Reviews

Positive mental attitude

(5 stars)

The book, and many others conveys the notion that your wellbeing will be sifnificantky improved by considering, focusing and acting in a positive and proactive way. I agree. In addition rather than thinking on the needs of the one. It is proposed that this attitide is used to develop the self AND others and why not, what ever you focus upon, should not that be inclusive of others. The principles conveyed here are sound even of you believe that the mystical limitless resources are a falacy. Live you life with a positive attitude for youself and others. And you and others will develop. It is you who decides and it is your responsibility to guide others as well as provide the opportunity to others to do the same. But you can lead a horse to water, you can not make him drink.

OPEN MINDED

(5 stars)

I find listening to this I am more focused on what I want, which inevitably has you going in the right direction and the confidence to continue pushing forward. Listen with an open mind and you might find yourself listening to this book more than once. It helps

(3 stars)

I don't understand how the author can say we must not read books that talk of the end of time and of suffering and yet he so frequently quotes from the Bible... I like the concept of fairness, abundance and gratitude that he is promoting though.

i love this book.

Is this a joke?

(0.5 stars)

Is this a joke? is this a religion? is this an attempt at the beginnings of a religion (subsequently failed)? It is clearly the ignorant rambling of an ignorant author, ignorant of the lack of resources outside of America, knows not what science means, constantly referring to the Bible, constantly committing argumentative fallacies, in particular taking the one for the whole and straw man, there is not an ounce of science in this book!...

Forget everything you think you know and then read this book

(5 stars)

Its very important for a reader to have complete faith in author and just do what he says. Forget everything you know till now about who to live life and then read this. As a nuisance, as child being taught about Newton's laws. He doesn't questions if Newton was right or wrong he just believes and that's what you and me should do after listening to this.

A great book. enjoyed it. So

(5 stars)

A great book. I just stumbled on it and really enjoyed it. It's emphasis on being positive and optimistic on your set vision. Spending more time and contemplating on the possibilities, being a creator than6a competitor are very applicable and ways of thinking for me. Lets me go and get rich... See you all later
