A certified DreamBuilder® coach, George Goh distills his training and coaching practice into Your Thoughts Matter, a book about how empowering thoughts can co-create the life readers desire.
The foundation of his program is what he calls “the universal law of thinking,” more universally known as the Law of Attraction: “You attract to you and become what you predominantly think about most of the time.” By envisioning good health, financial success, satisfying relationships, or any other goal in detail and consistently thinking it’s not only possible but destined to be (with the help of the Universe), it will manifest in readers’ lives. He calls this a “vision-driven life,” rather than “a condition-based life,” or “a life by default.”
Goh provides direction in setting goals, suggesting readers list their desires and dissatisfactions in four key areas: health and well-being, relationships, “time and money freedom,” and career. He explains how to craft a vision statement and encourages attitudes of gratitude, forgiveness, and deservingness. He also acknowledges that this transformation requires a paradigm shift, a willingness to challenge what may be a long-established mentality of unworthiness. Each chapter ends with “Your Gold Nuggets,” easily digestible summations of its key principles.
The Law of Attraction is not a new concept. It’s been offered to the masses ever since Norman Vincent Peale’s bestseller The Power of Positive Thinking in 1952. Goh relies much too heavily on quotations from experts on the subject, sometimes repeating them within the space of one paragraph. This repetitiveness carries over into his writing, a practice he says is intentional, in order to help readers learn. However, the Gold Nuggets do that job better, and the text would benefit from a solid trimming.
Those familiar with the Law of Attraction won’t find much that’s fresh in these pages. But for anyone new to this concept, Your Thoughts Matter is a worthwhile, elementary introduction to the mind’s power, offering simple exercises to access its benefits.
