Summary

How to achieve lifelong fulfillment and lasting happiness by looking no further than within...Can you honestly say that you’re living your best life?

No, not a life of ease and comfort, despite what society may dictate. Nor one of ultimate luxury and opulence.

Living your best life means living up to your full potential, being at peace with who you are and feeling like you’ve given it your all.

It’s about going after what you want, cultivating grit to overcome obstacles, and not feeling like you’ve left something on the table.

But many of us tend to settle for the mediocre, either because we’re comfortable where we are, or because we’re too scared to strive for more.

Maybe you tell yourself that this is the best you can be, and that this - the life you’ve created - is sufficient. But that unique voice within could be telling you otherwise.

By repressing who you genuinely and truly are, you’re unwittingly cheating yourself of the happiness you deserve.

It’s time to take a hard look at yourself, dive inwards, and discover what your inner self is telling you.

In Growing Stronger, you will uncover the secrets to reframe your perspective and tackle the issues that are keeping you from your authentic self. Problems and obstacles are inevitable. And rightly so.

It is these challenges that give us opportunities for growth, where no amount of leisure or comfort ever will.

Becoming the best version of yourself won’t happen overnight. It will take hard work, dedication, and consistency.

By applying the lessons in this guide, you will slowly but surely grow into your best self, as trials shape and polish you into what you are truly meant to be.

Inspirational

This is a fantastic book, it will help you work out why you think what you think and changing the root thought behind what you think will change you and your behaviours and emotions. Working out what those root thoughts are is another story, they are mostly subconscious and were formed right from being a baby. Fortunately that's the mammoth task this book sets about achieving and the result is a beautiful tool in self-mastery. Highly recommended!

Feeling 50 times stronger

Okay so it's hard to measure exactly how much but hey I feel like a completely different person. Let's just say you won't recognize yourself as soon as you start implementing the advice from this legendary book. Hands down one of the most recommended books from my friend groups.

Amazing Listen

I'm so glad I listened to this audiobook, it really had everything for me! It was motivational and empowering to listen to. Inner peace is something we all strive for but find hard to truly achieve. This book gives so many positive, important points on how to improve your self care and become the best version of yourself. Inspiring is an understatement!

Just what I need!

The phrase "living my best life" is often thrown around, but the truth is... Are we really living our best lives? The pressures of social media, peers and colleagues often have a negative impact on your mindset and self-esteem. This book has helped me to realign my mind, my focus and truly think about where and how I find my inner peace. Great book!

Short and Practical- but doesn't know what it is

The book has some nice practical tips if you want to be happier in life. But it doesn't seem to know what it wants to be. On the one hand it tells you real transformation takes ages, and requires re-wiring your mind. But then spends the rest of the time talking about accessing your higher self and intuition. I'd also say all the frames of reference are the discrimination on women and ethnic background. This tells more of her own journey and frames of reference, which isn't a problem for me, except for the patronising assumption on how you experience life.... No one can know how others experience, or react. If you're looking for practical tips and a short read, go for it. But if being patronised and told 'how you experience/react in life' winds you up (like it does me), I'd look for a different read!

Read this book!

I have read a few self-help motivational books but this is like no other. It is completely different. Fascinating, interesting and challenging...but so beautifully done. It discusses things like what is truth, from a baseline perspective ...really thought-provoking. I enjoyed this book from so many unexpected levels and I am so happy that I discovered it. If you read this review and haven't had a listen..then go for it. It won't be what you expect and you won't forget a single thing.

Wonderful inspiration!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the author’s comprehensive advice, warm approach and thoughtfulness. Self improvement and self live, as easy as it sounds - is a tough task in life, and it’s essential to come back regularly to some words of wisdom.

I shall be back not just once, there’s always something new I’ll find here, I’m sure!

Very good choice of narrator too! Excellent job!!

This has helped me find my true self!

I think often we don't realize how much societal pressures, and the pressure we put on ourselves can make us feel less than our true and best version of ourselves. This audiobook really helps you realize that you CAN live up to your true potential and create a life you are truly content with. It provides many different techniques to help reframe your mindset and strive for the happiness you deserve. I have already noticed a difference in myself since listening to this, and I know that it will take time, but with the methods in the book, I am certain I will continue to better myself. Will definitely have my partner listen to this too!

Extremely eye opening and fulfilling!

This is exactly what I needed at this stage in my life. I've recently got out of a bad relationship that knocked my confidence down, this book gave me a great outlook to go by now that has already started to build me back up. I love how detailed it talks on our mind and how exactly we can target and find our calling. Finding your purpose is for sure one of the main factors to inner peace. I look forward to my difficult but highly rewarding healing journey !!

So good!

From a young age, I have always been into personal development and improving yourself on every level. This book was a great way to bring more of that into my life. It was chalk full of information, easy to follow and had actionable steps. If you don’t improve yourself you will never win in life. I’m not perfect, and this book is a great guide for yourself. I loved it! I can’t wait to share it with people! In a time where my life seems a little more difficult, this was nice to listen to :)

Wherever you go, there you are

Lily Tomlin said, "Wherever you go, there you are." Our relationship with our own self is the one we give the least amount of time and attention to, but it's the one that will help all other relationships succeed. Inner work and self-knowledge are key to success in life, and no one can do this but us. This audiobook can help you reach a deeper awareness of a most important person in your life: you.

Much Needed

I was at a place in my life that I really needed this book. I always felt like I was just settling for "good enough" to get by. This book helped me confront the obstacle holding me back from taking the action I needed to grow into who I wanted to be. It really helped me change my perspective and overall mindset of how to deal with my daily issues. The author lays out the information in an easy-to-understand format, and then the narrator delivers an excellent performance. This book was pleased to listen to as I drove to and from work this week. Thank You Y.D. Gardens!

This book is challenging, in the best way

Only get this book if you really want to do some self-exploration. It’s full of productive ideas, and concrete action steps. It’s not just a book of affirmations, it’s the good stuff. Great narrator too.
