Ep 010: David Essel Shatters the Myth of the Power of Positive Thinking and Reveals the True Secret to Success

Listen to “Ep 010: David Essel Shatters the Myth of the Power of Positive Thinking and Reveals the True Secret to Success” on Spreaker.

Maybe you’ve heard how the power of positive thinking can help make all your dreams come true. Kind of like in the movie “The Secret,” right?

Well, on today’s episode it’s my pleasure to talk with David Essel about how that’s not exactly true.

In his newest book ‘Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life But This Book Will’ David combines his 30 years of work in the field of personal growth along with stories from some of the top authors and success experts of our day, to shatter “the myth of the power of positive thinking.”

David reveals that the real “Secret to success” requires much more than positive thinking, affirmations or vision boards, and that no one ever made a milion dollars, got the perfect body or found their soulmate through positive thinking alone.

David is a Master Life Coach and Teacher, Business, Relationship and Recovery Coach, International Speaker and Radio Host, and author of nine books.

In this fascinating interview, David discusses how living in true joy is the only real way to find sobriety.

We also take a deep look at how simply thinking your way into what you want, whether it’s sobriety or the perfect relationship, will not work, it requires action, action that will take you out of your comfort zone.

It is easy to see why David Essel has Motivational Speaker in his job title. Once you hear is voice, you will be instantly amped up and captivated.

Join us as we cover the alcoholism gene, emotion, forgiveness, the conscious and subconscious mind….and more.
