Claude Bristol an author and journalist wrote a highly acclaimed book The Magic of Believing and I would like to discuss a thing or to about this here.
Last week I discussed this book with a friend over the mobile phone. We both went through it, studied it and came to the conclusion, yes it is a still a great book. Now the fact that I am discussing this early last week confirms my belief that my venture capital friend is right in saying 'Robert don't become a scatter brain'.
Interestingly a few days later a created a culinary delight that turned out to be a digestive dilemma, my hope is that this post will restore the playing field a bit. In this post you can find out the background that led to reading this book, an explanation of why we chose chapter six to introduce you to the author and some further insights to de-clutter and extend the possibilities of the program The Magic of Believing.
The above image is from a collection of photographs on the internet one website was about cats and the other was about dinner jackets. In chapter six of Claude's book he tells a story about how he seen a succesful business entrepreneur way back in the 1930's sober up at a dinner presentation by using the mirror technique.
The mirror technique is basically affirmations you tell yourself, that you recognise and resonate with changes your composure makes, your body kinetics change and fixes your brain; so your ready to do what you needs to be done, hence if this then that.
I do not always use this principle but all we all know of it right? My earlier excuse was because I have not been getting out much and had a problem in bathroom which meant no light shone there, so I have not looked in the mirror much recently, up until a couple of days ago when I decided to get out the screw driver and fix the bathroom light cord.
So if first you cannot succeed then try and try again, a lot of people say never give up, so lets take a look at that linguistically. In-fact lets change that to I will give until I succeed. Now I do not want to give too much away about this book by Claude because I want you to read it.
At first it may seem a taboo subject the magic of believing but trust me it is not. Like Napoleon Hill and the Rockefeller's it comes with christian caveats, so you really do not have to worry about am I ready or will it go wrong or what is the long-term benefits and spin of's from these things.
Chapter six show the effects to be instantaneous by example, granted the story is second-hand (as most good stories are) and Claude Bristol died a few years after publishing this book, yet please do not let this take away the essence of what content is here, it's a really good lesson and it gets my approval.

Well if you are researching or practising the secret, or listening to the Abrahams this might be for you. You maybe from the Napoleon Hill think and grow rich mastermind Facebook groups or your a member/affiliate of the GIN website. Perhaps your just randomly browsing the Internet traffic searching looking for something to enrich your day.
