STOP THE NASTY CRITIC INSIDE YOUR HEAD FROM CONTROLLING & LIMITING YOUR LIFE!
Are you living an old story script with the same patterns of difficult experiences or relationships? Are limiting beliefs, critical self-talk, regret, or worry holding you back? If so, you’re not alone. Many of us have an antagonizing inner voice that tells us we’re unworthy and unable to change. The voice is lying.
Author Dr. Colleen Georges knows this firsthand. A recovering self-critic and catastrophizer who once suffered with chronic panic attacks, Dr. Colleen first worked to RESCRIPT her own limiting story and has spent the last 20 years helping thousands of others to do the same.
In RESCRIPT the Story You’re Telling Yourself: The Eight Practices to Quiet Your Inner Antagonist, Amplify Your Inner Advocate, & Author a Limitless Life, Dr. Colleen guides you on a self-authorship journey using the eight practices of her RESCRIPT framework, based in Positive Psychology. You’ll discover how to:
• Identify limiting stories you’re telling yourself that are keeping you stuck.
• Quiet your Inner Antagonist quickly so it doesn’t hinder you.
• Amplify your Inner Advocate to cultivate positive thoughts and actions.
• Stop criticizing yourself, dwelling on the past, and fearing the future.
• Recognize your self-worth so you can set and achieve your goals.
LET YOUR JOURNEY TO RESCRIPT BEGIN!
Idea/Concept: Colleen Georges's RESCRIPT the Story You're Telling Yourself centers on the author's eight-part "RESCRIPT Framework," which she has designed as a guide to helping readers flip the script on the narratives they tell themselves about their own lives and selves. Georges's formulation is unique and thoroughly thought through, and she packages it with clear-eyed examples, practical strategies, helpful testimonials, and smart and accessible organization.
Prose: Georges's prose is strongest when she is in a prescriptive coaching mode, guiding readers with warmth and clarity through her RESCRIPT Framework with thorough strategies and examples. Less assured, however, are the passages at the start of most chapters where Georges discusses the debilitating tendencies in thinking that her framework addresses. Passages concerning people's general drift of mind sometimes can be vague or confusing or center on ambiguous subjects. Occasionally, the tone becomes so conversational that the prose might be transcribed from speech. Fortunately, Georges continually offers examples, metaphors, and exercises that elaborate upon her assertions, so the occasional hard-to-parse sentence usually gets clarified elsewhere in the text.
Originality: While tenets of Georges's advice are familiar at times, RESCRIPT is unique in its central framework, its many examples, its clarifying metaphors, and its exhaustive trove of strategies for changing habits of mind.
Execution: Georges is a sincere, impassioned coach who generously overstuffs her book with strong, practical, inspiring advice. "RESCRIPT" outshines many books in its genre, thanks to this dedication and thoroughness. The author also has organized the book effectively, and she makes up for the occasional weakness of the most generalized passages by getting highly, helpfully specific. That said, kicking off the introduction with a disquisition on a familiar quote from "Forrest Gump" might suggest to readers that this book is less accomplished and unique than it is.

In addition to powerful insights, Dr. Colleen also offers us facts, strategies, and quizzes that individualizes RESCRIPT to the reader. She drives home the point that we can overcome that inner antagonist that drags us down and keeps us ruminating over our flaws and past negative experiences. She also provides us with the keys to open our minds and to allow us to release “from the life limiting stories we tell ourselves.” I have only had the book a few days and i'm already on my second read.
I was so excited when I got this book! I was hooked the moment I opened it! I'm a big critic of myself and really need to work on being happy with myself. I will be writing and highlighting I'm this book. May need a new fresh clean copy when I am done.
n her book ‘RESCRIPT the Story You’re Telling Yourself’, Dr. Colleen helps you to quiet the antagonizing inner voice. Right from the introduction I was captured. Colleen paralleled the 1994 movie “Forrest Gump” in getting her message across in this book. We experience tragedies and triumphs in our lives, when we look at these experiences as Forrest Gump did we will see our life as one big box of chocolates. As you continue to read the book this statement will become clearer.
As an author, speaker and life coach myself, I find great value in learning from Colleen’s book to add more empowerment to my life and business.
