    Story

    In this program, Les Brown provides a foundational key that can propel you to your next higher level. There are times in life when it seems hard to actually affirm that you can make it; and that you can actually overcome that particular obstacle and attain that new height. You can’t always say I know I can and keep integrity with yourself and your true feelings. What you can use as a benchmark and a place to always fall back to is “It’s Possible!”

    Story
    What did you love best about It's Possible?

    It is short and good enough. It is acted with humor.


    Would you recommend It's Possible to your friends? Why or why not?

    Not really. It sounds "like" a classic or is "made" such. It seems to be made of parts of a six day seminar and the cuts aren't well made. It is not profound enough to be sharp. How long will it take you to say: "It is possible?"... 58 minutes?... I am not sure. Even if you explain it!


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Les Brown is an unbelievable speaker. He is charismatic and could be nice if he wasn't shouting so loud... He has a sense of humor and use it nicely.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. It is not long. But the fact that it is a compound made of cuts of a seminar make it less productive.


    Any additional comments?

    Good to have in your library but not absolutely necessary. To resume: it's possible! But you will not learn anything more than those three words!

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

    Story
    (372)

    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.

    What would have made The Secrets of the Power of Intention better?

    When an author tells itself in his book that if you do not believe what is written in the book, than it is due to your ego... Well this is a sentence that sounds everything but scientific!
    According to me this is more manipulation than information!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    "If you are truly connected to your source, then the power of intention is infinite and whatever you will want this will happen". This sentence contains itself its own limitation and this is impossible to prove! Just take the contra-positive of this sentence: "If you do not get what you want this means that you were not truly connected to your source." And Wayne is going further by saying that the problem is then due to the ego.
    This is:
    1° False: ego is not something that we should fight. Ego is the power of every human being.
    2° Dangerous: what has to think all the people having a deadly disease? That they deserve it? This is stupid. And what about a child being smashed in public? Do you think this child wanted this? Do you think all the people seeing the scene wanted this? And what about all these forces joined together that didn't prevent this? It is dangerous to think that you can change the weather just by wanting it! This is just not serious!
    I really do not understand how such a guy has been teacher in an university... or was it truly an university?


    Any additional comments?

    "Feeling good" = "feeling god"! Damned! I think that Wayne is confusing preaching with teaching! By the way how do you explain this in other languages? This is stupid.

    Now beside all these "mambo jambo" thoughts the overall message of Wayne is a message of peace and love. And this is great. He is such charismatic with such a voice… Great!

    But do not take all he says for reality! This is a nice fairy tale for adult. Who do not wish to think that the intention comprise all the needed power to get everything you need and want? But this is not true! To be awaken is not to be taken as to be naive! Personal development needs to be attentive and to be proven, not to believe!

    Do not take me wrong: this production is great! It is a great… fairy tale!

    If you could sum up The Modern Scholar in three words, what would they be?

    It is a real university lecture! Quality is there! Transition between the chapters are making the whole book fairly easy to ear. It is a good idea to link this book with a web site dedicated to its content.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Persuasion is not really the point of this book...


    What three words best describe the narrator’s performance?

    Smart, pleasant, good.


    Any additional comments?

    I'd like to find a book getting deeper into persuasion! But this one is a really quality lecture!

    Over a decade ago came the Hypnotic Salesman: seven key principles of subliminal communication that teach anyone to sell directly to the subconscious, bypassing the part of the mind responsible for judging and evaluating. Originally designed to give the sales executives of a major national commercial radio group the edge over their competitors, twelve years later the Hypnotic Salesman II drills down on the seven most powerful sales persuasion techniques in the world today. The secrets in this book will explode your closure rates, smash your targets and give you valuable insight into human motivation.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If it was really about hypnotic sales, I could have rate it more.
    Though this work is a good introduction.
    But it does not talk about hypnotic sale method...


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The most interesting is the overall idea.
    The least interesting are some ideas that I do not agree at all... Craig Beck's definition of the ego is to much Yungian for me... The same for his subconscious topic... Hum not convincing at all (even wrong for me!)


    How could the performance have been better?

    If it had really spoken about hypnotic sales method...


    Any additional comments?

    As an hypnotherapist I feel this is not a book over hypnotic sale methods...
    But this is still a good introduction that I recommend...

    Would you listen to Success Equations/Personal Development again? Why?

    You can feel the power of a lifetime experience in these sentences and in the overall construction of the speech. You need to listen to this more than once!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I liked the overall motivation that gives you this ebook.
    I didn't liked the fact that it is made of cuts from a two days seminar: to split the personal development part from the rest isn't, according to me, valuable!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    It's only a two hours long recording... Everything is worth it!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I listen it four times consecutively! I get addict to it!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a must have!
