The Book of Life was written to help people be happy with whatever they have so that they can go on to be successful in life with whatever they do.  This is not a book to create wealth, lose weight, find the right partner, etc.  It’s a book to create joy in your life . . .  to create satisfaction with whatever is in your life . . . and, to banish fear from your life.

Although our beliefs shape our lives, they are only personal beliefs and do not necessarily hold true for others.  They have been passed on to us from our parents, teachers, and authority figures and we believe them.

The Book of Life offers practical ideas and useful exercises on creating a better life, which are presented in a down to earth, easy to read manner. The understanding you may gain will enable you to break free of the beliefs that are holding you back. This book can literally change your life.
