They say: Everyone has the potential to be successful, but this success is often obscured behind a wall, a wall we may well have built ourselves in the first place. This book explains how to find and open the door through the wall. Success is not a secret - but a system. We can be prosperous, happy, healthy, loved and much more besides, and few writers have explained the system with as much clarity as Florence Scovel-Shinn.

She says:

Nothing is too good to be true
Nothing is too wonderful to happen
Nothing is too good to last

Information: 94 pages, paperback

    The main themes in this compact yet magical book are the power of positive thought to draw universal abundance to yourself, use of affirmations and following your intuition or 'hunches'. Throughout the text are examples of how 'you attract the things you give a great deal of thought to', be these 'enemy thoughts' (which leave you in a wilderness) such as fear, resentment and lack, or harmonious, peaceful thoughts which flow with the abundance of your destiny, which the book suggests God has already answered the call you put out for improvement in your life. There are many references to the bible, and had my intuition not guided me to look to see when the book was written, prior to reading the book (something I would not normally do, but was glad I did, for it was originally written in 1930, which sets the scene well for some of the examples the author uses to explain her theories), I may have not persevered, as overly-biblical reference tends to put me off.

    Having said that, this book is full of wonderful positive gems spread over its 93 pages. The chapters are short, with a positive affirmation at the end of each, and I found it an interesting and stimulating read, which I read from cover-to-cover in about two hours. At 93 pages, despite the initial reservations I held due to the use of biblical passages and psalms to explain life's laws of abundance and how most of us have subconsciously conditioned ourselves to draw lack to ourselves, focussing on the barriers to our desires and thus drawing only more barriers instead of abundance, as I read further on into the book, the author starts to use less biblical references and more real-life examples to highlight her message, which I found easier to read. I was left feeling uplifted and positive, and though it's perhaps not a book I will return to very often, at £4.99 I feel it is a worthwhile read and is certainly inspiring. I am left feeling urged to focus much more on my existing abundance, believing it will draw more of the same to me. I can see how in exploring why I haven't received what I wished for, I was focussing on the very blocks creating that lack. A good book, I recommend it!
