Self coaching is about feeling better. It really is that simple. Everything we do in our lives is because we want to feel better. When we give-it feels good. When we help others-it feels good. When we accomplish something-it feels good. Whenever we feel bad-we are usually seeking a way to feel good. The reason we want to feel good, is because it is our true nature. Alignme ...more

Brooke Castillo is a brilliant coach. If you are a person who has lived through traumatic experiences and can't seem to get over them, this is the book for you. Much like Tony Robbins, she is using techniques of mind management. Teaching people to be in the driver seat of their own life, and not allowing external circumstances to influence how they feel about their life.

If a person is willing to do the work, it's deep work, and not the easiest. Emotions and a little bit of frustration comes out

I listen to Brooke (the author) regularly on her podcasts which have had a huge impact on my life. I now have read her book. She teaches the model.

Circumstance - what facts or occurrence are happening - these are facts of situation
Thoughts - what are your thoughts on the circumstance
Feeling - what feeling is being generated by your thoughts
Action - what behavior are your displaying as result of your feelings and thoughts
Result - what is final result of Actions

She teaches how to have an intention

I loved this book and Brooke's self coaching model so much that I am taking an extra life coaching program at her school. She's an incredible master life coach and this model is so effective for anyone looking to self-coach themselves or become a coach.

I highly recommend this book for anyone looking for growth and improvement. Brooke has a very straightforward, honest approach in her model and it is easy to learn and apply. Check it out, worth the read and likely re-reads.

This book has some good advice about how changing the way we think about a circumstance can change our feelings about it and the actions we take, and the ultimate results we get. The author lays out an easy to-follow model that clearly shows how we can actually change things in our life by changing our thoughts about them. I tried doing this with several circumstances in my life, and it really does work. As we change our thoughts about a circumstance to something more positive, our feelings abou ...more

I did life coaching with Jodi Moore (Bold New Mom) for 3 months last year and learned so much! The author of this book, Brooke Castillo is Jodi’s mentor so I was excited to read this book. I believe our thoughts have so much power, so even if this work may seem a little hokey, I know when I do it that it makes a difference. If I wasn’t familiar with the CTFAR model I probably would’ve spent more time reading the book and learning about each part, but working with Jodi for 3 months made this book ...more

Brooke Castillo introduces a powerful and straightforward model which readers can use to put all circumstances and thinking and emotions into a framework to make changes. I recommend this book to those who are ready and willing to observe their behavior and emotions - and are interested in making changes in their life. The changes can be small or large - the model introduced in the book can address all sizes.

Brooke provides and excellent model which you can apply in every part of your life and different situations. All the inputs of the model are detailed and exemplified so you the reader can create your own understanding of the model. You clearly must be open to change to applied this model, if you are in a negative area of your life, you can easily question everything that it is shown in this book, and that it cannot be applied.

A helpful, easy-to-understand book, which taught me a lot, although some parts didn't relate to me as much.

This is going to take a lot of practice, but I like the concept. We really have no full understanding of the capability of the mind.

A very quick to read book with a simple idea. Change what you think if you want to change the results. The book is good in that it tells you straight that this is not always easy to do.

This book is a great tool to keep your mind in check.
Started, never finished. Abandoned because I wasn't getting much out of it, repetitive to things I've already read and worked with.
