As it says on the back of the Power of Small book if you are feeling overwhelmed then this book is for you.
Rather than waiting for the big life-changing moments, which more often than not don’t happen, The Power of Small shows you how to take manageable steps as opportunities to change your life, one decision at a time — emphasising self-compassion as a means to gently expand your comfort zone and open up new horizons.
If your mind tells you that certain life changes are unattainable, undeserved, or too hot to handle, this simple and effective book is the one for you.
This book is simply universal. It might be of great help for everyone, because even if you think you have it all and you are having a great life, there is always something that can be improved.
Forget about changing your life drastically overnight, it takes time, strong will and patience. Aisling and Trish are both psychologists and they are providing useful tips from their practice to us to help us achieve our goals and assure as that, step by step we can change and get rid of our old habits/visions.
In The Power of Small you can find the latest psychological research which I find interesting and many personal stories that show us we all have our downsides in life and we all struggle with different areas in our life. Nothing is ever as perfect and glamorous as what people share on their social media. Being able to read about others people stories helps us to understand the journey we have to take to improve the quality of the life we have.
The Power of Small is about making small steps, tiny changes in our routine, that’s the only way we can achieve results that will last in the future. New Year New Me isn’t working for us, every day we have to take a step or two to get close to the life we want to have but we cannot expect that we will wake the next day and we will be someone else, it takes time and perseverance.
Aisling and Trish have simply created a guide for these days in our life, when as it says in the tagline of the book When Everything Feels Too Much. They even might help you find your inner core values that sometimes stay hidden from us. All you have to do is to take a journal, a pen and follow their advice.
