"Forgive to Win! is a powerful book that will transform you and those around you. I encourage you to buy several copies and then give them away. You will be empowered as you do. Thanks to Dr. Jacobson for giving the world the cure for self-sabotage and the key to attracting lasting success." ~ Ron Stebelton, Eagle Leadership Consulting
"Forgive To Win! is a book of self-help and self-discovery reminiscent of best-selling books like The Secret and The Power of Now. While those books are excellent, Forgive To Win! takes self-help to a whole new level by showing individuals just how to apply its principles into their daily lives for amazing results!" ~ Mihir Shah
"Forgive To Win! is action-oriented, not a passive read that ends up on the shelf never to be opened again. If you relate to the idea that self sabotage gets in the way of your success, you'll want to work your way through this very positive 90-day program." ~ Janet Gallagher Nestor, Center for Well Being
"Dr. Jacobson makes the case that unconditional forgiveness holds the key to happiness, physical well-being and prosperity. His book, "Forgive To Win!, makes the understanding and application of the forgiveness process fun and practical! Everyone who wishes to gain a greater experience of success, sustainable happiness, and inner peace needs to read his book." ~ Dr. Aymee Coget, Sustainable Happiness Expert
"Dr. Jacobson has written a concise, commonsense book, "Forgive To Win!, that will be of practical use to anyone who is interested in achieving happiness, well-being and material success. It covers a huge subject, adopting a very sage approach that is different from the usual cheerleading method often prevalent in books of a similar nature." ~ Norman Goldman
From the Author
I wrote Forgive To Win! because during my many years helping people as a board-certified psychiatrist, I realized that the cause of most people's unhappiness, depression, anxiety, anger, and frustration with their health, their relationships, their career and their finances is self-sabotage!
Most people get in their own way. They don't do things they know they need to do and when they do take action they make poor choices that impact negatively on their lives and keep them from attracting and manifesting all that they desire and aspire to accomplish.
When I started teaching my patients the secret to ending their self-sabotaging behaviors (spiritual techniques and cognitive tools designed to increase self-esteem and eliminate guilt, shame and self-loathing deeply embedded in the unconscious mind), their emotional turmoil subsided and their lives got better!
I realized that the Forgiveness Diet, my structured 90-day program for ending self-sabotage, was something that could benefit a great many people, particularly those who repeatedly buy self-help books and don't get the results that they desire because they sabotage their efforts at applying the principles the self-help books provide to them.

I first studied ACIM 25 or so years ago, and, although I've given lip service to idea "The key to happiness is forgiveness," it was definitely easier said than done for me, and I have held onto my grievances to my detriment! Now, with the help of the book, I'm done with my self-defeating attitudes and actions (reactions). I want an amazing conclusion to my life, and now I know it's happening as I forgive and forget. I have saved my box of quotes from ACIM so I use them every hour or two during the day to help me remember who I really am and how I should be treating others.
Everything it just falling into place. An example: I just sent a letter to my dad's widow who my sisters and I have never gotten along with since he married her about 2 years after out mother died. It doesn't matter what she's done or hasn't done, I have decided to forgive her.
I read Forgive To Win about a month ago and I am now on the "Forgiveness Diet." Like I said, I had read that Forgiveness is the Key to Happiness, but it didn't really sink in until I read Forgive To Win. Why not? Here's what Rhonda Byrne, author of The Secret and The Power says,
"When you read The Secret book or watch the film of The Secret (or really anything else that has a message for you), you can only take into your mind the knowledge that is on the same frequency as you at the time. The next time you read the book or watch the film, you take in much, much more. And this process never stops. You will continue to discover something more in every reading or viewing, and the principles become clearer and clearer and clearer. That is because your consciousness is expanding every single time."
Forgive To Win and The Power are like "two sides to the same coin." The complement each other, and I believe, give you a complete picture of what you need to do to "love the life you live by living a loving life."
With warm regards and deep gratitude,
I have given three of these books away and plan on buying more they are a perfect gift.
I gave a book to my sister. It took a while before she read it. She called me and said why didn't you tell me to read this? It's awesome, just what I needed!
Thank you Walter E. Jacobson
The analogy is laid out; forgiveness like a diet plan. And 9 or so steps are recommended on a daily basis. Waaaay to many steps for your average bear. I would consolidate the steps and put them into a more user friendly infographic. Some of the steps are too striated. Combine, condense, format and use. My take on this and I will be setting this up in my google calendar reminders:
1. Be of service (look for opportunities to help, to give, to smile)
2. Transform judging, sarcasm, meanness into finding the good, the better, the great
3. Do the right thing
4. Create some mantras - Anger Hurts, Forgiveness Heals was a pretty good one I thought.
5. Be thankful
6. Nightly review (did you serve, did you see the good, did you behave)
Rinse and repeat.
The content is excellent, the steps are too many. Definitely a worthy book to read, especially if you have any anger issues or you just want to be better. I look forward to a second edition and future books from this author.
