A simple yet powerful guide to coping with uncertainty and fear.
Allison Carmen spent many years fighting a powerful addiction. It wasn't drugs, or fame, or Candy Crush. It was an addiction to certainty. If she didn't know what the future would bring - and who does? - she felt anxious and afraid. This decades-long struggle followed her through college, marriage, parenthood, and a successful law career. While everything seemed fine from the outside, Allison was in a constant battle that was unwinnable, sapping her energy, attention, and spirit. Until the day she discovered the power of Maybe.
"The Gift of Maybe" is the result of that powerful discovery. It isn't a step-by-step guide, nor is it a "woo-woo" book with ideas that are extreme, or even unfamiliar. Rather, "The Gift of Maybe "presents the simple yet powerful truth that has transformed Allison's life, and the life of her many clients (now that she has ditched her legal career and has become a successful life coach). The message is this: In the face of uncertainty, Maybe opens your mind and heart. It creates a little space for hope. It allows you to take a deep breath, stay in the present, and forge your own path.
Many things in life are beyond our control, but the mindset of Maybe presents a simple, powerful way to stay connected to what's possible, and work to make it happen.
