Publisher's Summary

Success Is for You draws upon many concepts that fans of Dr. Hawkins will recognize and applies them to the world of business and the psychology of success. Expanding upon the illuminating discussion of the attractor patterns of success from Power vs. Force, this remarkable never-before-published book pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of the successful mind. Success, according to Dr. Hawkins, is an attitude we inhabit rather than a goal we strive for.

New listeners will find this to be a perfect introduction to an incredible teacher and foremost expert on mental processes, providing profound insights and real-world examples to help anyone focus on - and consequently achieve - what they desire. This fascinating book reveals:

  • The causality formula for success (and deconstruction of so-called failure)
  • How goodwill can actually turn to profit
  • Nine acid-test steps to determine our mode of being
  • How to get to the top (and why the destination is really our starting point)

Yet its scope ranges far beyond a mere how-to manual. As Dr. Hawkins says, "Having facts and know-how...does not guarantee success. There are other factors involved. It is these other secret factors that we are going to explore." The secret factors - the energetic power principles underlying success - are decoded here...delivering an eternal message of possibility for us all.

Actually some new stuff for me...

I've read a LOT I. the fields of success. psychology, philosophy, spiritually etc.

I don't actively look for "something new" but rather for new viewpoints and a deeper understanding.

This was my first (not last) exposure to the author. He has a couple unique viewpoints. Some things I'd never considered. The book is deep and definitely a keeper. Read it.

If I had one beef with the book it's that it occasionally takes on a slightly judgemental tone. Especially, he repeatedly talks about restaurants and wait staff. I would venture a guess that he's never done it based upon his criticism. Yes, it is criticism and not in a round about way.

To anyone who's been in the business it's a source of eternal frustration that people have these universal criticisms ONLY if they've never done it.

It's not just that but the fact that he criticizes that is a little less favourable. It's not just the criticism but it takes 1/3 of the space of the book. I feel the points could have been made without it.

That said, the book is excellent even still.

It starts slow so be patient. The last 3 chapters are where it's at. hang in there.

Very basic

This was discovered in 2015. Consequently, I didn't realize it was actually written in the 1990s. It's pretty basic business info. None of the material from his later books is included. While that makes sense, given that it predates Eye of the I, Power v Force, etc by several years, it was still disappointing.

It's not bad. It's just very basic. Given the time investment in listening, I'd recommend choosing some of Hawkins' later works, which are exceptional.

Hmm...

It was difficult to enjoy this audio book as most of the chapters are filled with complaints about restaurants and the word "boring" was used repeatedly... which makes it... dare I say, boring? I understand using examples of bad customer service in restaurants to illustrate how people fail but to use it over and over and for so many chapters, it just becomes tedious. It is clear to me that Mr. Hawkins must have his diet soda, thousand island dressing, ginger ale, etc, to feel satisfied and for the check to arrive on demand. But rather than learning about success by the end of the book, all I kept thinking was "Maybe he should open up his own restaurant and apply all the rules/things he likes." Suffice to say, I didn't get much from this. Unfortunately.

Love, Understanding, Communication, Kindness, & Yourself

Having now listened to this audio book four times, I’ve felt compelled to write this contrast. Hawkins surmises his journey to succeed with ingenuity, thoroughly. From being a clever pupil paying his way through medical school to an acclaimed postdoctoral practitioner of medicine in his life, he achieves the outlines of a notable figure of great sensibility. This book, his final one, has been a great beginning to build on my ever expanding knowledge of him as a person. Lownds narrates the text perfectly with a seemingly folksy grandfatheresque tone throughout. It’s his audible expertise that kept me enthralled and willing to relisten to it as many times that I did. To those interested in a book that can serve as an excellent primer for rational notoriety, this is a smash success. Incidentally, another great book out there that can be an excellent follow up is written by Jess Lair. Though I’m personally unaware if these two men knew each other, they both serve to help their fellow human being better edify themself.

Very Enjoyable

This book is an excellent book to read after Letting Go. There are some exercises in the book that I have yet to try, but they sound promising in aligning with the success vibration.

Hawkins fan, but this was disappointing.

