And then this book came up in my internet search of "Financial self-sabotage syndrome". OMG, Mr.St.John make me realize I'm not alone in this self-destructive and lonely path! The book is very eye-opening, emotional and insightful. With this book's inspiration now I will apply "permission" to any important thing in life, Permission to love, permission to be happy etc. Not limit myself anymore. I'm free.
Read the entire volume and you will see how he comes full circle to help us understand what has caused us to make certain choices in the past. Defining our own success, becoming responsible for ourselves (rather than the entire world), these are things that help us clarify what we want.
I've spent quite a bit of time reading success literature, and Noah is right in that there are plenty of recipes books out there. But, a recipe is not what you are missing. It is in fact the desire to cook.
The book does an excellent job of teaching us how to give ourselves permission to enjoy. And enjoyment, now isn't that what success really is after all?
Reading a ton of "Succeed This Way" volumes? Do yourself a favor, read this one, think it through, run through the exercises. You may be doing a lot of busy work in those other volumes for no reason at all.
The best insight I got from this was that choosing not to succeed can be because you feel responsible for the entire world, since you can't get there you can't succeed. Not to say don't have ambition, more to say ambition is best when your feet are planted firmly in your jet - otherwise you simply won't be able to fly there. With your feet firmly planted, it's okay to go there. Let it be okay, let yourself go.
The parable of the dining room - EXCEPTIONAL. The central message here, we all have something to contribute. People are waiting for us to contribute it. You are not doing anyone any good by NOT contributing what you have to offer. With this in mind, we can contribute, be successful, and still be humble. We are part of a much greater design that we were chosen to participate in.
1. You can's solve "why to" problems with "how to" solutions.
2. Affirmations don't work because most people don't believe them. "I feel happy. I feel heathy, I feel terrific!" Then why am I miserable.
This is a potentially breakthrough book.
