'There is an epidemic of insecurity in our society today. Many people are insecure and feel bad about themselves, which steals their joy and causes major problems in all their relationships.' 'The good news is that there is a cure for the approval addiction!' APPROVAL ADDICTION asks why so many of us have an overwhelming need for acceptance from the wider world - and provides the key to breaking free from this addiction. Joyce Meyer's groundbreaking book, now available with a new look for the B-format edition: * Demonstrates that you can accept who you are * Identifies the cause of our addictive need for approval * Helps you to be released from the chains of past * Guides you through steps to break the pattern for the future Joyce writes from raw, personal knowledge of how insecurity and low self-esteem - stemming in her case from damaging childhood experiences - can leave us feeling constantly frustrated and lacking real peace or joy. It was through embracing the knowledge that she is unconditionally loved by God that she found inner security and the power to live her life to her full potential.
About the Author
Joyce Meyer is one of the world's leading practical Bible teachers. Her TV and radio broadcast, Enjoying Everyday Life, airs on hundreds of television networks and radio stations worldwide. She travels extensively, holding conferences throughout the year, speaking to thousands around the world. Joyce has written nearly 100 inspirational books, including MAKING GOOD HABITS, BREAKING BAD HABITS, POWER THOUGHTS and BATTLEFIELD OF THE MIND.
Meyer, author of the million-copy bestseller Battlefield of the Mind plus more than 60 other books, addresses the constant need some people have for approval. This need stems from insecurity, which, in Meyer's own case and in the case of many others, arises from abuse-physical, verbal or emotional-sometime in the past. After years of struggle, study and attempts to live out biblical teachings, Meyer happily reports that she now lives for God's approval alone. For readers beginning the journey to recovery, she offers biblical exposition and sound-if unoriginal-self-help advice. The first step, she says, is accepting who we are and where we stand in God's eyes. "We must learn to think about and believe in our righteousness," she declares. The second step is facing our approval addiction and the feelings of shame, guilt, anger and unforgiveness that come with it. Finally, we must break our behavior patterns in the future. Meyer admits that she "will always be a type-A... in fact, most of the time I am type A+." Her writing bears out her self-assessment: it's strong, pointed, no-nonsense and even pushy. But Meyer knows what she's talking about, truly loves God and wants people, with God's help, to overcome their addiction to human approval. Her goal? "I want you to become addicted to Jesus!"
