Whenever I feel sorry for myself, I re-read it. It's like advice given by a wise friend to help you to put your life into perspective.
I've bought at least four copies for friends. I have a copy on my bookshelf and one on my book reader. Aug 12, Ali rated it it was amazing. Loved this book, whenever I need inspiration I re read it again and it gives me a boost. I first read the original edition of this book when it was published ten years ago. A copy fell off a display at a station book stall in front of me.
I picked it up and glanced through it. At the time I was in a work situation which I didn't like and which I really needed to shut up and move on from so the book hit exactly the right note and I bought a copy.
It was a pleasure to renew my acquaintance with the book in this tenth anniversary edition. It has lost none of its freshness over the years I first read the original edition of this book when it was published ten years ago.
It has lost none of its freshness over the years. I love the little cartoons which reinforce the messages. This is a quirky self help book which does not assume you can be perfect just by reading it.
It includes a lot of the usual things such as changing the messages you give yourself; looking at people and situations from a different perspective trying to be positive. But it also suggests there are times when you actually need to just accept that you're feeling unhappy for whatever reason. You have to be able to accept your feeling in order to move on. The book emphasises that you have to take responsibility for your own life and actions. Even if you can't control events which affect you, you can control your reactions to those events.
As with any self help book, the author's writing style has a big part to play in whether or not this book is of use to you. I found the author's style resonates with me and this book really did help me ten years ago and re-reading it now has reminded me of things I can do to improve my current situation. Oct 26, Elena Schalkowski rated it really liked it Shelves: Paul McGee suggests many tables and structures how it could be possible to create an amazing life.
Most of them are clear and you can think like: He also tells his own experience, his up and downs, his failures, his success. I enjoyed reading the book. I could categorize many things I already new into the subject matter.
When I think about what Paul writes about I get just pictures in my head from the book. The book itself is very interactive and it is very helpful. A lovely book worth reading! Easy to read. Good practical exercises, allow time to reflect.
Systematic approach for those needing a push. In short: And here's how you can do it guide. Paul is a very impressive speaker and I went straight out and downloaded his book.
Paul has a sense of humour that I really understand well. This kept the book entertaining and kept my interest. I feel what SUMO is about is very similar to stocism, essentially the serenity to accept the things we cannot change, the courage to take action and change what we can and essentially the wisdom to know the difference. The book covers goal setting, focusing on what is important and taking action to maxmise your results in those areas while not spending too much time ruminating on things that have happened, might not happen and are otherwise outside of our control or not important.
Paul recommends that we label challenges or potential challenges on a scale of where 10 is death. This quickly puts most things in their correct perspective.
Most people rarely get things in the range more than every few years yet some people behave like each day they are facing challenges that are 8's and 9's.
I would recommend this book to anyone looking to worry less, focus more and just generally improve their performance and general wellbeing. Paul has written a number of other books that I am now very interested in reading very soon. Feb 09, Karen Broughton rated it it was amazing Shelves: I've struggled for years to cope with anxiety various forms Depresion as well as other mental health problems.
I've tried various forms of help, medication, therapy without making much of a difference. I had looked at other self help books but i just couldnt bring myself to delve into them.
I was offered a chance to do a short S. O course and told it would make a difference. I I've struggled for years to cope with anxiety various forms Depresion as well as other mental health problems. I went along and was blown by the course, the ideas which are covered in this book as well as the bond that has grown up between us women on the course. I bought the above book and for the first time ever I understood.
It's light hearted to read, with a real sense of the author has been through tough times too, he wasn't just preaching.
Full of sound advice and valuable small steps to apply to reach a positive outcome. Now ive finished the whole book I am feeling more focused, more inspired, more ready to throat punch my "Doris Day" thoughts. Am now about to start another in this fab series of self help books. Feb 16, Tim rated it did not like it. I was made to read this at the request of a previous employer, admittedly I've never found self help books useful but this one in particular was the death knell to me for the whole genre.
