Share this on Facebook

This giveaway is sponsored by Penguin Life

Every day we speak around 16,000 words - but the voice in our head creates thousands more. Thoughts such as "I'm not spending enough time with my children" or "I don't have the confidence to do this presentation" are taken as unshakable facts, when it reality they are the judgmental opinions of our inner voice.

Emotional Agility gives you the ability to make peace with that voice in your head, achieve your goals, and live your life to the fullest. Susan David's deeply researched techniques enable you to unhook yourself from your negative emotional patterns. By holding our thoughts at arm's length, we can evaluate them and change our actions to match our values.

Susan David, the leading voice on emotions, offers a revolutionary approach that enables us to understand and embrace difficult emotions without letting them derail us.

This book is not a quick fix, but a new way of living.
