The Cognitive Rampage Revisited (2nd Edition) Releases Jan '17 with audiobook
I am currently finishing up the 2nd Edition of the book, “The Cognitive Rampage, a dose of authentic revelation revisited”. The 2nd Edition will included revised sections and theoretical expansion. For those that do not know, the book, 1st and 2nd editions both, are the application of Transrational Structure Behavior Theory (TSBT), an approach I founded. This is an integrative and all-inclusive psychological approach to life optimization or change based in the cognitive, behavioral, environmental and biological sciences. Not motivational fluff and word play.
Allow me to walk you through what TSBT means?
“Trans-” is a prefix occurring in loanwords from Latin (transcend) Trans-rational; on this model is used with the meanings “across,” “beyond,” “through,” “changing thoroughly,” “transverse,” in combination with elements of rational origin. “Transrational” is to move into rational thinking and self-talk. This requires cognitive restructuring. Structuralist are linked to the behavior sciences; social, environmental, interpersonal etc., whereas to combine a structured approach to each of these behavioral influences; social, environmental, interpersonal, cultivated from true personal analysis and your core beliefs for better and quicker assimilation. TSBT, combines all of these sciences into an easy to understand and apply application. The text includes a Personal Life Inventory, a Daily Core Routine Map, a Life Philosophy Reveal Worksheet and a Rational Self Analysis Map. All of these forms are in the book and are available for free download at adamlowery.com. You can apply this method on your own with no prescription or professional needed, and there are NO HARMFUL SIDE-EFFECTS. Reveal your authentic self through science, while cultivating your #CognitiveRampage in just 180 pages.
The Cognitive Rampage Revisited (2nd Edition) will become available January 2017 along with the audio book; just in time for your New Years Life Revelation, not resolution. After that, the 1st Edition will never be seen again because we all will have evolved.

"The Killing Fields, Athletes Depression" by Adam Lowery releases soon
What is Athletes Depression?
I experienced Athletes Depression for nearly a decade. After all, I am the theoretical mind behind the revelation of Athletes Depression. I believe this should be an actual diagnosis within the Diagnostic Statistic Manual of mental health disorders (the DSM). AD hosts a different etiology as compared to its main misdiagnoses (and most currently related) Bipolar, ADHD, Major Depressive Disorder and even Identity Dissociative Disorder. These are the most popular misdiagnoses related to Athletes Depression.
In short, being raised as a high performance athlete from childhood, and playing only as far as high school or college, especially professional, creates a 50-75% increase in the probability the athlete will experience severe symptomatic mental health issues. The manifestation of Athletes Depression contains a similar and unfortunate common etiology that leads to the popular misdiagnoses. Childhood athlete to adult athlete creates the individual to determine personal value by performance. A form of direct programming meant to develop a resistive consciousness and one who is less likely to ask for help. This naturally creates a cognitive dissonance toward any possibility of “perceived weakness”. In this sense I am categorizing the existing social stigma surrounding mental health. Meaning most athletes do not seek mental health help and choose to fight it on their own. Combined with the lengthy exposure to hyper vigilant environments and situations being linked to highly rewarding states, this begins to condition the body and mind to need, continue seek, and in many cases, cause the individual to consciously or unconsciously create hyper-vigilant environments and situations to return the body and mind to these rewarding states. Many times this manifests in very high risk situations, people and behavior. The bigger risk the better. A cycle begins to emerge. The hardworking, non fearing, non “weak” athlete fights for varying lengths and “wins”. It may even appear as if they are overworking, working perpetually or appear manic. Eventually the individual will “lose” for various reasons (lengthy explanation), generally based in emotional choices and reactions. This sets in a “we lost” mindset that can last weeks, months or even years. Due to value of self being taught to be measured in performance (behaviorally, cognitively and socially), depression and severe self judgement begins and can last lengthy periods of time. The vigilance to which the individual fights the depression many times begins with the first misdiagnosis of ADHD. This overtime combines with severe depressive episodes, and other symptomatic issues begin to emerge; addiction, violence and intense anger. Feelings and thoughts as far as self harm repeat. At first, second or even third assessment, overtime the criterium appears as if the Bipolar diagnosis is present. In reality the athlete is, has been and will continue to cycle this way due to “Athletes Depression”, NOT bipolar disorder and or ADHD. The manifestation and etiology of Athletes Depression has gone undetected and has indirectly caused countless misdiagnosis to spin athletes, and especially x athletes lives seemingly out of control. Leaving the individual with thoughts and feelings their mental health struggles are different than any therapist, and especially any partner, family member or boss can understand. The Athletes are left on the killing fields alone and depressed. Lost.

I help keep your life balanced outside the gym, off field & out of the ring. I help you maintain the mental game of life. Being an athlete calls for different life demands; a hectic schedule, little free time, serious physical and mental demands, we even have a different way of understanding the world, others and self. I help you balance the requirements it takes to be a champion in the sport your love and the life and ones in it that you love so much. A happy fighter is a good fighter. A focused athlete is a super athlete. With your life in balance, you are able to obtain “pure focus potential”. Not by “blocking it out”, but by maintaining your life and mental game as much as you do your physical health with mental training.
