Reasonably good

This is the first of Robin's books I've listened to, or read. I felt a lot of what he said was good, but he refers to his other books a bit too much, trying to sell them.
None of the things he mentions in the book are groundbreaking either, mostly just good common sense put into words.

Listen repeatedly

This is such an easy listen with life-changing information. Definitely on my listen repeatedly list. I bought the second book as soon as it came out to continue down such a positive path.

Great book and great listening. Thanks Robin.

This great book by Robin Sharma gave me a sense of direction and confidence to handle life and day to day living with great joy. I need to read it once a year to maximize my take. Thanks, Rodin - Thanks, Audible.

Not much substance

I was hopeful but the complete disconnect with reality doesn’t work in the real working world.

Standing Ovation and Slow Clap, Robin Sharma.

It's not every day that you come across a book you just have to finish. This is the case for me on this book. Like everyone else, I've encountered Robin Sharma on "The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari". I have always been amused by how he uses analogy in ideas I normally complicate and how he influences me that they are actually quite simple. Also, he's reminded me to be tolerant and kind in the most unobtrusive kind of way. There's some sort of a "spiritual renewal" felt after reaching the end of the book. It feels as though the values that I was taught and have always believed in when I was younger had resurfaced and it's an extremely good thing. If this were a book-reading done in person, there's no doubt I'd have stood up and clapped slow as a show of appreciation.

Great for falling asleep

Incredibly cheesy and cliche attempt at motivational.

best part - I fell asleep while listening and woke up knowing I haven't missed anything interesting

Narrating is not working

Struggled to finish. the voice makes it sounds like is some kind of a children good night story not a personal development book. I just couldn't focus on content such a shame because I do love the author.

Short chpts add daily value

Robin’s work continues to astound me! I did enjoy this format - made it very easy to listen for 2-10 minutes each morning for a boost and tangible tidbits and lessons to munch on each day. Adams voice is also Uber complimentary to this content. xx

Loved this book. Listened to it twice and filled a note pad with inspirational comments and how I can change the way I live my life.

It has sure made a difference.
