Amazingly Accurate, But What Now ?
, 1 Feb. 2010
This review is from: The Life You Were Born to Live: Finding Your Life Purpose (Paperback)
I bought this book after minutes of flicking through it in a book store. It was exactly what I was looking for at that point in my life. I even paid full price for it which is something I never do with books, but I had to have it, now !!!
I did the numerology thing, bearing in mind I know about the concepts of numerology but have always thought it was a load of crud, until I read this book. What is said about me was so accurate it was scary !! It had me down to a 't' including pointing some things out to me which I was ignoring about myself.
The next step then is to learn your lessons which are laid out in the book. Unfortunately I found the lessons just the same as in any other self help book. And having the low attention span that I do, I gave up very quick. I expected this book to show me how to solve my life issues. But being the number I am, I was warned by the book that I expect all my answers outside of myself, chasing each teacher rather than believing I already know the solutions. So part of the time at work I try to remember to ask myself; "What if I knew the answer already?", and I'm impressed that I come up with a creative solution to problems. So the book did help me there. I just wish the lessons would have been more exciting rather than the same drone in every other self help book. I think the author should do number workshops, a workshop only for 7's for example.
All-in-all, this is great to learn something new about yourself. I just wish I could have gone further after the initial "wow".
