We are a society that applauds drivenness. The slogan admonishes be all that you can be. But this you-can-have-it-all attitude can become a harmful compulsion, Doctors Helfelt, Minirth, and Meier offer a compelling look at drivenness-gone-bad,MoreWe are a society that applauds drivenness.

The slogan admonishes be all that you can be. But this you-can-have-it-all attitude can become a harmful compulsion, Doctors Helfelt, Minirth, and Meier offer a compelling look at drivenness-gone-bad, sharing ground-breaking insight to prevent positive behaviors from becoming addictions. They share a profile of behaviors that often develop into compulsions: speculative investing and risk-taking- perfectionism in work and play- a desire to keep up with the Joneses materially- and obsessive dieting, exercise programs, or cosmetic surgeries.

Ironically, these are characteristics of top performers. But it is when we have a mistaken notion that mastery of these behaviors will meet our emotional hungers or offer deep personal satisfaction that it becomes a compulsion-and it becomes a threat to our mental well-being and even our health. Compelled to Achieve helps readers identify their compulsive drives and suggests touchstones for living a life of balance-where compulsions are tapered to positive behaviors worthy of applause.
