He is very relatable and real as an artist that woke up on his 30th birthday with nothing to show for himself. Thus begins his journey to "living the dream" but on his terms.
He does a beautiful job of listing the books, authors, sprititual practices and "Aha! One of the things I love most about Marc Allen is that he is very personable and you can tell that he really wants others to be able to find their way to the life they dream of, peace, joy, fullfullment and happiness.
I am happy to say that his book helped me greatly in my journey towards all these things. Oct 10, Mike Sambuco rated it liked it Shelves: personal-development. I appreciated the amount of information and keys to success that are shared, here.
Some I'd read about or heard others teach, but many were new. Marc Allen's approach and attitude is much different than most, and I could appreciate that, also. I didn't care for some of the spiritual teachings and perspective, however, which influenced my overall rating.

It is all in one place here, ready to be consulted as you go through your planning and change process. That there is nothing really new here is not a drawback, but rather speaks to the book's comprehensive spirit. Best yet, it is a very quick read -- I was able to go start to finish in less than an hour.
Of course, the reading of the book is not the key -- it's the living of the life. If the reader is considering bu Very handy walk through all of the current literature of growth and affirmation.

Take any phrase from this Course that appeals to you in some way — many are highlighted in bold type — and repeat it, remember it, live with it for a while, and see how you can apply it in your life. Many of these keys are illusive, or baffling.
Many seem simplistic, or obvious. Many are very much like Zen koans — cryptic little phrases that need to be meditated on before they are understood. Do we practice it? This is a good question to ask yourself: Are you working hard or working smart? Reading this book is certainly a step in the right direction.
That little phrase is a great key to success, and we cover it in depth in Lesson Four. The title to that lesson is another key: See the full half of the glass, the benefits in adversity, and keep picturing success.
The title of every lesson in this Course is a key in itself. Those words are a key to a life well lived.
There are keys in common phrases we often say to each other: Take it easy, we say — how many of us really do it? Those words are great advice for us all, every moment of our lives. Take it easy. This, for some mysterious reason, is a powerful process that helps us go a long way toward creating that ideal scene in our lives.
We go into this in detail in Lesson 1. You decide which part to work on, and you do it in your own way, according to your own impulses. This Course is multifaceted, offering you a wide variety of ways to create what you want in life.
One of the best ways to work with this material is to go through the series of twelve chapters or lessons step-by-step, and then go back and roam through the material, pick out what you want to focus on, and work with it more extensively. Follow your own impulses; work with it in your own way.
Take as much or as little time with each lesson as you need. First you have to hear or read the information, with enough receptiveness so that you take it in. Then you have to reflect on it, and discover its meaning within your own experience.
At this stage, information becomes knowledge. Then you find new and creative ways you can apply it in your life, moment by moment, as challenges and opportunities arise. At this stage, knowledge has become wisdom. Please put this book down every once in a while and reflect on what you have read. Apply it to your own life. It will be worth doing. Each of us is obviously different and unique.
Find what works for you, and take it and freely adapt it as much as you choose. Nothing is required; everything is optional. As they say in Alcoholics Anonymous and other Twelve-Step programs, Take what you need and leave the rest.
I have included it because I have included everything that has affected me deeply enough to change my life, and many of those things are spiritual.
I have learned about the power of prayer, and have seen its effects in my life. I have found that prayer, when done consistently, is a highly efficient, effective tool for growth and success. Discover the power of affirmations instead, or self-suggestion, or creative visualization, or self-hypnosis, or reprogramming, or simply writing your goals repeatedly, or whatever else appeals to you.
All these techniques work. Then the magic happens. Many of these keys are just simple, common sense. Many have the effect of reprogramming your conscious mind, creating new synapses in your brain, and deleting old programs that are not serving you or the world. There are a great number of them, and I have tried to include in these pages every one that has had a major impact on my life. These keys are often called secrets, and they remain secrets to most people, yet they are secrets not because anyone is trying to keep them from anyone else — in fact, successful people love spouting them.
But they are self-secret, because their meaning is obscure until you discover it within your own mind, and apply it in your own experience. A great many of these keys are well-known parts of the perennial philosophy that is as old as humankind.
The ancient classic from India, the Bhagavad Gita , put it this way:. That was written five thousand years ago — perhaps there are more people prepared to hear them today. Find any phrase in this book, any key or secret that appeals to you at the moment, and think about it, repeatedly. Reflect on it, see how it can apply in your life.
