This book contains some profound methods to improve your thinking and improve your life. I am still working through this book, yet already I have successfully used some of the concepts.
For example, there is a chapter about asking yourself the right questions, which can instantly change you into a more positive and empowering state, rather than feel victimized as people often do by adversity.
I used the transformative language technique to resolve a situation where I was angered by the behavior of an associate. Through using the word disenchanted instead of angry to describe how I felt, I immediately lessened the emotional intensity of the situation, and was ultimately able to resolve the situation peacefully.
This book also contains practical and powerful NLP techniques, such as repatterning and swish technique. While it may be true to say that some of Robbins work is derivative of the works of Erickson, Bandler and Grinder I have rarely seen the material presented in such a user friendly way. There truly is magic in these concepts.
If you can imagine leading a better and more effective life the concepts in this book will show you the way.
What I particularly appreciate about this book is how well written it is. It has a really flowing easy to read style. I highly recommend this book, and I have a great deal of respect for the writer after reading it.
I hope you find this review helpful.
Conversely, Robbins is as enjoyable to read as he is to listen to. He offers basic NLP techniques (he calls it NAC) and I agree with Tony that the key for long lasting results is to practice these techniques, to condition your mind with neuro associative techniques.
Perhaps the best key is to model other successful people. This can speed your success rate. The goal setting workshop is powerful.
Awaken The Giant is an outstanding book that can help you reach your dreams.
-Let's start with the mindset of these books. He promotes a super achiever kind of hyper-doer attitude. I would instead opt for being at peace with myself--HERE & NOW. Learning to BE. Not just be a doer. Does that mean being complacent? NO! It means you can set goals but it has nothing to do with your self-acceptance and daily joy.
-He uses this Pain/Pleasure principal to motivate you. That is a highly flawed system. It is based on causing stress on yourself and motivating you through discomfort. Has anyone stopped to think that one can achieve goals through peace and discipline. It's not motivation through pain/pleasure we need, it's learning to deal with our AVERSION to discomfort that holds many of us back. Facing that with persevearance and wisdom is the only way to deal with that-not gimmicky NAC.
-It is wrong to create MUSTS as he teaches. That causes people to be stressed out and to be attatched and anxious to things. You cannot DEMAND change of yourself. This again is based on the erroneous idea that we're so highly flawed we need to whip ourselves to grow. Not true. Better to learn Positive motivation skills based on learning to enjoy the Process not just the outcome.Read more ›
Also, don't let the negative people who talk down about this man and his work discourage you. Most of those people did not put in the work needed to fulfill the results they truly wanted, so instead they say and wrote bad things about this man's great work.
However, if you are looking for a way and new ideas to improve different areas of your life, I would highly recommend this book along with Tony's other great products.
Know that this isn't an 'End All Be All' book. There is no such thing.
People have this idea that there is only one book, one course, one diet or one program that is going to be the secret to their success.
When looking at all the action steps in this book, they think "How long do I have to do these for?"
I always say, until you find something better!
Let's say you wanted six-pack abs, and so you worked out extremely hard and finally reached your goal...... now that you have them you can go back to sitting on the couch eating potato chips right?
Of course not!
Every hour of every day of every month of every year, you are maintaining those six-pack abs. You stop maintaining them and they're gone!
This book provides you great insights and ideas on overcoming and achieving the things you want in life. He gives you the tools and shows you how to use them, now it's up to you to ACTUALLY use them!
Is Tony a salesman? Of course!
So are you! I would hope.
When you go to a job interview, if you lack in selling the employer on yourself, you're not getting the job! Simple as that.
So if you want the job, you better improve your selling skills.Read more ›
