|Legacy: The Power Within - A Review
By Laura M. Turner
"The power of thought can, change your attitude, change your behavior, change your life."
~ Tony DeLiso Legacy: The Power Within
There is a saying in nutritional circles most people have heard. It's a simple, almost cliché quote that states "you are what you eat." If that's the case, and you asked Tony DeLiso author of Legacy: The Power Within what he thought about it, he'd probably tell you, sure it's true. Then he'd probably say, I'd only change one word to make it the quote a greater one. His would read, "You are what you think."
I would also venture this guess: he'd say his book is living proof.
In his 129 pages, DeLiso challenges readers to remember just this: we are what we think. A provocative idea that calls us all to take responsibility for our own happiness. Next, he takes readers a step further asking us to police our thoughts, pulling the weeds of negativity. In his reasoning, we may only grow our garden of positive outcomes this way, removing the mental obstacles as we go. To do this we must ask ourselves the appropriate "what if" questions. Questions like: What if instead of feeling as if life were a thing that "happens to us," we could be at root cause of our life? What if outcomes of events - most importantly our own joy in life - are our responsibility? Further what if we could move from the passenger seat of life to be poised behind the wheel?
And the answer to all these what if's? To them, DeLiso says "Yes." And in answer to "so how do you know?" He'd most likely say: it's our promise from the divine. Yet, again, I'm merely speculating.
What he does do with complete certainty, however, is show you how to invoke the "promise" from his experience. He does this in his easy to understand "ask and you shall receive" method of manifesting, beginning with your thoughts. Then he'll turn you loose with his methodology - and the rest, well, that's up to you and me.
Sounds simple enough, right? Not exactly. Here's some questions you'll need to ask yourself to be at the ready:
Have you ever really stopped and thought about what you were thinking? If you did just for a few moments, as DeLiso suggests, can you hear your own inner dialogue? What is your voice saying to you? Have you focused on what you have and are grateful for - instead of what is missing in your life?
I can tell you honestly, dear reader, these were not easy exercises for me. Yet, after doing so, here's some of what I came up with:
Of my voice, it seems unaffected by those things that I thought most important: the large matters. Those like world events; the presidential election. Once becoming aware, I realized, it is the list making that is at the fore. And all the doing deprives me from gratitude (save driving me to near madness). Therefore, I came away from this exercise realizing, it's the step by step process that is most troubling to me and in deep need of uprooting.
Once I made this discovery though, I began looking for ways I could get control of these thoughts. Further, I now understand, my work is to wield my mind into one that is ready to manifest and appreciate joy, love, abundance. And, like any good mechanic, DeLiso has given me his tools.
Once you've prepared your mind to receive, DeLiso will show you how to:
Create affirmations that will help you on your way to manifesting a more positive, thoughtful life
Create meditations to achieve desired outcomes
Create goals and solve problems as you move along
Use your own thoughts to recreate your life into the one you imagine
Accept that good and prosperity can come to you and how to open your heart to receive
But it all begins with us - and our thoughts. DeLiso's book then, is an internal workbook, one that shows all the how and why of who we really are. The quest, should you brave its climb, will show you how to recognize your "self" - in your happy, joyous state. It will then help you build the road to get and keep you there. If you are looking for more joy, peace, love, abundance and a solid sense of self, Legacy: The Power Within WILL show you the way... but you must be willing to do the work.
