By Bonnie Neely on January 31, 2005
Format: Paperback
Slow Down, The Fastest Way To Get Everything You Want by David Essel has seemingly an oxymoron for a title. However, the author, a Lifestyle Coach, speaker and TV/radio host on motivational programming nationally syndicated, shares his personal experiences of pushing too hard and working too many hours before discovering how slowing down can actually help you accomplish your goals and realize your dreams much more effectively and rapidly than stressing yourself with overwork and undue demands. He leaned to quiet his ego and realize that accomplishing more did not always equal success. By forming new habits of daily prayer and meditation, regular exercize and strength training, eating and sleeping correctly for good health and energy, he was able to build his life to be far more satisfying to himself and with time and energy to serve others and to form loving relationships. In his book and his coaching he stresses the three keys of manifesting what you want are Intention, Gratitude, and Action. This book is a wealth of lifestyle secrets for success for anyone who wants a do-it-yourself help plan. An excellent and easy book to read and follow.

Slow Down is an excellent example of the power and effectiveness in simple and clear communication. David Essel has identified those areas of our lives that define us; spirituality, personal life, career, love, health and, in short form, he has provided us a guide to maximize our potential in each. I've been reading self-help and motivational books for over 30 years and not since "How To Be Your Own Best Friend" has the message that "the answer is within your self and is in your reach" been so succinctly delivered. David exposes self discovery and personal growth for what it is ... a committment to make the journey and do the work to be the best that you can be. This book is a perfect companion for the person who is interested in challenging themselves everyday to be and do their best. It provides the tools for you to do the work that is specific to your life and what you need at this particular moment. I have it on my nightstand and regularly open it to a random spot in the book and review "the basics" and reflect on that area. This exercise has always inspired some fresh and energizing thought. Give the book a try. I'm confident you'll be better off for the experience!

How would you feel if you wanted to change your life???... I mean your change your WHOLE life - personal relationship, career, place where you live, body image, deeper level of spirituality, living with more passion and meaning.... What if you wanted it all... ALL OF IT!!!

Well, that was me just a little over a year ago. At the time, all I knew was that there were things that I wanted to change. Through his book, David guides you to living the life you want to live in an amazingly short period of time. He shares with you the power of journaling to reach deep within ourselves the answers that only we ourselves know. If you are committed to having the life you truly desire, then not only do I suggest that you READ THE BOOK, but most importantly DO THE WORK.

Through this book and doing my own personal exploration, in just a little over one year, I have achieved incredible results in my personal life, career and business, health and body image, spirituality and more. I am living the life I dreamed for myself, a REAL LIFE with more passion, intensity, meaning... and I am having a blast!

Take the first step. Read David's book. Do the work... one chapter at a time. It is well worth the journey.

Sure, right I thought, slow down......get more. I have to say I didn't believe it at first, but after reading and doing the exercises in the book I feel more in touch with myself and much happier. I've recommended this book to friends and clients and will continue to do so. Get your copy, grab a cup of tea and then slow down and enjoy life.

David Essel has written a book that will positively impact anyone with a desire to be the best he or she can be. A quick review of his website will reveal that, through his writing, radio show and lifestyle coaching, David has dedicated thousands of hours to personal growth - something few have the opportunity to do. In Slow Down, David has provided us with an easy to read compendium of wise, practical and inspiring ideas that can guide us to making our personal dreams come true in all areas of life: health, career, love, spiritual growth. David doesn't try to tell us what those dreams should be, he simply shows us that through the Three Keys of Manifestation: Intention, Gratitude and Action, we have the ability to make it happen.

With a demanding job and a heavy community volunteer role, I have found myself rushing from one task to the next. Many of the positive habits that had helped me get where I am today had been abandoned - no time for journaling or long power walks on the beach. David has reminded me that to be the person I want to be tomorrow, I must first determine my intentions and then begin today to manifest that dream with action. Furthermore, by living intently each day I can operate at my peak performance. Ultimately what David invites us to do is to invest in ourselves. I am renewed, energized and refocused.

This book is the perfect gift for your best friend, your partner, your college graduate, your employees, but most of all for yourself.
