What others are saying:
“The clarity of Lake’s advice is disconcerting… she asks the simple question: What if success were defined as progress, instead of a result? What if success were defined as not where you end up, but how you live your life every day? What if we stopped keeping our self-praise and self-esteem building blocks for special occasions, like your mother’s good china, and let it out every day? [Chapter 4 – The Good China Syndrome] …I’ve read the weird and the wonderful, the odd and the inspiring…but I can say definitively that I have not read a self-help guide so down-to-earth. I will stop here, and recommend her!” – Lori Dunn, ReaderReviews

is headed. The book is well written and will cause you to rethink your life.
The suggestions and ideas are worth contemplating and if you can seriously
put them into practice I feel they can be pretty effective. The book is also easy to
read and most of the advice is practical which will actually help you change. I liked
the idea of dissociating Goals with happiness and self worth, I think we can live
more happily and peacefully. Its a good book, definitely recommended for anyone
who wants to make some positive changes in his/her life.
