(You've Been Warned)
First read it.
Second, this book, along with MANY books that I have read come down to two things.
1. Our subconscious does 90-95% of our daily thinking. It learns through deductive, hypnotic, trance-like states. (Like when one is running, driving, or watching TV and were completely absorbed in the process. Through REPETION in a DEDUCTIVE state, you gain the POWER to change your mind.
2. Our skill set, action, or behavior is +80% of success. (Anthony Robbins and MANY others).
SOLUTION: Become completely absorbed in something you wish to become and develop the necessary skill set to execute your desires.
(Also Law of Vibration, Law of Attraction...yes it's all real.)
BUY this book, study it, apply it, and reap your greatness!
I've read a lot of LOA books, especially in the past couple of years...some good, some so-so, some just "get rich quick" schemes for the authors, or so it often seems. And when it comes to the older books on this topic, they often seem dated and not relevant for people living in today's world.
The Power of the Subconscious Mind is a winner, in all respects.
It IS extremely relevant, for anyone, at any stage in life.
It is NOT preachy, although it's obvious that the author did have strong religious beliefs, he doesn't "preach" or push a particular creed or religion at any time in this book.
His message is for everyone seeking an happy, healthier and more prosperous life. And who isn't?? ;-)
The practical advice in this book is easy to follow and powerful. Enjoyable, easy and not a chore!! A nice change from some other books on the topic I've read and gave up on.
I make it a point to re-read at least a couple of chapters, every day or two, as a good reminder and pick me up. I've had some excellent results already, following many of the suggestions in this book.
No, I haven't won 112 MILLION as Cynthia Stafford did, but I've had a lot of smaller wins so far, and not just when it comes to financial gains. As Murphy so wisely states in this book, money and prosperity ARE very important, but they are not the whole story when it comes to living a successful and happy life.
If you are debating about what LOA to buy, you won't be sorry you choose this one!
Geraldine Helen Hartman, author and top reviewer
This title has all that and some additional insights into belief, self-esteem, but it also explains why you might be failing at something because of wrong thinking, and how to correct it. I liked it very much. It was well-organized, and easy to read. I highly recommend it.
Haanel’s book is better for it lacks the hard to swallow Murphy anecdotes, makes fewer claims to biblical support of the principles, but contains the primary ones Murphy cites, is much more succinct and logically rigorous, and has practical techniques.
Another example of Murphy deriving ideas from Haanel is the change of tense in the biblical ‘believe that Ye receive them and Ye shall have them’. Haanel explains it too. Perhaps you recall Murphy saying there is a principle of mathematics but none of error etc. That is exactly what Haanel wrote half a century earlier, so I conclude Murphy got the idea and quote from Charles Haanel in The Master Key System. Whether Haanel derives the quote from an earlier source- he does refer to Emerson and Judge Thomas Troward (as does Murphy) - I have no idea. And you might see that Murphy recounts a story about the oil magnate Flagler-that story together with Flagler’s interview comments are given in more detail in Haanel. There are many other examples of derivatives, and I find it hard to believe Murphy did not draw some from Haansen.
This is not a criticism of Murphy, but rather a confirmation that his ideas and this book were not as original as some believe. He is also rather repetitive and a bit long winded.
Most law of attraction books rely on The Master Key (without citing it), but Murphy’s book is one of the better ones. It is, despite being good, not as good as Haanel’s book. The best three books I have read on the law of attraction are 1. Haanel The Master Key (Quite simply the best law of attraction book by a country mile); 2. Anderson Three Magic Words -more philosophical and metaphysical, and very provocative; and 3. Murphy’s own Infinite Right to Be Rich - despite the title (which some might read as grasping), it is an inspiring read, particularly in the first few chapters.
But the Law of Attraction is not for everyone- some will view it as nonsense. But these books are worth reading, and I suspect others just say the same things-especially what Charles Haanel says. As always decide for yourself. I’ve read a few more but concluded these are the three best I’ve read (and in that order of merit), so no doubt there are many other worthy books on the subject.
