The book is presented in seven
chapters in which an explanation of the subconscious mind is

Chapter five is my body, my temple and chapter six introduces
the real foe: the real relationship between the conscious and
the sub conscious. Chapter seven is the finishing notes and conclusions.
In "Your Real Foe Why Motivational
Books Don't Work" writer McMasters offers the notion that
the subconscious mind never rests, is always listening, takes
things literally, can tell the self not to fail, and can be programmed.
McMasters says emotion plays a part and the subconscious mind
cannot understand sarcasm. How to program the subconscious according
to author McMasters is to say what you want, write what you want,
visualize and daydream what you want. Consistency is good, Mc
Masters directs that we are wise to tell the subconscious what
is what, and then let the subconscious figure out how to attain.
Meditation, Weight loss, Ki energy
force examples are all presented. Writer McMasters says getting
what you want is linked to the health of the body; exercise is
important, it is important to avoid what is bad for health and
don't overdo. Because environment affects conscious thought,
the subconscious may try to set you straight. Because the subconscious
will work against change it can be either an allay or a deterrent.
Saboteurs, the real foe of motivation is explained.
Fear is a major saboteur. Writing
down plans, talking to self and friends and meditation/hypnosis
are good ways to help us put everything into perspective. McMasters
says saboteurs pop up when least expected, it is important to
eliminate saboteurs. If we will control conscious thought then
we can eliminate saboteurs faster … stop saying/thinking
negatives. McMasters presents Elimination techniques.
Writer McMasters presents a well
rounded work in "Your Real Foe Why Motivational Books Don't
Work". His writing is easily read and understood by the
layman. Author McMasters presents techniques that make sense.
Australian McMasters experienced depression during his university
years and fought his way back to reclaim his life. It was that
experience that set him on the path toward an understanding for
why most motivational books do not work. From the time McMasters
was a teen the notion that taking control of his life has held
great appeal for him.
Good enlightening read, happy
