Love It, Dont Leave It, left me remembering how lucky I am to have my job. And that is exactly what authors Beverly Kaye and Sharon Jordan-Evens set out to do: to show people how to appreciate where they are in life. This book isnt just an asset for people with career issues, but for anyone who wants to get more out of any situation. By offering guidelines, scenarios, even scripted dialogue, this book convincingly demonstrates that you really can get what you want out of life. The authors say that:
What you want could be found right where you are. Perhaps all you need to do is get clear about whats missing and go after it. Look inside before you jump outside. Master the art and science of asking for what you want.
The real message in Love It, Dont Leave It, is that the desires youve been longing to fulfil might be right under your nose, and it offers the tools that will help you tailor-make your life to fit your passions.
Another advantage of this book is the A-Z format. Every letter of the alphabet is associated with a key point so that you will easily remember helpful tools. Also, many of the key points and terms are in color or bold, alongside quotes and insights that the authors call T-shirt truths. They are messages that have been found on shirts and other random places that would make you say, Boy, aint that the truth?
This book has the advice you want if you are looking to change your outlook. As the authors say, this book is an excellent maintenance manual for anyone seeking to tune up a significant portion of their waking hours. So, before you waste any more time, get this book and learn how to change your life by changing the way you think.. It will be the best gift you could give yourself.
