The Cynical Optimists
by Brian Colbert & Owen Fitzpatrick
A FLY ON THE WALL INSIGHT INTO THE WILD AND WEIRD MINDS OF BOTH BRIAN AND OWEN!
This much awaited book is an unapologetically candid exploration of how both Brian Colbert and Owen Fitzpatrick, two highly accomplished and successful Self-Help Authors, Therapists and Master Trainers of NLP handle their everyday frustrations.
THIS IS BOTH HARD HITTING AND HUMOROUS
The notion of Cynical Optimism came from the frustration that Brian and Owen felt about what they perceive to be a lack of authenticity in the world of personal improvement. Glib anecdotes and quotes on how to be happy posted through Social Media may grab your attention and lift your spirit momentarily but they do little else.
Behavioural Change and improvement requires a lot more attention and some more depth, not as much as you might think, but a little more than what is propagated through Social Media at the moment.
"The poet Emerson Said: "Knowledge eliminates fear". NLP has given me knowledge & workable tools that have cut right through my long held fears that kept me stuck. I know longer need theory, but something that puts power back into my hands - practical, usable power. NLP gave me what my extended library of self help books never gave me, it gave me back me."
CHRISTINA O’ROURKE, Counsellor/Lecturer
"The Business Practitioner was one of the most exciting and refreshing courses I have ever attended, I feel I have pressed the reset button for the rest of my life both professionally and personally. The course has provided me with the skills and techniques which not only enhanced my communication but my interpersonal skills as well. I have never been so optimistic about life in general, long may it continue."
CAROLINE O’LEARY, Training Manager
"I've learned an awful lot from Brian Colbert and he's made my life better along the way. His skills in creating change are phenomenal. That change could be learning vital skills or overcoming past issues and feelings that drag you down. If you want to develop your skills or overcome a difficulty I'd highly recommend Brian."
