Book Description

The mind can be your best friend or your worst enemy. It can be the center of miracles, or of madness. It can be a place of truth, or a place of lies; it can be an environment of peaceful contemplation, or of desperate painful isolation. The choice is ours to make. No one else is thinking in our heads. As one classic horror movie proclaims, “The calls are coming from inside the house!” With all the talk in the world about bullying, the one thing that is rarely considered is that the most vicious monster, the most insidious bully, who is out to terrorize, torment us and steal our joy, is not so much out there in the schools or the workplace or the neighborhood. The bully we cannot seem to escape from is the one living inside our own heads. In Starve a Bully, Feed a Champion, Jacob Glass and his spirit guides take the reader through a gentle 101 day spiritual boot camp to guide the mind away from the tormenting thoughts of the ego and toward the peaceful, joyous and loving thoughts which lead to freedom and peace of mind. Based on the principles of A Course in Miracles and other New Thought teachings, the goal of this boot camp is the attainment of inner peace under any and all circumstances. You were not meant to merely survive, but to thrive!

5.0 out of 5 stars What if you really could? June 30, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I know it sounds crazy, but what if you really could make up your mind about what kind of a day you were going to have before you have it? That's only one of Jacob Glass' outlandish suggestions. It gets worse, he goes on to suggest that you need only train your mind (much as you would train a puppy) to focus on the things that reinforce rather than erode the champion inside you. Sure, if it were only that easy! Well, to be honest, Jacob never says it will be easy. In fact, he strongly advocates for "penguin steps," insisting that lasting change only comes as a result of slow, steady practice. Then, in the tradition of truly remarkable teachers throughout the world, Jacob lays it out, step-by-painstaking-step, until even a 61-year-old retired educator like myself can't escape the truth of it. In this case, like most, the proof is in the pudding, and Starve a Bully, Feed a Champion is an awesome pudding! Each morning, before we even get out of bed, my wife and I take turns reading the next chapter to each other, and there's just no denying that getting our minds in a better place, with a positive and instructive Jacob Glass thought-for-the-day, not only makes each new day better for both of us, but makes us feel like we have choices we never thought we had before. Training our frisky old minds to focus on and "attach" to only that which is best about Life, the Universe, and Everything isn't the easiest job in the world, but it sure helps to have a real "Puppy Whisperer" give us a great head start each morning!

5.0 out of 5 stars Starve a Bully November 13, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I've been reading the book, a chapter a day, for about 2 weeks. I do know I feel better, I sleep better and I think I'm even nicer. So many things we should know, but never got to use all that advice we give others for ourself. I look forward to seeing what next year will bring as I have about another 86 chapters to go.

By way of introduction, I have been doing the Course In Miracles diligently in a Do-It-Yourself solo mode for a little over a year now, devoting to each morning the necessary time to read the text and incorporate the daily exercises into my life. As anyone who has read the text for CIM knows, stylistically it is very beautiful but at times the dense writing can also be tough going, especially when undertaken without any external support. After one year, I felt it was time to ratchet it up a bit and introduce some outside influences into my regimen so I didn't feel so isolated in the process. The timing for the release of Jacob's book could not have been better. With "Starve a Bully..." he offers daily themes spread out over 101 lessons that are clear, precise, applicable in a practical worldly way and that truly resonate on multiple levels depending upon where you are at with the work. There is so much I really love about Jacob's writing: he is refreshingly honest and non-patronizing and doesn't mince words about the importance of really doing the work necessary to achieve the desired results--all taught with a light, disarmingly sweet touch that refuses to take itself too seriously. While I would have liked a bit more support on the day-to-day journaling which are an essential aspect of the work (and downloadable from Jacob's website), the minimalist input has forced me to rise to the occasion and find my own unique way through the worksheet thus strengthening my spiritual muscles on a daily basis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrive! June 18, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As Jacob so aptly teaches in this invaluable book, "You were not born to merely be a survivor, you were born to be a thriver because you are a champion." You will learn, in easy, palatable, inspirational bites, how to suppport the champion within so you can be happy. Learn how to really banish bullying in the world by banishing your own self-critical thinking- that bully within. This brilliant, wise and eye-opening book is the best game-changer you will ever embark upon because, as Jacob also tells us "You don't live the life you deserve. You live the life you think you deserve."
