The Science of Success is the best book on Success I have ever read. I've probably read every good book on personal growth and development (i.e., success) ever written, certainly all of the classics by Hill, Maltz, Allen, Mandino, and many others. James Ray's book (and tape and workbook series) covers every base better than any other, leaving its readers with a solid understanding of the universal laws behind the thoughts, feelings and actions needed to create lasting success in your life and work.
Ray maintains that anyone who has ever succeeded in life has done so by being aligned with the laws of success. The Science of Success starts out by revealing these universal laws in a systematic, easy-to-understand way. Then Mr. Ray follows up with the simple and straight-forward principles you can use to put the power of these laws to work to "live the life you dream of living."
He explains that you don't need to understand how these laws work any more than you need to know how and why electricity operates in order to use an appliance or turn on a light switch. All you need do is study the laws and apply the principles. The key, says Ray, is simply to live and work in harmony with the laws.
One of James Ray's talents I appreciate most is his giving a scientific spin to some seemingly airy-fairy stuff. He explains how everything is energy, and energy is always changing. (The concept comes from quantum physics.) We can shape rock-solid reality (just energy) with our thoughts (also energy). Both thoughts and objects, as energy, must play by the universal rules of physics. The Law of Perpetual Transmutation is simply that everything changes constantly and is forever in motion. You may be able to affect how something changes, but you cannot stop the motion of change itself.
Let's try a familiar one: Think about being attracted to someone who is "on the same wavelength." You didn't think about it literally, did you? That's the Law of Vibration and Attraction at work. We all search for harmony from the molecular level up.
Ray explains these rules and how to make them work for you. He gives readers and listeners a new take on cause and effect, focus, and replacing negatives with positives for better and better results. Simply stated, "We draw to us the things we focus on." Do you focus on what is going well for you, or on what isn't? Your answer explains your success or lack thereof.
We live in a relative world, says Ray, therefore relating is a key to success. "Relationships are everything and everything is due to relationships."
Once you understand the laws, Ray lays on you the Seven Power Principles for applying them to create the life you've always dreamed of having, doing and being. The Powers of Understanding, Paradigms, Vision, Partnership, Giving, Gratitude and Accountability govern all aspects of our lives, whether we are aware of them or not. Every time you deal with information, you combine Understanding and Paradigms. Have you ever broken through to greater understanding only to see your paradigms shift? What power could you command if you knew how to achieve that deliberately and consistently? The Science of Success has all the right questions and gives you all the right answers. This is a superb book! The best of it's kind Ive ever read. I will use it again and again to make my life and work all I dreamed they could be. -- John Milton Fogg, Editor-in-Chief, Upline
