I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? Summary

Stop not doing what you know you should do! 

You might think laziness, lack of willpower, and/or low motivation are to blame for the fact that you aren't achieving your goals. But fascinating research in the field of psychoneuroimmunology has revealed another, far more likely possibility. One with the potential to transform your life in a dramatic way. 

The typical excuses for not doing what you know you should - I'm too stressed out... I don't have the time... I don't have the energy, etc. - are, in fact, manifestations of a complex, interconnected web of psychological, chemical, and neurological factors. 

When activated, these factors can effectively paralyze you - making it virtually impossible for you to take the actions needed to create change in your life. 

In other words, even if you're highly motivated... if you've got these internal circumstances operating, you aren't going to be able to do it. 

But while the biochemistry may be complex, the solutions are actually quite simple. 

Dr. Nick Hall reveals these solutions - and the fascinating science behind them - in I Know What to Do, So Why Don't I Do It? You'll learn: 

  • An extraordinarily powerful stress-fighting tool that very few people take advantage of. 
  • An easy way to instantly regain control and stay focused in an emotional emergency. 
  • Six things to do when you think you've taken on more than you can accomplish in the time you have. 
  • The mistake almost everyone makes when they organize their to-do list. 
  • A simple exercise that can instantly tell you which side of your brain is dominant at any given time. 
  • The first-thing-in-the-morning action that will literally reset your internal clock and have a profoundly positive impact on your energy level for the rest of the day (and it is SO easy to do!).

    In Change Your Beliefs, Change Your Life, Dr. Nick Hall shows you how to recognize the impact your beliefs have on your life. The important thing is to know where any given belief comes from and understand how and why you internalized it - especially if it's a belief you want to change. You also need to recognize those beliefs you've been suppressing or ignoring - beliefs that have become habits or beliefs that are preventing you from getting the most out of your life.

    We've been told all our lives that whether you win or lose isn't important; it's how you play the game that matters. This is true in sports, business, or any other endeavor. But how you "play the game" has a lot to do with its outcome. And a good coach - one who places respect and conviction above popularity, who is firm yet open to the players' individual needs - can inspire their team to greatness, whether it is a football team, a work group, a committee, or a family.

    What is it that keeps us from asking for what we want? So often, the things that we want in our lives elude us for one very surprising (and deceptively simple) reason. We don't ask for them. From a higher salary... to a better bargain... to a little more help around the house, there are all sorts of desires that we harbor but never achieve, when the fact is, we haven't taken the most important step of all.

    Ambition can be a powerful force for good in our lives. But only if it is legitimate. Sometimes misinterpreted and often misunderstood, ambition - true ambition - is not a selfish quality. It is not another word for ruthless; it is not something to be shunned or subdued. Legitimate ambition is an honorable trait. At its very best, our ambition serves us and other people. In fact, pursuing your ambition is one of the most selfless things you can do.

Despite any illusions, we actually have no control over anything - except ourselves and the way we react to the events of our lives. Therein lies authentic power.

Recent Gallup polls reveal that the "greatest generation" experience more calm, compassion, peace, comfort, contentment, and happiness than the rest of the population. In our society, it takes a lifetime of worldly experience to attain this understanding and bliss, but don't you wish you could attain it now? If so, then people who have gone through the full cycle of life are the best resources available.
