Juriaan Galavazi - You Are The Love

Living With Self-Confidence, Self-Respect, and Self-Esteem


Jump to: Book details | About the author | Reader's Reviews | Table of contents

A new ground-breaking book from Dr. Juriaan, author from the bestseller From Wound to Wisdom. In his new book, You Are The Love, he invites you to live with self-confidence, self-respect, and self-esteem.

You adapt. To your environment, to your parents, to your partner, to your children, friends and colleagues. You fulfill your responsibilities and obligations as best as possible, hoping you will be a good person and perhaps even happy in the future. Your desire to align with the other to be seen and appreciated is so big, that you live for the approval of others and become invisible yourself. Before you know it, you are embarking on someone else’s journey and at the same time you're taking a seat in the waiting room of your own life.

Even with the best intentions, the end result is that you often hold on to the wrong job for you, a suffocating relationship, a harmful diet and destructive beliefs and choices. And you become unaware that you are paying a very high price for this, in the form of stress, tension and mental and physical complaints.

In this situation, eating healthy food and doing more exercise are valuable steps, but difficult to maintain in practice if the underlying program doesn’t change.

The book teaches you:

  • How insecurity can help you experience more trust
  • How you can take good care of yourself, even when others find this difficult
  • How you find out what is really important to you and how you can really realize this in your life
  • How you can use the opinions of others in a way that they start working for you, instead of impeding your path
  • With free online workbook with further assignments and practical tools
  • With accompanying video’s

You Are The Love guides you towards a life with self-confidence, self-respect and self-esteem. It shows that we ignore and overrule all kinds of reflexes, out of the fear for losing something and the need to avoid uncomfortable situations. You will be able to look life straight in the eye and take the necessary steps to learn, grow and develop with curiosity.

Juriaan Galavazi is doctor and coach. Body and mind are inextricably linked and he helps people to enjoy fitness in both fields with the coaching programs. The goal is to let people experience that they have a large influence on their own well-being. In his work as a general practitioner, he has experienced that stress and a head full of thoughts can be the source of illness, and physical complaints like chronic fatigue, depression, sleeping disorders, (sports) injuries, palpitations or abdominal pains. Where the mind is not able to say No, the body will eventually show the boundaries of our choices. It is Juriaan Galavazi’s mission to guide people towards physical and mental fitness. With care and attention.
