I just spent two years of my life recovering from a burn out by listening every possible self help/self development tape I could get my hands into. Brian Tracy, Wayne Dyer, Paul McKenna, Doreen Virtue, The Secret -- you name it. Yes, even some Anthony Robbins.

I knew Michael Neill from the Hayhouse Radio ([...]) and have always loved his very practical, funny and smart advice. I bought his first book You Can Have What You Want right after it was published, but was too exhausted to read it (or anything else) at the time, so I gave it away to someone else who needed it more -- he loved it and got amazing results from it.

Back to this recording. When I heard Michael Neill had finally recorded an audio program about the same principles he talks about in his radio show and books, I ran (ok, drove) to the nearest bookstore and bought it.

It's amazing! No-nonsense, down to earth, yet exceptionally inspiring, thought provoking and touching. Even my husband, who dislikes almost every other author whose tapes I listen, loves this one. When we listen to Effortless Success together, we have to pause the recording basically every other minute to talk about all the ideas that Michael's simple truths provoke on us. How do we know they are true? Because they make us go "but of course!" "that is so true!" "I've always known that but somehow forgot it!"

Since we started to listen this recording couple of weeks ago (yes, we take our time to savor his wisdom), our energy levels have got higher than for years (or maybe ever) and we've both got very inspired, excited and productive. Most importantly, I was finally able to redefine my personal goals after my burn out and I'm happy to follow my inner bliss again.

I wish I would have been able to listen this already two years ago. I would have saved so much money and time and would be so much closer to my WOW-goals. Oh well. Better a little later than never.

Buy this! Listen to it! You won't regret!

UPDATE 4 MONTHS LATER:

OK, I can't give all the credit only to this audiobook, but I feel that it definitely helped us to get on the right track. Here's what has happened since listening this audiobook:

1. My husband sold his first screenplay and is now shooting the movie based on it. In the process he got a great new friend.

2. I quit my day job, went back to my old profession which I had quit after my burn out, visited my native country for the first time for 20 months and got THREE new super-exciting and inspiring projects (that's a lot in my profession!). I wake up happy every morning and am very excited about the future. Plus my finances seem to be finally back on the right track. Yay!

Thank you Michael for such an amazing audio book!

In "Effortless Success", success coach Michael Neill invites the listener to address two fundamental questions: 1) What do you want? and 2) What is stopping you from getting it?

The first half of the program is spent guiding you through a path of self-discovery to help you answer the first question. The second half helps you answer the second question. Filled with lots of exercises and hands-on activities, this 6-CD set is worth much more than its paltry price indicates.

In his easy-going, non-confrontational way, Michael can help you--and you don't have to spend thousands of dollars for a one-on-one session! Stop spending $ on coffees for one week, save the money, and BUY THIS NOW! You will reap the benefits for the rest of your life.

I highly recommend the CDs to be your companion wherever you go. If you want to have what you want in your life, buy these CDs NOW for yourself. After you finish with them, you will want to share them with family members, and even send them to others as gifts.

In one week, I listened to all 6 CDs, and as soon as I would finish one, I would be like a child on Christmas Eve waiting for tomorrow to discover what the next CD had to offer. The most amazing thing is that I continually found something new from the text and stories even in areas I was already familiar with and thought I had a good grasp on. I am curious to see what new nuggets of gold will be uncovered the next time I hear them. I have read two of his published books, (see my Amazon reviews), taken Coaching Mastery seminar by him, and received my NLP practitioner license from London (He was one of three trainers.) As a life coach, not only I, myself, practice his teachings, but also, I share them with my clients. So, before I listened to the CDs, I thought, "Well, I really understand what he is talking about..." WOW! I could not have been more surprised as I learned something deeper, beyond his words this time.

Michael Neill's trained actor's voice sets the tempo, and his enthusiasm and compassion lift up the language, and conveys a much deeper understanding than his talent alone. When you read a book, you read with our own voice, often thinking of the meaning in your own context of what you think is right, so you miss what's beyond the meaning and content, and in the process, what he was trying to convey. His ideas and stories are uniquely his own, and his own delivery lends a totality to his intended communication that creates an aliveness that can only be experienced. Visceral, emotional, and the sensuality of the communication, which is normally not fully present in a written form, in this medium, is amplified to the highest effect.

Another luxurious benefit is this: as he speaks, we can sit back in our most comfortable chair, close our eyes (which I actual did), and go into a quiet state of mind where we turn off our monkey mind that bounces from thought to thought. This way, you can be receptive and more open to what he is actually saying, and you can be present as he takes you to a special place in your mind, that will allow you to be in touch with your true inner voice.

Great program ...

I would like to say that this 6CD set has surpassed my expectations. I knew it would be good because I've enjoyed Michael's radio show and books for over a year now ... I really do believe that the fact that there is so much useful stuff packed into this program that is all geared towards one listener - You - (It's like getting to call in to the radio show but instead of having a few minutes for Michael to coach you, you have 6 hours of focussed attention) makes this by far the best value I've gotten so far out of any book/CD program I've invested in. The value I got from this program was definitely greater the tiny investment I made. The information and inspiration this program contains has been, and I believe will continue to be, life changing in the most enjoyable way.

Thanks Michael.

This is such an amazing lecture!! Each time I listen to it I walk away with something valuable. My life has in fact gotten easier and I'm far more productive, organized and fun. My husband and kids have even noticed the difference.

Like most people I have read hundreds of self-help books and listened to endless CD sets promising to help me achieve my goals and dreams. And although a lot of them had great plans to follow, I just never seemed to move out of my comfort zone. I just laid down till the urge to do something went away. Or my feet were stuck and I just didn't seem to move.

I turned 55 this year and decided I needed to move at least an inch out of my comfort zone toward my dreams. I came across the author when I was listening to Hay House Radio. His voice is very soothing and inspiring and his advice is spot on. He makes you responsible for what you want, rather than saying "Hi I got the program to end all programs."

If you don't have time to read, I strongly suggest you get the CDs or download it to your M3P player. I have Effortless Success on my IPOD and it is six and a half hours of anecdotes and stories to help you get what you want in life and have a great time doing it. There is no pain in his process - only "Gee, why didn't I do this before? It is a lot easier than I thought."

Michael Neill got me off the couch and working toward my dreams. I feel confident I can accomplish completing several projects I have lined up for this year. The fear that kept me frozen in time is gone.

Give his books and this CD set a try. And if you like what you read and hear, visit his web site [...] You will be glad you did.

I didn't think it was possible to cover all the bases of living, and how to live your best life in one little audio book, but Michael Neill has achieved this.
Michael has verbalised the real reason we are hear to live our lives, and that is; to love ourselves, and live our life, for ourselves.
He makes the point wonderfully that if you accept and love yourself just the way you are, you can live a life beyond your wildest dreams and give more than you could ever have imagined possible to the people in your life and even to people beyond your reach as he has with this audio book.
Michael Neill Articulates from the head, shoots from the hip, and delivers from the heart.
Thank you Michael
Johnny K Dublin Ireland, Happy Days, FANTASTIC!

With this set, it's almost like having Michael talking to you, motivating you over a cup of coffee! Michael is the best in his field... and if you can't have a session with Michael, this is the way to go! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this!

I really enjoyed this CD series. I have been a follower of Michael Neill for years on Hay House Radio. He has a way of adding a fresh perspective to old ways of thinking.
