Our willingness to acknowledge the things we cannot control, and focus our energy on those things we can influence, is inextricably linked to our happiness and success in life.

Based on years of study of the greatest philosophers, thinkers and psychoanalytic experts of all time and inspired by a battle with cancer at a young age, author Joe Caruso distills the essence of the simple, common, timeless human truths elemental to our existence in this very readable and enjoyable book. Written in Joe’s warm, engaging style, “The Power of Losing Control” offers unique, valuable, and usable insights to living a meaningful and satisfying life.

While many self-help books deal with external strategies, like time-management or setting priorities, this book goes straight to the source, our inner-selves, and points out some of the simplest strategies and insights can have the biggest impact, such as Ten Attitudes and Ideas to Let Go Of, the Four Rules of Engagement, and the Five Steps to Wisdom. “We are the stories we tell ourselves we are,” and Caruso clearly embraces his approaches in his own life, making this book a credible, reliable way to help shift our perspective and open our eyes to our own reality.

A great book to read, and reread. Links within the book take the reader to additional free content (like audio clips and exercises) on the author's website to practice and own the principles of the book.

Editorial Reviews

Rick Vlasic

Joe Caruso’s concept about The Power of Losing Control absolutely establishes the basis for individual and organizational transformation. I believe Caruso is on the brink of leading corporate America through a shift in approach that hasn’t been seen since the ’7 Habits.’

Barbara Beck

This is a true roadmap for anyone seeking transformational and lasting change in their personal and professional lives.

Matthew Anonymous

Bad things happen, circumstances occur beyond our control...and in fact, pretty much everything that happens to us is outside our direct control. This is not the worst thing to realize, though; if anything, it's liberating...

Only when we accept that we are in an out of control world can we then stare down reality in the face and DEAL with reality fully aware and cognizant of how little we really OUGHT to cling to, emotionally, particularly if it neither SERVES or IMPROVES us.

Gerald G. Jampolsky

Joe Caruso offers powerful insight that are straightforward and easy to put to work in our everyday life to create meaningful change.

Paul Bisaro

Changing one's perspective can be the key to enhancing personal and corporate performance. In this book, Joe provides the tools that will help you enrich your personal life.
