Smile For No Good Reason Lee L.Jampolsky

Trying to change your life's circumstances without addresssing your way of thinking is as effective as painting over rust - it will only look good until the rust breaks through again. Attitudinal Healing is a way of achieving lasting and fulfilling happiness, without having to somehow change our social status, religion, or even our income bracket. It is a systematic way to respond to life's challenges with peace of mind and confidence rather than fear, anger, or guilt. Dr. Jampolsky presents the twelve principles of Attitudinal Healing, with compelling vignettes to help apply these life-changing principles to everyday life.

- One of the few books currently offered on Attitudinal Healing

- The popularity of Attitudinal Healing is reflected by the hundreds of centers worldwide and the existence of an international organization, NAHI

- Continues the ground-breaking work of Attitudinal Healing pioneers Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., and Diane Cirincione, Ph.D.

- A practical approach to living and health that - through two decades of grass roots growth - has changed the lives of thousands of people

- Motivational, uplifting, and often humorous vignettes to inspire the heart, stimulate the mind, and heal the soul

From the Author:

I love to write because I learn while I’m writing. I never approach writing a book as an expert. I believe that we are all teachers and students to one another. I write as a fellow human being that wants to learn more about peace and happiness. “Smile for No Good Reason” was written in this spirit.

People can and do begin smiling for no good reason when they find that in order to be happy they only need to change their own thinking and attitudes. I wrote this book because our culture can use a few more smiles from the heart that Attitudinal Healing can bring. By reading and practicing the material in this book, you can bring to the world a beautiful and peaceful smile. With family responsibilities and work deadlines to meet it can be tempting to become sidetracked and stressed by a multitude of little problems and to lose sight of what really matters. I believe that in this increasingly complicated world what is needed is to remind ourselves of what is most precious. “Smile for No Good Reason” serves this purpose.

I have noticed the changes people make are often only a short-term fix, with stress and conflict slowly creeping back in. This book was written after several years of seeing that changing life circumstances without addressing your thinking is like painting over rust: It will look great for a while, but eventually the old rust will slowly break through the new paint. After reading this book whatever changes you make will contribute to your lasting happiness rather than lead to another disappointment or failure.

In short, this book was written because I want all of us to recognize who we really are. When we do this we can't help but smile. Read this book and see how Attitudinal Healing can help you go through your day, responding to life's challenges with peace of mind rather than with fear, anger, and guilt. It is not as hard as you might think.

From the Inside Flap:
