by |November 18, 2010

In Treasure Yourself, international supermodel Miranda Kerr offers her own view on how her generation and those following can achieve greater health and happiness. Miranda believes that one of the most powerful tools to facilitate change is positive affirmation and she has collected over 100 affirmations from some of the world’s most inspirational authors including Louise L. Hay, Wayne W. Dyer, Deepak Chopra and many more. (buy Treasure Yourself here)

The book begins with a lovely parable that teaches that sometimes, challenges and struggles are exactly what we need in our lives; that we should not see every struggle and challenge as a negative because just as a caterpillar has to struggle out of its cocoon, it can then open its wings and fly …

‘I wish to share my inspiration with you, so that you will treasure and believe in yourself, have faith in your abilities, accept who you are and uncover your own unique gifts. We all have wings, but it is up to each one of us to have the courage to fly. My hope is that these words and the affirmations included will help empower you to reach for your dreams even in difficult times. With action, anything in life is possible’. Miranda Kerr

Miranda Kerr is one of the world’s top ten best paid supermodels. She is an advocate for Wildlife Warriors Worldwide and Children International. She practices Nichiren Buddhism and has her own skincare line. She currently lives in Sydney, Australia.

I wonder if these quotes are included:

Ignorance gives one a large range of probabilities. George Eliot in Daniel Deronda

Happiness in intelligent people is the rarest thing I know. Ernest Hemingway

To be stupid, selfish, and have good health are three requirements for happiness, though if stupidity is lacking, all is lost. Gustave Flaubert

All you need in this life is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure. Mark Twain

    It’s easy to ‘treasure yourself’ when you’re a Victoria’s Secret model. I hope this stays out of the hands of impressionable young girls.

      Would be great if you actually read the book before making such a statement.

      I really don’t think you have a righto to say this. Miranda Kerr is one of the few Angels who put forth an effort to make young teenagers feel like they are worth something and that they have that inner Angel as well. She tells teen girls throughout her book that they have something special, and that something special makes them truly beautiful. I think she deserves the respect you obviously refused to give her.

      She is using her voice as a victoria secret model to help other women. I’ve read the book and she doesn’t talk about outer beauty at all, or even hers. She talks about all of our inner beauty. So before you judge, you might want to realise that she’s actually helping young girls, something that I cannot say for yourself.
