The Forgotten Choice: Using Your Inner Decisions to Shape Your Outer World by Brenda Bence is a self-help book for anyone who wants to improve themselves and make their lives better at the same time. It is more than a self-help book. It is a book that will help the reader to live life on their terms, craft their present and future, and make sure their life is what they want it to be. Instead of fearing for the future, the author will help the reader to feel excited about it. She believes that if we consciously choose joy over fear and possibilities over failure, we will succeed. People only look at the obvious signs of unhappiness and never take a look at what is wrong at the core of the issue. Brenda Bence takes the reader step-by-step and gives them the tools to strengthen their self-determination, improve their decision-making abilities, and makes sure that they have all the possibilities to make the future brighter.
The author draws excellent arguments when she talks about how our individual choices have an effect on our lives. She also encourages the reader to have faith in their abilities, to trust their decisions, and not be afraid of taking a risk. I think this is an incredible way to boost the confidence of anyone who is not feeling their best at the moment. The author gently guides the reader through The Forgotten Choice, allows them to make their rhythm, and never forces anything on them. Brenda Bence also gave real-life examples and manageable exercises. The author says that having a fulfilled life is easy, but only if you want it. And once you have that fulfillment, anything is possible.
