Mindset coach, best-selling author and one of the world’s top motivational speakers, Natasha Graziano, has penned an inspiring call to action in her new book. Drawing on ancient wisdom and neuroscience, Graziano has written a book that can only be called life-changing.
I’m not sure I have ever wanted to hug a book before. But after getting my hands on a copy of Natasha Graziano’s new book before it hit the shelves, this is the strange sensation I had after reading it. If you enjoyed Atomic Habits by James Clear or Tony Robbins’ book Life Force then you will be sure to love this book by Graziano.
Her new book, Be It Until You Become It: The Law of Attraction Explained Through Neuroscience and Ancient Wisdom, which is currently available for pre-order, is a beautiful mix of personal stories, trials and tribulations, and practical, genuinely valuable advice as to how you can create a better existence for yourself and become whoever you dream of being.
Reading the book, I felt encouraged, inspired, and most of all, loved. This is a book filled with love – Graziano is deeply committed to sharing her best with the world. She has a mission and vision to give everybody the possibility to create the life that they deserve.
The book’s final words, which I won’t give away in this article, are a call to action to begin a journey. The end of the book is the start of a new way of living, freshly armoured with a toolkit of lessons and wisdom to hit the road of life and attract abundance and joy, and create a life by design.
This is the power of Graziano’s work – that she encourages a life by design. So often, we feel trapped in the throws of life. We have only just begun to emerge from a global pandemic that shook humanity to its core, leaving us feeling powerless and overcome by uncertainty. From the ashes of a recent past that has left many of us battered and beaten, Graziano effortlessly equips her readers to rise like the proverbial phoenix and forge a way forward with intention, intensity and determination.
The book draws mainly on the teaching of the Law of Attraction, popularised in The Secret by Rhonda Byrne. While many authors and speakers have tried to ride on the coattails of the book, creating an esoteric, “woo-woo,” and almost cult-like understanding of the philosophy, Graziano has managed to ground the teachings practically and soundly.
Graziano offers guidance based on lessons that have stood the test of time, harnessing the teachings found in ancient wisdom and stoic practices. She doesn’t rely on that alone. Her work is impressively researched and detailed, showing how the learning etched in tomes since the Hippocratic philosophers are relevant today. Referencing cutting-edge research in neuroscience and neuroplasticity, Graziano grounds her work in the here-and-now, making it suitable for a twenty-first-century audience seeking an alternative to the prevailing pop-psychology self-help books.
The book’s scientific research on how our thoughts impact our brain physically and affect what we do daily is fascinating. While the subconscious is a powerful driver of our actions, Graziano unpacks how we can “rewire” the scripts written unconsciously, especially those from childhood.
“Our beliefs are something we can shift to align with our desires once we learn how to harness them under our conscious control,” writes Graziano. Humans are not victims of their past events and the beliefs created by them but can be powerful forces of abundance that can unlock a new narrative of expression and creation. Where you find yourself now is not where you are meant to be. We need to continuously evolve and harness our thoughts to align them with the vision we want to have of ourselves.
Graziano is honest about the beliefs she held onto in the past. Her transparency in the book is refreshing. Even though she is one of the world’s top motivational speakers, a best-selling author and a mindset coach to a community of more than 10 million people, she courageously lets us into her world and her torrid past.
In 2018, Graziano found herself homeless with her young son, selling clothing and jewelry items so she could pay for a bed in a hostel and get some food. Out of desperation, she made her way to her mother’s home soon after to find shelter, only to be faced with a potentially life-threatening illness that left her unable to care for her son alone. During this time, Graziano realised she needed to fight, promising to herself and the universe that if she made it through, she would devote herself to serving the world and helping others overcome adversity – the same way she did.
“This book is my gift back to the world,” Graziano says in a recent interview. “The book is my way to help end suffering for people, to help people live a better life, and to become their best selves to enjoy their life in every way. To be healthier, wealthier, happier, to be more confident, to have more time with their family, to make more money. Everyone should be experiencing life’s riches!”
Be It Until You Become It is a life-changing guide for personal empowerment. Graziano’s writing will inspire you to create a life beyond your wildest dreams and empower you with the tools to do so. Whether you follow her MBS Method to get into a higher state of awareness, draw on the affirmations she encourages for self-love, or spend time working on healing your inner child, you will walk away from the book a different person.
And perhaps, like me, you will end up giving it a hug.
