  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

    In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

    Story

    This book does not give you practical how-to tips or a grid systemized way of seeing things. What it does is it conveys a way of seeing things, points to something that is out there and influences us, whether we call it force, god, nature or something else. It also discusses how we can relate to it to acheive what we truly want and are meant for in life.
    If this is something you've already thought along the lines of you might get some interesting insights. If it is not in your present mindset it might open up some doors if you listen to it with an open heart.

    It was hard for me to decide upon stars. If you haven't dug deeper inte Covey lore, than reading the 7 Habits, then this will provide additional insight into writing a mission statement.
    However, if you have listened/read any of the 7 Habits "spin-offs" (seminars, focus-books, compilations, etc.), then this is mostly a rechewing of old advice.

    Don't get me wrong though - it is good stuff, just not the first time it was served!

    Story

    I am a believer in the power of the mind, even to the extent where it starts to seem a bit magical. This book is a collection of stories and catchphrases based on the assumption that we get what we think about/focus on.

    Starting off I thought it was a bit much but still okey. However, the book really lost me when the author in the latter part started talking about how "we used to live to be hundreds of years in the past" (based on a few characters from the bible), but had forgotten our natural health. I don't expect scientific from a book like this, but nor do I expect it to make up unsubstantiated facts as base of its theory.

    The only reason I don't give it a one is that I support the underlying message plus that it is really well produced. The narrator (author I believe) is excellent, and I must unwillingly admit that the dramatic music and added narrators are effective at enhancing the message.

    To make the journey into The Power of Now you need to leave your analytical mind and its false created self, the ego, behind. Access to the Now is everywhere - in the body, the silence, and the space all around you. These are the keys to enter a state of inner peace.

    Story

    To it's defense I must say I didn't finish it - but that said I can say I don't quit many books. The author (who also reads parts) is a previously depressed guy who one day hux-flux found enlightenment and then found his call to teach it. That's all good - but this guy is almost totally void of humility and is not teaching as much as tutoring. Early on he flips the secret of God, we have misused the phrase but he knows what it really is! On top of that he speaks with a voice someone would use if he wanted to portray a stereotypical Asian wise man on Saturday Night Live. Keep browsing past this one, there are a lot of better books on similar enough subjects. I want my credit back!

    Internationally renowned psychiatrist, Viktor E. Frankl, endured years of unspeakable horror in Nazi death camps. During, and partly because of his suffering, Dr. Frankl developed a revolutionary approach to psychotherapy known as logotherapy. At the core of his theory is the belief that man's primary motivational force is his search for meaning.

    If I had to choose a must-read-list this one would be a sure candidate. It has the ability to touch you in so many levels. There is not only the insights into and behind the scenes from "the horrors of concentration camps", but a personal story of struggle and contemplation. All of this in the light of his own theories about us humans, what drives us and how we may search for happiness. I would like to recommend this book to you with my deepest conviction it holds true wisdom!

Their lives, like all of ours, are filled with a bewildering blizzard of emails, phone calls, yet more emails, meetings, projects, proposals, and plans. Just staying ahead of the storm has become a seemingly insurmountable task.

    I found this book amazing. Being a student of leadership and personal effectiveness, this really complemented other books with a more biological viewpoint. The authors excellence lies in his ability to put scientific discoveries into a useful framework and explain them through easy-to-grasp-metaphors and every-day-life-examples. The reading is okay, although a few puns are lost to a certain degree of roboticness. Highly highly recommended!

    Collins French with Paul Noble combines an exciting new non-traditional approach to language learning with the easy, relaxed appeal of an audio-only product. No books. No rote memorisation. No chance of failure. Learn over 6,000 words in no time at all and - most importantly - learn how to make your new vocabulary work for you.

    I studied French in school for many years but then never used it. I bought this to brush up and it does a decent job of helping you with that at least. I cannot really assess how practical it would be for someone who is completely unfamiliar with the language.

    Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.

    Story

    The book is not nearly as holistic or well organized as for example The 7 Habits of Highly Effective people. It won’t give you a complete mindset or lens to wee the world though. What it will give you though is a lot of practical tips and pointers and if you can pick the raisins out of it, it might be worth a purchase.

    The 8th Habit is the answer to the soul's yearning for greatness, the organization's imperative for significance and superior results, and humanity's search for its "voice". Profound, compelling, and stunningly timely, this groundbreaking new audiobook of next level thinking gives a clear way to finally tap the limitless value-creation promise of the Knowledge Worker Age.

    Story

    The title leads you to believe that is in a “sequel” to the 7 habits, but having read it I’m thinking the title might be more of a marketing choice. This is a decent book but not nearly as holistic and clear-cut as the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. It’s comprised of 90% old Covey material reworked into a system. Instead of a separate 8th habit it’s more like the 7 habits from another viewpoint with some new insights. If you have read 7 Habits this might widen your perspective somewhat, if you haven’t read it then pick that one up instead.
