A Powerful 5-Step Process That Can Immediately Bring You More Peace
Do you want to stop living with stress, shame, social anxiety, depression, loneliness, anger, or sadness? It certainly seems as though these emotions are inevitable, and directly created by our circumstances. However, it is possible to discover that all your unwanted emotions are actually created by thoughts – and each of these emotions can vanish in an instant if you just stop believing the thoughts that create them.
When You Don't Believe Words, Those Words Don't Create Emotions
If a random person tells you, "The world is going to end tomorrow", and you believe them, what would you feel? Fear. But if you didn't believe them at all, then how would their comment make you feel? You almost certainly wouldn't feel afraid. This demonstrates that when you believe someone's words to be true, those words create emotions. But if you don't believe someone's words, those same words don't have the power to create emotions.
The same is true of the words (thoughts) in your mind. If you believe a negative thought about yourself or your life, that thought will create an unwanted emotion. However, if you don't believe that thought, it quite simply won't create the unwanted emotion.
The Impact Of Disbelieving The Thoughts That Create Your Emotions
When you disbelieve a thought that is creating one of your unwanted emotions, that emotion will instantly dissolve. As you disbelieve more of the thoughts that create your suffering, you will be happier in more situations, and the more you will be living in the moment.
This Book Will Help You To:
This book is NOT esoteric new-age nonsense (like many other books in this genre). The author’s views on life and coping strategies are excellent. He’s promoting what amounts to insightful logical thinking. It’s fairly straightforward to implement and understand. And it's effective.
If you accept the book’s premises and you should soon be able to deflate your fears and worries and relax. The book helps you see your anxieties from a new, more realistic perspective. Making this a daily habit takes a bit more effort on your part, of course.
Noah Elkrief has a noticeable New York accent. Maybe that’s why someone else narrates. I think that’s a shame though because, as you can see from his online videos, his enthusiasm and sincerity come through. The narrator is good, but I found myself missing the author’s energy.
Note is this book is a **workbook**. To get the most from it, you’ll want to write down your answers to its questions. I couldn’t do that while driving, but still found it helpful to listen and get introduced to the ideas presented. Later, I sat down to answer questions and I understood why I was answering them.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who would like to be less worried, less angry, less stressed, and more relaxed (i.e, everyone).

Although I have the Kindle edition of 'A Guide to the Present Moment', I wanted to have this version for the moments when reading wasn't feasible. The narrator has a calming voice, and it compliments the words beautifully. Thank you once again, Noah, you rock. Stay present. Peace.

The narration was awful. I was very disappointed. I couldn't even force myself to listen for an hour.
