About the Book

If you’re encountering this book, it may be because you’re meant to be with it at this time in your life, that there’s something here you’re supposed to hear and do. The book is written in that spirit, as if certain words on these pages can invigorate your Actualization mindset, and propel you further upward on your Actualizing journey.

Actualizing is unfolding and cultivating our human potentials, and becoming more fully-functioning human beings at the levels of mind, body, heart, spirit, and relationship. This volume is fi lled with more than seven hundred mindset messages, mindfulness reminders, visualizations, affi rmations, quotes, refl ections, questions, and exercises. Nuggets here can support and jumpstart your Actualizing adventure, the one you’ve been on your whole life, and that you’re now wanting to take to the next level.

You’ll dip into this volume to get motivated, focused, and energized. You’ll become steeped in self-awareness, relaxation of body and mind, interpersonal communication, fi nding authentic voice, generative dialogue, high quality listening, intentionality, affi rmation, visualization, present-centeredness, and balance and wholeness. A few minutes each day, and your Actualizing process is accelerated.
