Why are so many of our attempts to change unsuccessful? It's not a lack of willpower. The problem is that we try to adopt new, more positive behaviors without first breaking the hold that the old negative behaviors have on us. We can't simply turn these negative behaviors off; in fact, their hold is so strong that, as Blumenthal shows, they have become a part of us. In a very real sense, we're addicted to ou rselves. But self-addiction can be broken. In "You're Addicted to You," Blumenthal outlines his proven "Circles of Strength" approach, a three-stage strategy to help readers conquer damaging behaviors like anger, workaholism, risk aversion, negativity & any bad habit. He offers tools, techniques, and exercises for increasing our awareness of our self-addictions and controlling their impact on ourselves and others. He shows how to make personal and professional changes that actually last. Everyone knows what they want to change; Blumenthal show s readers exactly how to actually do it.
