The Success Mindset

The Success Mindset: Take back the leadership of your mind
by Paola Knecht

book cover: The Success Mindset: Take back the leadership of your mind by Paola KnechtSome call it the ‘mid-life crisis’; I prefer to call it the confrontation to reality crisis. It’s the moment you feel you wake from a dream, and half your life already passed by. And yet, you don´t know who you are yet. You feel your life is lacking passion and meaning. Does this sound like you?

With this book, I want to make you a proposition and set you a challenge for change: How about starting to look for success inwards? To be part of those who silently build human societies that are less focused on a targeted external success.Learn how to define success as coming back to the joy of being who you want to be, and doing what you want to do? In this book, I will share with you eleven pillars to untap the higher Self that habits within you, and which longs to have an extraordinary life, the life you were born to live.
