If you are looking for an operating manual for the human mind—this book is it.

Paula Tolliver, CIO Intel Corporation

 

The understanding outlined in this book sheds light on the human dimension, revealing how the mind actually works. Although simple in its foundation, this understanding can significantly change you – from the inside→out.

About Invisible Power

Have you ever wondered why your miraculous and brilliantly designed human mind fails to live up to its potential?

The authors take you behind the scenes to uncover three simple principles they call insight principles that explain how the mind works. These principles are not new principles to learn and live by. They are guides to the power of resources living inside you. You will not find techniques, advice, or anything to do in this book. How refreshing!

It wasn’t until the principles of aeronautics were understood that we could finally fly. Humanity did not invent aeronautical principles anymore than we invented gravity. These principles were at work invisibly predicting the outcome of our early failed attempts to fly. Invisible Power reveals the inner mechanisms responsible for your moment-to-moment feelings and experience of life – mechanisms responsible for the very reality you perceive. Once you understand how your mind works, you can better utilize its brilliance. You can, metaphorically, begin to fly.

After they lay out the core understanding, the authors Ken Manning, Robin Charbit, and Sandra Krot turn their attention to the understanding’s astounding implications and relevance in business. Bolstered by decades of experience as business leaders, entrepreneurs, and relationship experts, they paint a surprisingly practical and hopeful picture, illustrating it with dozens of relatable client stories. Not only will you see how to have a more enjoyable, innovative, and productive work life, you will unleash the potential you have always had as a human being. You will be ready to create your next level of success.
