Order Dr. Keith Marshall’s new book, “Factors of Transformation: Be The Change You Want.”
Factors of Transformation: Be The Change You Want does not waste one second expressing poetic fluff many self-help books use to solicit readers. At the onset of his introduction, author Dr. Keith L. Marshall states point blank he wants us to understand the power of our conscious and unconscious thoughts in every dimension of life, be it spiritual, mental, emotional, physical, or social. The idea is to assist those who desire to achieve liberation from negative thinking patterns that yield poor behaviors, to become sensitive to the power of thoughts and become more productive.
Two poignant questions are firmly posed at the beginning of this short but robust read. Why wait to make changes in your life when you are not guaranteed to live another day? Why not be in touch with your mind, body, spirit, and relationships today? If you have not asked yourself these questions and find you are aimless in your pursuit of purpose, it may be time for you to jump off the proverbial hamster wheel and evaluate your current circumstances using the criteria found within the pages of this encouraging resource.
Chapter One, You Are Not Your Body may appear to present a familiar answer to issues associated with low self-esteem. Though a noble gesture, it is not the point. Dr. Marshall serves a platter with spiritual delicacies that help us savor the idea that our dilemma has nothing to do with who we are on the outside, though our behaviors are what we see; it has everything to do with who we are on the inside, these fragile vessels we call “bodies.”
He points toward his Creator with an invitation to connect with Him through prayer and study of scripture, to be thankful every day for the things we at times take for granted.
He reminds us that change comes with a price. It requires action and is not dependent upon how we feel because there will be times giving up seems the most viable option. Consistency is key. The same consistency of action and purpose used when practicing old behaviors that makes one restless, irritable, and discontented (RID) should be implemented when searching for emotional and spiritual healing. The reconciliation and revelation is that we are not our bodies, but a spirit within our body.
The Power of Principles, Uncover and Discover “You”, Forgiveness, Nurture Your Physical Self, Money On Purpose, Don’t Be A Hater, Sweat Sometimes, Don’t Waste Thinking, and Love Yourself, are foundational chapters for transformational thinking. They are laden with healthy principles and insights that keep us from becoming our own worst enemy, reveal areas needing improvement and sounds the clarion call that it is never too late to change the course of our lives and stinking thinking can no longer dominate.
