"A rare book in the self-help field - it gives you the facts and the information you need without all the excess nonsense!" (Dr. Julianne Friers, Chicago Tribune)
"Straight to the point with honest, practicable and easy ways to relieve the pain of low self-esteem and help you live a normal happy and healthy life. I cannot recommend this book highly enough." (Nonfiction Book of the Month May 2016, Sydney Herald)
Practical, great advice, useful and i would go as far as saying life-changing. For me anyway.
My issues with anxiety, self-esteem, social awkwardness are hugely better after going thru this book twice. For this i will be forever grateful.
The narration was excellent, which made the points and advice so much easier to implement into my daily life.
Cry a lot, but in the best possible way - as I knew i was hearing things that would FINALLY start to make me feel better.
Very very good book. The best book I have heard or read in this genre by a long long way. I have been dealing with esteem / happiness / (even depression) issues most of my life. Something felt lacking. I found social situations difficult. I felt undervalued. Relationships, work and all the other things people take for granted were difficult for me.
I got this book a month ago and it has sincerely changed my life for the better in so many ways. I liked that the advice it gave was PRACTICAL and easy to implement into my daily life. You do have to work at it and nothing happens overnight but I really did start to feel better immediately upon starting to listen to this book. I was not alone anymore.
For helping me or mind books..number one, without a seconds doubt.
Top class production, obviously professionally recorded, i enjoyed her voice.
Pretty much all of it!
Living with low self-esteem is a horrendous thing (i should know, i have done it on and off for ten years) but help IS out there. This is a great to-the-point book. No BS, no endless media nonsense, just simple and easy to follow steps and general advice. I like that it tackled real life situations, wasn't just a load of unrealistic stuff. Very good, i am happy with my purchase and have already recommended this to two people.
I have had this about a month now and can say i started to feel a little better within hours. Its a gradual process and whilst i still have my off days, i really am feeling a bit better every single day - enough that even my family and friends have commented on the changes i have made. I owe this book a lot.
"Valuable Teaching and Self Reference Tool"
Very helpful! It gives really good resources to help the listener struggling with low self-esteem. Well explained practical strategies you can implement yourself or teach others. it easy to understand where lowered self esteem comes from and how to Recover from Low Self-Esteem. It's worth the price if you want to use with clients and makes a great self-help. I only wish I'd found it sooner!
"Very helpful book, thank you."
It actually helped me. Really. It obviously takes work from myself too but the book is the first thing to REALLY help me.
It was engaging without annoying which is perfect for a narrator.
That I can get better - and I *AM* getting better.
I have read a lot of books about self-esteem, always searching for something to help me feel better - this is the ONLY one that has been of any use. Do not expect an overnight cure if you are not prepared to do the work, but really, this book will help you if you actually do really want to get better. It had some very original ideas I had not heard and was written in a very interesting way. I will be recommending this to a lot of people and felt the need to leave this review to say thanks.
"This is so good for me. thanks for this."
Having an audio or print version is totally a personal choice. I went with the audio version and it is simply amazing. Story is narrated very well and the sound is clear and crisp.
I have read some books before although they were good but this book outstanding. It have uniqueness of story and explaining things and encouraging us for good things. According to my views its the best book and everybody should go for it.
I was having real hard time with my career.
I am a IT freelancer and working from last two years. I spend most of my time on my pc and don't hang around much.
Everything was going well, I was spending time working and earning. But 6-7 months ago I started loosing work and clients. I was calm as thought of it as a temporary phase but it came out as a long one. With passing times I was losing hope and 3 months ago I lost all of my work and got nothing to do. I was so scared and worried. I was full of negative thoughts. I had to earn to live. I lost all my self esteem that I started working at a restaurent at very low(half) as compared to other doing same job. Due to my tight conditions some people took advantage to that and made fun of me and made me work more then I deserved. I was so worried I kept listening to them without saying anything. My friend suggested me to read such encouraging books. I read two books before this. they were just ok and could not affect me. Then i got this audio book. This book told me several unique ways and ideas to live a positive life. I started applying those ideas into my life and slowly start getting results. By following the instructions and ways I turned my self from a negatively filled individual to a positive and forward looking guy. Now again I am a happy guy and with more positivity and efforts I am getting my work pace back.
