Author Cassandra Gaisford wants people to realise that whatever age you are or circumstances you’re in, achieving a “Mid-Life Career Rescue” is absolutely possible. She talks about how you can use your age as an advantage, enabling you to increase your confidence and belief in yourself and prepare you for positive change.
Whether you’re in a job you can’t stand, you’ve been made redundant or you feel you have no choice but to stay in a job you don’t like, Cassandra gives simple strategies to discover what you want to do, make it a reality and find the job you love.
She gives some fantastic tips for working out what you do and don’t want to indicate the types of jobs that would give you more satisfaction. Also helpful ways to change the way you feel about the job you’re currently in by shifting from negative self-talk to positive and seeing obstacles as learning experiences.
Cassandra gets you to question how you think and feel about things and gives you action tasks, techniques and quizzes to gain more clarity. What really resonates with me and I also believe is extremely important, is how she encourages meditation and passion journaling throughout the process and believes that by training your mind, shaping your attitude and actively participating in life creates happiness, in addition to doing what you're passionate about.
A fabulous tool for anyone thinking about changing careers or just wanting to be happier in the job you’re in, why you work on building something that you’re truly passionate about.
Mid-Life Career Rescue is the book for anyone who is middle-aged and feeling dissatisfied with their job. The author describes the book as self-empowering, not self-help. I agree.
The author knows of what she speaks. She transformed her own career with these principles and has created a successful practice helping others do the same. Several client success stories are included in this book.
Often people in mid-life feel stuck and unable to change. The author rightly shows that change is possible, and provides a framework and exercises for transformation. Read this book and rescue your own career.
