Using personal stories and self-evaluation exercises, behavioral therapist Mike Siver shows that you can create the life you want.
Learn how to evaluate who you are and how you became that way, and then how to change one behavior at a time to become the person you want to be.
Readers are encouraged to consider their situations and actions,and learn ways to use experiences from the past to help them take responsibility for future actions and to build the life they wish to have.
"All that matters for the purpose of self-evaluation is what we did and what we understood. It will not help our cause to blame someone else. That will not change anything."
