Summary

Voici un ouvrage sur la relation affective et profonde, un livre d’espoir en ce début de siècle où les difficultés relationnelles mènent souvent aux conflits non résolus, aux "faire semblant", à l’incommunicabilité, voire à la rupture. Par ses expériences relationnelles auprès de ses proches et ses expériences professionnelles au Centre de Relation d’Aide de Montréal, l’auteur a un jour compris que l’amour ne suffit pas pour qu’une relation affective soit durable et satisfaisante. Pour assurer son épanouissement et sa continuité, il faut apprendre à communiquer authentiquement. Toutefois, la communication authentique ne résulte pas seulement de l’application de trucs ou de recettes-miracle qui n’apportent souvent que des changements temporaires et superficiels. Elle dépend surtout d’une volonté d’approfondir ses relations affectives. Ce livre dans lequel l’auteur s’implique personnellement a précisément pour but de vous ouvrir les portes de l’intimité. Vous y découvrirez, notamment, les différents niveaux de communication, les principaux obstacles à l’échange authentique et les "facilitateurs" d’une relation vraie.

Psychological Triggers: The Hidden Influences Behind Our Actions, Thoughts, and Behaviors. Human Nature, Why We Do What We Do, and How to Control It

Summary

Understand, avoid, and defeat the subconscious causes of your irrational and self-defeating behaviors. It’s only human nature. A psychological trigger is something that causes us to act out of urgency - not correctness or even happiness. It’s a switch that is flipped outside of our consciousness. This is fertile ground for some of the worst decisions of our lives. Seize control and of your impulses and make better decisions. Psychological Triggers is an introduction to yourself - your impulses, your desires, and everything in your subconscious that drives you to action. It answers the question “why did I just make a terrible choice when I know I shouldn’t have?”  We are all slaves to our triggers, and this book seeks to identify them to better battle them. We might think we are making our decisions independently and out of free will, but you’ll discover that to be far from reality. Master your psychology, master your life. Peter Hollins has studied psychology and peak human performance for over a dozen years and is a best-selling author. He has worked with a multitude of individuals to unlock their potential and path toward success. His writing draws on his academic, coaching, and research experience. Think clearly and triumph over your human nature. The triggering effects of social pressure and conformity. How everyday emotions are behind some of the most powerful triggers. Natural, biological, evolutionary human drives - can you regulate them? Simple thinking traps we all fall victim to. The notion of free will and whether it truly exists. Beat psychological triggers, reclaim your free will and irrationality. Is purely rational thinking, devoid of emotion and human drives, a reality? Probably not. But you can certainly live free from your worst impulses and irrational hunches, which are what psychological triggers create more often than not. See yourself thrive from consistently making beneficial decisions and defeating your primal psychology.

Cada principio es dirigido científicamente y diseccionado para que sea tan accionable y útil como sea posible. Aprenderás cómo los mejores trabajadores ejercen la autodisciplina de manera consistente, así como lo que nos impulsa a actuar a un nivel instintivo y psicológico.  Este no es sólo un libro; es un mapa de ruta de la psique humana y te permitirá lograr exactamente lo que te propones hacer, siempre. Cuando entiendas lo que motiva tus impulsos y las verdaderas raíces de la autodisciplina, podrás superar tu incomodidad ocasional y concentrarte en lo que realmente importa.

No importa lo que quieras hacer - puede que quieras convertirte en un CEO o simplemente hacer limpieza de manera más consistente - la autodisciplina es una de las habilidades más importantes de la vida porque es la habilidad de hacer y ejecutar.  Obtén tu copia hoy mismo haciendo clic en el botón comprar ahora en la parte superior de esta página.  Please note: This audiobook is in Spanish.
