Everyone says that positive attitude is everything for achieving greater happiness, health and success, yet no one, until now, has given the world a formula that is simple enough to remember and therefore use on a daily basis.
One of Mueller's gifts in this text is such a formula: FGH - Forgiveness of the past, Gratitude for the present and Hope for the future. The remaining five High-Ways address the most common stumbling blocks to using FGH:
High-Way 1: Get the Picture. It reminds us how to clearly see our dreams happening and "think it till we feel it."
High-Way 2: Risk. Once the picture is clear, we must "run to, not from" and face our fears in order to move forward.
High-Way 3: Full Responsibility. Rather than a burden, this is the key to freedom as we discover that we are the only problem we have and therefore, we are the solution.
High-Way 4: Feel All Your Feelings. For those suffering with depression or rage, this chapter unfolds amazing insights into how Mad and Sad balance each other.
High-Way 5:Honest Communication. When you're ready to stop getting defensive in arguments and be done with triangulation in the workplace, Mueller shows the way with down-to-earth examples of her clients' success stories.
The result of these High-Ways is a step-by-step process that helps young and old find greater happiness and success. The fact that Mueller has also created a widely- used curriculum for high schools based on her material is testimony to the fact that her methods are simple without being sugar-coated and powerful without being pompous.
