We all experience upheaval in our lives. There’s the unexpected illness, the unfaithful spouse, the layoffs at work, and, of course, the pandemic. The important thing, according to Rossetti, an expert on “individual transformation,” is how we respond. We can either make small changes to stay afloat (holding on to our perceived identity) or use the event to transform our lives (and possibly find our true calling). The key to transformation is looking inward for expectations and values. The author uses her own experiences and case studies of people she’s worked with on their journeys to offer a road map to recovery. She addresses obstacles, including emotions, expectations, and the input of others, and demonstrates ways to use such challenges to enrich our lives. Rossetti urges readers to use a toolkit dubbed “The Incubator” to face the uncertainty of change and nurture their true selves. Each chapter ends with prompts for self-reflection and an example of someone using the techniques successfully. Anyone facing life issues (which is just about everyone) will be inspired by Rossetti’s solid guidance.
