I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was

In I Could Do Anything If I Only Knew What It Was (review or buy), Barbara Sher explores the idea that the reason we get stuck in our lives is that we simply don't know what we want.  However, says Ms. Sher, there are plenty of clues -- we need simply take a good look at our lives and history, and then begin to move forward.

Live the Life You Love

Barbara Sher begins with the premise that each of us is a one-of-a-kind person, and that we will only be happy when we learn to use our gifts.  In Live the Life You Love (review or buy), Ms. Sher combines exercises and encouragement to help the reader uncover his or her passion in life.

It's Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now

In It's Only Too Late If You Don't Start Now (review or buy), Barbara Sher shows how to rediscover the inspired, enthusiastic adventurer you wanted to be before you became the responsible adult you had to be. According to Ms. Sher, it's never too late to start over. In fact, midlife is the perfect time to do so, a time when dreams for the future and experiences of the past finally come together.

Wishcraft

Barbara Sher's Wishcraft (review or buy) offers exercises designed to uncover our individual tastes and talents, and helps us to discard the myths we've been told about ourselves.  Ms. Sher believes that we can stop following other people's dreams and begin seeking for (and finding) what appeals to our true self -- our inner core.

Refuse to Choose!

In Refuse to Choose! (review or buy), Barbara Sher writes about people whom she calls "Scanners." Scanners are different kinds of thinkers with different roadmaps. They can only achieve their best if they do everything they love. According to Barbara, a Scanner's best choice is to ignore convention that forces her to pick and specialize. To truly be happy, she says, Scanners must refuse to choose!
