Jim Rohn was one of America’s foremost self help
philosophers. He was at once very profound and yet
very simple to understand. His advice was at once
simple to implement and yet almost magical in its
results. How did he do it?

100 Ways To Motivate Yourself – by Steve Chanlder

I listened to the audio program 100 ways to motivate yourself by Steve Chandler, not really expecting anything much.

I was pleasantly surprised.

This is by far one of the better self help programs.

Having read and listened to a lot of such stuff before, I found many gems.

Below are some of my favorite ones:

Tip# 1) When it comes to creating and sustaining your relationships, use your head and not your heart.

This one surprised me. But when I think about it, one of the reasons some of my relationships failed was that I took it too much to heart. As Steve Chandler said, elevate your relationships by bringing them into the realm of your mind instead of killing them by retaining in the heart.

Tip #2) This one is interesting for all public speakers among us. One of my colleagues has a deep baritone voice which helps tremenduously when it comes to making an impact on the audience.

My voice is not and I was resigned to it remaining like that till I heard Steve’s personal experience.

When you listen to his audio programs you can’t help but get impressed with his deep hypnotic voice. It was not always like that. He had a squeaky voice to start with. He practiced speaking at full volume and eventually ended up with such a powerful voice that he does not even need a microphone!

So I am practising to speak like him.

So far it is not working, my friends ask me whether I have a cold :(

The Game Plan For Life – Health

I work out 5 times a week, eat mostly home cooked food and am largely free of disease. So would you consider me healthy. I did until the day I read this wonderful book called ‘Gameplan for Life’ by Joe Gibbs. It is a book based on Bibilical principles. I had a similar reaction reading this as I did Joel Osteen’s book. Read my earlier post about Joel Osteen..

We actually have 4 kinds of health. And health as we normally know of, physical health, is the least important of them all!

Re Inventing Yourself – Steve Chandler

This is easily one of the better motivation books that I have read in a long time.It is about 200 pages long. Your spirits start lifting the moment you begin reading this book. This is a book of  action. Be warned there is no new age mysticism here. Several powerful concepts are laid out in a manner that even a corpse would get it.It is uncanny how he anticipates the reader’s next question and how well he answers it. Heck he asks tougher questions of his teachings than I could even think up of.Several  authors out there rush to put out whatever it is that they want to say and leave it at that. Steve is different. It appears that he wants his readers to get it.

Below are the important concepts that I summarized from the book and my personal experiences with some of them.
