Best self help/personal development cd-set ever!
on February 26, 2008
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!
