Review:

"Jim Loehr's principles have helped unleash the creativity, capability, and potential of top-performing people throughout P&G. This book can do the same for knowledge workers everywhere."
-- A.G. Lafley, Chairman of the Board & CEO, Procter & Gamble

"Jim has brought to print many of the key insights that he has so successfully used to help athletes, business executives, and other leaders as they confront and change their own personal stories. I know his coaching works because I have seen it change the lives of many of PepsiCo's leaders."
-- Steve Reinemund, former CEO, PepsiCo

"This book powerfully and inspiringly communicates that we are the creative force of our own life. We can write and act on the stories that give our life its greatest meaning and fulfillment. Jim Loehr has produced another brilliant and immensely practical book."
-- Dr. Stephen R. Covey, author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and The 8th Habit: From Effectiveness to Greatness

"This epic contribution from Jim Loehr is fully compatible with the prevailing science of human flourishing: More than actual events, people's interpretations of those events -- their stories -- determine their emotional states, and in turn their actions, health, and success in life. If you'd like to re-sculpt your life, the accessible synthesis of science and practice offered here can be a welcomed road map."
-- Barbara L. Fredrickson, PhD, Kenan Professor, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

"Being fully engaged as a Navy SEAL demands skillful management of all four sources of energy -- physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual. This passionate and convincing book can change one's life through the process of facing your own personal truth, determining those aspects of your life you hold most important, and crafting an action plan to complete your life's mission. The young men who successfully complete SEAL training have, in their own way, done just that! Jim's wisdom can be anyone's wisdom, and his energy and passion can be shared among us all."
-- Rear Admiral Ray Smith, former Commander of the Navy SEALs, U.S. Navy (retired)

Book Description SIMON SCHUSTER, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In his groundbreaking new book, Dr. Jim Loehr, New York Times bestselling coauthor of The Power of Full Engagement, examines the way we tell stories about ourselves to ourselves -- and, most important, the way we can change those stories to transform our business and personal lives. Your story is your life, says Loehr. As human beings, we continually tell ourselves stories -- of success or failure; of power or victimhood; stories that endure for an hour, or a day, or an entire lifetime. We have stories about our work, our families and relationships, our health; about what we want and what we re capable of achieving. Yet, while our stories profoundly affect how others see us and we see ourselves, too few of us even recognize that we re telling stories, or what they are, or that we can change them -- and, in turn, transform our very destinies.Telling ourselves stories provides structure and direction as we navigate life s challenges and opportunities, and helps us interpret our goals and skills. Stories make sense of chaos; they organize our many divergent experiences into a coherent thread; they shape our entire reality. And far too many of our stories, says Loehr, are dysfunctional, in need of serious editing. First, he asks you to answer the question, In which areas of my life is it clear that I cannot achieve my goals with the story I ve got? He then shows you how to create new, reality-based stories that inspire you to action, and take you where you want to go both in your work and personal life.For decades, at the Human Performance Institute, Loehr has been examining the power of story to increase engagement and productivity, and Fortune 500 companies have paid millions to send employees to his program, in which he applies the principles and methods that he now offers in this book. Global business leaders, world-class athletes, military special forces, and thousands of individuals from every walk of life have sought out and benefited from his life-altering insight and expertise.Our capacity to tell stories is one of our profoundest gifts. Loehr s approach to creating deeply engaging stories will give you the tools to wield the power of storytelling and forever change your business and personal life.
