This is the guide to getting out of your own way.
I Am the Hero of My Own Life is a guided journal by Brianna Wiest, published to accompany the masterclass “The Hero of Your Own Life,” available through Thought Catalog Books and The Thought & Expression Company, September 2018.
This journal will help you envision your ideal life and then identify the unconscious attachments that are preventing you from living it. Through a series of writing prompts and exercises as well as some of Brianna’s favorite quotes, most popular articles, and new passages, it will help you sort through the conflicting thoughts, feelings, and fears that are preventing you from becoming the person you want and need to be. You do not need more motivation or drive to start building the life of your dreams. You need to better understand who you are, why you keep re-creating comfortable pain patterns, and why you may not really want what is it you think you do.
Sample exercises include:
– Tracing your judgments of other people back to your own personal insecurities.
– Drafting a Venn diagram of your skills, your passions, and the world’s needs.
– Outlining exactly the type of partner you always dreamed of marrying, then strategizing how you’re going to embody those traits yourself.
– Envisioning what you’d think about and what you’d do all day if you were already healed, whole and happy.
WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN
I believe that the root of the work of being human is learning how to think. From this, we learn how to love, share, coexist, tolerate, give, create, and so on. I believe the first and most important duty we have is to actualize the potential we were born with — both for ourselves and for the world. The unspoken line of everything I write is: “This idea changed my life.” And I hope this book does that for you. I hope it makes you question everything you know about life, and who you are. I hope it deeply inspires you to change and to be the person who does things differently. I hope it inspires you to grow into the kind of human being you have always wanted to be.
