WINDSOR, Ontario (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Plagued by a life ruled by the stress of a birth-defect, surviving abuse, alcoholism, and unemployment, author Richard Murphy dug deep into his source of strength, and found inspiration to carry on and overcome stress.
After years of studying, under martial art masters and native elders as well as through life’s experiences, Murphy felt driven to educate people about the strength they have within themselves. His methods can be found in his book, Change Your Stress: Restore Your Freedom to Choose. (Published by Balboa Press)
“I understand what it takes to crawl out of depression and carry on. I know what it feels like to believe that there is no way to change your life circumstances. I understand how to create the support within that is so vital when healing a wounded emotional heart,” says Murphy.
His central theme is the ability to focus on the positive, as a primary focal point, to overcome stress. By learning to regain the leadership of your mind, you can take back your power. Positive changes toward wellness require the mind to change first. By becoming more self-aware, you can regain the freedom to choose the positive.
“The same natural processes that create and support stress can be applied to heal from it,” Murphy said. “We tend to forget the strengths we possess when we need them the most.”