Unfortunately very basic and dated. When I got to the part where he praises WalMart for its great quality and atmosphere, I just could not take it anymore.

don't expect much

sounds like he wrote the book either before all others. the doctor sounds like a grumpy old person with nothing but complaints on how businesses act like and projecting his feelings and experience on others. a quote that's unlike him if you read his other books "I always thought that we're judged on our death bed on wether or not we did our best in life"

Success is for you, is for YOU!

This book is fantastic. I have already listened to many books by the author on the avenues to enlightenment, which are quite complex at times (although I personally loved them) but this one is really practical and much easier to grasp. It doesn’t matter who you are, what stage of life you’re at, or if you have any spiritual experience, this book suits all. And even if you are more spiritual and enlightened, this book builds on that too. Loads of funny stories provide aha moments and realisations. The narrater has a lovely soothing kind voice and even though I love Dr Hawkins and his teachings, his own reading voice is not particularly easy to listen to because he sounds so sleepy. Therefor I have only bought one of his books read by him and after that I have stayed with the ones read by Peter Lownds.

Another hidden gem from our beloved Doc.

Not much to say except that the book was great. Exceptional. Narrator was also great. If I remember correctly Doc once said on his lectures "you have to master the world to transcend it" and this book, his last book, is that last peace of the puzzle if success is the part of your spiritual path. The message of the book had a profound impact on me like always when reading/listening Doc's books. l always have a sense of familiarity with the topic when reading his books because there is so much power in his words that you instantly know that that what he says is true. I'm so grateful that I came in contact with his work.

A book for business owners & Doc fans

I run my own business and have done so since 2018. The principles outlined in this book were a great reminder of all I hold dear and the foundations of what I set out to achieve in business as well as my personal life, but can sometimes forget! Stand out concepts for me were:

- There is no competition for successful companies!

- Success is a state of mind and a way of being, not a formula or an advertising strategy.

- The most important factor in the success of any business is to stick to high principles no matter what.

This book may sound a little old fashioned in places (due to the age of the author no doubt) but the principles behind it ring true to me as a conscious business owner. Thank you Susan Hawkins for bringing this book into the world, it is a real gift :)

This This is a fantastic book it has so many useful tips and it really shows you what is important in achieving success in business the thing that this book highlight is the fact that internal position is the most important things not any external determining factors

This book is about the TRUE meaning of success

I listened to the Audible version of this book, brilliantly narrated by Peter Lownds, but will be adding a 'physical' version to my collection. I don't know if my rating of this as an 'ABSOLUTELY GREAT' book is biased by the fact that I have a high regard for David R Hawkins work in general (I have bought most of his books) or if it is because what he says resonates so completely with me). Whatever it is I have no qualms in recommending this book (along with his books in general) to anyone seeking understanding of Reality and Life beyond the mere physical, in order to get the most out of this earthly experience.

weird mix

I think this should have probably stayed as a manuscript. there are some inspiring gems in here, padded with negative ramblings about queues in restaurants or shops.

True & honest

This is just what I needed today. Helped me to find my positives thinking while being in really stressful time.
Recommended to everyone who sometimes needs a little bit of help to remembering about open mind and heart.

Wow! This is a must listen.

Just what I expected from one of the greatest spiritual teachers of our time.

No fluff, no filler just good honest information you can use and put into practice. I highly recommend that anyone who truly seeks the path to fulfillment gives this book there attention.

Not only does Doc light up the pathway, he gives sound practical advise which anyone can easily follow.

There are many analogies which and references to restaurants and stores. This however, does give perfect real life examples of our humanness and how we really see the world around us.

This book will leave you astounded at just how much we miss every day because we are operating on auto pilot most of the time.

I even came up with a new CSI, just from listening. Only my CSI is:
Compassion - Service - Integrity.

Listen and learn from the wisdom of the Doc.

Peter Lownds has also done a fabulous job in the narration of the book. Easy to listen to and perfectly paced.

Disappointing

Dr Hawkins is one of my favorite authors but this book was mostly like a taxi driver chit chat; not much value there...just nagging about negative aspects of businesses 👎🏼

Another gem by Dr Hawkins

Like others, I thought that this book was too centered around restaurant selection and customer service stories, but near the end I realised that dr Hawkins was working on my left brain, to reach my right side of the brain, although he discloses this the beginning of book. This book won't disappoint readers familiar with Dr Hawkins teaching style, who are looking for reaching success in a pragmatic and enlightened way.
