In Choose to THRIVE, Debbie Luxton, a retreat leader and life coach for professional women, as well as a John Maxwell Team, founding partner and certified leadership coach shares transparently about common struggles that plague high-achieving women. Women who have reached achieved successes in their lives but at some point, find themselves asking, “is this all there is?” Messages from the voices in our heads, media and society, keep us in a place of trying to be all things to all people. These messages, combined with our strong desire to make a positive impact and add value to peoples lives keeps the struggles of perfectionism and control alive and well. High-achieving women have so much to offer. But, our many strengths can also become our greatest weaknesses. Debbie steps out in courage, using personal stories to help women identify with their own struggles of perfectionism, masks, imposter-syndrome and more. Debbie understands the paradox of being a strong woman, yet the many fears that can be hidden deep within. Fears and inner conflicts that keep high-achieving women from living with true inner peace and joy; that which they long for the most. You will be challenged to look at many common characteristics of your high-achieving nature and apply actions to live your thriving life. ~~~ “We’re not meant to travel our journeys alone. - Dearest Debbie, thank you for coming alongside us, unashamedly sharing your struggles and successes to help us cast off any burdens that hold us back and live our lives to the fullest. Your warm, honest, compassionate, and encouraging message will uplift each and every woman who reads this remarkable book. I love your proclamation: Thriving isn’t about more pressure; it’s about an honest walk with God that takes us to incredible heights as high-achieving women. Let's walk that walk together, ladies. Debbie, I'm honored to walk that walk with you!” Jory H. Fisher, JD, PCC Jory Fisher & Associates, Inc., Certified Master Christian Coach, Certified Business Coach & Startup Expert ~~~ As a Business Consultant, I have seen firsthand the type of wonder woman Debbie is describing. And super women like these, aren’t easy people to reach; but Debbie has this grab your hand, ‘I’ve-been-there’ manner that invites and calms the female independent nature. It’s fun to listen to her real and raw life experiences as she weaves the power of spirit, motivation, and remedies into her teachings. Her fervor and love for the woman suffering in this role is genuine and life-changing. Lisa Frederickson Business Consultant, Focus Seven Consulting ~~~ There were several things that really touched me in "Choose to THRIVE". Debbie’s honesty in sharing her personal struggles because it can be hard to be honest with ourselves. Debbie talks about living by our own values and not the values of others, the importance of having a grateful heart, embracing authentic community to overcome our loneliness and the importance of self-care to bring about the transformation we are in need of. Just like my garden…if I want my plants to Thrive I must give them care. I must be aware of the temperature, water, humidity, nourishment, pests, etc. Why would we think that we as people would be any different? I highly recommend this book.
