The ability to make decisions is central to strong living-yet many frankly admit that they are chronically indecisive. Well, they think they are; they just haven't made up their minds. Sound familiar? In this audio book, Dr. Barker shows how indecisive people are failure-prone, as he explores the decision-making process in the individual, especially the role of the subconscious mind in either abetting or thwarting every conscious mind decision. He then provides specific steps to shift the balance of decision-making power in your favor. Listening to The Power of Decision may well prove to be one of the best decisions you ever made.

Once again, a title that hides its "spiritual" side. By spiritual it actually means quotes from the bible that to a practicing synic / agnostic find uncomfortable.
For those that are happy with the whole jesus / bible thing...you will love it.
This book seems to be the Anthony Robbins of the Christian self-help books.
I can see how it will be great for those who believe, for those who dont, you'll end up having to mentally ignore the lines such as: "as Luke says in verse blah blah..."
Not for me
I have a large collection of self improvement programs and must say, The Power of Decision has been (still is) the most effective. People like me (chronic procrastinator, indecisive) have always found making decisions quite stressful due to fear of making the wrong one. But, this book helped me realise that deciding on acting or not acting is still a decision. So in order to move forward in life you still have to decide.
I specially loved the affirmations in each chapter, and listen to it regularly. I learned to believe in my decisions and stick by them, if it (decision) doesn't work, i don't get upset, i just see it as feed back and try a different approach, but still believing that i would succeed. That is believing in my decision! Which has helped improve my relationships both at work and at home.
"I hate whack narrators, that ruin books"
I read the original book, and the narrator, totally ruins it, he sucks, I don't like hearing forewords, prefaces, and introductions, by people,, who totally destroy and manipulate the original text and ruins it,
He is garbage, and I hate with extra altered text is added to books, if you would change Shakespeare, why ruin another authors work?
Yes they need to get back to the basics, and drop this garbage
"An Enduring Blueprint for Success"
I have listened to it at least 4 times and will continue to until it sinks into my everyday living.
ThIs book provides a clear and definitive path for successful living.
"Not a Step By Step Program for Decision Making"
If you really want a book about making decisions, this is not it. It does not have any kind of practical process for actually making decisions. This book reminds me of The Secret; it talks mainly of your mind being part of the infinite, adding quotes some bible verses. I ended up forwarding through a lot of it after several chapters. This is one interesting quote: "Money is the process, not goal. Money is God in action. It is the means by which the infinite circulates in my world affairs giving me ease and joy. Money is an idea in the mind of God, the idea of circulation and ease. I am an idea in the mind of God and these two ideas now coalesce, therefore I am money."
This is a practical guide of accomplishing great things in life. it's instructions on getting out of your own way. Raymond Charles Barker uses simple, precise language to convey his ideas inspiring ones to follow suit. The message is to be clear, steadfast in one's pursuit of one's goals.
"Wow awesome book!"
I listened to this book in one setting because I couldn't put it down. Can't wait to put into action what I learned!
"seems simple and logical"
R.C. Barker makes the process very easy to comprehend. leaving the choice to succeed clear.
