Make Your Gifted Life Meaningful
"This book will make a smart person even smarter." ―Dr. Katharine Brooks, You Majored in What? Mapping Your Path from Chaos to Career
#1 Bestseller in Counseling & Psychology, Attention-Deficit Disorder, and Mood Disorders
Overcome your unique challenges. The challenges smart and creative people encounter―from scientific researchers and genius award winners to bestselling novelists, Broadway actors, high-powered attorneys, and academics―often include anxiety, overthinking, mania, sadness, and despair. In Why Smart, Creative and Highly Sensitive People Hurt, psychology specialist and creativity coach Dr. Eric Maisel draws on his many years of work with the best and the brightest to pinpoint these often devastating challenges and offer solutions based on the groundbreaking principles and practices of natural psychology.
Find meaningful success. Do you understand what meaning is, what it isn't, and how to create it? Do you know how to organize your day around meaning investments and meaning opportunities? Are you still searching for meaning after all these years? Many smart people struggle with reaching for or maintaining success because, after all of the work they put into attaining it, it still seems meaningless. In Why Smart, Creative and Highly Sensitive People Hurt, Dr. Maisel teaches you how to stop searching for meaning and create it for yourself.
In Why Smart, Creative and Highly Sensitive People Hurt, you will find:
- You are not alone in your struggles with living in a world that wasn't built for you or your intelligence
- Logic- and creativity-based strategies to cope with having a brain that goes into overdrive at the drop of a hat
- Questions that help you create your own personal roadmap to a calm and meaningful life
