It seemed he only had one method for achieving success and he repeated it many times with slightly different twists. I confess, I am now definitely not a fan of NLP or, Nothing Left to Ponder or Naturally Lacking Potential. Secular priesthood in my opinion, comforting in the way of warm bath doomed to going tepid.
Not like this one
A return to Audible for something with substance
The fact that he grabbed and held on to my attention. The simplicity with which he presents an otherwise complicated process - that we can in fact change the way we think by changing our beliefs. It could be just another book pill to ease our angst but it is not, it actually delivers.
The notion of writing down thirty of your most dysfunctional or conflicting beliefs with the invitation to just....change them and not just once but as often as necessary until you end up with one that gives you peace of mind.
There is a plethora of stuff out there, enough to drown the most ardent soul searcher and bring us to the verge of being unsure what or who is on the money. For me, this guy is.
Yes and I do. Anyone who can call themselves a Jewish atheist is my kind of guy. But seriously, if you are tired of New Age invocations to find yourself as though you'd lost yourself somewhere, then this is for you. Grounded, solid, knowledgable, humorous, compassionate and he doesn't preach or invite you to feel part of a bigger anything. This is a book that should be read (or heard) by anyone, irrespective of whether they feel they have something to learn about the human condition, especially if they think they have nothing to learn about the human condition. And if your religious or ascribe to a force out there, don't read this, you might be tempted to finally accept that it is you.
Hmm, that's a little harder to comment on. I am Australian and he definitely sounds like the American equivalent of someone trying to speak with a plumb in their mouth. At first, I thought he was completely the wrong reader because one had the feeling that he didn't empathise with the content but I got over this and now quite like his voice. Not a big issue.
To get on with it, stop fussing so much, stop blaming and tearing what little hair I have left out. To accept my humanity and I mean the fact that I am an animal who walks upright and has being telling himself that what goes on in my head is beyond me. It isn't.
Yes, get this into schools ASAP
