Some books just crawl into your head and rewire your brain.
That’s what is happening to me as I explore The 12 Bad Habits that Hold Good People Back by James Waldroop and Timothy Butler.
This is one of those rare books that expose your unconscious behaviors. In this case the book reveals 12 bad habits, which I prefer to call mental programs and the authors call behavior patterns, that prevent success.
I thought I was doing pretty good with my career until I started absorbing this book.
I began to squirm as I felt some of the bad habits hit a little too close to home. But I also know that once I change a bad habit, even greater success will come my way.
The 12 bad habits include —
Never feeling good enough
Avoiding conflict at any cost
Allowing fear to rule
There are twelve of them, remember, and while all may not fit you, I bet three or more do.
Those 3 or 4 may be stopping you from the glorious success and beaming happiness you seek.
The book goes deeper than the 12 bad habits, too. It also reveals the four underlying psychological issues that help create the 12 behavior patterns.
Two of those core issues are —
Having a negatively distorted self-image
Not having come to terms with authority
I’ve said it many times and I’ll say it again: the results you’re getting stem from your unconscious. The beliefs wired there are causing the actions you perform, which lead to the results you get. Change the inner and you’ll change the outer.
In short, you need to get clear.
This book should be required reading for anyone wanting to achieve more. I can’t say enough about the value of knowing yourself, and this book pulls no punches in helping you awaken to some key (and usually hidden) self-limiting habits.
The authors also have an online course (which I haven’t seen) based on their ideas at their website at www.careerdiscovery.com
Get the book.
I’d loan you my copy but it’s being underlined and highlighted and otherwise well used.
I think that’s one of my good habits.
