From the Inside Flap
What are you thinking about?
Research indicates that the average person thinks approximately 50,000 thoughts per day. Each thought moves you either toward your God-given potential or away.
Unfortunately, we live in a society bent on nursing old wounds and highlighting what is wrong with just about everything. As a result, we have grown accustomed to viewing the world, our lives, and ourselves through a lens of negativity-and that negativity stands in direct contrast to the passionate, purpose-filled people God wants us to be.
In Philippians 4:8, the apostle Paul challenges us to seek out and dwell on the positives in our lives. When used as a filter, this New Testament verse is the "true secret" to vibrant health, satisfying relationships, and lasting fulfillment.
Whether you are at a low point or a high point in your life, "The 4:8 Principle" can help you experience joy by design-"God's design." You'll quickly discover life as it was meant to be!
Unleash the power of the 4:8 Principle today!
It really is the secret to a joy-filled life!
From the Back Cover

I'm a firm believer in the Law of Attraction, and that what you think on the inside is revealed on the outside. However, this book takes me way beyond that, because the guidance provided by the 48 principle makes it clear that I need to choose the right things to think about.
Just this morning I wrote out these affirmations based on the 4:8 principle:
** I am living the life God intended for me
** I have a clear compelling vision of the future
** I am meditating and investing time alone with God each day
** I have people who hold me accountable to my best
** I consistently make choices for health producing foods and drink
** I exercise in some way every day
** I get sufficient sleep most nights
** I have 3 close personal encounters each day
** I have 'extra time' built into my schedule to have a margin of safety
** I am focused on progress rather than perfection
One of the things that I particularly enjoy is that the strategies Tommy recommends are practical. Although I know that following them will take some discipline, I believe they are already paying off.
I interviewed Tommy on Inside Success Radio for three reasons: 1) I believe that speaking with an author is the best way to know a book is genuine, 2) it gives the author an opportunity to summarize the main points, which creates a type of "Readers Digest" version of the book, and 3) during an interview you often get additional "golden nuggets" that aren't found in the book.
During the radio interview I asked Tommy about what he calls RATs, (Really Awful Thoughts) and I'd like to share a little of his response.
"Really awful thoughts, or RATs, take you down a path you don't want to go. Yet for most of us, heading down the wrong path doesn't happen dramatically. It happens subtly and as a result, we don't do anything about it. Thankfully, getting rid of your RATs is made easier by using the 4:8 principle. By choosing to ask yourself the right questions, you can choose to think on what is lovely, pure, gracious, and worthy of being called excellent to judge what is best for you to think and say"

I usually try to identify the type person who might NOT enjoy reading this book. This book is probably not for people who are offended by talking about God (yes, believe it or not, there are some out there.) Since you're reading this review, that probably isn't you.
The rating I give books is based on a combination of how much I believe a proactive person might enjoy reading them and how much they might help you to be a more proactive person.
This book easily earns 5 stars...and I recommend it to you with no reservation.
