I struggle with frustration. Unchecked frustration for me turns to anger. It’s how I operate and how I am wired. But what if I can modify that circuit? Are we really as hard wired as we think we are in our behavior and actions?

My life coach, Chris Dewey, recommended this book to me. The transforming this book discusses centers on looking at things in a different way. When something goes wrong, what if you looked at it with a completely different perspective? Thing A didn’t go wrong, but it instead offered a new possibility or alternative outcome. I’m not saying it’s only a feel good book of all things work out for the good in the end or any of that crap, but it’s more about changing how you think about things regardless of what you’ve been taught, learned, or picked up from some of our whacked out cultural rules.

This book had some good information in it. I ultimately grew annoyed with the plethora of analogies and stories from the authors’s real life experiences or parables, but some were good. Personally I’ve gotten way more insight and transformation from working with my coach, but this book would have been a good place for me to start if I didn’t already have the coach in the mix.

“What the heck is a life coach?” you ask. Check out the link above for Chris and see for yourself.
