A concise version of this book,
Get YOURSELF into the habit of painting pictures in your mind’s eye of how you really want to be.
Fantasize about YOU being confident, happy, prosperous, wealthy, sociable ,,,,,, etc
The more you do this, the more you generate good feelings, the more your subconscious mind take notice, the more your subconscious makes YOU act like that.
Habits, mental or physical, take 90 days to form ….. GET BUSY!!
Think failure to achieve failure, think SUCCESS to achieve SUCCESS!
You get more of what you focus on.
In a book by a world famous hypnotist, he tells of an experiment conducted with a group of manic depressives. Their task was to collect photos of any happy times in their life and stick them to surfaces such a fridge doors along with smiley face pictures. They had to have them all over the home and in the work place if allowed.
Each time one of these depressives looked at a ‘happy time photo’ or smiley face picture, they had to force themselves to picture a happy situation in their mind so to allow good feelings.
The experiment was a three month period. When assessed after the three months, it was found that the brains of those in experiment had been “rewired” and total contrast to the former manic depressive state they’d been in. They were now happy and had an optimistic outlook on life.
Can’t comment on the content because I can’t read it. I’ll buy a decently printed second hand copy instead.
good luck, T A P
It is an amazing and exhilarating voyage of discovery for anyone first dipping into Cognitive Therapy.
This book expresses the insight that our thoughts drive our feelings. It helps us get aware of repetitive thought patterns that may be destroying our ability to live our lives joyfully. And then it gives simple logical ways of changing those patterns.
It is conventionally scientific in its discussion, and presentation of ideas.
This book makes you feel happy and happier just reading it.
It also gives exercises that improve the reader's introspection so there is something to work on.
If you are committed to discovering more happiness in your life, you would certainly do the exercises.
They consolidate the insightful gains obtained from reading the ideas.
Wish I could give it six stars!
Further, if you feel you need to follow-up more on this, try his other books - The Feeling Good Handbook and Ten Days to Self-Esteem.
They too have superb insights on the reasons for emotions and attitudes.
The exercises may seem grunge work at first, but they are invaluable steps in the entire process.
My only criticism is that Kindle needs to sort out how it processes tables and figures. The print size can't be increased within these and I was squinting at the tables which are absolutely crucial to the programme, barely able to make out the words. Buy the print version.
I have since bought several copies of the book to gift to friends
Not an emotional reason for the books' effectiveness but rather scientific research/proof which in my opinion raises this book above all the self-help books into a new category of a Therapy Textbook
