Change the Way You See Yourself
Change the Way You See Yourself: Through Asset-Based Thinking is the name of the latest book by Kathy Cramer and Hank Wasiak with “asset-based thinking” at the core (or ABT for short). ABT is about leveraging your assets (what you’ve got) versus dwelling on your deficits (what you may be lacking).
Their first book was called Change the Way You See Everything and introduced the topic of ABT. The new book helps you to use ABT to help you tap into your own personal source of power, how to influence and figure out your own “Mighty Cause.”
Change the Way You See Yourself is the featured title as part of the Post2Post Virtual Book Tour that kicks off on this site on Monday, May 26th.
Below are two things… (1) The tour schedule with links and (2) a survey to help you figure out how strong of an asset-based thinker YOU are!
The good news… if you score lower, the book provides you with what it takes to be an asset-based thinker and figure out your Mighty Cause!
Learn about the book by reading posts on the following websites next week.
