Publisher's Summary

Are you stuck? Is the pain of life sucking you down into anxiety and depression? Maybe, you've tried therapy and had little success? Terrified of your own pain inside? Been stuffing it down and running from it for decades? Unmotivated, depressed, or anxiety-ridden? Have the voices of parents plaguing your brain? Do you wrestle with not even knowing who you really are, anymore? Do you desire to find peace, purpose, power, clarity, happiness, and true aliveness? 

What you're feeling is a deep longing of the soul! And, we need to talk! That's the purpose of this book: a real conversation about what is causing all of these problems and unrest in your soul. 

I wrote this book specifically to help you do this stuff yourself or to augment your counseling. For, until the pain, fears, and BS beliefs you've been taught about you are out of you, they're still in you. But first, you must understand: One of the core truths of this book is that trying to change behaviors never changes behaviors, long term. Until there is a fundamental shift in the deep-down, core beliefs driving the behaviors, no changes will ever stick. 

Most importantly, the beliefs driving your life are neither visible to you (which is why you've never been able to make lasting changes or even fully identify the problem), nor were they ever chosen by you. Your depression and anxiety are, at their root, the result of a life disconnected from your soul - your own true self, which has been waiting for decades, deep inside, to be rediscovered. 

In this book, I reconnect you to your true voice, free you from the pain and fears that dog you, and give you the courage to finally experience true aliveness, lasting joy, inner peace, vivid clarity, inner power, and your own life's purpose.

great message overall. Religious book

Book is very Christian & I wasn't expecting it. When I saw the advertising for this book on TikTok It was motivating and inspirational. As I started reading it. It was extremely religious and off-putting for my personally. So I could get past the first chapter. I am sure it is a great book for others. Just not for me.

Caution

Yes. There are a few golden nuggets in his book. However, the writer and narrator could not be more arrogant. He repeats a lot. He also blames parents, no matter what their parenting skills, for every problem every person on the planet has. I tried really hard to finish the book but could only get past hour nine. If you got something out of it great but not me. Even the good stuff is info you can find in many, many other self help books.

Love/ Hate

His contemporary language was difficult to accept. The metaphors were sometimes corny or clumsy. however his historical knowledge and extensive vocabulary were spot on.
the pearls of wisdom which he dropped in this book hit right at the core of my being I will be buying the hard copy of the book to go through an underline and find those pearls again. I will recommend this book with several cautions to those readers who might be offended but helped greatly by the words that he put forth.

Some parts are great

Some parts are great! Some parts are puke. Some of the advice is unrealistic and does not cover the full extent to situations. Some of it is really good stuff though and I think overall it’s an okay listen for those that want a different perspective on certain life issues and thinking patterns.

A life changer

When I first was aquatinted with Sven on tick tock, I knew immediately there was something different and special bout this badass counselor… and after reading this book all of what I thought about him and his message became reality.

This book is a life changer. After being betrayed and cheated on by my husband I was lost, I felt broken, felt so unaware, negativity has taken over my life… once I started not just listening to the book but engaging, taking notes, journaling assignments and listening to the music, suddenly I started an awakening into feeling whole again.

I was no longer feeling broken, or stuck in these negative core beliefs that this trauma had reintroduced me too from my past. This book, was the BOOM and kick in the ass I needed to jump start my healing journey… now the sky is the limit and I am free of negative emotions bc I let them go, free from the neg core beliefs that we’re playing over an over in my head… I’m free. I’m Worth it and I am whole again.
