Daphne Michaels to Release 'The Gifted: How to Live the Life of Your Dreams' at Book Expo in NYC, 5/29
Is it really possible for people to transform their lives-to take them to a whole new level of meaning and happiness? If it is, what kind of commitment does it take to do this, and what are the steps? Is it difficult or easy, and what are the payoffs?
In The Gifted: How to Live the Life of Your Dreams, a groundbreaking new book in the field of personal development, author Daphne Michaels shares her discoveries of the nine "gifts" we are all born with that can ensure the life of our dreams. As a young woman faced with a world that held both love and suffering, she began her own life's journey toward understanding these gifts. Through the institute she eventually founded she has for years helped hundreds of women and men transform their lives through them.
"The first three 'gifts' we must recognize and embrace if we're to re-design our lives are Awareness, Potential and Stillness," says Michaels. "Abstract though these terms may sound, they're incredibly powerful life-changing states within usif we will only get in touch with them. These first three allow us to identify and put to use the remaining six- Disharmony, Harmony, Ease, Clarity, Freedom and Engagement - and completely change our lives through them. We have the power within us to live the life of our dreams."
The Gifted answers such questions about life transformation as:
- What are the nine gifts we are born with?
- What's the real source of "unhappiness"?
- How can we use these gifts to design the lives we most want?
- What kind of commitment does it take to truly transform our lives?
- Once we make a commitment to design the life of our dreams what obstacles will we face and how can we overcome them?
"The widespread problem my book addresses is that most people feel to one degree or another powerless and unfulfilled in their lives," adds Michaels. "These nine gifts, which make every one of us 'The Gifted' of the book's title, are the keys to unlocking a life of authentic happiness."
