This book shows that it's not what happens to us in life, it's what we think about it.
For example, say you lose your job. Many people would then catastrophize and think negative thoughts about how awful it was, how we're going to be homeless and go broke and then we get depressed. Instead of thinking like that, we should think realistically about how it's tough that we lost our jobs, but we'll eventually find another one and that we will overcome the current crisis.
I was a pessimist for years. Negative thinking becomes a habit and changes brain chemistry. By thinking more realistically and talking back to our negative thoughts, we can live much happier lives.

A concise version of this book,
Get YOURSELF into the habit of painting pictures in your mind’s eye of how you really want to be.
Fantasize about YOU being confident, happy, prosperous, wealthy, sociable ,,,,,, etc
The more you do this, the more you generate good feelings, the more your subconscious mind take notice, the more your subconscious makes YOU act like that.
Habits, mental or physical, take 90 days to form ….. GET BUSY!!
Think failure to achieve failure, think SUCCESS to achieve SUCCESS!
You get more of what you focus on.
In a book by a world famous hypnotist, he tells of an experiment conducted with a group of manic depressives. Their task was to collect photos of any happy times in their life and stick them to surfaces such a fridge doors along with smiley face pictures. They had to have them all over the home and in the work place if allowed.
Each time one of these depressives looked at a ‘happy time photo’ or smiley face picture, they had to force themselves to picture a happy situation in their mind so to allow good feelings.
The experiment was a three month period. When assessed after the three months, it was found that the brains of those in experiment had been “rewired” and total contrast to the former manic depressive state they’d been in. They were now happy and had an optimistic outlook on life.
Can’t comment on the content because I can’t read it. I’ll buy a decently printed second hand copy instead.
good luck, T A P
