توني روبنز ، ليس ممن يبيعون الوهم ، بل هو الشخص الذي يأخذ يتفكيرك خطوة خطوة ، يخطئ ويصيب ، ويتلعثم بصوت مرتفع بكل شفافية ، هذا الكتاب ككل كتب توني روبنز ومؤلفاته ، تحاول الإجابة عن السؤال ( لماذا ) أكثر من السؤال ( كيف )

يركز هذا الكتاب على مبدأ اللذة والألم ، وكيف أن قيم اللذة والألم هي المحرك الحاسم لكي يفعل الإنسان ما يريد فعله ، ويتحدث عن فكرة مفادها أن للإنسان حرية و قدرة على أن يشعر بما يشاء وقت ما يشاء بحسب القيم الموجودة داخله
يستطرد الكتاب في كل اتجاه

I just got dischraged from the Army of Korea and I suffered a momentary depression, struggling to adapt myself to the new world.

Everything I wish to happen didn't come as planned, so I got really upset about everything.
Yes, I almost lost it.
I didn't know why, but now I do know it was my belief and mind that led me to negatives.

The most impressive quote of all in the book is this

It takes nothing to feel good about yourself. You can feel good about yourself with very teeny-tiny daily things.

[أنتوني روبنز: أيقظ قواك الخفية، ورقي، الطبعة الثامنة 2004، تنمية ذاتية، 559 صفحة]

نعم، هذا الكتاب ليس من نوعية الكتب التي تُقرأ مرة واحدة ثم تُهمل وتُوضع بعيداً، إنه بالفعل موسوعة متكاملة عن النمو والتحسين المستمر في كل مناحي الحياة. قرأت هذا الكتاب حوالي أربع مرات ومراجعتي هذه تأتي بعد قرائتي له للمرة الخامسة ، وفي كل مرة اكتشف في محتواه شيء جديدا مثيراً غاب عني ولم انتبه له!
توني روبنز هو خبير متمرس في مجال التدريب المحترف والتطوير الذاتي أو ما يعرف بعلم النجاح والتفوق البشري وهو أيظاً من رواد

هذه السلسلة من الكتب المترجمة الى العربية والتي تباع بالملايين في الدول المتقدمة لا تناسب ابدا واقع بلادنا العربية في النهج الروتيني لمؤسساتها وشركاتها سواء الحكومية منها او الخاصة وقد يقع عليك تطبيق ما في هذه الكتب بوبال كبير عليك ولا انصح ابدا باقنتاءها عموما الكتاب ممل وساذج .وقعت في فخ شرائه وندمت.فهذا الهراء الامريكي ما هو الا هرج سخيف يقدم النصائح المعلبة بسطحية

It is true you only get out of life what you put in.

I refer to your thoughts and your mindset.

We are a product of how we use our mind. Anthony Robbins is teaching that in this book.

If you want a get rich book I would not consider buying or reading this book. This book will make you rich but rich in mind, body, spirit and material wealth will follow if that is your desire.

Anthony does not proclaim to may you materially rich by using his techniques. What he is doing is showing you the power of you
this book should be required reading for every single person in the world. amazing. how am I just learning about Anthony Robbins. I have always been the most motivated, determined person I know in every area of my life, but lately I had begun to lose that. Robbbins' book helped to take me out of this dark part of my life and has motivated me again to become something great during my one shot at life.

This is a very long book, and should not be rushed through reading. You really need to read a lit
Anthony Robbins is one of the most well known self-improvement and motivational speakers. Even though his first book 'Awaken the Giant Within' was published more than a decade ago, it still holds immense relevance in today's world. This is a book packed with plenty of strategies on how to take charge of your emotions, health, relationships and finances. It is a holistic book that offers timeless philosophies that can help you reach your true goals and discover your passion in life.

I read just about everything Anthony released but Awaken the Giant is my favorite. I first read this book in the early 90's and since then Tony Robbins has released more books and more audio systems but the principles are still the same. This book was my introduction to Neuro Linguistic Programming which proves effective if you practice it (I emphasize if). Tony speaks a lot about his own experiences also and some of the struggles he faced growing up which allows the reader to make comparisons t ...more
من أفضل الكتب التي قرأتها هذه السنه. ينبغي قراءته بعقليه متفتحه مستعده للتقبل لان الكاتب يعرض مبادىء اساسية وهامه في اسلوب الحياة. كذلك، هو ليس من الكتب التي تقرأ مرة واحدة ومن ثم تزين المكتبه! شعرت اني ارغب في العودة اليه بين فترة والآخرى. من يبحث عن طريقة سريعه للتغيير او كتاب للتسليه فهذا الكتاب ليس له. هناك الكثير من التمارين / التفكير مرتبط بقراءة الكتاب.
لدي تحفظ على اسلوب الترجمة كان من الممكن ان يتكب بطريقة افضل. بشكل عام كتاب رائع يدعو للتفكر.
بحثت عنه بعد ما قال أحمد الشقيرى أن هذا الكتاب أثر فيه وأفاده كثيراً

