J'ai beaucoup aimé ce livre qui donne des conseils pertinents tirés de la vie de l'auteur.
Il n'est pas trivial comme on peut le penser en lisant seulement le titre.
Il est aussi possible de télécharger gratuitement (en s'inscrivant à la newsletter) les Choose yourself stories (ou .99 sur amazon).
Il raconte sa vie avec ses échecs et ses succès de manière très intéressante.

At first i dont really know why i bought this. May be an appealling tittle.
But basically this is just a copycat of the secret and all this new age Bulls*** based on supposed author's experiences.
Conclusion, i say NO to this book, and one of the best advice you should follow is to avoid spending any buck in it !

Blind To Their Own Counsel 2 août 2014
Par Kevin L. Nenstiel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire client Vine pour produit gratuit ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Around fifteen years ago, I had a pastor who formerly suffered from sexual compulsion. I say "suffered," because his sermon illustrations frequently drew object lessons from his past--very, very long illustrations, lavish in detail and dripping with heartfelt emotion. He was the JK Rowling of recovering Christian sex addicts. One started to suspect he didn't so much regret his pre-conversion dependencies, as miss them.

I recalled that pastor, reading this book. The title and back-cover synopsis implied I'd get insights into setting productive boundaries, rejecting others' opportunistic impositions on my finite strength, and screening toxic relationships and commitments, hopefully without alienating friends or insulting strangers. Instead, I mostly got a painful litany of the Altuchers' past struggles. These long confessions cross the line between relevant anecdote and just wallowing in it.

The Altuchers built their current stable marriage, achieved late in life, on the ruins of significant prior setbacks. James, a serial entrepreneur, got unbelievably rich unbelievably young, and his profligate lifestyle alienated everyone he loved, including his first wife and children. Claudia, a yoga instructor, sought romance for the wrong reasons, defining herself externally, believing herself personally unworthy unless somebody loved her. They tell their stories at some length.

Their introduction, "Your NO Bill Of Rights," seemed promising. In eleven simple precepts, followed with one- or two-paragraph explanations, the Altuchers set a tone of declarative therapeutic redemption. It's difficult to dispute tenets like "You have the right to defend your life," "You have the right to take your time," or "You have the right to silence." Based solely on this introduction, I wholeheartedly agree with the Altuchers' underlying philosophy.

But turning to Chapter One, I got a sinking feeling. James describes a despondent moment when he considered suicide. His young daughter intruded, though, suffering bad dreams; James got her to sleep by encouraging her to count, not sheep, but things she's grateful for. Then, in the silence and darkness, he followed his own advice, realized life's intrinsic worth, and survived. His takeaway lesson? "I said no to killing myself."

Gulp.

Okay, I'm a Liberal Arts guy, not a psychotherapist. But saying no to suicide sounds like "Don't Think Of an Elephant," because you can't reject something negative without mentally foregrounding it. Saying no to suicide reinforces suicide. Why not say yes to your daughter? Why not say yes to your family, friends, and potential for future redemption? Instead of embracing the struggle, James rejected defeat. That seems counter-productive.

Similarly, Claudia spends a lengthy chapter detailing her romantic struggles before meeting James. She fell in love recklessly and often, seeking somebody to validate her existence, even if he kicked her in the heart. Only after several such relationships ended badly did she recognize herself as a serial love addict and seek counseling. Serious self-assessment, peer support, and relearning how to love herself opened Claudia to real love in James.

So, one month into the relationship, Claudia undertook "a ceremony to express gratitude" with James. One month! She's making this commitment of healing thirty days in, after admitting she let one suitor string her along for two years! Recognition of legitimate healing takes longer than one month. I tried to keep reading past this point, but everything tasted of ash, because I realized, these authors are deaf to their own counsel.

Books like this, grounded on the authors' personal life lessons, always lead reviewers into a minefield. If I criticize the book, am I pooh-poohing their lives? I'd like to think not; rather, I'm criticizing the Altuchers' ability to self-scrutinize. They lack distance from the life lessons they describe, which blinds them to certain implications. I don't doubt their sincere intentions, but they aren't exactly taking the long view of themselves.

The Altuchers support their lessons with a broad, inclusive spirituality, a sort of Judeo-Christian, New Thought-ish pantheism. The universe, they say, wants to support, nurture, and defend you. Nearly seventy years ago, George Orwell complained that post-Victorian Christians did well instilling fear of Hell and damnation in proselytes, but turned vague and abstract on topics of salvation and Heaven. The Altuchers find themselves in much the same position.

There's a book called Boundaries, by Henry Cloud and John Townsend, that accomplishes what this book's promotional copy promises. Though explicitly Christian, that book is grounded on solid psychology and science. It describes both healthy balance, and the process of achieving it. Though this book isn't bad, it suffers limitations from the authors' own situations. They probably should've written a memoir.

Talk less...Sit in Silence! 17 juillet 2014
Par JoeC - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
James once told me during his Twitter Q&A to sit in silence. Oooookay. I didn't do it.

