“Unbelievably effective, and everyone can do it. Instantaneous change and you don’t even need to leave the office.” —Joel Greenblatt, author of The New York Times bestseller The Little Book that Beats the Market
“Bob Litwin’s written a wonderful book about how to get more out of life and be happier. He suggests “storytelling” as a route to personal growth. His approach seems impossibly simple, but it is informed by years of work, practice, and living a full life as a husband, father, champion tennis pro and corporate coach. The message is that we need to change the stories we’ve been telling ourselves about who we are, and replace them with stories about who we hope to become. This is a very original and user friendly book, with dozens of anecdotes about the author and the people with whom he’s worked. From mindfulness to gratitude journals to mentors to naps, Litwin coaches us through this process with enthusiasm and optimism.” —Barbara Benedek, screenwriter (The Big Chill, Pretty Woman, Sabrina)

As a result, I have seen monumental leaps in both my professional and personal life. My only regret is that I did not meet Bob until my adult life. His desire to share his experience and knowledge through Live the Best Story of Your Life is truly a gift to anyone who wants to take their life to the next level.” —Eric Wasserman, hedge fund portfolio manager
“My initial conversation with Bob was one of the most profoundly life-altering conversations I’ve ever had. He so effortlessly showed me the version of myself that I had been searching for and helped point me in the direction I’ve always wanted to go, but couldn’t. My old life story was just too much in the way, and now Bob has given me the tools to focus on my new story. Live the Best Story of Your Life is the guidebook that will change the life of anyone looking for more.” —Klinton Kraft, Partner, Digital Blue

“By working with Bob I have become much more confident in myself as a runner and in my ability to attack any challenges, mental or physical. In the Steeplechase final at the World Junior Championships in Barcelona, Spain this summer, I changed as a competitor. I was only using stories that helped me to run fast, I let go of negative thoughts and I wasn’t nervous before the race. Having a positive story has helped me do my best in any situation and allows me to be happier and more successful in my life.” —Brianna Nerud, Oregon Varsity Track, two-time member of the USA World Junior Championship team
“Bob’s teachings are genuine and sincere because he has taught and developed them himself; so he has ‘lived’ the reality and ‘walked the walk’. It’s a dream come true to be exposed to Bob at any level.” —Ed Schroback, Vietnam veteran and USTA tournament player

Litwin’s basic thesis is a simple one: often the stories which we tell ourselves about ourselves prevent us from achieving our goals or just plain old make us unhappy. Put your Old Story in writing, he says, and get to know it. Then write your New Story as the person you would like to be. His 33 Personal Coaching sessions are the tools which you can use to enable yourself to change.
As Litwin is careful to point out, not all 33 Sessions will resonate for every individual in every situation. If a particular Session does not resonate, move on, he says, maybe the next one will. My particular favorites were Celebrate Your Successes/Shrink Your Failures and Fake It ‘Til You Make It.
If you’re thinking about making a change, this book is a good place to start.
Its a book which open your mind and make you want to improve, to make you want to reach your potential.
Above all, it shows a man who is not afraid of admitting his own shortcomings and struggles and is kind and open enough to provide the rest of us with a great receipe to improve our lives, conquer our obstacles and take on a journey towards the life we want to live.