وأنا محتاجة جداً لكتاب تنمية بشرية يكون غير تقليدى :)

استغرق منى هذا الكتاب قرابة 8 شهور
تجربتى مع الكتاب ده :
كنت حاسة بالفشل دراسياً فى الكلية فقررت أبدأ السنة بالتزام واجتهاد شوية
نزلت الكتاب ده علشان أقرا منه شوية كل فترة يمكن يساعدنى على احداث تغيير

وطقت فى دماغى ان ماشى خلاص لازم أخلص الكتاب
بقيت أقرا شوية منه كل شوية قريبين واحيانا كل يوم

Quotes in the book
-The greatest leverage you can create for yourself is the pain that comes from inside, not outside. Knowing that you have failed to live up to your own standards for your life is the ultimate pain

-It states “the desire for gain must exceed the fear of failure” in order to accomplish something.

-Once we effect a change, we should reinforce it immediately. Then, we have to condition our nervous system to succeed not just once, but consistently

-The difference between acting badly

Recommends it for: Anyone looking for a greater level in their life. Or anyone who is hungry for more.
One of the best and most comprehensive personal development books out there. The central message is this: you have the power right now to control how you think, how you feel, and what you do. Everything you could ever want, tangible or not, is all within you. Tony Robbins has a wealth of experience which he essentially puts in its rawest form into this book. I found it a fantastic read and IF IMPLEMENTED, then a sincere aid to your life and whatever you want out of it. HIs techniques I've listed ...more

كتاب رائع لمعرفة كيف يحسن الواحد منا طريقة حياته وكيف يعيشها
وكيف نستطيع ان نغير من مشاعرنا اتجاه اي موقف او حالة معينة وذلك بطريقة ايجابية
على الرغم من انه يبدو للوهلة الاولى سهل التنفيذ الا انه يحتاج الى إرادة قوية وعزم وإصرار وممارسة وجدية
كما يخبرنا الكتاب ان لكل واحد من طاقة كامنة وإبداع في مجال معين ولكن علينا اكتشافه وعدم الاستهانة بما نستطيع فعله وتحقيقه حتى وان كان حلماً بعيد المنال!
اريد ان اطبق ولو جزء بسيط من الكتاب
للإستفادة حقاً من الكتاب احتاج الى الإطلاع عليه مرة بعد مرة

I really don't feel good about self-help books and coaches.
I have my own religious opinions that the ultimate resolution you can make in your life is in your religion and specially ISLAM.

So anyway of trying to improve your life quality away from Islam, .......... well i kind of don't like it.

However you can look at this book in a way of holding useful tools and methods and making some distinctions in how you interpret your own emotions and other's behavior.

Recommends it for: those wanting to know why we do the things we do and how to change it.
There is so much amazing information in this book on how to literally take charge of your life and get you to figure out why you you do the things you do.

I would recommend to first read "Unlimited Power," so you don't get overwhelmed with the immense amount of information in it.

Bottom line, if you want to know why you do the things you do AND how to use it to get the things you want, you need to buy this book and apply it.

Offers a few gems in the midst of a lot of relatively redundant jargon the author made whilst developing his personal philosophy. In addition to the redundant jargon, the concepts themselves felt somewhat repetitive, so this book may be better used as a long term repository of uplifting/motivational stories and aphorisms.

Some anecdotes were jarringly clean in the public-relations-censorship type of way, to the extent that may turn off more cynical readers less tolerant of sifting through fluf

Anthony Robbins is one who needs no introduction as far as Personal Development goes. Reading Awaken the Giant within is akin to attending a spiritual retreat/workshop. This book is a whooping 500 and some pages. I purchased it about 2years ago but never quite got around to it. All along I kept saying to my friends that I know this book will change my life and indeed it has. I will never be the same again. This book is not to be read passively. Clear your schedule, grab a book mark, pencil, jott ...more

A motivational and practical guide to the power of decisions in reaching our goals. I liked the themes of taking responsibility and continuously improving. It discusses success not only in financial terms, but also mental, emotional, and physical (bodily). It's somewhat overly optimistic at times, but far less cheesy than I expected.

