How Good Can it Get?
Cynthia Sue LarsonCynthia Sue Larson
Play with Multiple Realities

"Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does.”
-- William James

One of the more interesting aspects of increased awareness of Mandela Effects recently is that as people notice how so many of their memories do not match historical records, greater numbers of people are wondering what is going on. I gave a talk recently to a San Francisco bay area chapter of the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS), where I saw members of the audience were visibly shaken during that evening’s discussion of several examples of Mandela Effects in which such things as movie dialogue, product labels and celebrity deaths have changed to be markedly different than many of us recall.

While most everyone knows that Nelson Mandela has died, controversy exists surrounding exactly when people first heard reputable reports that he’d died. Some of us first heard about Nelson Mandela dying while he was incarcerated on Robben Island decades ago, while others first heard of his death on December 5, 2013. These kinds of examples of celebrities being noticed “Alive Again” after having been reported dead in respected newspapers, magazines and on television has been going on for at least decades now, with surveys showing people remembering many people having died who subsequently show up alive and well.

While some people notice something odd about a person being alive again who definitely died before, others are noticing seemingly inexplicable changes in movie dialogue, song lyrics, product names, and text in books. I’ve noticed all these and much more, which has been the point of my work with the realityshifters ezine, website, my books, articles, talks, and workshops on these topics over the years.

I invite you as you read through the reality shift experiences in this month’s issue of RealityShifters to encourage your imagination to consider ways you might enjoy playing with multiple possible realities. Think of it as being your very own ‘how good can it get?’ coach. It’s fun to find out how good your life can get in every possible way!

Mandela Effects, Reality Shifts, and Quantum
Mandela Effects, Reality Shifts, and Quantum Jumps

"Mandela Effect" is the recent popular name for the phenomenon when people notice alternate histories. Increasing awareness of alternate histories indicates there may not be one absolute reality--as it begins to seem much more likely that we each experience something akin to a local reality. Quantum physics depends upon consciousness, and participation by an observer—leaving us to ponder the exact nature of consciousness, and how we can observe the observer. Rather than assuming there is some objective truth "out there," we see increasing evidence that there may be many possible truths, many possible realities.


Five Gifts of Wisdom with Dr. Laurie Nadel
on Living the Quantum Dream with Cynthia Sue Larson

Dr. Laurie Nadel talks with Cynthia Sue Larson about five gifts of uncommon wisdom that can help ease our way through troubling times. Dr. Nadel discusses some of her most extraordinary intuitive experiences, including communications with ghosts and a south American shaman on the other side of the world. Laurie shares her experiences dealing with personal loss following cataclysmic events where one feels one’s life has been shattered, and shares the power and value of humility, patience, empathy, forgiveness, and growth–and the value of talking with people following traumatic events. Psychologist and media expert Dr. Laurie Nadel has offices in New York City and Miami, and has run a program for teenagers whose fathers were killed in the 9/11 World Trade Center attacks. Her four-time best-selling book, “Sixth Sense: Unlocking Your Ultimate Mind Power” is now an audiobook available on amazon, Audible, and iTunes. The author of six books, Dr. Nadel edited Dan Rather’s ebook, “Lessons from the Field: Everything I Learned About Life I Learned from Reporting.” Her next book, “The Five Gifts: Uncommon Wisdom for Troubling Times,” will be published next year. She blogs for Huffington Post.

