Publisher's Summary

If you learn to let go,

your life will take off.

When you let go, you live intuitively. Everything flows, because you are no longer attached to things being a certain way, to being a certain person or always being right. What a relief. The irony is that when you feel stuck in any area of your life - career, relationships, purpose, health or money - letting go can seem very hard. You cling on for dear life just at the moment you need to take the leap.

In The Power of Letting Go, John Purkiss explains why we should let go and how we can do it, using proven techniques to make things happen.

The stages of letting go:

  • Be present and enjoy each moment
  • Let go of the thoughts that keep you stuck
  • Let go of the pain that runs your life
  • Surrender and tune in to something far more intelligent than your brain

Provided some key tips but cant apply all

It did provide some key grounding techniques to get you to focus on the now but some things such a constant just let go doesnt help, it helps a bit at the start but it seems like you have to just disregard how you feel at times

Powerful and transformative.

This is not one of those inspiring books that once you put it down you don't take any action. As you listen you can begin implementing the strategies and see positive change, which makes you want to listen more.

Great Guide

I thought this made a great guide but it won't be my only tool I'll use to help let things go. I thought the personal stories were a nice touch but overall a little too much for me. I did feel I could relate to most of what was being said. I'd really like to give the rating a 3.5. I have listened to the audible a few times now and will most likely listen to it again.

Teaches you to meditate in different scenarios but full of pseudoscience and anecdotal evidence

I took the book with a grain of salt, that grain being how to practice meditation and mindfulness throughout your day. However, the book relies heavily on anecdotal evidence, pseudoscience, and unsubstantiated claims, such as when the author is magically able to detect illnesses in other people by just looking at them. There is also an implicit claim that if others do harm unto you, it’s not their or anyone’s fault, but thinking that makes it so—clearly a view of someone who has lived a privileged life.

It’s gives some decent strategies, but I was looking for something a little more in depth than the authors personal battles.

Highly Recommended Book for Life

This is an outstanding book making the subject of transformation and ‘letting go’ accessible for everyone. Inner work really is the ticket to creating huge change in your life and this book contains powerful techniques to help you to do that. I enjoyed the narrators voice too, he speaks easily and fluidly.

A great test of whether I really enjoyed an audible book is firstly whether I actually finish it (many half read books in my library). Secondly, if I love it I will then buy the hard copy to re-read and refer back to. I’m just off to do that now.

Read it and do the work 🙏🏻

Excellent audio book with great information

I found this audio book excellent on all levels.
It’s easy to follow, with excellent well laid out information.
The narrator was also very good and easy to listen too, I usually prefer books narrated by the author but in this instance it was read perfectly with great inference and rhythm he was reading from the heart so sounded perfect.
I found the text ideal for me not too in-depth or overly complicated although still very well explained.
Thank you
