Abundance. What does it look like?
Is it owning a room full of gold? Laying in a field of flowers? Or perhaps living in Shangri-La.
When do you know when you have enough? Where do you find abundance in the first place?
We are told to “have a better life,” but no instructions come with that advice. We wander around blindly, without direction, looking for the path of our dreams.
Finding self-esteem, losing weight, becoming less depressed – it seems that we should naturally know how to do these things. And we feel like failures because our dreams never happen.
We are not failures. We just don’t know how to accomplish our goals.
In this book, you will find:
- a no-nonsense approach to building a kinder self-image
- how to build meditation and gratitude into your day
- how people turn peak experiences into life-defining moments
- the real-world Shangri-La where people live beyond 100 years
- what an ancient great swordsman says about spirit and iron will
- how to have a more satisfying life
the story behind the book
Life cannot be all about trauma and bad thoughts. There must be a counterbalance to the negativity in our lives. This is why I wrote this book.
Each of us has a deep reserve of strength bubbling inside of us, whether we want to believe it or not.
Take the Quantum Leap into Abundance: A guide to the good life is not a book that tells you to think rich and you will be rich.
Since I wrote this book in 2017, quantum leap has gained momentum. The Secret started the rush, I believe, but my book is different from the rest. Different because my book talks about taking the right actions that will lead you to your dreams.
We want something, but our lives do not match our desires. We want riches, but we are in a dead-end job. We want a good life, but we cut corners.
Sorry to disappoint, the only way you will get anything accomplished in your life is to get off the couch and take positive steps toward that accomplishment.
Here is a brief overview of what’s inside this book
Hobson’s Choice is a term for choices that we really do not make. We take it or leave it. After an accident or with a disability, you did not choose to be in that situation, but here you are. Hobson’s choice.
One of my favorite people is Admiral Stockdale. You will learn about his story, but I will give you a hint:
It is called the Stockdale paradox.
Pin this on your wall where you can look at it often. It will help you through the rough times.
We talk about belonging and having a positive self-image. Are you a good communicator? Did you know listening is an art?
Have you ever heard of the “Talking Stick?” This is how many early cultures communicated in meetings. The only person allowed to speak was the one holding the talking stick. This would come in handy in many situations today!
The idea of “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” is not just a phrase from the Bible. It is a way of life for many cultures. Reciprocity.
Learn about the philosophy of life from the world’s greatest swordsman and how you can apply it to your life today. (No sword needed.) And I present to you a different way of meditation – I have dropped hints in other blogs.
And last but not least – a chapter on faith and forgiveness.
Forgiveness is not something you do for the other person. You forgive them so you can get on with YOUR life. Why harbor grudges and hatred?
Let them go. Do not let negative people control you.
Watch your dreams come true!