Many Possible Realities and Mandela Effect
When I first began studying the field of quantum jumping, reality shifts, and the Mandela Effect back in the 1990s, I was noticing things appearing, disappearing, transforming, and transporting--and the only thing that matched the kind of bizarre stuff I was seeing was to consider the radical viewpoint that maybe quantum behavior doesn't just happen in the so called "quantum realm." I've been presenting the viewpoint in my books Reality Shifts and Quantum Jumps that maybe there is no 'quantum realm.' Maybe everything is essentially quantum, and we usually just don't notice it. While it may seem bizarre to imagine that you and I and everyone and everything exists in what can be described as a 'superposition of states,' a growing number of physicists believes that this is precisely what is going on. So, rather than there just being one 'true reality' at any given moment, we can imagine that each moment consists of an infinite range of possibilities, with many possible me's and many possible you's. This idea of existing in a superposition of states with many possible variations of ourselves and everyone and everything else around us is precisely the idea behind why placebos have become so remarkably effective in recent years. Many scientists have noted with wonderment that efficacy of placebos--which can be like a saline solution, sugar pill, or 'sham' surgery--has doubled over the past few decades. Many people can even feel the benefit from telling themselves, for example, that they got a good night's sleep, even if in truth it was one of the most interrupted nights of sleep they've ever had, and astonishingly they will respond on cognitive and motor skill tests just as well as if they really did get a good night's sleep. The Placebo Effect thus shows us how we can access the realm of alternative possible realities, by doing what American psychologist William James suggested, and acting as if we're in the reality we require. So you can, for example, simply tell yourself that you've had a good night's sleep, and connect with the reality in which that was in fact true. And you can feel well-rested, just as if you actually did get one of your best night's of sleep ever. Scientific evidence for the existence of such things as 'placebo sleep' and 'placebo exercise' have been proven true in recent years, in studies such as Placebo Sleep Affects Cognitive Functioning. A study of hotel housekeepers who were informed that doing their regular work activities was good exercise found that those workers scored higher on health indicators than a group of similar workers who had not been told they were getting on-the-job work-outs. What's being found to be consistently proven true is that any time people are informed by someone they respect that some kind of "treatment" is going to work, it probably will. I include summaries of numerous such studies in my book, Quantum Jumps, along with laboratory-proven simple things you can do to feel reduced pain, greater intellectual ability, improved willpower, and better relationships.

The Quantum Paradigm and Challenging the Objectivity Assumption

by George Weissmann and Cynthia Sue Larson

Cosmos & History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy, Vol 13, No 2 (2017)
Most interpretations of quantum theory fail to provide a fundamental, complete, self-consistent account of nature describing physical reality itself, as opposed to merely yielding predictions about results of experiments and observations. A paradigm providing a self-consistent foundation for quantum theory and a description of the reality it refers to, generalized to a worldview, is a Quantum Paradigm, where ‘paradigm' is defined as structure of experiential reality. We assert that the fundamental obstruction in the quest for a quantum paradigm is the assumption of objectivity. The subject-object distinction, drawn within experience, has within the natural sciences degenerated into a dichotomy-an absolute split into separate realms-with scientists adopting the classical paradigm where the object pole of experience ("objective reality") can be studied independently from the subject pole ("the experiencer"), with a presupposition that this procedure yields a fundamental description of nature. In fact, the subjective is often eliminated altogether as a fundamental category, and reduced to an epiphenomenon of objective processes. We claim this objectivity assumption precludes a full comprehension and a paradox-free formulation of quantum theory. By challenging this presupposition, i.e. leaving the question open, a coherent understanding of quantum nature falls naturally into place, providing appropriate foundation for quantum theory and an associated world-view. The resulting Quantum Paradigm is "realist" in the sense that it provides a description of what is actually happening: namely the arena of all happening is Mind or Consciousness-from which mind and matter, subject and object, individual and collective, and time and space co-dependently arise. The subject matter of quantum theory then becomes the fundamental mind-function of distinction ("measurement"), resulting in information and its statistical correlations. The message of quantum mechanics is surprising: the basic components of objects-the particles, electrons, quarks, etc.-cannot be thought of as ‘self-existent'. The reality that they, and hence all objects, are components of is ‘empirical reality', of experience."The universe begins to look more like a great thought than a great machine."-James Jeans Anomalous phenomena such as ESP and psychokinesis, collective consciousness, and synchronicity that are considered impossible in the context of the classical paradigm, fit naturally in, and can in turn provide evidence for the Quantum Paradigm. Spirituality and science are shown to be complementary approaches referring to the same reality, Mind, while each discipline retains its integrity. The Quantum Paradigm can be intellectually comprehended, as well as embodied: one can live in quantum reality. A good metaphor for this is "life as a dream": with no "real" objects as distinguished from experienced objects. Experience is "empty" of self-nature in the Buddhist sense, with everything interconnected and co-dependently arising. Experiencing the world by "embodying the Quantum Paradigm" is transformative, healing, and an antidote to alienation resulting from embodying the classical paradigm. Embodying the Quantum Paradigm and living in the Oneness of all creation can help humanity-increasingly lost in the materialism and individualism reinforced by our embodiment of the classical paradigm-and restore intimate connection and harmony with Spirit, Nature and fellow humans; we need such a transformation to survive and thrive in our technological society.

