Chimp Paradox - Throw Starfish Episode 005
The Chimp Paradox is hands down one of the best books I have ever read...it's given me such an insight and understanding in to to own behaviors, as well as others (that I'm still seeing deeper and realising more about every week)...I recommend it to people all the time...I use refer to it and explain it in my training sessions...it really is brilliant!
It was actually my Dad who first introduced me to it, when he bought tickets to a talk Dr Steve Peters was giving here in Sheffield...I purchased the audio book on the way back from the lecture, I can't recommend it enough as a way to understanding why we do the things we do, why we lose our tempers, why we start with the best intentions and don't always follow through, why make the same mistakes over-and-over again!
I've struggled to get out of bed my entire life and I'm not saying I've perfected it yet, but the 1-2-3-4-5 technique for getting up is AMAZING!
