    Makes dreams come true

    40 years ago I had the experience of a lifetime when I took the opportunity to attend a sales seminar at which Dr Peale was the key note speaker. His message-You Can If You Think Can-is as true TODAY as it was back then. Always Believe in Yourself and Drive to achieve your goals. There are ups and downs in life. Set your course and only make positive changes. Dream Big eg. Family first and then work towards to all your goals. Never quit and you will achieve all your reachable goals. Good Luck.

    Great tonic and booster

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Didn't make much headway on the paperback so switched to the audio version and that was far more enjoyable and a short listen!

    What did you like best about this story?

    Lots of recurring themes in this book that I've read / learnt from others and this repetition only helps to strengthen your beliefs.

    What does Norman Vincent Peale bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    What was enjoyable was that its by Dr Peale himself and I always like listening to the actual author as somehow and in this case it energises the book. Listening to that drawl and the cadence of his voice transports you into the past, its like some old grandfather or learned gentleman speaking to you

    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    Although the messages are quite familiar I still found the book to be most uplifting and a great tonic whilst running to boost your confidence and strengthen your fortitude and remind you that you can if you think you can, such true words!

    It was a great piece of work

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    it gets to the point quickly in an encouraging way.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    His attitude was my favorite character. He was very enthusiastic no made up stuff

    Have you listened to any of Norman Vincent Peale’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    He is the same in this one.

    Any additional comments?

    I have read that someone was disappointed that he talks about God a lot. The thing is that Mr Peale is a minister. And it is not in the way of learning about what his message is.

    Affirm you can and remove doubt.

    Narrator was easy to understand and presentation of material was laid out well.
    I took away a few pieces of advice with practical steps to practice in my own life that I hope will become habit and move me towards accomplishing the goals I have set out.
    I would recommend this book to anyone who struggles with doubt or completing projects in any aspect of life.

    Great content but the reader is not

    This book has great content. However, the voice of the reader is not inspiring to me.

    Only One Chapter

    If you are looking for the book You Can If You Think You Can this is not it. This is only one chapter of fourteen chapters of the actual book. I have the book and I wanted to listen to it while on a trip. I made a mistake while driving and buying this one chapter, and of course, it didn't state it was only one chapter until I opened it.

    Short but insightful

    this provides a short but poignant insight on how to tackle challenges as well as the k8mdset required to overcome them. I still prefer the paperback version as it goes in depth.

    Really helped me in a time of need

    I was going through a difficult situation at work. Didn't think I could do anything and started fearing for the worse. This book came at the right time. So timely. I recommend it to all! :)

    Amazing

    I realise now that positive things happen to positive people and the thought of failure itself is destructive. Miracles happen to people who have faith and when you have faith in God, you are also able to have faith in yourself.
    Thank you Norman and I hope you keep writing books
    I use to think why me, it's because I am a bad person but now realise life is a struggle and it will only be mastered if you overcome your obstacles and think of solutions for your problems without your emotions getting in the way.
