Intentionally Becoming Different


Would you like to become the person you always wanted to be and fulfil your true potential?

Intentionally Becoming Different is an engaging self-development guide to “unfolding your true self.” Using a self-coaching approach, this unique self-help book serves as a virtual coach, setting the reader off on an exciting journey of self-reflection, self-discovery, and self-improvement. Alexander Trost blends life lessons with relevant literature as well as research insights. Every chapter concludes with a series of questions and exercises for the practical application of the theory shared.

“Alexander Trost’s book is a must read for those who choose to be the master of their fate. Wisely carved in wisdom, knowledge and experience, Trost leads us into the realm of mindfulness, effective communication, an understanding of our emotions and a life with purpose. He guides us with clarity into becoming different in order to achieve self-esteem and peak performance in leading a full, fruitful life. A mind changer.” – Lenny Ravich, Author of “Everlasting Optimism” and Co-Founder of

Intentionally becoming different is not about just being different for the sake of sticking out from the crowd or ditching some old habits. Intentionally becoming different is about gaining clarity about yourself and unleashing a lasting transformation of creating a better version of yourself. Intentionally becoming different is also not about best practices which have helped other people to become successful. Best practice sharing is not the silver bullet for getting best results. New things emerge by looking at things differently. Intentionally becoming different is about looking at yourself from a different perspective by asking questions you may have never asked yourself. It is about finding out what works best for you by intentionally changing your underlying mindsets as well as your related practices and behaviors. Find the I in your LIFE.