Thanks to Dr. Jennifer Alison for the ultimate content and Heather Tuya for narrating it so well.
"A LIFE CHANGING TIPS"
I am 23 working and schooling.
I have a big problem and that has to do with self esteem..
I couldn't muster up courage to flow with my mate, I couldn't even talk to girls or answer questions confidently in class.
my dentition wasn't and still isn't perfect and it affected me a lot.
But then towards the end of school I started reading some books about building ones self esteem and this Fast proven treatment happens to be the best so far,
because I feel it was directly talking about me,
from then I learn to change my mind set, I started growing confidence within.
now I don't even remember how it feels to have LSE.
This book is excellent for anyone looking to improve their self-esteem.
Easy step by steps to follow. Anyone that reads it will get something out of it.
"Great job! I learnt a lot from this"
Improve Yourself Everyday
It was very down-to-earth narration. Simple language, very clear and easy to understand. It also deals with life issues that everyone can relate to. There were some signs of self-esteem issues that even confident people like me miss and attribute to something else. I now take note of these signs better after I read the book.
Setting realistic goals and not keeping up with the person next door. Trying not to focus on things I have no control over and accepting the results regardless as far as I know I did the best I could.
It was a surprisingly good read for people who do not believe they have any self-esteem. Once you read the first few chapters and go through the exercises, you would see that there are a lot of areas of your life you can improve. Trying too hard to please people can be interpreted as being a hard worker whereas it could mask a deep-rooted insufficiency and need to be loved. The book went through the chapter, steadily providing cause and effect as well as solutions.
when they fail to close a client, you’d think it was their fault whereas the person might just not be ready for a change of vendor at that time. I think this book would come handy during our team building activities. There are many self-development exercises to pick from that will make a difference in their lives.
"Be a better, more confident YOU!"
It is a life guide that even people that do not feel like they have self-esteem issues would find helpful. It cuts across all aspects of the personal life and how to improve one’s self. Also the exercises in the book and the tips for self-development are very practical.
Love Yourself More
I wasn’t sure how I wanted to write this review. It has been a while since a book has had me doing so much self-audit. After going through the first few chapters, I had to accept that there were worrying signs of self-esteem issues in my life that I may have neglected to confront. Not anymore. The hardest part of the last 6 hours (yes, I read it in two long stretches) was coming to terms with the need for me to love myself more and promising myself to do something about it before it became a chasm in my life. I would summarise the book in points based on the way I related to the author- Self-esteem issues could be masked by a general feeling of inadequacy, an inability to accept one’s failings and mistakes and a fear of intimacy or developing close relationships- Difficulty socializing or participating in group or community tasks may also indicate self-esteem and confidence problems as well as a lack of (or inadequate) self-belief. I made a mental note to visit the community centre more often and as much as possible, take a book or some snacks to the park close to my house and chat with neighbours more. I’ve known most of them all my life and I can’t understand why I can’t view them as friends.- It’s sometimes easier to accept criticism as truth than praise as being earned. I noticed that I may have been accepting criticism too readily without having a meaningful conversation with the critic about the merits of my decisions. Going forward, I will take some time to enjoy my own achievements and even reward myself. My last vacation allowance is gathering cents in a low interest savings account. I’m going to plan a vacation, it’s long overdue. - Rule your inner voice. Wrestle your demons and let your angels sing. I must learn to be on my own side and quiet the still voice that sometimes tells me that I cannot achieve the things I want to do. Self-love and self-care cannot be overestimated. I need to stop focusing on failure, learn from them and just move on.- An idea I have learnt from the book is to take time to write things daily that I want to do to make myself happier and more content with life as I know it. After all the most important things in life are hardly touched but felt according to Helen Keller.