Just in time for the new year, the new bestselling book “Dare to Believe: 12 Lessons for Living Your Soul Purpose” gives readers a guide to achieving their own “soul purpose”. Author Jessica Joines is on a mission to awaken everyone on the planet to their soul purpose. For anyone feeling trapped in a life they don’t love, you have a choice, and Dare to Believe can help you find it.
The first part of the book follows Joines’ tumultuous, joyful and enlightening journey from a burned-out advertising exec to a happy and fearless coach and inspirational speaker determined to help others attain the same freedom to pursue their dreams that she did. Her courageous, transformative and life-changing journey is one that anyone can follow using the book’s 12 lessons. Each align to step-by-step plans of action for success that are practical and have proven to be life-altering for Joines as well as her.
By 2011, Joines had reached what most would define as the pinnacle of professional success—yet she was overworked, deeply unhappy and had turned to self-medicating to cope. Desperate to conquer the fear which dominated her life, she took several daring leaps to find her soul purpose. Joines’ search took her on a year-long solo trip across Southeast Asia and eventually led to what she refers to as “her blissful abandonment of the corporate world.”
As part of the book’s stated goal to help readers, Jessica shares the lessons learned about letting go of fear and aligning to what’s in their heart or love. The 12 life-changing lessons include:
- Only your heart knows your soul purpose
- Release the limiting beliefs that bind you
- Let courage define you until it becomes you
- Believe in what you want with conviction
In each lesson, Jessica shares snippets from her own spiritual awakening, that included recovery from alcohol addiction, and offers a solution for a new consciousness in which people no longer have to wake up working in jobs they hate, merely trying to get by. Ms. Joines started the journey by founding purpose consultancy, Consciousness Economy, but soon realized that working solely with companies, wasn’t enough to tackle the societal issue she cares most about—an unhappy, unhealthy workforce. On a mission to help more people, she is shifting from working with companies to helping individuals find their soul purpose. She believes that by awakening people to their truth, including that they don’t have to work in jobs that don’t feed their souls, she can better serve her mission.
“I wrote Dare to Believe to help people free themselves from a life they don’t love. Suffering is not meant to be our destiny; it’s a choice. A higher truth for your life does exist. For me, I had to hit bottom in every way possible, before I decided I could no longer trudge through life, settling for complacency. And I know there are a lot of people out there just like me who simply do not know how to take that first step towards living a life they’ve only dreamed about,” said Joines. “I created this book as a DIY spiritual guidebook so readers can avoid spending as many years as I did seeking liberation from lives that don’t serve them.”
Nilima Bhat, who co-authored the leadership development book, Shakti Leadership, and wellness book, My Cancer is Me, praised Joines work and its relevance to the challenges of modern life. “Women and men of purpose are what the world needs – in spades – in these awakening times. Dare to Believe is that simple, no-nonsense, practical step-by-step guidebook that will help readers uncover their soul purpose through authentic and effective practices and tools. The same tools and practices that Jessica has lived and applied herself and now shares with successful leaders,” said Bhat. “May this book do great amounts of good by setting many people boldly forth on their purposeful journeys.”
Dare to Believe: 12 Lessons for Living Your Soul Purpose is now available in either eBook ($6.99) or paperback ($12.99) on Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07KBVYF1S
