"Mastering a Healthy Self Image is certainly a notable introduction to positive imaging...It's also a viable choice for seasoned self-esteem builders...And like all of the best authors of self-help books, Knoch has a way of making you feel that what he advocates is achievable." - Joseph Yurt, BlogCritics.org
"I have...interviewed more than a 1000 authors, and I can say without hesitation that I have not read a book as good as...Mastering a Healthy Self Image, since I read Chicken Soup for the Soul and interviewed Jack Canfield. I really believe Darrell has a big hit on his hands." --William Horan, THE SECRETS OF SUCCESS RADIO, Nassau, NY

I cried through the entire first chapter. I realized to the extent which I was feeling like a failure.
The first step to getting over this was to acknowledge it, and this book brought me to that point.
I have had personal interactions over email with the author and he is truly a generous and real man who wants to genuinely help other people. This book and his amazing gratitude coins are doing just that. If you have not heard about his coins, you absolutely must go to youtube and search for the six minute news clips which are covering the story. It will bring you to tears.
This book will give you hope when you have none and remind you that ANYBODY can make themselves into something if they just believe in themselves. It is most certainly easier said then done, but this book guides you how to do it.
I wish I had a hard copy of it, as I ordered it on Kindle.
I pray that God bless this man further and hope someday I can be an inspiration to others as he has been to me.
A strong believer that the way to happiness and contentment in life is through a healthy self image, his book, Mastering a Healthy Self Image, has as a central theme the building and retention of self-confidence. Written in an anecdotal storytelling style, he blends inspiring incidents from his life and the lives of family and friends with self help strategies. The strategies are reinforced with quotes from other self help authors' books - Zig Ziglar, often mentioned, is credited with putting Darrell Knoch on the path to high self esteem.
Chapter headings in the book include: changing your world, power of positivity, self talk, relationships, setting goals and perseverance. The methods and laws outlined to take your self esteem to the same high as the authors have been documented in easily understandable language. The Law Of Becoming appealed to me - mental evolution is largely determined by the thoughts you put into your mind; your life is what your thoughts make it. If you follow the rule and think positive, change is possible.
The fear of success syndrome, which Darrell Knoch believes paralyzes the majority of our society today, is explained as being a fear of trying. Its manifestations: rationalization and procrastination resonated with me; it's so easy not to do something in case it fails. Failure, no cause for concern, the book details how to turn your life around if it happens.
Clarity, conviction, commitment and consistency, all cited as necessary for success, are explained as: knowing what you want and who you want to be, self belief, resolute perseverance and achieving of goals. The author, an advocate for the "Four C's", stresses that with these at the forefront of your mind and actions, you are on your way to developing the kind of confidence that will make everything possible. There is no such thing as failure, just results.
The overriding message contained in Mastering a Healthy Self Image is: Believe in yourself with passion. Go out and do the things in life that really make you happy and you will be. The author, Darrell Knoch, comes across as a sincere guy who would really like to help change your life for the better.
If the going has got tough and you just can't get going, then reading Mastering a Healthy Self Image and following the advice will certainly help.
most inspiring and intelligent people. I run a Writer's Group. Therefore, I would say I am very familiar with lots of authors and I love books. There was one book I needed and I didn't know how much I needed it. I've been reading self-help books all my life. I read about self image since I was a teenager. I will candidly say that there are very erudite studies by motivational experts, psychologists, and even surgeons into the mysteries of self image.
Then there is MASTERING A HEALTHY SELF IMAGE. This is not a study of the subject. This is a living testament to self image. There has been no book written on the subject that
comes close to this one. You not only have to read the book...but you have to Pay it Forward. You will learn of Darrell's Gratitude Coins online. You will understand that
reading this book is just the beginning for you.
I cannot tell you what is in the book. I won't dare spoil the excitement of finding out what you have been missing your whole life.
If you are a psychologist, Rabbi, Priest, philosopher, or someone who wrote a book about self image....get ready for the real thing.
