Is That Your Card?: Think Your Way Into a Winning Hand for Success in Your Personal Life, Work and Mental Well-being (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


We're all dealt certain 'cards' in life, the daily challenges we need to overcome in order to thrive. This book shows you how to develop your own personal 'operating system' to change your perceptions, minimise dysfunctional thinking and direct you towards more success in life.

Tackling the problems and challenges of everyday life begins with our thinking. Our thoughts and behaviours can propel us forward or sabotage our goals and relationships. This practical, eye-opening book draws on the philosophy of the ancient Stoics and the ground-breaking therapy of Dr Albert Ellis to help you achieve your goals.

With practical exercises throughout, Is That Your Card? will have you thinking about your mindset, until it's as easy as ABC - with 'ABC' itself being the cornerstone of the thinking model to adopt. You will learn simple techniques to right the ship when harmful, negative thoughts take over because it is our beliefs that decide how we look at a situation. You'll become more aware of your emotions and see how modern day 'emotional intelligence' was practised in the ancient world.

The act of thinking will never be the same as you gain more confidence, self-esteem, improve your relationships and look at anxiety and anger in a completely different way.

Most of the conversations we have in life are with our self - and many of them are critical. Our self-talk is a powerful tool that can help us develop our potential. Our mind can help us to reinterpret the stressors in life. Just remember: don't believe everything you think.
