Lucinda Cross, Activate! Dynamic Transitions and Powerful Transformations
We’ve all been there at that make it or break it moment in our lives.That moment where it seems as if time stops and the world is spinning, but you are not moving.You have a decision to make. You have an obstacle in front of you that you did not expect or did not suspect it to be.
Maybe you haven’t attained the success you feel your hard work should have brought you by now or maybe you feel you have the talent to be all that you can be, be the expert in your field, but you just can’t seem to put that talent or those skills into position to be useful when it really counts.
Maybe just maybe you feel your potential or this gift you have just isn’t being tapped and you have no clue what’s missing or what’s holding you back.
You are keen on not wasting any more time wallowing in the self- pity party. You’re not interested in looking back into your childhood; you simply want to move forward. You don’t want to be sabotaged by self-doubt any longer. You don’t want to be paralyzed by panic or fear. You want a goal that will tap your full potential and you want courage and determination to go after that vision, no matter how unrealistic, out of your mind it may seem to others, no matter how much heat you have to endure, no matter how many setbacks you have
to fight to overcome.
You are in full pursuit of success and happiness.
We are all fighting this fight on a daily basis.
This book can help. This book will help. It encapsulates a program that transformed people in all walks of life. I have been on a mission to bring out peoples best, no matter what they did in the past or what they do for a living.
I learned that my market, my audience lacked self-confidence, feared the unknown, terrified of failure, couldn’t focus or concentrate, they were fear paralyzed and mistakes from their past hindered them.
In writing this book and crafting the program that is the next step after reading is designed to help each reader to overcome these obstacles in 5 major areas.
The information provided in this book is about creating the future, not trying to erase the past; about uplifting, inspiring and empowering you to make lasting changes, not excuses for what has already happened.
Whatever success you envision, whatever you are called to do, whatever goal you set for yourself, I want you to see it as your choice and chance to make a difference in your life and the lives of others.My job in these pages is to empower you to make the decisions you deem necessary to achieve your goals and live your best life, the best way you know how.
To be empowered and activated, one must also be inspired. To that end I’ve included my story of change on my personal Road To Redemption.
No journey can begin, no route can be plotted, and no mission can be accomplished without you taking the first step to make a decision.
What are your intentions in reading this book?
What do you hope to gain?
Where do you stand in your life right now?
You can clearly add your own journey and road map on your Road To Redemption. You can do this; you
can change your portion of the people in the world. I will support you to get you through it. I will talk you through it, but you must be ready to meet me at the start line.
