Change is the End Result of All True Learning

Because I’ve been interested in improving the quality of my life for almost 30 years, I have read a multitude of books. Many of those didn’t interest me, didn’t ring true or even seem to provide anything I could believe in… I thought they were baloney! Those books have gone to the second hand shops for someone else to try. The list of books below are sitting on my bookshelf today and within each one I either found something of interest, or resonated with it wholly.

Turn the Pages of Your Imagination

It will be one of the greatest adventures you ever embark upon

Success Principals

Jack Canfield – 2005

This book can help you to increase your confidence, tackle daily challenges, live with passion and purpose, and realise all your ambitions. It is more than a collection of good ideas, this book spells out the 64 timeless principles used by successful men and women throughout history. And the fundamentals are the same no matter what your profession or circumstances. I suggest that you read the book once, and if you enjoy it, set about applying the principles week after week… but you must take action!

The Artists Way

Julia Cameron – 1996

The seminal book on the subject of creativity. It’s an international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist’s life. Still as vital today – or perhaps even more so – than it was when it was first published. It is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work, republished in 2006 with a a new introduction. Cameron reflects upon the impact of “The Artists’ Way” and describes the work she has done during since it’s inception, providing new insights into the creative process. If you’re creative, it’s a must have!

The Secret

Rhonda Byrne – 2006

“The Secret” is a self-help book that embarks to motivate the reader about a universal paradigm about success that can be achieved, though it remains hidden for most people.  The book posits the law of attraction as a primeval law that completes the law of the universe (as well of our lives) through the process “like attracts like”. Byrne suggests that as people think-and-feel, they send a corresponding frequency to the universe that in turn attracts events and circumstances of the same frequency.

11 Forgotten Laws

Bob Proctor – 2014

The 11 Forgotten Laws is said to have helped thousands of people completely transform their lives. Written by Mary Morissey and Bob Proctor, the course is designed as an expansion of “Working with the Law”, which was written by Raymond Holliwell. The 11 Forgotten Laws builds on the premise of “The Secret” and the laws are classed as “forgotten” because only very few people are aware of them. But, can it really enrich your life as thousands of other say? Or is there a reason why these laws were forgotten in the first place?

Bob Proctor

You are the only problem you will ever have and you are the only solution.

Jack Canfield

Positive people maintain a positive focus in life no matter what is going on around them.

Tony Robbins

People are not lazy. They simply have impotent goals, that is, goals which do not inspire them.

John Kehoe

All problem areas of your life are caused by faulty belief systems. You are the cause of your problems and you are the solution to your problems.

Wishes Fulfilled

Wayne Dyer – 2012

The book provides an exploration of the highest-self and definitely shows you how you can truly change your concept of self, embark upon a spiritual way of living and fulfill the spiritual truth that with God, all things are possible. By practicing the specific technique for retraining your subconscious mind, you are encouraged to not only place into your imagination what you would like to manifest for yourself, but you are given the specifics for realigning your life so you can live out your highest calling and stay connected to your Source.

Mind Power

John Kehoe – 1987

The two primary types of thinking are critical thinking and creative thinking. Critical thinking relies on logic and comes from the conscious mind. Creative thinking relies on imagination and comes from the subconscious mind. In “Mind Power into the 21st Century”, Kehoe explains how to harness the power of the subconscious mind. He suggests that you become whatever you consistently think about. For example, confident thoughts create a confident person. We must change our thoughts if we wish to change our self-image.

Infinite Possibilities

Mike Dooley – 2010

The book is the master work from teacher, author and speaker, Mike Dooley. He clearly knows that we create our own reality, our own fate, and our own luck. We are beings filled with infinite possibility, ready to explore how powerful we truly are. Manifesting dreams shouldn’t be hard work, it’s about belief and expectation. Dreams are not accidental, nor inconsequential. If someone were to tell us the truth about life, reality and the powers we all possess, would it be recognised? You’re very likely to be inspired by this work.

Mind Power

Peter McWilliams – 1991

Part of the Life 101 series. McWilliams suggests that often, when we are faced with new, exciting opportunities, which might expand our capabilities and move us ever-closer to living our dreams… we respond with “Yes” or “But”, and some people have even merged the words into “Yes-But”, and then ignore the chance of a lifetime. This book assists and inspires the reader to get off their “buts” in a simple, humorous and down-to-earth manner. A guide to setting and achieving goals, outlining steps and providing motivation.

Be Yourself

Lynda Field – 2010

A source of inspiration for those who are so busy trying to get their lives ‘sorted’ that they have forgotten their true purpose. The demands of the material world can keep us rushing about, until we find ourselves going round and round in circles. Excessive activity can make our daily reality feel like a relentless routine. To lead a meaningful and happy life we need to develop our inner strengths and qualities and we do this by balancing our ‘doing’ and our ‘being’. Learn to be active but aware and conscious of the present moment.
