New York Times bestselling author Dr. Gary Small’s breakthrough plan to improve your personality for a better life!
Experts in psychiatry and psychology have long believed that our personalities are essentially set from early childhood and remain consistent throughout life. However, the latest scientific research contradicts this long-held assumption. New compelling evidence indicates that we can change our personalities – either on our own, with the help of a therapist, or a combination of the two – and meaningful personality change can be achieved in a snap! – as quickly as 30 days. These groundbreaking findings have shattered the false belief that we are locked into our negative personality traits – no matter how much they hinder our potential happiness and success.
As you read SNAP! you will gain a better understanding of who you are now, how others see you, and which aspects of yourself you’d like to change. You will acquire the tools you need to change your personality in just one month – it won’t take years of psychotherapy, self-exploration or re-hashing every single bad thing that’s ever happened to you. If you are committed to change, this book will provide a roadmap to achieving your goals and becoming a better you.
From New York Times bestselling author, head of the UCLA Longevity Center, and expert in neuroscience and human behavior, Dr. Gary Small, a practical look at the key components of personality development and tools and techniques for bringing the positive aspects of your personality to the forefront so you can become more successful, attractive, happier, and psychologically healthier.
What, Me Change My Personality? By Gary Small, MD, and Gigi Vorgan
Think of a person you admire. How would you describe her personality? Is she outgoing, warm, or conscientious? Do you think of her as funny, confident or generous? Perhaps you wish you were more like her in some ways.
Consider someone you don’t care for. What is it about his personality that bugs you? Is he anxious, short-tempered, or unreliable? You probably don’t try to emulate that person.
Now describe your own personality. Are you extroverted and popular? Efficient and organized? Perhaps you’re high strung or moody? Are there any qualities about yourself that you would change if you could? If your answer is yes, you are not alone.
Research shows that the vast majority of people do want to alter certain aspects of their personality, and not just a little bit. Many desire profound personal improvements but don’t even know that change is possible. This was one of the main reasons we wrote SNAP! Change Your Personality in 30 Days.
Personality defines who we are as individuals. It is the sum of our unique character traits and is driven by our distinctive patterns of thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Long believed to be set by early childhood, our personalities drive how we act and react in the world.
Mental health professionals have long believed that our personalities are set in early childhood and remain consistent throughout life. However, new compelling evidence shows that we can change our personalities – either on our own, with the help of a therapist, or a combination of the two – and meaningful change can be achieved in as little as 30 days.
These groundbreaking findings have shattered the false belief that we are locked into our negative personality traits, no matter how much they hinder our potential happiness and success. In fact, because our personalities affect every aspect of our lives including our relationships, health outcomes, and career success. And it doesn’t require years of psychotherapy, self-exploration, or re-hashing everything bad that’s ever happened to you. If you are truly motivated, SNAP! can provide the tools you will need to achieve your goals and become the person you want to be.
