An organized guide to turning a dream into a reality without sacrificing achievements in other areas of life. Studies have
shown that personal health directly affects professional well-being and vice versa. As one decreases, the other suffers. Conversely,
as one increases, the other rises as well. By learning how to effectively and evenly pull the strings of both aspects of lifeavoiding
a collision of prioritiesall goals can be reached with less stress and better health. Ready, Set, Achieve! digs into the psyche
of setting a goal, creating a plan of action, carrying out those action steps, finding support systems, and cycling back around
to do it all over again for a new and higher goal. Personal anecdotes from authors Yuri Diogenes and Jodi Miller punctuate
each chapter and give an inside view into overcoming their own struggles and turning them into tangible success stories.
Both authors rely on real-life experience to shed light on how to transform one's mind and body and still create balance.
Diogenes shares the tale of his amazing 100-pound weight loss and subsequent appearance on a national-qualifying bodybuilding
stage in one of the biggest states in the country, while rising to the top ranks in his IT career. And Miller describes her
feat of lifting almost three times her bodyweight at national- and world-level lifting championships, while remaining well
rounded in both her athletic and career worlds. Ready, Set, Achieve! shows the road to just that: being your overall best.
