Reach Professional Goals While Satisfying Personal Ones As Well
In his first book, Content Rules (Wiley; 2010) with Ann Handley, author C.C. Chapman focused on the many ways entrepreneurs and organizations of all sizes could reach their business goals through their content. Now, in his new book Chapman takes readers on a more personal journey, encouraging them to reach their professional goals while satisfying their personal ones as well.
Chapman’s new book, Amazing Things Will Happen: A Real-World Guide on Achieving Success and Happiness (Wiley; November 2012; Hardcover & ebook; $22.95; ISBN: 978-1-1183-4138-4), explores how to create a successful business doing what one loves, responsibly and creatively, using real world examples of people who made amazing things happen for themselves in all different walks of life. Through personal anecdotes from the author's life and interviews of successful individuals across industries, the book demonstrates how to achieve success, in all aspects of life, while Chapman’s direct and candid style enables readers to start putting together their own action plan before they even finish the book.
Chapman takes readers through a creative thinking process and gives them the common-sense tools and techniques needed to fashion opportunities in their own life. The topics covered in each chapter are clear enough that people will find themselves dipping into the book again and again when they need an inspirational boost (or kick in the pants!). These topics include:
- Taking a look at where the reader is now, how to cope with the situation they’re currently in, and how to make the most of it until they can break free
- Exercises and practices that can help define goals and how to set realistic tasks to reach them
- How to navigate the seas of doubters and obstacles
- How to make sure to enjoy the fruits of one’s labors
- Be happier, satisfied, and more rewarded by the life one chooses to lead
“My hope with this book is that it makes clear that once you figure out what you want out of life, if you work very hard, day in and day out, you can make it happen. But you have to be a good human in addition to doing the work,” says Chapman. “As you achieve success, never forget to be kind to others. Help those who need it and share everything you’ve learned with all who ask. Follow these principles and amazing things WILL happen.”
Chapman is encouraging the Amazing Things Will Happen readers to connect with him and each other through the Facebook Fan Page, which will have discussion threads based on the chapter topics, Q&A’s with the author, plus videos and updates for additional encouragement and inspiration.
