  • Grow a practice of positive self-talk
  • Let go of guilt and regret from your past
  • Develop mental health strategies for what to for moments when you're depressed or anxious
  • Increase your confidence and embrace your emotions


Each of the 40 questions is paired with a short, thoughtful reflection from Dr. Yeager, along with prompts and self-care strategies to help you look at yourself in the mirror and come into alignment with who you want to be.

So join the conversation; nothing is off-limits here. Come check in with yourself and take these small, simple steps to journey toward a more honest and harmonious way of living.

I love this book. There are two principles that have been powerful for me, in this short time that the book has been with me. And I have the feeling that the different chapters generate in conjunction a great ambience of positivity. I will be extending my review when the book will be released. I could not wait to thank for the advanced copy

Uplifting and inspiring book

Short self-help book with simple to understand language and bite-sized chapters . It was an enjoyable read and ideal for when you need a motivational boost.

The 40 questions in this book can change your life if you take the necessary time to explore them. Have a journal handy to get the most out of this book. Psychologist and Detroit Piston’s Team Therapist, Dr. Corey Yeager knows how to bring out the potential in people.
“Who knows you best?” is one of the 40 questions and it’s a bit of a trick question in that what Corey is really getting at is, “Do you trust yourself?” The questions asked in this book are multi-layered…the initial question opens you up to think much more deeply about the beliefs, attitudes, and stories you tell yourself that might be holding you back. This book is a great tool to use for personal growth with or without working with a therapist. It’s a wonderful resource to bring your vision for your life into sharp focus. Having this book to refer back to time and again when workingvtoward individual goals will be invaluable.

This book was incredible , I can’t recommend it enough. We don’t check in with ourselves as much as we should and we are the only person we will always have, so it’s time to get to know ourselves and this book helps with that

Dr. Corey Yeager provides personal anecdotes to readers as he invites us to ask ourselves challenging questions. He encourages readers to "look into the mirror" and face the version of themselves that they ARE and focus on the version they want to become. Each chapter includes a personal, reflective writing activity to begin challenging your own views to become the best version of yourself.
I cannot recommend this title enough for people who are feeling stuck, or are looking to make a change in their lives.

**I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher, through Netgalley, in exchange for an honest review.

I appreciate that this is a really approachable and accessible self-help book designed to empower people to, well, help themselves! The questions and exercises are direct and uncomplicated, which is a refreshing change in the self-help book sector. Sometimes you don't want an overwhelming, overly-academic approach to figuring out who you are and what you want... you just want someone who will sit down and talk to you. Dr. Yeager is doing that as much as possible in this book, so it feels more like a conversation or journal prompts than therapy (albeit a one-sided conversation).

I can see this being very useful for people who don't know where to start or want to dip their toes into self-help gently.

This would make a great gift for the high school or college graduate in your life. The questions are something that would be important to consider in that transitional "finding yourself" time. However, there is value and something to learn throughout for anyone of any age, at any point in life. If you've done some therapy or work on yourself, you may find some of this is a refresher, or you may gain a new way to approach a familiar topic. I really enjoyed that there was the question with guiding information, followed by a way to think deeper and/or activities to help you get to the root of the answer. A worthwhile read.
