By Markus Buckingham
What the Happiest and Most Sucessful Women Do Differently
In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to bring fulfillment, peace, and control into a woman’s life.
In today’s world, can a woman truly “have it all”? A fulfilling career full of passion and performance? A belief that she is truly becoming the best, authentic version of herself? A happy, healthy life outside of work?
Countless women would roll their eyes at the possibility. Work is overwhelming. And for many of them, add the necessities of family and home. It all feels disconnected, out of control, and relentless.
In Find Your Strongest Life, Marcus Buckingham reveals the powerful key to help women draw enough strength from life to feel fulfilled, loved, successful, and in control. Even more, he helps women reconnect with their purpose and gives a starting point for change. A research-based message that applies to work and life, Find Your Strongest Life shows women a “unified theory” for how they really can have it all . . . the right kind of all.
My Review: ♥ ♥
This book was well written and thought out. It does have some valuable information, including the Strongest Life Role Test, that would help a woman find what career she should pursue. But I can’t recommend it because I don’t accept the basic premise of the book. I spent the first six chapters wondering how I got this far in life without realizing how unhappy I am. I thought I was a basically happy person, but according to this book, I’m wrong. According to this book, no woman is happy unless she has a satisfying, fulfilling career. It doesn’t matter what other things she has going for her, if she’s in the wrong career or her career is not what she would like it to be, she’s unhappy. And pity the poor woman who decides to forego her career for the sake of her family. She’s the unhappiest of all. I don’t accept this. Happiness is a state of mind that comes from a right relationship with God. It is a choice, not a career choice.
