Lucinda Bassett's The Solution is a very important book, given our current anxiety-ridden culture. We seem to be inundated by negativity and fear, and there doesn't seem to be a way out. Because of this, anxiety and depression levels have risen to new highs over the past decade or so. Something needs to be done and Bassett is indeed doing just that.
The Solution: Conquer Your Fear, Control Your Future shows how anxiety sufferers can take back their power so that they can find the confidence and strength that they need to live fulfilling and happy lives. We have to begin with our thoughts. If our thoughts are negative, our lives will be negative as well. And anxiety-prone people have many negative thoughts.
In order to reverse those anxious and negative feelings, they have to reprogram their negative thoughts in favour of positive ones. In her book, Bassett outlines a 21 day plan that all readers can participate in to take control of their lives. Since it takes 21 days to break any bad habit and form a new one, this book outlines a doable guide to a complete emotional makeover that everyone can participate in.
Bassett makes the reprogramming process easier by including positive and empowering personal affirmations throughout the book. These personal affirmations may seem difficult for many anxious readers to initially bring about. However, after reading the book, these affirmations will make sense. And with patience and practise, readers can reprogram their negative thoughts in favour of positive ones.
I would recommend the book to anyone who suffers from anxiety or loves someone who does. This book will change their lives for the better. It is such a hopeful and inspiring book and, therefore, a joy to read. So, let's all get on the path to positive self-transformation!
