Publisher's Summary

Nobody is born insecure, angry, bored, or depressed. The fact is, happiness is our natural state and, as psychologist Dr. Joseph J. Luciani explains in this warm, witty, and empowering guide, chronic unhappiness is just a bad habit, a habit that can be broken. It's much easier than you think! Based on Dr. Luciani's 25 years of experience helping patients unlearn reflexive, destructive thinking, The Power of Self-Coaching arms you with all the tools you need to free yourself from your mental and emotional traps. As you work through the many self-quizzes, training and coaching exercises, and Power Drills, you'll see yourself anew and feel yourself growing lighter, more spontaneous, and ready to take charge of your life. A proven five-step program for reconnecting with the innate capacity for happiness, The Power of Self-Coaching gives you what you need to:

Identify learned patterns of thought and feelings that are making you unhappy

Use Dr. Luciani's celebrated Self-Talk techniques to develop new, healthy ways of thinking and feeling

Eliminate boredom, hopelessness, chronic fatigue, and emotional numbness from your life

Amazing, a self-help book that really helps!!!

Finally someone has answered my prayers! For years I have been struggling, not knowing or believing that there was an answer. The Power of Self-Coaching taught me not only about the roots of my struggle, but more importantly what I could do to change. Dr. Luciani has a 5-step program he calls Self-Talk that walks you through each step. Step two, for example, Separating Fact from Fiction, blew me away! All my life, I have been treating fictions (worry, fears, doubts) as if they were facts. I cannot tell you how this simple distinction has opened my eyes! Step four, Letting Go, is another example. Just as he says, the key is to stop feeding your habits of insecurity (he calls these Reflexive Thoughts) by learning to starve them (wait till you hear about the pigeons, I do not want to spoil this for you). I could go on, but take it from me, I have begun to starve my habits of insecurity and have found that I am no longer a prisoner of my anxiety and worry. Far as I am concerned this will be the last self-help book I will ever need.

Have an opend mind when listening to this...

The narration is good, keeps your attention, not the same mono tone that doctors seem to have when talking. It will make you think, if your currently going to therapy, you may find offense to this, and perhaps take it personal. Like a previous reviewer wrote, he does kind of knock the classical idea of mental help. However, he is also a doctor himself, and walks his talk. He does tell his patients as well, they are expected to figure out there own problems, and he is not to be there mental crutch. Because ultimately, it is the patient that has to resolve the problem for good, not the doctor. The doctor is merely support and to help guide.
