  • “A wonderful book with step by step practical advice. I’ve read many motivational book but most only talk of the theory, here Marjory talks the reader through tackling and resolving issues we may be facing in a practical way. Good book to invest in, it helps and guides us towards our goals which we may think are beyond our reach.”
  • “Research shows we often miss reaching our goals because they are too vague or big. Marjory’s Personal Power Roadmap directly addresses that problem. … the way she lays it out in her easy-to-follow book makes it simple to implement with professional and personal goals. Using question sets and emotion gauges, she helps the reader take a big goal and chunk it into smaller, more manageable components. This then makes the activity more doable while reducing the potential for runaway doubt and negative self talk (referred to as NATS in the book). She clearly lays out the what and the how for each step, provides examples and stories, and guides you through the development of your own roadmap. Using the three essential skills of imagination, cognition, and motivation, her process guides you through the process of mapping out a future state and provides tips for how to course correct without the entire thing falling apart when encountering obstacles that will invariably pop up along your journey. ..As a therapist, I endorse this process. I think Marjory’s roadmap is an excellent resource for between session activities for clients. I found the “hat” exercise particularly useful for clients (and us!) because it facilitates the process of sorting and organizing thoughts and feelings in a way that avoids them becoming overwhelming when pursuing a new goal. Do the work and you will get results personally and professionally.”
  • “Great step-by-step common sense approach to solving many of life’s problems. It helps you systematically break down problems that keep getting you bogged down – no matter age or gender. The progress charts you make will help you see your improvement as it develops. Change is never easy, and the book addresses how to put off the stalling mindset will fall into. The book has the potential to positively change the course of your life.”
  • “Love this book, it gives you clarity and a plan how to stay on track on your way to success.”
  • “Personal Power Roadmap is one of the most useful and well-written books I’ve read so far this year…. I’ve been using decision-making aids like a list of pros and cons for years. However, this book takes the concept to new heights and adds other complementary techniques and exercises that make the pro-con list method even more effective….I was impressed by the wide range of topics that could be addressed with this method. This is one of those books that I will turn to again and again in the future.”
  • “This is a great book for helping give structure to your dreams. There is genius in simplicity and the author gives simple, yet powerful steps. I am glad to recommend this book!”
  • “I usually postpone or try to avoid tasks that I don’t particularly like, but after reading this book I am excited to have shifted my perspective and start taking action right away!
