You Are More Than That
A Guide to Embracing the Spiritual Being Within and Becoming Fully HumanBook - 2013
You Are More Than That looks into your richest strategies for coping with yourself and becoming fully purposeful beyond mere comfort zones. Shaping up for peak performance in body and mind takes deep self-understanding, and this book opens with an invitation to become self-aware and name the processes that hinder growth and even bind you to underperformance. These can be social or biological processes that limit your being. How do you break free of underachievement? How does stress in your day-to-day life become a barrier to knowing who you are?
We can rise above stress through the mind-body tie. New tests on the placebo response, where health improves based on treatment regimens of pills with no effective medicine in them, show that sheer belief in ourselves and our own resolve can lift us from self-limiting beliefs. Even if we may fall short of our hopes and expectations, Dr Raj shows that we are better than we think and can find strength through greater self-understanding.
