How to be Yourself: 300 Inspirational Quotes, A Guide to Living an Authentic Life

How to Be Yourself

There’s a reason why I haven’t been posting for awhile: I’m delighted to share with you news that my book, How to be Yourself: 300 Inspirational Quotes, A Guide to Living an Authentic Life has been released on Amazon in both print and ebook formats.

How to Be Yourself shares more than 300 quotes and excerpts which are organized into 12 chapters that address the issues and skills needed to create a life true to yourself.

The quotes are from psychological and spiritual paths for development as well as from literature, poetry, film, song, cartoon, and philosophy. They are excerpted from more than 200 sources by 190 authors.

All together the quotations and excerpts represent a guidebook for personal transformation. The quotes combine the existential and spiritual views to provide a more complete perspective of our human experience. I introduce each chapter with a brief commentary on the subject.

Chapter subjects include: The Call to an Authentic Life, Entering the Wilderness, Uniqueness and Individuality, Personal Autonomy, The Question of Morality, Psychological Wholeness, The Question of Beliefs, Psychological Agency (Personal Freedom, Choice, Will , Action, Responsibility, Nonaction), Living in Process, Approaches to Transformation, The Veil of Thought, and The Self.

The 152-page print version costs $7.95 and the Kindle or ebook version costs $.99.

Thanks in sharing my pleasure of having completed this many-year intention of providing to others these quotes which have helped myself and my clients to live more authentically. There’s still more posts and publications from me to come, for advocating on behalf of personal authenticity seems ever more important with each passing day.
