A book finally addressing the crux of the matter
18 April 2018
Motivational lectures and books never become outdated as long as there are people out there to follow a magic formula that will bring magic in their lives. But in spite of several books and sources, the lasting transformation still remains elusive by following any ideas or techniques prescribed by motivational speaker. Even though a short time change is seen it never translates to a lasting transformation. It remains elusive.
The author, I believe, has unearthed the reason why temporary change does not convert to a permanent transformation. The basic premise he arrives is that “The behaviour, expression of a person and the belief he carries about himself such as “I am good at this and not so good at that.” is dependent on the program he has received while he was growing. So, every person grows up with a mental picture about himself. The mental image he forms for himself comes mostly by what he hears from his close circle like parents, relatives, friends and teachers. If a child hears a negative comment about himself and believes it, then his growth in that particular area of comment withers and the child grows with low self confidence in that area. That’s why, for ex., a child who says he is good in music but not in math might have grown up with a comment that “you are good in music but not in math”. Most of the motivational books, and techniques fail because it doesn’t try to remove this past program which a person carries within, instead it gives superficial methods, which does not last long.
According to the author, only by changing this pre-program which is present in the subconscious mind and giving the subconscious mind a newer program with what we actually desire to have in your lives, a lasting transformation happens. He gives practical methods by which this can be done. I feel it is a good book that should be read by children and adult alike. The chapters are short and easy to read.
I recommend this book to all.
