Boost Your Potential Through This Inspiring Book Aug 22, 2008
Are you ready for some lessons in uniting body, mind and spirit? Are you having issues finding the life you want to live? Are weight issues, depression and/or anxiety problems keeping you from living the life of your dreams? Your Highest Potential, by Annette Colby, PhD, is an inspiring read. I wept when I read in her introduction her description of the little girl she was - as I related so closely with her description.
I've learned some good things from this book. It's positive nature and "you can do it" message will be helpful for anyone, but is especially good for those who need a boost toward having a stronger self image.
Your Highest Potential, as well as a lot of other good information, is available from Dr Colby's site at www.annettecolby.com. Give Annette a visit and see what she has to offer.

A new take on JOY Jul 1, 2008
I'll admit it: I'm an avid reader of self-help books of the spiritual sort, but that doesn't mean I read everything that comes down the pike. For me to endorse a book on this site, it has to resonate as truth and create those delightful "ah-ha!" moments that have me underlining and dog-earring 'til kingdom come.
Annette Colby's "Your Highest Potential" is just such a book. With clear, concise and exquisite prose, Colby introduces truly fresh ideas into the overcrowded field of tomes that promise to change your life for the better after just one read.
What's most memorable about "Your Highest Potential" is Colby's take on the ingrained belief systems we learn in childhood, and how they can continue to control us if we don't make a concerted effort to see them for what they are: either "truths" that were never true in the first place, or truths that are too outdated to be of any use to us anymore.
What she suggests to break these thoughts is a leap of faith of sorts--to stop focusing on the negative past and instead fantasize a joyous future, believing that what we give energy to is what we will manifest.
While other authors have had similar insights, Colby goes so far to say that once patients in therapy have uncovered the painful truths of their past and gain insight into their own unconscious behavior, at some point they must walk away from that process and start an entirely different journey. Despite what some believe, continuing to rehash childhood traumas will not make them go away, according to Colby, nor will it reveal a wealth of joy at the bottom of it all.
What *will* manifest joy, she says, will be the envisioning of it, which is actually a joy unto itself.
In this way, Colby's ideas are truly fresh. While she fully acknowledges that a life worth living takes work, she also offers a promise of relief when we stop fighting everything so hard.
In short, she really does offer a unique path to discover your highest potential. Enjoy!
