Excellent read

I have come across book many times and never really paid attention to it. It came yet again in my inbox and was on sale, I said what the heck and purchased. I do believe in a higher stronger power and I know that I was being pushed to get this book one way or another. This has. Wen one of the most informative and important insights into my thinking and how things seem “real” and like they are “law” in your brain. I kind of feel like this book comes in a demos a lot of the structures that I have built up and couldn’t see a way to change them bc they were just stuck. I honestly feel like things have been unlocked and other beliefs have been hit with a wrecking ball so I can start over and restructure some things that I never could see in a different light. I purchased it on kindle yesterday as well and stayed up till 3am reading. I even had dreams of me looking and being in situations where I stood back and tried to see my beliefs as well as whom ever else I was talking to in my dream. It’s a wonderful read and I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a deeper and happier understanding of our thoughts and beliefs. Thanks Dave!

Unclear general idea, who is the target audience?

When I read a book I'd like to have a clear description of the main thesis or idea behind the book. Like "Building the right routines can help you achieve your goals", "Being ready to pivot your business into another direction when circumstances change can be the difference between success and failure", etc. I'm having trouble seeing this for this book. Maybe it would be "Thinking about and changing the way you think can help you achieve your goals", and although that's a perfectly fine idea, it seem so obvious that I wonder who the target audience for this book is. If you're on Audible listening to these kinds of books already, you probably already get it and what you'll get here are some stories about how some people challenge preconcieved ideas that you might find enjoyable and maybe useful as stories to remember. But I don't think you'll find anything revolutionary in this book. Maybe it's better of as a gift to someone you know who maybe has a little more unflexible approach their own ways of thinking and haven't yet realized that how you think is under your control and often needs to be managed.

Outstanding Reminder: Our Beliefs are Not Reality

Concise and profound. Congratulations to the author and narrator for successfully creating an audio book experience that I am anxious to share with family and friends to spark important discussions about the differences in how we see and experience the world we live in. Seems so timely as we cope with COVID, and approach the most divisive presidential election of my lifetime so far.

No

The narrator did a great job. However the content was just a lot of circular reasoning with the same words & concepts thrown at you over and over. Like a really excited salesman with a limited vocabulary.

good Concepts

Can be useful to create change in your life but certainly more difficult in real life than in writing. Well narrated and and written

About this book

Great insights on personal evaluation and growth. Learned a lot about how beliefs shape my world especially the limited view. Feels like I broke through the ceiling and free to experience life. Highly recommended reading
