Discover the Ten-Second Actions That CanTransform Your Relationships Forever

How often have we in one single instant taken a step backwards in a relationship simply by saying the wrong thing? We cringe because all of us remember the precise moments when we unintentionally made a bad first impression, distanced ourselves from someone we care about, or even betrayed someone we love with painful words.

Fortunately, bestselling author Gay Hendricks shows us that we have the power to turn these negative moments into Ten-Second Miracles that will transform and enrich our relationships. The Ten Second Miracle prepares us so that we will never be caught off guard again, consequently allowing us to take positive control over our relationship destinies.

By learning simple, yet life-changing actions, you will know how to handle the most important moments of your relationship life:

  • How to begin relationships in the first ten seconds of meeting someone.
  • How to restore harmony any time you feel unspoken tension in the air.
  • How to make a decision when you don't know whether to leave or stay in a relationship.
  • How to get a solid commitment.
  • How to know what to say in situations where you need to speak a difficult truth.

Hendricks will help you recognize the exact moments when Ten-Second Miracles can be created and he will help you discover how to say the words and take the actions that restore harmony to your family, your marriage, and your work.

"Gay Hendricks has been enormously effective in my understanding of human emotion and intimacy."
-John Bradshaw, author of Homecoming and Healing the Shame That Binds You

About the Author:

Gay Hendricks is a psychotherapist and the author and coauthor of more than twenty books dealing with personal growth, relationships, body-centered therapy, and corporate transformation. He has taught at both Stanford and the University of Colorado and, with his wife, has led workshops and seminars all over the world as codirector of the Hendricks Institute in Santa Barbara, California.

From Publishers Weekly:

Beginning with the question, "Does any great change in our lives ever take longer than ten seconds?" Hendricks (Conscious Loving) spends much of the rest of this relationship manual attempting to prove his negative answer. He describes five-step "Miracle Moves" to create a "mind-body shift" that he guarantees will dissolve conflict. Fully feeling and speaking the emotions people often suppress is the basis of his method, and the simple exercise Hendricks advocates seems a useful tool for momentarily breaking out of old patterns of behavior. Applied to the "seven biggest relationship mistakes" people make, the "Key Moves" are shown to be effective in personal examples from his "thousands" of workshop participants. Unfortunately, Hendricks has so much enthusiasm for his technique that his claims for instant major life and relationship changes stretch the boundaries of credibility. "The Ten-Second Miracles are... effortless," he says, and "[i]t doesn't matter if you have been unhappy for decades, you are still only seconds away from the miracle"Awhich, he seems to assert, can cure migraines or addictions and resolve conflicts instantaneously. In his workshops and personal therapy sessions, Hendricks may achieve the amazing results he claims, but whether readers of his book will achieve the same success is doubtful. Author tour.
