Find Your Life’s Work by Listening to Your Mind & Soul ~ Excerpt of Review by Kara Lane
The guide offers practical tips for figuring out WHAT we want to do and then HOW to go about doing it. The “what” includes exercises and questions to help us uncover our passions. The “how” helps us discover how to succeed – for example, by doing our homework to figure out what knowledge and skills we need for our chosen career.
My favorite chapter was the one called “You Are What You Think.” The philosophy expressed there reminded me of one of my all-time favorite books, James Allen’s “As a Man Thinketh”. Millen talks about limiting beliefs, gratitude, and counting our achievements. As a perfectionist, I especially liked the way she challenges her fear of action. She asks herself, “Why not try?” or “It doesn’t have to be perfect – you can correct and improve. It’s time to act.”

Excerpt – A Shift toward Purpose: Secrets to an Amazing Career
If you are unhappy with your work right now, whether you are in your twenties or your fifties, stop blaming yourself for making the wrong choices that led you here. You made the best choices you had at the time considering the awareness, knowledge and understanding you had before.
You cannot change your past but you can change the direction of your life now if you choose to trust your ‘gut.’ You are well equipped with your mind and your soul – your intuition, your talents, and your aspirations – to have a meaningful, successful and authentic life.
The mind’s perspective is practical, rational and grounded, which is very important as long as it doesn’t limit or paralyze you with fear and indecision. The soul’s perspective is expansive, exciting and positive. However, choosing only the soul’s perspective may leave you ungrounded and disillusioned at best.
In my opinion, the solution to a happy and successful life is balance. Try not to spend too much time focusing only on your rational mind but also do not get carried away just by your soul’s desires. Strive for balance. Neale Donald Walsch wrote in one of his inspirational emails that “The mind and the soul must work together if you are to experience true bliss.”
If you want to have a meaningful and gratifying career, if you want to find your heartfelt purpose in life and experience peace, you must be aware of the duality of your existence (physical and spiritual) and nourish and strengthen both – your mind and your soul.
It is my intention in this book to inspire your beautiful and genuine self to trust yourself and your intuition, to recover your self-confidence and self-reliance. I want you to love yourself enough to work through your fear of change and the unknown, to clear and release your emotional blockages and activate your creative potential.
I would be delighted if the messages in this book resonate with you. I would love to be able to assist you in making a shift toward a life blessed with meaning, faith, purpose and contentment. It is my joy and honor to offer guidance to women seeking authentic self-expression and ways to be their best and serve the world best. I admire you and am proud of you for having the courage to choose yourself and follow your gut.
