We all experience difficulties and emotional traumas throughout our lives, whether they are concerns about health, finances, family and friends, or other more global issues. In today’s times people of all ages are challenged and unsure of their futures.
My personal inspiration has been Abraham Maslow, the father of modern psychology. I met him in the 1960s while at Brandeis University, and he became a mentor to me.
Maslow’s simple, yet revolutionary, approach to psychology makes him as relevant today, 40 years after his death. By studying the people we most admire, he identified characteristics that made them successful: among them, appreciating the moment, focusing beyond oneself, and cultivating a sense of humor.
For the past fifty years, I have thought about Abraham Maslow’s ideas every day. They have guided me through difficult times and enhanced my moments of greatest joy and transformed my life.
Seeing More Colors is illustrated by my travel photographs from seven continents, as well as stories from my work as an orthopedic consultant to the world champion Chicago Bulls basketball team and the Chicago White Sox baseball team. Every page has a story or a quotation which has had a profound influence on me. Since each chapter is a contained unit, the book can be read one chapter, or even one page, at a time.
I hope you enjoy SEEING MORE COLORS.
•Find out how the teachings of Abraham Maslow can help to transform your life.
•See how using Maslow’s ideas as a framework, Seeing More Colors demonstrates how each of us can lead a more rewarding life.
Also, as the literature of positive psychology presents that helping others increases the likelihood of leading a more satisfying life; a win-win situation. The more one gives, the more one receives.
