I received a free copy of this product from Baker Books Bloggers in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

As someone who can get anxious and worked-up over the least little decision, this book just seemed to jump right out at me, shaking its pom-poms wildly all in front of my face:

Seriously, I am that person who excitedly receives a $20 gift card and immediately thinks of all the treasures collected on my "wish list" (usually some book or a game), only to sit on said gift card for over a year because I can't make a decision on which item to choose.

What difficulties do I face with just adding something to my shopping cart, you ask? 


Forget about the fear of getting it wrong, because I'm paralyzed by the thought of not choosing the best option possible. 

Yep, I get trapped in a cage of indecision, racing around the what-if hamster wheel, and just feel like I'm never going to escape.

And this can happen just over a $20 gift card that I was excited to use to buy some book or game that I've been wanting as a treat.

Imagine what I'm like when shopping for a house!

In steps author Anne Bogel with her helpful book for people just like me.

She posits that not only can we overcome the negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, we can replace them with positive thoughts patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into our lives.

She does this by offering actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how we deal with questions both small and large.

I really want to finally use that gift card, people.

Reading this book will provide you with a logical framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy and freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life--like actually getting to read the new book or play the new game that you've been hoping for!

I don't know about you, but any quick-read book like this that might help me stop second-guessing myself and free up my mental action for something more constructive sounds like a win!

If you've ever struggled with making decisions, or just experienced perfectionism-induced anxiety over wanting to make the best decision, then this book would be a super selection for you to grab. 

Really, don't even worry about deciding whether or not to buy the book. Just pick it up here and start zipping through its helpful pages right away.

And as for me? 

I have a new game to go buy.

Can you relate to the anxious-filled, perfectionist nuttiness that I go through while overthinking everything?  I'd love to hear!  Either leave a comment below or email me at lisahealy (at) outlook (dot) com.
