A life-changing book...

I was offered the chance to read The Power to Transform: 90 Days to a New You by Chris Majer through one of the reviewer outlets I belong to. Personal growth titles tend to get my attention, and this one had some appeal to it based on the description. After reading it, I was blown away. This is an excellent book that does indeed change the way you think about a number of things.

Contents:
The History of the Human Potential Project; How To Use This Book; Language Shapes Reality; Learning In A New World; It All Moves From Center; Cultivating Awareness; Choice - Claiming Your Birthright; Ability and Willingness; Accountability; Commitment; Trust; Honesty; Integrity; Being A Stand; Acknowledgments; Index; About the Author

The book starts out with something that may seem unrelated to transformation: how language works. But it's Majer's contention that once you understand the power of language and how it affects your view of reality, many things become possible that seemingly were impossible before. Learning how declarations, assertions, assessments, requests, promises, and offers work give you a framework to understand what is fact and what is opinion (and there's FAR more opinion than fact out there). With that groundwork in place, Majer starts working on the areas of your life where you have control, such as choice, being accountable, having integrity, and so on. Each chapter has assignments associated with it, with the mindset towards incorporating these elements and learnings into your life. I was surprised at how much of our reality is influenced by what others are telling us, and how those things are quite often assessments and not assertions of truth.

Every one of these chapters spoke to me, and I'm in the process of rereading the book with a notebook, pen, and highlighter in hand. Even learning that you can't be competent at everything, and that you have permission to declare yourself a beginner in order to start learning was a big revelation. I don't know how many times I've beat myself up over not being good at something that I've never tried.

If you're willing to work at this material and strive towards "embodied competence", this book can change your life around. The Power to Transform: 90 Days to a New You is one of those life-changing books...
