Deep Nutrition will not only improve your diet, but help you feel energized, end your dependence on medication, and live the life you desire. This diet is about more than losing weight – it revolutionizes people's relationship with food and yields benefits including stronger joints, smoother skin, diminished allergic reactions, improved learning capacity, potential height increase, and near-elimination of heart attack and strokes. Your genes have the potential for wondrous health and beauty, and the ability to fight disease, stored deep inside. Yet they need the proper building blocks, including meat cooked on the bone and raw vegetables. Sugar and vegetable oils are some of the worst foods for your genes, destroying health.
"This book describes the diet to end all diets."
Influence is primarily about compliance – using psychology to increase the odds that someone will say yes to whatever you request. To effectively influence someone, you can make them believe you have similar personality traits as them, you can make them believe something is rare, or you can get them to say yes to a simpler request first, in order to trigger their desire to be consistent in their behavior. This book describes these techniques (as well as others) in detail, as well as valid defensive techniques to avoid being influenced.
“There are some people who know very well where the weapons of automatic influence lie and how employ them regularly and expertly to get what they want.”
This book describes the art of tooting your own horn in an effective, pleasant manner. Prepare specific “bragologues” for use in professional and social situations by asking yourself specific questions and weaving them into a narrative. While society applauds all who are humble, those who succeed often have learned the subtle art of bragging effectively. Selfpromotion is not just for performance reviews; it’s for your everyday life, if done right. Here are the methods.
“Promoting ourselves is not something we are taught to do.”
For many professionals, life is a struggle for time. Long hours, growing responsibilities due to job layoffs, and even the state of constant connectedness brought on by the smartphone boom have made it difficult to stay upbeat and not feel overwhelmed. By practicing mindfulness and focusing on the present, we can reduce stress and become happier and healthier in both our work and home lives. This book teaches you how.
“The mindfulness alternative is not about sitting with your legs crossed and your eyes closed for hours a day. It's about putting yourself in a position to be more aware and intentional about what's really going on inside and out and what, if anything, you want to do about it.”
The challenger sales model is a novel method of customer interaction. Statistical data show that “relationship builders” focus too much on customers and are less effective than “challengers”. Challengers are assertive (but not aggressive), and always aim to challenge customers’ old ways of thinking. They aim to teach customers about their novel solution, destroy the customer’s old paradigms, and provide fresh insights. It’s not about what you sell, but rather how you sell.
“The real question isn’t how to stop reps from being too assertive, but rather how to get them to be assertive enough.”
