Overcome self-sabotaging inner thoughts
on October 18, 2007
I first came across Joe Vitale's material back in the late 1990s when e-commerce began to take hold on the Internet. Personally, I find his style to be a bit overblown. But that doesn't mean his stuff doesn't work. It just means Joe is very passionate about what he teaches. And for a guy who was once homeless but now is a millionaire, such passion should be expected.
For most people, this book will, if put to use, make a profound difference. Most of us are replaying negative, self-defeating internal scripts in an endless loop. This book provides insight into eliminating self-sabotaging inner dialogue and replacing that with thoughts and expectations that lead to positive results.
This book is divided into three Parts.
Part Three is basically promotional material for Vitale's other products. Normally, that's not a good thing in a book. But in this case, it seems like a natural and logical way to conclude the book because it helps the reader take the next steps.
Part One is the tutorial. Here is where Vitale explains the concepts. He goes into what they are, what problems they solve, and why they work.
Part Two is the exercises portion. It consists of 10 Chapters, each describing one of ten "clearing methods" and providing actual exercises so you can put them to use.
If you have found yourself frustrated when pursuing your goals, if you have been blindsided while struggling to make something happen (such as career advancement), or if you seem to have a streak of bad luck, this book will show you the key to changing any of those situations. That is not to say this book is for losers. It is for people who want to do better but somehow keep finding their path blocked. That's a pretty large group of people! Joe Vitale has dedicated his life to making that group much smaller.
