Positive encouragement book talking about the self-liberation of the psychological and social restrictions imposed on us
Full of a wonderful affecting sincere, stories
كتاب ايجابي تشجيعي بيدور فى فلك تحرير الذات من القيود النفسية و الاجتماعيه اللى فرضتها ظروف المجتمع و مفاهيمه علينا ، كتاب هايل طبعا ملئ بقصص صادقه و مؤثره
" ليس الموت هو الخسارة أو المأساة الأكثر عمقا في الحياة ، فما يموت داخل أنفسنا أثناء حياتنا هو خسارة أعظم بكثير " هي أجملُ عبارةٍ قرأتها في هذا الكتاب .
يمكنني اختزال الكتاب بعبارة ابن القيم التي تؤثر فيَّ كثيراً " لو أن أحدكم همَّ بإزالة جبلٍ وهو واثقٌ بالله لأزاله "
الكتاب يسلط الضوء على كذباتنا على أنفسنا ، تلك الكذبات التي ترهق أرواحنا وتثبط عزيمتنا وتقتل طموحنا ، الكذبات التي تُمِيت قدراتنا وقوانا العظيمة ، نوهم أنفسنا أننا ضعاف ونحبس أرواحنا في صناديق مغلقة ونقيد عقولنا بكذبات تقف حائلاً أم

A self-help book with a lot of great insights. Author Steve Chandler's uses an almost conversational writing style that helps you take a hard look at some of the things that may be holding you back from achieving your dreams. Though not a 'how-to,' his advice is practical and easy to implement. I liked how he slowly helps you peel back the layers of your fears/obstacles and offers advice on getting back on track in the game of life. Also bought copies for two younger readers (17 and 22) and they ...more
I liked most of the book, but I did not agree with "what does not kill you makes you stronger" aspect. For what he was saying I agree, but over all I view that phrase very differently.
amazing book! i loved it.
i plan to read it at the beginning of each year! This book is an easy read but very on point and great for anyone looking for a new view on life. And even if you are not, anyone can get something from this book. a real Gem!
Nothing particularly new or revolutionary in this short and concise treatise, but good motivational reminders. Chandler’s bottom line is that I must be brutally honest with myself. Only with this honesty can I determine if I have the commitment to follow through with my goals and dreams. There are two other things he said that are worth remembering: “If we have a life of our own, then we don’t worry about other people meeting our expectations,” and “I’m not saying this to be right; I’m saying it ...more
There isn't anything insightful about the 17 lies we tell ourselves, like "that isn't me" or "I'm too old." There were a few "lies" that I had not considered as being negative statements; they seemed more like facts. But after listening the author's reasoning, I began to wonder if they're really true obstacles or excuses that I tell myself. It would be useful to listen to this audio book whenever we feel we've hit some roadblocks.

Steve Chandler is one of my favorite self-help authors. He makes it very easy to grasp hard concepts. I've been able to use all of the content in this book. It's in plain English, very accessible, and no psycho-babble.

Personally, I have more than 17 ... but I'm certainly guilty of these. Great read. This stuff is like coffee in the mornin' ... gotta have some!
