      This book is straightforward, and clearly a result of psychological research, especially in the field of cognitive development It guides you through a process of repairing self esteem, which starts off by analyzing how you view yourself Later, you dissect your weaknesses and decide which are true reflections of yourself, and which are merely exaggerations ones that you ve convinced yourself to believe in through years of self criticizing The second half of the book provides mediations and visual [...]

      I ve never read anything quite like this before It was interesting, but the self talk is a little foreign to me I think about stuff, but I don t regularly talk to myself I did learn some things about myself and about what I can do to improve those areas of self esteem that I have a difficult time with I m writing out below what I learned for my own benefit, although I don t mind if you read it I learned that I have a fear of rejection and often tell myself that people will reject me or my ideas [...]

      My original motivation for purchasing this book was to re familiarize myself with the topic of self esteem, how to foster it and how to make sure that I support the self esteem of those around me particularly in light of the team I was set to manage However, I found that this book applied to myself much than I would have anticipated I learned about myself by reading this book than I have through hours of self reflection and contemplation I always considered my humility and lack of ego to be on [...]

      This book has a lot to offer in building self esteem I especially liked the chapter on helping children build their self esteem I will include some thoughts from his book Every action your children make is an attempt to meet their needs This is true whether or not the behavior is successful at meeting their needs This is true whether or not the behavior is acceptable A child who picks fights with siblings, shows off in an obnoxious way, baby talks, or acts regressive needs something It might be [...]

    5. Melissa Storm says:

      I learned a lot about myself while reading this book Mostly that self help books are fully capable of giving me nightmares YIKES While I saw notable improvement in some areas of my life after reading this book for example asking for what you want and learning to deflect the inner critic , there were some areas that I found to be utter hogwash I do not cannot believe that everyone is simply doing the best they can given the circumstances when applied to murderers, rapists, and other detestable pe [...]

    6. Esther says:

      Listened to half of this book and stopped Found it insensitive The book manages to insult the people who are its case studies while suggesting ways they can improve their self esteem It puts a premium on physical attractiveness a man is approached by an attractive woman, for example The ideas it offers are outdated, suggesting that the reader challenge negative self talk using equivalent neutral phrases and then listing phrases that are equally judgmental Besides, the advice that the reader repl [...]

      This book was the second book that actually changed my life in my college years, thank God I d like to meet that author and give him a million dollars for changing my entire life with his very rational, helpful and interesting book After reading book I realized that before I had a really low self esteem and always self sabotaged myself, which had adverse effect on my confidence, but this book teaches you how to respect yourself, value your psychological state and raise your self confidence and s [...]

    8. Bridgett says:

      This was a very useful book that used a lot of the same techniques my PTSD therapist uses such as separating feelings from thoughts and figuring out core beliefs There are a lot of things I hope to apply to my own life and interactions with other people Hopefully by following some of the ways of thinking shown in this book I will have less cognitive distortions and will be a understanding person.

    9. Haley says:

      Starts off really, really well The mantras, etc are too limiting however and the book doesn t go into many topics in nearly enough detail Radical Acceptance goes much further and really addresses deeply rooted issues of self esteem.Radical Acceptance Embracing Your Life With the Heart of a Buddha

    13. Momina AHmad says:

      This is the second book that has changed my life, well every person is unique in his her own way, and this is the finest reality of beings that is mentioned here in this book.Habitually we conduct things,we show shades and shapes that sometimes left us in a suspension of colors but in actuality we are unknown to that colors.The author knows how to articulate the different topics and this is why this book is easy for reading.

      Caroline McHugh has this amazing talk on TEDx called The art of being yourself and it is truly inspiring if you have ears to hear to what she is saying about the EYE concepts of ourselves what the world thinks of me, what I want the world to think of me, what I think of myself and the actual talk of my soul I do a lot of affirmative psychology workshops and speeches like this help people to embrace themselves , to see the uniqueness and individuality and full potential in all of us while being p [...]

      This had excellent advice but it reads too much like a text book and I have read enough of those to not want to read any of those.

    20. Katy says:

      This book taught me a lot of important things One of them is that even self help books are not one size fits all.Don t get me wrong there are lots of good techniques and helpful tips in this book, and I know I ll use most of them Not sure about the self hypnosis yet But who knows But there were a few things that weren t rightFOR ME For example, I m not big into psychoanalysis, and I think it s a problem in this book specifically because everyone is different A book can t really help you with psy [...]

      So far I ve only read the second edition, but this book serves as a valuable resource for anyone whether a self loathing or someone without any apparent need for therapy, and also for therapists for their clients It s organized in a way to allow you to move through the sections relevant to your needs McKay takes a cognitive behavioral approach to the work on self esteem which focuses on a systematic analysis of thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and the objective facts themselves We all have an inne [...]

      Some time ago, a friend offered to go through this book with me, and, though I didn t learn anything startlingly new in its pages, it was a great help in getting me though a rough time.It s the real est self help book I ve ever read McKay and Fanning don t talk down to you, and don t go on ad nauseum about someone else s case history that doesn t even apply to your problems Also, and this is the best part, unlike 99% of similar books, the authors actually go one step further and give some honest [...]

    24. Jennifer says:

      There was some interesting and helpful information in here, especially the part about raising children with good self esteems Overall though, I found the book boring It took me almost a year to read the whole thing and it wasn t even that long I don t know if I took anything big out of it besides that fact that I think I may try visualizations and hypnotism I don t think my self esteem was bad off enough to need a lot of what was in here, but it may be of great help to someone else whose self es [...]

      Well, I m not so sureThis was suggested by a friend and it s not my normal fare Still it was some fascinating reading New perspectives Certainly rushed through it as usual and really need time to digest this lot Still Not judging Have to think on this some , but it sure challenges some of my basic and even favorite assumptions and not just about others, but also about myself So timeout and I ll dwell on this some in the coming days and perhaps weeks.

    26. Adela Carmona says:

      The cognitive training reinforcing techniques are very practical and effective This book is written in a very straight forward manner, which makes it very easy to read The exercises contained in the book make it a very complete self improvement manual I find myself randomly picking it up and doing the exercises as a refresher We all could use a little self improvement, this book really changes the way we see and talk to ourselves.

    27. Keri says:

      This is a great book on building your self esteem It really helps you understand why you think the way you do and how to help become a confident person The techniques really work, but it s not easy s not just a read and your better kind of thing You have to practice the techniques, it s a mental process.
