Some problems just don't seem to go away. Another season goes by, and you're still behind the same desk, even though the promotion you wanted didn't come through again. Month after month, you and your spouse quarrel about the same old issues. And you still haven't lost the weight you wanted to lose, or kept up that exercise program. You make resolutions, or promise yourself you'll think of a plan. Time passes, and nothing happens. You're right back where you were, and nothing has changed.

Something inside you stands in the way. Maybe you tell yourself you just don’t deserve to get what you want, or it’s too dangerous to risk a change. Maybe you doubt your ability to fix the problem anyway, or you worry that you might hurt someone else if you tried to change things.

Now, in this new guide, best-selling authors Matthew McKay, Ph.D., and Patrick Fanning will show you how to challenge these four core beliefs that keep you stuck in old ways of acting and living. You will discover the tools you need to work out any problem that you’ve been unable to solve—whether in your career or finances, your relationship or your family, your health or your lifestyle.

Book Depository International

Book Description New Harbinger Publications, United States, 2003. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. According to best-selling self-help authors McKay and Fanning, four major core beliefs keep us from solving our problems: we tell ourselves that we just don't deserve to get what we want, we tell ourselves that the world is too dangerous for us to risk a change, we tell ourselves that we're too incompetent to fix our problem, or we tell ourselves that others are more important and that their needs should always come first. In How to Get There from Here, readers start by assessing which core beliefs are holding them back from solving their problem-and are offered specific self-help strategies to help them overcome these inhibiting beliefs. Readers are then introduced to problem-solving strategies that will help them deal with any problem they face, including step-by-step instructions to help them assess the problem, brainstorm possible solutions, evaluate the consequences of each solution, and develop an action plan to put the best of the new solutions into practice. The cycle closes with an evaluation of how the problem-solving process is going and an assessment of what one might change to improve their outcomes. Seller Inventory # APC9781572243026