Claudia tweeted something about sitting in silence and I asked her about. She replied back, "Try it. You'll see." Oooookay. I didn't do it.

Later on, I crossed paths with Michael Ellsberg and he had similar advice to sit in silence. He even showed me his technique. I tried it, but I got antsy and dropped it.

I read this book and the part about sitting in silence really jumped out at me. I will do it this time!

An interesting formula mentioned was: value of words = demand for those words divided by supply of the words. My report cards as a kid always said I needed to participate in class more. So I carried the belief that I had to talk more whether it was when meeting people or in meetings for work. But James gave a great example of how he said less during meetings and his words became more valuable and he was offered a CEO job, which he turned down.

All the sections and exercises in this book are great. These were the parts that spoke to me. The parts that I needed to hear.

Pick up this book and you'll hear what you need to hear as well.

I thought it'd be weird or fluffy. Nope! One of the best this year. 15 juillet 2014
Par Ryan J. Dejonghe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
Boy, was I mistaken! I started THE POWER OF NO expecting ESEENTIALISM-lite. You know, nice message, but without the collective power of heavy corporate sponsorship. When I started reading it, I thought it was weird..a bit odd. It didn't jive with everything else I've been reading. And then I thought of that quote by Haruki Murakami, "If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking."

The more I read this, the more I loved it. This may be one of the best books I've read this year (I've read over 120 so far). Leading up to this review, I've been quoting some of my favorite lines on Twitter. It's a shame about the limited space, otherwise I'd be quoting huge chunks out of the book. Here are some quotes I've shared:

"The brain is scared of reinvention because it might not be safe."
"Don't waste your free thoughts on the other slaves with their Rolex shackles."
"If we have crappy people around, we have a crappy life."

These quotes out of context may sound odd; you may get more meaning out of the authors' slideshow on their site.

One of the more profound quotes that touched me personally came through a story about CATCH-22 author Joseph Heller, who was at a New York gathering of rich hedge-fund managers (even more poignant for me after reading THE BUY SIDE and RICH KIDS OF ISTAGRAM). Someone told Heller to look around and see the people that would make more money doing what they do versus Heller. In response, Heller said he has something they do not. When asked, his answer was, "I have enough."

Another powerful moment came from Claudia sharing her meditative experiences throughout the world; one such was an event with Thich Nhat Hanh, where a sign displayed, "no mud, no lotus". Sometimes the biggest hurt will produce the most beautiful results.

As alluded to before, this is more than other books that dive into "doing less to achieve more". As the authors say, "It's one thing to say no. It's another thing to have the Power of No." A lot of this is touchy-feely without any references or footnotes; much of it is about the authors' personal lives, including dating, loss of self, and loss of loved ones. It threw me off. The authors would theorize something like, "Okay, maybe eat some vegetables. Or, better yet, drink your vegetables." Or, "Never watch the news, on TV or on the Internet." Some of it is a bit off from what we read in the other popular books, but again I reference that Murakami quote. If you stick it out, you'll find inspiration which you've not been exposed to before.

One of the key things mentioned throughout this book is to reinvent yourself every day. Like the co-founder of Twitter Biz Stone mentioned in his book THINGS A LITTLE BIRD TOLD ME, "Creativity is a renewable resource. Challenge yourself every day. Be as creative as you like, as often as you want, because you can never run out. Experience and curiosity drive us to make unexpected, offbeat connections. It is these nonlinear steps that often lead to the greatest work."

The authors really hit their stride at the end of the book with a mock Q&A section. They asked, "What if I can't sit in silence for an hour a day?" They answered, "Sit for two hours a day." They asked, "I can't read 500 books. What one book should I read for inspiration?" They answered, "Give up." They asked, "What if I'm going to jail?" They answered, "Perfect...you'll read a lot of books in jail."

Thanks to Hay House for providing this book electronically for me to review. I'm adding it to my Goodreads's favorite list.

Profoundly-Profound! 20 juillet 2014
Par Tom Matt host of "Boomers Rock" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Page 195- James-"You are reading this book because the word 'no' rang true to you."

Actually no (seriously), I read this book because a great friend, (author Mickey Hadick) and huge fan of James and Claudia's work recommended I read a forwarded email he received from James titled-"How To Persuade Anyone Of Anything In Ten Seconds".

From there I took it upon myself to check this guy out because frankly I had not ever heard of James and Claudia Altucher.

Glad I did!

Page 27- "When you have a tiny, tiny piece of crap in your soup, it doesn't matter how much more water you pour in and how many more spices you put on top. There's crap in your soup."

Is it correct to say 'profoundly-profound'?

You catch my drift here, and it really does get better and better, so my recommendation is read the book and then stir the soup, because, well you catch that drift as well!

Peace

Warren Buffett once said... 16 juillet 2014

"The difference between successful people and really successful people is that really successful people say no to almost everything."

Understanding the power of no is more powerful than ever. In a sea of opportunity, being able to know what you want, and saying no to everything else is critical. This short book is worth it's weight in gold.
