Secrets of Mind Power by Harry Lorayne
Jaico Publishing House
Review by Ashok Jainani
You live the way you think. Organised thinking means controlling thoughts and reactions properly in solving problems in the most efficient manner possible at the time. The way you think is the way you live. Your mind is the ruler of your life – so why not train it to the best of your ability? Your way of thinking, your outlook on life, can overcome any obstacle that possibly presents itself.
If you are in business, or just starting one, you might as well be prepared for, not necessarily enemies, but certainly competition. Be happy for it! Without competition, it wouldn’t be much fun trying to reach success. It’s difficult to start at the top in any job or business, unless that job is digging a hole. So stop blaming your enemies. As a matter of fact, they usually help you! Edmund Burke wrote: “He that wrestles with us strengthens our nerves and sharpens our skill. Our antagonist is our helper.”
“The book enlightens to use your mind to its fullest capacity. Learn the art of effective thinking, strengthen your will power and achieve success.”
The book offers, in very easy and doable way, by memory training expert Harry Lorayne, a 24-point programme on how to turn ambitions into realities by using proven methods for tapping into hidden mental powers that anyone can learn to improve concentration, use mind power in business, make money decisions, and more. We are reminded the one superiority that man has over other animals is the ability to think. Too many people, however, give no time or practice to it. The book enlightens in many ways and introduces the reader to the personal techniques and methods of a professional to use your mind to its fullest capacity.
The author’s approach focuses on engaging parts of the human brain which are not normally involved when someone is just reading or repeating something. There are three of these things – Repetition, Value and Context – which enable brain for achieving maximum efficiency in tasks assigned to it
