Changed Everything

Full of self doubts and lifetime of regrets, I took a leap of faith and got this book. I’m glad I did. It gave me so much to think about and why I was endlessly unhappy. James Smith gave me a key to unlocking a door that I had not thought I could. He gives you the key, but you have to want the change. A must read.

Love this....

I’ve been a follower of James Smith for several years. From his Facebook Lives with Brian the bird in Bondi to a brief stint as a JSA member during the first Bali competition where I learned all I need to know to maintain and improve my fitness level. Now this, Not A Life Coach, at a time when pondering significant changes in my life, perfectly guiding my thoughts to what matter to ME, not anyone else. Thought provoking, encouraging, funny and from the heart. Thank you, James, for unknowingly being the person spouting the words I need to hear at just the right time in life. Congrats. Well done.

Evoking, awakening and inspiring book

I was always fascinated by James. He is honest and direct. He is your best friend you always wanted to have. Someone who will tell the harsh truth, but also have your back while you are taking risks for a better life. James give you tools, knowledge and motivation needed to succeed in your life and feel truly happy. Using your own metrics of success and your unique why. This book was wonderful and what was needed in this hard times. Now it’s time to risk and take control of my life. Because at the end of the day “you will be just fine no matter what”

CFD is the way to be!

James is so absolutely humble, yet an incredible inspiration. He gives amazing insight, and analogies to help you conceptualize things like correlating money with calories. These ideas have helped me find the tools I’ve had all along, and put them to use once again. A great thought provoking book, that you’ll be glad you took the time to check out.
