Choose Courage Handbook 3

“Choose Courage In Your Relationships: Empower Yourself First” ─ Handbook #3

Even solid relationships ebb and flow, but you can be the lodestar that lights the way to improve the quality and value of current and future connections. Though controlling others is unlikely, your own choices and actions will lead you and people in your professional and personal life to mutually beneficial outcomes. “Empower Yourself First” shows you how to summon your own strengths to do that.

The first of three handbooks on relationships enriches the “Choose Courage” series, with brief, yet practical and inspiring processes for continuing growth. It focuses on you, where the choices start; new experiences and shifts in habits will prompt enjoyment and progress. Expect manageable motivators in small, adaptable steps, as well as quotes, photos, and humor. The book will help you expand your repertoire while honoring who you truly are in authentic relationships.

In addition to the Introduction, you’ll find these four, fresh, encouraging guides to empower yourself:

  • Effective Listening
  • Making Expectations Work for You
  • Appreciating Your Interpersonal Capacities
  • Using Charm and Care to Improve Relationships

“Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude, and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful.”

Jacqueline Bisset
