How many times a day do we blame others for how we’re feeling? The guy that stole your parking spot, the hairstylist who butchered your haircut, the spouse who isn’t pulling their share — the list is endless. We’ve all been taught that others and outside circumstances determine how we feel. When we do this, we hand over the controls of our life. We find our self-worth and happiness at the mercy of how everyone else treats us, or what situations befall us. When you think this way, you’re viewing the world through your Addicted Mind. Grown from all the negative experiences you've encountered throughout your life, the Addicted Mind feeds off anxiety. To fuel its anxiety-driven agenda, it creates stories to convince us that our problems stem from outside sources.
Luckily, there is another way to think; one that is already lying dormant in our minds. The wise Observing Mind understands that the beliefs you have about yourself color all the interactions you have. This new mindset empowers you to overcome anxiety, addiction, marital issues, depression, and many, many more issues in your life by putting you back in the driver’s seat. J.F. Benoist, a visionary in the addiction field, lays out specific skills to guide you in healing your Addicted Mind to achieve great happiness, success, and fulfillment.
