Forgive to Win! by Walter Jacobson
Available in paperback and Kindle format.
Walter Jacobson has, in this book produced a clear recipe for self-help, through helping others.
He teaches us how our negative and cruel actions and comments to others are our subconscious way of sabotaging our attempts at self-healing, fuelling our negative feelings of self-loathing and guilt. He clearly explains how we use others’ misfortune to make excuses for ourselves, and that only by learning to be forgiving and kind to others can we find the way to forgive ourselves.
Clear examples are given of how it is possible to change for the better, helping others in so many ways, and, in return, helping ourselves.
The author has provided a very well thought out formula for self help, which he presents as the Forgiveness Diet.
The Forgiveness Diet, like any diet, is composed of various requirements for balanced healthy daily living. The amounts and composition, of the various constituents are explained in detail. Included, to help in the reinforcement of the diet, are affirmations, mantras, and visualizations. The author discusses dreams, their meanings, and how they can be used in a positive way.
This is no miracle cure. The author suggests the Forgiveness Diet be followed initially for 90 days, that the depth of healing will vary from person to person, and that the changes are for life. He advises how to cope with loved ones who are worried about the new you, and warns that Rome wasn’t built in a day.
Eventually, you can progress to the Success Diet, which is an expansion enabling you to embrace your goals and ambitions.
What a perfect title. I feel this book could not fail to change anyone’s life for the better, and implementing the diet would definitely make them a nicer person to others and themselves.
