The 12 Choice of Winners (Hard Copy)

Your Complete Personal Development Companion

Want to change your life! Here's how it's done. The 12 Choices of Winners will help you become aware of what you love, need, have passion for, and want to become. No matter what is going on in your mind, emotions, behaviour, or life in general, you will get tips for turning struggle, disharmony or feelings of failure into empowerment and success.

What will it be like for you to know exactly what you want from life and how to get there? How will you feel when you know how to listen to your own advice rather than that of others, and have the courage and confidence to follow it?

This book has changed the lives of people before even getting officially into print! And it can change yours too. When couples get into conflict, an inability of one or both partners to address personal issues is almost always behind their presenting problems. As a couples therapist, the author knows well the steps needed to address these patterns of unhelpful behaviour that individuals bring to their partnerships. Here is a guidance system for improving your relationships, career, self-confidence or rekindling your passion for life. Spiritual teachers,couples therapist, researchers and the author's clients and students have all contributed to this complete guide to personal development.

You will discover how easily you can:

  • Be yourself, fully and powerfully, not a clone of others or of dogma;
  • Take charge of your mind, rather than have it take charge of you;
  • Become less reactive and work with unhelpful unresolved issues;
  • Manage your feelings so that they support you, not get in your way;
  • Be who you were designed to be, and passionately live your true life
  • Implement strategies handed down by generations of spiritual teachers;
  • Live your life your way, doing what works for you (rather than others);
  • Be in control of your life, rather than feel controlled by life.

I have really enjoyed several dips into "The 12 Choices of Winners" - a 'self-help' book with a difference - well, several differences from most self-help books. The combination of affirmations, cartoons, text and case-studies all pulled together with Jeff's experiences as a counsellor makes for lively reading. Jeff highlights the multitude of familiar old patterns most of us follow in our thinking and feeling reactions in our daily living. These habits keep us stuck in problematic cycles. Jeff briefly explains the benefits of being more intentional in our choices for daily living. The point is that most of us can be better and do better with more consideration of our choices and by selecting optimum outcomes.

I have worked with Jeffrey Saunders - or Jeff as I know him - for over three years in the field of counsellor education and personal development. I consider Jeff to be one of the best teachers I have ever worked with. Jeff is warm and compassionate - his eyes sparkle with the knowledge of one who has travelled the path and radiates self-acceptance. Jeff speaks and writes with confidence and clarity on a vast range of topics - from what to do with unwanted emotions and early childhood trauma, to managing intimate relationships in complex family systems, and improving one's financial health.

"I realize now that I was hugely disadvantaged by not knowing how to successfully manage by mind, emotions, or tread through the mire of conflict in my close relationships. The 12 Choices of Winners has given me insight, confidence and skills which, as I apply them, are bringing change, greater happiness, and a greater sense of control to my life. In addition, any-one on the spiritual journey will find this book gives the keys for self-realization. This book has assisted me personally towards becoming a self-realized Being, and offers the first major step on the Path of Spirituality. I highly recommend Jeff's book as a tool for enlightenment."

For many years I was trained to use practical skills, logic or mathematics to solve economic and financial problems. But when I was challenged with big decisions relating to my happiness, or understanding my behaviour, emotions, love life, balance as a person, or understanding my interaction with others, none of my previous skills worked for me. The 12 Choices of Winners is a fantastic book, and gave me the insight, tools and exercises to become a happier and successful person. Every time I re-read a paragraph, or repeat an exercise, I discover something new that adds to my balance and happiness. I highly recommend this book. Thank you Jeff.

I now realize that I was hugely disadvantaged by not knowing how to manage my mind, emotions or tread through the mire of conflict in my close relationships. After reading the book not only do I feel more in control of my life but I am gaining the confidence and skills to change my life for the better. By applying these skills I know I have greater happiness, life skills, and sense of control over my life. In addition, any one on the spiritual journey will find this book provides the keys to support one's spiritual journey, and I use these on a daily basis. Reading and referring to it has proved to be a major help towards my spiritual growth. I highly recommend Jeff's book as a tool for spiritual realization.
