When was the last time you were really excited about your life? We set out in life believing we will achieve great things. But along the way self-belief fades and even if we are happy, we may suspect that we have settled rather than really pushed ourselves. We let go of our 'youthful delusions'. But youthful dreams don't have to be delusions! And right now is a good time to take stock of your life and to reawaken that younger self who believed you could set your mind to anything and achieve it. Norah Casey discovered this the hardest way imaginable. Losing her husband shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer forced Norah to take stock of her life. Despite her success in business and her high profile, she recognized that she had settled. So began a journey of self-discovery that forced her to reinvent herself. Norah shares her journey and the lessons she has learned in Spark! Drawing on a mix of personal insight and the wisdom of twenty years as a top business woman, she explains how we can renew our passion and our ambition and become the best we can be. Put aside any pre-conceived notions: this isn't about blinding flashes of brilliance or razzle dazzle You don't have to be super-clever or endlessly fascinating to recover your spark. But you do have to be prepared to work hard to be the very best you can be and to rediscover the more splendid you. Norah Casey is a journalist and former nurse.
