A finalist for the MS Society Books for a Better Life Award, Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow has sold nearly 70,000 copies in hardcover. The much-anticipated paperback edition comes with a new preface from Casey who continues to be an active participant in helping others heal through recovery.Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow suggests that we have only two real choices in life. The first is to fall into despair, become numb, and let fear have its way with us. The second is to open our hearts to those around us, to heal ourselves and each other by changing how we respond in every interaction. We cannot change a person. We often cannot change a situation. We can change how we react. We can learn to act out of our own hearts rather than to react in hurt or anger. We can remember we are not in control. When we stop focusing on problems, solutions tend to appear.Organized around 12 very simple steps, this book gives readers the tools to find within them the positive, peaceful response to every curve ball life throws at them.Replaces ISBN 9781573242134.Change Your Mind and Your Life Will Follow tells truth and tells it well.
