About the Book

Do you settle for too little? Let others call the shots? Dream of a better life but do nothing to change the one you have?

If it's time to move forward, then Take-Charge Living is for you! Whether it's lose weight, get out of a bad relationship, quit procrastinating, seek love, change jobs, go back to school, curb anger-whatever behavior you need to change, this step-by-step program in six acts teaches you how to do it successfully.

You will learn to:

  • Set appropriate expectations about change
  • Confront fears of changing
  • Target the right behaviors to change
  • Deal with emotional resistance to change
  • Follow a carefully sequenced practice plan
  • Move from dress rehearsals to real world performances

You are capable of exerting far more control over your moods, feelings, thoughts, and behaviors-in other words, your reactions to life-than you think. And it doesn't take psychotherapy to do it. So if the story currently playing on your life's stage is not one you feel like applauding, here's your chance to rewrite the script and star in a satisfying performance!
