I read a lot of self-improvement books - have done so since I was a teenager. Most of them are a waste of time, but every so often one comes along with a few practical suggestions and life gets easier for a bit.
Then comes something like this. No suggestions, no programs, no steps. And yet I think this one is the real thing.
I've known about Syd Banks and the Three Principles for almost 20 years, but I never quite "got it." Michael Neill explains the concept so clearly and with such down to earth examples that "it" comes within reach. Finally.

This book made a huge impact on my life in the best way possible. I can't begin to express my gratitude for the information and the eloquence with which Michael expresses it.

It is the same theory as the excellent Jamie Smart in his audio book Clarity.
Scientists know we create our world instantly using chemicals.
They know that instant thoughts send instant chemical signals to create our instant feelings.
Change bad people or experiences.
We think the bad people or experiences are sending the bad chemical which give us bad feelings.
CORRECT biological sequence:
Thought sends chemical to mind to create feeling.
The thought = the chemical = the feeling.
Bad thoughts send bad chemicals.
Good thoughts send good chemicals.
Think new thought.
New thought = new chemical =new feeling.
It is not the other person who causes the bad chemical going to your mind. It is your bad thought that sends the chemical.
Thought can only send chemicals regarding your instant thought.
Future thoughts will send chemicals in the future.
It is all biology. Nothing more complicated than that.
Humans are very good at dealing with things that actuality happen.
Humans are bad at dealing with past thoughts (ruminating) and future thoughts (worrying).
It makes sense for us not to do what we are bad at (ruminating and worrying), and stick to what we are good at (dealing with things that actually happen).
Good mental hygiene = reduce the amount of bad chemicals being sent.
You are feeing your thinking chemicals not feeling your life.
This book and similar books are correct in what they teach.

Really enjoyed this book. I listen to the audio a few times for all of it to sink in. A lot of great anecdotes from Michael.

I am so glad i found this book. Definitely helping me. it just makes total sense.
I won't butcher it by trying to explain it. It's not a book it's an experience in a book.
