I read "Being you, changing the world" before this book.
Most of the concepts (which are VERY useful and I love) are the same, but in "Money isn't the problem, you are" they are more focused on the abundance factor.
I like the practical use of all the tools shared.
The narrator and/or the editing of the audio have some flaws, but the content is what's important.

This is a very different book: It is written for the dreamers of this world - the people who KNOW that something different is possible - but who have never had the tools before.... This is a Handbook for Generating Infinite Possibilities and Dynamic Change. For you. And the world. Ten years ago, Dr. Dain Heer started as a chiropractor in California, USA. Seemingly successful and happy, Dain Heer was on the verge of suicide when he came across Access Consciousness. With this modality, based on question and choice, Dr. Heer's life began to expand and grow with more ease and speed than even he could have imagined possible.

I am relatively new to Access Consciousness and this is the first book I read about the subject. I loved it! It really got me questioning everything I thought I knew... But in a really good an powerful way. How can it get any better than that? 😉

In Happiness, Matthieu Ricard demonstrated that true happiness is not tied to fleeting moments or sensations, but is an enduring state of soul rooted in mindfulness and compassion for others. Now he turns his lens from the personal to the global, with a rousing argument that altruism - genuine concern for the well-being of others - could be the saving grace of the 21st century. It is, he believes, the vital thread that can answer the main challenges of our time.

A book that thoroughly analyzes ALL the complex components of our present reality and gives real doable sollutions for a better world. Worth reading by anyone concerned about our actual situation and our future. Highly recommended! I wish this was an assigned reading for all kids in highschool. Educating for altruism is educating for a better human kind.

Many of us unconsciously pick up ambitions from our parents, celebrities, or the imaginary "they" we’re trying to impress. We crank hard trying to meet the "right" goals instead of the ones that match the shape of our heart. It’s Achievement Autopilot…and it’ll burn you out. Knowing how you actually want to feel is the most potent form of clarity that you can have. Generating those feelings is the most powerfully creative thing you can do.

In The Wheel of Life, when Kübler-Ross was 71 years old and facing her own death, this world-renowned healer told the story of her extraordinary life. Having taught the world how to die well, she offered a lesson on how to live well. The Wheel of Life is an adventure of the heart - powerful, controversial, inspirational - a fitting legacy of a powerful life.

Maybe it was a grandparent, or a teacher, or a colleague. Someone older, patient, and wise who understood you when you were young and searching, helped you see the world as a more profound place, gave you sound advice to help you make your way through it. For Mitch Albom that person was Morrie Schwartz, his college professor from nearly 20 years ago. Wouldn't you like to see that person again, ask the bigger questions that still haunt you, receive wisdom the way you once did when you were younger? Mitch Albom had that second chance.

A teenage boy goes shopping on the Internet, sees something he likes, immediately reaches his mother via cell phone, and in a few short keystrokes, types in her credit card number and gets a shiny new lacrosse stick. Thanks to technological advances, including computers, the Internet, cell phones, and satellites, today's children are faced with a world markedly more complex - and often more distracting - than that of any other preceding generation.

Adam Braun began working summers at hedge funds when he was just 16 years old, sprinting down the path to a successful Wall Street career. But while traveling as a college student, he met a young boy begging on the streets of India. When Braun asked the boy what he wanted most in the world, he simply answered, "A pencil." This small request became the inspiration for Pencils of Promise, the organization Braun would leave a prestigious job at Bain & Company to start with just $25 at the age of 24.

Where does The Promise of a Pencil rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The best!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Promise of a Pencil?

All of the chapters (mantras) were extremely uplifting, inspirational and emotional for me.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Adam gave the first pencil to a little boy in India; The lighning moment when the idea of "Pencils of Promise" first came into his mind; Adam showing his grandma the first school he built in her honor... And so many others! I burst into tears of emotion so many times!

What insight do you think you’ll apply from The Promise of a Pencil?

Anyone can change the world with small acts of kindness that can become massive game changers to improve the world and make it a better place.

Any additional comments?

Adam Braun is one of my heroes. Hearing his story it was clear for me that no one has a good reason not to follow their dreams and change the world. The "For pourpose" approach for social entrepeneurship blew my mind and got me actually defining my own project. The way he opened so many doors and inspired others to make his dream their own is totally awesome. I'm so thankful for him and for finding this great book.
