From the Inside Flap
Why is it going to work this time?
JfDI! is the definitive strategy for getting the personal change you seek. It works where other approaches fail because it accepts that for personal change we must have intellectual understanding PLUS emotional engagement.
For change we must have the desire but we must want to act upon that desire. We must:
· Have our brain engaged. We understand the relevant rational arguments, the personal cost-benefit analysis and the return on our time/energy investment.
· Have our heart engaged. We feel that this is right and we are excited about getting on with it we are passionate about it.
· Have our gut engaged. We have strength of purpose, we are managing any fear and determined to make it happen.
JfDI! will work on any aspect of personal change, assuming you want it. In this book we are concerned with individuals who have recognised a change that they want and are having difficulty achieving it. The emphasis is on the process of change rather than simply its aims; this is not about changes that might make you a better person. Well leave you to decide which changes you want. The seven illustrative examples are not chosen as the best ones to do, simply as the ones that most people ask for help on.
