Get Off Your “But”: How to End Self-Sabotage and Stand Up for Yourself  By Sean Stephenson

Sean Stephenson delivers a powerful and practical debut in his book Get Off Your “But”. Sean Stephenson is a psychotherapist and professional speaker who reveals how to banish self-doubt and insecurity in a world where they may seem omnipresent. Beginning with the source of his own struggle, a rare and painful disease that causes his bones to weaken and break under minimal pressure, Stephenson offers a structured approach to a wide array of topics, including dating, weight loss, lack of motivation, friendship, finances, and goals. While his advice is encouraging and insightful, Stephenson’s text is also notable for examples, as he shares mottos and personal stories of enormous obstacles and accomplishments. Though his unwavering optimism can be daunting, Stephenson is empowering and uplifting throughout, and should prove helpful whether facing a lifelong challenge or a more immediate battle.

In addition to Sean presenting his own unbelievable life story, Get Off Your “But”, offers anyone who needs to conquer fears and insecurities a hand on guide for overcoming the forces of negativity and self sabotage. Sean will show you what it takes to overcome the big bumps in the road, eliminate excuses, end insecurities, and ultimately stand up for happiness and success in life.

Sean will essentially get you to deal with your “But” fears.

“But what if I am not good enough?”

“But what if there’s no time?”
