The Art and Science of Reinventing Your Career and Life

About The Book

Public speaker, transformative teacher, and CEO of Peak Potentials, Adam Markel has been inspiring people to find their best work for years. Now, for the first time, he presents his practical program for people who are looking to reinvent themselves. Here’s how to “get in touch with your real self, decide exactly who you are and what you want, and make your life into a masterpiece,” raves Brian Tracy, author of The Power of Self-Confidence.

Whether you are out of work or want to change where you are now, Pivot inspires you on a cellular level to make lasting life changes possible. This seminal guide to successfully changing your life for the better provides stories, prompts, clear step-by-step exercises, and calls to actions throughout. You’ll follow the steps of career reinvention: Creating a Vision, Getting Clear, Having a Definite Plan, Thinking Boldly, Relentless Focus, Support, and Spiritual Practice.

By changing self-limiting beliefs—the internal pivot to finding clarity about what you want—you can effectively deal with the mental and emotional obstacles that normally stop you from reaching your career goals. Based on his own personal story and the success of thousands of students, Markel provides a clear and applicable program perfect for “taking charge of your life and realizing your potential” (Sharon Lechter, author of Think and Grow Rich for Women).
