Behaving Bravely: How to Mindshift Life's Challenges is a must-read for anyone looking to make a lasting change in their life. It is deeply moving and thought-provoking, while also being extremely helpful. Anita takes you into her world of self-discovery, hardship, and struggle. By sharing her personal story she asks you to consider how might you learn from her journey to ease your own.
Both her personal and professional anecdotes are inspiring and helped me to connect even better to the material. In particular, her candid and vulnerable approach to dealing with difficult subjects offers guidance to anyone coping with trauma. Likewise, the BRAVE principles, along with helpful step-by-step tools, affirmations, and exercises offer practical, yet accessible mechanisms for positive transformational growth.
Best of all, the book straddles the personal with the philosophical, offering essential insights as to how to transcend our limitations; most of all fear. Readers will come away stronger and more actualized as individuals from reading this powerful book. I therefore highly recommend it to everyone —no matter where you are in your life's journey.
