Joe Namath is an inspirational leader and teacher of spiritual development and life direction. Some of his books have sold millions worldwide. He is widely regarded as a “Guru,” or a religious leader who can teach people from different religions and cultures. I personally have benefited from many of his teachings and can say that he has opened my eyes to things I had never seen before. This memoir will be your guide to spiritual growth based on the teachings of Joe Namath.
The first chapter in the book covers the “Guru” label, which is now often attached to self-proclaimed gurus and religious figures. Namath is no guru. However, he is someone who experienced life first hand and was able to pass that life onto others. Many people have become his students over the years. Some of them have become close friends. I believe Joe Namath could have had a worldwide following if he had not claimed himself to be a guru.
Chapter one discusses his early experiences growing up in an alcoholic family. It is easy to look down on other people and blame them for the choices they make in life. But I believe that this is how we learn to deal with life's situations. We sometimes expect more out of others than we expect from ourselves. We expect more from our leaders than we expect from ourselves.
I also learned that listening is a great way to gain insight into others and into yourself. I recommend this book to anyone who want to gain insight into their own life and to those who want to develop spiritual growth. As you read Joe's stories and follow the advice he gives in each chapter, you will begin to understand what life is all about and why it is worth living.
Namath's stories are inspiring and motivating. He tells of changing himself after being “stuck” in one particular pattern for too long. The realization that he had to let go of the pattern caused great spiritual and personal growth. You will also learn about how to let go of habits, how to develop self-esteem, and how to attract abundance. Through the course of this entertaining and insightful book you will discover how to live a life full of spiritual development.
I particularly like how Namath relates the chapters of the book to the lessons he teaches in the Master Swing. For example, chapter one relates the lesson to his mother's reaction when he was left alone at school one day. As he tried to explain why he was not picking up his school books, his mother told him to just read them and leave. Joe said that his mom just didn't want him to be by himself. So he simply left and picked up the books, not looking back.
This is a great example of how the mind needs to be freed up to allow you to create abundance and live a rich, fulfilled life. It takes effort and patience to let go of patterns, habits, and negative self-talk. You might try to stop yourself in the middle of a negative thought by telling yourself that it will only last for a second and then letting it go. But this only leads to more conditioning and negativity, and so Joe went on to read more books on the subject, absorbed more spiritual growth information, and worked hard to get rid of bad habits and negative thinking.
The Power of Full Awareness is an interesting and inspirational book by Joe Namath. I enjoyed reading it and found it very helpful in improving my self-image and spiritual growth as well. If you are struggling with any habit that is holding you back from getting what you really want out of life, or if you are tired of letting yourself go whenever you have a thought that contradicts your true goals, then this book can help. Namath shows you how to shift your focus and change your perception of the world around you so that you can live an abundant life. I enjoyed this book and would recommend it highly to anyone who wants to take their mind, body, and soul to the next level of success and abundance.
