8 to Great, revised!
This groundbreaking and positively practical text offers a simple, yet powerful, 8-step process for taking charge of our lives and achieving our dreams. It revolves around author MK Mueller's unique formula for Positive Attitude.
Everyone says that positive attitude is everything for achieving greater happiness, health and success, yet no one, until now, has given the world a formula that is simple enough to remember and therefore use on a daily basis.
One of Mueller's gifts in this text is such a formula: FGH - Forgiveness of the past, Gratitude for the present and Hope for the future. The remaining five High-Ways address the most common stumbling blocks to using FGH:
High-Way 1: Get the Picture. It reminds us how to clearly see our dreams happening and "think it till we feel it."
High-Way 2: Risk. Once the picture is clear, we must "run to, not from" and face our fears in order to move forward.
High-Way 3: Full Responsibility. Rather than a burden, this is the key to freedom as we discover that we are the only problem we have and therefore, we are the solution.
High-Way 4: Feel All Your Feelings. For those suffering with depression or rage, this chapter unfolds amazing insights into how Mad and Sad balance each other.
High-Way 5:Honest Communication. When you're ready to stop getting defensive in arguments and be done with triangulation in the workplace, Mueller shows the way with down-to-earth examples of her clients' success stories.
The result of these High-Ways is a step-by-step process that helps young and old find greater happiness and success. The fact that Mueller has also created a widely- used curriculum for high schools based on her material is testimony to the fact that her methods are simple without being sugar-coated and powerful without being pompous.
8 to Great takes the reader from wherever they are in life and springboards them into a new level of well-being and joy. Whether for yourself or someone you love, it is an investment that is sure to bless and bliss your world.
