Why do some people thrive while others merely survive? It seems that the answer lies not in the circumstances that we each experience, but rather, in our individual brains.

The human brain may have evolved over millions of years, but it still uses the same basic survival mechanisms as it did when our earliest ancestors walked the planet. In this modern world, these default threat responses, which were originally designed to protect us, are more likely to sabotage us and hold us back from experiencing all that life has to offer.

Wired for Life explains why we think, decide and act the way we do. It explores the five fears commonly triggered by our brains' threat response - fear of failure, fear of losing control, fear of standing out, fear of missing out, and fear of facing the truth - and how these fears creep undetected into so many parts of our lives, impairing our ability to experience happiness, freedom, success and fulfilment.

Drawing on their experience with corporate and private clients, the authors reveal a three-step process for harnessing the power of your mind, overcoming fears, and creating the life you want. It shows you how to Wake Up, Think Differently, and Grow, changing your life in often surprising ways.

This book will help you understand your brain, providing insight into why you behave the way you do, make the choices you make and get the results that you do. Once you understand this, you will realise that changing your mind can actually change your life!
