Change Your Destiny And Return To Power

Wanna Choy Author Interview

Return to Power tells your inspirational story of overcoming adversity and stepping out from the background after years of feeling insignificant. Why was this an important book for you to write?

I wrote this book because I wanted to give those who feel like they are stuck in the background a voice. To those wonderful people who, even with success in their lives, have for whatever reason been relegated to the background or are once again voiceless, those are the ones I want to help EMPOWER. I want them to feel their power and be on TOP of their game, becoming their most authentic selves.

I appreciated the candid nature with which you told your story. What was the hardest thing for you to write about?

The hardest thing to write about was the painful memories of feeling alone and not fitting in with all my classmates. My shyness held me back from pursuing my dreams. I wanted to be a journalist but without the proper support from my teachers it took me in a different direction. I settled for whatever was comfortable for me because I didn’t think I was good enough to do anything significant.

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

Some of the ideas I wanted to share in my book were of confidence, self-love, and compassion. Even though I went through a lot of challenges in life, I always hoped that one day I would conquer my demons feeling confident enough to prevent that negative inner voice from taking over. I did not grow up in a family that hugged so it was hard to feel love in that tactile way. When my dad told his friends my sister and I were not beautiful, I took that literally. For most of my life I felt shame and embarrassment when people complimented me because I couldn’t accept it. Having great teachers and mentors who were loving people helped me realize that I had to love myself first before I could love others unconditionally. If they weren’t compassionate and didn’t see potential in me, I would not have been able to see potential in others. This compassion brought me wisdom, gratitude, and an abundance of love to pursue my dreams, contribute to great causes, and pay it forward.

What is one thing you hope readers take away from your book?

The one thing I hope readers will take away from my book is to practice self-love and self-care daily so they can feel empowered to do anything their heart desires. I invested a lot of time and money into self-development so I could pursue my dreams. It took me many years. It is important to learn how to grow from a place of hurt, scarred by negative epithets, into the great human being you were meant to be by finding that inner love, removing the walls that have protected you for so long. No matter where you started in life, you can course correct and change directions any time to change your destiny and Return to Power!
