Review

"I Believe" is one of those special books to be experienced and contemplated not just read and the information recorded. Enjoy the journey... I did."  
Lindsay Wagner, actress, author, and advocate of human potential


“The ancient Greek philosopher Epictetus taught his students that what happens to them is not as important as what they believe
happens to them. In this engaging and provocative book, Eldon Taylor provides his readers with speci!c ways in which their beliefs can lead
to success or failure in their life undertakings. Each chapter provides nuggets of wisdom as well as road maps for guiding them toward
greater self-understanding, balance, responsibility, and compassion.”
— Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Alan Watts Professor of psychology and humanistic studies, Saybrook University, and co-author of Personal Mythology



“I Believe is an inspiring book that shows you all the bene!ts of choosing your beliefs carefully.”
— John Gray, Ph.D., New York Times best-selling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus



“A new view of mind and consciousness is arising from within science and psychology. This emerging picture honors the power of belief, meaning, and purpose, and brings with it stunning possibilities of human potential. Eldon Taylor’s I Believe is a nononsense invitation to experience this domain for yourself. This book deserves a wide readership, especially for anyone who’s interested in self-responsibility and prevention in health. In the end, it’s this vision that will turn around our nation’s faltering health care, which makes this book all the more important.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of!Reinventing Medicine! and The Power of Premonitions



“In straightforward Eldon fashion, you’ll learn how to plug into all you desire, and you’ll understand why you may have been the source of your sabotage. Whether it’s a matter of relationships or wellness, prosperity or self-satisfaction, this book will open a new vista of understanding solidly connected to scienti!c evidence. You’ll read it and re-read it, sharing its valuable content with everyone you love.”
— Peggy McColl, New York Times best-selling author of Your Destiny Switch


“Most of us live life according to the story of who we think we are. Past wounds, disappointments, poor choices, and a gnawing awareness that we are not living life to its maximum potential in a state of harmony and joy are a direct result of this self-limiting myth. In this book, Eldon Taylor encourages us to activate the inner reservoir of our untapped potential and to question our prior beliefs and patterns of behavior. Creating a ‘new’ story can liberate us to become our most authentic selves and to celebrate the miracle and adventure of life, in a world of in!nite possibilities.”
— Annamaria Hemingway, Ph.D., author of Practicing Conscious Living and Dying and Myths of the Afterlife



“For inestimable millennia, global human-race consciousness has typically tended toward embracing fear and worry as a way of life and often all but forgetting the true and only power of love, as ampli!ed by personal, conscious awareness of one’s Divine Self. Dr. Taylor’s newest book clearly demonstrates that there truly is an emerging trend to return to this Divine awareness. This is exempli!ed in his intelligent, caring language, ideas, and methods to help the reader to achieve subtle but powerful spiritual awareness to dissolve the fear while !nding personal balance in one’s life. Promoting ‘love is the great equalizer,’ his obvious appreciation of being a curious and vibrant human, immersed in a joyful, supportive universe, brings delightful buoyancy to the pages, transmitting his inescapable exuberance and positivity to the reader.”
— August Goforth, author of The Risen: Dialogues of Love, Grief & Survival



“The author deftly weaves insights, humor, questions, and personal anecdotes into a humanized worldview that’s extremely readable, entertaining, and informative. Since we all unfold our human lives out ‘into’ the beliefs we have, this book is a very useful road map for how to live both gracefully and authentically. Highly recommended.”
— Chuck Hillig, author of Enlightenment for Beginners and Seeds for the Soul

Format: Hardcover
This is one of those "easy to read little books" that has a huge impact on your thinking and in the quiet moments invades your thought-space with questions and ponderings. I say it is easy to read because the chapters are short - what I think of as "bite-sized chapters" - just enough to set your mind on a journey of discovery. It doesn't send you on a Google journey for more information but an inner journey that has you chewing on the thought and ferreting out at a deep level what you think and what you believe about what you just read.

It is simple, too, because, while the thoughts are profound it is not written with words that demand a dictionary in your left hand while you hold the book with the right. I don't mean to imply that it's "dumbed-down" because it's anything but that. I mean that anyone with good reading skills can read the book and understand what Taylor is saying. Long after the mind has feasted on the words, however, the soul will dip into its depths over and over to ponder and digest.

The chapters address topics like The Power of Belief, Integrity, Life and Pain, Love and Cruelty, Balance, Goals and Ambition, Peace - and other critical issues that each person needs to make a personal decision about. It is not a book for sissies or for those who are afraid to look within for the tough answers to serious questions.

Each chapter ends with a reflection. If the book contained nothing but the reflections it would still be worth the price you paid and the time you spent. The reflections are, as they say, "a gift that keeps on giving" because they meander into your mind off and on throughout the day and certainly at night if you happen to be awake.

