There are a slew of self-help books out there today focused on finding your purpose, but Just Tell Me What I Want: How to Find Your Purpose When You Have No Idea What It Is, written by Sara Kravitz, is not just another one that will get lost in the melee. In fact, Kravitz as a life coach and author takes a very different stance, and it's about time more life coaches stop pushing the concepts of "follow your bliss," just be grateful and "do what you love and the money will follow." Just Tell Me What I Want homes in on the dark side of people's selves and helps them reveal what they really want by taking that deep, dark dive. At the end of each chapter, Sara Kravitz includes a "something to try" exercise to help readers implement what they are reading and take action.
Certainly not your run of the mill self-help book, but readers and those interested in personal growth, who are tired of "everything will be okay if you just follow your bliss" should read Just Tell Me What I Want: How to Find Your Purpose When You Have No Idea What It Is. Sara Kravitz's ideas aren't new, per se, but she comes at the concept of personal growth, finding one's true purpose in life, and living a life that has meaning, from a different angle than most. Readers who consume and implement Kravitz's message will discover their own deep, dark secrets - perhaps even ones they hide from themselves. With that knowledge, they will be able to get a better handle on what they want in life and they can stop asking someone else to tell them what they want. Bravo!
