As a fan of personal development materials I was looking forward to hearing Wayne for the first time. I listened to about half of the audiobook before giving up on it. There are a lot of good ideas in his work; however, too much of it felt like endless rambling and "new age" science for me. I really think he could have conveyed the same information in half the time and still done so in a motivating fashion.
That said, I know the book will be a great aid for many. It simply didn't speak to me.
...this is the book for you. Dr Dyer gives a comprehensive explaination of the nature of excuses, how to stop using them, and get on with your life.
The level of detail he goes into is impressive, but can actually be too much if you are time constrained. I must admit I struggled to stay tuned in for the whole duration and know I need to listen to it again. I do only listen to half an hour a day though.
Personally, I was struck by how few excuses I use, but the ones I do use are MASSIVE in their impact on my life and I need to apply Dr Dyers methods to them.
I think I would have found the book more useful if I was a constant excuse maker. All in all a good book.
Classics, history, historical fiction, marketing, Napoleonic stuff and of course 'Boys own Adventure'. This is my bent. Occasional self help as well.
Not a bad book, but a little too Buda for me liking. Yes I agree with his ideas, however it all comes down to a question of faith. Never the less, his ideas on not accepting excuses and taking responsibility are helpful. Worth a listen if you have the open mind and time.
Phenomenal piece of work. The analogies, examples , and overall life applicable examples with remedy to self limiting beliefs! I recommend to EVERYONE!
This is a book of quotes by other people. Quote after quote after quote after quote......
The author is a terrible narrator; he is very boring and monotone - quite uninspiring. Couldn’t finish listening to the book.
Author should have some one else narrate he books, someone with an intersting and engaging voice.
Far too many quotes in the book
Book spared boredom for me
show up and be what you want to see in the world is the idea of this book. i have a hard time with any self help when the author spends more time with why things are bad than they do on the solution to the problem. he sounded a like to Tony Robbins for me.
no only rent
