Never come second place again
Say goodbye to feelings of inadequacy – never again will you have to look on while someone else gets that promotion you wanted, wins the pitch you went for or beats you on the playing field. Bid farewell to that sense of jealously when someone else comes out on top, or that frustration when someone argues your socks off and leaves you defeated. Now you can be the winner.
Psychologist and bestselling author Dr Rob Yeung will show you how to triumph when it really counts. How to gain the competitive advantage and come first more often. How to win arguments, negotiations, pitches, job interviews and more. Based on the latest research and proven psychological principles, Rob explains the science behind winning and how you can apply them to all facets of your life.
If you’re not winning, you’re losing. Don’t be a loser. Learn to win.