Awoken at the Wheel when Wipers Went On—by Themselves!
Rennes, France

I have just watched your Anthony Chene interview and was reminded by your comment on surviving car accidents, of another incident that happened to me in the late 1990’s. Straight after work on a Friday @ 4.00pm to start my 3 week annual vacation, I drove 5 hours to a southern English ferry port to board a fast ferry to France which took about 2 hours. I felt drained like a battery after the ferry trip which was unusual for me. After disembarking at around mid-night, I continued my journey in my car, I was heading for Morocco. After another two hours on the road I was completely unaware that I was falling asleep at the wheel [but in hindsight I can now recollect what that feels like]. I did fall asleep, completely unconscious and I have no idea for how long. Now the strangeness. I was awoken, to find myself driving my car [gosh !] I was awoken by my windscreen wipers that came on and distracted me from my sleep. I can give you an absolute guarantee that I did not switch them on because both of my hands were still on the steering wheel when I awoke. It was a bit of a jolt. I knew some force had protected me and that it was not my time yet, but it all really did happen. I had a brew up, opened all the windows for cold fresh air and played a tape of Motorhead's Overkill very loudly ! twice ! before finding an aire to sleep for a few hours. I safely came home 3 weeks later. When I think about it, I have quite a few stories. The most recent, and this has happened a few times ~ when I am in a shop I can sometimes find myself been pushed [in a completely positive way] in a certain direction until I have reached a certain area. If I leave I am taken back. I live in a farmhouse [apparently unending !] renovation project with a big piece of land. I was 'forced' to view and buy another wheelbarrow which I absolutely do need for practical reasons and it was half the price of all others that I had looked at weeks before. In-fact I did not fully know why I was being pushed around the first time, so went back the next day and the same energy appeared and guided. Years previously I suddenly experienced columns of energy in Swanage on the south coast of England [again I was on holiday]. I had an overwhelming urge to stand in them with my arms stretched upwards and let it flow through me in the middle of a busy high street, much to the embarrassment of my travelling companion. 10 minutes later I was in a crystal shop having never had any knowledge or interest in crystals previously. The whole shop had an electricity to it and I could really feel different energy in different crystals. I bought a lot that I was attracted too and placed them in the corners of each room at home [again being physically guided] I could feel the whole house shimmer in energy as it was 'gridded'. I have not felt that experience since and I am now an amethyst addict. I find it just so soothing and calming. A week later I was in a discount book shop and had my hand guided under a table to a stack of books which could not be seen. I pulled one out ~ it was a very nice cheap hard back book on crystals. I have been back to Swanage twice, but never found those columns of energy again. Sometimes I can feel waves of highly charged "do it" energy which I always follow and sometimes I can feel being held back [which I try to force my way past ! but it does not work ...] Most recently I was planting 53 bamboos in solid clay before Xmas with a windchill factor of -3 deg C. I was slowly losing it it but was unaware because my body temperature and sugar level was dropping, but I was determined to finish the job. When I came inside I was marched around the kitchen [quite a large room] until I was standing at the pendulum wall clock. I was quite disappointed because it has stopped. I said what does that mean? Straight back, I got it "STOP !" I was being reined in again. I swung the pendulum and it continued as before.

