The Perfect You: A Blueprint for Identity by Caroline Leaf



The Perfect You: A Blueprint for Identity

There are a lot of personality tests out there designed to label you and put you in a particular box. But Dr. Caroline Leaf says there's much more to you than a personality profile can capture. In fact, you cannot be categorized! 
In this fascinating book, she takes readers through seven steps to rediscover and unlock their unique I-Factor--the brilliantly original way each person thinks, feels, relates, and makes choices--freeing them from comparison, envy, and jealousy, which destroy brain tissue. Readers learn to be aware of what's going on in their own minds and bodies, to lean in to their own experience rather than trying to forcefully change it, and to redefine what success means to them. Released from the suffocating box of expectations, they'll embrace their true identity and develop a clear sense of divine purpose in their lives. 
Knowing and understanding our identity empowers our choices. Unlocking one's I-Factor is not optional--it is essential.

My Thoughts:
Dr. Caroline Leaf is one of my favorite authors. I don't always understand everything about Quantum phyics, neuroplasticity, neurogenesis and epigenitics in somewhat easy to understand way. I love what she has to say about changing your mind, which changes your thinking and DNA. One of my favorite quotes in the book is " it is important to remember that our thinking changes the structure of our brains because our minds are separate separate from our brains." In " The Perfect You" Dr. Leaf has yet again published another amazing book about how we can live out our perfect blueprint of the person that God has called us to be. This book gives you the principles and tools to discover the way God created you to be and then live it out! Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy. I highly recommend this book and give it 5/5 stars. 

About Dr. Caroline Leaf:
Dr. Caroline Leaf is a cognitive neuroscientist with a PhD in Communication Pathology specializing in Neuropsychology. Since the early 1980‘s she has studied and researched the Mind-Brain connection. During her years in clinical practice as a Communication Pathologist she developed tools and processes that help people develop and change their thinking and subsequent behavior. Her scientific Science of Thought techniques have transformed the lives of patients with Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), learning disabilities, emotional traumas and released the potential of thousands of young students and adults. 

She has presented her unique Switch On Your Brain with the 5-Step Learning Process® and the Metacognitive-Map™ learning tool to thousands of students worldwide.

She developed the Geodesic Learning™ theory (how we think and process information) that has been conservatively shown to increase thinking, behavioral and academic performance by 35-75%. This revolutionary theory explains the Science of Thought, stating how thoughts form, how we process information and the power of the non-conscious mind and the relationship between the non-conscious and conscious. It explains that everything you do is first a physical thought in the physical brain. You think, and then you do, which cycles back to the original thought, changing it, and the thoughts connected to it, in a dynamic interrelationship. Therefore if your thinking is toxic, then your communication and behavior are toxic, and vice versa.

She has published numerous articles in academic journals and consumer magazines and has been widely interviewed in newspapers, on radio shows, and on television shows about her research and theories.

She has her own weekly TV show called "Switch On Your Brain" airing on TBN.
