Are you flinching too much?

Dont.

But first read this.

The Flinch

Julien Smith is a new york times best selling author and speaker. This book is about how we as babies grow up learning to flinch to avoid pain and how this natural knee jerk reaction has unintentionally overtaken our lives to the extent that we imprison ourselves in it, unable to experience the after-joy by confronting the initial fear.

Its a short read. Its compelling. It will stick in your brain well after you have finished reading it. You will remember the flinch next time you are pushed to the edge of your comfort zone. You will relax and slowly learn how not to flinch. You will become an improved person.

Read it again.

Here’s whay amazon says –

The idea is simple: your flinch mechanism can save your life. It shortcircuits the conscious mind and allows you to pull back and avoid danger faster than you can even imagine it’s there.

But what if danger is exactly what you need?

What if facing the flinch is the one best way to get what you want?

Here’s a chance to read the book everyone will be talking about, before they do.

What are you afraid of?
