Are You Getting the Most Out of Life? Author Shows How to Change Your Thoughts and Live Your Dreams

Nov. 19, 2006 – No matter where we live, how old we are, our cultural background or beliefs we hold true, we are all on a path of personal growth. At times we may experience excitement and joy, while other times we may be confronted by fear, unworthiness and doubt as we do our best to bring our dreams to life. Live Your Dreams Let Reality Catch Up (ISBN 1412047099) by Roger Ellerton PhD, CMC acknowledges this journey and provides insights, tips and processes to assist each of us to get the most out of life. His book helps us to look at ourselves, identify the influence that we allow others to have on us and to move forward to live our dreams.

“An indispensable book that can aid anyone in improving communication at work and at home,” says, CDS Building Movers President John Sweetnam. Ellerton notes there are basically two conversations. The first is the one you have with yourself and the second is the one you have with someone else. If the conversation with yourself is not respectful and supportive of what you wish to achieve, then what kind of conversation will you have with another person? And if the other person does not feel respected, safe, heard or valued, will you be effective?

We are reminded that rather than being a victim to another person’s actions or inaction or their feelings or opinion of us, we are responsible for our own life and what we accomplish. As stated in Live Your Dreams, “Each morning when you get up, you can either ask yourself, “I wonder what my day will bring,” or “What do I choose to bring to my day?” The choice is yours.”

Excerpts from Live Your Dreams have appeared in NASA’s Human Resources newsletter (Work/Life Navigator) and the newsletter for the Eastern Ontario Chapter of the Canadian Association of Management Consultants. Norm Goldman, Editor of, refers to this book as “A wealth of practical information devoid of trivia.”

Roger Ellerton has been helping individuals, from all walks of life and all ages, to learn, to address challenges at work and at home and to get more of what they desire in life.
