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.

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

[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!

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...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.

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.

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...more

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

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...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

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.

Recommended to Chad by: 50 Self-Help Classics
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...more

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...more

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

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

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

I actually heard one of those audio books on Anthony Robbins - Awaken the Giant Within: How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical, and Financial. The book was published in 1991 and motivational guru, Robbins, gave sold out seminars and even coached presidents, pop stars bla bla. It was a very fast listen that was well within 2 hrs. Personally, Robbins spoke too fast, but it was nevertheless very entertaining. It was very timely for the New Year, where ideas are big and am...more

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...more

I will begin by saying this: I do not agree with everything on this book. I do not believe that Neuro-Lingusitic Programing answers every problem of the human psyche, nor do I think that personal change is instantaneous. Rather, I believe that it is a product of constancy, effort and time.

But like all self-help, this book should not be regarded as an absolute truth but as a challenge to our current way of looking at things. And in that regard, the book is admirable. Within its wide number of cha...more

Shelves: on-my-nightstand
Often referred to by me as "The Book", I can't believe I've never written a review of it before. This book has changed and improved my life in a way that no other ever has. I casually refer to Anthony Robbins as "Uncle Tony" because his words feel like sage advice from a favorite uncle. It is constantly within easy reach, either on my desk where I spend most of my time, or on my nightstand by the bed. It it well-worn, highlighted and color-coded so that I can find key concepts at a glance any ti...more

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.

like The Rules, The Values, The Verba...more

Awaken the Giant Within by Anthony Robbins is a "must-read" book. Anthony Robbins is a motivational speaker, positive mental attitude guru, and mentor to some of the most powerful people of our time. He has produced seminars, videotapes, audiotapes, etc. that coach you through the steps to take control of your mental, emotional, physical, and financial destiny.

Don't imagine that this is just an easy read-it and be successful book. It is about changing the way that you think about yourself, succe...more

Однако вашим лозунгом должно быть создание равновесия. Стремитесь к равновесию, а не к совершенству. Большинство людей живут в мире черно-белых тонов; такие люди считают, что либо они жертвы, не имеющие собственной жизни, либо реалисты — люди, ориентированные на достижения, которым наплевать на окружающих. Не поддавайтесь подобному заблуждению. Жизнь — это равновесие между возможностями давать и брать, между заботой о себе и заботой о других.

Не пытайтесь быть совершенством; просто будьте достойн...more

“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.” 3 likes
“belief “There’s always a way to turn things around if I’m committed.” When I read my list, I thought, “This is a belief that needs to be strengthened and turned into a conviction.” I’m so glad I did because only about a year later that conviction was a life preserver that pulled me through one of the toughest times, a time when everything around me seemed to be sinking. Not only did it buoy my spirit, but it also helped me deal with one of the most difficult personal and business challenges I had yet faced. This one belief, this sense of certainty, enabled me to find ways to turn things around when everybody around me said it couldn’t be done. I not only turned things around, I turned my biggest challenges into my biggest opportunities—and so can you! Review this list and strengthen your emotional” 0 likes
