Summary

Based on his landmark research and teachings, Dr. John Demartini has discovered the key to fulfillment in all aspects of life. What is the most important step you can take to achieve the life you've always dreamed of? You might think the answer is something like start saving money, get a better job, find my soul mate, or improve my marriage. Solutions like these might offer temporary satisfaction, but none of them can provide true, lasting fulfillment or help you achieve your unique purpose in life.

The Values Factor shows you how to create a life in which every minute can be inspiring and fulfilling. The first step is to identify what you find most meaningful - the values in life that are most important to you. Once you understand your own unique values and align your life accordingly, you can achieve fulfillment in every aspect of your life: deepening your loving relationships, creating an inspiring career, establishing financial freedom, and tapping into a rich spiritual life.

Dr. Demartini's provocative 13-part questionnaire will reveal to you what you value most. The answers may surprise you! Then, each chapter of this audiobook explains how to align every aspect of your life with your true values, so that you can finally achieve the success that you were capable of all along.

(Vanessa Talbot, Success Guide, Life Expander, Author of Extraordinary You: The Art of Living a Lusciously Spirited, Vibrant Life)

Insightful Read - lots to learn!

Would you listen to The Values Factor again? Why?

Yes - there are so many things that you pick up on that it would be useful to listen to it fairly regularly to keep you on track with the context.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Values Factor?

I like how it is clear Dr Demartini travels around so much and has so many commitments to fulfil but because of his values he applies he seems to do these seamlessly.It makes you realise that you can really achieve so much more every day if you apply your thoughts correctly.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The business chapter on how to lead and inspire your work force. I want to achieve greatness in business so I want to be perceived well but to achieve well at the same time.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Be a better you...

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyable and in some areas, very simplistic but so effective

Absolute game changing book

I’m only a few days through finishing this book and I can already see the life changing impact it will have on my life.
My name is Ben Taggart and I will become a success based on this book and the Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. Watch this space.

Like, WOW!

Utterly revelatory.

I've read lots of these sorts of books. This doesn't pump you up and give you plans and constructs. This just tells you how relationship and behaviour work. Quite brilliant.

Great book with plenty of action steps

This book was great, it explained and clearly broke down the steps needed to understand your highest values and how to overcome ‘problems’.

Whilst there are plenty of action steps and points to do through this book the only thing I would say to anyone reading this is, if you are an action taker and implement any of the suggestions of this book you will need a note pad and be ready to go back and keep referring. In an ideal world there would be some downloads somewhere almost like worksheets that could be applied.

Great book - pity about the voice!

Inspiring book but the voice reading lets it down but that is just my personal opinion. I still got a lot out if it.

one of the most impactful books

I don't write many reviews but I thought this may help someone make the purchasing decision. I found Dr Martini a couple of months ago and have consumed most of his available content online. I have read/listened to over 200 books on self development related topics over the last few years and this ranks as a top 10.

Extraordinary, life changing material. Read it now.

This book carefully explains how our lives are derailed due to an absence of clarity of our highest values. These values govern our behaviour (whether we realise this is happening or not) and if we aren’t clear on what they are, we can feel a range of negative emotions including sadness, anger, loneliness and so on. Worse, we may attribute such feelings to the significant other in our life - ie. blame them!

This amazingly helpful book helps you understand the importance of determining your highest values, how to do this and how to best apply this knowledge to your life so that your relationships, job, career are working for you to near maximum effect. You will be happier, feel more engaged in life and less likely to slip into the trance like state affecting so many people today whereby we just “get through” life and expect disappointment, sadness and being let down.

This knowledge should be available to everyone at an early age. The world would surely be in far better shape with happier more content citizens.

Thank you Dr DeMartini for this important book.

Makes you really think about your values

The book makes you think about your true values. It made me think about life goals in a different matter. It helped me identifying where frustrations in my life are coming from and how to move forward.
However, the author uses lots of "to-do" and "complete this exercise" trying to help the reader identify those values. I don't think it is applicable to apply such exercises and equations into values.
Overall, the book is good with few points I disagree with. Definitely would recommend to anyone who is trying to better shape their life.

MUST READ for alignment in life <br />

Damn good book. Listened to it twice. Going back a third time. You will get a lot of clarity about who you are and what is important to you, and how to approach life with this knowledge.

This actually changed my life

Being a personal development junkie, I consume a lot of content. But of all the content I’ve listened to, this book was one of the most powerful books I’ve read. I immediately reread the book and watched nearly every interview of the author on YouTube (some more then once)! If you are still on the fence, I highly recommend listening to the 43 minute YouTube interview called “secrets to self mastery” for an overview of Dr. Demartini’s teachings.

THIS HELPED ME STOP DOING SOMETHING I HATE

Hey Guys,

I struggled once I got a full time job & didn't feel fulfilled with my life. Even though I was making great money at the time I wasn't happy. This book helped me realize why that was the cases & how to move to a more fulfilling lifestyle and I can't tell you how much of a difference it will have on the way you think about your life. It encourages self awareness, learning about what you naturally gravitate too and aligning your goals according to these natural values.

Are you living a life by your values? if not you are missing out! Thank you so much Dr. Demartini you really are the Doctor the majority of us needed.

A Life Changer

Prior to consuming this book, I thought I had a good handle on the importance of values as priorities in my life. Dr. Demartini’s “The Values Factor” shows us how to take every area of our lives from our career, to our relationships, to our finances, as well as our potential for this life - and beyond - to the next level, with the conscious application of our priority values. If you have a motive now, for rolling up your sleeves and doing the work which goes hand in glove with personal transformation, then you have most assuredly found Willy Wonka’s golden ticket in the pages of this book. If you are “no-fooling” up for this work, and it’s corresponding results - and it’s within your means - I strongly recommend also investing in either the ebook, or the hard copy of this book (as I have), as there are many exercises to complete, and either will reinforce your listening as a workbook.
