If I were a psychologist, my specialty would definitely be Cognitive Psychology, which this quote from Steve Chandler pretty much sums up in just a few words.
CP focuses on the way we process outside information.
When we apply faulty reasoning, invalid assumptions, and misconceptions to otherwise neutral events, we end up with “cognitive distortions.”
Examples are “all-or-nothing” thinking, over-generalizations, and jumping to conclusions.
The best book I’ve found on the subject is Feeling Good: The New Mood Therapy by Dr. David D. Burns.

What do we mean by “private practitioner?”
Usually, that’s a small business owner who’s earned the distinction of having letters after their name.
Simple Secrets was founded in 2015 by award-winning direct response marketer and entrepreneur Chris Allen.
In the pre-Internet 90’s, Chris developed and sold millions of dollars worth of physical products on radio and TV, then used his same time-tested marketing skills to go 100% digital as the Internet began to mature in 2002.
For over a decade, Chris provided information and consulting services to a variety of Fortune 500 companies, including United Airlines, Saks Fifth Avenue, LexisNexis and The National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB).
Today, Chris and his team enjoy helping a select group of private practice professionals through his profit and growth consultancy, Simple Secrets, LLC.
