OK, I am decidedly NOT a self-help book kind of person. I don't buy into them, I don't, as a rule, spend my money on them. That being said, this was a really fasinating book. According to Lynn Grabnorn, the reason that most of us are trapped in unhappy, unfufilling lives is because we vibrate negative energy and therefore attract negative energy, much as a tuning fork vibrating at a particular pitch vibrates other similarly pitched tuning forks. So we need to consciously change the vibrations we're sending out in order to attract positive things into our lives.......she uses the example of visualizing yourself driving a shiny red sports car instead of focusing on the fact that you don't have one, because if you focus on the fact that you don't have one, you'll continue to not have one. I don't believe all of her ideas, but I do believe that negativity breeds negativity, so I decided to suspend my disbelief and try her techniques out. According to my extremely unscientific study, it works. I don't have a shiny new sports car, but I have noticed that I have been more productive, happier, and much less worried about money since I started following the steps she describes. Weird.
