Publisher's Summary

Based on his landmark research and teachings, Dr. John Demartini has discovered the key to fulfillment in all aspects of life. What is the most important step you can take to achieve the life you've always dreamed of? You might think the answer is something like start saving money, get a better job, find my soul mate, or improve my marriage. Solutions like these might offer temporary satisfaction, but none of them can provide true, lasting fulfillment or help you achieve your unique purpose in life.

The Values Factor shows you how to create a life in which every minute can be inspiring and fulfilling. The first step is to identify what you find most meaningful - the values in life that are most important to you. Once you understand your own unique values and align your life accordingly, you can achieve fulfillment in every aspect of your life: deepening your loving relationships, creating an inspiring career, establishing financial freedom, and tapping into a rich spiritual life.

Dr. Demartini's provocative 13-part questionnaire will reveal to you what you value most. The answers may surprise you! Then, each chapter of this audiobook explains how to align every aspect of your life with your true values, so that you can finally achieve the success that you were capable of all along.

A true game changer

This audio book was fantastic & it's exactly as if your attending one of dr John Demartinis events, which I have. It gives detailed instructions on how to analyse why you do what you do & transform anything you have been unhappy with
Since reading this book I decided it was time to transition off serious rheumatoid arthritis meds because I cleared some massive blocks & imbalances. 2 months drug free 2 months pain free. So Much Gratitude for this book & the years of research John does so we can all live our best life

Great Book - Woeful Narration

I have always been a fan of Dr Demartini's groundbreaking work. But I just can't listen to this book. The narrator is terrible. 0/10 for that performance. Give me a microphone! I know the work, I have a pretty ordinary speaking voice, but I swear I could do it more justice if through nothing other than sheer enthusiasm for the subject matter. The narrater very obviously has never attended one of Dr Demartini's courses and it comes through in every word.

Overlong and a bit contrived.

Really struggled to get through this. I really wanted to like it but I found it to be way too long, even listening at 1.25x speed. There are some great ideas in here but the points are so heavily laboured that it becomes incredibly tedious. I suspect the salient points could have been made in about one third of the time. There's also the issue of the perfectly constructed anecdotes which are used to illustrate each point. Each one so contrived that it became really grating and distracted from the point that was being made. If you're really keen on taking this I would suggest getting the actual book, at least that way you could skim over all the padding.

Hmm

Nothing particularly earth shattering here. Same ol, same ol , just from the doctor's point of view. I admit that I didn't quite make to half way before abandoning this book. It's not bad, but not very far from every other book of the same genre. Made for the self help market.

Only half the book is interesting

I liked the first half of the book only, the other half was just a repeat of the first half. The narrator was the most boring...it seemed he was bored reading, very flat voice. I wouldn't recommend this book. Plus when he started mentioning Trump I lost faith and finally gave up.

Makes you really think about your values

The book makes you think about your true values. It made me think about life goals in a different matter. It helped me identifying where frustrations in my life are coming from and how to move forward.
However, the author uses lots of "to-do" and "complete this exercise" trying to help the reader identify those values. I don't think it is applicable to apply such exercises and equations into values.
Overall, the book is good with few points I disagree with. Definitely would recommend to anyone who is trying to better shape their life.

MUST READ for alignment in life <br />

Damn good book. Listened to it twice. Going back a third time. You will get a lot of clarity about who you are and what is important to you, and how to approach life with this knowledge.

think outside the box

this book will make you think way outside of the box and look back in and wonder...question some of the simple habits and addictions we have formed in our everyday life..definitely invite you consider making important changes in your life simply by identifying your highest values. this is my first audible book and was able to get through this book in my car on the way home and back everyday...good read...will definitely purchase the hard copy to have home as well.

Insightful Read - lots to learn!

Would you listen to The Values Factor again? Why?

Yes - there are so many things that you pick up on that it would be useful to listen to it fairly regularly to keep you on track with the context.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Values Factor?

I like how it is clear Dr Demartini travels around so much and has so many commitments to fulfil but because of his values he applies he seems to do these seamlessly.It makes you realise that you can really achieve so much more every day if you apply your thoughts correctly.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The business chapter on how to lead and inspire your work force. I want to achieve greatness in business so I want to be perceived well but to achieve well at the same time.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Be a better you...

Any additional comments?

Really enjoyable and in some areas, very simplistic but so effective

I’m only a few days through finishing this book and I can already see the life changing impact it will have on my life.
My name is Ben Taggart and I will become a success based on this book and the Compound Effect by Darren Hardy. Watch this space.

Like, WOW!

Utterly revelatory.

I've read lots of these sorts of books. This doesn't pump you up and give you plans and constructs. This just tells you how relationship and behaviour work. Quite brilliant.

Great book with plenty of action steps

This book was great, it explained and clearly broke down the steps needed to understand your highest values and how to overcome ‘problems’.

Whilst there are plenty of action steps and points to do through this book the only thing I would say to anyone reading this is, if you are an action taker and implement any of the suggestions of this book you will need a note pad and be ready to go back and keep referring. In an ideal world there would be some downloads somewhere almost like worksheets that could be applied.

Great book but not narrated by Dr John :(

Great book, but unfortunately it’s not narrated by Dr John De Martini.

The narrator chosen is monotone and dull - which is such a shame - because it’s a great book.
