For anyone who's ever felt demoralized, addicted, drained of energy, or victimized, this follow-up to the transformative New York Times bestseller identifies the patterns of behaviour that hold us back and presents a tool for each that allows us to break free and realize our full potential.
Your relationship with life is a 2-way street. It gives to you, but it also makes demands of you. Life makes its demands known through the problems you encounter. Confronting your problems allows you to discover your potential--this is the essence of human evolution. Think of your evolution as a difficult climb up a mountain path. When you lose energy, it's like suddenly falling into a hole--you stop ascending. But in life, you dig the hole yourself. There are 4 different ways of digging this hole. Each consists of a set of attitudes and behaviours that drain your energy and make it impossible to go on. The 4 patterns are: demoralization, addiction, paralysis and victimization. In this second book of "tools," Stutz & Michels explain what you did to fall into each hole. They give you the specific tool that allows you to climb out, to create and maintain structure and resiliency in your own life, so you can continue the ascent to your highest potential.
