    Most of us believe that we will finally feel satisfied and content with our lives when we get the good news we have been waiting for, find a healthy relationship, or achieve one of our personal goals. However, this rarely happens. Good fortune is often followed by negative emotions that overtake us and result in destructive behaviors.

    Overall

    Thought-provoking, inspiring, a little preachy but otherwise VERY good...

    I agree with other reviews that this book starts off feeling a little anthonyrobbinesque (yes I did just make that word up haha) - but I was intrigued to see where it went, and how it developed.
    I found it extremely useful more as a springboard for exploring my own situation and my own limits. I am somewhat skeptical by nature, and so took the book as I do any self-help resource - with a good grain of salt and an open mind.
    I would say that anyone expecting a manual for success will probably be somewhat disappointed - but anyone with the courage to look inside themselves and honestly ask what holds them back from happiness and success will find the book inspiring and thought provoking.
    No book holds "the answers" in itself, but I think this book could help people to begin really *looking* for the answers.
    I'm listening to this for the 2nd time, and am buying a copy for a friend. I think that speaks as loud as any long-winded review, hm? ;)
