What we have here is a powerful book on what happens when we try toaccomplish...... anything! There is a process involved and there arepatterns we follow every single time. We would be fools to avoid themand thus Make Lasting Changes is a lucky find for those who find it.
From the beginning, there were historical models of behavior change thatalready gave a guideline to approach situations better. In my real life(off the internet) I am striving for a big goal of weight loss. How much weight? It's a lot, so much that I feel uncomfortable typing it orsaying it out loud sometimes still.
And now I can see this mightbe detrimental how I feel about it! Peter's book sheds light on whatkeeps us back from changing and one of the big ones is ego protectionand public shame and the like. That's me to a T right at the moment. But then another chapter after that is about starting and feeling that youmust while you feel unready, to the tune of only 70% ready. Frighteningbut it really resonates with me, and I think this book will be a strongally in losing my weight. Nothing matters but the behavior itself, notthe intention - from another chapter again!
Too good, give it a read and see the ways you can apply this framework to your life. - Reader
Why would I make this claim? Not only because I'm a big fan of the authorPeter Hollins, who seems to write insightfully on a wide range oftopics. But no, this is actually something that "self development" isall about. It is about making changes, right? But there is usually someweird angle that disguises what we are trying to accomplish in justtrying to make lasting changes.
Enter the book Make LastingChanges. As I said this is what 95% of self improvement books are about. There's a change that is desired, so how do you reach it? While thisbook doesn't go into all the specific changes you might want, itdefiantly does go into what underlies and surrounds change in behaviorand habit.
From chapters on obstacles, motivations, gettingstarted, getting momentum (my fave), correcting course (most novelconcept for me), the environment, and design flaws... thorough job withan emphasis on what is sustainable lasting. Overall a great frameworkfor trying to accomplish any goal you have. One of the best books I'veread on this topic and destined to be bookmarked and highlighted. - Reader

Every day I wake up knowing this one thing needs to change. And every day I face that change, valiantly, and I tell myself I'm going to...hm. And the next thing I know I'm doing everything else in my life that has nothing to do with changing myself. I clean my house. I reply to every person with an email in my inbox. I clean my house again. I decide that I REALLY need to get signed up for that one thing I wasn't really interested in, but now I am, because it's, um, a good idea?
So when I say that I feel, SO strongly, that this book gave me the tools I need to finally stop procrastinating, and finally focus, and finally change my life...I really mean it. The plan in THIS book is actually doable. It's slow, meaning not weeks, not months, but years, and do I think I can finally manage my changes if I have years? Yes I do! But while lasting change actually does take that long, progress starts now, today, and that is a really great feeling.
I just can't possibly recommend this book enough. Feeling overwhelmed? Afraid of failure like I am? No idea how to get started? This book lays everything out in an easily understood format, that ultimately left me with the idea that I can do this. I can FINALLY do this. This isn't a book that expects you to have an epiphany, and wake up the next day a brand-new person, because news flash: that isn't how it happens. I know, I've been there.
This is a book that offers a slow, realistic plan that will lead to permanent change, and I absolutely recommend it to anyone who knows they need that change, but don't know how to manage it. It was a wonderful read!!!
