The Choice Point: The Scientifically Proven Method To Push Past Mental Walls and Achieve Your Goals

Hachette Go Jun. 2023. 272p. ISBN 9780306830273. $28. SELF-HELP
When tennis champion Martina Navratilova writes the introduction to a book about the power people have over choices, it’s hard not to love it. This is a carefully laid-out and actionable book about how to look at goals and dreams in ways that are both courageous and realistic. It gives readers strategies for moving toward the lives they want by identifying ambitions, creating plans, weighing possibilities, identifying risks, and developing the resiliency to course-correct as needed. Whether one’s desired destination is Wimbledon or just an office a few cubicles up the corporate ladder, coauthors Rhodes, a British psychologist, and Grover, a U.S. executive coach and therapist, suggest that Functional Imagery Training provides the tools needed to get there. The book begins with guided self-reflection practices before moving into imagery training, which may seem a little woo-woo at first but ultimately comes across as a valuable, valid process, more grounded in processes and planning than in manifestation.
VERDICT An easily digestible guide to abolishing negative thoughts and self-defeating behaviors.
