    Managing our thoughts, beliefs, energy and intentions will bring success!

    Mary Lore's book is a must read for anyone who is interested in the power and energy that their thoughts and intentions can create along with the change that positive beliefs can make in our world. Simply by following the guidelines of this book, we are able to manage our thoughts to bring about a positive shift in the energies that surround us. <BR/><BR/>Mary's book inspired me to think about how I process my desirable outcome in my life and what changes were to be made to achieve the most powerful results. This book has helped me immensely in not only bringing awareness and clarity to what those desires are but also in how to achieve them. <BR/><BR/>Great easy read for generations to come!

    A reviewer

    This is a well written book that applies to my professional and personal thoughts and habits. I am now aware that my thoughts affected many outcomes in my life including how my thoughts/actions may have been received by others. This book empowered me, I am a better person as a result of realizing that we have good and bad thoughts, but the key is managing our thoughts! It is an outstanding manual for life and a must read for everyone. We have the power to recognize and handle all things in life by understanding that our thoughts are not just thoughts and can be managed to enjoy the fullness of life!

    Managing Thought: Directions to a Higher Purpose

    Sometimes, life is like crossing a river on foot. Cautionary steps, twisted ankles, unexpected bites, and a strong current can keep us from our intended path. In Managing Thought, Mary Lore provides stepping stones to help our crossing. Managing Thought is a step-by-step direct approach to defining life goals, eliminating obstacles, and creating a path to achievement.<BR/> In using examples from her own personal life and her business career, Mary's voice is understanding, encouraging, and cogent.<BR/> Personally, after reading this book, I have a better understanding of the importance of my thoughts, the strength of these thoughts, and how they influence my life. With this knowledge, I hope to manage my own thoughts toward a happier, healthier, and more peaceful life.<BR/> Moreover, I found her book inspiring and altruistic, which I didn't anticipate. I felt challenged by and accepted the author's call to pursue 'a life well-lived'.

    Helped me through dificult circumstances!

    Mary Lore's book Managing Thought, has been instrumental in working through some very difficult situations both professionally and personally recently. Previously I would have approached a situation in a very linear manner, pursuing the results I want and correcting along the way to preserve the relationship, the outcome was routinely poor with damage to the relationship and the results along the way. I recently had a business experience with a customer we had been trying to satisfy unsuccesfully for two years. We traveled to meet him, worked on his issues and intended to seperate by leaving him a check for significant sum of money and a cessation letter from our attorney. We worked hard to resolve as many issues on site as possible, but we still faced a legal termination of the relationship. Managing Thought provided me with tools I used to resolve nearly all of our outstanding issues and bring about resolution 'without attorneys' for a 10th of our proposed settlement costs. What Mary's book taught me is the concept of creating separation between the negative thoughts coming out of your brain and the reality that those can 'and are' different from who you are, what you want to present and what you want to accomplish! This was an epiphany to me. Adding that element of control and not reacting to with the thoughts presented by my brain, treating them as merely input 'and not always constructive' to the situation really opened my eyes. I am genuinely grateful to Mary and her wonderful book!

    Depression Remedy!!

    I read this book because I'd heard it helped a friend in her attitude toward her business. Little did I realize that it was also a specific, step by step method to overcome depression and the feelings of helplessness I felt in many areas of my life. Now, when I start feeling an emotional drop, I just start using the tools contained in this wonderful book, and I don't have to be a victim of what used to feel like the inevitable. Emotional drops are not inevitable. Now I understand that, and can not only avoid them, but can guide my life toward any direction I feel is right for me. This book is a very realistic version of 'Your Dreams Come True'.
