Let me begin by saying that reading Your Destiny Switch was thrilling and satisfying on many levels. I found myself cheering and grinning while I read--thankful that someone has FINALLY melded common sense, compassion and the Law of Attraction into a practical, encouraging manual on making the most out of life.
It has taken me YEARS of experimentation using wisdom gleaned from studying sacred texts and reading self-help/psychology books to undo destructive thought patterns that begat emotional chaos and confusion. Written in an engaging, lucid style, Peggy McColl explains what I found to be true via trial and error in her book Your Destiny Switch. (How I wish I had this book a decade ago!)
Now, I will tell you that I was skeptical at first, especially with the Hay House hype surrounding this book. ("Not another shallow Hay House dud ala Dyer", I groaned.) But despite the tacky publicity blitz surrounding Your Destiny Switch, I can honestly say that this book delivers in terms of showing readers how to master key emotions and use them to live a life of peace, joy and abundance.
Now, when I say "abundance", I'm not talking about the narcissistic money grabbing shtick often present in Law of Attraction products (can you say "The Secret"?). And, neither is Peggy McColl.Read more ›
Initially, this review focused on my issues with Hay House promotional tactics and the numerous "professional" reviews that, I thought, went way overboard in lauding the contributions of this book. In fairness to the author however, I did review her book more closely and I'm rewriting my review to reflect that. However in a nutshell, I would say to Hay House and others helping to promote new books: Please review your promotional strategies. We, who love your work and mission, view some of the strategies as promotional fluff at best and deception at worst. They are actually turning off some of your customer base, so please rethink how to promote and market your books to the spiritually inclined and attuned audience you are targeting. You can also read the comments responding to the original review for more on this.
As for Peggy McColl's book, I read through it quickly and here's my thinking. The book is a fine treatment of the role emotions play in our lives. I tried to revise my review to three stars but was unable to do so. This book would be helpful for those who have not read widely on this topic. However, if you've read any of the Hicks books (particularly Ask and It is Given or Deliberate Creation) or "Excuse me your life is waiting" by Lynn Grabhorn, or any other book that talks about how important it is to be in emotional alignment with the experiences you want to bring into your life, I fear this book will be a bit redundant. However, I do think the book is better written then the Grabhorn book so it might be of value to those who weren't in sync with Grabhorn's writing style.
Over half of the reviews posted as of today were written by people being promoted by the sale of this book!! Reviewers such as Randy Gilbert, Warren Whitlock, Teresa Bolen, Bob Burg, Barbara Rose, and Eldon Taylor are all part of a promotion Hay House (the publisher) is running! Two others shamelessly plugged their own books as part of their reviews and another guy actually works for the author!!
Do any of you realize that those of us who utilize the Amazon review system depend on it to make our buying choices based on its OBJECTIVITY?? Especially books related to Self-Help and Personal Growth/Development! C'mon! It's not supposed to be whoever has the most contacts willing to sell themselves out wins! We are here searching for advice, hoping to find guidance from real people with real life experience and opinions to share.
Peggy McColl's book may very well be as good as they all say. Who knows? But after coming here looking for help to try and make a decision about it and discovering example after example of blatant self-promotion instead, I for one am certainly no longer willing to make the leap of faith necessary to find out.
In my opinion, Peggy McColl has nailed this most difficult subject. She takes a very proactive approach to helping us understand our inner thoughts and feelings and how to exercise control so we can create our ideal life.
This book is a welcome "switch" from the norm and Peggy delivers on the promises of the subtitle, "Master Your Key Emotions, and Attract the Life of Your Dreams."
The switch she is talking about is not an "on-off" switch, but more of a "dimmer" switch that you find over a dining room table. You control the brightness and turn it up at will.
Since most people read non-fiction books for the benefit they bring, I've identified a few specific points that might help you.
Here are a couple of my favorite nuggets of wisdom Peggy shares in her book:
** You cannot escape from a prison unless you know you are in one. ** Emotions are tricky, because they can trap you and you might not even know it. Admitting you have some difficult emotions and then managing them will unlock the door.
** Knowledge alone is not enough. ** You must supplement your emotions with practical application. You can turn up you success volume by turning up your positive emotions.
** To have it all, you have to be willing to give it all up. ** You can create any level of success, but you can't be attached to the outcome. Positive emotions will bring you what you desire, but it has to come in its own way.Read more ›
