Book Description

What are great things in life? Money? Good health? Good relationships? Happiness? Yes, of course. And this book is about these topics. But what if the next global financial crisis makes your job and your money disappear? What if you are no longer as healthy as you would like to be? What if an important relationship becomes complicated? What if happiness seems a distant memory? In other words: what if these things turn against you? And what if as a consequence, you think, the whole world is against you? What then?
This book invites you to a journey that has a lot to do with the way you see and live your life: the way you think about life and the world you live in. After that journey – if you took your time and paid attention – nothing will be the same. Great things will happen in your life BECAUSE YOU MAKE THEM HAPPEN.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life-Changing! March 6, 2013
By Solo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I own my own home, but it is not the home of my dreams. Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for what I have and it is a place of great comfort, but ever since I visited this particular home, in a great community, I have wanted to purchase the home of my dreams. It is the most beautiful home I have ever seen. Prior to reading this book, it was a distant dream. I might get it, I might not. After reading this book, I have set in motion what I need to get it and get it quickly. If you want to make great things happen in your life, read this book and follow it step by step and you'll see why I say that it is life-changing. The book will set you straight and keep you in focus!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Powerful Guide to Developing an Attitude for Success February 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the Forward to "How to Make Great Things Happen in YOUR LIFE," we find this powerful advice: "Life is not what happens to you, life is what you make of the stuff that happens to you: life is what you think about the stuff that happens to you and what actions you take as a result of your thinking."

This profound idea is the introduction to a powerful approach to happiness and achievement, with a roadmap for putting into practice the idea that human events do not guide us to great success or ruin, it is WHAT WE THINK ABOUT THESE EVENTS. As Shakespeare wrote, ". . . for there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so."

What is unique and wonderful about this book is that, although Fred Schäfer is a real expert on what it takes to succeed and thrive in this life, he relates his expertise in a down-to-earth and common-sense style, without any sense that he is ever talking down to the reader. He compassionately relates his advice, making it clear that he has been through failures like everyone else. It is the attitude that counts, and Fred Schäfer makes it utterly clear how to create, foster and maintain such an attitude to be successful and happy and full of energy to take on any task. I highly recommend this book, if you want to improve your life.

5.0 out of 5 stars In-depth November 27, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book is so thorough. It delves into the nooks and crannies - no short-cuts. I was really open to this book when reading it. I currently have a lot of inner work to do, so I really got into it.

It's a great book to purchase as the new year approaches. A new slate to create changes in how you think and perceive things. And that's what it all comes down to - thoughts and perception.

Fred Schafer selflessly shares some of his own personal experiences with his son and how he went about achieving a different outcome. There's a great chapter about dealing with rejection - oranges and apples....

Yeah, if you're serious about changing your life and REALLY doing the work, then this is the book to purchase. It's really sincere.
I like sincerity in writing.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for everyone who seeks happiness in life September 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fred is a great public speaker. I know because he tells us that this book is really just one of his seminars that he gives.

I have to say kudos. He gives his own shortcomings and how he overcame them as a role model to all of us who make the same mistakes and explains in common language how to do it better.

I have to say that I was entertained, it was thought provoking and life altering.

I can't recommend it enough My life was improved for having read it.
