Make no mistakes about it, all of us started our lives by dreaming big. We had high ambitions, we dreamt big and hoped big. But sooner than later the 'reality' gave us a wake-up call and the world around made us shrink our dreams and thoughts. Few of us, if ever, arrived at our last day with all our dreams fulfilled and all our hopes intact. Life shakes us all up and shatters our dreams. But some of us march on, tough as nails in the face of struggles. What separates such victors from the vanquished is their thought process. When Life throws you a challenge, one can simply wilt down and wither away or one can simply toughen oneself up and tear apart the challenges. And, one's self-belief plays the most crucial role in how one overcomes the challenges.
In this book, Dr.David Schwartz elaborates on the ageless principle of 'you become what you think'. What is so refreshing about this book is the very practical approach to the problems and the offering of subtle solutions. This book does not ask you to write some self-assuring line for 100 times daily. This book does not ask you to stare at yourself in a mirror - except on one rare occasion - and repeat some 'magical phrase' so many times to encourage yourself. All this book asks you is to think and to think BIG.
One of the most interesting aspects of this book is, this is quite comprehensive. Whether you are suffering from self-imposed inferiority complex or you have been told by people that you’re incapable of doing something, whether you’re suffering a setback in your venture or you’ve not even started yet due to fear, this book will add a dash of confidence to your thoughts and deeds. It all flows in simple, plain language, as if a friend is sitting across the table, speaking with you about your troubles and help stimulate your thought process, through which you get to correct your thought process and solve your troubles on your own. There is no peppering of quotes from ancient philosophers and certainly no repetition of platitudes as many popular modern-day authors wont to do.
If you would want to read only one book of the personal development genre ever, choose this one. For, this is such a beautiful, brilliant and worthwhile stuff!
This is the only strong asset that God has given to us is to ability to think then why don't we use it for positive thinking. I agree that other's work is important and I am not jealous about it.
But my work is much more important and unique than others. Why can't we think like this.
Then he talk about the fear: action cures fear. Indecision, postponement, on the other hand, fertilize fear.
Then he takes us through: manage our environment and go first class in this he says " Environment shapes us, makes us think the way we do. " And Go first class: that is an excellent rule to follow in everything we do, including the goods and services that we buy. This may cost us more but gives very high value in long term.
This is an incredible book with full of life lessons on how to think BIG. Do not think twice, go ahead and read this book because the value that this book will give is trillion times of the book price.
I have benefited immensely in a very short time. As the author himself says, this book should be treated as a self-administered training program or a course in self-improvement. Merely sitting on a couch and reading it is useless. You need to study the principles carefully, and start putting them into action. Do it, and you won't regret it. Good luck !
