Ridiculously Happy!  The Secret to Manifesting the Life & Body of Your Dreams

Ridiculously Happy LowRes Cover for WebsiteReady to live your very best life? Actually, the secret to becoming absolutely, ridiculously happy is already being conveyed to you every moment of every day. And, it’s coming right from within you. Now, life transformation coach Carol Whitaker can teach you how to tap into the positive potential of your physical and emotional well-being, and by doing so, achieve your lifelong dreams. 

Ridiculously Happy! The Secret to Manifesting the Life and Body of your Dreams is Whitaker’s groundbreaking, step-by-step approach to changing the course of your life. By empowering you to claim your God-given birthright to have a meaningful, blissful existence, the author encourages you to simply embrace your own unique magnificence to manifest dreams. 

Placing equal emphasis on both mental and physical positive energy, this comprehensive book shares strategies to harness the power of the Law of Attraction. By letting go of negative energy and thinking intentionally about the way you live your life, you will not only set yourself on a road to vitality, abundance, and deep satisfaction, but you will become your own cheerleader to stay the course. If you believe you can be ridiculously happy, Carol Whitaker’s illuminating, actionable book will show you the way.

Rave Reviews:

“I’ve read several books from coaches whom specialize in various areas people would like to improve in their lives. Each coach had his or her own tips and techniques that could be applied to one’s life to reach her goals and make lifelong changes. I love these books because they inspire me to think about the choices I make and how positive results can be attained by working first on the inside.

In this way, Ridiculously Happy! is similar to other books that teach the method of changing your beliefs surrounding the area you’re wanting to improve and abundance will follow. (Of course, I’m super simplifying here.) There are, however, a few things that set this book apart from the others I’ve read.

First, many coaching books talk about putting your intentions out to the universe and reminding it what you want again and again through various techniques. This has always been slightly uncomfortable for me, because I’m a Christian and believe that abundance and blessings come from God. So, I’ve always tailored my intentions to my belief system and spoke to him directly. Ridiculously Happy! is written from an openly Christian perspective, and author Carol Whitaker does a beautiful job of giving her transformation advice and manifesting happiness by embracing God’s light and letting it shine through you.

Is the book a Bible thumping lecture, absolutely not. I just think it deserves mentioning that this guide particularly resonates with me in this way. Could anyone of any religion or belief system benefit from this book? Absolutely.

Another difference that I love, love, love, is that Whitaker breaks her strategies down into small chunks and outlines the advice in an easy to follow format. I really like that she advises you to read through the whole book and then go back piece by piece to implement the strategies. And, that she makes it simple to find the specific actions quickly and easily. I hate having to skim whole chapters for key elements. It’s a bummer and eventually leads to me setting the book aside. Clear is better. It’s as simple as that.

Finally, Carol Whitaker has such a happy, inspiring and motivating tone, you can’t help but want to know more. I’ve read otherwise great books by coaches who REALLY liked to toot their own horns…again, and again, and again…until I wanted to scream, “I get it; you’re awesome! What about me?” Not once did I feel that way about Whitaker’s book. The testimonies of triumph she shared, not just hers, but others as well, were inspiring without being braggy. They really gave me the feeling that I could make the changes in my life that I’m so desperately wanting.

I loved this book and will be referencing it often. I can’t testify that it’s changed my life, because I’ve not had a chance to implement all the techniques diligently yet. I will say the ideas and advice are solid and make sense to me, and I’m all in on giving them a whirl. Great book. I recommend it.”
~ Jessi Arias-Cooper,

“Carol Whitaker is special. I admit that I was leery of the concept of a Life Coach, until I met Carol. What appeals to me about Carol is that she understands what it’s like to live with, and overcome, emotional and physical pain. In her own life she has overcome numerous trials which have given her great empathy and understanding towards others. She has spent years studying and applying the laws and principles of health and happiness. She lives and breathes the truths that she teaches in this book, and the beauty and success of her life now is evidence of that. She is a deeply spiritual and highly intelligent woman, with a gift for helping others to see and achieve their potential.  The principles and practices that she teaches in Ridiculously Happy! can be applied to improve every facet of a person’s life: emotional, spiritual, and physical. I began working with Carol as my Life Coach last year, and she’s helped me so much to achieve my goals and live a much more healthy, productive, and joy-filled life.  She is a gifted Life Coach who is now sharing her talents with everyone through this book.  It is a privilege to know and work with Carol, and I’m so excited that others will be able to benefit from her expertise. I hope you’ll read and really apply the things you learn from Carol’s book, Ridiculously Happy!.  If you have the opportunity to also work with her as a Life Coach, your life will be transformed.  She is that good.”
~ Jennifer Kambourian, Oakton, Virginia

“Wow! One can stop searching Amazon for the perfect “self help manual” because Carol’s book has it all!  Ridiculously Happy! The Secret to Manifesting the Life & Body of Your Dreams  should be required reading for every young person about to venture out into the “real world” because the information it contains would quickly steer their life to greatness.  However, for the rest of us, the faster we get the book the faster we can start moving that way ourselves!  If you need to improve any area of your life (and who doesn’t?) this book is a must read!”
~ Peggy Lee, Author, Speaker

~Dawn McIntyre

“I love this book! I refer to it often and can’t wait to get an audio version for my car. I especially like the success stories.

It felt like Carol was my own personal coach and whenever I needed a boost of inspiration or motivation, I could open the book anywhere, read a section and feel empowered to stay on the positive track for my own success. I continue to refer to this book for self-help and anytime I want to supplement my own manifesting power. Everyone said that I was already a great manifester, but Carol’s book has definitely backed me up! The spiritual undertones are powerful and if you’re on any kind of spiritual path that include any form of religion, your open mind can interpret your own higher power throughout this encouraging book. When I feel inspired and excited about one of my own ideas, I like to read parts of the book and feel my ideas amplified and more supported by the power of the law of attraction through Carol’s energy throughout her book. I highly recommend this book for any pursuit in life. Please share it with anyone you feel with be helped by a one on one manifesting mentor, even your children. Reading it will change how you approach your own personal life, how you treat yourself and the direction you want it to go… As it did for me.

This book is like a cookbook, with wonderful recipes to follow to create something in our lives that’s yummy….and to share it with others, like good food. I am currently manifesting my own dreams right before my very eyes!”
