(114 pages) False perceptions of reality, most of them buried in the subconscious mind, constitute life’s greatest obstacle to success and happiness. Instilled in us by childhood experiences, these faulty assumptions reach from the past to paralyze potential, prevent change, and wreak havoc in relationships.
