Few of us are immune to the ideas we assimilated as children. We learned how to get approval or disapproval by creating “false selves” or facades that would fit in and succeed with the “right” jobs, relationships, material possessions, etc. Even if we rebelled against conformity, they still affected who we are today. As adults we sometimes feel anxious or depressed because we are loved for our hip and cool glitzy exteriors and accomplishments and not our “authentic” selves. In Ira Israel’s book, Israel teaches you how to recognize the ways your mind worked (consciously and subconsciously) to get your emotional and psychological needs met as a child; then Israel provides a step-by-step path to hack your mind’s maladaptive patterns by accepting everything that made you who you are today, finding your true calling, and giving you new tools to create the authentic loving relationships that your heart truly craves.
