Live Your Life of Abundance by Margo Spilde is an enlightening self-help book. It guides readers through exercises that focus on identifying and accomplishing goals. The author compares going through life without clear goals to driving aimlessly to find a place for vacation. You normally would plan out your vacation ahead of time to determine where you will go and where you will stay to make the best use of your vacation days. You should plan your life the same way. Identify your goals and plan out what you need to do to achieve them. If you do not have a specific goal, the author includes exercises to identify what you like to do and what you hate to do. By making these types of lists, you can begin to form a plan for how you would like to spend your time.
The author stresses the importance of keeping a journal. She provides a journal and other free resources on her website that are available for readers to download. The exercises in the book guide readers through ways to shape their futures to create lives of abundance. To create a path to achieving goals, readers must be honest with themselves when identifying what steps need to be taken to find fulfillment. The book also discusses the financial aspects of living in abundance. The author explains the significance of real estate and passive income. She stresses the importance of choice and that not every person fits into the same mold. People should consider what investments work best for them based on their goals and opportunities.
What I liked most about this book is the author’s practical advice for readers. She explains complex topics in a format that is easy to understand. She also uses examples from her life to illustrate various points throughout the book. Her individual experiences help to explain the strategies she advocates for readers to live their best lives. Spilde expresses a genuine interest in helping people to succeed in reaching their goals. She provides tools in the book and on her website to assist readers. There was nothing that I disliked about this book.
I found the concept of journaling to be a helpful tool in identifying goals and creating a path to success. I had never journaled before reading this book. I did not see the benefit of writing things down for myself in that way. At specific points in the book, the author directs readers to write a list or describe something in the journal. As I completed these exercises, my goals became clearer. Also, my interests, likes, and dislikes became clearer to me. The book repeatedly stresses the importance of journaling and, after engaging in the exercises presented in the book, I understand the importance of writing down thoughts and plans to keep focused on goals. I will continue this process in my personal life.
I highly recommend this book to readers with an interest in achieving their goals and living a life of abundance. The author is very encouraging throughout the book and provides helpful advice. The book will also appeal to readers who do not have a specific goal because it walks readers through simple exercises to create goals. I believe it was professionally edited because I saw only one error in the entire book. I give this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I would not give it a lower rating because it is beautifully written and provides practical advice for readers with an interest in changing their lives for the better.
