  • If You Want to Write

In her 93 remarkable years, veteran freelance writer, memoirist, and writing teacher Brenda Ueland published some six million words. She once said there were two simple rules that she followed absolutely: to tell the truth, and to not do anything she didn't want to do. Such integrity both distinguishes and defines If You Want to Write, her best-selling classic that first appeared in the late 1930s and has inspired thousands to find their own creative center.

I have always shyed away from writing, but this book gives one such positive reinforcement as well as great ideas to help you get over any kind of writer's block. I highly recommend it to any aspiring writer.

This is the original to the runaway hit "The Secret" But this is much better although the narrator reads too fast and I found his voice quite irritating. I had to listen to it a few times and each listen revealed more. I highly recommend this audio. I would read the book too. If you can listen to only one chapter a week as is instructed, you will probably get more useful information. As for me, I couldn't wait to go to the next chapter.

Live the life you've always wanted to live! 100 Ways to Motivate Yourself is packed with techniques for breaking down negative barriers and pessimistic thoughts that prevent you from fulfilling your goals and dreams. It's easy to get stuck in a humdrum life and only fantasize about what "could have been". Motivational speaker Steve Chandler helps you change that way of thinking to what "will be". His ideas will help you create an action plan for living out your vision.

There are a few motivation ideas that I had not heard of but most are tired old cliches. Perhaps I have read too many self help books...The narration will kill you.

Combining the basics of marketing with cutting-edge concepts in mind control, Vitale shows how salespeople can put customers in a special mental state in which they are more suggestible and pliant. During this "buying trance" the salesperson can help frame and position the way the customer perceives the product, leading to more sales. For daring salespeople who want to make the sale every time, these cutting-edge techniques in persuasion offer the key to incredible success.

This is a great listen. I can't believe all the tips and valuable information I have learned and am using daily on my customers and friends alike. I recommend this book. But he does tend to go overboard upselling. But it is interesting none the less.
