You’ve heard the phrase “she’s in her element,” meaning that some lucky soul has experienced a period of time during which she is doing, being, surrounded by things that are completely natural to her, that come effortlessly, and that are conducive to perfect flow.

We’d all like to live forever in our element, but it isn’t easy to figure out how to get there—or even what our element is. Few of us can rattle off a list of our talents, passions, or skills; never mind trying to tie them together with career options or fit them into a schedule already packed with work, school, and family obligations. That’s where Finding Your Element comes in.

This sequel to the authors’ earlier work The Element goes beyond the many books that encourage us to live our dreams by building our lives around the things we enjoy doing and are good at. Finding Your Element recognizes that some of us have no idea what our dreams are. Some of us are convinced that we don’t even have talents or skills. If you’re among that group, this book will be a comforting and surprising eye-opener.

Within these pages, you’ll learn

  • to unearth your aptitudes and to understand why you might not even know you have them
  • what your true passion is, and what that word “passion” actually means to you
  • how your attitude affects your success (or lack thereof)
  • how to construct a plan for efficiently moving toward the lifestyle that works best for you
Finding Your Element contains truly interesting and inspiring case studies as well as practical exercises to help you see yourself more clearly and to spot the abilities and desires that have been hiding in plain sight. Beyond that, you’ll also find sensible advice for connecting with helpful people who can lead you toward more resources, share their own struggles and successes in a similar field, and motivate you to keep following your bliss.
