Inspirational Quote Of The Day:
“Impatience can cause wise people to do foolish things. ”
― Janette Oke
Are You Always In A Hurry?
Are you always in a hurry, busy with taking action, because of your belief, that the more actions you can squeeze into your day, the faster you will arrive at your goals?
What if I told you that this is a sure-fire way to miss your goals by a mile?
Actions are great, however, actions that are done with haste, and from the experience of impatience, and a feeling of not having achieved just yet, are rarely those actions that you need to take to truly reach your goals. Thoughtful introspection, contemplation, careful planning, and tending to your mindset, combined with deliberate, and focused actions is the true path. So for a moment, relax, become present, and realize that through slowing down, you will arrive much faster, than through impatient actions.
Book Recommendation – The Answer by John Assaraf:
Title: The Answer
Author: John Assaraf and Murray Smith
Genre: Self-Help, Positive thinking, Neuroplasticity
Publication Date: Sept. 2009
Publisher: Atria Books
My Review of The Answer:
One of the principles that John Assaraf covers in his book The Answer, is that manifesting and creating the life of your dreams includes the consideration of the Law of Gestation. He concludes that everything takes time to develop and manifest. He also suggests that the Universe will work on its own time, and that pushing against this law by being impatient, the reader will keep what they are desiring away from them, rather than drawing it near.
But that is not the only powerful principle that is covered in this book.
While it seems at the surface, that The Answer is mostly directed toward those of us who want to create a business of our own (it contains sections that are specifically focus on creating a dream business), it has more than enough valid points that can be used in everyday situations, such as the neural reconditioning skill of transforming automatic negative thoughts into empowering beliefs.
Do I think that this book covers anything that has previously not been covered? No. However, the Authors are combining real world techniques with manifestation principles in a way, I have not seen it combined before. The only one who has come close to this type of book is Brendan Burchard’s High Performance Habits, and that is even more geared toward entrepeneurs than this book is.
While this book is not exactly the newest on the market, it gives you a good handle on the principles of reshaping your mind to focus on success and positive thinking, in order to make a lasting change toward the mindset that is needed to actively co-create your experience.
