Publisher's Summary

In addition to presenting Sean Stephenson's unbelievable life story, Get Off Your "But" offers anyone who needs to conquer fears and insecurities a hands-on guide for overcoming the forces of negativity and self-sabotage. Sean - a successful psychotherapist - shows what it takes to overcome the big bumps in the road, eliminate excuses, end insecurities, and ultimately stand up for happiness and success in life.

As Sean explains, anyone can fall victim to the "Buts":

  • "But" Fears (BUT what if I fail...)
  • "But" Insecurities (BUT I'm not good enough...)
  • "But" Excuses (BUT there's no time...)

    Get Off Your "But" offers a practical guide for putting fear behind you and building the inner resources to become self-confident at work and at home. It's time to get off your "but" and start leading the life you dream.

      Despite what a lot of reviews say Sean absolutely needed to be the narrator. His story and ability to give examples and provide the get off you but exercise helped me think about how I am approaching my life.

      "Good only if you have no exposure to Tony Robbins"

      This is a great book if you have no exposure to Tony Robbins material. But if you have been expose you realize that Sean is pretty much is using all the teachings of his with a twist.
      In general personal development material are great if you can have a relatable story attach to it. Sean's story is very touching and inspirational.

      "Sean Stevenson is the real deal"

      "Get Off Your But" is an amazing book that is powerful and insightful and was written by a man who truly practices what he preaches. Sean Stevenson is the real deal. I've read this book several times and purchased copies for family and friends. Now I'm excited about listening to this audio version of the book that brought me some light in a very dark time in my life. This book is not full of scientific sounding information but useful practical advice that anyone can implement.

      "Very helpful"

      This book helped me identify and work on personal issues that I have been trying to solve for years but didn't know how. It gives solutions to self relationship and relationships with others. I loved hearing the author narrate his own story and other's stories, they were relatable and encouraging. With time and patience I believe that following the advice given in this book will help achieve success in whatever I chose to accomplish.

      "Very boring."

      It feels like the author and narrator is more interested in boasting about their great life than in actually giving advice. Confidence is one thing, arrogance another.

      Loved this so much, I have grown up with a very rare nerve disease "Giant Axonal Neuropathy" and hearing how you have grown up and made something amazing with your live has really helped me. Listening to how you delta with circumstances has made me look back on how I have dealt with things and re inspired me to live a great life again. I have realised how much good I can achieve by getting off my but and inspiring others to keep going. thank you so much. Working through the exercises wow :) thank you.

      Story
      "Invaluable Life Wisdom"
      Where does Get Off Your 'But' rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

      One of the best books I've listened to.


      Who was your favorite character and why?

      Sean!


      What about Sean Stephenson’s performance did you like?

      Sean has a great speaking voice and excellent delivery-not surprising given his extensive public speaking experience.


      Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

      The entire book was packed with moving anecdotes, but my favorite was the final chapter, in which the choice of "cause vs. effect" was presented.
