"Yet another profound and powerful tool in the Robbins arsenal of self-awareness. It has been an enormous source of strength and insight for me both personally and professionally." (Peter Guber, former Chairman and CEO, Sony Pictures)
"Anthony Robbins is the 'ultimate coach' for that special breed of men and women who will never settle for less than they can be." (Pat Riley, NBA "Coach of the Decade")
Tony Robbins is still one of the best gurus out there, and this was one of his original programmes. Reading his books was not as powerful for me as listening to his actual recordings. To actually hear Tony's enthusiasm, energy and passion in your ears, in stereo, is far more engaging. Even listening to a ten or twenty minute segment while walking to the bus stop can fire you up. You have an edge over most people who listen to their own negative inner voice, or replay negative comments from their past. In this programme, he covers 'pattern interrupts' and how to erase those old 'mental tapes' many people play on a loop to themselves. Break old patterns and learn new ones.
Copious reader and listener of most genres. Enjoy personal development books, fiction, Sherlock Holmes and real crime. Eclectic or what?
This book, shortened as it it, is ideal for train journeys. I listen to it when I know I am going to have a difficult day and find it very helpful.
Listening to Tony's story as a child and having no food yet someone took the initiative and delivered a full Thanksgiving feast for no charge. This inspired Tony to provide many 1,000s of these food baskets for other needy families at Thanksgiving.
Anything by Tony Robbins is awesome to me.
Yes. This book is long enough to explain the method but short enough to get you fired up into taking action.
This is a short version of alot of the books that I read. Also, Anthony Robbins is very like Jim Rohn when he speaks. He is, however, very much unique and his presentation - in my opinion - is amazing. My mentor.
His delivery and passion could sell absolutely anything.
His story about how he cried, believing that his life was worthless - then not too many years later when he arrived at his seminar and thousands of people were fighting to see him. Result!
If you want to change your life or any aspect of it - listen to this. It is the shortest self-development audiobook - but the strongest to get you motivated to make more progress and develop a plan to succeed.
Reviewing stuff i've bought
Yes, it was awesome. I was so pumped-up after listening to it in the car. It is concise and does not waffle on, Tony's delivery is powerful and funny. This is what all self-help books should aspire to.
Stop procrastinating and making excuses. Just make a decision and do it.
Friggin' amazing. Just listen to it and change your life.
Best book in print or listened ever. I may as well cancel my Audible subscription as nothing will beat this. (P.s In the week since I have listened to this, I made the decision to reduce junk in my diet (mainly snacks) and have lost 4 pounds in weight)).
"NO ONE DOES IT BETTER"
On those endless TV infomercials, Tony Robbins comes across as an insincere, hyperactive pitchman who's main goal appears to be separating losers from from their hard-earned cash. The really astonishing truth, however, is that Robbins is not only legitimate, but a source of insights and techniques that work better than those of ANY other motivational or spiritual guru whose work I've encountered. I had a difficult time at first overcoming Robbins' high-intensity speaking style. But once I began stopping the tape to respond to his questions and actually applying his techniques (a combination of Neuro-Associative Conditioning and goal-setting wisdom), my life went through a major transformation. I continue to return to his work when my emotional muscles need strengthening and am always surprised at the solidity of the "science" behind what he does. This particular abridgment is concise and powerful and worth its low price many times over.
The first 18 minutes of this program was Tony introducing himself and being very vauge on what he can do for you in this audio.
Here's the entire program, in summary:
1. Decide what you want.
2. Take Action to go get it.
3. Notice what works and what doesn't.
4. If it doesn't work, try something else.
WOW! Brilliant! Thanks, Tony!!
The most helpful "take-away" I got from this audio was how you can get RICH by re-purposing old content from other programs and selling it as a separate program. The rest of this audio program is bits and pieces of his other programs re-purposed, and mashed together.
"Not worth it"
I was expecting so much more. It was such a let down. I went out and bought the book afterwards to see if it lost something as an audio book, it certainly did. The 90 minutes didn't do it justice.
If this were the entire, unabridged book. This is only equivalent to about 1/3 of the book, which is dense in material. In this audiobook, you get a very short, shallow view of Robbins' coaching methods.
Yes, but only online as videos, which are more apt to be short-form.
"Abridged was way too abridged"
Too short on substance. I felt cheated. I hope the written product is much better than this was. Not worth buying this audio version.
"An early Robbins work"
This audio was really helpful for me. There are some nice motivational phrases, however doing the exercises will get you the most benefit.
I've heard that since this book Robbins has changed his style, preferring to focus completely on your motivation toward a goal, rather than in this book he also leverages your need to be motivated away from a situation - such as poverty, or neglect.
In his more recent works you might find his style has evolved with the research he's done on motivation and goals?
"Tony Robbins is a master"
This is an excellent listen. Tony Robbins is not only a motivational speaker, but he is also a psychologist that helps you attain the mindset of a highly successful person. While listening to these tapes, I felt like I had a secret insight into the many luminaries of our society--Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Oprah Winfrey, among others--and what kind of thought processes and stamina they possessed in order to acheive all that they have.
I feel that I can become a highly successful person now too, with some practice. The only limitations that exist are those that I set for myself.
"Not a New Approach"
It's a short book to motivate people to think about their goals, be committed to them (not just hope they will happen), take actions, assess the results (to measure the effectiveness of those actions), and adjust their plans until their goals are achieved. There is nothing new about this approach. It's more for people who need a push from someone whom they view as a successful role model get started.
"His methods work!"
I used these methods 10 years ago to quit smoking.
I'm glad I could get "Awaken the Giant Within" on my ipod!
"Bring clarity and strategy to your life!"
Anthony Robbins is the authority on "Life Mastery". I recently bought the newly revised copy of Awaken the Giant Within which made me hesitant to buy this audiobook.
But Anthony cuts through all the extra, unneeded content within the audio book and gets straight to the point. I still have the hard copy for reference which is great.
I highly recommend this book for someone who wants to be able to formulate and articulate the things they do in life an why they do them. Anthony gives unbelievable strategy for accomplishing everything you could ever want.