- Unrealistic goal setting sets one up for failure and negative self-vibes. Working too hard, attempting to lose too much weight in a short period, trying to stop bad habits without a proper plan, these are the type of things I need to avoid to make sure I don’t get sucked into bad moods and feelings of underachievement.- Comparing yourself to other people doesn’t do you any good. Keeping up with the Joneses just ends up in unnecessary headache. You're the product of your own experience and should be confident in the fact that the experiences make you who you are, comparison is irrelevant and pointless. Difference makes us who we are. Two of me is waaaay too much - Focusing on things you cannot change also will not let you love yourself. Love your body shape, embrace your mistakes as part of your personal development process, try to feed on positive vibes from the good things in your life- In conclusion, when you’re in a relationship, you should feed it with mutual construct, compromise and understanding that no one is perfect, not your or your partner. Believe that you’re good enough to give and receive love. Know yourself, be yourself and love yourself. Nobody can love you more than yourself. Surround yourself with family and people that you can share things with and trust with your concerns and fears.
""AN ANTIDOTE FOR A NEGATIVE MINDSET""
yes i would, because it has been very helpful in the area of self confidence, mind control and Goal setting. it exposed a lot of truth and facts i always ignored and took for granted. it made me realise that i am not paying much attention to my mind and Body, the book exposed solutions to low self-esteem, after analysing its causes.
it is also very practical and well organised.
This audio book is an excellent guide to building a high self-esteem. My mind will surely need more of it until it is totally absorbed.
I will compare this book with JOHN MASON'S BOOK "IMITATION IS LIMITATION" because it was able to uncover and explain the fact that the way we think about ourselves affects our actions and expressions, we are being limited by the feeling that we are imperfect and it only leaves us feeling depressed.
Though this is the first of her performance i have listened to, she was very crisp in her pronunciations and articulations. i must say her performance is just perfect.
Building your confidence level
There are books that touch the mind, while others touch the soul. This book I must confess has touched my mind and soul. It is quite true that at one point in one's life, one unconsciously develops low self-esteem. I developed a low self-esteem as a result of what I experienced earlier in my life and it affected how I react to events and how I view people around me. I have come to realise that I am not the only one who is experiencing this.
DR. JENNIFER ALISON has done a great job, which by all indication as observed by myself is born out of deep research and insight, she has also shown that all we need to develop our self-esteem is within us, by just building up the right mindset and attitude. Special thanks to the author for this great piece. Anyone who is having any form of low self-esteem should get this book as an antidote. The author has a great sense of humour and she is very practical.
"A must read"
A book that actually helped me (and a friend)! Seems quite a miracle after spending a small fortune on other books. I can see why so many people talk about this book, i think it is because it gets to the point and gives stuff we can all actually do. I am bored of reading medical journals about this stuff. I just wanted a basic understanding of it and then get to the point and help me…which is what this book did. Great audiobook, recommended! 5/5
"Wow! What a difference!"
This book has completely changed the way I feel about myself. After a life full of difficulties and self loathing, I feel like I'm finally on a journey to a more positive, happy life. Jennifer Alison's approach is based on individuals and individual experience. Unlike other books of its kind, this book does not offer a bunch of unhelpful psycho-babble. Rather Ms Alison manages to speak directly to the reader - there were times I was thinking, "how does she know I do that?!" The exercises are very helpful even though they felt a little silly at the start. I feel like I can finally see myself with honest eyes now - not overly critical eyes. I can't recommend this enough!
"Great audio, listened to time and time again"
I have read and listened to a load of books about self-esteem but this is the only one that actually produced proper, and lasting, results for me. Excellent narration. I already had this book in print format and thought it was great, but for me it was only really with the audio version that it all really started to make sense.
