Overview

In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Steven Simring and Sue Klavans Simring show you haow to identify damaging behavior patterns and stop making dumb mistakes that mess up you life. Their revolutionary program identifies eight BlindSpots that cloud judgment and lead to career disappointments, botched romantic relationships, unsatisfactory friendships, and financial problems.

By taking a simple inventory, you’ll pinpoint which of the eight BlindSpots are responsible for your problems. Are you guilty of wishful thinking, repeatedly picking the wrong investments (or people)? Do you try to control uncontrollable situations, hoping you can change your spouse or child? Do you believe in mythical rewards and happy endings, only to be disappointed? Do you trust others who get you into trouble? Do you need to “rescue” people who won’t help themselves? Is it possible you allow your emotions to overrule rational thinking? Do you misjudge the way you come across? Do you consistently miss opportunities?

This book offers concrete advice and techniques that will help you overcome self-defeating behaviors and change the direction of your life. It will help you to break the cycle of poor decision-making as you learn to understand your motivations and finally stop sabotaging your happiness and success.
