D.I.F.Y. Do It for Yourself: A simple guide to living the life you deserve
By: Garold Vallie
About the Book
Monumental life changes do not usually happen in a tidal wave; they are more often the result of a shift in our small daily habits. Following this mindset, D.I.F.Y. Do It for Yourself offers a path to help you get to the life you deserve.
As a former professional athlete, speaker, podcast host, and a force of positivity, Garold Vallie offers life examples, proven methods, and an easy-to-follow guide to help you get to where you want to be. Different than so many other “self help” books, Vallie has lived it, and the authenticity and genuine care for others shines through.
No one can live your life for you; you have to be an active participant in the joy you imagine, and that is what D.I.F.Y. will help you achieve through personal accountability and honesty, the foundations for building healthy self-worth, self-love, and empathy.
D.I.F.Y. is the easy-to-understand starting point on your journey to where you want to go.
