About "Book"

Imagine if someone could give you a way to have more joy in your life each and every day despite your age, income and circumstances? Today’s scientific research is saying we can actually choose to look for and have the joy we want! In their new book, The Power Of A Pivot: How changing your mindset can bring you more joy in every aspect of your life, Kim Howie and Nancy Werteen, the co-founders of The Wisdom Coalition, give readers tips and tools for a better understanding of the path to true happiness. This lively book is couched in humor and self-reflection and reads like a comfortable conversation with two good friends.  If you’re not waking up each morning searching for and finding complete joy, Kim and Nancy say what you need is a pivot-a change in direction because life is a terminal condition and complaints and complacency don’t care about the time clock that is ticking for all of us.  This is the central theme of The Wisdom Coalition, that joy is a choice and that this life changing decision is perpetuated by the camaraderie and wisdom we all have to share with one another. But to be able to find joy, you must know what that means to you. You must examine your own thoughts and feelings and figure out what is serving you and what isn’t! This book is your guide and your mentor to unlocking the joy that can be yours.
