Break free from self-sabotaging survival patterns and transform your life

• Discover the six keys to empowerment and take ownership of your life

• Activate the healing power of your subconscious mind to accelerate change and growth and eliminate the root causes of chronic anxiety, depression, and other limiting mental and emotional challenges

• Learn effective brain-rewiring methods and practical tools based on neuro-linguistic programming and clinical hypnotherapy

When you’re struggling with anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem, just keeping your emotions in check seems like a full-time job. Yet, what may hold you back in life even more are your survival patterns. Have you ever wondered why you make yourself invisible, procrastinate, or please others to get their approval? Our subconscious employs survival patterns like these to protect us from rejection, failure, and hurt. However, living in subconscious “survival mode” has significant downsides: when we live “just to survive,” we become disconnected from our true selves and our innate ability to live an empowered life of purpose, fulfillment, and self-reliant confidence.

In this step-by-step guide, Friedemann Schaub, M.D., Ph.D., explores how to break free from the six most common survival patterns—the victim, invisibility, the procrastinator, the chameleon, the helper, and the lover—by engaging the part of the mind that created them in the first place: the subconscious. Providing research-backed insights and brain- rewiring methods based on his 20 years’ experience, Dr. Friedemann details how, through activating the healing power of the subconscious, you can throw off the shackles of these self-sabotaging patterns and “flip” them into the six keys to self-empowerment, allowing you to take self-reliant ownership of your life. Revealing how to work with the subconscious mind and become the leader of your life, the author details how to free yourself from living in survival mode, learn to love and accept yourself, and make authenticity and confidence your everyday way of being.

The Empowerment Solution is such an insightful book. A light went off inside when I learned about anxiety being an inner compass that alerts us when we’re off our path. It makes perfect sense. I also found the chapter “Self-Compassion: The Key to Owning Your Hidden Gifts” very moving and profound. It truly helped me connect to the scared little boy in me. I lost my dad to cancer and that loss would’ve been much, much harder for me had I not connected those fears into strengths. Dr. Friedemann and this book helped me do that.”

— Nancy Colier, author of The Emotionally Exhausted Woman and Can’t Stop Thinking
