This is my official first book club pick for 2016. I feel like I’m starting the DAMY Health Members Book Club off with a bang!
Introducing Outwitting the Devil: The Secret to Freedom and Success by Napoleon Hill.
Don’t be afraid of the title. By “Devil” we’re not talking about an external evil force. It’s more referring to the ego vs your higher self.
I personally adore this conversation as I am continually trying to recognize the difference between my ego (fearful smaller self) and my higher true self.
This book is great for those of us who don’t have a huge amount of time as you can just pick it up and read a bit at a time.
I personally adore Napoleon Hill. You may know him from his fiercely popular book – Think and Grow Rich. This book shifted many of my perceptions when I first started on my journey of personal realization.
The reason I think this would be a great pick for our members is because many of us are dealing with an internal struggle. The struggle can be our self-talk, our negative projections and/or things as annoying and simple as the struggle to just choose healthy options for ourselves.
I think we all have had that moment in life where there is a little devil on our should encouraging us to skip that workout, gossip about that friend or co-worker or eat that extra slice of cake. This book, for me, puts a unique spin on what it would be like to have a conversation with that internal “devil”.
Prepare yourself for ah-ha moments.
*Note to Members – I want to remind you that the book club is completely optional and not necessary. If this speaks to you and interests you I encourage you to get the book and read it at your leisure.
If you want to add conversations there is a space to do so on the Members Only Forum. You can also share notes there to me about the book if you wish.
