More About This Title Creating Your Own Destiny: How to Get Exactly What You Want Out of Life and Work


Put your own fate exactly where it belongs-in your hands

It is one of the great questions of life. Its a simple question, really, but it seems impossible for many to answer: Do we control our own destinies? 90 percent of people think and act as if their destiny is foreordained, while only about 10 percent believe in the capacity to change and act on it.

Creating Your Own Destiny explains and demonstrates to the majority how to dream, plan, and execute a better future-despite the challenges of the economy and life circumstances.
