Begin to live a life that brings you, not others, a great sense of fulfilment. Learn how to embrace life changes and not fear them.
I had already read Bronwen’s previous book on perfectionism, and so my expectations were high and this book did not disappoint. Using her personal experiences, she seems to know exactly what I am thinking and feeling. There were so many 'aha' moments throughout this book and the steps are so easy to implement. However, this is far more than a motivational book, because of the question section in each chapter, I felt this could be used as a journal also to inspire the reader to make the necessary changes in their lives. The Nuffdoms really helped me ask myself the right questions, and give me a clear direction. I also thought the analogy of the jigsaw puzzle pieces in a box, really described my life. This book will help anyone understand what makes them tick, why they make the decisions they do and help them discover what they want out of life. If you feel lost and in a rut, then I would highly recommend this book.
