(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) To say it's a lean work is to judge the book by its cover. But How To Plant Positivity: To sow seeds for success in 7 simple chapters isn't the quick read its size would have you believe.

Launched over the weekend, the self-help guide is more of a slow burner. It ought to take you seven weeks to truly grasp its meaning, said author Jenni Eden. ''The idea with the book is that you read a chapter a week. That will take you maybe 20 minutes and then you spend five to ten minutes the next six days focussing on what the chapter was about.'' ''And you read the next chapter the week after and build on the work in the previous chapter.''

So, it's not overnight success or rave reviews off-the-bat Jenni is aiming for “ in that she expects the most informed feedback only after seven weeks after her readers feel themselves becoming happier and manifesting positive changes' in their lives.

''It's little steps,'' she said. When people talk about following their dreams, it's not about having to give up a part of your life cold turkey. ''It's little steps that you refine in order to get the skills and credibility to be able to do what you want to do.'' Jenni, a teacher-turned-artist/ life coach/yoga instructor, has breathed deep of that philosophy for near 15 years. The realisations of self and of the nature of happiness that came to her in that time helped her decide my story, my way would be relevant to somebody who hadn't accessed that information yet'.

''From a small child right up to my 20s in the UK, I was involved with art and painting. And then, after school, I just ended up getting a job and it just took over. I was stuck in that way “ fixed on making money and paying bills and debts“ for a very long time. ''After I came to Oman I got more time to paint and I got peace. That's how I developed so much spiritually and emotionally.''

By 2006, Jenni was a successful artist, but leaving for the UK in 2007 made her a tiny shrimp in a huge pond' and sent her into a depression spiral. She would climb out of it many months later, after mimicking how she felt in Oman “ successful, passionate and abundant' “ and being grateful for what she had. ''The more grateful I was, the more great and full my life was.''

''I had to dig deep and find out what my issues were and unpick them (through the techniques that she shares in this book. I realised that my conscious desires (to be a successful artist) and sub-conscious thoughts (fear of success, failure, of not being good enough) weren't in sync.''

Teaching herself to flip this fear switch' and reprogramming the subconscious to be more in line with success, she took her lessons to anybody who had a dream and felt they were unworthy. Those people who were told no' and believed the no'. Jenni's seven-week Planting Positivity courses, begun shortly after her return to Oman in 2009, have helped several people take drastic steps to alter their lives'.

The book, which contains the concepts refined through these workshops at a fraction of the price (RO7), helps more people access the lessons. The first print run sees 500 copies made available to the reader.

The Kindle edition was released in April. But, Eden said, ''If just one person says to me, it's changed my life, that's mission accomplished for me. Because it's not just one life I've touched, it's a ripple in pond. The positivity
