A game-changing book offering a six-step approach on how to find and follow your true calling and redefine success from entrepreneur and soul coach Rha Goddess.
Are you willing to believe in you?
Every single one of us has a calling.
For most it’s the thing you have to force yourself not to do.
When you try to ignore it, you can’t stop thinking about. It is the thing that both terrifies you and brings you the most joy. Already living yours? Great! How do you make the most of it?
The Calling will provide readers with a road map, via 3 fundamental shifts, on how to stay true, get paid and do good. The steps that will help lead you there include:
RECOGNIZING—it always begins with awareness. If you can’t see it then you can’t do anything about it.
ACCEPTING—means embracing, and taking responsibility for yourself, your life, and the things that want or need to be changed.
FORGIVING—yourself and others.
The Calling will be the resource that people have been asking Rha to write for years, and there has never been a better time for her to share her proven method.
