Much-Afraid begins her journey, crippled and disfigured, with the cry, "Oh, if only I could escape from this Valley of Humiliation altogether and go to the High Places." She leaves her Fearing relatives behind, and presses on to the Realm of Love. As the Chief Shepard explains, no Fears can live in this realm, because "perfect love casts out fears and everything that torments".

This audiobook was a very difficult one to stop listening to.

I'm dealing with some serious emotional and spiritual issues in my life right now. My wife told me about this book, and about how it greatly impacted her life. As a man—let's just face it, guys—seeing that this book had a female protagonist, I thought that this book was mainly for personal development for women. Boy, was I wrong.

There was so much emotion and spirit in the narration, and this made it a very pleasant listening experience! There is so much to learn from this allegory, and I will go through it again. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is feeling pinned down in the midst of a fierce battle with emotions and negative thoughts.

I was so thankful to be recommended this book by different from church.

I felt that my philosophies when it comes to business were unconventional, and I was starting to feel pretty isolated. This book showed me that my thinking was on key, and it showed me so much more than that!

This is a very well narrated audiobook. Another thing that I love about it is that the chapters are organized in such a way that you can easily go back and find something, if looking for it. This is not the case with many audiobooks I have found here on Audible.

I would very highly recommend this book! It's not just for business, it's for life!

In a world inundated with sales books on getting to yes, this audiobook recommends just the opposite, focusing on how increasing your failure rate can greatly accelerate your movement toward ultimate success. Go for No! chronicles four days in the life of fictional character Eric Bratton, a call-reluctant copier salesman who wakes up one morning to find himself in a strange house with no idea of how he got there.

I originally purchased the companion audiobook to this, thinking it was the original. I found the original here on Audible last night and purchased it immediately!

This book is well worth the purchase and well worth the time! It was very well narrated, very insightful, and very easy to understand and remember!

The concept of "go for no" makes so much sense! Many businesses in our society are all about how many "yes" answers a person gets, they set a quota, the employee strives to get the quota, and then stops! We don't acknowledge failures as stepping stones to success, but rather as blotches against personal performance. This is really changed my thinking! Whether you're in sales or in some other fields, or even for life in general, this book is applicable! Definitely give it a listen or a read!

NOW I will go and listen to the companion audiobook!

In this audiobook discover many types of successful, fun first sentences that will generate positive engagement from prospects. Our prospects guard their time, so they are especially brutal when judging our first sentences. Most times they make that entire judgment in the first few seconds. You want your prospects on your side when presenting. You can't start with a second sentence, so your first sentence better be good.

Did that headline catch your attention? Maybe, maybe not. I'm working on it! I'm a legally blind, full-time father both raising and homeschooling my boys on my own.

I've been listening to Big Al's audiobooks for a while now, and every one of them has been extremely #helpful to me as I'm pretty new to the network marketing field! I'll be listening to these multiple times because of the helpful #content, and I'm sure you will, too!

Whoever chose the narrator for these books – Dan Culhane – made a very excellent choice, in my opinion! He brings a lot of life to the books, and they are an absolute pleasure to listen to! #EasyListening #ReplayValue

First sentences are a big part of first Impressions, and they make a huge difference! This book will help you to make sure that your first sentence won't be your last!

Why can't salesmen sell? And why won't prospects listen? We offer great products to prospects. We say great things to people. We share our vision and passion with others. And they don't buy, they don't believe us, and they don't share our vision and passion. We say great things, but people don't believe us, and they don't trust us. So we don't need more good things to say. Instead, we need to learn how to get people to believe and trust the good things we are saying already.

You can turn any warm or cold prospect into a hot prospect, wanting to know all about your business. How? By learning how to effectively introduce your business into a social conversation with an easy, rejection-free sequence of just a few words. Prospects want what you have to offer, but they are afraid of someone selling them. However, prospects love to buy and join. So why not use socially acceptable word sequences that compel any prospect to literally beg you for a presentation?

...how to talk to others about the MLM business with which I am involved without pushing them away by using six different icebreaker formulas. if you're reading this body of text, it means that one of the icebreaker formulas worked on you quite well!

Although I have known about network marketing for quite some time, I am personally new to the profession.

I was born with a congenital defect which left me legally blind – no vision in my left eye and 20/1000 in my right. Do you think that the 9–5 world is accepting of people like me? If you answered "no", you're absolutely correct!

I've been divorced for over 3.5 years. I'm a full-time single father, and I'm tired of struggling. I've always been an introvert, continually feeling socially awkward when it comes to talking to people. Yet here I am, studying books like this to become a network marketing professional.

This book was very insightful. There were definitely many humorous points, but the fact is, "Big Al" gets straight to the point! I'm very thankful that I invested
not only in this audiobook, but in others of his also. I'm looking forward to listening to more and using the techniques which I learn to break free from the chains of "the system".

...From beginning to end, I found this book extremely helpful. I'm freshly entering the network marketing world, and I've always felt that I've been "socially awkward". There are some things which are mentioned in this book which are common sense, but for some of us (for me, anyway), common sense is a commodity. Sure, seeds have been planted over the years, but this book waters the seeds and helps them to germinate. I would totally recommend this book to anyone who is wanting to overcome fear and to learn how to meet new people. It is full of humor, great illustrations, and practical tips for getting out of one's comfort zone!
