Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges

My rating 3 out of 4 stars.

I would have given it 4 stars, if not for the way how the book was structured. It starts off pretty well keeping you focused on why you are reading this book.  Her personal struggles only to drift into a lot of science, statistics. The book becomes a drag after some point.

I do feel inspired by how she has put it all together, despite her accident setback that led to losing her identity. It is laudable and this rating is not reflective of her personal story, by any chance. However, the book content could have been presented in an engaging way, rather than piling it with a lot of research papers/statistics. It could have helped to read on how to apply the method and some real-world examples.

Her ted talk is exemplary with a solid message ” Fake it till you become it”. Do go over it.  Over the years I have seen many modalities and I don’t really practice the pose.  It’s just a different way of saying face your challenges with confidence, no matter what.  Starts with how you feel and respond to a situation- be present.
