About the book:
Are you ready to open up to new levels of self-trust and self-love, to get where you want to go?
You vowed to speak up at work, and then sat silent in the meeting yet again.
You told yourself “this time the diet is going to stick,” only to watch the scale inching up.
You felt that something just wasn’t right about someone that—until you learned the hard way that your instincts were right.
“Every time you bite your tongue,” teaches Kelley Kosow, “you swallow your integrity.”
Before Kelley Kosow was a renowned life coach and CEO, she constantly second-guessed herself, let her “to-do” lists and others steer her dreams and passions, and played it “small and safe.”
Inspired by the groundbreaking principles of her renowned mentor Debbie Ford, who hand-picked Kelley to be her successor, The Integrity Advantage is Kelley’s step-by-step guide for facing the fear, shame, and false beliefs that cause us to lose our way.
Through life-changing insights, true stories, and proven strategies, this book will show you how to live on your own terms—according to you—from the inside out.
Join this transformational leader and motivational speaker to learn how to:
• Connect with your inner truth and keep it growing stronger day by day
• Level up your self-love and self-trust to get where you want to go
• Embrace the totality of who you are
• Turn the tide on mediocrity
• Break free of the “gravitational pull” of your past
• Get fearless and excited about moving outside of your comfort zone
• Stop living from your “to-do” list and start living from your “bucket” list
• Become the person you want to be
Every day, we make promises to ourselves, and then we break them. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re ready to stop fighting with yourself, start trusting your deeper wisdom, and return to wholeness, this is the book for you.
This book came into my life at the perfect time. I have been that person that keeps their mouth shut, that procrastinated, and lets others quiet my dreams. These last two years I have grown as a person quiet a bit, but I find that you need to know and own where you have been in order to keep moving forward. That is something that Kosow teaches us in this book. The book is broken down into three parts. In Part 1 Kosow explains her definition of integrity and what living in integrity is all about. Wow! In this part we look into ourselves and the people that we have let into our lives. It was eye-opening for me and it also helped me accept my truth. In Part Two seven steps are introduced that aid in digging deep inside and finding out what negative thoughts and beliefs have shaped you and your integrity. This is a deep cleansing section because once you discover those things you can fully move onto living a complete and whole life. Part Three is about actually creating what you want in the world outside of you. Five steps are introduced that help clear out clutter, chaos, or contradictions. Now you can use the tools you have learned to align your true core values, truths and deepest desires and manifest them in your life. I know, this is a lot! Kosow doesn’t just leave you hanging either. The book concludes with a sort of maintenance program to protect your integrity and stop compromising.
That being said, this book can be used as manual to get you finally living the life you want without compromising you. So many times we stay silent and are afraid of our own greatest. We should not be afraid to shine and do so without compromise. This isn’t just a book to read and set aside. It is as I said a manual and something that you will reference throughout your life.
