As a society in general, we have been led to believe that life is much more difficult than it really is. Success in all areas of your Life is not hard to attain at all-- that is of course, if you know the game and how to play it!
Read this book and change the way you look at yourself and more importantly how you look at every situation. Remember - it's not the situation- it's how you look at the situation that shapes your destiny.
I can not stress enough the positive impact that you will see happen in your life and the people's lives around you when you read this book and apply the principles and affirmations. You will begin to see all your dreams start to come true right before your eyes and you'll find yourself saying, "I can't believe it was that simple..."
I thank K. Orlich for recommending this book to me...and I thank Amazon.com for always having it in stock as I have bought a copy for every team member, employee and recommended it passionately to strangers Read this simple book--and more importantly-- know that it really is as simply as applying what you have learned and you will truly change your life... I feel like I am an educated, well-coached, team member w/ the Universe and that is the best bonus. Feeling the MOJO, understanding the game and enjoying LIFE is really so sweet ~ sweeter than the successes the divine path you will LIVE and see cleared for you.
This is Zane Aveton. it is now 2016 and I'm checking in to say hello and let you know that I am still 100% a fan of this book and how it simple truths have continued to guide me for effectively throughout my life.
In rebuttal of previous negative reviews, part of my background and education is a degree in Theology, and further studies into world religions and ancient texts. As someone who understands extensive biblical study - and I mean cross referencing original greek, aramaic and hebrew texts, as well as many, many authors and researchers works, writing theses and all the other such efforts required in such education and credentials, I still find this book compelling.
It was not the easiest read for me initially as Florence speaks in terms of things that I had never, at the time, really heard much of before. It was a new kind of thinking for me. The only reason why I was reading the book was because an 80+ year old lady recommended it to me and asked me to.
I found myself challenged in thought/perception, moral philosophy and interpretation by a book written in 1925! And unlike anything I had read up until that time. There were times I was very frustrated by what I read. Yet, in the end, I not only could not argue with her assertions and interpretations, I found truth and peace in them. The experience catalytically changed my perspective, opened my world and even improved my life in doing so. Today, there is no other book in my collection (of multiple bookcases of various sources) with more permanently housed bookmarks and notations. I could not now recommend a book more highly than this one for self-improvement. It is very positively written with hope and love. Remember that the creation of reality begins with the foundation of thought. Florence teaches according to this principle and touches on elements that can also be found in science and quantum physics, another study I highly recommend.
If you're reading this because you're at a point of seeking in your life, it's a pretty unassuming, economical little book and well worth the return.
For those who have the eyes and ears....
