An individual I had met online in Les Brown’s Facebook group sent me this book. I am now using the book as a resource and inspiration for writing my first book.
The book builds three central arguments:
Your life story, your knowledge, and your message – what you know from experienceand want to share with the world – have greater importance and market value than you probably ever dreamed.My message: To help others succeed by becoming their best selvesWhat I know from experience: Techniques and methods to uncover, or for some, resurrect, your true self
You are here to make a difference in this world, and the best way to do that is to use your knowledge and experience (on any topic, in any industry) to help others succeed. My knowledge and experience: I want to help others succeed by becoming their best selves because I discovered my best self. Note: I will be using the words “best,” “true,” and “authentic” self interchangeably throughout my book.What is your theory? My theory is… that once an individual loses touch with his/her true self, the individual can, through a series of steps, reclaim their true selves and be on a greater path of self-understanding and awareness, a path I call wholeness. My strongly-held belief: That we all deserve to live fulfilled livesI want to share with the world (ie, Brendon calls this one’s”message”) my own self-discovery process of discovering my true self and how others can benefit.My narrative will encompass:
This is where I came from
This is what I went through
What I learned
Where I am now
I rediscovered my true self. My story will both move you. I am a Survivor and blessed with enormous gifts and talents.My message is that we can all discover who we truly are if we open our hearts and minds to the gift of receiving spiritual insight.My book explores the question we all, at some point or another, ask ourselves, “Who am I?” It digs deep and calls upon the reader to look at his/her life and the experiences he/she has had that make him who he/she is.The book deals with peeling the layers of the onion and challenging and questioning beliefs that we grew up with and the very notion of who we are – who we believe ourselves to be.
Are we running away from ourselves? Are we who we really think we are? …who we say we are? Or are we subconsciously living out the exceptions of others without even realizing it?
You will now take an honest look at yourself:
I believe in transparency. In recognizing who we are and honoring ourselves. Many of us are not even aware we are subconsciously living out the lives of others.
This is about truth-telling:
Are you who and what you say you are?
How willing are you to find out who’s “life” you have been living and achieve a level of success for yourself that you never could have imagined…
For the first time discovering who you are, at the core.
Youtube has once again cut my videos off — the worst ever this time! I think I am going to try uploading via my blackberry and see if it makes a difference… For now, here’s the same old mac webcam I have been using:
