The Ant and the Elephant - Audio Book
Reading to you as if he were in your living room, along with his trademark wit and wisdom, Poscente shows you how to focus on and redirect the subconscious mind in order to accomplish the goals we consciously strive to achieve. This empowering story illustrates that understanding the dynamic relationship between conscious and subconscious thought is the first step toward transforming performance and outcomes in life. But harnessing the power of the subconscious is an experience commonly fraught with frustration. Even the most competent amongst us battles the subconscious fears, habits and attitudes that obstruct an authentic, fluid life. In fact, adjusting our own patterns of behavior as a means to motivate others is not unlike an ant trying to convince an elephant to change his ways.
Meet Adir the ant and Elgo the elephant. Like two teammates who must work together to realize a common goal, Adir (our overly conscious hero) and Elgo (Adir's stubborn and instinctual subconscious partner) must work as a single creature in order to reach the Oasis, their vision of paradise in the African savannah.
Their simple story is a powerful metaphor designed to bring out your best performance as a leader, so that you can do the same for those around you. Already a classic parable, The Ant and the Elephant is a must for those seek to transform their lives by reaching their full potential.
