Format: Mass Market Paperback
Dr. Waitley reminds us of a truth his grandmother told him, "things don't matter as much as your attitude toward them." This book helps you to gain and sustain the attitude that results in success. Waitley goes on to tell us that his grandmother advised him to follow the lessons of the Bible and model his life on people who have creatively serviced others.
Love is the most valuable gift that can be given he writes, and quickly adds, that it cannot be given by someone who doesn't possess it. Love is an emotion. When we feel it inside, we have something to give. Giving love away is done by successful people regardless of the crowd he notes because, "their own self-worth is stronger than the rejection or acceptance of their ideas by others."
That's a small sampling of the delicious intellectual meal awaiting you in this extremely motivational book. It will fill your mind with the kind of input that will work itself out in desired accomplishments.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Don Waitley makes a seemingly arrogant claim at the onset of "Seeds of Greatness" -this is the only self-help book you'll ever need. Having read hundreds of self-help books, I must concede that Waitley has sound reason for making this claim. Several self-help authors have quoted or used many of Waitley's first-hand accounts of how to achieve greatness.

For example, Waitley actually spoke with the man who interviewed billionaire Mr. Hunt, and Waitley met a woman born with polio who went on to win Olympic gold. Moreover, Waitley listened to cassettes of oft-quoted coach Vince Lombardi, who reportedly said "winning's not everything, it's the only thing". As it turns out, that is not quite what Lombardi said. Waitley feels you in on the facts.

While Waitley's ten points for greatness are inspiring, I was most moved by his use of primary resources. Not to discredit other self-helpers, but Waitley's consistent use of first-hand stories gave "Seeds of Greatness" a richness and credibility that is not easily found in self-help books.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Author Dr. Denis Waitley shows the reader in easy to understand language how to combine positive attitudes with your inherent natural aptitudes and abilities to, among other things:

1. Change your life style for the better.

2. Choose goals and then follow Waitley's steps to attain them.

3. Be a self-manager by building self-reliance, using self-talk, and enhancing your self-esteem.

4. Make the right decisions in your life by asking yourself the three vital questions.

5. How to understand what makes you tick and to be understood.

Dr. Waitley also shows the reader how to gain a fresh perspective of living each new day as the ten best kept secrets of total success are uncovered. Those secrets are the following "seeds":

1. The seed of self-esteem.

2. The seed of creativity.

3. The seed of responsibility.

4. The seed of wisdom.

5. The seed of purpose.

6. The seed of communication.

7. The seed of faith.

8. The seed of adaptability.

9. The seed of perseverence.

10. The seed of perspective.

A very inspirational and motivational treatise. I rate it at five stars without hesitation or reservation.

When I needed encouragement and a new way to behave, My High School teacher Mr. Hall allowed me to borrow the book for a couple of weeks to read it. I read a chapter every day and ever since I learned how to behave better, and even four years later I learn more and more from it and it makes more and more sense. Buy it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In my opinion, Mr.Waitley is the best self help/business leadership speaker in the world. After listening to his tapes, I feel more confident in my personal and business life. He emanates a common sense direction and set of philosophies which are easy to follow and quite infectious. Waitley's humble and non-boastful manner is very effective. I first listened to his tapes in the late 1980's when I was at a critical time in my life, working full-time and going to broadcasting school. His steady and soft-spoken self confidence helped me through some of the tough and lonely times of being a young person struggling in the world. Thank you Denis for your good work! You have helped many people.
