More About the Author
I am Brooke Castillo.
I used to struggle with my weight. Now I don't. I wrote a book (If I am So Smart, Why Can't I Lose Weight) on why, and helped thousands of other women stop the struggle. It is such an honor to have been able to help.
I found a way to manage my mind in a way that keeps me happy most of the time. (Self Coaching 101) After years of therapy, self help literature and coaching,it has been the most effective thing I have done to create happiness.
As a coach, I help clients all day long find a way to live that feels like a contribution. It Was Always Meant to Happen that Way is a collection of that work.
WHAT I HAVE LEARNED
Our thoughts create our reality- good or bad
We can change our thoughts
There are many tools that work effectively on changing thoughts
Our thoughts drive our actions
There is nothing we truly want that we can't have
It isn't what we get to do-but who we get to be
All of our power is in this moment right now,
but that doesn't mean we don't focus on the future in this powerful moment
It has to be fun or forget it
I take what I learn and apply it in a way that resonates
I simplify the lessons that work most effectively
I teach the lessons to others
I focus on my strengths
I never apologize for the truth
I believe everyone deserves heaps of joy in this lifetime
I know the past has no power over me
I live a life knowing that everything I want is within me now
I realize that intelligence is not just in the mind
I believe it is possible to be spiritually aligned and wealthy
I strive for the impossible so I can call on a strength greater than myself
I believe I was put on the planet to coach, teach, and Be
I believe my happiness is the best gift I have to give my children
I know my husband is the best thing that ever happened to me as a human
I am intense and focused
I love my clients and feel it is a privilege to work with them-not the other way around
I am not better than you and I am not worse than you
Reading is as important to me as showering (sometimes more so)
Top Customer Reviews
I have first hand experience with Brooke's program, having been her client for 4 months last year and having read the book. Brooke is more than a coach; she is an amazing, rockin', healing, intuitive wonder. She has her finger on the pulse of where its at with weight loss; where we have socially evolved to and if you do what she says, you will succeed, no ifs ands or buts. She will support you every step of the way. I was so pleased to read her book and see how she was able to really capture the program so precisely in the book. Its a wonderful tool, full of her bright energy and power, and it will serve its users well. The work is deep and simple and real. Brooke will take you to where you want to go! Good luck and blessings!

Excellent book. Not a run-of-the mill diet book but more a diet coaching book. It helped me conquer my all-or-nothing thinking that kept me trapped in yo-yo dieting for years.Published 6 months ago by DY
