Return to Book Page. All of us have dreams about what we’d like to do, who we’d like to be and where we’d like to go in life. But most of us are never able to make these dreams a reality. Now, in this highly motivating new book, Fiona Harrold uses her experience as a life coach to show us that we can turn our own lives around. With encouragement, humour and an emphasis on the practical, Fiona All of us have dreams about what we’d like to do, who we’d like to be and where we’d like to go in life.
With encouragement, humour and an emphasis on the practical, Fiona sets out the 10 steps to taking control of our lives. First we must set our goals, however crazy they may seem; then we must start on the path to achieving them. Along the way, Fiona uses case studies, affirmations and motivational techniques to keep us going, coaching her readers in the same way that she would her personal clients.
Helping you in all areas – personal and professional – this book will be your most valuable guide to being the most that you can be.

I found them useful, and Harrold’s words inspiring. I mean, I balked at some suggestions. Harrold asks, “Why not make an altar to yourself? First the neoliberali Hooo boy. Too many people believe that it is acceptable and even their right to depend on the state to support them.
When we begin to depend on institutions and outside help to support us then we destroy our potential for success and fulfilment. Today things are changing, as successive governments in both Britain and the USA are recognising the massive deficiencies of the welfare state and are putting policies in place to force people back to relying on their own resources.
Families have rallied round, jobs have been found, people have fallen back on their own resources and found solutions.
And do some research on the fight for coacn living minimum wage and functional homelessness. Then Harrold started on health. Trust your own instinct. It may be that what you need is rest, a change of scene, a decision or a fresh start. If a job, a house or a ciach is making you ill, move away from it. Use the vast array of complementary health practitioners to support you in making and keeping yourself well. Try homoeopathy, reflexology, Tibetan healing, shiatsu massage, cranial osteopathy, acupuncture, naturopathy, herbalism or kinesieology.

Be Your Own Life Coach by Fiona Harrold
Trust yourself to know what you need, find people you like and trust to help you heal and never accept that any condition is beyond help. Cooach, sure, as long as that message propii, “Don’t drink the water containing Enterobius vermicularis,” or ‘Don’t accidentally lick rat urine ,” or even, “I’m so sorry you had shitty luck with your genes.
The statement “never accept that any condition is beyond help,” is not useful. Medical science, my friends. It can literally cure cancer. And sometimes it can’t and people die and that is a thing that happens too and denying the reality of it giona not give you a satisfactory end of life experience.
So anyway, here I am at the end of the book not knowing if I should average it flona 3, give a 5 for all the useful stuff, or delete it from my Kindle forever.
I guess the first option? View all 8 comments. Jan 24, Carrie rated it really liked it. I’m not usually enthusiastic about self-help books and suchlike, but I am enthusiastic about this one.
Se Tu Propio Coach : Y Mejora Tu Vida
Unlike many others, it does not assume that its readers’ lives are iin ruins to begin with. It merely offers cosntructive advice. Mar 01, Sue rated it did not like it Shelves: The author begins by telling us that her father was a big believer in the self-help, positive psychology movement.
She absorbed those beliefs from him and wants to pass them on to us in this book. Of course the two things are completely different. She spent years being encouraged and influenced by her father on a one to one basis, learning the techniques and language of self-development as they applied to her life.
She then went on to study with other experts, absorbing their wisdom over time. B The author begins by telling us that her father was a big believer in the self-help, positive psychology movement.
But now she wants to teach all of this in one book which is supposed to apply to hundreds, perhaps thousands of people. She uses huge generalisations, such as describing smoking as “a habit which is always associated with low self-esteem. She also uses a large number of case studies.
Unfortunately, case studies are often used as a way to fill up space in a poorly written book. Perhaps the author feels that the reader is too stupid to understand the theory unless it is explained by its application to one person’s life.
I would argue instead that, if the theory is explained clearly enough, the reader would understand it without these examples. She also states things which might well be relevant for her professional one to one coaching but which make no sense in the context of a book. For example, in a section called ‘What I Will Do For You’ she says “I will believe in you totally and demonstrate my belief by taking you and your desires seriously”.
In the one-way transaction of the reader reading the book, this is clearly not possible!. Or how about “I’m not going to be soft on you. I want action, not excuses. And this is all just in Chapter One!
Chapter 2 could be summarised in the phrase ‘Fake it until you make it’. Now this is something I personally do not believe in. I don’t think it works and I think it can be extremely stressful to attempt it, with longer-term negative consequences. That’s just my personal opinion. That might seem like splitting hairs, but to me this is one more example of how unrealistic this book is. Chapter 3 is about self-worth.
They are also more loving and forgiving. People are much more complex than this, and there are many factors that go towards whether someone is creative, or loving, or anything else come to that! She also makes quite controversial statements about Western religion yes, all of it! To be fair, she does suggest volunteering and charity work as a way to feel better about yourself, and she also has some useful tips on how to stop beating yourself up for old mistakes, both of which I found myself agreeing with.
In Chapter 4 she covers self-reliance.
To develop this you should be your own best friend. Not in my experience. Some people do, but not most of the people I know. This is another example of sloppy writing with no basis in facts. There are no references in the book, no research, just her personal beliefs. Does she know every single reader of this book and whether their evaluation of themselves is right? This is just a feel-better puff-piece of a sentence that actually means nothing.
And that sums up for me what this book is all about. She went through a bad time herself – her father died, she lived in a squat with political activists, she got ill and depressed.
Now she has turned her life around, or so she says, and she is full of advice for how other people can do the same. You want to be more attractive? Just believe that you are. Just believe that you are young then. At the end of the book she promotes her own courses. Jun 01, Patty rated it did not like it Shelves: I tried really hard to get something from this book. Might work well for those that like exercises that promise to get you somewhere but seem repetitive and pointless.
