The Heart of the Matter: A Workbook and Guide to Finding Your Way Back to Self-Love by Joffre McClung is a groundbreaking work in the area of personal development and success, a book that offers readers the one important thing they need to succeed in personal life and in business. There have been a lot of books on achieving success and personal transformation, but many of such books talk about techniques that readers can use to get where they want to be - some of these include changing their mindset, practicing the law of attraction, and many others. In her no-nonsense style, McClung challenges readers to do the one hard and essential thing that guarantees success - to love themselves. But what does self-love have to do with success in any way?

Filled with powerful insights and exercises, this book combines traditional Eastern philosophy with Western thought to guide readers on the path towards self-actualization. Articulating with confidence, the author unveils what readers need to do to fully become present in themselves, embracing themselves, and redefining their dreams. This book will help readers to develop a positive and powerful relationship with themselves, because every journey towards success begins at home.

I felt different — extremely different — after reading this book because it contains the message I needed to hear. We have been taught by some teachers to feel guilty about loving ourselves, something seen in popular quarters as selfish, but the author opened my eyes to the truth that any love flows from the love we have for ourselves and that it is important to invest in who we are. The Heart of the Matter: A Workbook and Guide to Finding Your Way Back to Self-Love is a compelling message that will set readers on a new path of hope, a gift that must be passed on. Can’t recommend it enough!


Enjoyed reading the this.
