he shares inspiring examples of people who found what they were meant to do by embracing their own true measure of success.
"In addition to [Shell’s] obvious expertise in the specialties of negotiation, persuasion, and interpersonal influence, his outstanding audiobook on achieving success has exactly what this kind of examination needs, common sense and encouragement."(Booklist)
"Shell's nine steps to success are simple enough to follow, and listeners may come away believing that a more prosperous life is attainable with a few tweaks and a little soul searching." (Publishers Weekly)
