The MISOGI Method – A method for a better life

Jody B. Miller, the author of the book, inspired by her life discovered a method to bring happiness in work and life.
The book is about this method, called MISOGI. Everything is explained very clear, step-by-step.

The book is very well written and has five parts. Part one explains, “What is MISOGI and where does it come from”. Part two presents “The benefits of a MISOGI”. Part three outlines “How to find your MISOGI”. Part four instructs you, “How to do your MISOGI” and the part five teaches, “Making it last”. Moreover, the book contains MISOGI interviews and TEDx Talk transcript.

The author discovered that “having free time to play can set you up for an exciting journey of exploration, learning, reflection, discovery self-reliance, mathematical and business prowess, emotional intelligence and openness to what the world has to offer.” Based on this idea, Jody B Miller researched and developed “The MISOGI method” several years and implemented in her life with excellent results in health, work and relationships.

Inspired by an old Japanese ritual, called MISOGI, Jody B. Miller adapted and evolved a new, modern MISOGI method. The MISOGI has rules and is something that every person can choose to be changed for the better and for the long run.

As an Application Theorist and using examples from her life, the author convincingly explains the method to increase the level of happiness, joy and love, the MISOGI method.

To understand better who you are and who you want to become, the author invites you to write your own reflections, in special places in the book. In this way, the book is an instrument to do MISOGI.

If you want to find happiness and your purpose in your life, then you should choose to do a MISOGI. That means that you need to accept challenging yourself outside the outer most limits of your comfort zone.

To find your MISOGI, you must go through a transformation process, to know you, to accept you as you are and to love you. The author guides you and helps you to understand you and find your MISOGI.

It was a pleasure to read this book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a better life and wants to become a better person. This is the reason to rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.  – Gabriela A.

Book Review of The MISOGI Method – The WAY to Achieve Lasting Happiness and Success

“Are you unhappy, stressed, or just plain bored with your life? Are you stuck in your comfort zone and wishing that you could get more out of life? If so, The MISOGI Method by Jody B. Miller is the book you need to help break you out of the ho-hum and help you achieve your dreams.”

“A MISOGI can involve your career, an athletic feat, or even one of your passions, such as art, nature, culture, etc. It should be something that feels crazy and scary, but at the same time, thinking about it should be exciting. The benefits of a MISOGI? According to Miller, achieving a MISOGI, or even coming close, will help you feel more alive, happy, and at peace with the world around you. By taking such a radical step, you expand your comfort zone, so striving to achieve more comes easier to you in the future.”

“Each section has clearly laid out details, examples, and exercises to go through to complete each step necessary to achieve your MISOGI. In some cases, there are multiple choices of ways to complete a task, since different methods may work for different readers. There are places to record your progress and your reflections after completing each step. Included along with the text of the manual are transcripts of several interviews that Miller has done with people who have completed various types of MISOGIs, as well as the transcript of Miller’s TEDx talk regarding her MISOGI method. A large list of resources is included at the end of the book for the reader who would like to do further research.”

“Throughout the book, the author uses a friendly tone with lots of personal asides, which makes the book feel more like a conversation and less like a lecture. I think the tone worked well for the subject matter. Miller’s attitude is positive and encouraging that anyone can conceive of, complete, and benefit from their own MISOGI.”
