Free Yourself From the Shackles of Negative Thinking: Eliminate the 7 Positive Killers and Start Living a Fulfilled Life Now! - MAX FISCHWELL


Free Yourself From the Shackles of Negative Thinking: Eliminate the 7 Positive Killers and Start Living a Fulfilled Life Now!

Are you sick of tired of hearing the same generic advice on overcoming negativity? Sick of hearing things like "just keep thinking positive and everything will get better" from almost every positive thinking book you seem to read?

Of course when things don't get better and you look for more advice it just seems that the so called experts will tell you that you are not thinking positive often enough. So just keep thinking positive thoughts at all times and then more good things will eventually manifest in your life.

Well if it was that easy then wouldn't we all be happy, optimistic individuals leading a positive fulfilled life? The truth is that telling a negative person to just think positive does nothing to address the root of the problem. And the problem is usually from within.

So what is this book about? Well for starters I can tell you what it is not about. This books is not just simply about positive thinking and how to stay positive. Nor is it simply just about telling you to get rid of your negative thoughts. If you want just simply that then you can find several positive thinking books that will tell you just that as they assume that, that's what you want to hear. But not necessarily what you need to hear.

Rather this book is about what causes one to think negatively in the first place. Only by discovering this can we then focus on overcoming a negative mindset and eventually start to lead a positive life. In this book; you will learn:
The 7 bad habits (positive killers) that must be eliminated if you want any chance on overcoming negative thinking Simple techniques that anyone can apply right away to break these negative habits so you can start to conquer your negative mindset. Learn not only to start thinking positive but maintain a positive mindset so you can have better relationships, health and can be more successful in virtually almost if not all aspects of your life
This book will teach you these and much more. Based on my years of studying, research and personal experience I have concluded that there are 7 very common reasons as to why someone may be negative. And if you do not address these than "just thinking positive" will do absolutely nothing for you.

I refer to these as the "Positive Killers." In this book I will address what these are and how to overcome them so you can stop living in constant torment by having a negative mindset. I am not saying this book has all the answers. But the advice in this book is what I always try to live by and has significantly helped me which leaves me no doubt it will help you out as well.

Here is what just one of my readers has to say about this book:

"Free Yourself From the Shackles of Negative Thinking by Max Fischwell is
a book everyone should read. It shows us straight up that negative
emotion and energy will take you down and manifest misery. Max unveils
strategies to flip your life attitude to positive and touch every aspect
of your life positively. Loved it!.." - Cathy Wilson

So go ahead and find out what the 7 positive killers are and start living the fulfilling life that you deserve!

It's Not All in Your Head

One of the greatest challenges people face when dealing with an unpredictable disease such as Multiple Sclerosis is learning to overcome the psychological burden of not knowing what each day will bring. MS is a true roller coaster of emotions and dealing with these feelings is a critical issue for people living with the disease. According to WEBMD, symptoms of depression severe enough to warrant medical intervention affect up to half of all people living with MS.
It's Not All in Your Head is a cognitive-behavioral approach to overcoming the depression, anxiety,and stress that goes hand-in-hand with MS. Dr. Farrell helps individuals and their families develop a better understanding of the effects that MS has on mood levels and anxiety and offers a plan of simple remediation in a self-help format.
It's Not All in Your Head shows that:

A Legacy of Madness: Recovering My Family from Generations of Mental Illness - Tom Davis


A Legacy of Madness: Recovering My Family from Generations of Mental Illness

The story of a loving family coming to grips with its own fragilities, A Legacy of Madness relays the author's journey to uncover, and ultimately understand, the history of mental illness that led generations of his suburban American family to their demise.Dede Davis had worried, fussed, and obsessed for the last time: Her heart stopped beating in a fit of anxiety. In the wake of his mother's death, Tom Davis knew one thing: Helplessly self-absorbed and severely obsessive compulsive, Dede led a tormented life. She spent years bouncing around mental health facilities, nursing homes, and assisted-living facilities, but what really caused her death?

A Legacy of Madness portrays Tom Davis's captivating discoveries of mental illness throughout generations of his family. Investigating his mother's history led to that of Davis's grandfather, a top administrator at one of the largest psychiatric hospitals in the country; his great-grandfather who died of self-inflicted gas asphyxiation during the Depression; and his great-great grandmother who, with her eldest son, completed suicide one tragic day. Ultimately, four generations of family members showed clear signs of depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and alcoholism--often mistreated illnesses that test one's ability to cope.

Through this intimate memoir, we join Davis on a personal odyssey to ensure that he and his siblings, the fifth generation,--recover their family legacy by not only surviving their own mental health disorders but by getting the help they need to lead healthy, balanced lives. In the end, we witness Davis's powerful transition as he makes peace with the past and heals through forgiveness and compassion for his family--and himself.

About the author Tom Davis is the Jersey Shore regional editor for Patch.com and an adjunct professor of journalism at Rutgers University. This is his first book. He lives in Metuchen, New Jersey.