A great book and one I have zero problems recommending time and time again.
A very helpful book the has changed everything for me.
Lets be honest here, this is a very very difficult subject to tackle. I have been dealing with Self-Esteem issues all my life. I have good times and bad times but never really feel stable. I have read a lot of books on tis subject. Some did help a bit, many didn’t. To be absolutely honest this is the first one where I didn’t feel like i was being patronised nor did I feel like i was listening to a medical journal. It was proper advice that actually worked!! Everything felt well researched and comes from people who have ACTUALLY suffered from self-esteem issues, not just what a doctor thinks it might feel like.
I have a long journey to go but i will be honest and say I have never felt so hopeful about the future. This book has given me the tools to get on with my life and rebuild my self-esteem in a more sustainable and lasting way and for that I am eternally grateful.
I recommend this book to anyone suffering from self-esteem issues as well as anxiety and depression. Thanks, 5/5.
"So incredibly helpful"
Can I have three phrases instead? ;)
1 - Simple to understand
2 - Easy to implements
3 - IT WORKS.
First one but really enjoyed the narration, was easy to listen to.
In all honesty, pretty much every single section something really hit me and made me think about my life in a totally different way.
Living with low self-esteem is horrific - I should know, I have been living like this for much of my adult life. Got this book a while ago on print and loved it but thought i would get it on audio too, so I could listen to it anywhere.
I have checked out a lot (and i meant a LOT) of books in this genre but this is by far my fave. Its my fave because its the only one that had any real and lasting impact. Really simple to understand, short and to the point and awesome value for money.
Excellent book, I hope it helps you like it helped me.
"Great confidence booster. Solid achievable advice!"
No crap, just good solid advice to help raise your self-esteem and deal with the issues that keep dragging some of us down. Learnt some new things in this book I had not thought of or read before.
Good narration, struck a very good balance between engaging and easy to listen to. I cannot say this book will work for everyone but i CAN say this book has definitely worked for me and my self-esteem seems to be rising on a daily basis improving my overall quality of life.
"Practical solid advice"
Recovering from low self-esteem is a difficult journey and there is no quick cure - this book does not claim to provide this. Instead it provides good practical solid advice and tips that are easy to implement on your own life. I have read and listened to a lot of books like this but this is my favorite so far. Narration was excellent too, it managed the fine art of being engaging without being annoying.
"Excellent book with truly useful exercises"
This audio is one of the best I've listened to in self esteem. Excellent thoughts and exercises to bring you to a new level of awareness and actually make changes that benefit you
Yes, i have listened to it twice.
The second half of the book is incredible.
I enjoyed the practical advice, of which there was plenty, teaching me how to deal with many difficult situations.
MANY parts, i felt i could relate to it so much.
Such an amazing book and one which is, three weeks in, having a monumental positive influence on my life.
"Finally - something that ACTUALLY helped me."
Why? Because for once, i got advice that actually worked.
Huh? Its not that sort of book.
First time, but i liked her voice, very easy to listen to and kept me interested.
Fantastic. Finally, after spending a fortune on other books, i have found something that is actually helping. it is a gradual process but i am definitely letting go of a lot of anxieties and starting to feel a new brightness and positive feeling in my life. Fantastic, i am eternally grateful to the author
"Very insightful, helpful book!"
This book has helped me so much. It takes a personal approach to self esteem and self beliefs. Rather than offering vague advice, Alison teaches you how to explore your individual experiences and discover how they've shaped who you are. After reading through it and following the exercises I feel like I understand myself so much better and I'm finally learning how to really love myself. I think this book could benefit just about anyone, regardless of what type of life they've lived. What an incredible journey of self discovery and improvement!
"Much better than i expected it to be!"
Got recommended this by a professional and i was a little dubious at first but i got a lot more from this book than i first expected. I would say at least 70% of it was directly applicable to me which was good. Narrator was good, clear and easy to understand
