Be The Hero Of Your Life


Loved it! 😍

The reader goes from hero/heroine-in-progress to their own super-self by the end of this fantastically written self-help guide!

Be the Hero of Your Life forces the reader to stop blaming the outside world for their problems and confront themselves with reality in order to help them become the person they truly want to be. Not just mentally or financially or even physically but in every aspect the reader wishes to change themselves. This book is about unlocking genuine self-happiness and self-confidence as well as creating a new, better, brighter version of oneself that makes the person proud to exhibit to society. I think the whole hero concept is a brilliant way of improving yourself because, unlike many other self-help books, the reader who wants to do something with themselves is cast into the role of an upcoming hero rather than just somebody in need of help or improvement, with plenty of examples to inspire you along the way.

There is quite a sophisticated, philosophical structure to the book. The whole journey is sectioned off into many different yet crucial phases with exercises (such as creating a timeline of your life to give you a good idea of where you are in the 12 stages of the hero’s journey) that allow the reader to pinpoint areas they may want to work on. There are also plentiful mantras and affirmations to 'acknowledge your true self rather than the self you show to other people', which I always like to see in any decent self-help book! Questions are included to help the reader identify what they really want out of themselves. Questions like how do you want to be remembered? What would your final wish be? All of these exercises genuinely made me deconstruct my own view of myself (which is somewhat based off what I think others should think of me as) and look at my answers on paper to give myself an insight into what I truly want out of not only how other people perceive me, but how I perceive myself too. This is a great book to read if you want to try a bit of raw self-discovery, in my opinion!
