What are you willing to do to get what you really want? The Hardline Self Help Handbook challenges readers to find out in this fast-track course of self-discovery and self-empowerment. By taking the "KISS" approach to self help, Hardline cuts to the chase and gives readers a simple, practical guide for self-understanding and transformation. Using real world examples and a straightforward no-holds-barred approach, the author opens a vein and shows how we cause ourselves unnecessary conflict, confusion and pain—and how we can change it. Often funny, sometimes sad, and always revealing, the brutally frank firsthand stories help readers connect with situations in their own lives, see opportunities for making different choices and find the courage to make them. Each chapter provides practical yet powerful techniques that can be used to make positive changes quickly in areas such as relationships, health, fears, motivation, self-respect, forgiveness and acceptance (it's not what you think) and dealing with negative people. The chapters conclude with a "Line It Out" exercise that asks the reader to answer simple questions that build step by step toward the ultimate goal of self-discovery: knowing what you really want in your life and how to get it.
