With the slogan … No matter what you do… Do it with your heart. This book states it’s beginning … Inside every successful person is a heart that won’t surrender. And ends with the inspirational quotation… “A thankful heart attracts miracle.”
From an apocalyptic position, the author states his journey towards his personal success … An emerge of a motivational speaker, a writer who found the simplest, fastest, and easiest solution to all of the mental blocks. He shows us how self-management is the key factor to achieve success. He writes about Energies… How to fit the energies into the model he had been working with throughout the years to help his clients enjoy greater success in the fastest, easiest, and simplest way. He ensures that One doesn’t exclude the other… One’s energies, thoughts, and behaviors are connected. He asks the readers to listen to their hearts. In his words… “Your energies, thoughts, and actions are connected. Therefore, it is not a question of “either-or.” It is “both-and”. Regardless of whether you just let things happen, or if you consciously used your energies, thoughts, and actions, so they work either for you or against you. The only requirement is to be open to the thinking and the strategies that make it possible. Even if you don’t believe you can change your thoughts to make it easier for you to make decisions and do the things you decide to do, you still have thoughts.
Following your heart is a combination of both common sense and emotion. It requires you to turn down the logic and turn up your creativity, so you start to see results faster than what you may think possible right now. The word faster has a new definition it doesn’t mean that you can do it in five minutes. It means that you don’t need to spend months and years before you can do it. The author has seen people who started following their hearts after 20 minutes, while some take one and a half years time before ending up doing it. That’s why this book is subtitled “The Journey”.
It is the seven very specific steps that bring you into contact with yourself, your heart, your intuition, and the world around you. There are six things that have most significance for your success…
Your body, your mind, your intuition, your heart, your soul, your energies.
When you let go of a lot of the rules that govern your life, it becomes easier to notice what’s going on on and around you. When you do this, it often becomes obvious what to do and how to do the things that make you follow your heart.
Your intuition is the internal guidance system of the soul, which is connected to the universe. Your heart is often associated with life and love. The more we follow our hearts, the more we feel important and alive. The heart is the source of human lives itself. There is the order that is very important … Heart, Intuition, Common sense.
This book narrates how your soul holds your entire willpower.
The most important thing when it comes to energies is starting from within and working your way out in this order… your energies… your thoughts… the world around you.
The challenge for a lot of people is running so much of their lives on autopilot that they have completely forgotten who they are or what is truly important to them. They are trying, hoping, dreaming, and wishing, while living from day to day without thinking about the fact that their dissatisfaction, stress, frustrations, depressions, or lack of courage or meaning in life may be due to not listening to themselves.
Follow your heart. It knows the answer long before you do.
To listen to the heart the author describes 7 steps.
Step 1. Change. Take control of your thoughts and change them… It is a matter of changing your energies, your thoughts, and your behavior ( in that order ). Where to focus your efforts obviously depends on your starting point.
Step 2. Listen. When you listen to your heart, you get all the answers you need.
Step 3. Sense. Use your senses. So you recognize what’s happening around you.
Step 4. Connect. Connect with your soul and show the world who you really are.
Step 5. Decide. The best decisions are those that come from your heart.
Step 6. Deal. It is the way you set your sails that determines how you get through unknown waters.
Step 7. Lead. When you follow your heart, you inspire others to do the same.
The author has mastered the topics to guide your logic in the things you experience.
Everything has a consequence. No matter what you do, do it with your heart. The price of not following your heart is spending the rest of your life wishing you had.
