The beauty and brilliance of life is found within its deeper story. While we often become stuck in the challenges of the day-to-day, it’s often those struggles that provide the fuel for our development. In this book, Gael McCool explores the fifteen interrelated aspects of the self so you learn to use your natural and acquired strengths in order to handle life’s daily ups and downs. Wisdom already exists inside you. Be Wise Now is a tool to help you access that knowledge.

The lessons in Be Wise Now provide an important framework to discover more about yourself and your deeper story. As you examine and interact with your reinterpreted and redefined narrative, you’ll begin to transition from an old story to a new one. But as with most meaningful exercises, the act of self-discovery requires intention.
In this workbook, you will:
— Assess the skills, strengths, and resiliency found in your new story
— Review what you’ve learned and the gifts you’ve received along the way
— Discover what you’re grateful for in this new story
— Claim its underlying purpose and its role in your story overall
A timely message in light of a global pandemic, this book is written to acknowledge the bravery and wisdom of our most illuminated beings – our children and grandchildren. Brave Changes tells the story of Crystal, a snowflake who struggles with anxiety and fear of change - until one day she discovers her courage and not only takes the plunge but manages to save another “scaredy flake.”
“This story deftly illustrates the use of social and emotional intelligence, particularly how being afraid and anxious about change can be transformed through the beautiful power of empathy.”
