“Choose Courage” Book Series
I have written these books to help you appreciate your strengths. The main book, “Choose Courage: Step Into the Life You Want”, is based on my dissertation research focusing on how people can discover their capacity for courage. As far as I know, this is one of the few research outcomes that actually uncovers how to access and express courage in a holistic, handy way.
One sentence defines what courage is and how to find it within oneself. That seemingly simple sentence symbolizes the accessibility of this book. As it stresses human strengths, the book moves across and integrates fields and information so readers can hear their true voice. Using their own stories rather than being distracted (or merely entertained) by those of other people, each person’s potential becomes immediately apparent for inspiration and action.
“Choose Courage: Step Into the Life You Want” echoes life in its nonlinear approach; readers can find what they want and need at any point, as well as useful surprises. Since words alone cannot capture how to become courageous, photos, poetry, and drawings add layers of meaning to the quotes, humor, and insights from multiple fields. Ways to transcend negative emotions and thinking are additional catalysts that support the process of becoming courageous: “the willingness to realize your true capacities by going through discomfort, fear, anxiety, and suffering and taking wholehearted responsible action.”
