Instaread Summary of Awaken the Giant Within How to Take Immediate Control of Your Mental, Emotional, Physical & Financial Destiny! by Tony Robbins
Four out of five stars
Over the course of my career as a reviewer, I have read many self-help books. This experience prepared me to properly react when I read the list of 11 key takeaways in this summary. All that may be needed is to change a word or two and they can describe the contents of most other books in the self-help genre.
For example, number one is
“The power of decision-making is the single most important factor in personal growth and transformation.”
In other words, “Take charge of your life.” Sound familiar?
Number seven is
“Personal responsibility is essential to growth and transformation.”
Number eleven is
“People can learn to harness the power of their emotions, positive and negative, to direct their lives in a more productive and fulfilling way.”
This summary does what all summaries are intended to do, push the reader to one side of the read/don’t read matrix. In my case, I am wearing concrete galoshes on the don’t read side. There appears to be little new or original material in the book.
