Summary

Stuck in a rut? Lack the discipline to accomplish your goals? Always find yourself waving the white flag in surrender? Having a string of shitty days, weeks, months, maybe even years? If you answered "yes" to any of those, then this is the audiobook you've been waiting for. 

The PMA Effect teaches the methods for achieving your goals. No matter how high you set the bar, it comes down to one vital principle: developing a positive mindset. Change your mindset. Change your life. PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) can sustain you through any difficult circumstances. You'll learn to deal with stress more efficiently. You'll develop the skill set and determination to never quit at tasks, to push through fear and manifest your thoughts, hopes, and dreams into reality. In essence, The PMA Effect is the blueprint to becoming that badass, super-human that lives inside each and every one of us.

Dharma, Karma, health, strength and attitude

A very enjoyable book, once you get over the shock that it sounds like one of the Goodfellas are narrating it. John Joseph has had a tough upbringing and had a lot of bad times. Thankfully he has overcome these times and flourished as a human being since. He isn't preaching or forcing opinion except maybe on the veganism, but telling us how he did it and why he thinks it is the road to a happier healthier lifestyle and a better world.
It is the kick in the ass a lot of people need, including myself and I have taken a lot from his words, and will relisten to this a lot more than once to make it sink in.

Wow When John Joseph Talks I listen

After years of listening to books this is my first ever review, If there was ever a book that talked straight to me this is it.
I'm starting the book again and feel this will become my go to listen, John says it as it is no BS, that's what i need someone that gives me a shake and slap and tells me to wake the F up, Everything he says inspires to get my shit together stop with the excuses and grab life by the horns, pay extra attention to what I eat drink and think and to help others along the way, to never quit and become PRO.

True words spoken with great passion

I loved this book, John is so passionate about helping people and teaching what he has learnt and it was so good to hear this book in his own words. There were many times I choked up listening as his words are so true. You won’t be disappointed with this book.

Highly inspirational listen!

A great Listen! I’ve followed John’s work and lifestyle for a long time, so for me there was some hype around this book and I was intrigued as to what it would be like. I was not disappointed at all, John has written and read the book excellently. Sharing his knowledge and experiences with PMA through a great journey. A great book for those looking to improve their wellbeing both mentally and physically.

Loved the performance

while the information in this book is nothing new. The way it's presented is captivating in a must-listen especially doing workouts and other activities it will keep you motivated. I plan to listen to it a few more times because there are hidden nuggets within the story's that I need to be reminded of constantly.

Great food for thought!

John never disappoints. Another amazing book!
As a bonus, the narration is very compelling and done by the author himself.

hits the mark

very powerful and inspiring. Very likely to impact the non-believers, tough guys, "my life if fine" hard heads. there is no fluff and flowers... just a call to get off your butt and take hold of life, good friends,good habits and lose the CRAP. great job John- yes hubby is listening also!! unbelievably.... Thanks for all you do and inspire

This book will make the day less depressing

Absolutely loved it and so glad Audible had it available. Listened to it while I wasn't feeling great, but still had work to get done and it was exactly what I needed to lift the cloud so I could breathe easier, instead of trudging through my tasks. John Joseph's heart is strong enough to carry the reader/listener to higher ground to see with more clarity.

Wow, once I started this book I could not stop

It was so good I’m gonna listen to it all over again starting now , and will listen to it whenever I need it.
Wow. Awesome book.
I discovered this book after listening to Rich Rolls “Finding Ultra”
As soon as I heard the first few sentences I thought, oh crap I’m not gonna be able to listen to this guy because it sounds like he’s yelling into the microphone , but I quickly got over that soon as I discovered how deep everything he says , is.

This book is really gonna help flip the switch and let me get back to what’s really important in life.
Thank you John for writing this book and more importantly narrating this book as only you could do.
Maybe I’ll see you at the next Death Ride in California. It’s a piece of cake for peeps like us. Thank you.

A welcoming slap in the face

It’s impossible to listen to JJ and not realize how much crap you take on a daily basis, dictated by no one other than your own self. I love this book because it continuously challenged me to change the direction I’m giving to work, family, friends, eating habits, exercise, amongst others. Before this book I had boxes for each of these, each with specific ways of dealing with them individually... that was so exhausting and results were usually not even up to 3/4 of expected. Now I can say with certainty they can all go into a big PMA Box which can handle all with the care and attention they respectively need, and I can feel myself with plenitude in the process. Still along way to go for me, but I’m loving this new mindset and I can’t wait for tomorrow to kick some.
