I am happy that Assaraf is living the life of his dreams, one he envisioned, spent time germinating and incubating with deep seeded emotion, in his brain, daily. Now that I know how it is done, so NOW will I. I have used many of the techniques in this book, some of which are not new just presented in another light. One thing I particularly like about John Assaraf is that he demonstrates the benefits of having a degree from the 'university of life'. Far too many of us place too much importance on ...more

I don't know if I want to have it all. I would settle with just having enough.

This book is a must read, it just shows you no matter how hard you are having it right now success is still possible for you and you will actually find out that the very same tough life you are having is the very same life providing you with the necessary training that you will later use to have it all.

I actually had to go through parts of this book again to re-enforce the principles I learned. definitely a must read.

Lots of books with the same idea. If you want good things in life put your trust in God, be positive, really positive and ask Him in abundance. Expect beautiful things.

The Main Message That I Received From The Book...
We all have INFINITE POTENTIAL, and it's up to us to create the life that we want. So, if you're going to create a life for yourself... why not have it all!

John offers many valuable exercises in the book for indentifying & creating the change you desire.

Great ideas on how to find and get your dreams going towards being realities. Learned some great things in this book. Things that made me say: "Wow--that's cool!" Funny part of learning these things, is that they were always right there in front of my but I never saw them in that perspective before.

Super positive and motivational with some pretty good ideas. Really short too which makes it an easy pick up.

Good motivational book. A little "new-agey" at times, but still some solid principles.
