An excellent read for anyone who suffers from self-esteem issues and/or self-defeating thoughts and behaviors. Also an excellent resource for clinicians who work with these individuals.
While most of us are well aware that "love is the answer," we frequently encounter difficulty when we attempt to live our lives according to that seemingly lofty principle. We're challenged the moment someone "pushes our buttons" and leaves us feeling righteous anger for their thoughtless words and actions. The beauty behind CHANGE YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR LIFE is that it provides us with effective tools for bringing real feelings of love into all of our most challenging real-life situations, such as: parenting, competitive sports, business transactions, and even legal disputes and divorce. Authors Jampolsky and Cirincione are pioneers in the field of attitudinal healing, and have assisted people overcome their inner conflicts while facing a wide variety of debilitating physical, emotional, and mental challenges. This wealth of real-life experience helps CHANGE YOUR MIND, CHANGE YOUR LIFE, present its revolutionary ideas in crystal-clear language with down-to-Earth suggestions. Rather than see our relationships with others as sources of most of the problems in our life, we can learn to appreciate how each and every relationship is a golden opportunity to experience love. It is possible to heal all your relationships by releasing preconceived notions about others along with all grievances. Imagine for a moment what your life will be like when you know how to be peaceful and loving inside, regardless of what is happening all around you. Imagine that you can speak your truth in every moment, while always maintaining peace of mind as your primary goal. Now imagine how the whole world will be when lots of people begin doing this -- and you'll realize why this book is so important right now!
