The Smart Women’s Institute, Inc. releases Smart Women Embrace Transitions, the much-anticipated new anthology chock-full of amazing stories of powerful personal transformation in the face of life-altering events
(San Antonio, Texas) May 28, 2012 - The Smart Women’s Institute, Inc. (SWI) today announced the release of their fifth book in the popular and widely-read Smart Women Book SeriesTM Smart Women Embrace Transitions: How To Lean Into Change With Your Body, Mind, and Soul.
Like the other books in the series, it is powerful, engaging, and inspirational. But this one goes down a slightly different path. It reveals how successful women entrepreneurs have faced huge, life-changing transitions in the areas of health, divorce, loss of loved ones, and more. The key message is how a woman’s mindset determines the outcome.
“For many, it is absolutely painful,” says SWI’s CEO Sheri Keys McConnell. “They avoid various types of transitions no matter the cost to themselves and the ones they love. But it doesn’t have to be that way.”
During the transition process, there are many physical, mental and emotional journeys a woman will take – good or bad. The book teaches women how to make those journeys count in ways that are life-enhancing and soul-healing. “It’s not about not allowing yourself to feel the pain or the fear but to not let those emotions overwhelm and paralyze you,” she says. “I believe if you lean into the change, you’re more apt to get started on the process of acceptance right now.”
Each woman’s story is completely different from the next, yet each one offers deeply personal and profound insights into personal transformation through difficult, unexpected circumstances. And all tell the tale about how they’ve come to be conscious creators of their lives as a result – an approach McConnell says is critical to living a truly meaningful life lived from the essence of who a woman really is – the only way for a woman to get there is by digging deep and connecting with her soul.
“It can be gut-wrenching work, but my hope is that by learning how to ‘lean’ into transitions, women will no longer try to force themselves to just be happy but instead they will move forward and do the work to get to the magical life they can have on the other side of the transition. Otherwise they’ll continue to let life happen to them.”
The Smart Women SeriesTM of books has an inspiring track record. Their 2011 release, Smart Women Live Their Why: How Women Entrepreneurs Are Living On Purpose and In Passion reached No. 1 on Amazon at launch, and was the only female-authored book in the top 25 books in business.
