What is it about?
Here’s the book description from Amazon:
How can we live the lives we dream of? Everyone wants to live a meaningful, extraordinary life, but many people are paralyzed by daily responsibilities. The habitual thinking of a lifetime doesn’t always make room for living your life larger. In Living Big, author Pam Grout teaches readers how to shift their attitudes, seize the day, and grow into the people they were meant to be. By thinking BIG, dreaming BIG, and asking BIG questions, each of us has the ability to make a difference in our lives and in the world.
Living Big profiles people who are living fully and completely. In these everyday heroes and heroines, we not only recognize our own potential but learn how to create our own big lives. Chapters conclude with three soul-searching questions and a section called “Boot Camp for the Soul,” which includes actual practices readers can undertake to start Living Big now!
