Rise Higher by Aureen M Monteiro is a non-fiction self-help guide aimed at educating women on the author's nine steps to overcome any challenge, become the leader she deserves to be, and do what she loves. The book is broken down into three parts. Part one covers the best personality trait on the planet and how to build it; part two solidifies its importance and puts the reader in a mindset to visualize their lives with and without; and part three dives into the nine steps to build this personality trait. Monteiro provides real-life examples and stories of individuals who have been successful and who have not, her own experiences, and reflective points throughout the book where a reader completes an exercise to personalize their own unique journey.

First of all, I love a book that is written for women, by a woman. This love is compounded when the purpose of the book is to empower women, and for that Aureen M Monteiro is ahead of the game with Rise Higher. Monteiro doesn't just rattle off nine things you should be doing; she addresses common issues and begins to build on the slow process of combating them. Change doesn't happen overnight but Monteiro gives her readers the best roadmap to get there. The chapter that resonated with me the most was chapter fourteen, Minimize Reliance on External Triggers. Two work colleagues have very different outlooks and their quality of life is directly impacted in both the physical and emotional sense. It isn't until one is left in a near-crippling situation that they are able to understand what change desperately needs to happen. This is a good book with really excellent points and is exactly the type of reading material I would want to pass on to my teen daughter as well.

Have you always wanted to achieve goals and transform your life but have no idea where to start? Do you believe that your current situation will never change because of the present circumstances you find yourself in? Using the techniques throughout Rise Higher by Aureen M Monteiro, you will begin a life-changing transformation by working on the foundation teachings of healing your mind and heart first. Aureen shares her own personal experiences and that of others to highlight how they were able to overcome huge obstacles to not only survive but thrive and achieve abundance, success, and joy. You will discover how much power you actually hold within to change your current circumstances and the actions, beliefs, and behaviors that block you from achieving your goals every time. By understanding how you are continually self-sabotaging your dreams, you will uncover the methods that will deal with all forms of negativity. It is time to face the traps of limiting beliefs in yourself, deal effectively with toxic people, and use their negativity to your benefit. It is time to change the course of your life, seize the abundance of opportunities that surrounds you, and claim your power back.

Rise Higher by Aureen M Monteiro is such a thought-provoking and inspiring book on so many levels. Aureen's perception of self-defeating dialogue is so astute. The questions you are asked to complete really challenge every negative belief you hold about yourself and insist you prove their validity. She understands how we can manipulate the truth so we can stay in our comfort zone of believing our current circumstances are what we deserve. This is an absolute treasure chest of information, advice, techniques, and questionnaires. I loved the sections on visualization and dealing with toxic people that surround you. It is all very well challenging your own negativity but if you are dealing with negativity from others on a daily basis, this can be overwhelming. Aureen understands this and helps you turn their pessimism into a means to drive you forward. The personal accounts throughout and the analogies (especially the one regarding the pearl) were powerful. The questionnaires throughout are very clever as they really make you dig deep into your core belief systems and are a perfect springboard to unleash your imagination into the infinite possibilities open to you. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Absolutely superb.

The empowerment of women is a key element to achieve progress not only for themselves but in all areas of the economic strata. Aureen M. Monteiro guides women on how to increase their ability to shape their life towards success and achieving goals in Rise Higher: 9 Steps for a woman to overcome any challenge, become the Leader she deserves to be and Do what she loves. This self-help book is pretty straightforward. It begins by discussing the best type of personality trait that focuses on the virtue of grit, and how it makes some people more successful than others. The nine steps provided are calls to action on regulating and developing your attention, emotion, and behavior. It is a goal framework that suggests practical and proven directions on goal achievement.

Consider Rise Higher as a more affordable alternative to hiring a life coach. You can read other self-help books and then move on with your life. But Ms. Monteiro has applied this advice on her own, and she does not pretend to play at a self-help policy. This is the type of book that requires internalization and honest self-assessment in order for you to arrive at the conclusion that it is worth its weight in gold. Rise Higher gives a reading experience that makes you feel the need to change, and it is a good sign that this book can help. It gives you a sense of appreciation for the efficacy of effort and it is consistent with the goals of identity formation that lead women to specifically point out what they want to get out of life.
