“Don’t Tell Me What To Do” shows you how to break free, explore the exact version of reality YOU want and then practically implement it––on your terms.
The book weaves together Dr. Jennifer Dunphy’s most transformative life lessons and unique experiences together with practical exercises and a solid step-by-step plan for all readers, striving to achieve their personal and professional goals on their terms. From breaking free from the competence-likability trap to overcoming self-bias to reframing “perfection” to cutting off the voices that tell you that you can’t, shouldn’t, or wouldn’t, the book peels back the layers of what’s holding us back and who we can be.
Included in the book you get:
An exclusive program for crafting your version of your ideal life
BONUS companion workbook that you can download after you purchase the book
Exclusive action frameworks for making those visions reality
Tools and strategies to ensure your path to success
Continued support and guidance through an exclusive online community
In Jennifer Dunphy’s words, “You have sacrificed enough of your life doing things the ‘right way’, now it’s time to do things your way.”
Having a road map to serve as a guide to self-development sounds rather impressive, but that is the premise set by Jennifer Dunphy in her book, Don’t Tell Me What To Do.
The cover has a black and white photo of the author reminiscent of an Audrey Hepburn-type pose. It generates the impression that the author has knowledge to share, which coincides with the book’s secondary title: The Secret Guide to Unlocking Your Power, Potential and Purpose.
Designed to be read in order, the book is divided into two parts. The first focuses on the dream, while the second pertains to the transformation. Packed inside the 140 pages, readers will find exercises that will guide them in building the life of their dreams.
I found Chapter 9 particularly interesting as the author takes an average to-do list and explains the value of identifying priority levels. This is necessary for being more intentional.
The significance of the title is reflected in how the author transmits the key points. It’s a book where different people will discover different messages based on their personal goals and vision for the future.
Don’t Tell Me What To Do delivers a sensible approach to tapping into your potential, allowing you to achieve whatever goals you set.
