Synopsis

Come on a fun, interactive journey of self-discovery to uncover your purpose and passions in life. Through a series of introspective exercises, this workbook will help you unlock your potential and transform your life.

You’ll discover how to:
- Identify your fundamental values and uncover your purpose in life.
- Discover your innate talents and skills in line with your passions.
- Learn what value you can give the world so you can make a living doing what you love.
- Create a big, audacious vision for your life in line with your calling.

And more!

Your Rebel Dreams is a life-changing workbook that will take you on a journey of self-discovery where you get to explore the amazing things you’re meant to do. It includes questions in each chapter with space for you to write down your answers and thoughts.

Learn from an award-winning author who used these techniques to go from being a lone immigrant teen, one month away from being homeless, to managing multi-million-dollar projects and traveling the world.

This book was written incredibly well - the writing was lyrical yet straight to the point. I wouldn’t call it a self help book as such, it’s more about self discovery. It isn’t just words on a page to make you feel good about yourself, there are exercises to challenge your beliefs, better yourself and become a stronger and more powerful woman. 


I appreciated the quotes at the beginning of each chapter. They were perfectly chosen and related to what the following chapter discussed. My favourite one was: “I am a woman with thoughts and questions and shit to say. I say if I’m beautiful. I say if I’m strong. You will not determine my story – I will” by Amy Schumer. 


After suffering a crisis of faith in my writing ability, I’ve been stuck in a bit of a funk. I wouldn’t say this book was life changing for me - however, it has given me food for thought and there was a lot wisdom packed into the pages. 


I would recommend this book to anyone looking for some guidance on how they can make their dreams come true. This book can give you the tools to change your own future through self discovery, persistence and motivation.

Ignite the Fire in Your Belly

“I wish I were a girl again, half savage and hardy and free. Why am I so changed? I’m sure I should be myself were I once among the heather on those hills.” ~Emily Brontë




A Fire in Your Belly

We all hold a precious dream within us—a fire burning in our belly. 

Yes, each and every one of us. 

Some of us hide our dreams because we’re too scared to look our truth in the face. And some of us have valiantly tried to bring those dreams out in the open, but quickly stashed them away because of what someone said or how someone judged us. Then, there are those who ignore their dreams, pretending they don’t exist because acknowledging them would mean they’d be compelled to do something.

The end result is graveyards full of women who’ve been buried with their dreams untouched. Imagine what they could have achieved if they’d stood proudly and taken ownership of their future. Imagine what inspiration they’d have given to the next generation of girls, creating a ripple effect that uplifts us all.

The World Is Yours

We’re all capable, more than capable, of bringing our dreams to light. Every one of us. 

Yes, that means you.

This world can be yours. The future can be yours. All you need to do is bravely step up, grab life by the horns and ride it. You must take ownership of your future. No one else can do that for you. And there is no better time to start your life’s amazing ride than today. 

Ignore the Naysayers

Why do we wait for a life-changing event like sickness, death, layoff, bankruptcy, separation, or divorce—times when we don’t have a choice but to wake up and make drastic changes? Why let others dictate who we are and what we must do? 

Most people go through their days in a trance without understanding who they truly are, what they’re doing or where they’re going. 

We, especially women, feel burdened by the expectations others put on us, or many times, by the demands we place on ourselves. Without a clear vision for our lives, we’re easily manipulated to meet the desires of others—people who’ve already figured out what they want in life.

Naysayers can be persistent and hard to ignore, especially if they’re family and friends. But if you can summon the courage to stand in your power, you’ll get an enormous boost in your energy, vitality, and happiness. This is what will catapult you to your dream life.

Remember, how others may judge us is only a reflection of their own insecurities, fears, and worries, or their need to keep us under their control. 

So, stop listening to what they say, stop settling for mediocrity and start following your dreams right this minute.

Summon Your Courage

First, find an ounce of courage inside you. 

Then, do some soul-searching and look for those aspirations longing to jump out. Protect and nurture those dreams. Finally, you must take action. In the end, all the dreaming and wishing and hoping in the world won’t make anything come alive. Only pure action will do so. 

This doesn’t have to be scary or difficult. This can be a fun and fulfilling ride. And you’re not alone. We will take this journey together. 

These books were designed to take you by the hand on an expedition of self-discovery, goal setting, and habit-forming so you can start living your life—the one you desire, not the one others expect of you.

Don’t be afraid to stand at the edge of your comfort zone. Feel that tingle of fear mixed with excitement and give it a whirl with plenty of support and cheering from the rest of us. You’ll find your sense of self-worth will grow and your inner strength surge. You’ll wake up every day feeling good about yourself and confident in who you are. 

More importantly, your vision will expand and you’ll see beyond yourself. And this is where magic happens. When you grow, the lives of those surrounding you will also grow. You’ll become a positive role model for your daughters, your sisters, your neighbors, your colleagues, and more. 

This is what will make you a true Rebel Diva. A strong and proud woman who stands in her own power and inspires those around her. You’ll become the wonder woman we all look up to. 

Now, isn’t that a life worth living?
