The Joy of Me: New Book Explores the Art of Being Selfish

“Timeless, profound, compelling, and transforming with a new twist on the importance of self.” —Carol Guild, author of The Success Myth

“If you’re seeking more happiness, joy, fulfillment, and true inner peace, this book will show you how to do it.” —Jack Canfield, co-author of The Success Principles

We all know that it’s “wrong” to be selfish. But the truth is that being selfish can be necessary to ensure your own health and well-being. By putting ourselves first and making personal fulfillment a priority, we are better equipped to help others—by first helping ourselves.

The Joy of Me brings readers to a greater sense of self-confidence and willpower, by teaching how to focus on their own wants and needs. Using a uniquely intuitive combination of psychology and spirituality, The Joy of Me shows how to let go of false expectations, obligations, and identities you may have taken on, while embracing the true measure of your worth.

We are all capable of unconditional love, provided that we first learn to love ourselves. Let The Joy of Me will show you how!
