Edith Eva Eger, Ph.D., is a sought-after clinical psychologist, helping individuals discard their limitations, discover their powers of self-renewal, and achieve things they previous thought unattainable.
Using her past as a powerful analogy, she inspires people to tap their full potential and shape their very best destinies. It’s a message of healing and personal growth. A message of freedom from self-imposed limitations. A message that helps people build character, deal effectively with life’s events, and enrich the lives of others.
Dr. Eger speaks on today’s most relevant topics and tailors her presentations to the unique requirements of business, educational institutions, government, the military, healthcare, and religious, civic, and community organizations.
A native of Hungary, Edith Eva Eger was just 16 years old in 1944 when she experienced one of the worst evils the human race has ever known.
As a Jew living in Nazi-occupied Eastern Europe, she and her family were sent to Auschwitz, the heinous death camp. Her parents lost their lives there. She and her sister survived even though they were subjected to the horrible medical experiments of Dr. Josef Mengele. By 1945, when the American Army liberated the camp, Edith was near death. A young American soldier noticed her hand moving slightly amongst a number of dead bodies. He quickly summoned medical help and brought her back from the brink of death.
Edith Eva Eger, Ph.D., has appeared on numerous television programs including Oprah Winfrey and was the primary subject of a holocaust documentary that appeared on Television.
Contrary to popular belief, there are no victims in this world – only willing participants. You can’t always control your circumstances, but you can control how you respond to them. And everyone has the power to change at any time. Sampling of some survival skills for you to think about and reflect upon:
Every problem is temporary.
The quality of your decisions determines the quality of your life.
Dire conditions allow opportunities for inner growth.
Adversity is what life is all about. You have the power to use adversity to your advantage!
Blame and condemnation seldom produce positive change and almost always make things worse.
Others only have as much power over you as you let them!
The most obnoxious person in your life is often your best teacher.
Aggression and passivity are two of the least effective behaviors to effect a solution.
To find freedom we need to forgive.
Forgiving is a selfish act to free yourself from being controlled by your past.
Cooperation requires a lot less energy than competition or domination.
Every situation can be viewed from many perspectives. Is there a pattern to the way you view most situations?
Focus on seeing the world the way it could be, not the way it is.
Take responsibility for the responses you make.
Turn problems into challenges and crises into transitions!
You may walk through Valley of Death but don’t set up camp there.
To lead full lives we need to get in touch with ourselves, discard our limiting beliefs, and shed our prejudices
