Find Your Strongest Life by Marcus Buckingham... a Review!

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 how they really can have it all . . . the right kind of all.

Find Your Strongest Life is filled with stories of women, their lives and how they changed their lives to be less stressful and more fulfilling. Each chapter has a wrap-up at the end to recap the most important points. Part One of the book looks at what gets in the way of our true calling with chapter titles such as The Female Paradox: what trap has life set and Of Choice and Men: what gets in the way of your happiness, Part Two shows us what to look for to find ourselves with chapter titles such as Signs of Life: what does a strong life actually feel like and Accept what you find: How can you honor what is true about you, and Part Three is Strong Life Tactics, with tactics for stronger relationships, kids, and career.

It's like a workshop in your hands to look at yourself in relationship to the world around you and to see if you like it, and change the negative points into positive.

Do you know your "soul's code"? Are you an Advisor or a Caretaker? A Creator or an Equalizer? What makes your heart sing? Take the Strong Life Test and see where you fit in! Would you like to read an excerpt from the book? Here's a link to the first chapter! And visit to learn more about the book, WATCH the video! where women talk about finding the meaning in their lives and Marcus explaining a bit about why his book can help! and learn about author Marcus Buckingham!

I found the book inspiring and easy to read! Even if you aren't the "self-help" type reader, but just a woman feeling in a crossroads, or even curious as to what your choices tell about you, you should enjoy this book. I reviewed this book for Thomas Nelson Books, but want to sincerely thank them for the opportunity to read this!
