VERDICT:

REVIEW:

This book was a breath of fresh air. The chapters were full of positivity and suggestions on how to get more out of life. I wanted to find a self-help book that I could reference and think deeply about, and this was it. It is geared towards black women, but has great tools that everyone can apply. Between life lessons, the author includes relate-able stories about women struggling to find joy through different circumstances and stages of their lives. The stories kept my interest and illustrated the real world applications of the principles described.
The Four Laws of Attention
1)We are what we give our attention to
2)What we give our attention to becomes real for us
3)What we give our attention to grows
4) What we find in the world reflects our self concept
I read self-help books to find out  how I can continue to grow and challenge myself to push forward. Theses 101 sacred power principles gave a plethora of guidance on how to be more spiritual and suggestions to take time out to recognize who you are as a whole person. There are positive quotes and further book recommendations galore. The author is heavy handed with referencing other people's books and suggestions, which came off as filler. However I was still pleasantly surprised with how much was included that I could apply to my life.
"You don't want to over identify with your strength or your weaknesses because they are only aspects of what makes you You. They are not the essence of what makes you You."
The biggest lesson I learned while reading is to give yourself enough space, forgiveness and time to process the world around you. The sections on spirituality were great because they didn't advance one belief system over another. There are also sections that encourage the reader to find people to learn and commune with. Building a supportive community around you is one of the best gifts you can give  yourself. While this book was published seventeen years ago, nothing felt dated or out of touch with the times. I would recommend this to everyone who wants concrete suggestions to progress in their personal and professional lives.
