Awaken the Person Within

Many years ago I read the best-selling book by Anthony Robbins Awaken the Giant Within. I cannot remember a great deal about it so I may be doing Mr Robbins a misservice (if so, apologies) but my recollection is that it projected the view that you can achieve virtually everything that you want if you have self-belief and the right mindset and approach. Hmmm I'm not sure about that.

But let's consider the title of his book: Awaken the Giant Within. Do you really want to awaken a giant within yourself. Wouldn't it be more preferable to awaken the person within yourself, if you haven't already done so?

What I mean by this is that you are a valuable human being without needing to be a giant. Recognise your qualities without thinking you have to aim for the sky. By all means recognise your faults too and try to do something about them if you can, but try not to be unnecessarily hard on yourself. Isn't that a more sensible approach than trying to awaken a mythical giant?

Do you agree?
