Your life has a root core that, once understood, unlocks a powerful force to create the life the way you want. Key questions and an amazingly clear “map” are now at your fingertips so you can “live by design.”

In this groundbreaking work, Dr. Phil challenges you to find your “authentic self”—that person you have always wanted to be, but were too distracted, busy, or scared to become. Instead you have created a “fictional self”—taking on the identity of who you believe you are supposed be. The incongruence between these two selves is what leads you to feel that your life is incomplete, unbalanced, and more difficult than it should be.

In Self Matters, Dr. Phil helps you to demystify your self-concept, and learn how to reclaim your authentic self. You can learn to think beyond the excuses and fears that have masked the person you want to be. By facing the cards life has dealt you, you can relearn how to best react to them.

Self Matters is one of the most forward-thinking works on self-concept and self-esteem ever published. We get only one chance in this world. Dr. Phil shows all how to make the most of it.

Key elements to identify and bring into action-oriented focus include:

  • What are the ten most defining moments of your life?
  • What are the seven most critical choices you have made to put you on your current path?
  • Who are the five most pivotal people in your world and how have they shaped you?

Quotes & Awards

  • “Thoughtful and serious…McGraw’s notion of making change is not a simple one—it requires readers to examine every aspect of their daily lives—and it’s likely that some readers may not be able to make all the changes he advocates. But his book offers a thorough, realistic resource for those who are committed to turning their lives around to get what they really want and need.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “McGraw reads Self Matters with what might be called a locker-room intensity. McGraw’s earnest message tells listeners to get their acts together and take control of their lives.”
