Availability: Ready to download

From the author of the New York Times and international bestseller Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life. In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses—to recognize and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back. I From the author of the New York Times and international bestseller Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop presents a no-holds-barred guide to breaking through our cycles of self-sabotage to get what we want out of life. In Unfu*k Yourself, Gary John Bishop told us it was time to stop making excuses—to recognize and take responsibility for the negative self-talk holding us back. In Stop Doing That Sh*t, he builds on that message, teaching us how to stop self-sabotaging behavior. Bishop explains how our destructive cycles come down to the way that we’re wired. He then identifies different types of people and the ways we fu*k ourselves over: We can’t save money. We land in the same type of toxic relationship. We’re stuck in a rut at work. Analyzing why we act the way we do, including what our common grenades are that blow up our lives, Bishop then shows how we can interrupt the cycle and stop self-sabotaging our lives. Written in the same in your face style as Unfu*k Yourself, Stop Doing that Sh*t will help us get in touch with our psychological machinery so we learn to interrupt negative thoughts and behavior before they start, allowing us to give our attention to something else, and start to find success in the areas we thought we never could. We can take back our lives. We may have fu*ked up in the past, but Stop Doing That Sh*t will show us how to break the patterns in order to live the lives we yearn to have.

    Dang. I was hoping for Jen Sincero-esque storytelling, wisdom & humor. This did not deliver. I felt like he didn't say anything! 227 pages could have been condensed to about 27. Dang.

    I had mixed views on the previous book, Unfu*k Yourself, and about a third of the way through the latest one I was still unsure if this was a series I'd get much out of. Mostly so far I'd just felt that I'd been shouted at. Then we get to the 3 Saboteurs. I know I'm guilty of self sabotage but have to work out exactly what I'm doing and why.  I found this part the most useful as it looks at how you view yourself, other people and life in general.

Then I managed to make loads of notes and come to a few resolutions. There's no magic answers in the book but a few good pointers as to how to start taking control and move forward without the sabotage.  The author is described as having a no nonsense point of view but I still ended the book feeling like I'd had the telling off my mother never gave me however I got a really good starting point for how to fix something that has been troubling me.

Visit Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/Lawchamp John Lawchamp’s Review: I like this book, but it just wasn't something that I haven't heard before. Just the regular recycled stuff in other motivational books. If you know me, I have a lot of experience with this type of writing style and I have a large group of book dedicated to this genre of self improvement and development. So I tell nothing but the truth. However, if you are looking for a short motivational read, this might do you some good. Here you'll learn that your predictions about yourself, other people and life in general are, indeed, holding you back from living the life that you want. Gary speak about the three saboteurs that are affecting all people today. 1. Conclusions of Yourself 2. Conclusions about other people 3. Conclusions about Life What I did like about this book was that he was straightforward and wasn't giving you the helping hand and quick fix that would make your life ultimately better in a week or month. He clearly let you know that this is a life journey and that you are here to learn from your mistakes, but that your mistakes and past are not your final ruling. You can still become what you want through hard work and looking forward to the future.

    As far as the genre goes, this book was incredibly refreshing. Not only does he say “the universe does not have your back,” but he also tells you all the shit you do or don’t do in your life is your own fault. I mean, them’s fightin’ words in the world of self help. How dare he tell people they’re their own problem? Genuinely enjoyed that part of it. But aside from the shock and awe of how Bishop breaks rank, I can’t say it was a revelation to me.

Highly recommend for people who keep “falling off the wagon” and are sick of their own bullshit.

Here's what makes this one stand out from the rest - The fact that you can't change the past and in constantly trying to model your present/future in a change from your past isn't realistic.

Here's what makes this one stand out from the rest - The fact that you can't change the past and in constantly trying to model your present/future in a change from your past isn't realistic. If you are operating from a place of "I want a future that doesn't include [insert whatever thing from the past that you are trying to overcome]", then you are inevitably setting yourself up for failure. Instead, this book wants you to identify the things you have come to believe about yourself, people, and life. Once you understand those things then it's time to ACCEPT them. At that point, you can look to your future for what you will do in your present to get you there. Gary John Bishop pulls in a lot of references to philosophers and psychologists that are insightful. Through his writing, he guides the reader to dig deep and identify the "truths" they carry around in life. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading again as I unpack the things I have convinced myself are truth rather than simply my perspective.

