Lies We Tell Ourselves: The Psychology of Self-deception

In my personal and professional life, I have come to believe that self-deception is our biggest obstacle to living a fulfilling life. We humans are excellent liars because lying helps us avoid admitting truths that cause us the most psychological pain. That said, the lies we tell ourselves come with profound consequences to ourselves, our loved ones, and our communities.

This book is intended to help us become more honest with ourselves so that we will live more fulfilling lives. For only when we acknowledge who we really are do we have the opportunity to change.

"People frequently ask me questions like: 'How can I be happier? How can I have more successful relationships? What is my purpose in life? How can I help myself change? How can I live a more fulfilling life?'

The truth is that the key to answering these questions is knowing yourself - as honestly as possible. This book is intended to help you do just that."
