An Interview With David, On How His #1 Best Selling Book Became A Reality?
I recently had the pleasure of interviewing David Essel, M.S. Here is that interview.
MCW: In one sense, the title of your book says it all, but there are so many disciplines, practices and books that champion positive thinking. For the readers of our publication, how would you describe the central message of what your book is about?
DE: In all reality, we’ve been lied to. Maybe not on purpose, but that’s to be debated. When I decided to write the book, it was due to the fact that so many people have been contacting me as a counselor and coach, asking me what they were doing wrong regarding affirmations, vision boards and more. After all they said, according to books like the law of attraction and others, “all we need to do is ask and we shall receive: Ask the universe for what you desire and it must conspire to bring you exactly what you need.”
But it wasn’t working for them. If these books were selling millions of copies and everyone was getting rich, losing pounds, and finding the love of their life by conspiring with the universe to have it happen, why wasn’t it happening for them? So my book was written as a book of hope to dispel the illusion, the fantastical thinking, that your thoughts are powerful enough to to bring miracle like events into your life. And I am a huge fan of miracles.
But seriously, after 27 years as a national radio host, interviewing people like Suze Orman, Deepak Chopra, Wayne Dyer, athletes, rock stars, Not one of them ever told me that they created an incredibly successful life by their thoughts. I’m a huge fan of positive thinking! I devote the first hour of every day to affirmations, journaling, gratitude, prayer and meditation, but the ridiculous promises of these books is what sent me over the edge.
Just as I sat down to write the book, I reached out to six friends of mine who are New York Times best-selling authors and ask them if they had any words of wisdom, or would they support me with my venture. After describing in an email what my book was all about, all six individuals responded within 24 hours, “David thank God someone is writing the truth about success and the myth of positive thinking.” From there, I was off.
“This book should be read by every person who has ever achieved authentic success and by those who yearn to know the real way there.

“Through his book ‘Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…’ David asks us to put our attention on the importance of faith (love) over fear. Through action steps, not just our thoughts, we learn to be able to sit with our discomfort without fear in order to learn and grow from the experience. This gives meaning to our suffering and allows us to help others. By choosing love we effectively walk through the fire, not around it, and in doing so empower ourselves to limitless heights.”
“David’s new book is going to finally help wake this world up to what it REALLY takes to create lasting success in any area of your life. Enough of the “intentions, affirmations and wishes for success!” In these pages you will find the path to the life you truly desire, the same path I took to go from foreclosure to millionaire. ‘Positive Thinking will NEVER change your Life…’ will become the new “bible” for success.

“David nails it in his new book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…..But This Book Will!” ! A great read to re-train your thinking habits and achieve your goals!”
“I always say, “My dreams inspire my direction, but my footsteps take me there.” David Essel has done a great job of outlining exactly what it takes to make your dreams come true in his new book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…… But This Book will!”
Relying solely upon a vision board is not only ineffective, it can make you vulnerable to snake oil salesman who are willing to play into your naivety and vulnerability for their own gain. Over the past two decades, I’ve seen and heard of some heartbreaking stories of dreamers being preyed upon.
However, dreamers who are doers, with wisdom and right action as their companions, gain strength with each footstep, are not easily fooled or taken advantage of and can create the life of their dreams. That process of becoming the true you that you’ve always wanted to be is irresistible and attractive to other dreamer/doers because the greatest achievements are gained through dream/doer partnerships!
Great book, David. Loved dreaming/doing and partnering with you!”
“A FAMILY AFFAIR! First, I am honored to be able to call David Essel a great friend. He has always there with words of encouragement and perhaps more importantly a plan for making my life better.
I enrolled in one of David’s seminars crafted from his powerful book ‘Positive Thinking will Never Change Your Life….But This book Will!’ with my three boys, and the end result was impactful beyond my wildest imagination.
By incorporating David’s techniques, we all gave our dreams wings! Those dreams took on many forms which include: my youngest pursuing a pro surfing career in Hawaii ~~ my oldest attending film school and now a successful music video producer ~~ with my middle son also behind the camera for a local television news station. As for Dad, he’s happy we all took David Essel’s advice and took the ACTION steps NECESSARY to make a difference in our lives!”

When he finds something that is not working IN THE WORLD OF GOAL ACHIEVEMENT, he finds a way to make it work. In his new ground breaking book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…” he has put together the connection of simply having a positive belief to moving to positive action. Everyone who follows his advice in these pages, will finally find the success they are looking for. Go.”
“While working on David’s new book, “Positive Thinking Will Never Change Your Life…..But This Book Will!”, I was inspired to shed unwanted pounds that I had carried for 10 years. Due to back injuries, I am not able work out, but following the principles in this book I have gotten rid of 18 lbs. in three months! 28 lbs. to go and I know I can do it now. This book will rock your world! Thank you so much David Essel!”
“Over the years, many people have asked me ‘So, what does your brother do?’ My response is always the same: he accepts, loves, motivates, and guides people to better themselves and their environment. I am truly blessed to have David as my brother for so many reasons.
When I started my business in 1994, I can honestly say there is absolutely no chance it would have succeeded without his love, understanding, business knowledge and guidance. While it is true that he is an incredible motivational speaker, author, talkshow host, adjunct professor, minister, etc, etc., I believe the true beauty of my brother is his soul, and his love for every person regardless of their socioeconomic, religious, ethnic, sexual orientation, or other personal situations or traits.
My hope is that the billions of people that read this book are touched in a positive way, realizing that the only real “secret” to positive personal growth and success is in the commitment, work, daily writing and repetition, as David so expertly details & outlines as his recipe for success!
Congratulations on an inspiring and fearlessly groundbreaking book! I love you my brother!”
