Louise believes that we create everything in our life. Everything has been a choice of ours, whether by conscious or sub-conscious thought. And after finishing the book, I can't agree with her more. Louise had a really shitty life before she started the work she still currently does now (she's in her 90's!). She does not blame anyone for this, not even those who were abusive and hurtful towards her, and she has found something to learn from each experience and situation she's been in.
Louise's main message is that if you can really appreciate and love the person you are, you can dramatically change your life. The love for ourselves can fix many aspects of our life whether it be work, relationships, money etc.
Another part I really loved was the fact that we often blame things wrong in our life on our family, particularly our parents, and the way we were brought up. Louise encourages you to recognise that we are all victims of victims and that your parents can only work with what they were taught and the way they were brought up, and their parents the same etc. She feels that blame will only keep you in the problem you're currently having and that to move forward it is important to change your view from blame to understanding and compassion.
There are many other words of wisdom that Louise provides in her book and I strongly recommend you get your hands on a copy so you too can learn as much, if not more, as I have.
Have you read this book or any of Louise's other books? What were your thoughts on the way Louise teaches? What did you gain from the book you read?
