Sis at Passionate Christian Marriage…
Athol Kay is not a Christian and this is not a Christian marriage book, but I think it should be recommended reading for every Christian marriage out there.
What I loved about Mindful Attraction Plan by Athol Kay
-All the amazing advice on how to lose weight, be happier, be more positive, be more productive, and get your life under control.
-He is funny and charming, it is a joy to read.
-His strong, no-nonsense approach to marriage….only a man could come with this and it is desperately needed today. Strong leadership, he is going to make a great life coach.
-I love how when someone comes to him with a problem about their spouse, he says “you can’t change your spouse, but you can change yourself”
-I like how he shows you that your happiness and success in life is not dependent upon your spouse.
As a huge fan of Eckhart Tolle’s The Power of Now about being and living in the present, I think The Mindful Attraction Plan has a lot to offer for self-improvement and about seeing the dynamics between people in a new light. I can say that there are still stagnant things in my own life that I need to work on, and this book has me already addressing them in a way that is positive and doesn’t beat up too bad the reader’s past choices. It’s a very positive mindset book, and while it’s a little soft for my tastes, still has a lot to offer and is a good introduction to self-improvement, marriage improvement and sex improvement (in a roundabout way) without scarring the uninitiated. I would say it’s a good companion to The Primer, but of the two, The Primer is more of a slap in the face from a Bull which I think is needed for many men having a hard time figuring out why their marriage isn’t what they want. The MAP is a soft approach into the same areas and is a great intro to men and women who are looking to simply improve themselves and as a result, their marriage and sex life.
As an aside… one of the things I’ve noticed with people who wanted/expected a harder edged book… they also usually mentioned they had started to make changes because of the book. Don’t listen to what they say… watch what they do? ;-)
