Sabotage: How to Silence Your Inner Critic and Get Out of Your Own Way (English Edition) Kindle电子书
We all have a relationship with self-sabotage, a tendency to put barriers in the way of our progression and our happiness - at home and at work, both on and offline.
Sabotage is a book about challenging these behaviours, digging a little deeper into why that unhelpful voice can creep up on us. Procrastination, jealousy, inner critic: how can we overcome these obstacles? How do we stop getting in our own way?
Exploring real-life stories of success and setbacks from leading cultural voices, Emma Gannon searches for experiences, solutions and ways to look differently at what's really holding us back.
This is the handbook you need to slay your own sabotage.

Released in late September by Andrews McMeel Publishing, this non-fiction title fit my description of the perfect self-help book.
My perimeters? It helped.
I dislike those self-help authors who appear to think that filling my head with their lengthy resumes will somehow convince me to swallow their message hook, line and sinker.
Perhaps that is why I am seeing a therapist. Hmm.
But this author was "asingin' my song," as my mother once said.
Gannon is a self-described woman and works as a "creative" in the fast-paced world of filmmaking, writing, marketing, and speaking.
Hopefully, she won't be speaking about me. Oh wait, this book could have been written for me. Bummer.
Gannon is ultra-experienced in the "Interaction-With-Jealous-Coworkers-And-Friends-Who-Are-Girls-Or-Cads," department. Gannon has dished and been dished enough to realize that she too, actively engaged in self-sabotage. So active in fact, she could write a book.
Hmm. I feel that experienced too. What would my book be titled? How to Ensure You Destroy Your Own Day, Everyday? Accurate. I wonder how many people would read it?
Here are a few questions intended to identify toxic relationships in your life, according to Gannon:
Are you scared to tell them good news?
Well, that eliminates most of my nuclear family.
When you tell them good news, do they look pleased or pained?
Seriously? Some of my relatives try to stop my good news from happening.
Do they try to hold you back from trying new things:
Ever heard of the word GUILT?!
You feel yourself becoming less and less confident around them?
Are you supposed to feel confident after being with them?
Gannon's book is so readable, or in this case, listen-to-ale, because she pegs the human tendency to set oneself ablaze with thoughts and actions that burn our own self-worth and desire to keep climbing toward our potential straight to the ground.
Hey, you commuters!
Sabotage is an audiobook, easy to access, and quick to understand. It's cheap therapy from someone whose been there, (remember, you are NOT alone,) and a much more fulfilling choice for tolerating bad driving and For-No-Reason-Traffic, than listening to your favorite shock jock; imbibing yourself silly before you hit the road - figuratively or literally; or in California at least, finding … ah … OTHER ways to ease your tension in life.
WARNING: If you dare listen to Gannon's Sabotage, you might just find all those "friends" and "helpmates" in your past life were actually right about some pretty unfortunate things and that after all your fighting, the root of your problem … is you.
Gannon lists classic self sabotage most of us are guilty of and recognize in ourselves, as well as less noticeable traits we have; procrastination and self-doubt. She really makes you think about the real motive behind your behavior. What triggers you to work against yourself? Is it fear? Is it insecurities? Do you even notice when you are doing it?
Not only does she provide personal examples of her self sabotage, she includes quotes from mental health professionals and others who have recognized their own self sabotage. It was insightful and comforting to know others are going through the same issues within themselves.
Along with examples of self destructive behavior and reasons why, Gannon provides tips to overcome yourself. Tips to recognize your self harm.
Listening to the audiobook really helped to drive her points across to me. It is a short, quick, helpful guide to recognizing and acknowledging yourself. Sabotage is full of insightful information and would definitely recommend it.
