Manage your Mind

Want to know more?   Read the book.

Without mind management our minds have a mind of their own, they do what they do in automatum and where they go we follow. So much of what we think, feel and do is determined by our minds of their own accord which means that we can readily become less than who we are and not who we want to be. To make matters worse, left to their own devices, our minds are responsible for a huge part of our suffering. So much of what goes on in our minds is related to unrealistic expectations, stress, negative judgements, pressure to perform and irrational hopes and dreams. We have the ability to see ourselves in perspective and we can override our automated responses, but this will not happen with deliberation. Read this pioneering work written by clinical psychologist, Anne Sacco to understand how your brain works and how you can train your brain to do what you want it to do.
