This book is presented as a coaching guide to explain how your author's more than fifty-year personal struggle to find the Holy Grail of personal development, emotional health, and a happier life has come true, as it will for you! Neuroplasticity: Medical research in this relatively new field of study has only recently discovered that we can literally, physically alter the neuro-pathways in our brains and change our life-long negative thinking habits. Thinkiatry's A.N.T. extermination principles and process are now a valid medical research supported self-therapy and coaching objective process millions can discover and use to alter the emotional landscape of their lives for the better, forever. A.N.T. - Automatic Negative Thinking. . . . . . is something all of us do every day; yet, almost all of us are totally and, as you will soon learn, tragically unaware of how this centuries old, life-long, human habit controls our emotional well-being, physical health, and the quality of each individual's day-to-day life. On a broader scale, human ANT colonies, like snowflakes, are unique; dramatically and collectively influencing world politics, governments, economies, religions and the quality of life for billions of people around the world. Based upon the preceding statements, only briefly introducing the importance of ANTS to billions of lives, most would logically expect that they would be a universal core subject of study and discussion for young and old alike in schools, universities, media commentary, and daily human interaction throughout the world. However, the odds are about 99% that you have never heard of an ANT without more than two legs to walk on. To your author's knowledge, after more than fifty years of personal emotional struggle, research and study, we have for centuries ignored our ANTS as nothing more than a function of being alive just like our breathing, heartbeat, and other bodily functions - "It's just the way life is." It's not anymore! The following is merely a partial list of emotional conditions that can be self-treated and significantly reduced, or in some cases eliminated, as we learn to use Thinkiatry's Principles and Process to exterminate our individually unique ANT Colonies to experience lasting emotional health and happiness in our lives: Divorce Weight problems Stress Anxiety Addictions Anger Sadness Hatred Obesity Jealousy Insecurity Bullying Loneliness Arrogance Hypocrisy Fear Become a Thinkiatrist and join the happiest, emotionally healthy people on earth!
Trusted and beloved by readers everywhere for his prosperity classic The Secret of the Ages, Robert Collier takes the next step in Riches Within Your Reach! and explains how to harness mental visualization to achieve financial and professional success.

"A definite purpose, held on to in the face of every discouragement and failure, in spite of all obstacles and opposition, will win no matter what the odds," wrote Robert Collier. And with faith in your own definite purpose, taught the self-help master, there is no limit to what you can accomplish. In every adversity, there lies the seed of an equivalent advantage, and in each defeat, there is a lesson in how to achieve victory next time. This is the message of Riches Within Your Reach!

In 1947, Collier produced Riches Within Your Reach! to assemble his most talked-about works into one simple guide. It features: The God in You (1937); The Magic Word (1940); The Secret of Power (1945); and The Law of Higher Potential (1947).

Together, these pioneering works reveal all facets of one powerful secret: Human beings, since the dawn of history, have used the applied principles of mental visualization to achieve their aims. Many of the world's most successful figures -from Napoleon Bonaparte to Benjamin Franklin to Andrew Carnegie-began their lives at a significant disadvantage, without the wealth or health that many of their peers enjoyed. Yet they were able to triumph and succeed in ways that their contemporaries weren't-by tapping into the infinite power of their own minds. Riches Within Your Reach! not only builds upon this teaching but illuminates Collier's most remarkable lesson ever: that each of us has an equal chance to harness the powers within ourselves to succeed, but first, we must learn how to focus our desires.
