Ready, Set, Achieve! : A Guide to Taking Charge of Your Life, Creating Balance and Achieving Your Goals
about this item
When charging after a goal, most people act like a bull in an arena, focusing solely on the swinging red flag in the bullfighter’s hands and forgetting about the rest of the surrounding area and neighboring responsibilities.Ready, Set, Achieve! presents an organized guide to turning a dream into reality without sacrificing achievements in other areas of life. Studies have shown that personal health directly affects professional well-being and vice versa. As one decreases, the other suffers. Conversely, as one increases, the other rises as well. By learning how to effectively and evenly pull the strings of both aspects of life and avoiding a collision of priorities, all goals can be reached with less stress and better health. Ready, Set, Achieve! digs into the psyche of setting a goal, creating a plan of action, carrying out those action steps, finding support systems, and cycling back around to do it all over again or a new and higher goal.Personal anecdotes from authors Yuri Diogenes and Jodi Miller punctuate each chapter and give an inside view into overcoming their own real-life struggles and turning them into tangible success stories. Both authors rely on real-life experience to shed light on how to transform one’s mind and body and still create balance. Diogenes shares the tale of his amazing 100-pound weight loss and subsequent appearance on a national-qualifying bodybuilding stage in one of the biggest states in the country while rising to the top ranks in his IT career. And Miller describes her feat of lifting almost three times her bodyweight at national- and world-level lifting championships while remaining well-rounded in both her athletic and career worlds.Ready, Set, Achieve! shows the road to just that: your best.
