Reframe challenges as opportunities, not obstacles

There is a mountain of hype around positive thinking. But have you noticed that positive thinking doesn't, well, work? That's because positivity is just an emotion, and at the end of the day it doesn't change the reality of the situations we face. The Simple Shift turns positive thinking on its head and transforms it into something practical - a way of adopting beliefs that can change the way you see reality and make major obstacles into easily resolvable issues.

This book helps you develop the self-awareness to know when and how your thoughts are holding you back. Instead of just trying to ignore negative thoughts or pretend that problems don't exist, why not actually change them, using useful thinking? Control your perception and start to turn your life around with The Simple Shift.

* Overcome life's obstacles by transforming the way you perceive problems
* Discover why what's "true" doesn't matter as much as what's "useful"
* Triumph when times are tough by adopting a simple shift in thinking
* Uncover the valuable lessons you've already learned by overcoming past challenges

This book provides a clear and practical path for retraining your brain to see opportunities rather than obstacles. It's not about putting on rose-coloured glasses and pretending that problems don't exist. Rather, you can choose to train your mindset towards what is useful, guiding you to better outcomes in life, love and work.
