Author: Nancy Katyal
Publisher: Om Books International
What is this book all about?
Life is a circus and you are always doing a tough balancing act. The only way to be what you want, do what you want, and have what you want is to change your mindset, attitude, and actions. If only change was that easy. Commit to Yourself makes embracing change a cakewalk, not a tightrope one. It offers no dense philosophy, no Gyan. It lays out simple but time-tested ways based on pioneering studies in behavioral science and the author’s many years of experience in mentoring thousands of people from all walks of life to change themselves first because all changes— personal or professional— you desire to bring in your life depend on it.
The author explains why your current approach to handling things does not work, makes you understand and overcome your biases, and thus creates the much-needed mental shift to get you out of your comfort zone. Committing to yourself is not a selfish act, it takes courage. The author helps you take the first step in that direction by breaking free from what no longer serves you— toxic relationships, and self-destructive thinking and habits. She shows you how to live by your core values; discusses strategies to beat odds, handle regrets and failures; build your muscle of courage, and find your authentic self. The various self-reflective exercises in the book help you to accept yourself, love yourself, and improve yourself, not just your self-image.