The "giant within" in the title is decision. Our decisions about "how we think, how we feel, and what we do"..."will determine the quality of our present and future
Anthony Robbins first book, "Awaken the Giant Within", seemed to me a completely holistic, detailed, and comprehensive guidebook on how to transform your life from one of dragging along, failing, or simply refusing to thrive, into one of empowerment, focus, direction, clear-headed-ness, and vitality. Not mere "positive thinking" by a long shot, Tony describes tools and techniques relevant to our thinking, our outlook, our physical and spiritual health, and our human relationships, intimate or ot ...more
Probably one of the most popular self-help books ever written. I found it inspiring and insightful, although not all that original. Most of it was just common sense and standard psychology, particularly behaviorism and cognitive-behavioral therapy. The gist is that we can change our lives by changing our beliefs and thoughts, and associating pain with bad habits and pleasure with more beneficial habits.

While it's always good when someone makes psychology more accessible to the layman, there's so
I believe that “Awaken the Giant Within” by Tony Robbins contains some helpful tips to life solutions and some fanciful solutions to life problems.

A few good things:

It states “the desire for gain must exceed the fear of failure” in order to accomplish something.

The book explains that what gives us pleasure we pursue and what give us pain we avoid. So the trick is to change the unpleasant situations into pleasurable ones. This is easier said than done, in my opinion.

However, a good tip given is t

it took me four years to awaken my giant and finish this book :'D, I can't deny that this book is like THE bible of self development, all you need is commitment and Antony Robbins and you're ready to change your life..! unfortunately I lack the first one, so this book didn't do me much help
.. but I would still recommend it to anyone who seeks an immediate change in their life.
كتاب يبيع الحلم بثمن في متناول اليد. يوقظ العملاق في داخلك أمد تقليب صفحاته. ما أن تغلق الكتاب حتى يغط العملاق في سبات عميق. ماعدا (دع القلق وابدأ الحياة) لم اقتنع بأن كتب تطوير الذات تقدم جديدا. نفس الهراء بمصطلحات جديدة. ومع كل يوم يطل علينا "مدرب عالمي" جديد، كان عامل نظافة ثم أصبح رائد فضاء وجاء يتفضل علينا بفائض حكمته. بالنسبة لي، كتاب واحد منها يكفي، حيث أنها تعج بالنصائح العامة التي لايمكن تطبيقها على الجميع وفي أي محيط وأي زمان. هي فقط تعمل على اقناعك بإمكانية النجاح. أعرف الكثير من الشب ...more
The book has some really great information that, when applied, can make some significant changes in a person's life. It includes variety of different topics. From communication skills to obtaining what you want & making a change.

Personally, I liked the first 40% of the book & found it very informative after that I got absolutely bored.

This book changed my life. Tony Robbins is an amazing man and a really great teacher. This book did a lot for me and I would strongly recommend it to anyone who is looking to better themselves. Word of warning though this book is single space and like size 8 font and quite thick, Tony is a deep writer and if your going to get anything out of this book your going to need to dig in take your time and fallow the exercises. What I'm saying here is that if your going to read this book right your goin ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone and anyone who wants to improve their life and make better decisions.
Anthony Robbins work is spectacular. He has motivated and inspired both the wealthy celebrities as well as the every day person. He has a way of putting our issues where they need to be. On the back burner. And puts what we can do to become better, and more, on the forefront.

I have turned to this book as a reference so many times since I first read it. Awaken the Giant within is for both those that are already well on their way to success, as well as those of us on our journey.

I highly recomme

What a book. I have been reading this book for about three weeks; the prolonged period was not as a result of it's difficulty or elusiveness - but of it's sheer value. I could not read it passively or read many pages at one time due to it's profound insight per page. I was active while reading this book, I took notes, I completed the exercises and I really thought about my life now and where I want it to be in the near future. Without a doubt, I would recommend this book to anyone, people of all ...more

As I progressed in reading this book, something within me started changing for good. It changed my attitude towards life. Not only me but also people around me started feeling my positivity. Now, my friends look up to me for some positive talk which would fill their life with happiness.

“Enjoy making decisions. You must know that in any moment a decision you make can change the course of your life forever: the very next person you stand behind in line or sit next to on an airplane, the very next phone call you make or receive, the very next movie you see or book you read or page you turn could be the one single thing that causes the floodgates to open, and all of the things that you’ve been waiting for to fall into place. If you really want your life to be passionate, you need to live with this attitude of expectancy.” 9 likes
