Get Out of Your Own Way
A Skeptic’s Guide to Growth and Fulfillment
HarperCollins Leadership, 2020
A former self-help skeptic offers guidance for overcoming the lies that keep you from a richer, fuller life.
The Hollis Co. CEO Dave Hollis always thought of self-help as a crutch for “broken people.” Then his wife, best-selling author Rachel Hollis, embarked on a journey of personal growth and left him behind. As she continued to reach new heights and rack up successes, he wallowed in his mediocrity, unable to get unstuck. Finally, after a lot of hard conversations and therapy, Dave Hollis identified 20 misconceptions that got in the way of his personal development, such as “real men don’t show emotion” and “failure means you’re weak.” Using himself as a case study, he shares revelations about how to move beyond the “just okay” version of yourself to become the best you can be.
