Her thought is, not only do we motivate ourselves and our subconscious by writing our thoughts and plans and dreams down, but in turn the energy of the outside world becomes more focused for us as well. I really do believe this. I haven't done all of the assignments yet, but I intend to.
Ironically some of the examples and assignments she suggests, I have done in ignorance of this book and the results are just what she predicted, so I know it works.
What I particularly like is that this book is not a "Rah, Rah", happy yuppie book, like some of the ones out there but a more thoughtful approach for a person to carve out the life they want. This could work for many walks of life and is just not applicable for the middle to upper class income.
We all have dreams, when we put them on paper we are quite a bit closer to realizing them they we ever thought.

About the Author
Here is one specific exert that I found was incredible. "Writing about the outcome helps you to stay focused, even when you're not focused - or think you're not. The written word keeps the image steady, unwavering, like a lighthouse beam, steady on. It keeps the goal, the intended consequence in mind.
When you focus on the outcome, write in the present tense, as though you were describing something that is already happening. It call it "writing as reality". Be sure to date your description, because when you read it back later, you will have an eerie sense that you wrote it after it took place rather than before.
Now dig deeper. Not just the outcome, but the outcome of the outcome. Don't just write about what you want, but include why you want it. Why does it make a difference whether you have this or not? And then keep going deeper - why do you want that? And then deeper still, the outcome of that second outcome and so forth, until you hit the core of it."
Very good book for going deep within yourself for the answers that you already have.
We have become a society where we have been brainwashed by what is possible and what is not. We accept and embrace our limitations as though they are our best friends. We let these limitations rule our perceptions and then we think and feel and act as though life is not on our side. The universe is always and in all ways for us but the universe will always mirror EXACTLY what we believe to be true for us.
I decided to start writing between 30-45 minutes a day in the morning when my mind was most open and receptive. I made myself a homemade journal with some quotes and pictures I found particularly inspiring and almost immediately I began experiencing results. It wasn't the writing itself that created the results in my life, it was the belief that I had going into the writing exercises that made it possible. Writing, to me, just clarifies things more. I can right/write every situation through the written word. I believe it is possible. I believe in miracles. I believe that there are always opportunities and situations and experiences ready to reveal themselves in our lives BUT we have to be aware that they exist in order to notice them and writing is a good way to redirect our focus and uncover the possibilities that are always just silently waiting to be noticed.Read more ›
