I am a book nerd, a business book geek, and I know the power of books. As a writer, as an author, as a publisher and as a reader. I think books are good for the soul. Which is why I launched the book in 8 days service. I think everyone has a book inside them. I found this during the week. It is from “The Book of Secret Wisdom: The Prophetic Record of Human Destiny and Evolution”.
Crystalised fiery energy
Each creation of human hands requires the contribution of one’s own energy. A book, like any creation, ia a particular type of crystallised fiery energy.

It takes over 100,000 different types of proteins to run your body. Each of us is made up of approximately 50 trillion single cells. Human beings are multicellular organisms. You should see yourself as a bustling community of more than 50 trillion individual cells. We also have hundreds of trillions of microbial “invaders,” mostly in our gut, are absolutely necessary for our survival, and there are ten times more of them than cells in the human body.

You are supposed to thrive. You are supposed to feel good. You are good. You are loved, and well-being is constantly flowing to you. If you allow it, it will manifest in all manner of ways in your experience.
Ask the universe
I am a firm believer in asking the universe. Have done some for a long time. The universe gave me the idea of the book in 8 days as a service and gave me a client who is writing a very cool book about high-frequency leadership, or leadership with light in your eyes.
Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires
The book she recommended was “Ask and It Is Given: Learning to Manifest Your Desires”. …
We don’t spend much time considering how we make decisions. Particularly about our own future (or that of your company). It appears that 95% of our decisions are made for us by our subconscious and our programming from our youth.
Move away from instinct
Particular hard choices demand that we train the mind to override the snap judgments of System 1 thinking, that we keep our mind open to new possibilities, starting with the possibility that our instinctive response to a situation is quite likely the wrong one.
For all the biases and intuitive leaps of System 1, one of the hallmarks of human intelligence is the long-term decision-making of System 2: our ability to make short-term sacrifices in …
