In "The Un-worried Brain: Achieve More, Stress Less, and Turn Worry Into Action" I felt I'd found a friend who knew what I've learned and so much more. Not just a smart neuroscientist (impressive as that is) but someone who understands me and can relate to real life.
I encourage you to think more about how you think. Brad's book is a good read, regardless of where you are now, it will move your thinking forward
Pendergraft shows us how to notice what is happening with our own thoughts, how to determine what patterns we would like to run instead, and then install those new patterns. Those who follow Anthony Robbins or NLP will definitely want to read this book and practice the tools in it. Perhaps the most important advancement with this book is its recognition of how emotions hewn our habits. When we attach emotion, the habits are re-inforced. Pendergraft allows us to take control of this aspect of our natural internal wiring by having us CELEBRATE when we notice we are engaging in a pattern we want to change (i.e. a Bad Habit). This way, we teach the mind that it is doing a good thing by noticing this pattern, and with the celebration, we interrupt the pattern, then we are in an emotional state (i.e. positive, instead of feeling bad for ourselves for noticing bad patterns) where we can then move to replace it with a new, more empowering pattern.
The Un-Worried Brain is written to allow people to control thinking, focus, language and what they see and hear internally in order to make sure those internal patterns serve us to motivation, instead of getting us stressed, worried and largely immobilized with overwhelm. This is critically important for well being and achievement. Let's face it, stress, anxiety and overwhelm are not good for us, and are usually produced by our own internal patterns.
Yet this book is more than a set of tools to help with stress, in that it is an actual formula for taking on ANY habit you want to replace with a new habit. You can use these tools for exercise, finances, relationships and other areas where ritual and pattern are key. The book is written in a way that utilizes various tools in the writing style and presentation itself to ensure the lessons and tools are absorbed by the reader. I will always remember this book every time I put on a pair of running shoes.
It's a quick read, made mostly of exercises - so you can pick this book up and go through a few exercises, including Pendergraft's FIRE method any time you are inclined to make a lasting change with your habits!
