I purchased this book after seeing a post from the author in one of the many Facebook groups on books. It was on sale or just inexpensive. I probably would not have bought it if I hadn’t seen the post from the author. I can’t remember it exactly but it was about how it is her first book and she had no prior experience and she is my age…something like that. I call myself a reformed “Law of Attraction” follower. For years and years – probably like 15-20 years I read everything I could in that arena. I was so on the bandwagon. One day (post menopause) it just hit me… what an awful practice trying to get everyone to think positively and saying that everything that happens to you is a result of your thoughts. It is sooo hurtful to say that to someone who has cancer or to a parent who lost a child or to anyone! It happened after I was introduced to Barbara Ehrenreich on youtube.
I have to say thought that the author Terry Guilford, did have a different way of using the law of attraction theories and put them nicely into something that seems more reasonable.
The book kept my attention until the end.
My favorite quotes:
Motivation is about pushing yourself to achieve a goal. Inspiration is when ideas come to you. Inspiration is as simple as floating downstream.
Get happy. Practice happy thoughts. Do happy things. It will have the added benefit of making you easier to be around as well, and that could change everything.
