Become the Person You Were Meant to Be: Step by Step to Choice and Change by Dr. Beth Blevins Cujé offers a new strategy for coping with stress and overcoming problems

ARLINGTON, Va. (MMD Newswire) March 22, 2010 -- Become the Person You Were Meant to Be: Step by Step to Choice and Change, a new self-help guide by counselor and therapist Dr. Beth Blevins Cujé, features the author's original six-sided process for recognizing inner thoughts and feelings and making positive choices, or the choice-cube method. The author believes this method can benefit therapists as well as secular readers and believers.

According to Cujé, normal feelings of defensiveness and self-protection can be dangerous when individuals become stuck in those postures. She argues that readers can use her choice-cube method to check bodily stress, negative emotions, painful and distorted thoughts, and misdirected desires. Cujé believes once readers have an awareness of these reactions, they can learn to take responsibility for them and use her choice-cube tools and four key steps to make necessary changes.

"I came up with the choice-cube method as a predictable way to help people understand their pain and also to empower them to make choices leading to effective stress management, emotional stability, clear thinking and freedom to manage their lives," Cujé says. "I believe this book will help anyone who reads it to make positive choices and make them consistently."

Cujé's original approach to self-help seeks to answer two primary questions: "why am I this way?" and "how do I change?" The choice-cube method aims to both answer these questions and equip readers for change starting with a mental framework for self-monitoring. The book features illustrations to demonstrate key points as well as worksheets and questionnaires to assist readers in self-monitoring, choice and change.

ForeWord Clarion Reviews states, "Real-life examples lend credibility and authenticity to the program...Individuals seeking to better themselves might find that the author's insightfulness and the Choice-Cube Method work well for them."

Become the Person You Were Meant to Be: Step by Step to Choice and Change is available for sale online at and other channels.
