“Hostage to Myself” is not simply a how-to book for motivation – it introduces a new paradigm to shift ones way of thinking and successfully unlock the readers full potential to free themselves from the cages that once held them captive.
Praise for ‘Hostage to Myself’
I’m not typically big on “self-help” books, but this one I like. It draws on the author’s own experience as a police detective, hostage negotiator and international peace keeper, and – perhaps most critically – as a victim of abuse and sabotage at the hands of an alcoholic father. In this book, the author, J. Paul Nadeau, introduces a new word into the self-help lexicon: “hostaging”, i.e. the idea of being taken captive by our own thoughts, regardless of their source or origin. The real-life stories of victims he encountered and lived experiences, and the lessons he drew from those experiences about setting ourselves free from these paralyzing emotional chains, is what this book is about. Included as a bonus is an Appendix contributed by David Gilbert, Integrative Therapist, in using Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) to accelerate the process of finding your freedom again. This is a book you will want to read.
