A wise, warm and practical book.

I don't generally buy self-help books but Robert McFadden book on 'negative self talk' intrigued me. Robert has years of experience as a life coach. He has welcomed clients from all backgrounds and has coached them in their personal life, career and business. His book struck me as wise, helpful and deeply human. I read the book with a pencil at hand to highlight bits and paragraphs that I wanted to read again. Robert talks about many aspects of life with the warm voice of a story-teller. He proposes for instance an everyday mindfulness model, he explains how to get to focus on the task at hand, how to capture your thoughts, how to better understand yourself and how to hopefully discover needs you long neglected. His thoughts on how to embrace feedback, on how empathy is an active, willful thing one can do, on how to deal with a sense of helplessness when faced with an enormous task ahead and, surprisingly, on how procrastination can also be considered as a relief from stress. There is also an enquiry model in the book as a tool for the reader to determine what he needs and what concrete steps he should take. Robert draws not only from his clients, but also from other books and vividly illustrates his thoughts and ideas. I was for instance struck by his tale about Miles Davis, and how this musician sought out his role models to learn from them in order to grow as an artist. Most of all, Robert repeats that we have to be gentle with ourselves. I’ll keep his book close and hope to reread the parts that spoke most to me. I recommend it warmly.

An engaging and light-hearted approach to a subject that can be seriously debilitating. Robert McFadden draws us through his own poignant experience with negative self-talk. He shows how being gentle with ourselves, coupled with our curiosity, confidence and compassion, can set the stage to learn to respond to self-talk in new and effective ways. Key messages from a select group of respected authors are beautifully integrated into lessons learned from sessions with his own coaching clients. We come to understand the role of self-talk and see how it can impact our perceptions, our self-esteem and our level of stress. Practical steps are laid out with client examples and easily accessible processes, like The Everyday Mindfulness model and The Enquiry Toolkit, to develop new awareness and most importantly new habits. With humor and straight talk, this book makes it appealing and manageable to dive into the challenges we face.