Note from Cynthia: Thank you so very much for taking time to share your experience being awoken by your car's windshield wipers going on, after having fallen asleep at the wheel--how wonderful that the windshield wipers went on 'by themselves' just at such a most opportune time, so you could survive the drive and live to tell about this experience! I love your description of finding and feeling energy currents, with a sense of them guiding you through a shop. This brings to mind a sense of some kind of awareness of having traveled that way before, perhaps in an adjacent reality--and I've had numerous such experiences myself, of feeling guided to find things I'd surely have never found otherwise--such as the time I followed the scent of lavender around a book shop, and 'found it' when I removed a book about unicorns, opening it to see the words describing how lavender is their favorite scent! (I share this experience in my book, Reality Shifts.) And I am glad to hear you had the good sense to interpret the sign to "Stop!" your ambitious winter digging project in fiercely cold conditions. I really appreciate how your experiences provide such clear reminders for us to stay attuned to recognizing we are simultaneously 'mortal egoic beings' and 'infinite, eternal beings'--and quite well-equipped to walk with feet in both worlds.


The Hula Hoop Gift and Friend My Daughter Doesn’t Remember
Alfter, Germany

A few years ago our daughter gave me a bright pink and blue hula hoop. It was very big and quite heavy, and it was for doing gymnastics. I used it a few times, but then lost interest in it, and gave it away. A few months ago, I told her that I had given away the birthday present she had given me and said I was sorry. She was very surprised, and said she had never given me a hula hoop at all! Another time I asked our daughter if she remembered one of her friends. They were both about 8 years old at the time, and she lived very close to us. She was Greek and had very long, thick black hair and they saw each other nearly every day. Her father was our doctor. Our daughter looked puzzled, and said she couldn't remember anyone like that at all. I was very surprised, but then I thought about reality shifts. There is also that interesting phrase: the memory plays tricks on one! I think we can understand that phrase very much better nowadays!

Note from Cynthia: I love how considering both of these experiences--the hula hoop gift that you remember your daughter giving you, that she doesn't recall, and your daughter's Greek friend that you remember but your daughter does not--are the kind of thing many people disregard as "another case of memory playing tricks on us." Yet, when we consider the sorts of changes that many of us have noticed, there is another possible explanation. And I've noticed that most families have some rather startling discrepancies like these in memories of significant events in their pasts--which is exactly what we'd expect if so many of us are experiencing shifts in reality, Mandela Effects, and quantum jumps.

Strange Happenings and Time Changes in my Small Town
Crawfordsville, Indiana, USA

