The author, Magnus Steel, presents 15 ways of thinking or “mindset tweaks” that will unleash your full potential today, and allow you to be a success by making the most of your talent. Perception is everything. To a large extent, what you perceive is what you get. Psychologists have determined that what you perceive is what you believe, so your thoughts determine what you actually see. Often, these beliefs are subconscious, gained during childhood and early life, and these beliefs can hold you back, meaning there’s less chance of you reaching your full potential. However, these beliefs can be altered, and you can change your perception, allowing you to be unencumbered by these often-negative ways of looking at things.
The key to the success is to know what you want and how to attain it. Success also does not come through hard to master skills or esoteric knowledge, but through getting the basics right and following through again and again. You must be clear and definite about what you want. This shows us that the most important thing about our quest for success are our emotions and our mindset. It is these things that cause us to be successful, or prevent us from realizing what we can be. This is absolutely key. Success is not just about what you do. It is about what you think. This is why these key mindset shifts can be so powerful and effective.

If you want to actually be more confident, not just look like you are, this book will give you 7 solid strategies that you can put into effect right now, that will help you take charge of your confidence in a way that puts you in control. If you take this seriously, your confidence can only improve. If you embrace these strategies daily, your confidence is unlimited.

In this book, the author claims the law of attraction works. There is no question about that. It is a universal principle. When applied properly it has an obligation to work its magic. It has no choice. It doesn’t matter how old you are, whether you are male or female, a good person or a bad person. The law of attraction is as real and as definite as the law of gravity. If you apply the law of attraction, you will attract what you desire most. It’s that simple.
The author, Darren Burton, doesn’t proclaim to be an expert at applying this fabulous law. He’s human, he says, does the best he can every day, and sometimes he falters. But, he’s seen this law work positively in his own life on many occasions.
This book is a logical and practical guide of learning how to effectively apply this wonderful law so you can attract true and infinite abundance and wealth into your life. In reality, the law of attraction really isn’t very complex and doesn’t take volumes of books to explain and learn how to apply it. This book is not a spiritual kind of manifestation text, although it touches on the spiritual from time to time. This book is about attracting more wealth into your life, and what you learn within these pages can just as easily be applied to attracting anything you want – whether it be a loving partner, peace of mind, happiness, better friendships, or you name it!
This book offers inspirational writing and positive affirmations to reprogram your subconscious, and help you to manifest the life you dream of. Each chapter provides 10-20 affirmations covering specific areas, along with tips and advice on how to effectively make these affirmations work for you.
Affirmations are so simple, yet many never experience their power. Our subconscious minds account for the majority of our behavior, affect our perceptions and determine our actions. These affirmations will transform your subconscious so that you naturally begin to think and act in ways that manifest enormous success and wealth.
