Why Good People Make Bad Choices: How You Can Develop Peace of Mind Through Integrity
Suppose that four simple instinctual directives helped to bring about the survival of the human species. While good for survival purposes, those directives have also been at the heart of most human problems.
Why Good People Make Bad Choices takes you on a journey of self-discovery by way of new insights about the human condition. The instinctual directives we follow are described as--the ego's agenda. Due to this agenda, we experience problematic feelings, maintain maladaptive thoughts, and engage in behaviors that we know are not in our best interest--indeed, we make bad choices. The solution is integrity. With this book you can learn how to:
Create integrity, and recognize it in others.
Create peace of mind.
Resolve problematic feelings that may interfere with sustaining integrity.
Create a self-image you can be proud of.
Transform any unwanted behavior or thoughts into new valued behavior.
Understand and manage anger, worry, guilt, bad habits, anxiety, and depression.
Why Good People Make Bad Choices is for the individual who wants to experience a more harmonious inner nature, or establish a new direction for their life.
"As you begin to consistently live out your belief system, one choice at a time, your trust in the outcome of integrity will be the incentive to continue. Positive results will prevail, and you will be evolving."
