THE END OF STRESS Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain by Don Joseph Goewey
We all know that stress is serious. If ignored too long, it becomes life-threateningly serious. Yet 83 percent of Americans are doing nothing about it. Don’t be one of them. There’s now a solution to stress that literally rewires your brain for a life of doing well, and being well, on your way to flourishing.
The most important brain discovery in the last 400 years concerns a simple but powerful shift in attitude that can change a brain wired for stress into a brain powered for success. This specific shift literally rewires the brain to deliver the full measure of intelligence, creativity, and emotional balance that enables you to flourish instead of struggle. It’s a higher state of mind anyone can attain stimulating the higher brain function that unblocks the health, wealth, and love we all desire.
Fail to make this shift and you will lack the brainpower to fulfill your dreams. Your stress provoking brain will continue to dump toxic stress hormones into your system, shrinking brain mass, limiting brain bandwidth, depressing your emotional set point, and shortening your lifespan.
You can solve these problems and fulfill your aspirations. The End of Stress: Four Steps to Rewire Your Brain guides you through an evidence-based process that achieves this powerful shift.

If you have excellent goals and high dreams, they will pull you through all kinds of down days and down seasons. Strong, powerful dreams, like a magnet, pull you through those times.

FINDING MEANING IN DIFFICULT TIMES with Viktor E. Frankl M.D.
Psychiatrist Viktor Frankl’s memoir has riveted generations of readers with its descriptions of life in Nazi death camps and its lessons for spiritual survival. Between 1942 and 1945 Frankl labored in four different camps, including Auschwitz, while his parents, brother, and pregnant wife perished. Based on his own experience and the experiences of others he treated later in his practice, Frankl argues that we cannot avoid suffering but we can choose how to cope with it, find meaning in it, and move forward with renewed purpose. Frankl’s theory-known as logo therapy, from the Greek word logos (“meaning”)-holds that our primary drive in life is not pleasure, as Freud maintained, but the discovery and pursuit of what we personally find meaningful.
At the time of Frankl’s death in 1997, Man’s Search for Meaning had sold more than 10 million copies in twenty-four languages. A 1991 reader survey for the Library of Congress that asked readers to name a “book that made a difference in your life” found Man’s Search for Meaning among the ten most influential books in America.
