Thought Revolution: How to Unlock Your Inner Geniusby William A Donius
Synopses & Reviews
Thought Revolution invites readers to unlock their whole brain to change the way they see themselves and find the truth in whatever challenges them. Encompassing twelve years of research, the book takes readers on an unexpected journey that will set them free-and it all begins with moving the pen from one hand to the other. The technique is called "intuitive" or "nondominant" hand writing and is the basis for this revolutionary approach to making lasting life changes. Tapping the non dominant subconscious right brain through nondominant hand writing, or drawing, can act as a direct pipeline to one's inner truth, open up creative problem-solving abilities, and help people think outside the box. Others have reported improvements in relationships, reduction in stress, better physical health, discovery of hidden talents, deeper spiritual awareness, healing from trauma, breakthroughs in career, accessing inner wisdom, and connection with a higher power. Inside Thought Revolution William A. Donius offers the science behind nondominant hand writing and teaches readers ow to incorporate nondominant hand writing in their own lives. Thought-provoking, easy-to-do exercises and prompts help readers connect more fully with the needs of their subconscious right brains and unlock their hidden genius.
This book cites Donius' experience over the past twelve years and with hundreds of interview subjects in demonstrating how to enable the creative, intuitive right hemisphere to weigh in on our thought processes to help us better understand the obstacles that we face and even the lies we may be telling ourselves. Learning to tap into the right brain is similar to learning a new language. But, it is far simpler!

About the Author
William Donius attended Tulane University's A.B. Freeman School of Business and the Kellogg School at Northwestern University. His next thirty years were spent working in both California and Missouri in the corporate world in the areas of management consulting, public relations, health care, television production and banking.
Nearly twenty of Donius' thirty years were engaged in the corporate world at Pulaski Bank in St. Louis, where he led Pulaski through an initial public offering in 1998 and remained for an additional 12 years as Chairman and CEO. During his tenure the bank grew eight-fold in size to $1.4 billion in assets. It was ranked one of the top performing small banks in the country by SNL Financial, voted Best Place to work in St. Louis in 2007 by the St. Louis Business Journal, and received a Torch Award in 2008 from the Better Business Bureau for excellence in ethics and customer service.
During his tenure as CEO of the Bank, Donius was involved in chairing numerous community events and fundraisers, and served on the Regional Business Council, the board of the Missouri Bankers Association, and as Chairman of the national trade group, America's Community Bankers (profit subsidiary). He was a frequent speaker at national banking industry conferences and a contributor to an industry publication, America's Community Banker. He also served as an adjunct faculty member at the National Banking School in Fairfield, CT.
In 2007, the St. Louis Business Journal cited Donius as one of the Most Influential St. Louisans. He also received the prestigious Volunteer of the Year Award in 2007 from the National Association of Philanthropy. In 2008 he was appointed to serve a two-year term on the U.S. Federal Reserve Board-TIAC Council in Washington, D.C. (He had previously served two terms on the national trade group board of America's Community Bankers preceding this group's merger with the American Bankers Association in 2007.) In addition he was named the 2009 Equality Award winner from HRC [Human Rights Campaign] in St. Louis, and the 2009 award recipient from the National Conference for Community and Justice.
Donius has also served on a number of community boards, including those of the St. Louis Art Museum, Barnes Jewish Hospital Foundation, Maryville University, Forest Park Forever and ARCHS (Area Resources for Community Human Services).
At age 50, Donius chose to depart from the corporate world in order to devote full-time energies to his passions for writing, serving on community boards and advocating for human rights issues.
A three-year research project involving hundreds of interviews over the past three years resulted in William Donius' first book, Thought Revolution: How to Unlock the Genius Within (Changing Lives Press: New York, New York, March 2012 release). This book details the methodology Donius used successfully over 12 years in both his personal and professional life to unlock right-brain creativity and intuitive thinking. It begins where other books in the field end, offering a proven, easy methodology for finding one's own creativity by tapping into the right brain literally in order to pull out the information needed to make better decisions in life.
Currently, Donius is also writing for The Huffington Post and advocating for human rights issues in essays, senate testimony and speeches.
