My Way Workbook

At the end of each chapter the reader is invited to answer a few questions to fill in the blanks. The goal each chapter is to provide the reader with information and inspiration that it will propel him or her into action.

Each one of us must think about how we want our life to unfold at the end; we must tell all of our loved ones about what we want, and we must pick a person with a strong will to fulfill our wishes if need be.
