"Outsmart Your Brain is an inspiring, illuminating guide that will expand your inner freedom and open the door to healthier, happier relationships. This book reveals the missing link to making your dreams come true." --Micheal J. Gelb, author of How to Think Like Leonardo daVinci and More Balls than Hands: Juggling Your Way to Success by Learning to Love Your Mistakes "The middle brain is like a genie in a bottle, anxiously awaiting our command to take mastery over our thoughts, feelings and actions. Outsmart Your Brain lays out an effective blueprint for unleashing and training this genie to guide us forward to succeed in the healthy goals that we set out to accomplish." Michael D. Hirsch, PhD, neuroscientist "Change your thoughts, you change your behavior" has long been the mantra for the personal growth movement. Everywhere we turn, from our families, friends and bosses to advertisements and pop psychologists, we hear the command, "Just do it." Yet no matter how hard we try, we can't seem to stop the negative mental chatter that leads to needless arguing, tension, frustration, and eventually a numbing process that restricts access to our joy and passion. What is the reason we can't stop the noise? We are under the spell of our over-protective brains. To feel more energy, stimulate creativity, increase persuasive powers and live healthier, more joyful lives, you have to wage war against your brain. Once you know how your brain works, you can harness the processes and consciously choose how you want to feel and act. Knowing how to shift emotional states at will is the most important factor in achieving success and happiness. Outsmart Your Brain! is full of exercises, examples and guidelines that teach you how to tap into your hidden mental powers to make better decisions and influence those around you to create the results you desire.
