With StoryJacking , life coach Lyssa Danehy deHart provides tools for changing your life stories, for digging out inculcated limiting beliefs and replacing them with empowering narratives. Her lessons teach us to take our life stories back over. This echoes the Jungian and shamanic concept of the Shadow and how the things that irritate the hell out of us in others reflects our own hidden Shadow aspects back to us. The information on neuroplasticity was fascinating to me. I already knew about the concept, of course, but still I find it interesting to read about.
The first section explores broad concepts, such as the psyche and how the mind works, and enumerates the StoryJacking steps. Heady, insightful content packaged in a non-threatening, engaging manner; includes ample opportunity for the dedicated reader to consider life-altering directions. The vast majority of people are discontented with their life in some way. The author laid out her idea in plain, simple language, and her friendly, conversational style kept me engaged throughout. The basic idea is that viewing our life as a story gives us more power over it than if we view it as a series of random events. We need to see ourselves as the authors of our tales rather than as just passive, powerless bystanders. If the idea of life as a story resonates with you enough to buy this book, pause after each chapter and think about whether you could use it to help you and how.
