Publisher's Summary

Your life has a root core that, once understood, unlocks a powerful force to create the life you want. Key questions and an amazingly clear "map" are now at your fingertips so you can "live by design". In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Phil challenges you to find your "authentic self": that person you have always wanted to be, but were too distracted, busy, or scared to become. Instead, you have created a "fictional self", taking on the identity of who you believe you are supposed be. The incongruence between these two selves is what leads you to feel that your life is incomplete, unbalanced, and more difficult than it should be.
In Self Matters, Dr. Phil helps you to demystify your self-concept and learn how to reclaim your authentic self. You can learn to think beyond the excuses and fears that have masked the person you want to be. By facing the cards life has dealt you, you can relearn how to best react to them.
Self Matters is one of the most forward-thinking works on self-concept and self-esteem ever published. We get only one chance in this world. Dr. Phil tells us all how to make the most of it.
