1. We are succeeding always as long as we are learning.
2. Doing badly is a valuable experience for learning.
3. Doing things correctly tells us what we want to repeat.
4. After much discipline and hard work, our performance will come closer to our potential ability, and this process is defined as success.
So in stead of measuring myself against others, I should measure my performance against my potential.
If you are into CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy) and specifically like the "homework"/exercise aspect, then this book is probably not what you're looking for. However, CBT originally stemmed from REBT / RET. The main difference is the focus for changing how we feel in our lives. CBT focuses on the actions that will hopefully change your feelings, while REBT focuses on the thoughts that will change your feelings as well as change your actions. Both therapies work to a very high degree, but they each come at the problem from slightly different spots in the cycle. Any lack of exercises included in this book is merely a function of REBT more than anything neglected by the author.
Even if you are a die-hard CBT/exercise fan, I would still recommend that everyone give this book a shot, since it's short, straight forward, and a small investment in what could be the best thing that ever happened to you! I happen to love thinking about things and thinking about different possibilities (I was a philosophy major of all things... not directly practical!) and this book did change my life. It got me out of my head, thinking less and doing more - which for me, was exactly what I needed! (I had become an undisciplined, unsuccessful, unhappy perfectionist! ... fellow REBT enthusiast will totally get that! :) Anyway, reading this book helped me learn to be happy not being perfect by changing the way I thought about myself and others.
After reading this book and books by Albert Ellis, I am convinced that cognitive approachs are best for reducing disturbances. I expect the book would be a good supplement if you are getting psychotherapy that uses the rational emotive behavioral approach or the cognitive behavioral approach.
As Hauck says, the book should be re-read to get the full benefit from it.

This book is definitely much better than many self-help books promoting "self-esteem".
However, I think Chapter 5 (Make People Respect You) is a weak one. Read more
So glad I read this book. Just wished it was when I was a teen, what a difference it would have made into my life. I highly recomend this book to anyone, specially for the young. Read morePublished on May 22, 2013 by Jair
