By Lynn M. Griesemer on July 12, 2012
Format: Paperback
"Why Do I Keep Doing This!!?" discusses addictions, why we have certain habits, and how we can break free. I like how Dr. Pearson puts the habit in the context of other health related topics including self-esteem, nutrition, sleep and exercise. Breaking a habit is not just focusing on the habit, but considering other lifestyle choices and circumstances.

I benefited from the accompanying CD on self-hypnosis techniques. While this book is beneficial for confronting and eliminating habits, the unexpected bonus for me is that I have redefined part of myself - something that was holding me back. For 3 years, I have not been able to run, but because of the CD, I started running last month, with a goal of completing a triathlon (which includes a 5K run) next month!

My running blockage has not been mainly physical, which I had told myself, but mainly mental. Self-hypnosis and NLP are helping me to unblock some areas that I assumed had taken root. The beauty of this book is that we CAN make changes and this book gives specific tools and techniques. It is not another book on theory. The reader will have to do some work. Do not read this book and let it sit on your shelf. Roll up your sleeves and do the work - you will not be disappointed!

I like how the author mentions the work of other prominent NLP practitioners and shares practical ways to diminish and demolish unwanted habits and addictions. She emphasizes that relapses are the norm rather than the exception when trying to overcome addictions.

"Why Do I Keep Doing This!!?" is comprehensive. The reader may tend to be overwhelmed at first. This book is best read and implemented over a period of time, perhaps 2-3 months. It is a great resource for those new to NLP and hypnosis and for anyone trying to break free from a pesky habit.

At the end of a NLP class with Dr. Pearson six months ago, I purchased this book from her.

Chapter Three "An Overview of NLP" is very concise and clear. Here Dr. Pearson puts NLP's principles together in an actionable way with an exceptional combination of descriptive and economical use of language. I've found it a handy way to introduce others to NLP as well as a quick reference to well-formed outcomes for myself.

Chapter 21 "Define You Life Purpose" brings Dr. Pearson's clinical experience into words. The chapter's start has stuck with me. My take on her writing in this chapter is that 90% of my problems are self-sabotage because there is not something I want enough. With enough desire all my mental sled dogs pull in the same direction. My issues get resolved by my implacable intent.

This book is an excellent introduction for creatively adapting basic hypnosis techniques and neuro-linguistic processes with the goals of replacing undesired habits with helpful ones, negative thinking with a positive attitude, and reducing stress to improve overall health in many ways. I have found a number of patterns and techniques which are helpful, including: responding resourcefully to criticism, improving self-esteem with mirror-work, practicing risk management, and removing fear and anxiety using the imagery of a protective shield. This last method can be very helpful for the many children who are taunted at school, as well as adults who may endure frequent rudeness at work.

The author encourages others to create and record their own hypnosis instructions utilizing some of the many helpful hypnosis and NLP suggestions included in the book. This can readily be done in the comfort of one's home, often without the need to schedule appointments with a therapist or counselor. Many constructive, practical ideas presented here can be readily adapted to an individual situation without great difficulty.

In the final chapter, the author discusses the importance of defining one's life purpose, and how our undesirable habits and behaviors often hide our unacknowledged (unconscious) conflicts, hindering our ability to pursue a purposeful life. As long as we continue worrying and focusing our attention on our habits, addictions, and unpleasant feelings, we may never discover the answer to perhaps the most important question of all: What is my (life) purpose?
