Glenn Beck and coauthor Dr. Keith Ablow have launched a website dedicated to their new book “The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life.” You can visit the site by going to: http://theseven.glennbeck.com/. See the video below to hear Glenn and Keith discuss more concepts within “The 7″.
This new site features Dr. Keith Ablow’s Blog, The 7 Day Pledge, Q&A, Videos, Book Quotes, and more information about The 7: Seven Wonders That Will Change Your Life. And the site also features Testimonials by everyday citizens impacted by “The 7″. Incredible letters. Here is one:
“This may be an odd way to begin a book recommendation, but nevertheless it’s where I must begin, with a disclaimer — I am not a fan of Glenn Beck. Look, I don’t know him personally, but I don’t agree with his political positions and I find his public persona annoying. Furthermore, I have an Obama bumper sticker on my car. So why the hell did I read a book he co-authored, and why am I writing a recommendation for that book, and why do you care?
I read the book because someone who’s opinion and insight I value tremendously gave it to me, and because I like to think of myself (as we all do I suspect) as being open minded and willing to entertain ideas counter to my own beliefs. So this was the challenge; could I get around my own preconceptions and read the book on face value? I tried, and I am very glad that I did.
The book is a gem for those of us looking to get our lives on track or looking to live with more passion and meaning. It is not a political polemic and it is not a religious sermon, it is a practical guide using 7 concrete steps that will help you live more fully and lead the life you were intended to lead.
Dr. Ablow makes a great case for listening to your inner voice whispering, “this may bring out the best in me”. It’s a book about encouraging you to find your true path and having the courage to take the leaps of faith required to live a full life. If like Ablow and Beck you call the inner voice “god”, you will be at home. If you call the inner voice, the very best part of you, your soul, or your higher power you will still be at home.
Not everyone will have the opportunity in life to talk about inner growth with one of the country’s leading psychiatrists, however most everyone can get a copy of this book and spend some time in thoughtful contemplation with it’s principles.
These principles have led me to live my life with more courage and faith. My professional life is blossoming, my personal life is filled with more love, and I am looking to the future with excitement. Maybe, as Ablow writes, there are no co-incidences, and maybe we would all do better to follow the bread crumbs of life with more curiosity, even if they occasionally take us to an uncomfortable place.
And for those of you, who like me “place yourself on the left”, and can’t ever imagine reading a book with Glenn Beck in the title, then cross out the name and call him “Bob Smith” — because it’s a story of Everyman, a story of tremendous personal growth, and the messy painful business of making a meaningful life. There is some wonderful stuff in this book if you allow yourself to get to it, and that is the third wonder, the truth.”
