Or, have your own frustrations or negativity worn you out and cast a shadow over your life? Do you ever feel  overwhelmed by negative people or toxic situations? Do you have friendships or relationships that are holding you back or dragging your down? Are you planning your escape from an unpleasant situation?

Have you ever felt like a mouse staring at the cheese on a trap? For many people, life feels like a mousetrap. They see the cheese—the opportunity for a better life—but they are afraid to make a move because they also see the trap—the fear of loss or the possibility of failure, so they hesitate to the point of becoming frozen with inaction. In this book you will discover:

  • The not-so-wise rule.
  • The energy vampires in your life.
  • Benefits of working with a coach and mentor.
  • The most important decision you will ever make.
  • How to be your own hero.

  • The  transformational power of questions.
  • A real recipe for measurable results.
  • The secret to discovering your life purpose.
  • How to turn courage into action.
  • The muscle of forgiveness and gratitude.

Using the playful spin of a mousetrap I share valuable, actionable insights to getting your cheese—accomplishing your goals—without the risks of getting captured by the mousetrap.ORDER NOW
