Liked the 30 day trial concept. Easy but effective.
Grew up very purposeful, taking full responsibility for my actions and fate. Did college, military, marriage, divorce, and disability. That's all a long time ago. I've even broken a few hearts, and made and lost a few fortunes since.
I don't know exactly what I was hoping for out of the book, but I was hoping. Guess that's just good marketing.
The life I have led has taken all of the 'want' from me. I don't have aspirations or dreams any longer. I don't covet. I don't get horny. I don't get lonely. I don't miss people, places, or things. I don't even get hungry. Literally, I want nothing. My days could be spent lying in bed staring at ceiling tile, and they would be no different.
I was hoping to get the want back in life. Instead I learned I'm a mooch.
In my opinion this is not a 2 day book
Its not a novel. It takes time to try and experiment with all thats written there. Im rereading it now. I find it very valuable. I read a few pages a day
