George Bernard Shaw had it exactly right. “Life”, the renowned Irish playwright once said, “is much more than a brief candle – it is, instead, a splendid torch to be burned as brightly as possible.”
Sandra Lewis has it exactly right as well. She is a Mississauga-based, accredited life coach and counselor – and she has seen, through her many years of practice, that some people are able to carry that splendid torch happily and successfully throughout the course of their adult lives.
But for many others, life's brief candle barely flickers, as though the hopes and dreams of their youth have been slowly extinguished by the concerns, responsibilities, and setbacks inherent in day-to-day living. These are people in search of new and better tailored direction, looking for the joy they once - or never - knew.
Lewis, the author of the book, Getting It Right: Cutting to the Chase and Creating the Life You Want, takes that search and turns it on its ear. The solution to an unfulfilled life, she says, lies directly with us. All she asks is that we recognize the difficulties that face us – many of our own making – and take the crucial and remarkably easy steps that are necessary to chart a greatly improved course.
Getting It Right is a "self-help" book with a profound difference. Within its 12 chapters, spread over just 103 pages, are important ideas that lead readers to look inside themselves and realize they had the power to find their own solutions all along. The book’s problem-solving and goal setting templates make the path to “Right” surprisingly quick, and actually quite fun. Lewis asks her readers what it is that's truly important to their life's journey; she discusses the importance of physical and emotional health and how to achieve it; she probes the issues related to family and friendships; she suggests quick and permanent ways to remove the negative influences from our lives – and then flips the coin over to discuss ways that can help us create lasting joy, and a solid sense of confidence and well-being.
Getting It Right is a remarkable, highly readable book. It can be read in a single, enjoyable sitting – and then used as a reinforcing reference tool again and again. For those who need help, for those who want to take their lives in a new direction – or simply for those who enjoy a fulfilling, time-well-spent read – Getting It Right gets it right on every level.
