Are you struggling to meet your life goals and dreams because you consistently talk yourself out of taking any action out of fear that you may fail? Everyone has an inner script that determines the actions we take and the emotions we experience. By understanding your mind, you can easily shift from a procrastinator who criticizes themselves to a more confident and self-assured individual who faces obstacles in life with optimism and vigor. Discover the simple but powerful techniques to finally quiet your Inner Antagonist who is sabotaging your success, and open your mind to the Inner Advocate because that is where the magic is going to happen. Allow Colleen Georges to guide you through the eight practices to rescript your story so you can face the future with the knowledge that you are in control of your destiny.

Rescript the Story You're Telling Yourself by Colleen Georges is a wonderful, detailed guide, a definitive Bible for anyone wishing to understand the working of the human mind, so they realize why they act in a certain way. This book answers so many questions about human behavior and the way we are derailing any form of positive action. The exercises throughout are amazing, thought-provoking, and will serve as a constant reminder to 'rescript' our internal dialogue. I feel totally empowered that I have always been in control of my behavior, and now with this guide, I can ensure that the actions I take will only serve me in a positive light. I cannot recommend this guide enough and I would love to see it in every school where children can learn the confidence to believe in themselves and their abilities. My particular favorite parts of the book were the explanation of ego and superego. This gave a clear understanding of where our mindset stems from. The Life Story Satisfaction scale and the RESCRIPT quizzes were mindblowing. Thank you to the author for putting all her wisdom into one book.

"You can’t start the next chapter of your life if you keep re-reading the last one. Unknown." When you read this sentence, what resonates with you? In RESCRIPT the Story You're Telling Yourself: The Eight Practices to Quiet Your Inner Antagonist, Amplify Your Inner Advocate, & Author a Limitless Life, Colleen Georges has used her own experiences and those that she's worked with to create this gem. In this book, you will experience a series of techniques to help you to get back on track to gain your best life. As we get older we tend to get stuck within our own minds by rehearsing the negative self-talk instead of embracing the positive experiences. This book consists of a framework comprising eight practices that help you dig deeper into making the necessary paradigm shift to becoming a better you. Get ready to roll up your sleeves and work but with the understanding that only by doing the exercises and being transparent will you succeed.

I enjoyed this book because it contains so much information on how to change the conversation we keep telling ourselves. Working through the eight principles and going through the worksheets helps not only to channel what you say and think about yourself but how you see yourself. Since the material can be so intense -- remember we're talking about digging into the past to bring forth a more fruitful future -- it is broken into bite-size pieces from Part 1: The Old Limiting Life Story and Part 2: The Eight Practices of The RESCRIPT Framework to Part 3: The New Limitless Life Story. In this book, nothing is sacred and no stone is left unturned. Colleen will make you work on everything from your living environment, mental, emotional and spiritual health and your career to your finances. Since all of these things are essential elements to your well-being, why not work on it? Enjoy!

RESCRIPT the Story You're Telling Yourself: The Eight Practices to Quiet Your Inner Antagonist, Amplify Your Inner Advocate, & Author a Limitless Life by Colleen Georges is one of those rare books that everyone — and I mean everyone — needs to read, because even people who have learned to master their inner, depressive and negative critic still find themselves at times caught up in limiting beliefs. In this book, the author shares great wisdom with readers and shows them how negative self-talk, unnecessary worry, and destructive beliefs stand in the way of living fully and achieving their dreams. Offering eight powerful practices to unlock their potential, experience inner freedom, and develop a healthy relationship with self, Colleen Georges draws from her experience and offers insights that will transform the lives of readers.

Dealing with limiting beliefs is a subject that has been written about so often, but Colleen Georges offers a fresh perspective on the subject, providing a roadmap to beat the beliefs and the stories that have been at the root cause of some of the failures we experience in different areas of life. Her eight practices include the ability to diagnose and recognize these scripts for what they are, the practice that builds self-empowerment and that helps readers identify the tools they need to craft the life of their dreams, the attitudes to develop in order to face imperfection and transform it into something positive, and a lot more. She writes in a strong, compassionate voice that speaks straight to the heart of the reader, infusing the writing with examples pulled from real-life situations. RESCRIPT the Story You're Telling Yourself is a book to read, and then share with others. A wonderful gift for personal transformation.

Rescript the Story You’re Telling Yourself is a psychological self-help book penned by author Colleen Georges, one which introduces ‘The Eight Practices to Quiet Your Inner Antagonist, Amplify Your Inner Advocate, & Author a Limitless Life’. Focused on the concept of the ‘inner critic’, or ‘self-saboteur’ as some people know it, this approachable and comprehensive guide aims to help individuals who feel damaged by their own thoughts and their processing of difficult or uncomfortable experiences. Regret, worry, and feelings of low self-worth are reframed through examining and removing limitations set by the self, learning to cultivate positive behaviors and quietening the voice that inhibits achievement and bravery when making life decisions.

Dr. Colleen Georges opens herself and her life to readers in a very engaging way, admitting her own battle with self-questioning and anxiety as she introduces readers to the simple but effective methodology of the rescripting/reframing ideology. Negativity in the past is a big focus of the volume, which is very well organized into coherent chapters that can be returned to or read out of sync and still easily understood. There are also some really handy personalization elements like quizzes which help you to understand exactly which principles of the book are more likely to work for you, as well as helping readers to figure out their own patterns before they tackle them. The writing style is highly engaging, non-judgemental and friendly, and I think, overall, Rescript the Story You’re Telling Yourself is a positive boon to any self-help bookshelf to empower readers to start removing that negative voice in their heads.
