it's not that i didn't enjoy the book and some of the ideas were great however it felt more like a self help book than a management improvement (skills and techniques) book.
"Di's point of view"
Absolutely facinating. I played it on my way to work and home again. I was so inspired and motivated by this book I spoke of it over dinner with my friends. One of my friends said that the author's name was familiar.....she sat a while and blurted out "did he write a book called The Monk who sold his Ferrari? Why yes he did - he mentions it in this book I listened to today. She then went on to say that it changed her life and the way she goes about her daily tasks. She has tried to get her daughter to read it. Her daughter is a drug user and she wanted her to have that life changing experience. Well I said, maybe it is through your life changing experience that you can live by example to her. She will see it if she is meant to. Just love her until you burst. Robin Sharma certainly is a motivator. He is because he lives out every day what he speaks of. This was my first audible experience and I am hooked.
To all my couch potato friends I would, but not to those who already know most of the basics to self motivation - which start by just getting off the couch and keeping on top of world events and global market changes.
Maybe some key information that was new news to me.
I was impressed with the narrator more than the actual content. He was articulate, had a nice voice to listen to throughout the lecture and sounded believable. He was telling his own success story and he is a go-getter. I liked that.
nope. It's a motivational speech that that is of such a length and subject matter that does not belong in a movie.
"Jam packed with good info"
Yes, there is so much info in there and it goes so fast. You'll need (and want) to listen to this audio several times over.
Great tips similar to that of Zig Zigler, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn and many others
Very energetic and conversational.
Short audio but filled with great, useful info to be worthwhile.
"Simple language and excellent points"
Love it. Simple, direct, easy to follow, can right points and do some actions. I am now interested to listen to his other books.
"Not bad at all for free audio book"
Despite some of the negative reviews I liked this audiobook. Yes, there was a lot of self-promotion but I think that was mostly in the beginning. If you are familiar with a lot of Robin Sharma's work I suspect that this would be too general for you but for me it was new and I got a lot out of it for a free product!
"Very good, Easy to understand and apply"
Very down to earth, easy to apply, easy to follow.
This is a book I definetely would listen to again and again. Very good
"Can't believe this was free!"
I've paid for many self-help books before, in many varying lengths and topics, and I have to say, for the time and effort put into this audiobook, Robin Sharma has a winner here. The topic was clear throughout, and the message that was delivered was a powerful one. The stories were compelling, and they really were heartfelt. I actually almost teared up a couple of times because I was so in tune to the message. Robin has a good pace and tone to his narration, which is prime key for an audiobook of this nature. He told the stories like he was actually telling the stories, not like he was reading them. That makes a big difference in the quality of attention that an audiobook like this would get.
Thank You Robin, for allowing us to have this wonderful piece of audio for free. I will recommend it to as many as I can.
Robin Sharma gives good advice and he's down to earth and warm. So in short, this is a good pep talk for all leaders - and would be leaders. Some of us don't have a choice, but Robin gives some simple words to live by in an emphatic way.
So to sum up: He's Passionate, It's Free, What are You Waiting for? Download!
What a bad audio book. The author put together self-promoting material with very little content. The pointers are shallow without much content. Although I got this audio book for free, it was not worth the hour spent listening to it. Save yourself an hour...
"The Same Old Stories"
The book title is the best part of the book. Mr. Sharma repeat the same old motivational stories we heard many times through different communication channels. This book is good if you are new (really new) to the motivational talk. I do not see any thing new that worth my time.
"Just get on with it!!!"
Someone who loves himself less and actually wants to get to the content
I spent the first 10-15 minutes of this listening to how he has helped so many people and his techniques are used in so many companies - name dropping like he's got Blue Chip Tourette's. I couldn't take it any longer and just turned it off.
This is one of the audiobooks I listen to at least once per year. Just an hour stacked with treasures and insights on leadership.
Get it, listen to it, apply it, listen to it again, apply it more.
"Very informative and sencere"
I like he sincerity of Robin and willingness to share and help other seekers of knowledge and insights..
"I need more!!!"
If I could get this every month, I'd really love it. I was really inspired and blessed. Thanks Robin.
"Lots of rambling garbage - lack of content"
He spends the first half of this telling you about things he's going to tell you . Very boring . Half an hour of my life I'll never get back
feeling very inspired now to go to work and be a better person.
I cried at the part about the washer woman who gave away her money
Very very inspirational, I've taken an awful lot from it. Has guided me not only in my career but also in my personal life. Thank you
A truly insightful & empowering book. Listening to this makes me want to be the best person I can be.
"Excellent life enhancer"
Easy to listen too and packed with great ideas and life changers, well worth a hour of your time.
"Motivates you 2 b... like in a title"
not scientific, not unique, not revolutionary. though, you will listen from the very first minute to the last one, you will enjoy motivational speaker style, you may finally reflect and do right changes. it can be your important small step forward or mental revolution. worth to take a risk and test yourself.