I'm really not sure where to begin, although I will say I also remember Nelson Mandela dying back in the 80's, but getting back to myself I am having a hard time coming to grips with something I have experienced just a couple of weeks ago on the 14th of March. I'm the type of person who has a open mind concept on a lot of things and possibilities, though I never thought that I would experience something as wild as a possible,"quantum jump.” I am 50 years in age, no alcohol or drug usage, and healthy. No history of mental instabilities, although sleep deprivation might be something I suffer from the most at the moment, as I have recently enrolled to college to get my AS degree in computer sciences/IT. On the nights when I can, or do sleep, when I'm at the threshold of falling off, a blinding flash-cube like light happens in an instant, then I'm out. I wake up everyday, at the exact same time everyday, very much like in the movie, Groundhog Day. Although, the day’s events are all different, not like the movie. March14th, started out like every other day; I was up at 09:37am without any alarm set, had my morning coffee, and got ready to do my things. I felt that day was different, I could feel something just wasn't right about the day. I had a few errands to run, and left home around 1pm to go pay a cell phone and electric bill, which would normally be done online, but I wanted to do something different that day. I noticed when I left home, there were people out and about as normal, but hardly anyone was out and about on the roads or streets. It was a cloudless day, nice and 55 degrees, beautiful day. Still, something felt ominous. For a Tuesday, midday traffic is usually heavy here where I live. It’s not a big town, but still busy. I'm a very observant type of person; I notice things around me in detail. That day seemed like it was made like a movie, and I noticed people were watching me, not just the occasional glance or look-over from a car, but intensely staring. Why? I have no clue. Upon arriving at the cell phone carrier's office to pay my bill, I normally have the same person there I deal with, but she was not there that day, and neither were any of the regulars that work there. There is usually a crew of six managers or so, but today, everyone was different. I paid it no attention really, paid my bill and left. Normally this trip there and complete takes 20 minutes, but upon glancing at my receipt I noticed it was 2:37pm. How could this have taken an hour and forty minutes to do a 20 minute errand? Still, hardly anyone out of the roads, I left and headed over to where I pay my electric bill, which is only about a ten minute drive between places. I get there, go inside and same thing: a new crew of people I've never seen before. The woman who always had helped me before had worked there for years. Not today, in fact no of the clerks there were the same people. At this point I determined something was up, I looked at the receipt in the car, the time stamped on it was 4:37pm. Another slip in time. I started looking around to notice that some people had stopped outside of the place I just paid the electric bill. I stopped a guy and asked if he had the time, and he replied it was 4:37pm. The guy stood there and watched as I got back in my car and left, and he was still standing there after I even waited for a stop-light to change, and then as I travelled on down the road, he never went in, and still stood there facing the door. Now, I'm beginning to think this is some twilight-zone type behavior at this point. As I'm driving down the highway back home, I'm nearly involved in a collision with an oncoming driver who crossed the centerline, and actually does hit the car behind me, with what looked like heavy damage, parts going every place. I pull over to call 911, but for some reason, I have no working cell phone after just paying my bill, such irony. I get out to check the other drivers, and I'm shocked at what is happening, both drivers are driving off after going off the road after colliding, I see no parts laying in the road, and from what I could see of the car that was traveling behind me to start with, no damage at all. Here is the weirdest they both drive away as if both idiotic drivers are committing a double hit and run at the same time here, they both change directions from which they were both going to start with, ..with the person who crossed the centerline to start with now back behind my car, but he doesn't move! The person is waiting for me to get back in my car to leave! It is like that chain of events, though altered a little, had to stay the same the rest of the way. I had noticed when getting back in my car, the drivers up ahead of me who were about a quarter of a mile away who should have gone on through the stoplight, where stopped, but the light was green. This is all too much for me, and I know what I saw, I still cannot explain the time lost, or the nutty way people were acting, it was surreal, and the whole time people are looking at me. I race home, knowing that something is out of whack, I walk in the house here, and first thing I notice is the time, 2:37 pm. And now my cell phone is working, I immediately call a local weather-time number to check the time, 2:37pm, check the computer, 2:37pm. I sit down and look at the receipts from the bills I just paid, 2:37 pm, and 4:37pm. At this point now it is almost 3pm by the clocks in my house, and everywhere else, yet I have a receipt, on paper, showing 4:37pm, on the 14th, of March, 2017. How could this be? Impossible. At this point thoughts are racing and I'm getting confused. I turn on the police scanner to listen for anything that might be going on and also check the news. I feel exhausted, like I've just worked an eight hour shift, and fall asleep in the chair. I wake up later to the 11pm news playing, to hear of an accident that claimed two people's lives, the very same place I was at earlier in the day. I have not been able to get this out of my head since, feeling horrible that I possibly could have stopped it, but then again, it could have been me who died, the news station didn't show the vehicles involved. I didn't sleep the rest of the night, and now the memories of that day seems vague. The next day, on the 15th, I go back to where I paid my bills, and the normal people are back to working as they had been and I double checked my status on the things I paid on at both places, both current and paid on the 14th, same times. I really don't know what to think of this, but the thought of it has not left my mind, and the "What Ifs" are playing over and over. Here is the icing on the cake! Another strange thing is that I had asked the clerks at the billing offices if they had seen or heard of an accident the day before, and no one knew what I was talking about. Rechecked my local news website looking for the info on the crash, and nothing! Even had my Nephew who is a County Sheriff check the log, nothing. But still have a ghostly electric bill receipt showing the time paid at 4:37pm.

