I just finished it and took the time to copy a lot of the exercises and different ideas out into another book so that they would solidify in my mind. I think that if you have the time to really concentrate on the exercises and incorporate them into your daily life then it will certainly change your life. Mine is definitely different from 7 days ago. I have a very different outlook on myself and my place in the world. I didn't think of myself as worthless before this, but I certainly feel like I ...more

الكتاب ده فعلا تجربة جميلة ، ولو طبقت التمارين اللي فيه دايما و حرصت علي انك تاخد بزمام الامور و تقرر فعليا انك تتغير
الكتاب ده بيوضح الفرق بين كتب التنمية البشرية المصري
اللي كلها كلام تحفيزي و مفيهاش اي "أداة"
اوصل بيها للقيم دي زي : السعادة ، الثراء ، الصحة و اعادة صياغة الامور بطريقة ايجابية
و كتب التنمية البشرية الاجنبي اللي هي فعلا بتديلك الأداة

I got this book out of the library and really enjoyed it, even though these books are usually laughable fluff you can't help but glance through.

But, yes, I think it really did change my life. I have several of the catch phrases mentioned in the book - such as: there is no such thing as failure only feedback - on my vision board! When in certain situations they pop into my head.

Also, a few of the visualisation exercise I found really helpful. There is one to combat worrying, and I have used it

2018’in ilk kitabını bitirmiş bulunmaktayım. Oldukça başarılı buldum. Hakkında yazı gelecek.

Do not take me wrong, I am usually rather skeptical about this sort of book and most authors who write this type of literature do not strike me with the sound honesty of Paul McKenna. His book is REALLY helpfull if you are trying to renew your life and energy and get into better routines and a more productive phase of your life.

This is brilliantly prepared to couch you into finding out your better, brither SELF and criatively developing your best route to HAPPINESS and FULFILLEMENT.

I loved t, yo

The tips and advice in this book are great! This book will definitely help but you need to have a positive attitude and the belief in yourself as well as in what McKenna writes.

I keep this book on my "active" bookshelf at home. It is one of a few I turn to whenever I start heading to my negative side. It's a must have for anyone that suffers from depression and/or anxiety.

This will give you an insight into my fleeting mind. It comes with a CD, and to be honest I had a bit of a freak-out whilst i was supposedly "meditating". If you have taken any LSD, Amp's, weed, mushy's.. don't listen to the CD. It didn't really change my life, just made me realise that i have taken way too many drugs and that my mind should remain confinded to "reality" and not altered, even if McKenna tells me it will improve my quality of life. I am only one action away from a mental ward ;0)

At first, this sounds like an interesting and educative book. But when I got further in the book, it felt rather irritating. So many obvious things stated here, not an enjoyable read. I give it two stars because of the quotes and sometimes good life lessons.

Great book, it did inspire me back when I read it as I was looking for a job and was unemployed so was very helpful in that respect. I need to read it again though.

THE new book by Paul McKenna, CHANGE YOUR LIFE IN 7 DAYS, is in my opinion, one of the best self development books this year. 

Paul McKenna is world leader in self development coaching and hypnotist, he has several books regarding self image and weight lost, also created several course and programs to facilitate with his teachings. You can find more at

The book is very easy read, and it comes with the meditation CD, and DVD, on the program where the author himself demons

I love Paul McKenna seriously I do .. I have all his books and read most of them , I even have his quit smoking book although I don't smoke .. yeah that's how much I love him .. this book was a summary of all his previous books put in a neat way in a form of seven days , the problem was I felt all the information I read was just a repetition from his previous books , nothing new in the exercises but the articles were so good and he is a really great man .. I do recommend this book to whoever did ...more

Successful people make plans, not the beautifully highlighted in pink and yellow with coloured shapes drawn over the top but one you create from within yourself. I did mine in a motorway services carpark where I had stopped for a rest. The CD is an important part yet I can't get mine to skip to the sections. It always starts at the beginning and I am totally relaxed after three minutes. Maybe I will leave it playing just so I can hear what is at the end!

The title caught my attention because how could you change your life in 7 days, there's no such thing as a quick fix however this book has seen a marked change in my attitude and behaviour. It reinforces lessons I've already learnt and taught me some really important lessons.

This is an easy to read book with lots of valuable information and if you have the wherewithal to implement the lessons, you can change your life and you will start to notice the difference quickly.

I will definitely be goi

Uma leitura agradável. Um bom livro para quem quer começar a traçar mudanças na sua vida. O autor foca muito o seu método o que pode levar-nos a fixar muito nele, pelo que é preciso ter sentido critico e alguma capacidade de aplicação e ajuste à realidade de cada um.
Um livro realmente interessante e motivador que nos traz algumas estratégias bem engraçadas que nos ajudam a fazer aquelas pequenas mudanças no dia-a-dia.

A great practical motivating book. Taking notes on the exercises and quotes from the book and applying them to my life made a huge difference in the way I look to people and things.
I recommend this book to everyone out there.

One of my favorite books وحدة من كتبي المفضلة
بتعرف وبتستوعب نفسك وأفكارك .
التمارين اللي في الكتاب حلوة وأغلبها مثل ال meditation
لغة الكتاب مو صعبة بس طبعاً احتجت استخدم ترجمة قوقل لترجمة بعض المفردات .

Positive feedback, self affirmation, and guided imagery. Put them together, they're a powerful combination. If you do the exercises, they can make a difference. The title's a little over-hype, but, hey, you have to sell books, right?

Difficult to say much about this one.
It is supposed to be a guide on how to find happiness and success by following the proposed exercises inside the book. I think it will actually take way more than 7 days to change your life...

An entertaining lecture, which helps you to increase your daily confidence, in the same time remaining authentic. I have not heard the CD yet, I guess it will have a greater impact on me.
I don’t know why I just couldn’t get into this book, especially after how helpful I found I Can Make You Confident. Left off p.124.


P. 36
How to tell if a trait is part of your real self or just leftover negative self-image: “who you really are always feels like coming home.” (and three others)

P. 43
“All truly successful people accept their brilliance—they are not embarrassed by it.”

You take out 2 sheets of paper. On one you write who you are today; and on another what you want to be. Each day you take steps toward that achievement.
When you are depressed, you journal - everything that was happening at the moment: the people, the sounds etc...and learn from it

ABUSE: (statements people make)
"My children are so BACKWARDS."
"Peter is good with math; you are GREAT WITH MUSIC."
"There will be NO CARD PLAYING in this home."
"There will be NO DIRTY DANCING."
"You are a DIRTY BLONDE".
