Sind Sie zufrieden mit Ihrem Leben, so wie es ist? Oder sagen Sie: Soll’s das wirklich schon gewesen sein? Wenn Sie sich insgeheim denken, dass irgendwo Größeres auf Sie wartet, Ihnen aber noch der letzte Anstoß fehlt, um endlich die verdammte Komfortzone zu verlassen, dann sind Sie hier genau richtig. Denn Jen Sincero wird Sie packen und von der Couch ziehen, damit Sie endlich das Leben leben, auf das Sie selbst neidisch wären. Aber Vorsicht: Nach diesem Buch ist das Leben definitiv anders! Jen Sinceros eigenes Leben war lange Zeit alles andere als berauschend: Sie hangelte sich von einem schlechten Job zum nächsten, hatte nie genug Geld und fuhr ein Auto, das fast auseinanderfiel. Bis sie entschied, dass sie etwas ändern muss. Sie las gefühlt jedes Selbsthilfebuch auf dieser Welt und ging zu Seminaren, bei denen man Leute umarmen oder seine Wut an einem Kissen auslassen musste. Und – es half. Jen Sincero schrieb ihr erstes Buch und schließlich noch ein zweites, das zu einem Bestseller wurde. Sie arbeitete als Coach, gab Seminare, reiste um die Welt und sprach vor großem Publikum. Sie erreichte genau das, wovon sie immer geträumt hatte. Jetzt gibt Jen Sincero ihre Erkenntnisse und ihr Wissen weiter und zeigt, wie man die Fähigkeiten, die in einem schlummern, endlich zum Blühen bringt. Es geht darum, sich glasklar darüber zu werden, was einen glücklich macht und wobei man sich am lebendigsten fühlt, und es dann mutig umzusetzen, statt sich einzureden, man könnte es nicht schaffen. Mit viel Humor und Schlagfertigkeit gibt sie praktische Ratschläge und zeigt Übungen, die dabei helfen die Selbstsabotage zu beenden und das zu erreichen, wovon man träumt.
