Experience may be the best teacher, but it takes time, and life is impatient.
Imagine if you could add to your own experience the lessons learned by those who came back from the worst moments in their lives. In Your New Fighting Stance, Steve Piacente mines the details of 15 personal vignettes to craft a nine-step plan that encourages and challenges readers to stretch toward the life they’ve always wanted.
As one example, Piacente recommends speaking up in the workplace, but doing so mindfully and strategically. “Too often we play it safe by staying quiet,” he says. “The cost for staying silent is also high. When it comes to alleged job security, remember that golden handcuffs are still handcuffs.”
“My clients and the people interviewed for this book all have one thing in common,” Piacente says. “They’ve committed to refocusing their energy from the job, the email, and all the screens we’ve allowed to become so important, to something bigger and better. They’ve decided good enough is no longer enough, and are doing something about it.”
