Seattle, Washington (PressExposure) December 09, 2010 -- Dr. Lana Staheli, founder of BOUNCE Be Transformed and a leading coach on interpersonal relationships and life strategies, shares her story about overcoming challenges to help others do the same in 'Secrets of Self-Starters: 48 Amazing Stories to Ignite the Self-Starter in YOU!' by author Dr. Julie Miller.
"I am honored to be featured in this book by Dr. Miller," said Dr. Staheli. "It provides insights into the various traits that make for self-starters. I hope that by sharing my story, readers will be encouraged and inspired to celebrate and nourish their own capacity to be a self-starter."
Dr. Staheli was born with a typically fatal birth defect and despite operations and other challenges related to this condition she refused to see herself in the role of a victim. She learned to think and dream beyond limitations, and now uses these insights to guide others to find joy and purpose even in the midst of challenging situations to live positive and fulfilling lives.
With a successful private counseling, coaching and consulting practice for more than 35 years, Dr. Staheli founded BOUNCE Be Transformed, to help individuals be inspired, motivated and mine the talents each person possesses. BOUNCE (www.BounceBeTransformed.com) provides participants with straightforward, actionable suggestions that are simple, immediate-and free. BOUNCE is a way of life based on a commitment to personal growth and transformation. Dr. Staheli is also co-founder of Global HELP, a non-profit organization to produce and distribute free or low-cost textbooks congruent with the native language, equipment, medical practices and cultural mores of each of the third-world countries they help.
"Especially at this time when our world is in such a state of indecision and chaos, Dr. Miller's examples of self-starters demonstrate that we can pursue and achieve our dreams no matter what is happening around us," said Staheli.
