Since childhood, our experiences and interactions have shaped the running narrative of who we are and how we view ourselves. When those interactions are painful, many of us have a tendency to internalize the negativity, translating mean or selfish messages given to us by family, friends, or teachers during our youth into truths about who we are--our flaws, failures, and shortcomings.
Through practical, easy-to-understand principles and techniques, as well as real-life examples, What Went Right
teaches you to recognize and intervene on self-defeating thought processes. Through these exercises, you will learn how your thoughts drive feelings that influence your behaviors.
