In her debut guide to practical self-love and spirituality, You Are More Than Good Enough: A Journey to Freedom, Joy, and Authentic Self-Expression, puertorriqueña Gloria Rodriguez carries us through her personal journey from fashion executive to professor, personal empowerment coach, and ultimately, author.
It is, in fact, her struggle with writer’s block and her own creative process that leads Gloria back to her essence and forces her to confront painful remnants of the past. Part memoir, part manual, You Are More Than Good Enough urges readers to release their “not good enough” fears and misgivings in an effort to create space for what Rodriguez calls “calling back our essence”.
Using Personal Narrative for Personal Transformation
A psychologist and women’s empowerment facilitator, Rodriguez uses her personal narrative to illustrate the universal themes of self-doubt and self-acceptance. By recounting her personal struggle with fear and trepidation through different moments in her personal and professional life, Gloria teaches her reader to use pain as the seed for personal transformation. From her childhood in 1959-Red Hook, Brooklyn to anecdotes from her work with women conducted through the De Almas Women’s Collective, Rodriguez caringly weaves together real life tales of transformation with practical tips, journaling exercises and meditations which she calls “Treasures of the Soul”.
An Empowering Toolkit
In a conversational voice which captures her commitment to being both teacher and student, Rodriguez prompts readers to embrace an important message that often takes a lifetime to reach some: we each have the power to transform our personal trials into triumphs. With this spirit of perseverance in tow, Rodriguez re-commits to her goals, dreams and purpose while encouraging her readers to dive into their own wells of personal power and self-fulfillment. Unpretentious and heartening, You Are More Than Good Enough is a lovingly crafted toolkit designed to help make you your most important life project!
