The First Thirty Seconds

This book offers thoughts and prompts for individual reflection, change, and growth. In a unique format, it has been described as "Twitter-style". It is applicable to almost any adult who wants greater consciousness.

The First Thirty Seconds offers suggestive prompts for improving the management of one's behavior, thoughts, emotions, and relationships. It is presented in a unique format juxtaposing a relevant concept with a suggestion for further reflection. The result is a book that is effective as a personal growth resource and a library of thoughtful guidance.

Here is a book that covers nine aspects of the human condition, from character to spirit to feelings. Each category contains multiple examples with each example split between a thought and accompanying reflection.

Each thought is simple, containing at most three or four sentences yet the concepts these simple sentences explore can promote hours of reflection. As a sign post, the reflections point the reader in the direction of self discovery.

The whole trick of this book is that it explores the human condition in a simple and enjoyable way. The joy is in the effortless way the author leads you to self discovery.

Growth and vegetation happen more in valleys than on mountaintops.
It is the same in our human experience; the pleasing mountaintops are exhilarating and the view is magnificent yet growth occurs in the painful valleys.

What discomfort must I endure now
so I can enjoy the mountaintop later?

Total Inspiration, September 24, 2009
By B. Davis "crazy about books" (Beautiful Northwest USA)

I am completely delighted with this book of inspiration. Each page provides the reader with an insightful and life changing thought, with a reflection after each. It's an easy to read book which doesn't take a lot of time out of busy lives. I read one or two pages every day and try to apply what I've read to my life. Chapters include: Thoughts; Feelings; Relationships; Power; Living Ideas; Character; Spirit; and much more. It is the perfect book for anyone who is looking for the motivation to improve their life.

Expanded Consciousness
By Michael Fiore

With 'The First Thirty Seconds', Stephen Armstrong has crafted an insightful and inspirational collection of thoughts and reflections to stimulate the hearts and minds of his readers. The book can also serve as a therapeutic catalyst for personal growth. Stephen's reflections on life, love, personal development, ethics, and the life cycle capture the wisdom of his life experience and professional work as a psychotherapist. I highly recommend this book to anyone who craves the expansion of his or her consciousness
