Americans spend more than $11 billion a year on self-help products-everything from books to diet pills to career coaches to seminars. So why-with all this time, money, and energy being spent-are so FEW people living the life they really want? Why are millions of smart, talented, motivated people still going through life with one foot on the brake? Here's the REAL secret: You don't need any more how-to-succeed information to reach your full potential.
The problem isn't lack of motivation or lack of information. The real problem is that most people focus on the "how-to" aspects of success taught by traditional self-help programs, without coming to terms with what productivity expert Noah St. John calls your "head trash"-the subconscious, emotional roadblocks that prevent people from acting on their real hopes, dreams, and ambitions.
In this groundbreaking book, based on work with thousands of clients around the world, Noah St. John has created a remarkable, step-by-step approach that helps you achieve long-term happiness, success, and wealth. In The Secret Code of Success, you will learn how to:
The Secret Code of Success shows that, when it comes to success, the conscious mind is exactly the wrong place to start. It's only when we first conquer the self-sabotage of our subconscious (which accounts for 90 percent of our behavior) that we can truly begin to enjoy a life filled with success. This insight is at the core of The Secret Code of Success and leads to Noah's revolutionary 7-step method for eliminating these psychological obstacles.

I am so pleased that I discovered Noah St John and afformations. I must have listened to this audio a dozen times already. Afformations are life changing and have an immediate effect on how you feel. I highly recommend this book to those who have tried using affirmations and seen no change to their lives.
For more than 15 years I read and heard audios from great success teachers. Most were good or very good.
This is the first audio I heard in my life where the author refers to other previous "traditional success teachers" in such an extremely diminishing way.
Noah presents a practical success framework, with the only very negative view of referring to "traditional success teachers" as almost poor ignorants who never knew questions are more important for success than affirmations. He repeats this near insulting and arrogant view dozens of times and goes to the point of saying that affirmations do not help anyone, using many out of context situations. The funny thing is that he uses affirmations repeatedly to tell people that affirmations, the old school tool of "traditional success teachers" don't work.
Yes, I think you guessed: the probably most used expression in this audiobook is "traditional success teachers" and through this you can see Noah's strategy of constantly comparing himself with other personal motivators. And yes, in my interpretation he's saying blatantly that he's much better than them all. And this total lack of modesty and gratitude towards the world and other great teachers is the dark spot of his audiobook. On my personal view this is highly unethical.
Fortunately the world was saved by Noah's infinitely enlightened mind, who is the only person on earth that discovered questions are a very empowering tool. "Traditional success teachers" didn't know this, poor and ignorant guys, so it was not "their fault" that they didn't really help many people. But wait, don't Anthony Robbins or Brian Tracy and probably many others taught this for years ? Of course they did, they just didn't give it a name. I have to give it to Mr. Noah, it was a very good marketing idea to trademark the name he created for his questions system. This way he can make almost everybody who hears him believe that the substance of what he's teaching concerning questions has only been taught by him in the whole human history.
I couldn't listen to his audio book more that 1,2 hour, it's unbearable to me hearing someone making such a continual effort to tell other personal motivators are no good. Of course Noah is intelligent and he never cites a name, all other personal motivators in the world are put in the same bag of "traditional success teachers". I suspect if he did use the name of some concrete traditional success teachers instead of just "traditional success teachers" he would be involved in a lot of lawsuits.
"Easy to understand and implement"
I enjoy hearing the words spoken, and take notes, especially when the author is doing the reading. ALSO...If you email him he will send you a pdf to print out the 'workbook' questions for your journal-ing efforts, which are key in this. Also...he suggests listening to the book more than once which I will do....I like Audible and the fact you can put memos on the bookmarks. This helps a lot while listening to a self help book.
Many great ideas on what to do when you feel unworthy or can't find your next step.
"Really great stuff!"
I love Noah's ideas, they are really helping me change my life. His reading is also fun and engaging, definitely the best way to experience his teaching and a must have addition to the book.
I am now watching what I tell myself constantly and have found that the occasional negativity is becoming less and less. The idea of asking questions (e.g. afformations) instead of using statements to describe what I intend in my life is a big energetic change that is bringing me the answers in an easier way than before.
Don't miss this audiobook, it will help you no matter what else you know, I've been around the block a few times! :)
"I love this book!"
It seems so simple, but it ( asking questions) instead of making decLarations has really helped to clear my head from negative chatter.
"Engaging and Uplifting"
Engaging and Entertaining. Without constantly looking for support of Scientific Authority, Noah gets right to the point in a way we can recognize ourselves.
Noah has so many, 'well of course!' Moments that make perfect sense. When you think their couldn't possibly be anymore simple answers and solutions, he gives you more. I am about to listen to this book again and buy several copies for my friends! Thank you Noah. I can't wait to see where we go from here!
This has been the most positively impacting book that I have experienced in many years. Noah's work is brilliantly effective.
This book explained the reason humans keep doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. It helped me realize the reasons why we set goals and make great progress for a short time and then give up. The best part is that he gives you a solution to change your life and immediate action steps to take.
"Repeat of others works with annoying examples."
I was sceptical, but though if Jack endorsed him maybe worth while, turned out I was wrong. You will be annoyed. Not a single new idea either.
