"we can quickly (and perhaps unquestioningly) step onto the treadmill of life and end up living it on autopilot."

“It’s so easy to live with the attitude ‘so what’s next?’ rather than simply enjoying ‘what’s now?’”

In How to Have a Great Life, author Paul McGee discusses how “we can quickly (and perhaps unquestioningly) step onto the treadmill of life and end up living it on autopilot.”

To avoid this fate he explores how How to Have a Great Life starts with you – your strengths and amazing potential and how to develop these.

Each of us already has many of the tools we need to succeed – we just need to know which ones to use and how best to use them.

With chapters covering areas such as ‘Remember You’re OK’, ‘Quit Playing the Game You’ll Never Win’, ‘Why Fear Isn’t Always Your Enemy’, ‘Struggles Can Strengthen You’ and ‘Manage Your Mental Diet’, McGee’s advice will help the reader understand how to tap into their ability to grow, while equipping them with insights, inspiration, and practical tools to deal with whatever life throws their way.

Filled with no-frills, funny, and emotionally intelligent advice, How to Have a Great Life shows readers how to take action to achieve success and live a happy and fulfilled life.

As McGee says: “A life of success, fulfilment and happiness does not just happen by accident. It happens by action. So, quit the talking and do some walking. Today.”




How to Have a Great Life by Paul McGee is due to be published 29th June 2018. It will be available wherever books and ebooks are sold, priced £9.99.
