I have never, ever thought of myself as someone who gives up - however recently I smashed hard into two brick walls , where I was desperate to walk away, - it was an extraordinary experience . I seemed to have lost all confidence in my capacity to learn a new skill . Elisabeth Wilson's book helped me very much to reframe and question my negative thoughts and beliefs : as she says , "ask yourself is this thought moving me towards a positive or negative action ?" Sure , you may have heard that advice hundreds of times, but this book delivers it powerfully and creatively- even shockingly at times. A straight talking book , it does not pull punches, and had me leaping high, soaring over those walls !
