  • "Great story of Success"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    I really enjoyed listening to Nicolas's story. A bit of luck launched his investing career. Repeated failures almost ended it. Determination, self examination, and lots of hard work led to eventual success and a repeatable method to consistently make money in stocks.

    As I listened to the story, I could see elements of Reminiscences of a Stock Operator by Edwin Lefevre, Market Wizards by Jack Schwager, Rule #1 by Phil Town and How to Make Money in Stocks by William O’Neil. What Nicolas discovered was that to make money in stocks, he needed to 1) find the right company and put it on a watch list; 2) wait for the stock price to start moving up before buying in; 3) always protect the downside by placing a protective stop, 4) sell losers and keep winners; and 5) sell when the price stops going up.

    Nicolas's “box” method is very close to the Turtle trading method. It can work spectacularly well, but it does require discipline. He made money as long as he remained disciplined. He lost money when he failed to be disciplined. Excellent story, great message, I highly recommend this listen.

    Hungarian by birth, Nicolas Darvas trained as an economist at the University of Budapest. Reluctant to remain in Hungary until either the Nazis or the Soviets took over, he fled at the age of 23 with a forged exit visa and fifty pounds sterling to stave off hunger in Istanbul, Turkey. During his off hours as a dancer, he read some 200 books on the market and the great speculators, spending as much as eight hours a day studying.

    What made the experience of listening to The Millions Within: How to Manifest Exactly What You Want and Have an EPIC Life! the most enjoyable?

    I liked the cut and dry approach to basic success principles, and there's also a great talk about what what money really is.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Millions Within: How to Manifest Exactly What You Want and Have an EPIC Life!?

    That money is energy, and time is the real commodity.


    What about Lynn Benson’s performance did you like?

    Lynn's voice is deep and soothing, and his pacing is easy to follow.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    The #1 rule of the Universe is More Life.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book for a beginner or someone looking to brush up on the key principles of self-development. However, it left me wanting more details and a section on application and strategy.

  • "Consciousness ("Mentality")..."

    7 of 7 helpful votes

    The three simple steps revolve around the ways you can consciously use your mind (or "mentality" as Blake calls it):

    1. Focus only on what you want, not on what you do not want. Filter out negative conversation, people and media. Cultivate internal views of scenes and conditions you enjoy, love and wish to have more of.

    2. Set aside quiet time each day. Quiet is the ground of potentiality.

    3. Develop *intention* to attract your desired results and circumstances. Not a goal; a goal is inherently separate from us and has doubt attached. Intention -- or as Blake also puts it, a state of knowing -- is part of us and does not include doubt. Intention brings itself into being.

    The book includes inspiring stories, including the one at the beginning that I will refrain from spoiling by not revealing the surprise ending. He relates being bullied as an English boy growing up in poverty in Wales (with some truly harrowing anecdotes), and how he overcame trauma by learning about and following the examples of others from oppressed backgrounds who discovered secrets to phenomenal success.

    A modern take on some age-old ideas, the "Three Simple Steps" are refreshingly straightforward, but there is also nuance to this book. Blake encourages us to pay close attention to our internal and external experience, and to become the selectors of the circumstances and lives we want.

    The voice performance is adequate, although to hear Britishisms read in an American accent is a little odd at times. Overall there is nothing negative to say about Dudley's narration; it is easy to listen to without sending the listener to sleep.

    Recommended for those who wish to set their lives on an upward trajectory.

    How many self-help books are written by authors whose biggest success is selling self-help books? Three Simple Steps is different. Despite stock market crashes, dot-com busts, and the specter of recession, the author started a virtual company from home, using a few thousand dollars of his savings. A few years later, without ever hiring an employee or leaving his home office, he sold it for more than $100 million. As the economy slipped into another free fall, he did this again with a company in a different field. He accomplished this through no particular genius.

    Rob says: "Consciousness ("Mentality") is the key"
