This may be a bit tongue in cheek but it is a true story. I know this for a fact as I am the one who had the heart attack.

No, I did not use the book to break my fall when I was in the throws of the attack, or to rest my head on in the ambulance. I used it two months later as medication.

Medication works on your brain to change your mood, thought patterns or act on the pain control centers.

I wanted to find a way to help myself. I thought that if I changed my attitude and mindset I could release the hold my heart attack was having on my well being. I felt stuck in one emotional and financial place.

After a heart attack there is a period of adjustment that takes place. Depending on your individual case you may need to stop working at your old job and find a new way to receive an income. I had to do this and found out how to write a book, start a blog and post articles at different sites to get my message out there.

I was always interested in psychology and I recognized that now I could turn that desire about the human mind into the study of anxiety, panic, depression and other disorders.

Until I had a reason to focus on my burning desire and the opportunity came along , I was not fulfilling my lifes interest. When there was a problem and I found a solution to it, this was the way I began to get my life back in order again.

On a personal level, I was thrust into a physical situation that I was having difficulty with. I was not able to be as active as I had been, therefore putting me at risk of gaining weight . This bothered me until I realized that I felt happy and grateful to be alive. I learned from studying The New Think And Grow Rich philosophy that I had choices and began associating with people who had a like minded attitude. I used the time I had ,because I was now working from home, to read and gain knowledge about what options I now had and how I was going to use these options for a better, more productive life.

Before the heart attack I now realize that I was only using part of my personal potential. I felt more confident and positive once I allowed myself to open up my mind to the concept of a new way of thinking.

It is natural to slip back into the old patterns of thinking and acting but I work and live the teachings and philosophy of The New Think And Grow Rich each day. At first I felt awkward about the changes going on inside of me, but with each passing day I saw the benefits that putting out good, brings back more good. I have many daily examples of this . I saw these benefits because I was looking for them and I believe that I will get what I want when I have done the work or sown the seeds that need to be sown.

Some desires will take longer than others to manifest themselves. It is not like pulling a rabbit out of a hat, events happen in their own time when you have followed the necessary steps required.

I have been saved by the opportunities I now recognize and the effort I am willing to put forth. This is why I can honestly say that The New Think And Grow Rich saved me after a heart attack.

I got inspired and took action on my desire to do and be more.
