Book Review: I would, but my DAMN MIND won’t let Me! by Jacqui Letran
I would, but my DAMN MIND won’t let me! by Jacqui Letran, is a brilliant piece of work, a simple, provocative and insightful education on the mind, how it works and how it affects our lives. Don’t let the title fool you, this is a serious and well-developed presentation, providing an understanding of the principles of the mind, and how our subconscious mind records our own beliefs, usually formed at a young age, and how these beliefs about ourselves and the world, can come back to haunt us in ways we could never have known. This is not a book just for those who have had traumas or bad experiences in their childhood or teens. As Letran so effectively shows, we all experience things in our lives and those experiences result in decisions, rightly or wrongly, about ourselves and others. Such hidden, but powerful life-changing thoughts, such as, “I am bad,” or “Something is wrong with me,” or “No one likes me,” or “I can never be happy in life,” have their roots in events which occurred in our lives, early on, and which the author shows can be brought to the surface and by doing so, put one in a position to change one’s entire outlook about life, happiness and success. The book also provides some actual case histories which further illuminate the principles offered in the first part of the book. Not only an excellent read, but a necessary one for anyone who feels they could do with a better grip on their lives, or for that matter, a better understanding of what might be affecting people or family or kids in one’s immediate circle. Give this book to your teenager to read – it will help them. Five stars is our rating.
