‘Reboot Your Thinking’ is about how I use 28 daily themes – including fun, mindfulness, boldness, happiness, kindness, shame, guilt, anger, failure, resilience and connection – to think differently and move further towards being the best version of myself.
This workbook is full of practical strategies to help you:
– recognise and deal with fear
– overcome low self-esteem
– reflect on and learn from the difficult times in your life
– find your authentic self
– become more connected with others
– improve your life every day.
Learn how to see the world through your eyes, listen to the words being said about you with your own perspective, and be kind to yourself.
This book is intended as a ’28-days-in-a-row’ kind of thing. Honestly, though, you will see some sort of benefit if the 28-day program takes you 280 days to complete, just as you will definitely see a benefit from going through the 28 days every 28 days, over and over again.
Actually, it IS all about me
From the time when I was very little, I was told that ‘the world didn’t revolve around me’.
I grew up believing that being ‘selfish’ – whatever I thought that was – was one of the worst things I could be. If nobody was selfish, then everyone would get enough of what they wanted, and everyone would live happily ever after.
Well, it didn’t quite work out that way. Not for me, and not for many people in my generation who were taught the same thing.
I put everyone’s needs and wants before my own, and even before my own physical (and spiritual) safety. It wasn’t just me though, of course. My whole generation did that. And my parents’ generation. And their parents.
But I don’t want that for my kids.
I want my kids to know that they don’t have to get their esteem from anyone, or anything, else. I want them to know that their value was equal to any other human baby born on the same day as them, and that won’t ever change. I want them to know that their primary concern in life should first be about themselves, everyone else in their life – including me – can be considered after they consider themselves.
And I want them to know that no matter what kind of relationship they find themselves in, or who they find themselves in a relationship with, they will still be the most important person in their own lives, and should always put themselves first.
