Editorial Reviews

Review

Powerful practical insights that can help many to live more rewarding lives. -- Harold Bloomfield, How to Survive the Loss of a Love

Provides clear insight, compassionate understanding and practical solutions. -- Jack Canfield, Coauthor of Chicken Soup for the Soul

From the Back Cover

Self-defeating behavior is the single most common reason that people seek psychotherapy. It is a poison, preventing us from achieving the love, success and happiness we want in our lives. And what really drives us crazy is feeling we have to change and not knowing how - or knowing how but being unable to stick with change. Get Out of Your Own Way is an antidote - it explains why we sabotage ourselves, going back to childhood origins of various behaviors. More important, it offers proven steps of action to transform behavior from self-defeating to life-enhancing. With anecdotes and usable insights drawn from twenty years of psychiatric clinical practice, Dr. Mark Goulston shares ideas that have helped thousands of patients overcome pain, fear, and confusion - to approach life's challenges with dignity, wisdom, courage, and even humor. By encouraging you to reflect upon your behavior - and providing practical steps toward change that you can work into your everyday life - Get Out of Your Own Way shows you how to stop being your own worst enemy - and become your own best friend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward advice to change your self-defeating behaviors.
By Peggy on September 17, 2019
This is an easy-to-read book, with insights into how one can stop doing the things that sabotage their life (trying to change other people, being envious of others, trying to take care of everybody, procrastinating, and more). Each of the 40 specific topics are discussed fairly simply in about 3 pages which are peppered with quotes and advice. Although I didn't find much especially new in the book, I appreciated the author's straightforward counsel. As with any self-help book, the really difficultly is not in understanding what to do, but in actually implementing real change in your life. Overall, I recommend this book. Please mark if you find my review helpful. Thank you so much!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gute Zusammenfassung und sehr praktisch umsetzbar
Reviewed in Germany on March 14, 2019
Als jemand, der schon viele Bücher über Lebensoptimierung/Selbsthilfe gelesen hat, habe ich eigentlich nicht viel erwartet. Tatsächlich bringt der Autor allerdings viele Punkte, die in anderen Büchern vernachlässigt werden und erklärt Dinge, die man eigentlich weiß aber trotzdem nicht umsetzt, mit Fallbeispielen. Er analysiert die Verhaltensweisen auch und erklärt, was hinter ihnen steckt, was in der Suche nach Strategien, diese Verhalten nicht mehr zu zeigen, sehr hilfreich ist.
Sehr gut gefallen hat mir auch der klare Aufbau mit guter Struktur.
