The real deal when it comes to overcoming habits
on 7 August 2014
Okay, not everyone is going to welcome the information in this book because it tells the truth. Overcoming habitual addictive behaviour is not easy. It will take time. But it IS possible. This book will show you how. I have been in personal development for twenty years, written books and delivered seminars and talks. But I still secretly hoped that I would not have to feel or face some of the emotions that came from negative programming. We are all, it seems, looking for that magic button. Now, sometimes it exists. If you use Morty Lefkoe's work or are brave enough to tackle MindLines and Winning the Inner Game by Michael hall, you can create immediate changes of mind and feelings. But that takes time and serious study. YANYB teaches you to recognise the feelings that go with negative thinking and from almost page 2 SHOWS you that your brain has actually been altered by your negative thinking. Henceforth, even when you want to access the 'wise advocate' part of you it constantly gets run over by the truck which your brain has become. You get taught a simple (but not easy) four step process and the chapter explain what each step means in detail. I have been using this for a week or two now and every time I recognise the pain of rejection in my mind I use the process. It still hurts. It's still unwanted. But each day I am waking up stronger and any negative thoughts are lasting less and less time (to be fair, I combine this with mind clearing meditation as well which I am sure helps). This book is absolutely fantastic and I have no doubt that I am getting the real, wiser me back. Combine this with the book The One Thing Holding you Back and you will make great progress.
