Item description for Changing Lives: Achieving Your Untapped Potential by Michael Giudicissi...
CHANGING LIVES is the ultimate book on human performance and the power of the mind and spirit to change the world. Written in a series of powerful short strokes, the book will hit you like cold water and wake you up to the fact that life is pure opportunity. CHANGING LIVES offers the possibility of joyful evolution: deliberate changes in the body and mind that are undertaken not because something is wrong, but because there is joy in change and growth. Above all, the author stresses the need to take responsibility for your life. No victim consciousness allowed here. Readers are advised to assess the three primary aspects of life: personal, relationship, and career to determine whether they are in balance and, if not, begin to create goals that will bring them into balance.

Motivational speaker and author Michael Giudicissi has written "Changing Lives" to inspire us to live our lives with passion and to challenge us to make more of ourselves. He had been at both ends of the spectrum of having a meaningful life and chose to stop living life as a victim and started living it as a champion. This book is only 91 pages. It is broken up into twenty-one short, concise chapters. It is also written in two parts. The first part covers "Choices" and the second part covers "The Power of Goals."
For the most part, we make decisions and put ourselves in situations where things happen to us. When we start calling our own shots and step outside of the victim role, where we hold other people responsible for our problems, we become in control of our life. Feeding your spirit and your soul and being good to yourself is what brings you true happiness and makes you more effective at making the people around you happy. Focusing on other people usually is a waste of effort, and that time could be better spent focusing on our own growth. To transform ourselves, we also have to be prepared to let go of the past. We also have to decide what parts of ourselves that we are going to give up to make room for the new self. There are three areas of our lives that we need to keep in balance. These are the relationship area, personal area, and career area.
"Changing Lives" has given me a lot of food for thought about how I want to live. I read it in one day, but I plan on going back and reading a chapter a day to really allow me to process what was written. I feel very motivated about making positive changes in my life. I am signed up for my first marathon in July. Before I read Giudicissi's motivational words, I have said, "I am going to try to do a marathon in July." Now that I have finished his book, I am saying, "I will be doing a marathon in July!" Changing my words has actually made me feel stronger and more motivated about what I am going to do. I highly recommend "Changing Lives" for people who have decided that they are ready to make some positive changes in their lives. It is definitely a keeper.
The Power of Goals Oct 12, 2006
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking to take their life to the next level. Too often we sit back and let life happen. After reading this book there is no way you can let life pass you by. It is easy to read and gives you an easy to follow plan for achieving your goals. It has inspired me and I know it will inspire you also.
Excellent self coaching tool Jul 8, 2006
As an executive you have to always deal with changing situations. Constant change is not really a bad thing but it can often cause you to lose site of your goals. This book helps you formulate ways to still reach your goals no matter the path you take. The read is not exclusively "how to" self help book, rather it is a combination of "how to" and a collection of stories that encurage you to draw your own conclusions which helps you to draw a path that suits you to achieve your own personal or proffesional goals.
A Simple Plan Jul 6, 2006
Changing Lives was written by a former highschool classmate of mine, and I read it because I was curious as to what he'd been up to for the last 20 years or so. I quickly became engrossed, and intrigued. Could these simple steps really work for me? I've never been into that New Age, self-help stuff, but this was different. I recently began homeschooling my children, so I had a real goal in mind when I began Michael's plan. I can honestly say that within days, I began to have more confidence in myself and my ability to teach my children. I was on a roll! Just these few simple ideas took away my hesitancy and doubt. I was fortunate to attend one of his seminars and now apply his 'Power of Goals' plan to so many areas. And if you are an athlete, this is the book for you! I was amazed how Michael transformed himself from the kid I knew into an Ironman Triathlete. Pure inspiration! So buy it, read it, use the ideas and PASS IT ON!
Good Shot of Confidence Jun 30, 2006
I am not someone who spends too much time in the self-help section of bookstores... I don't see the value in the mantra-driven psycho-babble crap that is so readily available...
However, I picked up a copy of Changing Lives. Mainly because the cover caught my eye. Before I knew it, I was on page 30, and had to buy the book. I have read it three times. It is always inspirational, and always helps me tap my potential.
