I’m going to give you access to the most advanced technology on the planet and once you learn to use it,
it will change your life.
What is this technology?
-Is it 3D Printing?
-Is it some new wearable tech?
-Is it a new level in artificial intelligence?
It’s none of these.
It’s a very specific kind of tech.
I’ll give you a hint…
No, it’s not
-a stem cell treatment
-petroleum products grown from bacteria
-vertically farmed food
-in vitro meat
There’s something far more advanced than all of these technologies.
And it’s closer than you think.
Go to your bathroom.
Look in the mirror.
There it is.
You are the bleeding edge of the technology.
Is that how you feel?
Do you feel like you are the most astonishing solution from 4.6 billion years of evolution
(or the last thing God created)?
Do you feel as amazing as you are?
Many of us don’t.
After all, It’s not easy to be a human.
Why? Why is it so hard?
It’s easy to survive.
If you’re hungry, you eat (if you’re fortunate to have access to food).
If you’re thirsty, you drink.
If you’re tired, you rest.
But thriving…oh thriving…
having an amazing, meaningful life is a different story.
Why aren’t more of us successful?
Why aren’t more of us happy?
How can we have access to the most powerful technology on the planet and not use it any better?
We don’t understand the technology. After all,
We didn’t come with an owner’s manual…or did we?
What if those same mechanisms (that tell us if we’re hungry, that tell us if we’re thirsty, that tell us how we need to move) are telling us how to live?
Your body is desperately trying to communicate with you.
You’re getting its feedback, the biofeed-back from your body,
but you’re not finding the way forward
You’re ignoring the signals:
your emotions, your thoughts,
so you’re not taking the right action.
You’re body is leading you but your mind isn’t following
You’re following this person, this belief system, this idea, but
you’re not following you.
Using your body, feeling better, doing better, and
thinking better is far simpler than you ever imagined.
Haven’t you always known
“It’s got to be simpler than this?”
It will be when you learn about:

If you don’t have the life you want. If you don’t feel how you want to feel, do what you know you could do, or think as well as you could think, then maybe you need to take a look at your “owner’s manual.”
Who knew “The Owner’s Manual” was so inexpensive?
PS (When I taught my first Psychology course, I was disheartened to learn how many smart people had never read a book on Psychology. I vowed then that I would write something to try and remedy this situation. This text is short and it’s for smart people but more importantly, it’s for the doers…not just the thinkers. If you’re a smart doer, once you read The Owner’s Manual, you’re going to be an even smarter doer…that feels a lot better. Can’t wait to hear about your results!)
