Finding Your Coach: Diving Deep Within by Melinda J. Kelly is a non-fiction self-help book for individuals who find themselves in something of a deadlock when determining which direction their life should be taking. Kelly explains that, like herself, many will hold on to what they have committed themselves to for years simply out of habit, because so much time has already been invested, and/or because they feel like letting go would be too risky or emotionally devastating. What Kelly hopes to achieve in this insightful guide is to give readers the tools necessary to dive deep and find their way, choosing a path that leads to fulfillment and success in all of its many forms.
Melinda J. Kelly has compiled a well constructed and extremely personal reference based on decades of work and experience in Finding Your Coach: Diving Deep Within. I found the inclusion of her own stories made everything she presented that much more relatable, with my favorite part being three, where she discusses what success means to different people. The standout line and my own “Aha!” moment didn't arrive until the end when she says, “ An old phrase that has taken me a long time to understand and one that I quoted earlier—'Success is getting what you want; happiness is wanting what you get'—was one of my guiding stars.” Kelly has a great deal to offer and I'd recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves at a crossroads in their life...and frankly, at one point or another, that is all of us.
