Waitley presents material in an easy to read fashion. His points are excellent, and his book is indeed worthy of being on every individual's book shelf. Whether you have experienced anxiety, depression, low self esteem, negative thoughts, relationship problems, or difficulty in accepting the simplest of compliments--this book is for you. This author helps readers delve into our interpretations and live more functionally by thinking more rationally. Yes-- this is the time to smell the roses. It's not what we don't have--but rather what we do have! I recommend this book without hesitation, as being undoubtedly the best book I have ever read.

Format: Audio Cassette
Enjoying tapes, especially on self improvement, has become a part of my daily commute. I have become more critical of their content in the process. This is my second audio tape from this author and I must admit that he is among my least favorites.
Mr Waitley stlye is similar to that of a football coach with too many 'one liners' we have all heard while someone humms 'America the Beautiful' in the background. It became irritating and difficult to maintain attention to his words. He is also too wordy to get his point across.
I am sure there are people who appreciate this man's style and may find him dynamic. I found him less knowledgable and making up for it with his cheerleading analogies.
I won't buy any more of his tapes. I prefer Brian Tracy for the same subject matter.

The Psychology of Winning cassettes are wonderful! I listened to them many times over the period of a couple of years and overtime, I found I had developed into a more confident person. I expected positive outcomes and that is exactly what I achieved. I am a different person in many ways. I approach life differently and others respond to me differently. I recommend these tapes to everyone who desires to break out of the self-defeating pattern they may have developed in their approach to life. These tapes are the BEST

I guess I've just read too many books of this type. There was nothing there that I hadn't already seen in one form or another. I guess the ones I've read have done their magic, since I can agree with Dr. Waitley on everything he says you need to do. It works! However, it doesn't hurt to hear it again in someone else's words. If your "winning attitude" needs some support, this is an easy read.

I'd listened to a sample tape of this when I was in high school (1991). I listened to the tape so much as a kid that it fell apart. I like it a lot. It's amazing what the power of a positive mind can do. The relentless grind of time had sort of worn me down. I feel like I have new wind in my sails and I'm starting a second small business and I stay positive for the majority of things throughout my day. I don't let things get to me and I don't dwell on all the bad stuff. You gotta have a dream to make a dream come true. I think this CD can help you in all aspects of your life. If you're reading this, you must be checking into the subject. Some samples of this were on youtube at one time. I think it's worth buying. Best wishes in all you do.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first came across the works of Denis Waitley in late 1996, as I began my first steps towards entrepreneurship. It was via audio tape, which contained most if not all of the contents of this book, nonetheless, here was a complete stranger telling Me: I could succeed, I could achieve, I could do things - encouragement I was not getting from my immediate family, my peers, my "friends" at that time.
Someone once said: You will become like the information you input into your mind and the people you associate with. If that's the truth, then, I am indeed one step closer to where I wish to be in my life, and YOU can be there, too.

I usually have the habit of highlighting books while reading, but i've never underlined a single letter in this book. Why? because every sentence is like a quote, i've read it 3 times... and every time i read it, i found something new. Buy it!!!

Although there are many authors who promote personal development, few have the credentials that Dr. Denis Waitley has. And few, if any, disclose the the techniques o f the most highly successful people in the world, from top executives, Olympic athletes, POW's and scientists. Dr. Waitley shows us that total success is an ongoing process that is cultivated, nourished and shared.
Another unique quality about Denis Waitley is that he truly cares about you. He wants you to win at life and The Psychology of Winning will show you exactly how to win in life. Great book. One that needs to be read again and again.
