As Judith Sills says in this exceptionally wise and refereshingly pragmatic book, everyone has baggage. It's the aspect of your personality that keeps getting in your way.
Excess Baggage shines a light on our blind spots, defining five common obstacles to happiness that we create:
• We need to be right
• We feel superior
• We dread rejection
• We create drama
• We cherish our anger
Life doesn't have to be so hard. Using easy-to-follow but powerful psychological excercises, Dr. Sills helps you discover just what it is about yourself that keeps you from getting what you want. Then you can set your excess baggage down foerever—and get out of your own way.
