Richard Carlson - Stop Thinking Start Living (2nd Hand Paperback)
From the author of Don't Sweat The Small Stuff . . . and it's all small stuff.
Revolutionary in its simplicity and accessible to all, this bestselling book offers common-sense methods that allow you to let go of depression and tap into natural joy.
In this indispensable handbook, Richard Carlson demonstrates how we can change everything in our lives - earn more money, meet new friends, get a new job - yet still feel dissatisfied.
Happiness, he says, is not 'out there' but within, a state of mind that is independent of circumstance: 'If you begin to see that your thoughts are not the real thing - they're just thoughts and as thoughts they can't hurt you - your entire life will begin to change today.'
Carlson's step-by-step guide explains:
- How your thoughts determine how you feel.
- Why thinking about problems only makes them worse.
- That thoughts come and go - you are free to choose at any moment which to hold on to and which to let go.
- Straightforward methods for conquering depression.
- How to dismiss negative thoughts and discover inner contentment.
- How to overcome lifelong pessimism and start really living.
