The Option Method
One of the most powerful and transformative methods I learned along the way is called The Option Method. It's a simple method of questioning beliefs. I learned it first-hand from Barry Neil Kaufman, author of such gems as To Love Is to Be Happy With.
Barry learned it from the creator of the method, Bruce Di Marsico. I was just given a copy of the late Di Marsico's little book on the method, called The Option Method: Unlock Your Happiness With Five Simple Questions.
The book is very philosophical and thought-provoking. It reads more like notes from Socrates than a Ray Bradbury novel. But every nugget is mind-expanding.
The section in the back by Deborah Mendel, on how to use the Option Method questions for yourself, is worth gold. These are the very questions I still use today, sometimes naturally and automatically in consultations with clients, but more often then not just with myself, to discover and release my own limiting beliefs to experiencing happiness right now.
I urge you to read this little-known classic.
I'm sure Amazon sells it.

PS - The Newsweek magazine cover story on the movie The Secret should hit the stands any day now. I'm excited! I suspect it will probably be one-sided rather than objective, but at least a whole new audience will hear about this inspiring flick. Onwards!
