    A teen with so many months to live and who fineally "got it"!

    Oh My Gosh. I am Female who is 16 years of age. I have been depressed for a long time. Mostly how i have been braught up in my life and then having my father cheat and walk out on my mother for a while (it could have been worse, thank goodness it wasn't!). I had been throwing up my meals and also hurting myself by cutting (Self-Injurering), neither of my parents knew, very easy to hide if your parents don't know what they should be looking for. Month after month i would come across Jay's book, either hearing it on T.V. or radio, word of mouth or net, etc. I asked my mother (who is some what diffcult to get along with, she has a personality disorder, narssistic!) to get this book for me. She rolled her eyes and exclaimed to me "Mill! Is this going to be another teen book you read for 2 seconds and place on your shelf and never read much less look at it again?" I realized then that i had done that with every teen book that told me that it would help me. I was determinded i was going to not be predictable by my mother and to prove her wrong. So, she got the book for me. I first started reading it because i wanted to prove to my mother that i wasn't going to stick it just back on the shelf and forget about it. After i turned the second page i realized that i was doing this for ME and myself only. No longer my MOTHER. I was doing something to help me. I wanted the help and was ready for the help. Now, i have only cut once and its been 4 months (which is huge, i would cut 3 or 4 times daily). I no longer throw up my meals (also did that 3 times a day). I have read Jay's book 8 times already and won't take it off of my night stand. It has changed my life and Jay is truely about helping the 'teens' of today! I felt like he really cared and that he was a teen himself that was wiser and has "got it" before the rest of us! I highly recomend it! I have decided to become a consuler or a writer or something to where i can work with teens of today and help them "get it" just as Jay was able to help me "get it"! Thanks Jay!!

    Summary of Life Strategies for Teens in 365 Installments

    Life Strategies for Teens is a superb book. If you have to choose between this book and that one, go for that one. On the other hand, if you would like to reread the key ideas in Life Strategies for Teens, this book is a reasonably good resource for doing that. You would, however, benefit more by creating your own set of notes about Life Strategies for Teens that emphasizes that is most important for you to focus on. If that is hard for you to do, you could use this book as an outline from which you could abstract a briefer, and more relevant personal outline. Most of the entries are devoted to the 10 Life Laws: 1. ¿You either get it, or you don¿t.¿ January 26 2. ¿You create your own experience.¿ February 27 3. ¿People do what works.¿ March 16 4. ¿You cannot change what you do not acknowledge.¿ March 29 5. ¿Life rewards action.¿ May 8 6. ¿There is no reality, only perception.¿ June 2 7. ¿Life is managed. It is not cured.¿ July 9 8. ¿We teach people how to treat us.¿ August 29 9. ¿There is power in forgiveness.¿ October 4 10. ¿You have to name it before you can claim it.¿ November 15 A section on the challenges of sex and drugs begins on December 11. As you can see, making this a calendar presents something of a problem. Buy the book much past January 1, and you will feel strange reading it unless you wait until 2003 to start. A better design would have been to let you start whenever you got the book, and write in your own dates. But obviously, you can just write in your own dates and start whenever you get it. I thought the better pages were the ones with questions to answer. Unfortunately, there were a lot fewer of these questions than in Life Strategies for Teens. You can find lots of good questions, however, in the Life Strategies for Teens Workbook, which I also recommend. Should you read this book? If that¿s your learning style, to glance at something each day to get a thought or two, yes. If that¿s not your learning style, refer back to the workbook questions instead -- one per day. May you find processes that help you build the most helpful habits that you want to establish! Donald Mitchell, co-author of The 2,000 Percent Solution and The Irresistible Growth Enterprise
