Vive la vida que amas

Paula Renaye

No hay duda, la vida puede ser dura y todos tenemos que enfrentar problemas fuertes. Pero desear que tu vida sea diferente no es suficiente para lograrlo. Vivir la vida que realmente amas necesita de trabajo deliberado y de búsqueda espiritual para descubrir qué es lo que realmente quieres, por qué no lo tienes y cómo empezar a obtenerlo.

La autora Paula Renaye es como una mejor amiga que te abraza con cariño y te dice las cosas como son, aunque resulten incómodas para ti. “¡Déjate de tonterías! Eres fabuloso, puedes lograr lo que quieras.” Este libro será la llamada para despertar que has estado esperando y te mostrará paso a paso, cómo salir del estancamiento en el que estás metido con un lenguaje rudo pero sincero, ¡que funciona!

En este camino guiado a tu propio descubrimiento, finalmente podrás deshacerte del peso que cargas en la espalda y tomar las decisiones que necesitas para transformar tu vida. Aprenderás cómo definir “la vida que amas” y cómo planear las acciones para lograrlo. Simple, directo y enganchador, Vive la vida que amas también incluye:

  • Sesiones guiadas de coaching y secciones de trabajo personalizadas
  • Ejercicios prácticos y herramientas para auto analizarse
  • Estrategias para no perder la cabeza con la gente miserable y negativa
  • Técnicas para neutralizar la presión y deshacerte de la culpa

STARRED Review and Critics’ Pick from Kirkus Reviews!

Living the Life You Love: The No-Nonsense Guide to Total Transformation by Paula Renaye is now available in neighborhood and online bookstores and the reviews are coming in!

STARRED REVIEW–Kirkus Reviews

In her practical, hard-hitting yet realistic program for self-improvement, Renaye demonstrates that there’s still plenty to say in the self-help industry.

A professional life coach and transformational speaker, Renaye has created a concise, encyclopedic guide-cum-workbook that does the job of multiple existing titles, all while adding profound, useful insights and strategies to the conversation. She breaks self-exploration and retooling into manageable, sharply focused steps that help push the reader into honest reflection, emotional and physical health and, ultimately, empowerment and maturity. Though hints of other popular spiritual works shine through, such as the creation of vision boards to visualize what you want in life, the perspective is refreshingly grounded, and Renaye’s confessional, empathetic narrative invites readers to identify with her while buying into her approaches. Each chapter focuses on a discrete issue or aspect of life—feeling stuck, body wisdom, living for others—and ends with a transformational insight worksheet (copying is advisable, since space is limited) with questions for self-analysis. Even without the worksheets, tripwires for aha moments run throughout the book. Recognizing that some difficult people are unavoidable, she prescribes stockpiling diversionary tactics in advance. She also lays out simple, sanity-saving strategies for navigating conversations, as well as tips for climbing out of inevitable dips in mood. She expands the vision board concept into a vision script that can help reprogram your thinking, with guidelines, precautions and sample language for recording. She calls her methods tough love, but they’re also deeply human, compassionate and supportive.

A self-help guide with real-world value and applicability, which proves it’s never too late to grow up.

Paula Renaye will be signing her new book and making presentations in bookstores in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Colorado and Texas now through the end of November. See the Book Tour schedule here.

LIVING THE LIFE YOU LOVE
The No-Nonsense Guide to Total Transformation

by Paula Renaye

Wishing your life were different doesn’t make it so. If you want to live a life that you truly love, it takes deliberate and soul-searching work to figure out what you really want, why you don’t already have it and what you’re honestly willing to do to get it.

Like a best friend dispensing more than a little tough love, Renaye wraps a sturdy arm around your shoulders, forces you to look in the mirror and says, “You can do this,” and with a simple, step-by-step process shows you how.

Using guided coaching sessions with self-insight techniques and workbook exercises, you’ll discover what’s been holding you back and how to turn those limitations into life-transforming choices. Practical, easy-to-remember strategies help you neutralize button pushers, release guilt and stay on track, even during those “deer in the headlights” moments, while tough-love reminders motivate and hold you accountable. Whether it’s relationship, career, health or other challenges, you’ll find the tools to stop tolerating what you need to change and start living the life you truly love.

 

Paula Renaye is a five-time award-winning author, certified professional coach and speaker. She is a frequent tough-love expert on talk radio shows and in print media, and her television appearances include BookTV. Visit her Tough Love BFF Coach blog at http://paularenaye.com
