We all have our fair share of problems, anxieties, and insecurities. This is inevitable.

Inside this book you'll learn:

  • How to "hack" your emotions and avoid feeling anything but happy
  • The secret to avoid getting stuck in your head and "overthinking" things
  • A happiness-inducing breathing technique that works in seconds
  • How to let go of past trauma in your life that still tortures you
  • 1 weird trick to "free" yourself from the neurotic voice inside your head
  • An empowering daily morning ritual to transform your life
  • ...and much, much more

    "Worth a listen"

    This is the second piece I've read by the author. It seems to me Morenas is a part of an ever growing group of young guys like Patrick King, Greg Greenway, and others who have spun off the pick up movement. They've adopted the business/lifestyle model and elevated it to help take men (and a hand full of keen women) to the next phase of social evolution.

    In this book Morenas is on a path of self discovery and improvement. I imagine the content and writing will continue to improve as he continues to grow as a leader. The interjection of unnecessary swear words to relate to his audience and his strength on certain opinions was a bit dissuasive at times. I appreciate his analogies even if occasionally long winded. The meat of his book is quite good and, perhaps for some, a bit thought provoking as well.

    While I don't agree with all the thoughts and beliefs the author puts forward I didn't need to. He kept his personal politics at bay for the most part, which some authors severely struggle with, and there were a number of great take aways I can incorporate into my life. Some of the material acted as good reminders of many things I've let slip away and some was new and fresh. The advice being put forward is, in my opinion, solid. There are a handful of people I would love to hand this book to right now if I thought they would listen. As a young author and leader Morenas shows great potential.

    "Food for the brain"

    Great content, only suggestion would be to cut down on the swearing it could put some of your listenrrs off and is unnecessary.

    "Not impressed"
    Would you try another book from David De Las Morenas and/or David De Las Morenas?

    Not after suffering through this one.


    What could David De Las Morenas have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    TELL the story instead of READING the story that is supposedly your own words.


    What didn’t you like about David De Las Morenas’s performance?

    Quick monotone delivery. He comes across as a young, know-it-all braggart instead of someone who his trying to share lessons with his listeners.

    "inspiring book"

    It's definitely a great book! It contains interesting anecdotes and good advice. I really enjoyed it and love all the tips to relax and live a happy life. Listening to the narrator was like getting good advice from a wise friend. I will be putting that advice into action! Loved it!

    Story
    "Great read, quick and informative."

    I have not has the easiest life dealing with divorce countless medical issues and much more intense problems that occur naturally every few weeks. my lady reccomended I read something that would allow me to deal with stress better and cope with my every day issues. now I'm not stupid but I have a hard time not listening to the voice in my head causing decisions that may have been avoided all together or even better yet could have created a positive outcome of I would merely have listened to my reasoning and not the other guy.

    You made me feel slightly crazy but in a good way. I took a moment to yell I love myself as loud as I could but strangely enough the family next to me at the red light didn't share the enthusiasm and rolled up their windows. Haha good times.

    Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

    sincerely,

    "Never needed something so essential to being alive"

    Thank you David. your book has saved me. learning to stay open has changed me for the better. I understand now how the ancient wisdom remained outside of me. I feel this deep Joy and a deeper radiance emanating inside me. staying open with the heart chakra Never Felt So Good. much to do much to learn. so now I know that confidence is nothing more and nothing less than learning to stay open and drinking from the well of bliss.

    "fantastic book"

    excellent book with great Insights I have listened to it several times the fact that it is David himself narrating the book gives it a more intimate authentic feel. the examples given in the book have helped me to put the strategies into practice in my own life and start to conquer everyday stresses and worries which has been invaluable in living a more relaxed stress free life. many thanks to the author I look forward to his future work.
