The Best Year of Your Life provides the reader with the blueprints to create the life they always wanted. This is a highly practical, detailed map for becoming the 'you' you have always wanted to be.
Many of us spend our days thinking, talking and dreaming about what our lives could be if only... We make New Year's resolutions, we follow a new diet, we start exercise routines, we get to work on our lifelong goals and then...we give up, get too busy and move on. Our dreams still well out of reach. Yet all the while the life we always wanted is right in front of us, well within our grasp. In Debbie Ford's most practical and inspirational book to date, she offers a clear blueprint of how to make today, this moment be the beginning of The Best Year of Your Life.

Debbie Ford's straightforward, heartfelt style makes an old-fashioned idea seem fresh in The Best Year of Your Life. Her concept of "dream it, plan it, live it" is a detailed version of advice we've all heard about the need for clear plans, firm action and a refusal to be sidetracked--but with her gentle voice and step-by-step suggestions, the message comes across in a new way. In particular, her advice on creating mental snapshots of specific memories provides an excellent new technique for the ages-old concept of living in the moment.
Each of the three short sections include writing activities to help track your own process and short, regular affirmations that, if made part of a daily routine, can assist you in staying the course you plan for yourself. She demands plenty of honesty with yourself, and refuses to allow excuses any room on a regular basis. The result is a refreshing mix of support and toughness that lets you set your own pace as you work to map out your life goals and aim towards acting with what Ford describes as "conscious intent".
A number of stories from her own life and clients are included, and provide inspiration for readers at different stages. The examples cover a wide range, from losing a few pounds and keeping it off to making explosive changes in a relationship or career, and the resource guide that finishes the book is a welcome accompaniment if you're looking for more details on a specific technique references in one of the stories. --Jill LightnerAbout the Author:
