Changing for Good: A Revolutionary Six-Stage Program for Overcoming Bad Habits and Moving Your Life Positively - forward by James O. Prochaska, John C. Norcross and Carlo C. DiClimente
Changing for Good is based on the work of psychologists that studied more than 1000 people who were able to positively and permanently change their behavior. The authors identify that change does not depend on willpower or luck, but instead follows a predictable course of stages. Once the stage of change is identified, strategies can be employed that will increase the likelihood of progress, maintain motivation and assist in achieving permanent change. This book offers self-assessment, case studies and example to illustrate the concepts. Whether your goal is to start saving money, stop drinking or end other self-defeating behaviors, this book can help you understand the process successful changers have used.
