Achieving Your Promises by Timothy Ryan Patton

Achieving Your Promises by Timothy Ryan Patton

Achieving Your Promises by Timothy Ryan Patton

This is a book that will show you how to live the life you have always dreamed of living. In 2014 I am making myself a promise to follow through my dreams, visions and life purpose with more action as described by Mr. Timothy Patton.
This book is a journey and thought provoking and you will want to take your time reading it. The day I got the book, I skimmed over the contents, then the chapters and just briefly looked it over. The cover will make you feel a calm peace and the title will capture your attention. This book was published in 2008 and one that reminds me a lot of “The Secret” because the Law of Attraction is a real concept that actually works and the real life stories show us all that.
As Mr. Patton says, why wait until something horrible happens before making changes to your life. Do it now!
Do you know why this book was written? You need to know that Tim was in a horrible car accident in 1991, where a truck hit the car where his head flew through the window and broke the glass causing the glass to get inside his eye, cut the cornea, and caused his vision to be distorted to 20/70. That is the day Timothy Patton decided to make permanent changes to his life to help those of us who need to find our vision, our path, our dreams, our promises, our destiny, our purpose.
Timothy highly recommends that you create a vision board for your life in each area. For example:

The reason it’s important to do this is because it will help remind you of where you want to be, see, do in your life and not be distracted by others opinions. It will keep your dreams FOCUSED so that you can take the proper steps to achieving them.
I have to admit that some of the information in the book is out of date and that is okay because the author is sharing from what he knew at that time when he needed to get his information shared out into the internet. Change is a constant in life and if you are not able to grow, learn, and accept that then your life is in what I call a “funk.” That will need to change in order for your life to get un-stuck from the daily grind of “nothingness” to servitude and helping others to get the wheel of your life rolling into the direction it is meant to go.
This is my review in 2014 and I will have to update it as I read and learn and study more of this book because it is not a “one time read” it is a book to change your life for the better if you are willing to follow the ideas, stories, and concepts Timothy Patton discovers and helps those willing to learn it.

A Book Review of The Dance of Intimacy by Harriet Lerner

The Dance of Intimacy

Price: $10.87

5.0 out of 5 stars The Dance of Intimacy, January 14, 2013
This review is from: The Dance of Intimacy (Paperback)

I have had this book on my TBR pile for a while and finally got around to reading it. It is a woman’s guide to courageous acts of change in key relationships. Harriet is the author of the “The Dance of Anger and “The Dance of Deception.” This book was published in 1989 which was 24 years ago!

What do you learn about failed relationships? You learn what intimacy love is NOT. This book will challenge your beliefs about how you view intimacy. The secret key to know, learn and understand foremost is that you cannot change others you can only change yourself. This book is about making responsible and lasting changes that enhance your capacity for genuine closeness which will be staying together “Over the long haul.”

What is intimacy? It is to be who you are in a relationship and allow the other person to do the same.

1.Talk openly about whatever is “important to you.”
2.Clarify the limits of what is acceptable and tolerable to you in the relationship.
3.Stay emotionally connected to that other party who thinks, feels and believes differently; without needing to change, convince, or fix the other person. (Neither party should silence, sacrifice, or betray the self and each person should express their strengths and vulnerability’s, weaknesses and competence in a balanced way).

Your number one goals are to have relationships with others that do not operate at the expense of the other. The key is as long as women function FOR men, Men will HAVE NO NEED TO CHANGE. So the solutions are that a man will change when you stop functioning FOR HIM. It is only through working on yourself that you can begin to enhance your connectedness to others.

IF you want change then this is a perfect book for basic understanding.
If you feel “Stuck” in a relationship this book is one that will help you get “Unstuck.” The challenge of change is greatest when a relationship becomes a sourced of negative energy and frustration and our attempts to fix things only Lead to more of the same.
What was something I have learned by reading this book? In order to help change someone be less flexible to their demands. In other words, if you are always catering to your child, your spouse, STOP doing it. This creates change in them automatically. What a great concept.

I would recommend this book to anyone who has difficulty in their relationships, with intimacy or if you just want to learn how to not change others but change yourself.

The Million Dollar treasure Box Philosophy by Sri Vishwanath

The Million Dollar treasure Box Philosophy by Sri Vishwanath

This book is what brought Sri’s life into a clarity that he wanted to share with you as his personal story.

He would put 20 Indian rupees, which equals 1.00 in USA Dollars into a Box,  every morning.  He learned this by a friend whom taught him Feng Shui techniques.  Once he showed his family how he gained 365.00 dollars in one full year everyone including his family was amazed.   His family would add money all the time.  He heard from God’s voice:

“Vish the reason you were given an empty treasure box is because I wanted to compare your personality to the treasure box. Right now you are a treasure….(you have to read the book, it will grab you like a claw)!

I loved this book and hope you want to read it as it adds value to your personality, money to help others and inspiration from a man whom has written over 13 transformation books.
