The Half-lived Life
Overcoming Passivity and Rediscovering your Authentic SelfeBook - 2012
So this is my life? What happened to the person I thought I might be at this stage of the game? Where did that person go? Why am I feeling like I'm just treading water, trying to stay one step ahead of my bills and obligations. Anyway, I'm just too tired at this point to try to figure out where that other person went. But I sure expected to be living a different life than this one.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Most people in their forties, fifties, and beyond catch themselves saying something similar to this. Everyone has a mental image of the person they want to be, but few of us actually fulfill these wishes. Once people realize they are living a completely different life than they'd envisioned, they often think it is too late to change and carry on with the same old habits. Too many people settle for a half-lived life.<P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt> <P style=MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt>Best-selling author John Lee has long been addressing the fallacy of this attitude in talks and workshopsand now he sets this program into book form. In The Half-Lived Life, he introduces and explains how passivity holds us hostage to old ways of doing thingsand provides solutions on escaping this paralyzing state of mind, body, and spirit while increasing our emotional intelligence (EQ). He also shows the freedom to be gained via compassionate assertivenessan outgrowth of setting boundaries and enforcing limits. Just as Lee's seminars have successfully led many to find their authentic self in the second half of their life, so too will this book.
