The author presents a 5 step formula for the purpose.These steps are:

The book is divided into sections that describe each step separately in a brief but sadly not as extensive way as one would like, but the author says in his conclusion that he meant it that way.One advantage of this approach is that the author presents the outline of each idea and leaves the reader to research it further.He has given a list of websites, movies, books and videos at the end for the purpose.However if you expect a satisfying and extensive description of the steps then you may be disappointed.
Despite the brevity, the book still manages to paint a nice picture of enlisted techniques and methods.The ideas presented in this book are backed by scientific evidence.For example, visualization or imagining oneself in a better position or achievement of a goal helps motivates us work towards our goals.This technique helps realize the mood and feelings associated with our potential achievement.This has a remarkably uplifting effect on one’s mood and outlook towards life.I employed this technique and found it immensely satisfying and positive.
Another powerful tool is building self-image.A number of people suufer due to low confidence and self-belief.It stops them from achieving their full potential in life.The author gives helpful advice regarding the problem and encourages us to believe in our abilities and talents.
You will find similar sort of advice on other topics.Overall the book does a good job of inspiring the reader towards a better life.However ordinary language and poor editing make the reading experience somewhat less enjoyable.
