Psychotherapist and life coach Corey Yeager believes the best therapy consists of simple conversations filled with humor, openness and curiosity. In his appealing debut self-help guide, How Am I Doing?, he draws upon that down-to-earth approach, astutely posing 40 thought-provoking questions aimed at deepening self-awareness and facilitating positive life change. Yeager came to prominence on The Me You Can't See, Oprah and Prince Harry's Apple TV+ show. Once en route to playing pro football, Yeager had to devise a plan B for his life after his dreams were sidelined by injury. He merged an enthusiastic love of sports with his empathetic, insightful nature by studying psychotherapy. Yeager currently works with the Detroit Pistons basketball team. His own story of reinvention dispels mental health stigmas and strategically draws out the best in people.
Each chapter in the guide poses a self-reflective question: Who is the most important person in your life? Who determines your joy? What do you most hope to change in your life? What mistakes have you learned the most from in your life? A concise format eases readers down a path toward enlarging their own self-perceptions at their own pace. Summations at the end of each chapter are coupled with further meditations--tough questions skillfully framed--encouraging readers to consider their own life stories in order to gain greater personal clarity.
Yeager addresses such issues as anxiety, mental toughness, letting go of the past, building confidence and more. Those eager to better understand themselves--and carefully assess life goals--will be empowered by Yeager's winning insights. --Kathleen Gerard, blogger at Reading Between the Lines
