Not Good Enough
Understanding Your Core Belief and Anxiety: A Handbook
by Sabrina Trobak

Do you suffer from anxiety and don’t know how to control it? Do you ever have angry outbursts and want to stop? In our society, most of us have learned to suppress our emotions. In fact, we often use coping strategies—like shopping, smoking, partying, eating junk food, binge watching TV, even getting angry—just so that we don’t have to deal with them. But by doing so, we only increase our anxiety. In Not Good Enough: Understanding Your Core Belief and Anxiety, Sabrina Trobak uses practical, mindful activities and strategies to help the reader better understand and manage their anxiety. First, she delves into the importance of understanding and then challenging your core belief. Your core belief—your self-perception—affects your present-day thoughts, actions, behaviours, level of anger and anxiety, and how you deal with your emotions. Your core belief is believing you are “not good enough, not important, not valued” or that you are “good enough, important, and valued.” Sabrina states that by understanding your core belief, how it was derived, and how it influences your everyday thinking, you will be able to recognize how your behaviour affects yourself and others, resolve and challenge your unhealthy behaviours, and create a long-lasting change so that you can feel more confident in your daily life.

“In her engaging self-help book Not Good Enough, Sabrina Trobak suggests that awareness of one’s beliefs can lead to a healthier, fuller life...[The book] promotes selfawareness as a means of breaking free from detrimental cycles” —Foreword Clarion Review **** “...An inspiring and practical self-awareness and self-empowerment workbook.” —Kirkus Reviews
