Argyro Toumazouabout this book: The book gives techniques and exercises for self-help, helping readers to improve their self-observation, concentration, knowledge, awareness; master contemplation, alertness and diligence, confront negative thoughts by uprooting, observation, exaggeration and neutralization, achieve targets through seeding, visualization, creativity, persistence, good habits, affirmation, imprinting, developing intuition, image propping and the importance of will. The techniques and exercises are based on the six laws of the thought and of the mind, including the law of direction and the law of attraction.
• What inspired you to write the book?
I attended a course once and collected handouts. I just wanted to share these handouts, but as they were bulky, I condensed them into a booklet, no more than 64 pages.
• Who are the primary readers of your book?
There is a formidable niche of readers alert to this type of instruction. I have in mind such manuals from very old times. At home we had a collection of a correspondence course obtained by my uncle in the mid-forties. When the paperback version of the book was launched, many readers obtained it spontaneously, before any review or advertisement.
• How long did it take to write it?
I started writing it in August and finished it by October, in 2008. It took longer however to have someone to read it and then to find a publisher. Fortunately, I found an excellent editor for the English version. She paid attention to detail and helped me clarify many points.
• How did you come up with the title?
I chose one that would be as near the aim of the book as possible. The book is based on the idea that our mind power is dynamic and that we can extend it. I shall check Plato's myth, how it relates to the book and may be write a follow up to the first edition.
• Why did you choose this cover?
George Foster is an expert designer and made a best seller cover. I think the cover is matching and is in harmony with the whole concept.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
I am a lawyer, I am not a psychologist. There is of course an affinity between the two in some respects. I wrote both versions Greek and English simultaneously. This helped to put things down as succinctly as possible. For me the hardest part was how to communicate best with the reader and make the reading of the book as easy as possible.
• Did you do research for your book? What did that involve?
I read some other relevant books, but not before writing the book. I thought I had to read more, so that I have in mind what is available. In the past I had a collection of magazines which someone borrowed once but never returned them; so I had no access to some material that might be helpful.
• Did you learn anything from writing the book and what was it?
Learning, taken as any relatively permanent change in behaviour that occurs as a result of experience, is may be something that had an impact on my conduct. The most important concept of the book is 'Create, do not react'. As a rule, I have no difficulty in following this motto. It's most valuable, as far as this is humanly possible. Simply the exceptions may be less. I cannot say I adhere 100% to this rule.
• What do you want to say to your readers?
Knowledge is an excellent companion at all times; therefore if you have the option to possess it, this is an advantage for you.
