Law of Attraction, Meet the Law of ActionThe Law of Attraction tells us that whatever we focus our attention on, consciously or not, we attract into our lives. Think happy thoughts, enjoy happy experiences. And vice versa. Begin with Yes introduces the Law of Action, a principle that reverses the order - and is equally powerful: What we do affects how we think, and the kinds of experiences we have. When we take small, manageable steps, we feel more positive and our lives flow more smoothly.Begin with Yes is all about setting things in motion and opening new doors. Getting unstuck. In this short, engaging conversation, counselor, coach, and motivational speaker Paul Boynton maps out a surprisingly easy, logical, and liberating alternate route to a better life. In short, not only does Begin with Yes make change seem possible, it provides concrete examples that show the way. ... Read more

Little Book, Big Inspiration
Many people in recent years have embraced the philosophy behind "The Secret," "The Law of Attraction," and the popular books by Eckhart Tolle and have started to become more conscious of their thoughts and how their thoughts create their reality.
What Paul Boynton does in "Begin With Yes" is gently instruct the reader on how to bring the Law of Attraction out of the mind and into action."The secret to a good life," writes the author, "is less about having a positive attitude and more about taking positive actions."
This is a small book, but one that has a big impact.Boynton has fashioned the book as a friendly conversation between author and reader, providing easy language and clear examples of how to take the first action steps.
"Begin With Yes" is designed to get us moving, and Boynton provides us with very simple ways of putting it all into motion.I really liked the personal stories Boynton uses throughout the book of friends and colleagues who have a "begin with yes" attitude, but I especially liked when Boynton talked about his own journey.
One passage that stands out for me is when Boynton and a friend are driving past a newly constructed home in the neighborhood, and Boynton says, "Look at that ugly house." As soon as he says it, the author realizes how negative he sounds, and he makes the shift to "Look at that house; it's not my style."This is not a major revelation, but that's Boynton's point: All we need to do to have a "Begin With Yes" attitude is to take one positive, life-affirming step at a time.
Boynton's book (with a beautiful cover design by Michael Wynne) will uplift and encourage you the next time you encounter a long line at the grocery store or an inattentive waiter at a restaurant.It has brought me much peace, and I trust it will do the same for you. The best time to start is now!
