This book was recommended to me by a colleague, and I was not disappointed. Mr. Connors outlines, in the simplest of terms, what must be done to experience happiness in all areas of life. Implementing the principles outlined in this book may not be easy, but it's simple. Connors does an excellent job to point out the characteristics of below-the-line thinking, and shows the steps to defeat it. I didn't realize until I heard this book how much of my own time and energy I was still wasting blaming outside circumstances for my own problems instead of taking control to confront them head on. If you're not open to self-change, you will likely find this book to be a waste of your time, but if you are, it provides a great foundation to begin.
Say something about yourself!
I found the journey enjoyable but a painful experience of Self Examination to a greater person through the end.
The Best thing of the Whole Book is that it is Real and principles are applicable to all levels of life whether in Business or Home life relationships.
Shepherd keeps information alive and interesting.
The Last 3 chapters were a real call to action for me and going through the exercises is a must if you are truly committed to Getting Above the Line and Staying there.
A must read for everyone that wants to maintain strong long lasting relationships.
Yes, I could learn more n more each time I listen to the oz.
What I liked best is how the author explains in detail how we can use it in our workforce
Great interpretation of the principles of the classic children's book.
I've listened to the material numerous times and with each time, I pick out something new. Really enjoyed the book.
From a business point of view much of this is common sense. Accountability starts with you. The ideas are clear, well though out and applicable. The idea of above and below the line is great. Getting upper management to take feedback and say thank you..this portion I find unrealistic.
"Excellent and informative"
Practical applications for yourself and others you're managing
Pace was a little fast - you tune into that over a period of listening but I found it a bit much at first.
