Medical doctor Louis Koster does a wonderful job in his book, "A New Language For Life, Happy No Matter What!" of helping the reader gain new insight into how they can turn a mundane life situation into one that brings joy and happiness. This book provides the reader with "The Choice" which the author describes as making "...a firm commitment to be happy, fulfilled and satisfied with your current situation." So many allow the circumstances of life to dictate how they respond emotionally and Koster challenges the reader to take control of their emotions and the circumstances that surround their everyday living to make things enjoyable and fulfilling.
Next, he presents several types of power that an individual possess and how they can use them to turn their life from a negative prospective to a positive one. One of the sections that spoke loudly to me was the one on interruptions being a blessing and being centered. There is great insight given on how all interruptions aren't bad, some in fact are actually for our benefit. Also, when we focus on being centered and balanced within our life we stand less of a chance of an emotional wreck.
Sometimes we must change our way of thinking and living if we are to become a better person. We must learn to listen as well as to offer forgiveness and move past the points of who's right or wrong. We must allow positive, encouraging things into our life rather than the dead, lifeless, negative ones. The power of the tongue is very important and what we speak we tend to bring to pass within our lives.
While this is written in more of a New Age perspective, I think many of the principles are very valuable and insightful. Most anyone could take the advice of this author and become a better person. My only hesitation is that God isn't given the due credit for helping one become that person and it is left to an outer power or influence. For that reason I would have to give the book 4 instead of 5 stars.
This book was provided by the author for my honest review.
