The idea that you could be more but got in your own way should wake you up in the middle of the night. Dave Hollis used to think that “personal growth” was just for broken people, then he woke up.

When a looming career funk, a growing drinking problem, and a challenging trek through therapy battered Dave Hollis, a Disney executive and father of four, he began to realize he was letting untruths about himself dictate his life. As he sank to the bottom of his valley, he had to make a choice. Would he push himself out of his comfort zone to become the best man he was capable of being, or would he play it safe and settle for mediocrity?

In Get Out of Your Own Way, Dave tackles topics he once found it difficult to be honest about, things like his struggles with alcohol and his insecurities about being a dad.

Offering encouragement, challenges, and a hundred moments to laugh, Dave will help you:

- Discover the way for those of us who are, like he was, skeptical of self-help but wanting something more than the status quo
- Drop negative ideas about who we are supposed to be and finally start living as who we really are
- See our own journeys more clearly as he unpacks the lies he once believed—such as “I Have to Have It All Together” and “Failure Means You’re Weak”
- Learn the tools that helped him change his life, and may change your life too

Get Out of Your Own Way is a call to arms for anyone who’s interested in a more fulfilled life, who, along the way, may have lost their “why” and now wonders how to unlock their potential or be better for their loved ones.

The author's points were repetitive and delivered in a very boring way. honestly I tried so hard to complete the book. the narrator's voice was fine. but it doesn't deserve more then 1 star for an overall motivational book. The points felt forced and like the copying writing styles of other authors who've made books like this before him. you can find better motivational speakers than Dave Hollis.

Not a bad book, but to be honest it seemed more relationship oriented then life. I listened to the whole thing but I was anxious for it to be over I did have some take-a-ways though

I love this book and love Dave’s delivery of it. Dave is so likable, has a great voice and great inflection and animation. I love the lessons he shares through his personal stories. He’s funny too. I’m really glad you wrote this Dave. Thank you!
