Who am I? Why am I here? What is my purpose? How did I get here? What can I do to better my life? These are questions we all ask ourselves at one time or another. We are all on a road to self-discovery but each of us has our own unique way of reaching self-actualization. Throughout this guide, you will learn how your expectations, choices, and thoughts determine your outcome. What are the four types of communication and how can you execute each one more effectively? What are cognitive biases and distortions, and how are they affecting your life? Why are you failing to reach your goals and how can you create an action plan that you can follow? Unlike other self-help guides, Best is Temporary - Be Better by Joe Jekel requires a greater deal of participation by the reader, but in doing so you will understand the workings of the human mind, giving you all the tools you need to reach your greatest potential.
I was literally blown away by the contents of Best is Temporary - Be Better by Joe Jekel. It contains so much information regarding personal development. This is definitely not a book for someone who just wants a simple self-help book to find the motivation to change. This guide really digs deep into the human mind so you will understand the meaning behind every thought and action. I loved the self-efficacy and self-confidence comparison and the explanation of intuition and empathy. The Nine Interrogatives analysis was explained in detail but so clearly that anyone would be able to follow. This will help anyone make more informed choices. The teachings of Maslow, Jung, and Madzook really enhanced this guide and again explained so clearly. The questionnaires and exercises at the end of the guide were just the icing on the cake for me. It enabled me to bring all that I had learned throughout the book together. This is definitely not a guide for someone who likes to be told how to improve their personal development. If you want more than a self-help guide and to discover the true meaning of the human psyche then this guide is for you. Highly recommended.
