You Can Change Your Life book review

You Can Change Your Life
by Rob Yeung
Pan Macmillan, 2013
282 pages

As the new year approaches, the minds of many turn to resolutions: breaking bad habits and making positive changes. By the time March rolls around, however, many of those resolutions have been broken. Year after year, resolution after resolution, failures mount. How can one stick to those personal promises and actually change his behavior? Author Rob Yeung offers what he calls “easy steps to getting what you want” in his latest book, You Can Change Your Life.

Even with “easy steps,” the journey to change is difficult. Yeung, a psychologist, acknowledges the difficulty, but argues that by changing one behavior at a time rather than tackling an entire list (as many attempt at the beginning of the year), success is more likely. Yeung presents several studies, self-tests, and other helps to guide the reader towards the change he desires. Included after the main text is “The Change Manifesto” and “Motivation Toolkit” to help one stay on track.

If you are serious about making a resolutions that stick, implementing the suggestions in Yeung’s You Can Change Your Life could help immensely.
