Dr. Schwartz presents a carefully designed program for getting the most out of your job, your marriage and family life, and your community.

How you act when you lose will determine how long it will take you to win.
Being positive vs negative. Lift people up and don't complain.
Yes, if I'm feeling down on myself. I felt very pumped while listening to this book.
Making a commercial for yourself to yourself is a great and hilarious idea.
Most all of it. A lot of it is common-sense stuff like smile, be sincere, and stay enthusiastic about your work, but having it all laid out like this and the step-by-step advice is really what makes this book valuable.
Yes, I listened to this book for one time and I am planing on listening to it another time to make sure that I do not miss any part of this valuable book.
I already recommended it to other people
It is real, practical, it made a difference.
Great experience of many years
The best thought was: The pain of discipline is less than the pain of regret!
I love this so much
It made me understand myself and others more.
It encouraged me to keep doing the good things I have been doing and gave me new ideas!!
I am a teacher and such motivational book helps me personally and is going to help me motivate my students and inspire them to excel.
I already started looking for other books by the same author.
It actually sounds like you are listening to well done audio program as opposed to some boring monotone recording... multiple voices/ points of view
keeps you paying attention because of the change of pace
most definitely... however there is so much info that you have to pause and really think about.
This is my 13th audible book and roughly about 50th audio book I've ever listened to, and by far this is the best format... and most engaging book.
Covers confession, leadership, vision, goal setting, etc. plus give good life examples, will read it again.
I would listen to this one over and over when you need to get back on track and motivated.
I was referred to this one by "the 4-hour Work Week" and it is outstanding.
I am having all my staff read this one and I am even paying my kids to read it and write me a 2 page summary. Outstanding!
For me, not really. If you've listened to more than a handful of spiritual or psychological self-developement books, you may already be beyond the content here. Nothing new.
I've never written a review for anything, much less an audiobook, but because I've found this book more helpful than any I've been through, I felt obliged to do so. Although the book is geared toward success in business, the principles taught in it can easily (and should be) applied to your personal life. This book is essentially applied, practical cognitive behavior therapy...adjust your thinking to adjust your behavior and, in turn, the behavior that others exhibit toward you. I've found that this book has helped more with my attitude and mood than any other book that was geared specifically for improving those two aspects of your life. There is entirely too much good advice to succinctly comment on all of it, but I can assure you that you will benefit from the information taught in this audiobook. I also like the fact that the audiobook was it's own production meant to be an audiobook, and not a dry, verbatim reading of the text version. Do yourself a favor, listen to the book, and enjoy better relationships with yourself and the people around you.
Living is easy with eyes closed... and headphones on.
It just really stroke a chord with me since all of the advice made so much sense to me and is so practical.
You can listen for 10mins and already be well on your way to improve any aspect in your life.
Hard to choose, so many goodies in here.
Just the idea that belief manifests into reality is so positive and powerful encouragement.
I highly recommend this audible. I'm in school and reading time is limited but i LOVED listening to this when going out for jogging. Makes you feel empowered. Thank you audible for making this book into an audible version!
