Certified Life Planner and Relationship Expert Chanel Dokun shows women how to leave behind the stress and disappointment of a life spent chasing external significance and success and find profound joy and fulfillment in building a new one rooted in living out your unique purpose.
Women are drowning in pursuit of the good life. They chase external markers of success–building enviable careers, pursuing romantic relationships, and crafting the picture-perfect life–in attempts to soothe the aching suspicion that there must be more to life. But their efforts only leave them stressed, lonely, and tired of trying to answer the question: Why isn’t this enough?
Chanel Dokun spent the first half of her life focusing on achieving and attaining the lifestyle she thought she wanted. But she found herself feeling disappointed, disillusioned, and like she’d lost herself while running after a successful life. She realized that the world’s definition of accomplishment was not a true measure of a life well lived, and she needed to redefine success and become the architect of her own life. Through practical strategies, anecdotes from her work coaching women around the country, and therapeutic examination, Chanel Dokun teaches women how to create the life they’ve been waiting for and shares:
*an in-depth look at why society’s definition of significance isn’t the answer in their search for more;
*the hidden reason why they are discontent;
*practical action steps to unlock their genius, find their flair, and discover their unique life purpose; and
*the five postures of silence, solitude, generosity, gratitude, and play that can help them move from striving to thriving.
Life Starts Now shows us that when we release the search for significance and recover a redemptive view of an ordinary life, we can experience profound joy and fulfillment–and embrace the wild wonder of the lives we’ve been given.
