    Story
    "I improve more every time I listen"
    Would you listen to Taming Your Gremlin again? Why?

    I listen to this often, to reinforce the process, and because I get something new out of it each time. Some of the changes takes effect immediately, others need a little time to be in process and practice. Years of self-sabotage can take a little effort to undo, but this makes it so easy to notice when it's happening, and just by noticing, it begins to dissipate. This does not set you up to do battle with your gremlin, rather to disarm him in the moment. He then shows up less and less.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite part of this process is the lack of analysis required for improvement. I know people that spend years in analysis to no end. You do not have to go down a path of rehashing what someone did to you back when that made you this way. It doesn't serve this process. Rather, awareness is key. It is amazing how quickly you can choose to disengage the ugly voice in your head this way.


    Which character – as performed by Rick Carson – was your favorite?

    Rick has a great voice; he comes across to me as a gentle and caring soul who is very adept at the process, getting right to it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I have a few a-ha moments throughout. I have a bit of an ego, thinking I'm not going to learn anything new about myself, then something he says sinks in and I feel growth takes place. And it sticks. Listening to this over and over is like adding to my toolbox for when life throws me a curveball.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a tool, a guide, a process. That doesn't mean it is for everyone on the planet, but if it is for you, it is life-changing. I am in process daily, and like any good skill that is practiced, it is becoming second nature. It is not 'religious'. Rick does mention past gurus or leaders who most likely were the first to mention a process of the mind or heart. I think that is giving credit where credit is due.

    "Utter crap!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    You might enjoy it more if you are a power of positive think and religious nut


    What could Rick Carson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Stick to the facts man


    Would you be willing to try another one of Rick Carson’s performances?

    The issue was the writing, not the performance

    "You gotta love Rick Carson"

    This book is read by the author, he has one of those voices! Funny, soothing and educational at the same time. There have been a few moments during this download where I have had an OMG revelation about my thought processes, and have changed aspects of my life accordingly.
    Worth a credit if you're looking to understand yourself and change your patterns.
    I would love a workbook to help me with the exercises.