    Nothing absolutely mind blowing here that you may not have already heard or read in other books. But a delightful straightforward and bluntly honest new way to look at your life and maybe why you’re not happy with every aspect of it. I think everyone could take away something from reading this.

    85% of book was focused on defining the saboteurs and only 15% to finding the way forward. Disappointing. I like the authors “tell it like it is” format; it just seemed rushed at the end and half baked. Not a lot of depth here.

    Not super revelatory, and it's going to piss a whole lot of people off who will have to start taking responsibility for their choices, or lack-thereof, but it's a quick and decent reminder. to get off your ass and do something. Also, I highly recommend you listen to this one on audio because the author reads it to you in his Scottish brogue. Ain't nothin' wrong with that.

    As always Gary continues to swears like a trooper in all of his books, but his passion and efforts to change and help people's mentality is showing especially since I listened to the audio book narrated by none other than Gary himself with his Scottish accent which I highly recommend. Again such a short, cut to the chase kind of book so it'll definitely be helpful for people willing to change.

    This book is just plain bullshit! After spending a lot of time thinking about the things the author says we need to know there is no point at the end. Now that we know the issues he says are so important what do we do about or with them? What a waste of time and money.

    Nothing new however, this book takes you through self-revelation that is at times painful to think about, but helpful in the revelation.

    Definitely good for anyone that needs a kick in the arse to get motivated and has issues with self-sabotage. If you're easily offended, perhaps this book isn't for you.

A lot of the information that I have read weren’t new necessarily to me. But the author’s way of talking to you was good and his sarcasm made me laugh many times. The book explains to you what you are actually doing and what you shouldn’t do, and what you should do but you are not doing… Some parts of the book made me feel embarrassed because how true they are. Truth has to be told… A lot of people want to change their lives but aren’t willing to do a thing about it. What is the quality of your life if you lived it complaining, blaming and making excuses for being stuck where you are.. mentally, emotionally and physically? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This book is not a magical pill. If you are not willing to change your life by doing the work and what is necessary then there is no one can help you. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

    In Stop Doing That Sh*t Gary John Bishop tries to get to the heart of self-sabotaging behavior, by attempting to consciously access destructive sub-conscious beliefs. I'm generally not a fan of self motivation/help books. I read Bishop's previous book Unfu*k Yourself, and while I found it entertaining, it didn't really do anything for me. When I heard the premise of Stop Doing That Sh*t, I was even more skeptical. It was not long after I started, however, that things began to click.

It made me look back and consider some of the driving forces in my life, and how I was cycling through the same unproductive behaviors. If you are looking for a new perspective that might help you break out of your rut, this may not be the book for you. Bishop's style is loud and somewhat abrasive. Not everyone enjoys being yelled at by an angry Scotsman. If, however, that doesn't bother you, Stop Doing That Sh*t might be a helpful read.

By forcing you to face full-on your own defeating behaviors and negative self-talk, you are forced to confront your own bullshit and illusion. Chapters 12 and 13 were the best, in my opinion. Recommended for those brave enough to be 100% in the moment.....This will make you think.

    I think I’ve read just too many of this sort of motivational-with-added-snark sorts of books. Too long, irritating tone that isn’t as funny as it thinks it is, and took too long to unpack the “what is wrong with you” part before getting to, and spending too little time on, the “how to fix it” part.

    An extremely blunt, in your face look at how your past influences your present. Using the future you envision to focus on rather than the negatives from your past is an important aspect to creating the life you want to live.

This is not your light and fluffy self-help and there's no sugar coating happening here.

    A nice, sweary, get over yourself self help book, the author (go for the audiobook for the accent and scottish ranting! Sooo much better!) gives you a proverbial kick in the head. You want the dream life? Live life like you’re going to get there and stop dragging the past around. No easy answers here so if that’s what you want you ain’t getting it, but if you enjoy a good “smarten up buttercup” this is your book!

    Shouldn’t be done, by the likes of me, as an audiobook. Much as I like / need the audio format to chip away at my tbr pile, the inventory and introspection required pencil and noodle time, that a-format doesn’t dovetail nicely with. Material was useful. A bit like Daniel’s writings over the years. Useful. Familiar. Good. I liked the sponge word picture.
