Emotional Stimulus Package: Your Guide to Re-creating the American Dream is a self-improvement book for the millions of Americans whose lives have been shattered by the economic crisis. The book guides the reader through seven stages of grief as they relate to the emotional impact brought on by significant life changes. It is not an academic book but rather a reflective journey about choice and change. From real stories and pertinent questions, readers will be able to identify their current stage of grief, understand how to move through the grieving process, pick up their lives again and rediscover their core values with renewed optimism.
Readers will benefit from a step-by-step process including helpful exercises as well as a blueprint for moving forward and re-creating their new version of the American Dream. The six authors share many of their own life experiences in the book as well as their professional expertise as health and life coaches.
In each chapter, you will find a story – some excruciatingly personal, some that may truly resonate with your pain, or some that simply resemble the situation of someone you know. The stories in Emotional Stimulus Package are real stories about real people. You may be able to relate to one or more of these stories and benefit from the ways the individuals worked through their unplanned and unwelcome crises.
The authors’ objective in this book is to help people deal with their emotional struggle and move toward recreating their dream. Parallels are drawn with the stages of grief. By way of the stories, questions and exercises throughout the book, you will acquire tools and knowledge to help you on your journey.
Each author brings her own life experience and story of survival. With this collection of stories, it is their hope that you will find valuable pearls to relate to your own situation. It is their passion to provide information, guidance and methods that uniquely address your needs.
Are you ready for a change in your attitude and outlook? Ready to turn the corner and see what is there for you? What are the benefits of getting your life back in order? Imagine for a moment how different your life could be if you had the tools and the encouragement to take one step at a time down the road to the recovery of your American Dream.
