Summary

Many people have dreams they would like to realise and things about their lives that they would like to change. Relatively few have the mental strength to break outside their comfort zone and take the steps needed. Fear, self-doubt, lack of confidence, or simply being overawed by the tasks ahead can stop you from achieving your true potential. This guide shows how to develop your mind and push past the obstacles that stand between you and your goals.

This audiobook is based on the author's DVD of the same title.

make a statement and fail to elaborate

I like Iain, but it's a bit of a rehash from the podcast with elevator music in-between segments. I wish you'd gone further into detail with examples and application, personal anecdotes etc.

Waste of a credit

Nothing new here just a very short rehash of "ideas" borrowed from other authors - heard it all before.

The only plus point is the author gives this in a very friendly and conversational style but overall very disappointing.

Nice voice

If a heavy scottish accent telling you you can do anything doesn't get you feeling good, I don't know what will. Production quality was pretty poor, but the content was worth the money.

:42 Minutes? What a joke.

I bought this because I loved the book. The book is 192 pages so I should have questioned why only :42 minutes? You get one chapter worth of the entire book. How can they do that? What a rip off. Save your money!

Great lessons in a nutshell

A word with an experienced and wiseman is worth a tonnes of books. At least this is how I see this book. This book showed me a way to overload my comfort zone and to take positive rests. The ideas here may not be new. But sometimes same thing gives an altogether new insight when it is received at a moment when we are ripe for it. Perhaps I was ripe for something which the author was trying to convey. Since this is a short book, I can repeat listening till I have internalized the points which I want to absorb. - Haresh Raichur.
