The Map – Review by Martha A. Cheves, Author of Stir, Laugh, Repeat; Think With Your Taste Buds; A Book and A Dish
…There are plenty of people who have tons of money but it’s never enough…they are never satisfied, never secure and they never feel truly abundant.
There are people who have the spouse, but not the trust, the support, the respect and the ever-deepening love.
There are people who have careers that they thought would make them happy, but they don’t feel free, creative and excited and they aren’t having fun.
The things are not what bring you the essence (the wonderful, positive feeling states). The essence (the wonderful positive feelings states is what brings you the things…
By now I’m sure you’re asking yourself, what exactly does this have to do with a Map? Well, The Map isn’t just any map. It’s not one that you can use to map out a trip, or is it? Actually the answer is yes and no. You won’t find the highway numbers, little towns and cities you’ll travel through nor your mileage distance but you will find your destination and how to get there. Through following the instructions given in The Map you don’t create your ‘wish’ list you create your ‘intent’ list. And this goes for everything from relationships to jobs to cars, to travel and to everything in between. How? You ask and then believe. Now that doesn’t mean half-heartedly believe. You must truly believe. You must want it strong enough that it is no longer a wish but an intent. Again, how? The Map will map the way for you to have what you intend to have simply by following it’s steps and believing in your own self.
Does this work? A couple years ago I wanted to take a trip to Utah. I lived there a couple years when I was a child and wanted to see if my childhood memories were real or just made up by my mind over the years. Now, how to I afford a trip like this? I thought about it and thought about it and became determined, or should I say intent, upon making this trip. Then it hit me. I was a smoker for 44 years. If I quit smoking I could easily afford this trip. I had tried to quit smoking a hundred times and nothing seemed to work but I was determined to make this trip. Through my intent to quit smoking and my intent to make this trip I did both! And in the long run I did even more that made me very happy. I gave up something that was harmful to my health, I made the trip, I saw relatives that I had not seen in 50 years and will probably never see again, but the biggest accomplishment was that when I became intent on that one trip I proved to myself that I can do and have anything if I really put my mind to it and make it an intent instead of a wish. So, since reading The Map I’ve ‘mapped’ out other intents that I have all the confidence that I will acquire along the way.

Wow! What an amazingly useful, exciting and inspiring book... practical and wise at the same time. We all grew up on fairy tales, those "happy ever after" stories that we wrote off as just that...stories. But this author, using her own real life example, clearly explains step by step HOW she created her own beautiful, rich, fairy tale life and has taught others to do the same. Full of tools and techniques she generously shares, I imagine this book will be resource on my shelf as for a lifetime, to go back to again and again.Was this review helpful?

When I started this book, I picked small things to focus on (like getting a good night's sleep!) just to see if it really works. It does!! Now I'm on to bigger dreams ... in less than one week, I have come up with an idea to save my small business from closing down! This book has taught me how to not panic and instead use that energy to solve problems.
I'm looking forward to more amazing changes in my life. What it really taught me is to honestly answer the question of what I really, really want and then get it! I recommend it for everyone at every level of experience, age and success. Thanks to Boni for taking the time to share!
