Over the past twenty years or more I’ve studied hundreds of books dedicated to psychology and self-help; consequently I’ve learnt many ways to deal with and overcome my distorted way of thinking. That said, I’m always on the look out for ways in which I can improve myself further.
He maintains: The ability to control life is a myth; our insecurities and the quest for control is what lies at the root of our problems. But, with self coaching we can overcome this, almost pathological, need for control.
Dr Luciani describes control and habit as:
“… an attempt to manage and manipulate life because you’ve come to distrust your natural, spontaneous capacity to handle life. Habit refers to the specific control patterns that have become automatic, such as worrying, rumination, perfectionism, and the like.”
The power of Self-Coaching will help; the concept promotes the idea that you can learn to restructure your way of thinking and defeat whatever holds you back in life.
The book is clearly written in an easy-going style and is incredibly motivating. Dr Luciani teaches us: an ineffective, unhappy life is learned; he coaches us in how to empower ourselves by breaking the learned habits of insecurity and he implores us to accept responsibility for our own life.
Although there are concepts within the book with which I was already familiar, there is a tremendous amount of powerful information that I was able to take away from it. I highly recommend the book to anyone looking to add powerful tools to their ‘psychological tool shed’.
