Become who you're meant to be. Then, become MORE.
Hey, reader. You're my person.
If you're obsessed with books like I am, you will love these.
A new year can be the perfect time to think about the ideal life you want to live.
I can't think of anyone better to guide you than Carl Rogers, the creator of the person-centered approach. I first came across Rogers in my social work program, and I was disappointed we didn't spend more time on his work (scratch that, any time).
To me, his theories explained how I always had tried to live my life.
He popularized the term "unconditional positive regard" as a way to validate other people's experiences. In my opinion, that's crucial if you're trying to build rapport and develop relationships. On Becoming a Person is probably his most well-known and influential book.
Ready to take your identity to the next level?
Read The Courage to Create by Rollo May.
A world-class thinker and writer, May transformed how I think about the world.
I believe anyone can be creative, that creativity is a skill you develop, just like anything else.
From the book description:
What if imagination and art are not, as many of us might think, the frosting on life but the fountainhead of human experience? What if our logic and science derive from art forms, rather than the other way around? In this trenchant volume, Rollo May helps all of us find those creative impulses that, once liberated, offer new possibilities for achievement.
