Hi everyone. Here is a question for you:
Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror and not recognized the reflection staring back at you?
You ask yourself, "who am I? How did I get here?" Following that reflection, do you cry, scream, or say negative things to yourself? It is a habit of abuse to take the emotions of your life and repeat the same habits, which will keep you stuck for a lifetime.
But...did you know...
You have the power to create your own story. Let Go.
I'm Rachel Brooks, and I'll help you move through the trauma.
Abuse can happen from others, and then we can turn around and abuse ourselves.
In my book, Chasing Perfection, I share the following:
Chasing Perfection, I reveal the life-changing steps I took to overcome depression, negative body image, and eating disorders, to break free of the past, and start living a fulfilling purpose-driven life. My no-nonsense approach, with simple personal growth principles and fitness strategies, will empower you to improve your self-confidence and change your life.
I offer you a time-tested, results-oriented plan that anybody can use to create a healthy body, a positive mindset, and a soul filled with self-love and gratitude, even if you have time constraints or have previously tried many diets and workouts and did not get the desired results.
In my inspirational and emotional story of redemption and self-love, you will learn:
How my quest for the perfect body and perfect life as a fitness competitor backfired.
Nowhere to hide, I was forced to face a past filled with secrets, lies, and self-abuse. I set out to uncover my truth and free myself from a life of limiting beliefs, fears, and extreme loss.
My personal accounts of body insecurity and self-doubt that many women will identify with, and powerful advice that will inspire you to overcome adversity and start living a healthy and happy life.
The question is, how can you be yourself?
Well, stop trying to be everything for everybody else in your life, and learn how to fulfill your own dreams - nurture positive new relationships instead of constantly trying to fix bad relationships, and start on your own path toward happiness and self-love.
As I take you through an honest and heartfelt journey, Chasing Perfection will inspire, encourage, and empower you to let go of your limiting beliefs and redefine who you are. You have the power to create your own story!
