FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, April 19, 2006 -- According to international best-selling author of Optimal Thinking, Rosalene
Glickman, Ph.D., “Many people use food, drugs, alcohol, gambling and other addictions to avoid their troublesome feelings. They ignore, devalue and wallow in disturbing feelings because they don’t know how to deal with them, or how to meet their needs.” Glickman believes that emotional mastery can easily be learned and implemented in schools, at home, and in the workplace.
So where does Optimal Thinking fit in? Optimal Thinking, the language of our best self, enables us to focus on what is most important, make the most of our feelings, and best meet our needs. We are all Optimal Thinkers, but most people use this peak form of thinking sporadically. Glickman has pioneered numerous educational resources to enable everyone -- from working moms to the corporate CEO -- to use Optimal Thinking consistently to maximize their personal and professional success. “When we employ Optimal Thinking, we optimize situations proactively, and make the most of the hands we are dealt.” she says.
Her latest at-your-fingertips optimization tool is a set of fourteen double-sided Optimal Thinking Emotional Mastery Wallet Cards that contain roadmaps to understand and resolve manageable and unmanageable feelings such as anxiety, hurt, anger, disappointment, envy, guilt, loneliness and depression. Glickman believes “Emotions are invaluable allies that serve as our inner compass. Disturbing emotions are optimization signals. They alert us that our thinking or actions may not be in our best interest. When you access the cards and answer the Optimal questions, you immediately gain understanding, explore your options and determine your best solution. You align yourself with your greatest needs, and exercise emotional self-reliance by processing your feelings as they occur. Isn’t this what emotional intelligence is really about?” she concludes.
