Historical events, ideas, words, and numbers are connected to one another not by chance but in a way that lies below the surface. The number four provides this connection—from the 4/4 time of rock and roll of the Beatles and Bob Dylan, the Vietnam War, Lou Gehrig, all the way to lives of Muhammad, Jesus Christ, the Buddha, and Moses. In Positively 4th Street, author Dr. Joshua Simon offers a spiritual journey, an awakening of the soul. He stimulates you to think about your own experiences and relationships and wonder why you believe whatever it is you believe.
Simon offers real solutions to perhaps the two most common problems: thinking that you are not good enough and procrastination. The key to solving these problems is to get better at following the four bases of the Golden Rule: (1) be aware of and sensitive to how your actions affect the feelings of others; (2) don’t do for others what others can do for themselves; (3) say no and set limits with those who act selfishly; and (4) never judge others to be undeserving of your kindness or generosity.
