Free: A Love Attempt: Your Practical Guide to Love

Developing your emotional intelligence? Learn simple and practical techniques to cultivate your love competence….

Everyone wants love. We’re so desperate for it that we are frequently willing to take any deformed shape of it. But what if we can bring in the idea in a developed and genuine form to make it available to every person?

Morhaf Al Achkar obtained his PhD in education, and is currently a practicing family physician at the University of Washington. He was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer. Since then, his research has focused on the experience of patients living with cancers. His first book is based on interviews he did with 39 patients who live, like him, with advanced illness. He explored how these patients find meaning, cope, and build resilience. Using his deep understanding of philosophical concepts, Morhaf shares his understanding of love from the perspective of someone aware of his finitude.

By following his easy-to-apply practical exercises, Morhaf invites you on a journey of dialogue and reflection to improve your empathic abilities.

Inside A Love Attempt, you’ll learn:

+ The Pragmatics of love
+ How to love by recognizing and capturing the opportunity.
+ How to reconstruct what is being and learn about context and biography to communicate with love
+ How to become oriented to understanding and agreement to act communicatively with love
+ How to develop a strategy to reinforce and abstract some learning about yourself to become authentic with love
+ And much, much more!

A Love Attempt is the third book in Dr. Alachkar’s self-help series. The first was on Resilience and Meaning. The second, his memoir, was released only six months before the first draft of this project. In Being Authentic, he wrote ideas about love, but did not develop them sufficiently. So he is completing that project here.

Dr. Alachkar’s elegant but transparent manuscript is packed with thought-provoking insights and concrete action steps to make salient our native competency for loving, so we can then orient our next actions toward embracing love. If you want to learn the conceptualization of love and say “My next act is A Love Attempt!”, then you can’t afford to miss Morhaf’s essential guide.

The Science of Self Talk

The Science of Self Talk
Talking to ourselves – and learning to listen

We all speak to ourselves on a daily basis. Whether it’s out loud or an internal (or infernal) commentary, we all practice self-talk and, how we speak to ourselves can have a significant effect on our emotions and subsequent actions.

Some people’s self-talk is mostly about the future while, for others, it’s an internal dialogue about the past. Some self-talk is positive and upbeat, while other self-talk is harsh, critical or defeatist.

Self-talk can focus on other people but, more often than not, it is about ourselves – and is often negative.

If you listen carefully, you’ll notice that your inner conversation reflects thoughts and emotions. Self-talk isn’t random. It exhibits patterns that repeat themselves. And everyone has their own characteristic self-talk that is uniquely theirs.

In The Science Of Self-Talk mindfulness expert, Ian Tuhovsky explains how we can re-write the script when it comes to our internal communication. Through a series of simple exercises for use in daily life, you can understand your own self-talk in order to change the conversation.

Learn how you can listen to and understand your internal dialogue in order to change it.

Many of us practice negative self-talk by default – how many times have you called yourself an idiot or chastised yourself for not being good enough?

Negative self-talk is a harmful habit which can lead to anxiety, depression, and helplessness and, yet, this is something that most of us do on a regular basis. For many people, this is learned behavior whereby caution against boasting leads to self-criticism or self-deprecation. For others, this is a natural reflection of the self and one that can slowly corrode self-esteem. $0.99 on Kindle.
