I love this book. It is inspiring, challenging, entertaining but ultimately has very powerful in helping you let go of stuff that is getting in your way of creating more of the life you want. I totally recommend it for anyone who thinks they can be their own worst enemy. You can change that with this books help.
I first came across Hazel when I interviewed her for a piece I was writing for a national newspaper and found her bright, engaging and funny so I had high hopes for this book. Despite that, it still surpassed my (high) expectations! Using real, relatable examples of problems from her own life and those of her clients, Hazel shows rather than tells the reader how to think differently and to approach everyday issues. Not only is the book very easy to read, whilst also covering a lot of ground (and offering something new on second read, I might add) it also treats the reader like an equal, not a subordinate like so many other self-help books do. Hazel doesn't profess to be a guru, just a really well qualified, articulate person who happens to have been through the immense challenge of boxing world tournaments and chronic fatigue syndrome. It's because she's so upfront about her struggles that we trust her throughout the book and that she's able to inspire with such electric force! This is the most empowering self-help book I've ever read. It well and truly stands up against the self-help giants like Tony Robbins if you ask me.
Fight is an inspiring read that promotes positive change. This book is for anyone who feels held back or stuck in their current situation. Hazel's use of examples in her own life make the book easy to understand and relatable. Unlike other self help books, she acknowledges the time and practice it takes to make change but is (along with so many of her clients), an example of how it can be done and how great it can be to live authentically.The book is filled with practical ways for us to fight our monsters, rather than just focussing on the theory alone which is incredibly empowering.This book is filled with humour, inspiring imagery and vulnerability. A fantastic read!
I hadn’t really heard of Hazel Gale before I read this book but knew she was a professional fighter. This book talks about her journey with anxiety and depression that she suffered with and how she used that to her advantage to now be a hypnotherapist to teach others how to fight their inner demons and be the person they deserve to be.
What I really like about this book is that it doesn’t preach to you and Hazel takes things slowly and gives you lots of chances to reflect upon what you have learnt through the activities. I really like the concept of mind monsters and have been using this in my daily life to try and improve my social anxiety and depression. Well done Hazel for creating a brilliant book!
