The power in Empowered YOUth stems from the author's authenticity. The raw, unbridled expression of how they both unlocked a lifetime of shutdown emotions is gripping and meaningful in a way that is rare. You are invited into their sacred space in order to feel the similarities to your own life. They offer you a bridge to emotional wellbeing and REAL connection that every human craves. Their book is food for the human spirit.
My favourite quote:
"A prerequisite for living a conscious life is taking personal responsibility for your thoughts, words, actions, habits, choices, and relationships. Although some things may be out of your control, what you do possess, no matter what, is the ability to choose how you respond to anything that comes your way. Taking responsibility means accepting that you have the power to create the life you truly want."
~Michael Eisen, EmPOWEREed YOUth
In their book, Empowered Youth, Michael and Jeffery Eisen have given parents and children the most valuable gift- the opportunity to learn and grow from the experience of one father/son duo. Personal narrative remains one of the most powerful avenues for empowerment, and to read the Eisen's story is to embark upon a journey of discovery- uncovering the remarkable gifts parents and children have to offer one another. Michael and Jeffery take their readers along on the most personal of journeys- through hardship and struggle and finally to mutual understanding and unconditional love.
Through Michael's story, young readers will uncover what it means to be true to one's self, to love and honor the self above all else and arrive at the realization that with unconditional self-love we are able to love others unconditionally. He offers concrete tools and exercises designed to help young readers discover their own inner truth and live this truth in their daily lives.
Jeffery's story takes readers on a journey of self-discovery from a parent's perspective. Using candid and honest prose, he relates his own journey to empowerment without pretense or disguise, and drives home the notion that the most effective parents- and the happiest people are those who live according to their own inner wisdom- discovering what brings them joy and acting as a living example to their children.Read more ›
Michael Eisen is a passionate, authentic, and charismatic speaker and he is the founder of the Youth Wellness Network which is an organization dedicated to inspiring and empowering youth across the globe to live happier and more positive lives.
Jeffrey Eisen went from being President and CEO of a multimillion dollar business to a life of awakening, empowering, and inspiring others by sharing what he has learned through his work as a life coach.
I was very curious to read this book after speaking with Michael during an interview I did with him last year. Michael tells, in the book's introduction, about what it was like to meet Louise Hay and Reid Tracy and be asked to share his story with them was interesting and inspiring to me.
The book gives an autobiographical view of the lives of Jeffery and Michael Eisen. I found it interesting to hear both sides - back and forth - how Jeffery (the Dad) saw it, what he was thinking, feeling, and learning - and how that helped Michael (the Son) to see life in some new ways, change how he felt, what he believed, and also inspired him to create the Youth Wellness Network.
The book includes life stories along with a collection of what the Eisen's feel are their most important life lessons.Read more ›
