DESCRIPTION:   Paperback

We typically have little control over our thoughts, but we often invest them with a lot of authority-even when they contradict what our experiences tell us to be true. Take a moment right now and think There's a hungry grizzly bear sitting next to me. 

Chances are you didn't take that thought literally and run screaming from the room. But what if instead you had thought, I'll never get a better job, I'm boring, or No one loves me? Just like that terrifying grizzly, these ....more garden-variety thoughts are just words and pictures that pop into our minds. But often we take thoughts like these literally and let them trick us into avoiding the lives we really want to live.
