What's your story? How does it determine your place in life? Do you have control over what you believe? Can you make your story the story you desire?

Boldly transformative yet unbelievably practical, this unique self-help book by author Greg Beckham sheds light on how what we believe, true or false, creates our lives for better or worse. Manifest Destiny: How the Stories We Tell Ourselves Shape Our Lives is the sort of book that will change your life, how you live it, and how you share your life with others.

Beckham's promising approach to self-awareness and self-actualization is a refreshing change from acceptance, denial, or years of therapy. His tactic is to help others perceive their story of themselves in an empowering way and create the future with a sense of purpose and intention that serves our well-being for --"we are the product of our stories." We have every opportunity to write our destiny and influence what the future holds.

In this book you will explore the power of your story, and learn potent and practical concepts that will help you become the author of your life! There are always at least two sides to every story. So if your current story doesn't serve you, you can be sure that there is another, equal or opposite story that will. The goal of this book is to help identify the stories harmful to your growth and well-being and to reframe, or retell, them in ways that will help make real, lasting and significant changes and breakthroughs in your life in the most harmonious way possible.

Beckham helps readers tweak their fodder to "rewrite" their story and create their destiny. He helps them understand that anything is possible by transforming the sad songs of the past and the troublesome visions of the future. He speaks of Emotional DNA, the Physics of Experience, the Feeling Cycle, Emotional Alchemy, and how each of us can best rearrange the details of our lives to make us a willing receptor for what we want. This book is wholly centered on the individual's "life story" as the underlying catalyst as to how their lives manifest. By changing our narrative to suit our specific needs, we're given the chance to change what comes next. By understanding what shapes our lives--Beckham shows readers how to get back into the driver's seat. Instead of allowing experience to shape our lives, we often allow the 'stories' of our experiences to shape our lives. The time is now--this is how your story begins.
