How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life

For Anyone Looking for Success, Fulfillment, and a Fresh Start!

Most of the millions of Americans looking for work will eventually find jobs in different companies, if not different fields, than the ones they got laid off from. Many people in their sixties worry about not being able to afford to retire, but dread being stuck in the same job, company, or field for ten or more years. While success expert Brian Tracy understands that these scenarios can cause great anxiety, he also sees them as opportunities to think about the future, respond to the challenges of change, and seize the second chance to ask and answer the question, “What do I really want to do with my life?”

In REINVENTION: How to Make the Rest of Your Life the Best of Your Life (AMACOM 2009), Tracy takes anyone at a turning point through a step-by-step process of adapting, adjusting, and attaining unprecedented satisfaction. He draws on psychological theories, management practices, and inspiring personal examples, including his own ongoing reinvention story. At age 21, while toiling in construction with little education or training for anything, Tracy had a revelation that changed his life. “I realized that I was responsible for myself and for everything that happened to me,” he recalls. “At that moment, I decided to put my past behind me and reinvent myself for the first time.” Over the years, Tracy has reinvented himself in different industries to eventually becoming one of the world’s most successful authors and speakers on personal and professional development.

REINVENTION features Tracy’s trademark combination of practical tactics, motivational incentives, and encouragement. Anyone seeking fulfillment and a fresh start will find proven strategies and invaluable advice on:

- Moving forward in a world of turbulence by mastering seven critical thinking skills: reevaluating, rethinking, reorganizing, restructuring, reengineering, reinventing, and regaining control after an unexpected setback.

- Calling a time-out from turmoil and stress to invest in a thorough internal examination to gain self-awareness, the basic requirement of self-acceptance and self-esteem.

- Creating a “five-year fantasy” for your career and life and then practice “back from the future thinking,” mapping out the moves and filling in the gaps needed to make it a reality.

- Determining your worth, in terms of financial compensation and intangibles like respect, by assessing your assets and then positioning and branding yourself for success.

- Getting the job you want—in any economy—by making it your business to understand the job market, along with updating obsolete skills, developing in-demand qualities, networking, preparing for interviews thoroughly in advance, and thinking of yourself as self-employed.

An internationally recognized leader in motivation and empowerment, Tracy works with Fortune 500 companies and addresses more than 250,000 people a year, and is the author of many books, including Speak to Win and Focal Point. REINVENTION is certain to appeal to people of all professions, levels, and backgrounds eager to embark on new career paths for the promise of more rewarding lives.
