Jednostavno i jasno, za svaku ženu ponešto! Volim kada u knjizi pronađem nešto za sebe, kada je realna u svojoj pozitivi, kada je ono što prenosi iz iskustva. Jedna od onih knjiga koje te ostavljaju zadovoljnom osobom nakon što ju pročitaš.

„Ako želimo da naše sutra bude pozitivno, tada svoje mišljenje moramo promijeniti danas. Današnje misli stvaraju sutrašnje iskustvo.“

This is very much a guide book to getting a woman moving on her journey. A stepping stone to inspire us to be all we can be. she addresses issues when we are young and as we age. How much control we have over our lives and gives personal examples and great inspiration for change. She even gives the science for the skeptics who need that in order to move on and embrace ourselves.

Some highlights that touched me -

ذات مساء تابعت بث مباشر للدكتور في الاستشارات الزوجية حارث المزيدي وتطرق بالحديث عن تلك السيدة وتجربتها في التشافي من مرض السرطان من دون الخضوع لأي علاج كيميائي مكتفيةً على الإيحاء والنظام الصحي ، قد يحسب البعض الأمر مبالغ فيه ، لكن لو تمعنا لطريقة حياتنا وتفكيرنا سندرك جيداً لماذا لا نتحرك خطوة للأمام ، ولماذا هذا العام يشبه العام الماضي ؟!

هذا يتوقف على ما تحمله من أفكار وتجارب ماضيه وكيف فسرتها فتخزن في عقلك الباطن ليكون تفسيرك لمجريات الحياة مبنيه على تلك الأفكار إن كانت سلبية أم إيجابية ، وه

I love to read positive and inspiring books like this, it helps to keep me focused and headed in the right direction. The main message of this book was to love yourself and love your life. A pretty darn good message I would say! It then goes chapter by chapter in how to do that in all areas of your life. I enjoyed the positive affirmations it lists for you to use and practice (yes it seems a bit silly, but it really does work for me). Some of the chapter focus points drove me nuts (because I fel ...more

Those who follow me here on goodreads will notice soon, if not already, that I'm reading a lot of Louise Hay right now. Partly due to my bulging L5/S1 disc. Do I absolutely believe 100% that all physical illness is caused by mental blockages? In short, no, not all. I do believe that sometimes a physical ailment, is just physical. No matter how positive your thoughts are, living on earth with gravity, etc. is not easy on our bodies. But I also think that a lot of times, a lot more than we in the ...more

This is the first of Louise Hay's books that I have read. (Her work was recommended to me by a fellow person who is interested in alternative medicine). Like some of the other reviewers of the book I appreciated the purpose of this book, which was to provide inspiration, uplift, and encourage women to be more aware of how emotions, even subconscious, affect their life from financial success to physical health. The premise of Hay’s philosophy seems to be that the thoughts we think, the words we s ...more

The version I "read" was an audio book. Louise Hay is a best-selling author, founder of Hay House, Inc., and the international leader in inspirational and self-help publishing. At times her views can be seen as radical and definately unorthodox.

This (audio) book was interesting and had some really "empowering" advice, thoughts and antedotes but I didn't enjoy it as much as I have her other work.

As with any "self-help" book, I would recommend keeping an open mind and retaining only those things

نصحوني كثير بالقراءة للمؤلفه و وصفوا مؤلفاتها بالرائعه وغيرها ولكن بالنسبة لي شيء محبط كلام مكرر واغلب الكتاب أسئله واجاوب عليها
بدور التويجري
مناسب للخارجات من ازمات،او للمبتدئات بإكتشاف ذواتهن،كلامه لطيف وناعم وداعم،مااستفدت منه حقيقة شيء،بالنسبة لي مكرر،خفيف انهيته بجلستين

كتاب خفيف لطيف يوجه رسائل ايجابية للمرأة،
يختصر الكلام المطول الذي يذكر في كتب اخرى.

"علينا ألا نولي اهتماما للمفهوم القديم القائل إن المرأة لا تستطيع أن تدرك أي شيء. دائما مانظن أننا لانعرف شيئا، ولكننا أكثر ذكاء مما نعتقد، لذا نستطيع أن نتعلم ما نريد."

أنصح كل النساء بقرأته ..

هذا الكتاب البسيط في عرضة ومغزاه كان دون مستوى الفكرة ومستوى التوقعات بكثير ، أصابني الأحباط والملل والفصول الأخيرة كانت ثقيلة ومُكررة جداً ، مادفعني لإقتناء الكتاب كمّ التعليقات الايجابية والتقيم العالي هُنا ، لكنني بالتأكيد لن أُخدع مُجدداً وسأدع هذة الأمور في أسفل قائمتي عند اختيار كتاب جيد!
صراحة رُبما كُتب بحُب وحرص لكنني لم استفد منهُ شيئاً.،

كتاب موجه لكل امرأة، فهو يحتوي على عدة فصول بمواضيع مختلفة. الكتاب جدا تقليدي بمحتواه، فهو لا يلامس ولا يحرك الداخل. كتاب نظري جدا بعبارات تكررت كثيرا في حياتنا وصادفتنا كثيرا. يفتقد الكتاب لعنصر جدا مهم ألا وهو جذب انتباه القارئ.

Velmi pozitivně napsaná kniha že sveta myšlení žen. Popisuje jak se ženy sami omezují, a proč tomu tak je. Autorka popisuje jak to překonat a proč by ženy měli chtít to překonat.

Christiane Northrup is an excellent speaker. I found her section to be extremely entertaing, educational and inspirational. I will keep this disk to share with friends and listen to again.

I wish the other three speakers were as enjoyable. I found parts of their lectures to be downright offensive and radically feminist. They villianize going out of you way to do things to improve your husbands life. I think it is a great thing as long as the respect is mutual in the relationship. Ms. Hay should

This is a great book if you want to change your life, especially if your negative thoughts are keeping you encumbered.

One of my favorite chapters was the one on Advertising.... how ad agencies ensure we keep a negative attitude about our bodies.... It's pretty right on. I have noticed these types of ads on my FB page and I always ask to have them removed as being "Offensive" sometimes I even write a note about them to FB. I don't get many ads on how to get rid of belly fat, wrinkles, etc. any lo

A very realistic view allowing the reader to see that we actually can have control of our lives. Keep in mind that this book was copyrighted in 1997 and some of the women concerns may not still exist. However, despite that, reading this book allows the reader to get an understanding of the importance of loving yourself for who you are. The affirmations throughout the book are uplifting and still current today. As it most self-help books, the answers are not always “just right there,” instead, th ...more

She moved to Chicago, where she worked in menial jobs, before moving in 1950 to New York. At this point she changed her
