Most of life's most rewarding experiences involve some degree of challenge. The quality of our lives depends to a large extent on how well we meet our challenges - the ones we choose and the ones that choose us.
In this enjoyable, uplifting and informative book, self-leadership coach Eric Winters describes simple strategies backed by science to meet challenges more effectively, in professional and personal life.
In Swipe Right on Your Best Self, Eric reveals:
· the three human predicaments that cause most people to live smaller, timid lives

· the three mindsets essential for courageous action
· the seven steps to swiping right on your best self so you can meet any challenge more effectively.

This. Book. Is. Perfect.
In the acknowledgements, Winters pays tribute to his great teachers, and writes, "I've taken your ideas, mangled them and misrepresented them." Winters is my kind of guy, I think to myself. He's given himself permission to be imperfect as he summarises and disseminates their works, pulling together many themes from many great minds into a clear, cohesive package (so that we don't have to). It feels liberating.
Winters promises a book that gets straight to the point and avoids "excess padding".
It's fair to say, he definitely delivers. It pops fuel in your tank NOW and FAST (but just in case you're wanting a deeper dive, Winter finishes each chapter with easy-to-access references and links).
Each chapter is the approximate length of a blog post. Easy to digest, Winter gently slides into place foundation blocks for building “a bolder life with fewer regrets“. As I read each chapter - squeezed into moments of taking the children to extra-curricular activities, a quick snippet over my morning cup o'tea, a brief 15 minutes before bed - I found myself making subtle but impactful changes to my daily habits.
I felt connected to the reasons I would want to gift these to myself - and it felt easy. It felt- honestly - delightful.
Foundation in place, Winters gently weaves together simple, achievable steps for caring for oneself and moving towards a life of “courageous authenticity.”
I found myself thinking of people I will loan the book to. Perhaps this client? Perhaps that friend? No, first my partner. Wait, I think my teenage son. It's that kind of book. It has a little something for everyone, and reading it in today's mad world is something that even feels achievable.
In my crazy, busy life I finished it in a fortnight without it once feeling a chore, and often feeling like a gift. But if I added all the time it took to make my way through, it was maybe the length of two generous pots of tea on a relaxed Saturday afternoon.
I've earmarked about six places that I come back to because I think they are worth reminding myself of. These align to tips on framing human predicaments, quantifying a life time and practising self-compassion.
I was really impressed how the author brought all the lessons in the book together in the end. Worth it.

The way the author doesn’t labour a point is refreshing. Each chapter is in bite size portions with a little summary at the end of each of them. The reader is treated as a friend to bounce ideas around with and I was genuinely sad when I finished the book!
By the last page I actually felt buzzing and filled with excited energy! I don’t normally write reviews but OMG this book is amazing.
