Author: Jeffrey E. Young
Publisher: Scribe Publications
Learn how to end the self-destructive behaviours that stop you from living your best life with this breakthrough program. Do you… Put the needs of others above your own? Start to panic when someone you love leaves — or threatens to? Often feel anxious about natural disasters, losing all your money, or getting seriously ill? Find that no matter how successful you are, you still feel unhappy, unfulfilled, or undeserving? Unsatisfactory relationships, irrational lack of self-esteem, feelings of being unfulfilled — these are all problems that can be solved by changing the types of messages that people internalise. These self-defeating behavior patterns are called “lifetraps,” and Reinventing Your Life shows you how to stop the cycle that keeps you from attaining happiness. Two of America’s leading psychologists, Jeffrey E. Young, PhD, and Janet S. Klosko, PhD, draw on the breakthrough principles of cognitive therapy to help you recognise and change negative thought patterns, without the aid of drugs or long-term traditional therapy. They describe eleven of the most common lifetraps, provide a diagnostic test for each, and offer step-by-step suggestions to help you break free of the traps. Thousands of men and women have seen the immediate and long-term results of the extraordinary program outlines in this clear, compassionate, liberating book. Its innovative approach to solving ongoing emotional problems will help you create a more fulfilling, productive life.
People reinvent themselves for different reasons—to have a better life, to be more respected, to make more money, to be happier, to develop a stronger body, to build better relationships, to get to know God, or to have a more fulfilling life. If your ears perk up when you hear about the lawyer who gave it all up to become a fashion designer, or the auditor who ditched her accounting firm to start her own pet clothing company, and wonder how they did it, this book is for you. If you are curious about what is typical and what is rare among people who attempt to reinvent themselves—the person who yearns for change but remains stuck or the person who leaves it all for something completely different—you will also read these pages with interest.

"Sometimes in our private and passionate search for meaning some of us embrace various art forms as a medium for the soul’s expression. Examples of this form of spiritual expression could be found in the highest level of creativity employed in the creation of the variety of masquerades, related artifacts and effects associated with the production of the Trinidad and Tobago Carnival. My poems speak for the unheard, queries into, suggest alternatives, and exist with their own creative individuality and magnetism. In my view poetry like painted art, sculpting, expressive music and the expression of art seem to exist as a form of liaison or a type of messenger of spiritual correspondence between those inner felt undercurrent of existence and its external manifestations.xplore and attempt to redefine conventionally held concepts and beliefs in light of the species improved and expanded awareness. They also aspire to influence the subconscious mind and conscious reasoning processes to examine alternative methods of reasoning by utilizing and combining: visualization, word association with foreign rhythms and ideas from official and unofficial point of views. The poems comprising this collection make a brazen and sincere attempt to manifest these very characteristics. Through each poem I make a sincere and deliberate attempt to urge each reader to question the very nature of your existence and particularly those ideas and beliefs about reality in general and human existence which you have come to know and accept as the “absolute” or “gospel truth”. In this “new-age” period of heightened awareness I implore you to question and pay attention to the nature of your “gut feelings” your “haunches” and your most basic inspirations. Embark upon a personal adventure through the inner space of life with the same tenacity and enthusiasm with which we explore the outer space of physical reality. As we continue to evolve spiritually each of us should make a sincere attempt to sense the very uniqueness of our “god-like” being, self-worth and our natural alignment with the source of all which exists, universal intelligence or “God”. Additionally, we must allow our ambitions and expressions its natural freedom as they attempt to assist us in our search for meaning.
