Save time. Save money. Save heartache. This one-stop shop for self-improvement combines the art and science of over thirty years of Dr. Tina Thomas’ experience as a gestalt therapist to give you the tools to the “fire” of your personal problems rather than dealing with all the psychoanalytical “smoke.”

Issues with work, goal achievement, anxiety, stress, depression, relationships?The Ultimate Edgegives you an edge in life by explaining how your brain creates your mental maps that initially protect you but ultimately can sabotage your life. You will learn how to change those mental maps so that, as far as your brain is concerned, you have an alternate past, which by default creates an alternate present and future, filled with liberating possibilities. Additionally, you will learn about the seven most misunderstood emotions and how to utilize them to your advantage. Finally, you will learn how to get your RAS in gear. The reticular activating system is a filter in the brain that, once activated, helps you to achieve your goals quickly and dynamically. More than an owner’s manual for your brain,The Ultimate Edgeis a guidebook to more peace, passion, and power than you ever imagined!

Read from the Book

I know many athletes and people in all walks of life who reach an invisible ceiling of success. Try as they might to drive through these invisible barriers, not until they take a gentle, more compassionate route are they able to allow themselves to be drawn to their goals and rise above the limitations they struggled against for so long. Take the group of world-class runners who, during their practice runs, were asked to run at nine-tenths of their usual effort. They did so and in the process set new personal best times. The runners were incredulous! They could not believe they had beaten their best times with less effort. Certain that a timing error had occurred, the runners asked to repeat the trials. Sure enough, with less effort, they experienced better results!

Editorial Reviews

Dr. Tina Thomas’ book, The Ultimate Edge, is a book that transcends advice and self-help books. It is a part of the realm of books that can genuinely assist the reader to do more than lose weight or dress better. It provides a roadmap to greater stability in life and provides readers with something that can aid them in accomplishing larger, life- changing goals. The Ultimate Edge is clear and direct to the point in its writing. Not only does Dr. Thomas manage to tackle complex subjects (for example, the different parts of the brain) but she manages to do so in such a way that reading the work is enjoyable and understandable, even to an uninitiated reader. Who would have thought such material could be a joy to read? —Dennis Boyles, former editor of Men’s Health magazine
