Seven Simple Steps to Better Living
"Everything should be made as simple as possible,
but not simpler."
- Albert Einstein
In today's fast-paced world, we all tend to look for quick fixes or at least some sort of shortcut to improve our lives--easier ways to prepare meals, feed the family dog, get chores done more efficiently, or give us an instantly beautiful body. We want instant gratification, instant success, and instant happiness. Most reasonably intelligent people know that very rarely do the things for which we long happen instantly, but we still look for those shortcuts as often as we can.
How many times have you thought about picking up a self-help book, tape or video that you believed might give you some excellent pointers for improving your life? You put it off, however, just because you felt there wasn't enough time to follow the "procedures" that were probably outlined in the source? Too often most of us dismiss helpful sources because we don't think we have the time to devote to a lengthy method for improving some aspect of our life. We think to ourselves "eventually I'll get around to it" but "eventually" just never comes, and so we continue day after day living with the same old difficulties and issues. Occasionally we add new problems to the mix, and less occasionally we manage to resolve one or two.
We've been told that we "grow out of" many difficulties, and we're usually surprised when one day we become aware that a particular problem has just disappeared, leaving us happy that it is gone but wondering how it managed to go away, wanting to know how to "disappear" other undesirable issues in the same way.
This little book is designed to help you do just that. Direct experience from years of observation and study, stumbling, mistakes, and more study are the teachers which guide this writing. With the seven steps listed and discussed here, very little of your time will be taken up in either reading, understanding or implementing them. Following the ideas presented also takes very little effort on your part, although there will be times when you think that a huge effort is indeed required. It is what you'll think, not what is necessarily fact.
Sounds too easy, doesn't it? And yet, if you put these ideas into definite action, you'll be pleasantly surprised at the gradual changes for the better which begin occurring in your life, both in your physical body as well as your outer circumstances. No specific goals are required, although you may have certain goals in mind as you read the steps. They are presented as things you can do easily each and every day, and since you whole life is made up of many days, many hours, many moments, the effect is cumulative over time. The most pleasant part is that sometimes the effect is almost immediate.
These ideas have been around for a very long time and have certainly been expounded upon through the ages in various sources, although most folks don't have, or take, the time to search for them. There have been many great men and women throughout history who have, by truly excellent reasoning, inspiration and action, proven that these ideas do work.
The intention here is to give you, the reader, a short, easy-to-understand way to implement the fundamentals of those wonderful truths for improving your life in today's frantic world. We all want to be healthier, happier and more successful, so here's your chance to learn quickly how to begin that process.
