The Magic of Thinking Big by David Schwartz, Ph.D.

What I like best:  This book was first published in 1959 and has since sold over 6 million copies - wow!  I really enjoy reading non-fiction classics in general.  It interests me to see how many of the concepts are still relevant today - almost all of them, all the time!  In fact, I often think most ideas are presented in a simpler and more actionable form.  This book follows suit.  

In many ways it represents a lot of the work I am choosing to engage in today which was very inspiring.  Perhaps my favorite section from the book are the tips Dr. Schwartz gives on how to cure ourselves from the many forms of "Excusitis - The Failure Disease" - age, intelligence, health, and bad luck.  So true and so funny at the same time, ha.

Schwartz suggests, "When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to a solution."  He teaches us actionable concepts on how to get the action habit, make attitudes your allies, turn victory into defeat, and of course THINK BIG.  Pick this one up. As always let me know what you think!

Best Quote:  "The mind is what the mind is fed."
