Dr. Judith Orloff Blows Apart Old Stereotypes: Sex, Power, Beauty, Money and Greed

By SOP newswire2

Renowned UCLA Psychiatrist and NY Times Bestselling Author Dr. Judith Orloff  blows apart old stereotypes  about Sex, Power, Beauty, Money and Greed!

In her new book, The Ecstasy of Surrender: 12 Surprising Ways Letting Go Can Empower Your Life (April 1st from Random House),  Dr. Orloff show how SURRENDER is the secret element to success (it doesn`t mean defeat)--the complete opposite of what we`ve been taught.  SHE IS IN CHICAGO APRIL 7 & 8 

Here`s how SURRENDER works in:

SEX: To tap your full sexual power you must surrender. Holding back, obsessing on performance, or letting your mind drift is the end of passion. Strategies include:

·      Surrender old ideas of macho sexiness and be authentic and loving

·      Surrender your overactive mind and your to-do list so you can be present in your body

·      Surrender to your own sexual charisma and pleasure

·      Surrender obsessive relationships and addiction to unavailable or toxic people (don`t stalk your ex on facebook or instagram) 

- Penelope Cruz and Ryan Gosling have a surrendered sexual charisma. They`re sexy without trying too hard.  

POWER: Acting like a big shot is not cool but humble power is. Power keeps increasing when you learn when to exert control and when to let go of the results. Pushing too hard sabotages success but flowing more with life increases power. True power means not being ruled by your Reptilian brain or testosterone and balancing worldly power with the power of the heart. 

             -Warren Buffet knows the power of love. Warren Buffet says, There is no power on earth                like unconditional love " versus.           

GREED: Surrender uncool ideas that power means being greedy. A mogul who rises to the top by hurting people is an abuser. Abundance and giving further true success whereas greed brings misery. Surrender the idea that success is equal to greed. Google`s intention statement as a start up company was Don`t be evil. "

            -  Bernie Madoff an example of destructive greed. 

BEAUTY:  Surrender  is a beauty secret. Pushing to hard, worrying, and resentments increase stress hormones and causes frown lines, pursed lips, poor posture, premature aging, and makes you fat. Surrendering and flowing with life increases endorphins (blissful neurochemicals) and makes you radiant, wrinkle free, and glowing.

              - Think: Meryl Streep as timeless beauty and Lindsey Lohan as aging prematurely. 

MONEY: You are not your bank account. Money can`t make you happy if you are not happy already. Surrender old ideas that money can fix you.  Happiness research shows that giving, meditation, positive thinking can increase your happiness set point whereas winnning the lottery cannot. Surrrender means learning what money can and can`t do (tips in book) and enjoying what you have. 

               - Oprah and Bill Gates know the power of giving.