Note from Cynthia: Thanks so much for sharing the events from your recent day, involving your observations of changes in numbers of people out and about, and the staff at both your phone company and the electric utility--not to mention the bizarre situation involving the vehicular traffic incident. Your experiences sound quite similar to the types of reality shifts many people are experiencing, including the aspect of paying more close attention and noticing even further oddities (such as news of a terrible crash, followed by no trace of news of any such thing). The changes in experience of time are also commonly experienced--as if one is slipping to and fro through various adjacent parallel realities. Some people theorize that these sorts of experiences may be heightened on days when we are at risk of being involved in a dangerous accident--which does seem like something you averted, possibly by skipping and dancing through parallel adjacent realities where that accident didn't exist until life came to feel more like normal again.


(4) Questions and Answers

Reality Shifts
Hi Cynthia,
Hope this email finds you well. I was just wondering if you could in your own beautiful words define in lay terms what "consciousness" is in the context of Reality shift (QJ). I really appreciate it. Thank you. Regards,
— Mataz

Dear Mataz,
Thanks for this question--which gets to the very heart of how and why we experience reality shifts and quantum jumps. From this context, 'consciousness' is the essence of how one identifies as oneself amidst a history of interrelatedness that, through observing, brings forth a world.
With love and thanks,
— Cynthia


Hi Cynthia,
I saw you on Gaia and immediately purchased your book about reality shifts. Of all my hundreds of books purchased since spiritually awakening, I feel it may be one of the most important. Thank you. Fifteen years ago, while absentmindedly doodling, I would look down and see I had written the word "reality" over and over. I kept thinking how strange this was. It has continued on, and your book totally opened my eyes about what this might mean. What was a mystery has an answer. Thank you again. So many shifts. Latest was taking my cat Abbey in to trim her claws. They like to have proof of vaccinations, I gave the paper to a young high school age employee who took it to make a copy to keep on file. They brought Abbey back, I asked if they could give me back the paper, an older manager said he had given it to me. In disbelief I found it in back my purse! This did not happen! I believe strong intention/attention with vivid imagery and intense feeling create reality. Happens over and over, but I have a question. If you live in a house with say 4 others, does the projection of all 4 intermingle to create what occurs. Can one person's thoughts dominate others in the common shared reality. I feel confident about creating my own reality, but how does this play out with others creating theirs. Which reality happens in a shared environment? You radiate a calm and wise energy. Once again, my appreciation and gratitude for your work. Peace and love,
— Jane

Dear Jane,
Thank you for your lovely email, and for sharing with me your experience finding the proof of your cat's vaccinations in your purse when the veterinarian had not yet handed it back to you! This is an excellent example of a reality shift that feels astonishing to you--since from your point of view, it's as if that document teleported into your purse--yet you can appreciate how most likely the older manager's point of view, he did hand the paper back to you. This ties in with the question you ask about what happens when your experiences of events interact with those of other experiencers. Just as you recently noticed at the veterinarian's office with your cat and the teleporting document, different experiencers have different sequences of events. There is thus no "single truth" nor one single reality, but rather a multitude of unfolding events where it really can be possible that two people disagree about what just happened, and both are correct. I co-authored a paper on this topic for a conference:
When Worlds Collide

