‘Liminal thinking is the art of creating change by understanding, shaping, and reframing beliefs.’

Ever wondered how you ended up with the belief set that’s controlling your view of the world?  I have and, fortunately, so has Dave Gray.

Dave’s written a book about it: Liminal Thinking.

He uses six principles to explain how beliefs shape everything, and gives us nine practices we can use to do something about it.

If you want to create some change in your life, do yourself a favour and get a copy of Dave’s book.

You can get an overview of its content and Dave’s philosophy of liminal thinking at liminalthinking.com.
