Humans go to great lengths to avoid pain and feel pleasure. The fear of pain is the strongest emotion. Anyone who learns to use this instinctive reaction to his or her advantage will have a tool for taking control over one’s life. When life is structured in such a way that our happiness depends on something we cannot control – the pain will always be present. This is a +500-page book by the self-help guru Tony Robbins written in 1991.