With love and thanks,
— Cynthia


Dear Cynthia,
Thank you for your latest addition of your monthly newsletter. I Love that you write "we are not our bodies or our circumstances," because I know we are that which is beyond these things, that which needs none of these things to be. Awareness, Consciousness, Energy, Beingness, Isness. I once had an experience where one moment I was connected to the room I was in; I saw people, chairs, the room, etc. and the next moment, all I saw was light, fast moving particles of brilliant light. There was no room, no people, nothing other than this experience of brilliance, light, high vibration, energy in movement. Even my sense of self was gone. There was an absence of separation from that which is all. It felt enlivening. Energizing. I have had experiences of being outside of myself, watching myself and others but feeling unbound by it. Separate from it. Experiences of hearing other's thoughts before they speak them aloud. Seeing images superimposed over what was perceived as reality, so much so, that I found it difficult to perceive which experience was actually happening. People coming to me and speaking to me as if they were actually there, present with me, though I knew their physical bodies were elsewhere. Who I was speaking with, connecting to, felt so very real, tactile at the time. Intense energy coursing through me and felt my body shifting, my features changing into something other than they were. I panicked with this last one and commanded the energy to stop and it did. But, here's the thing, I have never been able to predict when these things will occur. I am curious, have you? What do you consider the things I describe? Wishing you an amazing day,
— Nicole

Dear Nicole,
Thanks so much for writing to me with this intriguing question! Those things you describe sound to me to be completely normal when one is primarily attuned with identifying as being 'infinite, eternal self.' Yes, I've also had similar experiences to those you describe, and when such things began happening with me, I wouldn't have been able to predict that such things were about to start happening for me. I asked for and received what you might consider to be 'customized settings' by which high sense perception experiences don't barge so much into my everyday reality, but instead retain my sense of 'mortal egoic self' while simultaneously also keeping connection to my 'infinite eternal self.' I thus can move through life with 'feet in both worlds' which to me feels like lucid living, as I describe in my book, Reality Shifts: When Consciousness Changes the Physical World.
lots of love and thanks,
— Cynthia

Unlock the Power of Less—and Imagine More than You Ever Imagined

by Scott Sonenshein

Stretch Your Resources and Make Your Dreams Come True

Who hasn't experienced that "If only" sinking feeling, while facing a situation where it seemed clear that having a few more resources could save the day. And when taken beyond any simple situation and extended to one's whole life, it might feel easy to believe that life would be a whole lot better with more money, more resources, more people helping, etc. It may come as a shock, then, to read reports from people who not only merely manage to survive, but have actually found ways to thrive working with minimal amounts of money, resources, and assistance. And it may come as further surprise to discover we can learn to improve our ability to stretch our resources, for a lifetime of increased success. One key to success in stretching comes from diversification--from benefitting from the breadth and depth of our skills, interests, passions, and expertise. Clearly, there is benefit from finding some inner sense of unification amongst all the many "hats" a person has worn, so that when opportunity knocks and a need arises, for example, for the best person to step forward to fix the Hubble telescope, engineer and surgeon Story Musgrave was clearly the best choice. Americans love rags-to-riches stories, and Stretch is full of them! From the moviemaker who created the film, El Mariachi, on a budget of $7,000 that went on to earn over $2 million at the box office, to beer maker Dick Yuengling's business thriving by keeping costs down by purchasing factories, equipment and market shares at bargain rates. While frugality can often provide a road to success, Sonenshein is quick to point out the dangers of going too far into cheapskate territory--and how to know the difference. Essentially, cheapskates feel pain when spending money, whereas frugal folk (who often end up with winning businesses) take pleasure from saving money. Since most of the fascinating case histories provided in Stretch are from the business world, this is an excellent book for anyone seeking success in their work and career in particular, as well as in life in general. I appreciate the way the people profiled come from many walks of life, helping readers gain a better sense of how to discover where one best fits in, and how one's personal interests can help clarify which directions to stretch. Highly recommended!
