“Your first blog should be about what motivated you to write the book,” said my publicist. This made sense to me since, upon hearing I had written a book, most people asked me my motivation for writing it.
Now I’m thinking the most important question is, “what am I going to get out of reading your book?” That’s what I want to know when I pick up a book about personal growth. What kind of expectations should I have? Will I enjoy it? Will I find it interesting and informative? Will it inspire me? How will I feel when I finish it?
I believe “Who’s Pulling My Strings” is a journey to self-awareness and living consciously, and that most of us are not aware what this exists. I mean, really, how can you want what you don’t know?
Our society and the media program us to live in a constant state of mild to moderate dissatisfaction. This condition is so pervasive that we are not even aware of it. We are seeking more, and not actually knowing what that more is – more health, beauty, youth, more money, more success, more recognition, more acceptance, more love?
When you read “Who’s Pulling My Strings” you will discover that the more most of us are seeking is more of you. As you follow my journey, you will discover the road-map that led me to more – more than I ever dreamed possible. Maybe it will do the same for you.
For me it definitely was a case of, I didn’t know what I didn’t know. I did know I wasn’t as happy as I wanted to be. I knew my life didn’t look like I thought it should. I wasn’t crazy about it, and I didn’t know how to make it be different. Can you relate to any of this?
I might still be living unconsciously today if the shocking words that told me what I believed about me and my life hadn’t come out of my mouth. What a wake-up call! If you haven’t yet read the book you’ll find this out in Chapter 1. This is where the journey starts.
Perhaps the greatest gift you’ll receive reading “Who’s Pulling My Strings”, is the gift of self-awareness. We often find ourselves re-acting negatively to situations, not able to help ourselves, and not knowing why. Conscious awareness of self allows us to feel centered, and instead of reacting, be able to respond from a neutral rather than adverse position.
I was more often able to be at choice as I became self-aware, and discovered what I call my “triggers.” Notice, I don’t say always. Delays between a triggering experience and being conscious of my reaction often do occur. There are still times when I find that I need to pick up my book and read a chapter to get me out of reaction and back on track to what is true.
So, what’s in it for you? “Who’s Pulling My Strings” will assist you in shedding your layers that mask the beauty that is you — the real you. It’s all about experiencing the sublime feeling of peace – it’s about feeling good.
