Breaking Bad Habits
Few things in life are more difficult than kicking bad habits and developing new positive ones. These bad habits can lead to underachievement, decreased sense of self-worth and unhappiness. In contrast, good habits can create a kind of auto-pilot, leading to greater accomplishment, better relationships and greater happiness.
“The tips in this easy to read and absorb e-book for beating bad habits are fantastic. I am a fairly healthy person however there are some habits I have physically and mentally that I know slow me down from achieving an even higher level of health and success. I enjoyed how Ray breaks down the material into bite size, digestible bites. It helped me to understand how habits are formed, how the brain is wired to repeat habits until you can essentially “cut” the charge that leads to the impulse, he provides excellent, doable tips on how to retrain your brain for a different, better conditioned response and methods to get the new habits to stick for good. I would absolutely recommend this book as a quick and valuable tool for positive change.” — Live Well Medical Clinics

“This is an excellent novel. Thriller readers will love it. The reader will be involved from start to finish, it feels very plausible, and the author knows what he is talking about, having actually been born in a World War II concentration camp in Hong Kong. This gets two thumbs up.” — Paul Lappen, Vine Voice
