the luck factor.dr richard wiseman.i really cant express anough the difference this book made to my life once i started acting upon its principles.simply put the book shows that by how changing our thinking and attitudes our exterior lives can be greatly improved.i really cant recommend it more highly.
A friend in the helping field…offered me only an abridged 1 out of 2 tapes of Psychology Achievement. I became more pumped…directed and a goal monster. I eventually “bought the book was entitled – Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy ...and found the 2 tapes…and the whole version of the product-Psychology of Achievement . Though…the pieces I initially received was my cup of coffee and compass for many a day(:
its more a working manual than a book. written in a very scientific manner well worth the read.blessings mara.
In response to mara’s post:
Can you be more specific…manual versus book? Sounds good to me…A detailed..how to..?
its really just a list of principles that if you apply daily will[well for me any way]bring beneficial circumstances into your life,in other words change your thoughts change your future,proberly many other books advocate the same thing but i found this book very user friendly.
In response to mara’s post:
User friendly…I too am drawn to books like that… User friendly, A good read and sound principles. continued blessings…
I read a book by Richard Wiseman called 59 Seconds. It must have been pretty good because I remember how practical it was.
There are three books by John-Roger and Peter McWilliams that I really liked. I’ve read all of them more than once and everyone of them is dog-eared and underlined everywhere and has notes I’ve written all over them in the margins and on the flaps. They are Life 101, Do It! and Wealth 101! They are wonderful in their simplicity and refreshing in their conversational style. I think many people would get a lot out of them. A New Earth by Eckhart Tolle is also wonderful, at least it really helped me. I remember some quotes someone put up by Dale Carnegie the other day. Dale Carnegie stuff is also really useful. Bastiat’s “The Law” and “Economics in One Lesson” by Hazlitt are both great reads. You can read “The Law” in one evening. Man’s Search for Meaning is another great one.
Their,s a good chance I will read that book(the luck facter by mr wiseman before the end of this month.Without expecting a miracle,but if the book is of value to me or just interesting reading I won,t know unless I read it…...in 1993 at a meeting someone suggested a book worth reading,there was maybe 15 or 20 people in the room at the time,I don,t know if anyone else remembered the title or bought the book,but for whatever reason I bought the book that same day($4.95 paperback)I read it in a day or so.I can say with absolute certainty,that($4.95 paperback)was priceless
