Reviewed by Leslie Granier for Reader Views (7/08)
Written by a life and business coach, "30 Days to a New You" offers ways to help individuals make changes in their lives through the use of positive thinking. The reader is taught how to achieve the `Big' picture (his wants and desires) through the use of the `Small' picture (goals to be met in order to achieve the `Big' picture). The author stresses the importance of taking small steps to reach one's dreams while constantly reevaluating along the way. It is important to celebrate the successes, but not to punish oneself over the failure to complete a goal. Instead, reassessment of the goal or the methods utilized in the attempt to achieve it should be done.
Each chapter contains exercises that challenge the reader to think about how his everyday life, his work life, and relationships will change as he makes changes in himself. Many of the exercises build upon what was learned in earlier chapters, so it is important not to skip around in an effort to finish faster.
Magnetti makes many excellent suggestions on how to change one's life, but two points really stood out for me. First, you are responsible for your own happiness. Only you can change what you don't like, so do not be misled in thinking if other people change you will be happier. The second point deals with the language we use. The small change from saying "I need to" or "I should" to "I want to" reminds you that you are in control and increases your motivation to achieve.
"30 Days to a New You" by Monica Magnetti is an excellent resource for anyone interested in making changes in his life. The exercises force the reader to be honest with him or herself and to take charge of their own life by recognizing that they alone are responsible for how their life unfolds. Discussing one's desires and goals in small groups would be beneficial as each member could provide support for the others and share their experiences through the process of making life changes. The author's positive attitude and excellent motivational skills will inspire even those most fearful of making important changes for their futures.
