"Yet another profound and powerful tool in the Robbins arsenal of self-awareness. It has been an enormous source of strength and insight for me both personally and professionally." (Peter Guber, former Chairman and CEO, Sony Pictures)
"Anthony Robbins is the 'ultimate coach' for that special breed of men and women who will never settle for less than they can be." (Pat Riley, NBA "Coach of the Decade")
If this were the entire, unabridged book. This is only equivalent to about 1/3 of the book, which is dense in material. In this audiobook, you get a very short, shallow view of Robbins' coaching methods.
Yes, but only online as videos, which are more apt to be short-form.
On those endless TV infomercials, Tony Robbins comes across as an insincere, hyperactive pitchman who's main goal appears to be separating losers from from their hard-earned cash. The really astonishing truth, however, is that Robbins is not only legitimate, but a source of insights and techniques that work better than those of ANY other motivational or spiritual guru whose work I've encountered. I had a difficult time at first overcoming Robbins' high-intensity speaking style. But once I began stopping the tape to respond to his questions and actually applying his techniques (a combination of Neuro-Associative Conditioning and goal-setting wisdom), my life went through a major transformation. I continue to return to his work when my emotional muscles need strengthening and am always surprised at the solidity of the "science" behind what he does. This particular abridgment is concise and powerful and worth its low price many times over.
I was expecting so much more. It was such a let down. I went out and bought the book afterwards to see if it lost something as an audio book, it certainly did. The 90 minutes didn't do it justice.
The first 18 minutes of this program was Tony introducing himself and being very vauge on what he can do for you in this audio.
Here's the entire program, in summary:
1. Decide what you want.
2. Take Action to go get it.
3. Notice what works and what doesn't.
4. If it doesn't work, try something else.
WOW! Brilliant! Thanks, Tony!!
The most helpful "take-away" I got from this audio was how you can get RICH by re-purposing old content from other programs and selling it as a separate program. The rest of this audio program is bits and pieces of his other programs re-purposed, and mashed together.
Too short on substance. I felt cheated. I hope the written product is much better than this was. Not worth buying this audio version.
This audio was really helpful for me. There are some nice motivational phrases, however doing the exercises will get you the most benefit.
I've heard that since this book Robbins has changed his style, preferring to focus completely on your motivation toward a goal, rather than in this book he also leverages your need to be motivated away from a situation - such as poverty, or neglect.
In his more recent works you might find his style has evolved with the research he's done on motivation and goals?
Anthony Robbins is the authority on "Life Mastery". I recently bought the newly revised copy of Awaken the Giant Within which made me hesitant to buy this audiobook.
But Anthony cuts through all the extra, unneeded content within the audio book and gets straight to the point. I still have the hard copy for reference which is great.
I highly recommend this book for someone who wants to be able to formulate and articulate the things they do in life an why they do them. Anthony gives unbelievable strategy for accomplishing everything you could ever want.
I've listened in on this material at least 5 times and proactively participated in the several exercises included. This book has done wonders for optimizing my belief structures.
"Keep on listening to this one"
This book, shortened as it it, is ideal for train journeys. I listen to it when I know I am going to have a difficult day and find it very helpful.
Listening to Tony's story as a child and having no food yet someone took the initiative and delivered a full Thanksgiving feast for no charge. This inspired Tony to provide many 1,000s of these food baskets for other needy families at Thanksgiving.
Anything by Tony Robbins is awesome to me.
"Still one of the best at what he does..."
Tony Robbins is still one of the best gurus out there, and this was one of his original programmes. Reading his books was not as powerful for me as listening to his actual recordings. To actually hear Tony's enthusiasm, energy and passion in your ears, in stereo, is far more engaging. Even listening to a ten or twenty minute segment while walking to the bus stop can fire you up. You have an edge over most people who listen to their own negative inner voice, or replay negative comments from their past. In this programme, he covers 'pattern interrupts' and how to erase those old 'mental tapes' many people play on a loop to themselves. Break old patterns and learn new ones.
I liked the idea and the voices in it but it was really short disappointedly short I wish that the full book was read with that voice.
Great that it's only a hour and half long. Great that it's packed with useful information. Great that it was in the sale x
"Short but Very Sweet"
Yes. This book is long enough to explain the method but short enough to get you fired up into taking action.
This is a short version of alot of the books that I read. Also, Anthony Robbins is very like Jim Rohn when he speaks. He is, however, very much unique and his presentation - in my opinion - is amazing. My mentor.
His delivery and passion could sell absolutely anything.
His story about how he cried, believing that his life was worthless - then not too many years later when he arrived at his seminar and thousands of people were fighting to see him. Result!
If you want to change your life or any aspect of it - listen to this. It is the shortest self-development audiobook - but the strongest to get you motivated to make more progress and develop a plan to succeed.
"Change is Good!"
I would say yes because it is so short which means you can easily listen to it a few times a day if you really wanted to. The more you listen to it the more the information is going to sink in which is why i personally think the audio version is better in this case.
I like the way Anthony Robbins talks about setting goals and how many years you think it might take for you to achieve them. With this way of thinking you start imagining ways to make those realities’ come to fruition. I literally just finished the book so its still early days for me but I already feel empowered to make changes because change as scary as it may seem at first is the only way to make something new happen in your life.
The part where he starts talking about brainstorming and listing our goals for the future and how long we think it will take to achieve them. This is where everything he says starts to sink in as you go from the mindset of someone who talks abut doing things to someone who actually does do them.
It was very short and to the point. He talked about his life experiences and how he became so successful which was inspirational. Emphasis was given to changing your belief system and how your fears of being successful hold you back. There is a giant inside of us a sleeping giant we just need to wake it up.
This book is pretty short compared to a lot of the other self help books out there which some people might assume means that its very light on content. This is not at all the case in my opinion and while it might not be a fully encompassing book it does manage to give the user a wealth of compacted belief conditioning methods in a short amount of time. And because its so short you can easily go over it again to reinforce those beliefs because repetition and time is the key to creating that new behaviour.
"Just an awesome, inspiring book!"
This is a brilliant book. Anthony is at his motivating and inspiring best with clear ideas and processes that anyone can adopt. Highly recommended if you need that inspiration to make some positive changes in your life.
Short and powerful! With the practicals it is life changing. I can highly recommend it to all who wants to change their life.
"amazing inspiring book. best book ever"
I read this year's ago changed my life then now I'm back for more! thanks
I was only hoping to listen to the first few chapters, but I ended up listening to the whole thing, such an inspiration, such a great book, one I will listen to again just for the motivation and inspiration I felt from it, if your ready to make that change start with thus book it will truly help you on your journey.
