Publisher's Summary

Ever feel like you are constantly angry? You aren’t alone. Millions of people have anger management problems.

The world is getting increasingly complex and full of distractions due to technology, careers, education finances, etc.!

Uncontrolled anger does have the ability to rob you of opportunities and ruin friendships. There are ways to control and eliminate the negative side of anger, starting right now.

I personally suffered from angry outbursts in my 20s when my career and finances took a turn for the worse, and the anger outbursts simply made it even worse. I constantly compared myself to others in my age group who were more successful than I was, and it drove me crazy, silently of course, until someone, or something, set off the trigger, then I lost all control, saying and doing things that caused real lasting damage to friends and situations. When I was done, I could not believe I acted so irrationally.

The damage my uncontrolled anger had done was long-lasting many times over for years. It did take a while to get control. It all started with baby steps and self-affirmations to avoid the triggers or walk away. 

Sounds simple, right? 

Take an event in your past where you had uncontrolled anger - road rage, co-worker rage, domestic rage, whatever - and try to observe yourself from an outside perspective, like a bystander watching you. How do you feel? Your answer will reveal a lot about your deep inner psychology.

You will learn steps to control and eliminate anger, even though anger is not always a negative emotion but is a necessary part of our lives. 

Negativity comes in when we lose control. 

When it emerges without boundaries, the fiery emotion burns through us like hot coals until it consumes us and everything around us, destroying lives, relationships, and careers with the speed of a literal forest fire. 

Getting control of this emotion requires some deep inner searching. You need to understand what anger really is and how to deal with it. This book has been designed to give you fundamental principles we all experience when we are dealing with anger and teaches you basic techniques that can help you to reign it in without causing harm to yourself and others. We will discuss:

  • What anger really is
  • What happens when anger is not controlled
  • How to find your anger triggers
  • How your thoughts and your behavior are connected
  • Strategies to deal with anger
  • How to be proactive rather than reactive
  • Relaxation techniques
  • Peaceful conflict resolutions

If you’re tired of anger getting to control your life, this book will help you to reclaim your life and get back to a more positive way of interacting with the world around you. It’s time for you to make a change now by taking the first step.

Very easy to understand

Very easy to understand, wonderful insight on ways to work on anger issues. . . . Was worried the forced introspection would irritate me, but actually enjoyed exploring and accepting anger.

Anger control is important

This book doesn't just go over tips to manage your anger but also empathizes with those who are boiling up inside, showing that it can come from a lot of frustrating situations that contribute to someone's mood. It's a very interesting book that way.

Great for finding peace

I was trying to find some inner peace and comfort by listening to this book. It's a book that doesn't sound condemning or judgmental, but instead, it empathizes with the listener and shows how to overcome anger issues.

Amazing book

It's interesting how much valuable advice you can pack into a barely 1-hour book, but it's true.

Anger Management

The author of this book obviously researched the topic very well. And I know there are some things that I could probably look up online, but I still liked listening to it while doing something else.
