YOU ARE THE Problem
YOU ARE THE Solution
DORRANCE PUBLISHING CO., INC.
This book is “published by Dorrance Publishing.” This book was an easy to read book with plenty of diagrams and scriptures to back up the solutions to problems we have in common each day as individuals.
The reason why Andy Holligan wrote the book is to help anyone improve their life by, “changing the way we think.” Three things can change your life; 1) WHAT YOU LISTEN TO, 2) WHAT YOU LISTEN TO, 3) WHAT YOU READ, 4) WHO YOU ASSOCIATE WITH. I find this to be true, as he gives plenty of examples to go along with his claims. In order to solve a problem we have to;
( 1 ). Accept what has happened.
( 2 ). What can I do about it?
( 3 ). Begin immediately to put this plan into action.
Someone once said, “You don’t have a problem, you only have a decision to make.” But in the case of bad things happening to us who we can do nothing about, we just have to accept that it is so. We can either be bitter or get better, but we can’t do both. But by being bitter, we can destroy both our bodies and our minds.
Andy touches on all of our human emotions to solve problems in the best way possible. I enjoyed his scripture references such as, “make a tree good and its fruit will be good, or make a tree bad and its fruit will be bad, for a tree is recognized by its fruit (Matt. 12:33). This means that we should seek advice from the scriptures and not people in our lives because the bible has proven to be accurate over and over again. If a person is not a bible believer, this book would help them understand their problems in more than one way. They may choose not to see or use the scriptures for their solutions because Andy gives more than one example of how to heal our daily thoughts.
I would recommend this book to anyone of any age as it is a great resource tool for staying positive during our economic times of 2011.
