Inspired and Unstoppable

Did you ever feel as if a book was written just for you and the author had done a Vulcan Mind Meld and effectively tapped into your deepest desires and most heart rending fears?  This writer and her book did exactly that for this reviewer.  Harvard educated attorney, Tama Kieves left a ‘secure’ job as a successful (by the world’s standards) attorney to cavort with her dreams. She wrote about that journey in her first book called This Time I Dance! Since then, she has worked with countless people to assist them in living their own visions. In her second book, Inspired and Unstoppable:  Wildly Succeeding in Your Life’s Work!, (yes, the word Succeeding is in bold on the cover:) Tama invites the reader into her own messy and marvelous mind. Did I ever feel at home there as she expresses many of the same doubts and fears, joys and challenges that I face as an author who has recently left a long time job to embrace my own path? You betcha!

Particularly engaging about Inspired…is that Tama writes with an authentic voice, without sugar coating her feelings. She dares to be REAL, even if her heart is pounding in rhythm with her doubts. She incorporates musings from her journals as well as quotes from notables such as Wayne Dyer, Pema Chodron, Abraham Hicks, Henry David Thoreau and from A Course In Miracles.  At the onset of each chapter are said quotes and at the end are reinforcing concepts that she has already woven into the text which she calls Inspired Successisms. You may find yourself wanting to copy them down, like fortune cookie slips and keep them in your wallet.  “Just because you don’t have a plan nailed down doesn’t mean you’re a loose screw.” ” I came to see that self- acceptance does not lead to self- indulgence, but to strength and self -reliance.”  and “Love sells. Joy sells. Connection sells. Great energy draws abundant opportunities to you. It’s just natural and inevitable.”

Chapter titles include Lovers Sell More Than Critics,  It Takes A Break To Have A Breakthrough, You’ll Have Bigger Fish To Fry When You’re Not Fried, and Take It In Or You Can’t Win. Each one incorporates wisdom gleaned from her own life experiences and those of family, friends and clients over the years. At the back of the book are what she refers to as The Practices:  Portals Back To Inspired Living that include exercises such as The Win List (things she has done to keep her dream boat afloat), Mojo Mantras (a phrase that pays to repeat over and over until you absorb it) and Inspired Self-Dialogues ( a conversation between the you who doubts and dramatizes and your wise mind, Higher Self or whatever your perception of the Divine might be). I use these practices and find them helpful.

This book is the ideal guide for anyone who desires to lovingly lead a life (both personally and professionally) that is worthy of the magnficence that they are.
