The main thesis of the book, in its author’s words is: “We become what we feed the brain.” Although neither this author nor anyone else can provide absolute evidence that most behaviors are determined by the unconscious mind, the book concentrates on the input as to what we expose ourselves to, our emotions and thoughts, experiences, decisions, and actions and their results, as all those things have an effect on our neural networks.
The author then delves into the subconscious, its protection programs, the language our brains respond to, and information like that in detail by separating each issue into parts he calls programs.
Later on, he deals with the optimization of the physical brain, neurogenesis, etc. His mention of the Almighty Syndrome made me smile because I have noticed that it exists. Plus, he recommends a few other things such as journaling and other exercises, which might be useful for even the sanest person alive.
Also, consciousness, self-responsibility, free-will, self-motivation, self-reliance, ethics, and morals are looked into, in detail. I can’t possibly describe the book in its entirety as if giving a summary for a fictional plot. One has to read it to get something from it.
The language used is clear and direct and in no way, is it difficult, high-brow, or boring. Anyone can read it and use the information in it.
My only regret is that this book wasn’t around when I was raising my children. I could have taught them so many things to help with their lives.
The content is clear, easy to understand and adaptable to everyday life. After just a few days, I experienced tremendous results with the techniques. After a few weeks of using the first golden keys explained in the book, I have reduced my stress levels and fatigue. I have also gained more clarity about what I really want and how I can bring this to life.
I love the way the spiritual part of the book is integrated to what you can do in everyday life, and I was able to get a much better understanding of these complex topics. I want to take myself beyond what I think is possible, and this book offers great guidance for that path.
Do you want a book that makes a huge impact with the necessary tools to get you out of a stuck state? Then this one is for you!
has become clear to me that antidepressants have only a very limited – but
historically overrated – role in true healing. If you do not change, your world will not
Author Paul E. Wanvig has condensed his hard-earned experience into seven Golden
keys. For me, that provides a practical model for self-improvement and a better life.
The author has been walking the path of pain, acquiring illnesses, sometimes on the
brink of death, and each time bouncing back with unique solutions. Over and over.
The experience is condensed in what he calls "Golden keys"; and I find them to be
understandable and actionable.
One example of the practicality of the "Golden key" is #5, “Mastering the Art of
Creating a Strong and Healthy Self-Reliance.” This made me realize that I have been
living my life with the handbrake on. One of my limiting beliefs I had was that self-
confidence is a fixed constant. Now I see that self-confidence is something that can
be developed, and I now have the tools and awareness to do this.
Another example is going on an “information diet.” Hard at first, but now I have much
more quality time on my hands. More importantly, it seems to be my true self that
sets the agenda, not whatever is out there, such as the agenda of the news provider
or whims of the political system, the sports or whatever is grasping for attention at
the moment. Now I aspire to living my own agenda, not everybody else's. In
hindsight, that seems obvious to me, but had that not been pointed out to me in this
book, I would not have tested this out. Some may think this is ignorance, but my
experience is that important things will find their way to my attention anyway. I now
have a higher-level view of the news-picture.
I give this book a five star review, because in my opinion it is a must-read. I do
confess that I have read a huge stack of self-development books – all the classics.
They have all inspired me, but I do believe this book provides a unique approach, not
shying away but also bringing ancient wisdom into the mix. Some sort of stigma has
been attached to ancient wisdom in our Western world. It seems that science and
ancient wisdom are closing in, and for the first time, all the components in that
formula have been brought together so well.
