This Year I Will...: How to Finally Change a Habit, Keep a Resolution, or Make a Dream Come True

M. J. Ryan, Author Broadway Books $16.95 (226p) ISBN 978-0-7679-2008-7
Fast forward a few months (or a few weeks) into any given new year, and most peoples' resolutions have been either forgotten or abandoned. As one of the creators of the bestselling Random Acts of Kindness series, author and life coach Ryan outlines a concrete and practical strategy for following through on a resolution while dealing with all of life's other ups and downs: ""One of the tricks about change is that we have to figure out how to do it in the midst of everything else."" In encouraging, easy-to-read chapters, Ryan tackles the obstacles that keep readers from their goals and provides helpful tools and language to quell negative, self-defeating thoughts. Championing affirmation and cognitive therapy strategies, Ryan urges readers to switch from ""why"" thinking to ""what could be possible"" thinking, using ""right brain"" skills to achieve success: ""The right brain is future oriented. It's where our aspirations, our dreams, our longings reside."" Ryan's handy self-help will prove welcome for anyone seeking gentle but solid help in achieving personal change.
