Mr. Anthony Robbins begins the book by taking us along into a particular Thanksgiving Day in his life, when a certain event changed the way he thought about life, forever. The book is more than a collection of the best inspiring ideas - it is also a good step by step guide to enriching our lives.
Actually we can get through the book pretty fast and that is a plus, since we don't lose interest at any point of time. The book has a lucid style and a straight forward approach.
The book talks about the following -
1. Ways to tap the power inside to change anything in our life
2. Great reminder statements to go over when we are overwhelmed by feelings which pull us down
3. How our decisions can change our life
4. How to keep focusing
5. How to ask the right questions - This is a very valuable chapter - it has 5 'problem solving questions', 7 'Morning power questions', and 3 'Evening power questions'.
6. How we can find empowering words for commonly observed negative emotions/expressions
7. Metaphors that make a difference
8. Effective Goal setting and 'Training the brain' so that it knows that the goal is a happening thing.
9. The Ten day mental challenge - which is actually a neat mental game with its own rules, a clear goal, and the effect it is going to have on you. This game wraps up and covers all the concepts discussed in the entire book. Mr. Anthony Robbins says that this exercise turned his life right-side up which shows that it is a time-tested and proven exercise/game.Read more ›
I found the book quite useful from a couple of different perspectives. Some of the changes that Notes From A Friend suggests are really small distinctions, but taken together they can have significant impact. One of the examples from Notes From A Friend are the questions that you ask yourself. Notes From A Friend suggest asking questions that lead to the solution of a problem rather then victim questions such as why did this happen to me. Another distinction is how we view failures. Failures will occur if we try anything useful. It is really our reaction to these failures and what we learn from them that matters.
Not content to Notes From A Friend just be an intriguing read Robbins challenges the reader with a ten day program that is a powerful application of the essence of the book. If you want to know more about Tony Robbins, his techniques and are not afriad a book that gives homework assignments I recommend this book.
What if "unleash the power within us" is what we need to be successful? It sounds too simple, but many of us including myself, have no idea how powerful we truly are. This book effectively showed us that we can shape our destiny by shifting focus on solutions, instead of problems. Having a clear vision of what we want, with a sense of flexibility in pursuing our goals, and continuing to take massive, positive, constructive actions, we can empower and enrich our lives and others' lives around us in all aspects!
A concept from this book particularly caught my eyes; "the past doesn't matter. Whatever hasn't worked in the past has nothing to do with what you'll do today. What you do right now is what will shape your destiny." It reminded me of my favorite authors; Ariel and Shya Kane and their books Being Here: Modern Day Tales of Enlightenment and Working on Yourself Doesn't Work: A Book About Instantaneous Transformation. The Kanes presented the idea of "Living in the moments", showing "the current moment is all we have and living in the moment is all it takes to have our life transformed." It is so freeing to be able to let go of all the "I should have done this" and know that what happened in the past is irrelevant to now and now is all we have! We have absolutely everything we need right now to create our lives.
These three authors are magical. I highly recommend them to anyone that wants to have a magical life and to discover his and her brilliance!
