Today I am sharing my review of the book Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…But This Book Will. It’s interesting how you never know what you need to hear or read until you either hear it or read it. I have known that I needed to work on a few things in my life. Also kind of knew that I was going about it the wrong way but nothing made it more clear that I needed to change the way I was going about changing things until I read this book.
Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…But This Book Will is by David Essel. He is a life coach, teacher, addiction recovery coach, radio/tv host, and an international speaker. The purpose of him writing this book is to give people a different way of thinking about positive thinking. He shares stories from his celebrity friends, shares his own personal stories, and examples of how people who put in work with a combination of positive thinking are successful. Through out the book he gives you ways to change your subconscious mind and move towards your goals. Plus at the end of each chapter you have questions where you can reflect over what the chapter is about and what you learn. He also asks you what action steps you are going to take. So you start to create a plan to what you are going to change while you are reading.
I created a periscope where I expressed my thoughts about the book and what I learned. It is a little long so I can give a quick recap of my thoughts about the book here but you can watch the video to get a better idea of what I learned. This is a really great book. At a few points in the book I kind of felt like I was sitting in front of him and he was talking directly to me. You know that feeling when you are in church and you feel like the preacher is calling you out. That is exactly how I felt. There are a few things that he talked about that I never would’ve thought applied to me but it does. For example I have co-dependent tendencies. I depend on others to validate me and make me happy. I also depend on my ability to make others happy before I feel I am happy. I would have never came to this conclusion without reading this book. I am very glad that I gave this book a chance because the title is definitely a little off putting. Watch my video to get a full review.
