Think this, not that Just as a healthy body produces energy, a healthy mind produces joy. This is not an accident! If you want to experience vibrant health and abundant energy, you need to eat certain foods while refraining from others. Likewise, if you want to experience abundant joy, you need to change your mental diet. Simply put, you have to think this, not that. And with God’s help, you can.
This book is not about thinking the way most people think. It is about thinking the way few people think!

My friend and I can not afford a personal life coach, but this book is like the second best thing. We are doing our study of it over the internet by e-mail since we live across country from each other. I do hope many others will benefit from this book because we all need to see the joy God has given to each of our lives. What better time than now to recognize and take hold of it?
