Be the Hero: Three Powerful Ways to Overcome Challenges in Work and Life (Hardcover)

Product Description
Be the hero you want to be!
At times we all feel frustrated, stressed, or out of control. What if you could be at your best when your challenges are on the rise? Well, you can. Be the Hero introduces us to the way of the "Everyday Hero" and shows how to turn self-defeating thoughts and behavior into heroic actions. The trick is in the stories we tell ourselves.

All day long, without even realizing it, we tell ourselves dozens of stories--about other people, our situations, and ourselves--stories that shape our emotions and behavior. These stories are so powerful, they make us think and act like either a hero or a victim. Be the Hero shows you how to choose the stories that lead to personal and professional success.

In the tradition of the best storytellers, Noah Blumenthal weaves a tale that is both captivating and profound. Be the Hero is destined to become a classic.

Standing on a mountaintop in Switzerland, Jeff thought he had figured out the secret to living a great life. Eight years later he was a rising star in his company and looking forward to the birth of his first child. Then it all unraveled. Follow his extraordinary journey as he discovers what he missed on the mountain and how to recapture his success at work and in life.

A Must Have!, July 21, 2009
By Rosemary Gandolfo "Rosemary Gandolfo" (East Moriche, NY)

What an amazing book! Noah Blumethal has done it again! Noah has a gift for being able to simplify ones ability to make changes in ones life. This a quick and easy read. I believe before you get through the first 30 pages you will be able to apply the ideas that Noah shares.

Noah Blumenthal explains the difference between those people who seem to always fall victim and struggle to get by each day with those who have the same challenges yet seem to find peace no matter what. He shares with us the secret of how we can live this same life in a simple way that we can put into practice immediately!

This book also makes an excellent gift and is perfect for a book club. It inspires a real sense of community. I will also go out on a limb and say that this book has the potential to improve entire families and communities. It inspires one to "Be The Hero" and to help others "Be The Hero". If we live in a community of people living these principles we will all be much happier and successful!

Thank You Noah for this gem!
