Mellow Phil?

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. It's not so much about learning something new, as reminding you to follow your inner truth (you know, the one we all tend to run and hide from) Dr Phil in this audio book comes across a lot mellower than the rampant Dr Phil on TV.

A suitable motivational tool for those that have lost their path to fulfilling their goals, or simply those who need to begin with momentum.

Step One If You're Serious About Progress

I bought this book in 1999 when I had destroyed my life by not thinking things through before I did them. Enthusiasm and talent are unfortunately not enough to make it in our world and my naivete allowed sharks and charlatans to swindle me out of my hard earned cash and progress. Also I had an enormous emotional "engine" that needed feeding minute by minute.
This book changed that forever.
Dr Phil may have a lot of gumph said about him but I can 100% vouch for the sense, intelligence, value and practicality of what the man has to say. If you read this book; and do what he asks you to do seriously.... YOU WILL SUCCEED. It really IS that simple. This program is a first step... and will get you through the first 6 months as you divest yourself of crappy beliefs and airy fairy ideas sold to you by nutcases. After that (If you follow his life laws) you will amaze yourself and everyone you know. Deepak's 7 Spiritual Laws are unfortunately impractical... as are Stephen Covey's 7 habits. They sound good.... but you don't get measurable results. THIS GUY GIVES YOU RESULTS.

If you are serious about success, if you are fed up of waiting for the "universe" to provide you with money "in ever increasing amounts..." buy this book. The best ?10 I ever spent.

P.S I went from a bus pass to new Ferrari within 2 years.

Funny practical realistic and relevant.

I was first introduced to this book in the late 90's by my sister. Since then I have owned and given away several copies. Now I have made it a permanent feature of my Audible book library. I use the materials for my self as a way of checking my progress and noticing any poor life habits which I may be developing. In addition I use the book as a resource in my practice as a therapist. It's solid well founded and usable by anyone who is ready to make change

Disappointed

Thought it would be better and more specific and give more details that make theory easily convert to practice.
