    Five proven strategies for getting "unstuck" at work, in relationships, and in life.

    I want to recommend STOP Self-Sabotage! Get Out of your Own Way to Earn More Money, Improve Your Relationships and Find the Success You Deserve by Pat Pearson to you.

    I reviewed this book in the past, but it's been completely rewritten, picked up by a publisher, and Pearson has done a really fabulous job with it. In fact, I can confidently say that it is even worth re-reading. The new version has better examples, is more up-to-date, and is completely relevant to current circumstances.

    She makes great points about what is likely stopping you from achieving greatness. In the book, she presents six self-sabotage categories - for instance Procrastination and Settling for Less. The descriptions of the behaviors related to each of these categories are very thought provoking and really cause you to reflect and identify which one is your personal match.

    The descriptions of how these behaviors and outlooks hold us back are so powerful. I saw myself in the "Settling for Less" category. I've done that with diets and in business. Seeing it laid out as a behavior pattern was sobering.

    Another real eye opener for me was that "Perfectionism" and "Procrastination" go hand in hand. I'm guilty of it and it's so common for women. We set our selves up with "I have to do this first, and this first, and that." and delay starting on the real project until things are so "perfect" that we sabotage ourselves by either never beginning the important things, or leaving ourselves so little time that we do a poor job. (Or lower our standards, and "Settle for Less.")

    Pearson's descriptions will help you see yourself and could help you overcome the problems. By helping you become aware of where you're challenged, this book can help you create a plan to overcome it. And that self-awareness is essential to accomplishing greatness.
