Becoming . . .

A personal development narrative that helps readers achieve a broader understanding of how they came to believe their perception of themselves and offers suggestions for changing that perception, ultimately leading to a higher level of confidence, happiness, and personal freedom and peace.


Becoming . . . is the handbook for life — packed full of humorous and engaging stories that will teach you how to grow into the person you are destined to be.”

~ Jamie


Belief systems are individual and subjective.  Without understanding their origins, we become stuck in patterns and cycles; there is difficulty moving forward.  Becoming . . . acts as a mirror, a guide for those of us who could use some help figuring out why we find it so difficult to extricate ourselves from the negative situations life throws our way, and why we seem to keep repeating mistakes we already know, at some basic level, how to avoid.

Through the exploration of self-perception and the factors that influence the way we live and behave, we can rise above fixed patterns and transform the self.  Employing the common-sense wisdom of people with whom we are familiar and trust, like Oprah, Dr. Phil, Dr. Wayne Dyer, and others, Mierop maps out ways to avoid the encumbrances with which negative experiences and self-doubt often imprison us.

Let us create the lives we were born to live – it’s our time.

Becoming . . . is offered in hardcover, paperback and ebook at, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, for order from over 35,000 book retailers worldwide and electronically for Kindle, Nook, iTunes, Google and Kobo.


Editorial Review

An uncited quote often attributed to Anaïs Nin suggests:

We do not see things as they are, we see things as we are.

In his book Becoming . . . , motivational speaker and life coach, Jack Mierop, argues that we are able to change our perception through rigorous self-examination of the personal theories that have long since become implicit aspects of our personality. Furthermore, by changing—or at the very least explicitly re-evaluating—those theories we can better take control of our lives and change the world around us, or at least our experience of it. Through self-awareness, we can achieve growth. Through the recognition of choice, we can better take personal responsibility for our own behavior so as to better captain our own souls (as William Ernest Henley might put it).

It is a good read. The writing is lucid, engaging, and straightforward. One can tell by the even, confident tone that the author is an individual who understands how to speak to diverse groups of people and get his point across. He makes good use of humor, storytelling, and biography. The chapters follow a logical progression, and what he has to say makes sense. There is very little in the way of “oogly-boogly new age nonsense” although he does briefly wander into The Law of Attraction/The Secret territory near the end of the manuscript—thankfully this is not a crucial element to his thesis.

Mr. Mierop should be very proud indeed with what he has accomplished.

Amazon Review

They are able because they think they are able. ~ Virgil

Have you ever stopped and wonder why people think and act the way that they do? Or even, have you ever stopped and asked why you think and act the way you do? Not many people really have… Well, I haven’t either. This book has brought this to my attention. It reveals to you how and why you think and act in the ways that you do; showing the mechanisms that dictate your interpretations of the world.

I have learned much from this read, and I was reminded of beliefs that I forgot. One belief that had a profound effect on me was that every single human being on this planet, including myself, is narrow-minded… That is, we all believe that our beliefs are correct and everyone else’s is wrong. However, that is not the case. We believe our beliefs are right because we were “conditioned” to believe so, and they have worked for us thus far. Whereas, another person can have different beliefs, but those have worked for him/her thus far. We are all different.

According to Jack, “A thought, or a set of thoughts, is what separates us from another person.” That is a very true fact. With that said, after reading Becoming . . . , I now view myself and the people around me very differently. I used to say that those around me are weird, strange, and odd, but that’s because they don’t view the world as I do and I don’t see as they do. In the end, all our judgements about others are invalid. This is a little piece of the book that particularly stood out to me.

I enjoyed every aspect and every chapter of this book. It made me laugh, think, and cry. The joyful kind of crying.

Open your mind. The world is complex and complicated, and it frustrates all of us. Why allow this to happen to us? Why not improve your life for the better? Why sulk around and view the world in a negative light? It is what it is. If you want to improve your life, THIS BOOK IS A MUST-READ. Or, if you want to just read an amazing literary piece, THIS BOOK IS A MUST READ.

Becoming . . . by Jack Mierop will change, or improve, your view of the world around you. You will lead and live a much happier life with a little Jack in your life, “Jack up your life” No, I am not referring to Jack Daniels. It doesn’t work as well as this book. I know this by experience. Anyway! Buy this book and read it, and then spread the word! Get Jack in everyone’s life. It definitely will make the world a better place, one person at a time.

P.S. Thank you, Jack, for writing such a great book. I am expecting a sequel! Just like those Twilight books, but for self-improvement! By the way, I have never read Twilight and never will. haha
