Coming Alive

Phil Stutz (and others)

From the international bestselling authors of THE TOOLS and GOOP’s resident psychotherapists comes a ground-breaking new book to help us overcome the side of us that is destructive and negative to find a deep level of happiness and fulfilment.

Just as we are all motivated and driven by a positive desire to be our best, live by our values and to follow our dreams, so too are we all held back by a negative, destructive and fear-driven side of ourselves. It is this part of us that compromises our ability to realise our potential and be truly happy – the side of us that the authors called our Part X.

We all have a Part X and we cannot get rid of it, but we can learn to manage it with the help of the four simple tools in this book. When we do this we free ourselves from whatever is holding us back to create a fulfilled life and anything we want or need to achieve becomes truly possible. The four tools in this book help break Part X’s four main negative influences in our lives, namely:

- Destructive impulses
- Exhaustion and apathy
- Negative thoughts and demoralisation
- Pain and hurt

COMING ALIVE is an inspiring, practical book to help us wake up to how we are being held back in life and to energise us to finally achieve our full potential.
