“The Best Year of Your Life” is a remarkable book by Debbie Ford and one of the best I’ve read on how to bring forth your fullest Self with intention, courage, integrity, creativity, and commitment. I’m going to be working the process of this book over the year (and beyond) and I imagine many posts will reflect that. I’d like to share a few quotes to give you a taste of what it’s about.
“The best year of your life depends not on some outside accomplishment but on allowing the greatest expression of yourself to be unveiled. (It’s) about becoming the person you always wanted to be. It’s about embracing a vision of yourself at your best and developing the qualities that will take you there.
“We each must make a commitment to chip away at our self-imposed limitations and take the time to discover the ways we have hidden our talents and covered up our deepest desires.
“It’s time to break through the illusion that the best year of your life exists somewhere out there, in the future….
It’s not about getting all the things you think you need to be happy…what it does require is for you to develop those parts of yourself that are yearning to be expressed…it’s about living each day grounded in reality, with passion and excitement for life.
She goes on to give a thorough blueprint for bringing all this about, not pulling any punches about the courage, honesty, focus, and persistence that will be required. This book is important to me because it too much of my life energy gets diffused through procrastination, lack of discipline, negative self-talk, limited beliefs, and many other things. It’s time to truly step into my power and “be the greatest expression of (myself), knowing there is no finer contribution (I) can make to this world than fulfilling (my) highest potential.”
I’m excited about the possibilities this endeavor might bring about; I feel like a kid in a candy store wondering what I might discover, learn, let go of, be challenged by, shift , create, accomplish! Let the journey begin. Join me. Leave comments!
