As might be presumed from the titles of these two books, both authors use Rhonda Byrne's phenomenally successful The Secret as a springboard to suggest applications to its theory. Davis (Living with Intention) uses logic to demonstrate how expectations often precede experience and that being intentional can make dreams a reality. The three steps she advocates for change include choosing one's state, setting one's intention, and taking inspired action. The activities involved in each are as simple as practicing gratitude or as difficult as letting go of negative emotions. Davis writes for the skeptic and lays out a healthy way of being in the world.
Ricotti, CEO of a global leadership organization, suggests 11 steps to enjoy freedom and inner peace in every area of life. In a simple, step-a-day format, she helps readers keep goals in mind, let go of the past, and choose friends carefully. Tips include writing a gratitude manifesto, forgiving others, and chasing away inner saboteurs. The beauty of this book is that it's short, simple, and easy to digest. Both titles would make welcome additions to public libraries.
