Authenticity: Be You Be Happy
Originally published in November 2013, The Naked I is already on its second print run.
An exploration into how the Unconscious Mind works in creating 91% of our moment by moment reality and often runs programmes around Stress, Anxiety and Depression that we don’t want. Readers will learn true self awareness, self esteem and self empowerment: the only permanent solutions to Stress, Anxiety and Depression.
So who are you? Really? Very few of us can answer that question and we need to know.
We learn to conform almost from birth. We’ve never taken the time to stand back and look at ourselves and find out what makes us special. Instead we’ve taken on the expectations of our parents, the admonishments of our teachers, the mickey-taking or bullying of our peers, the machinations of our colleagues and the lectures of the media. We’ve learnt to please everybody but ourselves.
At every stage of life we’ve borrowed other people’s “emotional clothing” to cover our nakedness – a shirt here, a jacket there, a scarf here, a hat there; layer by layer, we’ve moved away from being ourselves. In fact, we show everybody a mere hologram of our real selves – and that’s not real or even of any substance!
How are we supposed to be happy or feel good about ourselves if we don’t know who we are? How are we supposed to live a fulfilled and successful life unless we have self awareness?
The Naked I is your chance to strip off all the extraneous clothing and see the unique and special beauty and the power of who you really are.
Once you begin to honour that special person and stop worrying about what others think, you will empower yourself to be happy and powerful and to make a difference in the very troubled world that we live in.
Mark has distilled into this profound book the learning from his own breakdown and from helping thousands of people to overcome stress, anxiety, depression, eating disorders, lack of confidence, fears and phobias, and addictions of all kinds over the last twelve years. In the same way that his processes have helped thousands of clients, he hopes that this book will empower YOU to transform YOUR life.
