Overview

What is the foundation underpinning success in all areas of life? Is there a blueprint? What if you learned that your beliefs were the very cornerstones that supported success, and that having a few of these could give rise to success in some areas while complete failure in others?  Would you choose to build a stronger overall foundation?

Very few people today doubt the power of positive thinking. We all know that if we expect to fail, then failure is inevitably what we get, and there is also the issue of the mind/body connection—science is repeatedly demonstrating the power of mind and belief to heal. What you believe can and does have a huge impact on the quality of your life—from success in business to success in relationships, from your ability to learn and master new subjects to your ability to heal your own body. But have you ever stopped to consider your own beliefs—to truly examine them and decide for yourself if they are serving you or sabotaging you?

Eldon Taylor has spent over 25 years researching the power of the mind and developing scientifically proven methods to use this power to enhance the quality of your life. I Believe is a book that will not only inspire you, but will highlight the kinds of beliefs you hold that may be causing you to fail. In the process, it will provide you with the opportunity to choose, once again, the beliefs that drive your life.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I Believe" is one of those special books to be experienced and contemplated not just read and the information recorded. Enjoy the journey... I did."  
Lindsay Wagner, actress, author, and advocate of human potential

“The ancient Greek philosopher Epictetus taught his students that what happens to them is not as important as what they believe happens to them. In this engaging and provocative book, Eldon Taylor provides his readers with speci!c ways in which their beliefs can lead to success or failure in their life undertakings. Each chapter provides nuggets of wisdom as well as road maps for guiding them toward greater self-understanding, balance, responsibility, and compassion.”
— Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Alan Watts Professor of psychology and humanistic studies, Saybrook University, and co-author of Personal Mythology

“I Believe is an inspiring book that shows you all the bene!ts of choosing your beliefs carefully.”
— John Gray, Ph.D., New York Times best-selling author of Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus

“A new view of mind and consciousness is arising from within science and psychology. This emerging picture honors the power of belief, meaning, and purpose, and brings with it stunning possibilities of human potential. Eldon Taylor’s I Believe is a nononsense invitation to experience this domain for yourself. This book deserves a wide readership, especially for anyone who’s interested in self-responsibility and prevention in health. In the end, it’s this vision that will turn around our nation’s faltering health care, which makes this book all the more important.”
— Larry Dossey, M.D., author of!Reinventing Medicine! and The Power of Premonitions

“In straightforward Eldon fashion, you’ll learn how to plug into all you desire, and you’ll understand why you may have been the source of your sabotage. Whether it’s a matter of relationships or wellness, prosperity or self-satisfaction, this book will open a new vista of understanding solidly connected to scienti!c evidence. You’ll read it and re-read it, sharing its valuable content with everyone you love.”
— Peggy McColl, New York Times best-selling author of Your Destiny Switch

“Most of us live life according to the story of who we think we are. Past wounds, disappointments, poor choices, and a gnawing awareness that we are not living life to its maximum potential in a state of harmony and joy are a direct result of this self-limiting myth. In this book, Eldon Taylor encourages us to activate the inner reservoir of our untapped potential and to question our prior beliefs and patterns of behavior. Creating a ‘new’ story can liberate us to become our most authentic selves and to celebrate the miracle and adventure of life, in a world of in!nite possibilities.”
— Annamaria Hemingway, Ph.D., author of Practicing Conscious Living and Dying and Myths of the Afterlife

“For inestimable millennia, global human-race consciousness has typically tended toward embracing fear and worry as a way of life and often all but forgetting the true and only power of love, as ampli!ed by personal, conscious awareness of one’s Divine Self. Dr. Taylor’s newest book clearly demonstrates that there truly is an emerging trend to return to this Divine awareness. This is exempli!ed in his intelligent, caring language, ideas, and methods to help the reader to achieve subtle but powerful spiritual awareness to dissolve the fear while !nding personal balance in one’s life. Promoting ‘love is the great equalizer,’ his obvious appreciation of being a curious and vibrant human, immersed in a joyful, supportive universe, brings delightful buoyancy to the pages, transmitting his inescapable exuberance and positivity to the reader.”
— August Goforth, author of The Risen: Dialogues of Love, Grief & Survival

“The author deftly weaves insights, humor, questions, and personal anecdotes into a humanized worldview that’s extremely readable, entertaining, and informative. Since we all unfold our human lives out ‘into’ the beliefs we have, this book is a very useful road map for how to live both gracefully and authentically. Highly recommended.”
— Chuck Hillig, author of Enlightenment for Beginners and Seeds for the Soul

I felt like this book was the author trying to get the reader to believe what he believed. The review for the book made you really want to read it, but I somewhat disappointed.
RAnnRousseau More than 1 year ago
When I saw the release of Eldon Taylor’s new book I Believe – When What You Believe Matters! I got the chills again. I was hoping this book would be as inspirational as the Sea World presentation I had seen a year ago in San Diego . The book is split up into twenty-six chapters where Eldon discusses what he thinks or believes about each topic such as Goals and Ambitions, Instinct and Intuition, Afterlife and End of Life, and Relationships. The last paragraph of the book jacket states that, “Eldon Taylor has spent more than 25 years researching the power of the mind and developing scientifically proven methods to enhance the quality of your life. I Believe is a book that will not only inspire you, but will highlight the kinds of beliefs you hold that may be causing you to fail. In the process, it will provide you with the opportunity to choose, once again, that will drive your life.” What I Didn’t Like About this Book That’s six you’s or your’s in one book jacket paragraph. Problem is, there was nothing about the You that is Me in this whole book. The reader is an afterthought. I started counting how many times Eldon started a sentence with “I Believe,” but then lost count. For someone who has spent 25 years in science, I wasn’t expecting to read parables, quotes and some Bible stories to support his thoughts about how he arrived at his beliefs. Does the reader really care what Eldon believes? Some people might. When a reader picks up a book with this title, they want to gain a deeper understanding about themselves, what they believe and then be inspired to pursue that belief. The reader should not be an afterthought in the last paragraph of each chapter in a section called Reflection where Eldon asks, “So what is it that you believe?” Do you really care? What I Did Like About this Book I liked Eldon’s personal stories. I liked where he used real examples to support his belief or position. I loved his mention of his wife and his devotion to her. That was lovely. There was nothing new here except if you care to know what Eldon Taylor believes about various aspects of life which might be best put into an autobiography. I don’t think what I believe matters at all to the author, therefore I was not inspired by this book. I was hoping for a book that would prompt some introspection but instead I got talked at. My recommendation-Pass. Explore Beyond the Usual gives this book 2 stars. ABOUT THE AUTHOR R. Ann Rousseau writes about metaphysical, spiritual and astrology topics on her blog Explore Beyond the Usual. She is author of the new novel Portsmouth, A Love Story.

We create our reality by our thoughts and beliefs! What a quantum concept!

“Simply Fantastic! As I read Eldon Taylor’s I Believe, I kept wondering how Taylor was able to take the “golden nuggets” of wisdom that I have collected over my lifetime through books, courses, workshops and personal training and distill it so elegantly into a single volume! Those already deeply into spiritual development and introspective inquiry will truly appreciate what a gem this book is; not only because of the wisdom within its pages, but also because of how Taylor brilliantly weaves stories , history, and science together in order to gently invite the reader into a new state of awareness. Another masterpiece by Eldon Taylor!” ~Karen Kan, MD Law of Attraction Relationship Author and Coach