Format: Hardcover
Dr. Taylor has done it yet again! Sharing his wisdom, he gently shows the reader how to challenge his belief systems and change them to meet his higher good. There is a difference between transformation (the long, laborious chore of analyzing, regurgitating, processing, and slowly reconditioning one's thinking and behavior) and transmutation (taking a good, honest look at what you've created and changing your mind about it, then moving forward anew). I believe Taylor's body of work directs his readers to truly shift focus away from that which no longer serves and create a new world within which then shows up as the symbols of one's world without. Thank you, Dr. Genius.

Format: Paperback
I Believe is the latest book from Eldon Taylor. In this book he delves more deeply into how our unexamined thoughts can determine our success (or failure) in life. It's very different from other books I've read on the topic of examining limiting beliefs.

This book is not an easy read, it makes you think. And that's just the point, by thinking and seeing all sides of an issue, Eldon shows us how important it is to examine our thoughts. Each chapter is relatively short but contains a lot of research and information. This isn't a typical self-help book. There are no tips for changing your beliefs, or affirmations to recite. Instead Eldon provides you with examples and opposing arguments for looking at different aspects of your life broken down into 26 chapters. The aspects are extensive and thorough. The end of each chapter contains a paragraph where you are invited to reflect on the topic and to examine your own thoughts on the subject. If you take some time to answer the questions honestly you may find that you may change your thinking. And that's the point.

The following is a direct quote from Eldon Taylor regarding I Believe:

"Many of us have learned to be effective chameleons, just so we can feel as though we fit in, but in the process we have neglected the discovery of ourselves. We have learned to avoid rejection and thereby limited what we might try. We are full of what I have called the "no-don't syndrome"--all those negatives that inform us we might fail, we're no good, we're not old enough, we're stupid or skinny or fat and so on. This too has become a part of our belief network, as have the various defense mechanisms that protect us from pain and rejection. Bottom line, we are often last to ourselves.

Format: Paperback
I Believe: When What You Believe Matters, by Eldon Taylor (author) is an incredible nonfiction book. It is filled with superb content on how to change your belief system, and/or dramatically improve your daily existence on our planet Earth! A 179 page nonfiction book, it is filled with outstanding tools for the reader to understand the absolute incredible power of our belief systems, how we can change them to reach our dreams! Outstanding information, I learned about the absolute infinite ability of human belief, transforming one's belief system to reach optimal results. Incredibly well-written anecdotes fill each chapter, easy-to-read, and very insightful. For example, I learned that the difference between never changing your belief and/or life and being late to change to change your life and/or beliefs, this distance is huge! We can all change our belief systems, thus expand our horizons. Page 132: "vividly imagining shooting free throws with a basketball is statistically almost as effective as practicing." Our minds can unleash unlimited success, potential -- when we change your belief, thinking. For example, "visualization can also work to attract things into people's lives" (p.132). Changing your belief system can influence everything from your DNA, blood pressure, performance, virtually all facets within your mind, body and/or soul! SUPERB CONTENT!

Sensational content! Eldon Taylor (author), is a worldwide renowned (expert) consultant within the field of psychology, hypnosis! He is an expert (world-class) coach in changing human brain belief systems ny means of his tools, or information! He taught me how to change my negative belief system(s) and/or flip that into productive, successful, and /or life-altering beliefs-actions.

He has been called a "master of the mind" and has appeared as an expert witness on both hypnosis and subliminal communication.

Eldon's Father was in law enforcement for most of his life and for many years Eldon himself was a practicing criminalist conducting investigations and lie detection examinations. His hobby for over 30 years has been horses and at one time he owned a large all-breed stallion station and racing stable. His down to earth common-sense pragmatism combined with his intellectual interests have led some to identify him as the "blue-collar progressive traditionalist." Now if that isn't ever an oxymoronic description--but then perhaps it is not after all.

Eldon is listed in more than a dozen Who's Who publications including Who's Who In Intellectuals and Who's Who In Science and Engineering. He is a Fellow in the American Psychotherapy Association and an internationally sought after speaker. His books and audio/video materials have been translated into more than a dozen languages and have sold millions worldwide.

Eldon is the host of the popular radio show, Provocative Enlightenment. He has interviewed some of the most interesting people on the planet including the likes of JZ Knight (Ramtha), George Noory, Dr. Rupert Sheldrake, Lorna Byrne, Neale Donald Walsch, Dr. Jose Arguelles, William Paul Young, Lynne McTaggart, Don Miguel Ruiz, Debbie Ford, Nick Begich, Harv Eker, Gregg Braden, David Hawkins, James Twyman, Hossca Harrison, and Glynis McCants just to name a few. His shows are both provocative and always fresh by way of both the perspective and the exchange.
