Be-The-Hero by Noah Blumenthal

In this post, I'm going to talk a little about this life changing book that I have recently read, and encourage readers of this blog to buy this book and keep it in your 'precious posessions' list.

This book can empower you to change your life in 3 different ways. It teaches you how to reframe your thinking, to begin to tell different 'stories'. It teaches you how to change from being the 'victim' to a 'hero'.

The first part is about how we view people. Viewing people in a negative way, meaning telling 'victim' stories, will only make everyone feel bitter. But if we begin to tell 'hero' stories, and begin to empathize with the person, the effects can be amazing.

Second part is about telling 'hero' stories about what we have, and feel gratitude for it, rather than telling 'victim' stories, and feel jealousy and envy towards others.

Third part is about how the hero sees hope, and begin to take action.

So this book teaches us how to bring out the hero in each of us, and begin reshaping our lives. It is written in an ingenious way, from the point of view of a fictional character as he faces life challenges, rather than bold bullet points and underlined sub-headings.

All in all, this book is a must read. It has given me much inspiration and I strongly recommend you to read it as well.
