Book Overview
Our thought lives have incredible power over our mental, emotional, and even physical well-being. In fact, our thoughts can either limit us to what we believe we can do or release us to experience abilities well beyond our expectations. When we choose a mindset that extends our abilities rather than placing limits on ourselves, we will experience greater intellectual satisfaction, emotional control, and physical health. The only question is . . . how? Backed by up-to-date scientific research and biblical insight, Dr. Caroline Leaf empowers readers to take control of their thoughts in order to take control of their lives. In this practical book, readers will learn to use - The 5-step Switch on Your Brain Learning Program, to build memory and learn effectively - The Gift Profile, to discover the unique way they process information - The Mindfulness Guide, to optimize their thought life and find their inner resilience Dr. Leaf shows readers how to combine these powerful tools in order to improve memory, learning, cognitive and intellectual performance, work performance, physical performance, relationships, emotional health, and most importantly a meaningful life well lived. Each of us has significant psychological resources at our fingertips that we can use in order to improve our overall well-being. Dr. Leaf shows us how to harness those resources to unlock our hidden potential.
Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Unlock your hidden potential Caroline Leaf marvelously addresses the single most important issue of our lives--that we can learn to control our brains, take charge of our minds, and improve how we feel, think, and live. We do not need psychiatric medications: we need knowledge, reason, and love to move beyond our suffering to lead fulfilling lives.-- Peter R. Breggin, MD , psychiatrist and author of Guilt, Shame, and Anxiety Dr. Leaf exposes the destructive nature of unhealthy thoughts and teaches you how to harness the power of your own mind. Read this book if you are looking to free your mind of chaotic and unproductive thinking, increase your IQ, and take command of your life.-- Lillian Lockett Robertson, MD, OB/GYN, FACOG Wow! Another amazing book by Dr. Leaf! We have brilliant minds that help us transform the barriers we face into stepping stones, leading us to a place where we can reach our full potential--not through excessive or unhealthy work schedules but by being mindful in everything we do, from the thoughts we think to the foods we eat to the ways we work and rest. Understanding the wisdom Dr. Leaf is sharing can make a huge difference in changing your life for the better.-- Irinel Stanciu, MD , fellow of the American College of Endocrinology The brilliant Dr. Caroline Leaf rightly dismisses neuromyths that are taken for truth in our current society and gives us hope by bringing to light God's methodology to address the very origin of the outward manifestation of these 'mind' problems. Another triumphant work, Dr. Leaf!-- Avery M. Jackson , neurosurgeon, CEO, and founder of the Michigan Neurosurgical Institute PC
