Reframe challenges as opportunities, not obstaclesThere 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?
