Ten Life Changing Lessons contains wise advice for everyone, whatever their religion or core beliefs. The ten lessons Winsome Campbell-Green includes in her concise yet substantive book can be found in every great philosophical tradition and are taught by most New Age life coaches. But she serves them up in her own unique, delightful manner, including how these lessons transformed her own life and can help you enjoy every minute of every day of your life.
Are you holding on to grudges? Winsome’s powerful first lesson is about forgiveness, which is sometimes hard advice to follow. She strengthens her lessons with wise quotes at the beginning of each chapter and ends each chapter with questions to make you pause and discover the steps you need to take to transform yourself.
Other sage advice included in the book includes listening to your intuition and feelings and not your fears, being positive, objective, accountable and grateful. Who could argue with these concepts? Instead, if you’re feeling your life is less than what you want it to be, read and reread the author’s suggestions and be sure you’ve put them into action.
Winsome Campbell-Green is a multi-talented young Jamaican woman who has a passion for writing and inspiring people. She holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree with very high honors and hopes to change the thoughts and lives of people with her books. She is currently working on her first novel as well as her second non-fiction book. She was gracious enough to answer my questions below.
Winsome: Ten Life Changing Lessons is a book aimed to help both women and men, especially young adults, to make better life choices. The book aims to eliminate self-doubt, lack of confidence and seeks to encourage readers to be themselves, be comfortable in their own skin and appreciate life for what it is.
What inspired you to write the book?
Winsome: I was inspired to write this book after going through various life struggles and bad friendships and just a genuine interest to overcome the “negatives” in life. The lessons are real and they come from a real place. They are very simple yet powerful lessons that made a world of difference in my own life. I started the book on the topic of forgiveness because it does not come very easily. There are perhaps a million books out there that “teach” people how to live a better life but I wanted to show people that because I learned and now live by my own principles, I am a now able to live a life of purpose and potential. This book only became possible because I chose to change my perception of life. If I can do it so can you.
What do you hope readers will take away from your book?
Winsome: My hope is that my readers will feel uplifted, feel better about themselves and feel more hopeful about their own lives. I invite my readers to examine how each lesson resonates with them. This book is a guideline on how to live one’s higher purpose, one step at a time, one day at a time, and most importantly, how to have fun throughout the journey!
Where do you find your inspiration?
Winsome: Hmmm…that’s easy:) Me! My own life, really. I was just like anyone else who has ever felt wronged and felt like “nothing ever goes right!” All my life, I have always felt that I experienced various struggles for a reason, and each one left me with a very important lesson which I felt had to be shared. While others will “suffer” in silence, I wanted to tell my stories. Just knowing how it really resonates with people is very heartwarming!
Any advice for others who feel they have inspiration to share?
Winsome: Go for it! Believe in your work and believe in yourself. I met someone who started to write at a late stage in life and her only regret is that she wished someone had encouraged her from her younger days to write. As I stated in my own book, “Confidence Is Everything.” If you are still in doubt, check out my book and look at the lessons. Feel inspired and LIVE inspired!
