The AHA! Handbook: How to spark the insights that will transform your life and career
In stock, new
Would you like to know what you can do, the actions you can take, to prime yourself for a life-changing insight–one that would transform your health, relationships, career, or spiritual life? The AHA Handbook is the first research-based self-help book that teaches readers how to spark these kinds of pivotal realizations. It counters conventional wisdom, which holds that momentous, life-altering AHA s are rare events outside a person’s control. Donna Hartney, Ph.D., analyzed 99 published, first-hand accounts of transformational insights. For example, she analyzed how Nelson Mandela, Sandra Oh, Tracy Chevalier, and Norman Vincent Peale experienced powerful AHA s that defined their careers. She analyzed how Nora Ephron, Emily Proctor, Blair Underwood, and Shonda Rhimes, experienced pivotal epiphanies that remade their relationships. She analyzed how Queen Latifah, Josh Hamilton, Maria Shriver, and Eckhart Tolle experienced profound insights that transformed their health and well-being. The AHA Handbook presents the results of that research interwoven with inspirational, real-life stories of life-changing insights and practical advice. The book describes 21 actions readers can take to generate powerful, life-altering realizations in their lives and careers. These actions fall into three phases: prime yourself to live life in a way that attracts pivotal realizations, watch for triggers to notice and leverage life’s insight-rich moments, and capture the value to tap the transformational power of an AHA once it arrives.
