Your mind is a wonderful thing until it decides to be a scumbag. In fact, I'm sure most of us can think of multiple ways in which our minds sabotage our lives every day. One professor has made it his life's work to find out why and how to combat such negativity.
In the latest Authors at Google talk, "Positive Intelligence" author Shirzad Charmine shares tips on how to defeat your own brain:
Stanford Professor Shirzad Chamine is author of the New York Times bestseller Positive Intelligence. His work exposes 10 well-disguised mental saboteurs and shares how to defeat them. According to Chamine, "positive intelligence" measures the percentage of time our mind serves us as opposed to sabotaging us. While IQ and EQ (emotional intelligence) contribute to our maximum potential, it is PQ that determines how much of that potential we actually achieve. Chamine is chairman emeritus of CTI, the largest coach-training organization in the world. Chamine has coached hundreds of CEOs and their executive teams. Before running CTI, he was the CEO of an enterprise software company.
