• Follow your heart. Live your truth. You are enough. Does this path to personal happiness lead to a dead-end? Maybe it's time to rethink your self, to look up before looking in.


Follow your heart. You do you. You are enough.

We take these slogans for granted, but what if this path to personal happiness leads to a dead-end? In Rethink Your Self, Trevin Wax encourages you to rethink some of our society’s most common assumptions about identity and the road to happiness.

Most people define their identity and purpose by first looking in (to their desires), then looking around (to express their uniqueness), and finally—maybe—looking up (to add a spiritual dimension to life). Rethink Your Self proposes a counter-intuitive approach: looking up before looking in.

It’s only when we look up to learn who we were created to be that we discover our true purpose and become our truest selves.

an excerpt from Rethink Your Self

I assume you’re not reading this book because you want me to tell you everything you want to hear, or because you want me to reaffirm everything you already believe to be true. With a title like Rethink Your Self, you’ve probably picked up this book for one of two reasons.

The first is that you may be facing some important decisions and you want to get them right. You want to be the best version of yourself you can be, and you want to fulfill whatever calling you feel is most important in your life. But you know how easy it is to fail to reach your potential, or to fail to discern your purpose in life, and the big decisions down the road frighten you a little (or maybe, a lot!). You want to be authentic and to make choices that align with the deepest part of yourself, but you wonder if the commonsense wisdom you hear everywhere else is adequate in equipping you to find and follow the best path in life.
