Interview with author David Essel

Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life But This Book Will! The Myth of Positive Thinking the Reality of Success

1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?
For years, we had been helping people to accomplish huge goals in life through the combination of attitude and completing action steps on a daily basis. During this time, several clients were coming into our program and asking us to teach them what they had heard about from books like "the secret" and "the law of attraction", so they didn't have to do that much work to attract the money they wanted, or the body they desired, or the soulmate love relationship they longed for.
Not surprisingly it became frustrating to have so many people coming in that wanted great goals in their life… But thought there was a shortcut. We wrote the book to expose the myth of positive thinking, and to give people hope… Hope that there was a way that they could accomplish their most desired goals.

2. What is it about and whom do you believe us your targeted reader?
This is easy. Anyone that wants something in life that they currently don't have regarding a better attitude, more money, better body, a deeper relationship, a more fulfilling spiritual life or career, or freedom from addiction.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?
That they can have almost, but not everything,that they want in life if they're willing to do the work. To hold themselves accountable, or to hire a professional to hold them accountable. That of people invest time, money and effort into their own personal growth and goals, they can move mountains. I also want them to remember the 20% of their success will come from their attitude, and 80% of their success will come from them being willing to do what they would rather not do on a daily basis. That's the secret sauce.

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
Write what you love, write about what you believe in. Don't ever try to start writing a book, unless you have an incredibly detailed outline filled with facts, stories, and points of interest to validate your position in life.

5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
Self-publishing will continue to grow and be a huge part of the publishing industry. I hope, and pray, that we will move away from the fantastical writings, the wishful thinking stereo typical book in the world of personal growth that says you can manifest anything you want effortlessly… I pray, and hope, that that part of the industry that has sold millions upon millions of books We’ll die an instant death. LOL. Those type of books have done more to hurt people in accomplishing their goals then they have to help them.

6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?
There really weren't any challenges at all, which was a beautiful thing to experience. My outline was incredibly detailed, I have created a system where I can write a book in about eight days. Phenomenal! But the only reason that happens is because the outline is so detailed, and I right now via voice to email, and then the editor cleans up what could be a mess if it went straight to a published book. Technology has been a huge aid in my writing style, my storytelling, and my factual ingredients. One of the greatest surprises that happened in a way, was the fact that the first six New York time best-selling author is that I approach to be a part of this book… All said "thank God someone is writing a book to expose the myth of positive thinking." That was a surprise, because I am Magent only one or two might say yes… But it also highly validated the fact that this book would become a bestseller, which it has.

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
If someone can only buy one book this month it absolutely should be a book! We have about 100 stories proving the validity of our system for success. We have celebrities like Jenny McCarthy endorse the book, proving its validity. When people read our book they will be filled with hope, the kind of hope that says "if that person in david's book can lose that amount of weight and keep it off, or this person can get sober and never desire a drink again, or that couple can recover a deeper love in their marriage after an affair… Or if this guy who is homeless can become a millionaire… And David is giving us the formula to follow what all these people did… To become successful… Then I can become successful too."
