Have you ever felt like there are too many choices, that you just don’t know what to do? Perhaps you are surviving in life but not thriving yet and are looking for some guidance and practical tools for how to get there.
Going in the Right Direction the Wrong way, How to Get Back on Track is a book designed to help you clarify and move along a more fulfilling path in life on a 3-step upward spiral to success. This is achieved through stories and practical exercises focusing on the 3 key elements of Confidence, Clear Direction and Communication.
David Woodier demystifies the idea of Confidence by identifying the internal traits of self-belief and how they are the foundation of whether we feel we can achieve something or not. He clarifies that setting goals when you don’t feel inspired or you don’t really feel you can achieve them is a costly exercise in time, money, energy and focus. He provides step-by-step tools so you can build your confidence muscles internally and achieve more as well as externally in how you connect with others.
Inspired by the Human Behavior Specialist Dr. John Demartini’s Values Determination process, David shares simple questions anyone can answer, which show you what you truly value, and as a result, this helps you simplify your purpose and Clarify your Direction. This information is coupled with specific practical actions to help with executing your plans, including an exercise called, How to Get Rewarded Handsomely for What You Love to Do.
In the section on Communication, David provides what some may consider magic words, as he details the exact phrases to say to open, maintain and close a conversation as well as how to deal with interruptions and objections. Coupled with some helpful psychological devices (including presentation techniques and unconscious tools of persuasion), you will be better prepared than ever to handle meeting new people or selling a product and will even be able to take an impromptu wedding speech in your stride.
Inspiring Menus are provided, which detail easy, hard, and fun tasks explained in the book that you can practice after you finish reading. This systematic approach draws together related exercises you practice or carry out over a week, which is easier, increases retention, improves confidence, and results in a clearer path ahead for you.
It took David an investment of 30 countries and attending nearly 70 personal development workshops before he completed this book of what he has found works. The ideas shared in these pages are drawn from career experiences ranging from picking fruit before dawn to being flown to work and earning six-figure salaries to being a speaker at Burning Man and headhunted to work in Las Vegas for a casino company.
If you haven’t found inspiration where you’ve been looking, then this may just be the book you’ve been waiting for.
“Shine your light so brightly, it illuminates the path for others.”
