“this book is fantastic… i have been a professional sportsman for 20 years winning 3 world titles..4 uk champs..4 masters titles plus many more titles… my journey has not always been the best in terms of how i have felt about it.. many times vowing to retire.. it has been that hard.. in this time i have worked with many people to try and help me through the journey… and in my opinion nothing has come close to how this book explains things.. this book really helps you make the decisions for yourself.. it gives you the tools to deal with all things life can throw at you.. it has enabled me to see the wood through the trees.. it has helped me see that i was not going mad.. i just was not able to understand how my mind the machine works..i now am able to play snooker and not feel that my self-worth depends on winning a game of snooker.. which i have done for years.. yes i still want to win.. but i don’t need to define myself through having to win every snooker game i play in..i now feel able to play.. and handle the negative thoughts which used to make me wanna lose and go home..and tell myself i did not want to compete..i had that mind set for years..
the book has also helped me make good choices in making time for the people who really matter in life.. this is called the troop.. and how much better life has got since getting the right people back in my life..this has made i massive difference to my life.. it is ongoing.. and needs you to put the work in.. it won’t just happen.. you need to make it happen.. the book really does offer simple but effective ways on how to really improve your life..i have read many self help books.. and worked with many people the field of self help.. and nothing comes close to this model.. anyone can get something out of reading the book.. its one of those books u just wanna buy for people you know..u just know they will thank you for it.. and say i really got a lot out reading the book…and let’s be honest .. what price can u put on being happy?..”
I have suffered for depression for most of my life, have taken the tablets, done the CBT, and psychotherapy with moderate results. 5 weeks after reading The Chimp Paradox I finally have a roadmap to my brain that works. I reward, exercise, and box my chimp and fill my computer with loads of postive autopilots. The net result is that I am finally in charge of my emotions rather than them being in charge of me. I have also bought many copies of the book for my team, my family, and my friends. Something for everyone here – a MUST READ book
