Shopping is a raging phenomenon among developed countries and has been studied over and over. Sociologists say it´s a female drive in an attempt to explain the differences in shopping behavior between men and women. It was said that the same obsession of men over sports can be linked to the way women go crazy on Black Friday sales or on mall openings. In the evolution of man, the male species are known to be hunters while women have always been the gatherers or the ones who are in charge of finding things for their offspring. It is quite a reductionist perspective and is still widely debated, but one thing´s for sure: shopping will keep women enchanted for years to come. This behavior is not exactly exclusive to women though, because when you consider the purchase of gadgets, large screen TV, and high-end cars, the tendency of men to make expensive purchases is surely noticeable. However, this is limited to a targeted section of the market. Women, on the other hand, will shop whenever, wherever, and whatever! This is because men consider shopping as merely a purchase of specific merchandise, while for women, it´s a whole different world altogether. It´s hard to not love shopping. The glitz, glamour, scents of a newly minted shopping mall, the vibrant colors, the excitement, the friends you meet along the way, the giddy feeling of being able to all the fabulous things that money can buy - all of these are hard to resist! But when does shopping stop being a charm and starts haunting you like a curse? Where do you draw the line between recreation and obsession? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Millian Quinteros.

Everyone wants to live a life full of meaning, purpose, and success. Yet, you clutter your mind with limiting thoughts of can´t do this, can´t do that, it´s too high, too far, too great to achieve. Divided into two sections, "Subliminal Affirmations" and "Laws of Attraction Guide"; this audiobook will show that your subconscious is the most powerful tool to help alter your life in a positive manner. Negative thoughts are like weeds that grow all the time without any nurturing, since it´s human nature to think of negative consequences. On the other hand, positive thoughts about health, love, wealth, success are hard to come by, and like everything worth fighting for in this life, they require a lot of nurture and care. The audiobook plans to give you exactly what you need: the means to stay positive through constant affirmations designed to help improve oneself, change bad behaviour, or channel the universe to attract good things in your life. Call it meditation or even self-hypnosis, but the principles stated in the audiobook actually work. It is proven that repetitive constructive affirmations attract positive energies in your life, and that desire is the first step towards achievement. Packed with subliminal affirmations, the audiobook shows that in order to attract opportunities that will improve your health, love life, or even wealth, all you need are few minutes a day to shift your mind through positive affirmations. You can choose to repeat them loud and proud, or they can be repeated in your mind during idle times such as while commuting or even while taking a shower. Think positive, be confident and change your life now by taking action and downloading this audiobook. Don´t be a pessimist and navigate away. You can´t achieve any success if your mindset is constantly plagued by negativity. Download this audiobook and improve your life! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Susan Smith.
