\> --Jack Canfield, co-author of Chicken Soup for the Soul "This book makes change seem fun rather than a chore."<
\> --Christine A. Padesky, PhD, co-author of Mind Over Mood, Director, Center for Cognitive Therapy, Newport Beach, CA Always Change a Losing Game has been published widely and continues to be popular and useful. Whether readers are dealing with compulsive eating, addiction, a growing family, an unhappy relationship or an unsatisfying job, or have a seemingly insurmountable challenge ahead of them, Dr. Posen provides practical guidelines that will help them change their losing habits and become happy. Now
updated for our fast and stressful times, the book is written in everyday language to make it easy and reassuring. The connection to sports is understandable for readers thinking about their health, relationships, problem solving, self-esteem and productivity. Always Change a Losing Game explains how to make changes when important segments of their life -- work, relationships, family -- are not working out. But like all games, there has to be a plan, and it starts by changing the rules and focusing on three key areas. Awareness -- Be aware of the game you already playing. Is it working? What are the common losing games? How do I recognize one? Be aware of mind traps and the power of beliefs. Look at how you behave. Choice -- Change your thinking. Choose your focus. Keep and use your sense of humor. Choose your lifestyle. Take
eaks. Pick your behavior. Find a support system. If it's not working, stop doing it.
Understand why people don't solve problems. Permission -- Give yourself permission to change. Make it happen. David Posen uses real-life stories of ordinary people (including himself) and everyday situations to show why change is necessary, beneficial and achievable.
