4 Stars I go to therapy every single month and I ve been going since I was 19 Some months and years it was than others but I personally think it s a healthy thing When I was asked to review a book written by a psychologist about self sabotage which I do a lot of, sadly I was definitely in A lot of the techniques and exercises in this book transported me back to my own therapy sessions over the years which has helped me immensely.Dr Judy starts the book with how and why we got here Then she takes us through six steps to stop self sabotaging She goes into great detail as to why each step is so important and then how to fix it She also gives you 3 exercises, one quick, one short term and one long term These are actually very helpful as I ve done them myself throughout the last 10 years or so when identifying self sabotaging situations She ends the book with how to continue on and keep up with this journey to end self sabotage In fact, I feel like I could hear her cheering me on when I got to the last page Self help books can be hard for people to take the info and apply it First, I think you have to want to do it and you cannot force anyone to self help get help if they do not want it I think the info and exercises in this book are very realistic and can truly help those who self sabotage I cannot say that I never self sabotage any but this book did make me realize some self sabotaging scenarios in my life I plan to use Dr Judy s techniques to help improve them If you ve ever told yourself you can t or you ve been scared to do something because of embarrassment then this is the book for you to help you change your thinking This book can truly help with all situations deadlines at work, weight loss, dating, etc Think of it as your own therapy at your own pace in 250 pages.Be sure to pick this one up when it publishes in August I hope that Dr Judy decides to write as I would definitely love to read by her Thank you to Suzy Approved Book Tours and Harper Wave for my ARC of this book. Linda s Book Obsession Review of Stop Self Sabotage by Dr Judy Ho, PHD, Harper Wave, 8 2019 Part of Suzy Approved Book ToursDr Judy Ho, Author of Stop Self Sabotage has written a wealth of intense information about sabotage and you First of all, Dr Judy Ho describes what sabotage is, and then how to deal with it This book is crammed with a tremendous amount of information and charts I personally don t like writing in my books, so you are able to copy the charts The author suggests the importance of a Journal and pen and pencil While I was reading I constantly was taking notes, but that is my style of doing things The Genres for this Book is Self Help and Non Fiction This is not an easy read, and there is not a miracle cure for stopping to sabotage yourself.There are some tests for you to figure out your triggers for sabotage, and there are ways that the author provides charts, case studies, and other doctor s material Basically, you have to own your behavior, and you can follow certain mental exercises, and plans that you have to work on Changing your behavior takes time I found this book to be interesting and was interested in some of the tests that I took I would recommend this for readers interested in Stopping Self Sabotage and looking to live a productive life. Have you ever gotten yourself into trouble by not paying your bills on time Failed at a diet AGAIN Struggled to open up in a relationship Almost missed a work deadline because you couldn t stop checking social media These are all examples of ways that we self sabotage In Dr Judy Ho s new book, Stop Self Sabotage Six Steps to Unlock Your True Motivation, Harness Your Willpower, and Get Out of Your Own Way, you ll learn why we do these things, follow exercises to dig into your personal triggers, and practice ways to finally stop the cycle of self sabotage.If you are anything like me, you ll want to rush in, skip the intro, and flip pages to the end to find the magic cure for this behavior Well, I hate to spoil it, but there is no magic cure However, I did follow the exercises and complete the charts as I went, and I ll tell you that it will take work to change my behavior, but I ve already seen positive changes through my efforts.Actually, my favorite part of the book was learning about the primary motivations behind self sabotage I read through them all and I initially felt hopeless I kept thinking oh no, I do all of these But actually after I did the exercise to diagnose behavioral markers, I found that two were much stronger motivators of my self sabotage, and the others I barely scored on at all This is the importance of reading this book all of the way through It s easy to skim and think ok, I ve got this Fear Check Stop being afraid That must be the key But actually the reason we are in these cycles of self sabotage is that we don t really have good insight into why we are doing it or how to stop it I thought I knew what my triggers were, but when I worked through this book I realized that I wasn t focusing on the right thing.I also broke this book into chunks when I read it I started slow, with the exercises around diagnosing and learning to note when I m falling into my self sabotage triggers Then, as I got comfortable recognizing the patterns, I began the specific exercises designed to help me change my behaviors and thought patterns I kept a notebook for mine, but you could also write directly in your book.I recommend this to even those who think they don t struggle with self sabotage Often we don t realize how we are sabotaging ourselves We think it is just the way we are wired, or we blame other things e.g., my coworkers were being too chatty so that is why I got behind But the truth is, we are in control of our own behaviors and we can stop these cycles with patience and discipline.Thank you to Suzy for my chance to
