Millions of adults are disillusioned, disappointed, and even despairing about the way their life has turned out. They may have worked hard and done what they were supposed to do, but the rewards they expected aren't there for them. Others may have made major mistakes and fear they will continue to be held back by them for the rest of their lives. Many find themselves living the lives that other people have designed for them or lives they have just drifted into. All of us have dreams we have let go of, hopes we think we can't realize, or plans that have fizzled out. Not only are we missing out on our dreams, but the world is missing the gifts we might have provided.
In It's Not Too Late, Dr. Fuentes provides a simple step-by-step guide to creating the life we were truly meant to live. This book shows us how to resurrect our lost or "impossible" dreams, step onto a path of our own choosing, and succeed in achieving our most treasured goals.
Using the Vision/Strategy/Action model that was so successful with her students, Dr. Fuentes helps readers to identify their hidden wishes and hopes and to understand why they have not yet come to fruition. She leads them in an exploration of their goals and shows them how to turn seeming obstacles into steppingstones. Then she gently helps them into those first crucial steps of making their dream a reality.
