Growing into You is the book that will change how you perceive yourself, within the boundaries of the life you’ve created. Do you feel like there must be more to life? Do you perceive having done everything right, yet something is still missing?

Perhaps you’ve forgotten who you truly are, deep down, beyond all societal conditioning.

Everyone has a unique story. How can you become the best version of yourself and live your greatest life? Perhaps the answer does not lie within your story, but rather what you make of it. Uncover your unique path to a fulfilling existence.

Self-empowerment triumph

There are few “self-help” titles these days that really hit the message home. This, however, left me in an inspired state of awe, ready to tackle the issues in my life. 5/5 if you’re looking for a title in your library for heightened self-awareness.

Great message for many!

I loved this book. It's like a little gem I can carry around with me, and listen to different parts whenever I need a boost of self-esteem, self-love or just a sense of peace. Everyone should read at least one book like this. Put together in an informative way, easy to follow and full of friendly and loving guidance, I'll be recommending this book to friends and family!

A brand new me!!!

This is a such inspirational book. This book is helping me to self reflect, breath, stay grounded and reconnect with myself. In the world we live in everything is so fast pace we often lose the purpose why we are here, we forget what is our priority. Now I am ready to grow with a positive attitude, to slow down and put my self first and love myself, because once I master at loving myself I can start showing love to others.

Powerful, Liberating and Insightful

Bought this as I've had a lot of downtime with COVID, and found myself slipping into destructive habits and thought patterns I began to identify as ego mechanisms. Part of the issue was that I had no sense of guidance, or support in rediscovering the part of myself I felt was representative of my true passions and joys. Growing Into You not only helps as a guidance system, or North Star back to your true self, but it helps you identify and step away from destructive habits and thought patterns at the same time.

Since Listening, I've found myself discovering passions and interests I'd abandoned one ago, along with achieving that inner sense of peace and clarity that seemed to be absent for so long. The author is clearly well versed in the subject, and does an excellent job of breaking down each concept and strategy. The narrator is easy to understand and engaging, without being too intense.

Would recommend to anyone looking to get back to their true selves, who wants to break away from distracting and destructive thoughts and habits.

I was absolutely taken aback.

This is an excellent reference book that I could go to again and again. I've written a few points that I'd like to include in my daily routine, as well as remember the positive messages in this book. I've learned how to genuinely grow into my actual self just by listening to this book.

If your looking to take back control of your life this is the perfect boost & guide to get you on track! So incredibly grateful for your work.

Excellent Book on Helping You Live Your Authentic Self

For some of us, this past year has been an excellent opportunity to reflect on where we are in life, what’s truly important and if we’re living our authentic self. If you’re one of these people and want a well laid out process to discover who you are and who you want to be (plus how to get there) then this will be a highly useful audiobook for you to listen to!

Thought provoking

I have always struggled with my sense of self. being the youngest of 5 siblings , I get treated as the baby of the family. Now that I have my own gown up children, I still become that baby of the family at family get -togethers My opinion doesn't really matter, never taken seriously...

I have been practising being more forthcoming, voicing my opinion but I feel I need more, and this book has given me exactly that.

The author has discussed/explained and given tips to being a true and authentic self. Its not going to be easy but I can't wait to try out the advice.
I would recommend this book to anyone trying to find their true self.

The essential growing in life!

Self-growth is vital in life; some months ago, during the pandemic isolation, I felt lost in life. The book "Growing into You" helped me heal and identify my inner wounds to connect with myself. I highly recommend it!

Fantastic book for modern living

Y.D Gardens is a star

This is the second book I have listened to by her and this one over delivers. Self compassion and authentic growth is a tricky area which can fall into wishy washy territory but he structure of this one was one point. The author's life experiences are extremely valuable, and you will be taken by the hand and led down a journey of self discovery.

Fantastic book and very useful

I have been in a self-exploration journey lately and I really enjoyed listening to this audiobook. It has helped me think critically of my life and how I truly want my life story to be. I really enjoyed listening to the author talk about following our own gut feeling, as I think as humans we have somewhat lost that. Great book and would highly recommend.

Inspiring and motivating

Sense of self-worth is so important that many people could forget to develop. They just follow others' expectations but forget what they really want. This insightful book reminds people to introspect themselves and find their potentials. Highly recommended!
