Overall I personally really enjoyed reading this as I was intrigued of how the mind can change your whole life. I found it very helpful as I have gone through a very hard time in life and this book has changed the way I think about things and it’s made me more confident and eager to concur life. Its made me look at life differently and it’s truely inspiring and I highly recommend this book to people that let other peoples opinions rule there life. I have always, since day one of being alive have let others peoples opinions and voices overrule mine, this is because I was so shy and was too scared to stick up for myself and my own voice. As the years went on and I got older it got even harder for me, by moving half way around the world and starting a new school, I couldn’t even talk for myself. I was always to scared to be proven wrong or shut down. I always found this very hard to live and have these dreams I had for myself when I would be told things like “that is way to hard” or “you wouldn’t be able to have the patients for that” … I always wanted to be a fashion designer until I let these peoples opinions overrule mine. I am so glad the day has came where my Mother has gotten me into reading these types of books or at least encouraging me to and it has truely changed me and it makes me feel like i do have a purpose and that I am there only me and no ones thoughts are greater than mine because I am my own me. its crazy that we are getting brought up more and more with the louder more opinionated kids ruling the quieter ones. It’s until the point when you realise you are the greatest you, you get discouraged and doubted about your goals. Therefore the earlier people learn to kick everyone else’s negative opinions to the curb and to follow your dreams and goals, the happier and well minded people will be.
