Why You Do What You Do

In practically every non-fiction book I’ve ever read there is one aspect of the book that jumps out and captures me. In Bobb Biehl’s book Why You  Do What You Do, that tool was reframing. In layman’s terms, to reframe is to look at a past event or belief from a new perspective and give the situation new meaning, taking the memory from a negative to a positive.

Biehl’s book includes questions for you to answer to discover your dominant childhood feeling, your dominant adult phobia, your dominant emotional need, and more. And you can write all your answers directly in the book. Biehl then leads you through “Fitting the Puzzle Pieces Together.” Appendixes include “Treatment Centers: Questions You Need to Ask Before You Decide.”
