Book Review: 12 Steps to Health, Wealth, and Joy


12 Steps to Health, Wealth, and Joy: A Guide to Living WellToday I have the pleasure of introducing my client Michelle Farias' book, 12 Steps to Health, Wealth, and Joy: A Guide to Living Well.

This self help book takes readers through steps on how to create a more fulfilling life for themselves. These twelve succinct lessons address ways to make our lives better, whether that's our mental state of mind, or discovering ways to improve our situation.

In addition to her discussions, Farias includes activities that complement each step, so that readers are not just passively reading, but actively working through each step.

One of the first things that struck me about 12 Steps to Health, Weath, and Joy: A Guide to Living Well was how positive and uplifting the messages were. So often we can get bogged down by money, poor relationships, a negative work environment, and so on, and it's easy to both internalize these situations and to feel stuck--that we cannot remove ourselves from these situations. Farias does a superb job of enabling and encouraging readers who are beginning this journey to living a more fulfilling life.

Another thing I absolutely loved about this book was that Farias' deftly showed readers not only how to constructively deal with their current situations, but also how to then progress to an even better lifestyle. What resonated with me was that an individual's state of mind is one of the most crucial aspects of creating the life he or she wants. The journey to living a more fufilling life is just as internal as it is external.

Overall, the book is a fantastic read. If you enjoy being uplifted, having a life coach there to encourage you on, and improving your life, this is a great book to pick up!
