📒I Don T Like You ✍ James Bard

Based on the old Stoic premise that “men are not disturbed by things but by the views they take of things,” this book focuses on several of the more common false beliefs (views) that lead to emotional anguish of one kind or another unnecessarily. For example, if you think there is something wrong with asparagus because I don’t happen to like it, you may also believe something is wrong with you if I don’t happen to like you. And you will feel lousy about yourself. There follows a set of guidelines for uncovering errant ideas and faulty thinking and how to get rid of the unhappiness they cause. In short, this is a book about the benefits of rational thinking.

📒Issues In The Psychology Of Motivation ✍ Paula R. Zelick
📝Issues in the Psychology of Motivation Book Synopsis : In psychology, motivation refers to the initiation, direction, intensity and persistence of behaviour. Motivation is a temporal and dynamic state that should not be confused with personality or emotion. Motivation is having the desire and willingness to do something. A motivated person can be reaching for a long-term goal such as becoming a professional writer or a more short-term goal like learning how to spell a particular word. Personality invariably refers to more or less permanent characteristics of an individual's state of being (eg: shy, extrovert, conscientious). As opposed to motivation, emotion refers to temporal states that do not immediately link to behaviour (eg: anger, grief, happiness). This book gathers new and important research in the field.
