I would recommend this book, the book might of been written many, many years ago but the principles still hold true.. Not outdated by any means.. David Schwartz is very engaging, the book is only about 4 hours long, but it can help huge goals become possible
This was a very straightforward book that pinpointed methods of positive thinking exercises to change your personal and professional life.
This book made so many things clearer for me with respect to what exactly needs to be done in order to attain my goals. It's encouraging, uplifting, and filled with truth and wisdom. It was exactly the pep talk I needed to get me refocused in the right direction.
Another great book identifying the strength of our minds. This books touches on dealing with social relationships, goal setting, and personal management. Build those brain muscles!
"This is old school, things have moved on!"
Had this book provided some grounding and research as to why the author was suggesting to do the things he did then it would have been parallel with many more contemporary offerings. More substance would have improved this read immeasurably.
A talk at you approach of old school American, motivational "positive mental attitude." When there are such great books around about the psychology of how our mind works and how to control, ("The Chimp Paradox" by Steve Peters for example) this left me cold as it just felt like a bunch of buzz words and nothing more
The narrator was okay, fairly easy to listen to but given the type of book it was the content which was at fault more than the narrator.
It just feels as though this book is now out of date. Research and evidence is what is required. Its a big title but little more. A real shame!
"Buy it and implement"
A great program with real actionable strategies that can make a real difference to your life.
A good balance of story and actors to keep you engaged and entertained.
One of my favourite repeat monthly to keep you on track.
"Great book! think big, be happy & plan ahead."
listening go this inspiring book while I walked in the park, get ready for work or clean the house. life isn't the same without goals and vision!
"Think BIG! And think BIGGER!"
Simple way to approach life to create value using the power of thinking, goal setting and action!
Add the power of 10x to it.
Thank you David!
Id recommend this book to anyone with goals and dreams.. Easy to listen to too
Yes, very nicely written
Fantastic content, excellent narration. If you feel bad about your own life, just start to listen.
Apart from the corny chimes in between each chapter, the content and messaging was clear, really value adding and easy to follow. Strong recommendation for self motivation...
"The Magic book"
I Read this book may years ago I enjoyed but never gave the really attention it need it nor understood its message, that is until now. I'm now 60 and I really understood what Dr. Schwartz is saying and how incredible true it is. I advice who ever reads this book to take it at heart and to believed it, because what Dr. Schwartz says is very true. I read it every morning before I do anything else to inspire me, because it will help me achieve what I set to achieve even at this late stage. it is really a magic book. thank you Dr. Schwartz.
"motivation in life"
I enjoy it👍👍. give you motivation for your life. I recommend it for everyone 😊😊
Great book! The first 1/3 is my favorite. It is a bit older and some of the voice actors sound silly but all and all a up lifting and positive book
