The Seven Day Mental Diet updated by Jacueline Garwood

In 1935, eminent New Thought leader, Emmet Fox, wrote The Seven Day Mental Diet. He promised that, by refusing to let negative thoughts take root in your mind, you could change your life in only one week. 

Jacqueline Garwood, author of Future Pull, Partner with the Universe to Create the Life of Your Dreams, has updated this classic for the 21st century. This small book maintains the key message that Emmet Fox first gave the world--that you are what you think--but adds seven guidng principles to aid you in putting it into practice.
The seven guiding principles are the distilled wisdom of individuals who have been able to succeed in the Seven Day Mental Diet challenge. As Emmet Fox said, "It is simple, but it isn't easy." Changing your default attitude from negative to positive takes commitment, discipline, and persistence, but it is definitely worth it. 

The Seven Day Mental Diet, updated for the 21st century will show you how to become a conscious thinker, monitor and replace negative thoughts with positive, and use reframing to deal with difficult situations. You'll learn now to change your thoughts by moving your body and how to 'act as if' until you truly are what you want to become. 

In today's non-stop environment of negativity, perhaps there is nothing more important than fostering a perspective of positivity. You are what you think, and so is everything else. It's up to you to change yourself and ultimately to change the world. Take the challenge.

I will first say that I am writing this review about 3 weeks after finishing this book.  Not because I found it difficult to review but I wanted to give this concept a go and try it for a period of time to see if this method was for me.  I picked this up because it intrigued me and I wanted to give it a go.  I have tried various different concepts which focused on anything other than the way you think about this.  This book made me think and that's a good thing.

Although, for me, it is a slow process it is working and making  a difference for me.  This is one of those books that you should read and then delve back into time and time ago for motivation.  Although I have a long way to go, I am continuing to give this a go and is working very well for me so far.
