What if you could see around the corners of your life? Wouldn't it help to know what the most challenging days of your life would be like BEFORE they hit?

There are certain days in life that stand out because they are among the toughest that you or someone you love will experience. Your quality of life and your experience on the journey through this world are a function of how you handle these days when they arrive. Will you be ready? Will you be strong? Will you survive and be better for it, or will you cave?

In Real Life: Preparing for the 7 Most Challenging Days of Your Life, best-selling author and talk-show host Dr. Phil McGraw is here to help you prepare to confront what he believes are the seven most common critical days that you or a loved one are likely to face.

  • Loss - the day that you or someone you love has their heart shattered by death, divorce, or losing something of great value.
  • Fear - the day that you realize you have lived your life as a sellout and that every choice you have made up until this point was dictated by other people's expectations, not based on your own goals and desires.
  • Adaptability Breakdown - the day that the pressures of balancing your responsibilities and needs, along with life's demands, have become way too overwhelming, and you realize that you are in way over your head.
  • Physical Health - the day that your body or that of someone you love breaks down because of illness, trauma, or disease.
  • Mental Health - the day that the mind breaks down and betrays you or someone you love.
  • Addiction - the day that addiction takes over, and you or your loved one look a powerful destroyer in the face and realize that you are not in control.
  • Existential Crisis - the day that you or someone you love lose the purpose, compass, and connection to meaning in life and have no answer to the question Why? Download and start listening now!

      " Well, after all. This is TV's Dr. Phil. While the core is sound, I somewhat tire from the preachy and finger-pointing daddy-knows-best approach to living well. Honestly, if the only thing I have to depend on in life is me for strength and security, then I am in trouble. "
