From the Jacket

praise for Amazing Things Will Happen

"For people who want to make a leap into a new kind of career but just can't quite make the jump, C.C. Chapman offers practical advice, real-life examples, and thoughtful, realistic encouragement that will allow them to dare to do amazing things."
—Gretchen Rubin, author of Happier at Home and The Happiness Project

"This book is a field manual for living life with passion and gusto. Read it only if you're prepared for amazing things!"
—Chris Guillebeau, author of The $100 Startup

This book is not a how-to manual for life. It doesn't deliver a step-by-step approach that you execute in order to achieve an amazing life. Rather, it offers a collection of thoughts and inspiration that will get you up and guide you on a journey toward a more fulfilling life. Amazing Things Will Happen??shows how others got it done and gives you the inspiration to chase your dreams. You'll be empowered to:

  • Cope with the situation you are currently in and make the most of it until you can break free
  • Define your goals and set out realistic tasks to reach them
  • Navigate the sea of doubters and obstacles to get to where you want to be
  • Be happier, satisfied, and more rewarded by the life you choose to lead
