  • Step Into Your Greatness (Live)

    High-octane speaker Les Brown advises to stop playing it safe and start creating what's truly possible in life by stretching yourself, taking risks, and surrounding yourself with positive, nourishing people.

    I wouldn't say Les Brown's material is new, but listening to him speak makes me feel really charged up to do more with myself. When I get frustrated with things, suddenly I can hear his voice in my mind saying "You've gotta be hungry!" That means to me I've got to persist and do what it takes to get what I want. I've listened to many motivational speakers with great material, yet still something was missing. I think Les Brown gets to my emotions more than others. This seminar was a great addition to my audio library!

    Brian Tracy has spent more than 20,000 hours researching and reading on the subject of personal and business success. This is the most comprehensive and advanced seminar on personal success and achievement ever developed. This 16-segment audio program reveals how to set goals, make more money, simplify your life, and supercharge your career.

    Overall

    There is no question this 11 hours of Brian Tracy is a true value. I keep listening to it over and over and notice things I've previously missed. There's just so much useful information to absorb. No question that anyone who applies this material will make astounding progress! Some of the talk concerning being a superstar salesperson is not that interesting to me, but Brian Tracy says we are all salespeople in a way. Overall, this success program is invaluable and I'm so thankful it's accessible through Audible.

  • The Seven Hidden Secrets of Motivation: Unlocking the Genius Within

    Are you really motivated to achieve your dreams? The answer may surprise you. Research shows that as many as 80% of us over-estimate our level of motivation. No wonder so many dreams die unfulfilled, so many goals remain forever out of reach. Think about the important goals you could achieve if you were truly motivated. Don't you owe it to yourself to give them your best possible shot?

    Overall

    I almost didn't buy this audiobook because of the poor reviews. I have listened to half the book so far and don't notice any glaring faults. I'm really enjoying it as a matter of fact! I'm finding it extremely informative and find it clear and concise. He only mentions religion because it's part of the research on motivation...I don't feel he has an agenda and I don't find it offensive, and I'm not a devoted Christian. The narrator's voice is a bit scratchy, but I got past that. My audiocredits cost me about $10 a piece, and I totally find this book worth it for that price and I still have half the book left to listen to.

    Overall

    This is by far the best value I've gotten on Audible out of over 60 non-fiction/self-help audiobooks so far. I really liked getting the snapshots of the selected success books and found the narrator's delivery more than adequate to do the job. At first I thought I would just listen to this audiobook as a shortcut to understanding, sort of like reading Cliffnotes. However, I am incredibly inspired to delve into some of these works, as the author does occassionally point out a 15-20 minute synopsis leaves out some important material. I would say this is a way to "test-drive" some of the books before buying, and hopefully you will come to know which ones suit your needs.

  • How to Get a Date Worth Keeping

    Have you ever asked yourself: why doesn't God bring someone to love into my life? Why am I always attracted to the wrong kind of people? Should I marry someone I am not really attracted to just because we share the same values and are such great friends? You are not alone. There is a growing population of people who feel that dating is just not working for them.

    Overall

    I really enjoyed both the content and narration of this audiobook. Many of my particular problems were addressed and useful suggestions were offered for those problems. I have been struggling with my dating life for years and have never figured out why. There is absolutely nothing about me to scare anyone off, yet I find myself dateless most often. This book has given me the courage to go out there and just get moving. Dating doesn't seem as threatening and heavy as it did to me last week. What I learned from this book is worth at least ten times what I paid for it!
