This is an insightful gem of a book. Put it on your
iPod, read it and be inspired to commit to a better life. Sierra’s
writing is concise and quick to read, creating ease and a light
heartedness without diminishing what for many of us are deeply
entrenched behaviours that cause us unhappiness. As Sierra points out,
facing these behaviours can take considerable discipline and commitment
but the result is much greater freedom and happiness in your life.
Roberts creates a fictional character called Mark,
who is all too real. I recognised all of him in a previous version of
myself – overeating, lack of exercise, annoyance at my bosses'
inability to value me, a belief that I wasn’t likeable or attractive
enough to others hence my lack of a loving intimate relationship …
phew, what a relief that I am no longer that person!
As I read the book, I realised how far I have come
in addressing my own sabotage behaviours – and boy does it feel good. I
eat a healthy and fun diet, I exercise regularly and even teach a
weekly yoga class, I’m now my own boss and have a successful business,
I am with the most wonderful man and have two beautiful children.
Lorraine's book is the road map for such a change of attitude and life.
Read this book and be inspired to do what truly benefits you and
everyone you have contact with.
In Sierra’s words: Make a pact with yourself
right now. Stake your claim on a future free of the debilitating
effects of sabotage behaviour. Be willing to change, enlist skilled
help, and go for it!

When I started reading this book I didn’t really
think I would get much out of it. I consider myself a stable and happy
person and I was pretty sure that I don’t have any self-sabotaging
behavior, but I was still curious. The more I got into it the more I
realized that just about everyone stands in his or her own way from
time to time. This is not only a book to read if you think you have a
problem but also one that will help recognizing those little things
that can be tweaked before they actually develop into one. I had a
couple of AHA-moments while reading and I am already adjusting some of
my behavior to what I think will make me and the ones around me happier
in the future. Thanks, Sierra, for an eye-opening book and for putting
so much time and effort into your restless quest to improve people’s
lives. I really mean it when I say that you are one of those who make
the world a better place every day.
