Change The Way You See Yourself - Testimonials
"In an impressive, uncomplicated manner, psychologist Cramer and advertising industry leader Wasiak show readers how constructive introspection can create positive change. Simply put, asset-based thinking involves looking at oneself and the world in terms of what's working instead of what isn't. Readers are challenged, for example, to focus on what they want and what is possible rather than what is problematic and what stands to be lost. Steps to change personal perceptions in areas like power, influence, and the future are artfully intermingled with beautiful photos, attractive sidebars, and color-highlighted text. A follow-up to the authors' Change the Way You See Everything Through Asset-Based Thinking; highly recommended ."

"Change the Way You See Yourself is a nicely written and packaged book about the power of positive thinking.
The book begins: "Asset-based thinking is a way of viewing reality. Asset-Based Thinkers embrace the positive side of life and free themselves of the deficit-based negative side (DBT.) ABT reveals how even the slightest shifts in your thinking can lead to seismic differences."
I liked how, in "Call yourself to action," the reader is encouraged to be proactive, not reactive. Being proactive means gaining control of our lives.
There are lots of photographs and white space in this attractive book. Some pages have only a couple of sentences with photographs to slow down reading and make us ponder the phrases.
For example, on the left side of one page is the following: "Showing up is a straight forward act, but it's how you show up that makes the difference...And that is not as simple as it sounds. Showing up emphatically can feel awkward at first...
On the right side of the page is a half inch strip of a photograph that runs across the page. The photograph depicts a red curtain with a face popping out. The rest of the page, along with the preceding page, is white.
This book is inspiring and uplifting.

"I was thrilled to see a second book from these authors..what I am appreciating most about Change the Way You See Yourself is the awareness it is bringing into my life. There are many simple exercises, and lots of great stories to draw attention to how my own thoughts ultimately manifest my personal happiness. I bought it for my best friend for her birthday, and she's already called me raving about it!"
