Do you know what your inner gold looks like? Have you looked deep within your heart to know the path you are on is the right one? Do you have goals in place to help find and reach that inner gold?

If you ever had to deal with change in your life, within your personal or you business life, you know that sometimes
change can suck! How did you deal with it? Most of us don’t deal with change very well. We tend to become complacent and like things as they are, as the old adage goes ‘Why change it if it ain’t broke!’ Unfortunately life can
sometimes have a way of changing things for you and it is that which I hope this book will help you through.

My life changed drastically a number of times with a few major changes and challenges, those being a move to the other side of the world and then again with what I thought at the time was a devastating diagnosis of a chronic illness. Compound the chronic illness with a cancer scare with major life changing surgery and you start to look at life a bit differently. So how did I deal with these changes and how did I find my inner gold are two of the questions I get asked the most when I am speaking to people.

If you are someone who struggles with setting goals and coping with change, it doesn’t have to be a major event like mine but even the smaller things such as a new job or boss at work, then this book will give you some insight into how I challenge myself and deal with the changes in my life. It will also give you some strategies on how to cope with change and your mindset.

If you are struggling with finding that inner gold or lack the courage to try something new, wondering how I channel a winning mindset, interested in overcoming hurdles or how to celebrate your success then just go to that chapter on that topic. There is no right or wrong way to read this book.

I wrote this book because I have been able to find my inner gold and always seemed to be able to overcome challenges. It hasn’t been easy but I have worked out ways to accept that change happens, get through the difficulties, find the courage to change, learn how to grow through the changes and have powerful belief in myself. At times I couldn’t understand why everyone wasn’t the same, why people were so scared of going after what they wanted and dealing with change.

I hope that when you read my thoughts and strategies told through stories in my life that you will understand that you don’t have to be scared of your dreams, goals and change. That even though we may be fearful of attempting things or dealing with change we can eventually have amazing and
wonderful outcomes.

Take the plunge, challenge yourself and you may actually find a new you, one who is brave and fearless, ready to take on anything the world has to throw at you.
