There are some things I can accept and buy about this book and others I cannot. I do believe that some things in my life are in my control. I do believe that like attracts like or the idea of negativity breeds negativity. We are basically talking about the 'self-fulling prophency' and at times this is true. That is what the book talks about. They just use very metaphysical and fancy terms to say the same thing. Do I believe that all things that happen to me are my own fault. Somewhat! Having said that the techniques in this book of visualization,make- believe, role-models, etc, etc sound workable and can probably help out when one is in a bad patch in life. Taking a situation and simply changing how you look at it can make the situation much more bearable and maybe enjoyable. Basically we are talking about playing a mind-game on yourself and sometimes it does work. Alan Carr and the 'Easyway to Stop Smoking' does the same thing. Instead of looking at smoking as a pain, as something to give up. Instead I visualized myself not smoking. I talked about how awesome it is I was a non-smoker. I did not use terms like "quitting" or "giving up" smoking. I am now 3 months smoke-free. What bothers me about this book is the same thing that bothers many others in their comments. Cancer is not my fault. Child abuse was not bred by that child. A woman being raped was not that woman's fault. The people who died in the holocaust are at fault ? This is crazy! Also, I am an empiricist by nature. I dont think it has ever hurt anyone to look at the pros/cons of any situation. To only look at the pros is to put blinders on about something. Another thing that bothers me about this book is the idea that ALL 'negativity is bad.' So if someone close to me dies, will I breed ill-events in my life for mourning that person? According to this book , the answer is yes. When in truth, I will mourn. Time will pass and that mourning will turn into happy nostalgia. Nothing wrong with feeling the loss of a person. So basically I am on the fence about this book. I see its points and its benefits but it ignores some important issues that I think do harm.
