A Spiritual Road Map

Food for thought: Everyone has problems and issues they need to work through, and nobody is immune. It reminds me of the quote from Plato:
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
There are successful people who will settle for nothing short of success. When they fail - they work and they plan and they overcome.
Money cannot bring you happiness, but it can provide you with things that you can enjoy and can provide you with the opportunity to share abundantly wit
I don't think you will find any startling revelations in this free/low cost offering in e-book format but you will find some very useful reminders. For those of you that are uncomfortable with 'new age" religion I think you will still find the suggestions helpful. New age or Eastern beliefs are not critical to what the author has to share with us as the suggestions transcend those beliefs, I tend to think of them as helpful reminders and I found myself highlighting some of her suggestions. This ...more

A very good book. Explains how the spiritual laws and your life should go hand in hand. Very interesting and easy to read and understand.
Written simply and easy to read, yet a profound guide to happiness and spiritual fulfillment.
Good advice. Now to implement it is the tough part :)

After reading this one, I felt like everything is so simple. It made me realize a lot of things about how one's life should be lived. The tips are practical and useful unlike other self help books which offer tips that are hard to attain.

This book served as a simple reminder, of things most of the time I miss out on, I took for granted or I failed to recognize. This book encourages you to reach for your dreams. I know it's cliche but with this book, it feels like ev

I enjoyed this book. Even though it was short, it had a lot of helpful advice. Most of the things were already well-known. However, some information was brought about in an original manner.
It was well-written and helpful.

Happiness can lead to Success

I read this book with the sincere hope of better understanding the correlation between happiness and success. To some extent the author accomplished this objective with both insight and intuitive clarity. I did however, find myself drifting thoughtlessly at times, from dialect similar to previous renditions of this topic. I would recommend this book as a primary source of comprehending the concepts that intertwine the topic and the factors that influence their relati
I try to think of myself as less religious and more spiritual as I grow in my faith and walk with Christ. For me though, "spiritual" does mean related to faith in God (even if your view of God may be a bit different than mine). Therefore, when I read the title of this book (a freebie through Amazon) and looked at the chapters and the fact that each one was titled as a "spiritual rule", I really and truly thought this would be based on Scripture. As my husband pointed out to me when I complained ...more
No revelations here

This book is more of a reminder than a guide. Some helpful not so preachy platitudes can be found in its pages, as well as some exercises to reinforce positivity---but nothing earth shattering. I normally give 3 stars for an average book, but I give this one two due to the overuse of exclamation points (You too can be happy! It's a choice! Choose happy! ) and for the bad advice of boycotting the news...To me, willful ignorance does not equal happy.

Insightful book

This book rely opened my eyes about happiness. So many of the points made in this book were how I viewed happiness, but after reading it I see how of based my view of happiness was. Now I am going to be more focused on seeing happiness in everything and so living in a poverty mind set.

"Things will never change if you never plan on changing them. Change requires action, action requires a plan, planning requires thought, and thought changes everything..."

This book is an excellent tool to be use daily as a reminder to keep moving... forward!
Nice reminders (reminder for me, anyway) how to deal with negativity, love, choices...LIFE. Puts in perspective how to enjoy all of what life offers with a different attitude and mind set. Change your though patterns and you will change your outcomes.
preachy and uninspiring. I'm glad this was a free download. It states very obvios factors for a supposedly happier life. Also I'm fairly certain no one check this book for grammar.
A simple yet important reminder of what's important in life. Incredibly logical and practical (perhaps more so than 'spiritual') and beneficial to how we live life!
Very good read

I really enjoyed this book immensely. I learned a lot and I will be practicing these spiritual laws to the best of my ability.
It's informative and to the point. I learned a few new things. I love that at the end it has a list (appendix) of the 21 rules to happiness.
A quick but good read. A simple reminder of the lessons to bringing about your own happiness.
Tom Hinkle
A simple to read book that has many good suggestions for improving a person's happiness.
Josh Solar
A simple book full of good reminders for a fulfilled life.

I really enjoyed this book and I strongly recomend it.
It has great reflections and insights.
The advice are good although there are often no solutions provided: "just do it!". I think it was in chapter one where addiction was mentioned. Addiction usually have powerful psychological barriers to overcome in order to stop. Just saying not to do it is not that helpful.

Also she seems to be very goal-oriented, personally I prefer to live by values rather than goals.

Still I think it was decent, and there was several things in I had had to think about. Add to that the fact that I got the Kindle

No new ideas
I enjoyed this little inspirational book. Jennifer O'Neill provides 21 rules to live by - in the pursuit of a happy life.
Maria Miaoulis
In this quick and straightforward read, Jennifer O'Neill gives us a no-nonsense list of rules to start living the life we've always envisioned. There's nothing complicated here, it's just up to the reader to actually get the ball rolling.

Easy read

simple rules, simply written with profound meaning. I'm sure I will read it more than once. I would recommend it.
The content of this book was good, and there was not much repetition. It was a short book and easy to read. However, I was surprised at the number of typos included in such a short book.
Skyla Madi
A very helpful, very insightful read. Jennifer O'niell has definitely hit the mark with this one and the cover is absolutely stunning.

Well written. A lot of it is information you can get from any number of sources, but put together in a way I hadn't seen before.
I assumed it was a Christian based book but it was not. Was an ok read with good ideas, but I prefer Biblical based references.
