Psychological Triggers

Understand, avoid, and defeat the subconscious causes of your irrational and self-defeating behaviors. It’s only human nature.

A psychological trigger is something that causes us to act out of urgency — not correctness or even happiness. It’s a switch that is flipped outside of our consciousness. This is fertile ground for some of the worst decisions of our lives.

Seize control and of your impulses and make better decisions.

Psychological Triggers is an introduction to yourself — your impulses, your desires, and everything in your subconscious that drives you to action. It answers the question, “Why did I just make a terrible choice when I know I shouldn’t have?”
We are all slaves to our triggers, and this book seeks to identify them to better battle them. We might think we are making our decisions independently and out of free will, but you’ll discover that to be far from reality.

Master your psychology, master your life.

    More often than we’d like to admit, we act against our own interests. Just looking at your current day or week, how many times have you chosen to engage in something at your own expense, knowing that it’s not what you should be doing

    Even though psychological triggers come from the brain, they actually serve to bypass active thought. They force us to make decisions from a reactionary, emotional standpoint, away from the logic and reasoning the brain supposedly supports
