Basic lesson is this: You are a reflection of all of your past thoughts and actions...but you are not your past...its all in your mind stuck leaving you in a rut and this book is the tow truck to help "you" get yourself out.
I've read all the top 40 and probably top 100 personal development books out there. Eventually I was running out of ones to read. And I would still come across recommendations for this book every now and then. So I read it. It's brilliant and I wish I read it a few years ago.
I am a willing open audience as I've previously read all the books and science information this is based on. Yet Tony brought more insight, different compelling articulation, and real world application beyond what I'd read before to have me raving about this book.
It's worth more than the money charged just for the chapter on "rules" and then again for the chapter on "emotions". It's a ridiculous bargain for what I've gained from it and I've since bought it as a Kindle gift for many friends.
It's a shame the Audible version is so abridged and unavailable in a full version. Maybe Tony feels it may take away from his audio products sales. I would love an unabridged Audible version and would buy it for many people as a gift.
One of the themes that Tony constantly teaches is that everything we do is for one of two reasons: increase pleasure or avoid pain. He often uses weight loss strategies as a way to help readers think of ways to use the pleasure/pain principal in their lives. I decided to apply that, and started on a weight loss program, too. Although I wasn’t suffering from being terribly overweight, I had certainly let a few too many pounds slip on over the years. Moreover, I had also moved towards a less healthy diet. By internalizing Tony’s approach, I have not only cut out all processed sugars from my diet (no cakes, cookies, candy) which will lower my chances to get diabetes one day, but I also was able drop about 15 pounds, bringing me almost to my ideal weight (where I expect to be within another month or two).
These are just a few examples of how reading “Awaken” has improved my life. There are many more, and I am just one of millions of people who’ve had their lives improved because of Tony Robbins. I strongly suggest this book to everyone.
I jokingly made a list of qualities I wanted in a person as well as a list of things I would not tolerate in someone. Tony suggests a much shorter list. But I was determined to get what I really wanted! I ended up with a list of 28 qualities I’d like to have in a partner. I laughed as I continued to write and thought to myself, “No wonder I’m single!”
About one month later I met someone I really liked. By this time I had completely forgotten about the list. After dating for a couple of weeks, I remembered the list and I went back to read it. Not only was she was everything on the list, but I ended up adding 2 more things because of her.
There’s so much more in this book than a plan to find a great match. I plan on reading this book again!
The infomation provided is good, hearing it read by Tony gives you addition intensity to the work, but unfortunately, the Audiobook is Abridged, and shorter than I would have liked. It is a great companion to listen to in the car, but you also really need to get the book to get all the information.
