"The unexamined life is not worth living," was supposedly said by the great philosopher, Socrates. If you have ever wondered why you do or don't do, or why you act or react as you do, in any given situation, you may just find the answer in the impressive work, "Who Are You Meant to Be?" The authors Anne Dranitsaris, PhD and Heather Dranitsaris-Hilliard offer a "step-by-step process for discovering and fulfilling your true potential." How do they do this? They delve deeply into the human brain, dividing it into quadrants and further into striving styles, assessing what is an individual's predominant and associate styles. When you follow their guidelines, you can learn to be aware of your actions and evaluate your thoughts to control your reactions--a lofty and worthwhile mission. The authors' goal is to "show you how to fill the gap between what you know and what you do . . . to encourage you to experience your life instead of worrying or being afraid of what might happen if . . ."
"Who Are You Meant to Be?" has some genuine merit, addressing a basic need we all struggle with, that is, to understand the why of our situations. Why do I dread going to office parties? Why do I overeat? Why do I stay in abusive or unfulfilling relationships? If any of those questions fit your life, you will benefit by reading this comprehensive "seminar-in-a-book" which provides a thorough look at the reasons behind the actions. A fascinating look into our gray matter!
