This is a fantastic book to help you overcome the monsters that live in your mind, holding you back from being who you want to be. It has practical exercises, meditations and loads of information backed up by science. Brilliant!
That phrase "We're all fellow strugglers" resonates with me and this book has helped me to shine a light on my own monsters. This has given me practical steps to help me understand the things that hold me back and strategies to overcome them. The tone of the book is intelligent and sensitive, I felt like I was in the room with her, having a conversation.
Unlike other 'self help' books this is far from patronising. It's founded in science and shared through the lens of Hazel's personal story. Written with humility and humour, you not only connect to Hazel's story but can draw parallels from it to your own situation, whatever that may be.
We are all 'fighting' to overcome the barriers we impose on ourselves - whether that is to achieve something specific or to just be happier in general. You don't have to be boxing fan or a sportsperson to connect to the material, it's helpful in all kinds of situations, from corporate, to personal relationships.
A really enjoyable, thought provoking and genuinely helpful read.
