Yes, because it brings a lot of very simple examples from everyday life of how we can ask for what we want. It is easier to ask than we think.
Jack when he said he resented his wife for not helping him with the groceries bags.
To ask, ask and keep asking!
It helps you to shift your paradigms about deserving and helps to let go the hesitation when you want to ask for something you really want
This is a little older material but it is still great - nicely presented and easy to listen to. I will have to listen to it more than once.
Yes only because I don't have time to read. I listen to this while I am getting ready for work and during my daily walks.
Yes I have and but not with Mark Victor together.
There are so many ideas that I want to find a print version
The audio book is full of great information. It will help your mindset to be motivated and productive. The story telling and reference to other books was my favorite part. I would highly recommend if you are looking for good listen to motivate you.

Having owned the book of Aladdin Factor (such a touching and amazing book) the audiobook copy of it was abysmal. It was condensed enough to become boring meaningless dribble that was a pain to get through, each concept was only touched on for a tiny bit of time, without ever getting into the depths of the concept enough for it to sink in, just nifty little anecdotes that didn't do anything justice. If you are wanting to listen to Aladdin Factor DO NOT GET THE ABRIDGED COPY.
The Dare to Win side was the complete oposite. Aladdin Factor is a book comprised of anecdotes that drill home a message, whereas Dare to Win is about the authors personal lesson and much more a book along the lines of Think and Grow Rich and the like. That being said, that content of Dare to Win fitted real well into the abridged form and the result was a highly motivating and moving short rendition. Highly worth it.
Every person in this audiobook has achieved great success and that's not by mistake. They will help you get through those rough days when it seems no matter what you do is not enough.
Not if they are narrating it. They're just awful.
No idea, but someone who is a professional reader.
The book is far too repetitious, but that would be bearable were it not for the sophomoric reading skills of those two guys. They seem to be in love with their delivery, and they seem to think they have to put great emotion into words that speak just fine for themselves.
Is it weird and creepy or creepy and weird? Horrible, horrible writing/story telling. I forced myself to listen to two chapters just to make sure what I was hearing was what they really wrote. Do not waste your time and money on this.
Not bad on the performance. The Aladdin story line is super corny-good or bad.
A huge waste of time and money.
"Truly motivating and a real pleasure to listen"
Listening to the voices of Jack Canfield and Mark Hansen was a real pleasure. A truly inspiring and motivating book and I would say - it really touches you deeper when you are listening to it in comparison to reading. And it is actually a very nice bonus that there are two motivation books (Alladin Factor and Dare to Win) included in one audiobook. Very many thanks indeed and really recommended.
Just a minor comment for future improvements - would probably be great to see the names of the chapters provided in the audiobook format.
"Too Pantomime - Sorry Jack!"
First of all I love Jack Canfield and avidly tune into various videos. Unfortunately though I found the first book - Aladdin Factor far too pantomine in its delivery. The messages are good but the Aladdin voice was irritating in the extreme and I found the book a little monotonous. 'Dare to Win' was significantly better fortunately.
Not at all, Jack Canfield is one of my favourite motivational speakers but the Aladdin Factor just didn't do him justice at all, far too gimmicky.
I found myself wanting to skip chapters and finding parts of the book very repetitive. Perhaps that's because I listened all in one sitting (a very long car journey), but I wouldn't rush back to reread them. Canfield has a lot of excellent material, I think these are on the fringes of this.
Aladdin! While the analogy works ok to get the point across, the concept 'ask to receive' I felt this was overplayed, over simplistic and irritating.
The second book, Dare to Win, is much better than the former and if you buy them both together I'd suggest skipping through chapters of the first. I'd still err towards other publications by Canfield, he has some fabulous ideas and philosophy but these books just don't really show him in his best light.
