A renowned psychologist and expert on human behavior presents Emotional Agility—a proven approach to unhook from negative feelings and behaviors so you can lead a healthier, more fulfilling life.
Whether it’s getting ahead at work, becoming a more patient parent or partner, or losing that pesky ten pounds, we all have things we want to achieve in life. And yet, despite our good intentions, we often get tripped up by self-defeating habits and emotions. Why do some people succeed in reaching their loftiest goals while the rest stumble?
In Emotional Agility, Susan David provides the revolutionary answer to this question. Challenging the popular belief that positive thinking is the key to fulfillment, she explains that negative thoughts and feelings are normal. Negativity doesn’t derail emotionally agile people. Instead, they know how to unhook from, accept, and harness these experiences so they can focus on what really matters.
Drawing on more than twenty years of research and the latest insights from behavioral science, David shows that being emotionally agile is not about suppressing negative emotions or fixing “bad” behavior; instead, it’s about facing our inner selves with courage and compassion, identifying and acting on our values, and remaining curious and engaged with the world around us. Written with wit and empathy, Emotional Agility is a groundbreaking guide that proves we don’t need to be perfect to reach our full potential. Download and start listening now!
