SUMMARY OF MY BOOK: THE BOOK OF HEPATITIS C:
7 SIMPLE STEPS TO SHIFT FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING
In the book, “The Book of Hepatitis C: 7 Simple Strategies to Shift from Surviving to Thriving after Hepatitis C”, Marsha Lecour had an awakening after completing treatment for hepatitis C. There were so many people that wanted support during treatment and after treatment. There was a huge need in this area. The strategies in the book have been designed to support you in shifting from merely surviving to fully thriving.
Marsha had been a very successful high school teacher with 30+ years of successful teaching. She missed teaching. With her first motivational speaking gig, she shared her experience with the audience of how she had chosen with a clear commitment to live her life by design after completing 48 weeks of intense medical treatment to eradicate the hepatitis C virus as a result of a blood transfusion. She felt the energy from the audience and realized in that moment that she had missed teaching. She knew right then that she wanted to support and empower others to shift from surviving to thriving in the hepatitis C community.
With her mess (hep C) as the message, she knew her passion and purpose was to provide emotional support to others through their journey with hep C. She had a lived experience of it and developed a blueprint with tools and strategies to thrive significantly.
Marsha has outlined a series of single simple strategies that can be taken one at a time: inch-by-inch life becomes a cinch. Yard-by-yard, life becomes hard.
By following each step, you are creating a blueprint to thrive with ease and joy.
The most important step is to first determine where you are right now in your journey with hepatitis C and treatment. Are you currently going through treatment? Or have you just finished treatment? And in order to share from surviving to thriving, it’s important that we find out where you are right now. Well, we want to assess where you are right now on four pillars. the physical, the mental, the spiritual, and the emotional.
Once you know where you are, then you are in a position to see in front of you where you are headed, where you want to go – your goal. Deciding to create your life after treatment and take the necessary action is very similar to deciding to take a trip and take action to reach your travel destination. Small steps get you there. You know that.
Now the next step involves building the foundation. Self-care and self-love involve the daily steps that you take consistently to care for yourself in a concrete way.
The act of self-care is essential for your wellbeing. No one is going to care for you more than you care for yourself. You actually teach others how to treat you by how you treat yourself. You need to take care of yourself first. No one else will take care of you first.
With the foundation clearly in place, the focus now turns to doing some “inner work.” Mindset can be defined as how you view your world. Some would say one can have a positive view of the world or a negative view. Having the mindset of a sick person is learned – it’s a conditioned response. You want to change that. You want to develop the mindset of someone who is healthy.
What you ingest is important. What is the best advice about nutrition? There is so much information out there about the best nutrition. It is vitally important that you ingest the best nutrition to reclaim your health and to maintain it.
Next you want to get moving. Regular physical activity is definitely a great way to feel better, gain health benefits and have fun. Regular exercise will allow you to feel better, have more energy and maybe even live longer. Starting slow and steadily is the way to go. One single simple step at a time. Bit by bit.
What are the next steps? Tracking keeps you accountable. It is automatic feedback for you in terms of where you are currently, where you are headed and what you are required to do to get there.
Working with someone like Marsha who has walked this journey provides you with a friend who will walk beside you each step of the way and provide emotional support for you to empower you fully to make that grand shift from merely surviving to fully thriving with ease, joy and fun.
