Having trouble getting started with your goals? Can’t seem to get it in gear to build the business, create the service, learn the skill or write the book you know will make a difference? Motivational speaker and accountant Onyx Jones can help.
She knows a little something about change and growth. Once a homeless single mother, Jones now has a master’s degree in accounting and is a motivational speaker.
She’s turned the latter into a book called “The Unofficial Guide to Achieving Your Goals,” which is this week’s giveaway.
“(After) committing to following all seven steps, you will see improvement in your quality of life in just 30 to 90 days,” says Jones.
This slim paperback (66 pages) is designed to “motivate, inspire and provide you with tools for achieving your goals and living a life of passion.” And those seven steps mentioned above? If you’re not the kind of person who likes to follow directions, maybe this book isn’t for you.
(Or maybe you should think inside the box for a change, you crazy maverick, you. What could it hurt?)
Jones requires you to journal your progress or to communicate regularly with a “goals partner.” You’ll also find yourself reading other books, making lists, and meditating/communicating with God (or a higher power).
Those of you who crave structure, or who just need a jump-start, should find this guide quite user-friendly. In concrete and encouraging ways, Jones urges you to live the best possible version of you.
“The world has enough room for your success, my success and the success of everyone else who chooses to operate in a life filled with purpose and goals,” she says.
