    This was such a motivational and inspiring book. Riana Milne and Alexi Planos do a great job of delivering their insight in a positive and real way. This is not just some feel good advice, but a lot of practical information. It is not just, “You can do it!” Which is great to hear but the authors lay out real strategies and activities on how to achieve and live a fuller life. I highly recommend.

    Have you ever been told you cannot do something or felt like you

    Have you ever been told you cannot do something or felt like you can't reach your dreams? Have you ever lost motivation to accomplish your goals and are looking for something to get you back on track? Everyone at some point in their lives has felt this way, including myself. I picked this book up and my life changed forever. 




    I was completely blown away by Riana's empowering and strong messages throughout her book. This is one of those books that everyone should be required to read just for the fact that it WILL help you. It's not an opinion, it's a fact. It will help you put aside your fears and anger and focus on believing in yourself and achieving what everyone wants, success. 




    If you are finding difficulties in reaching your goals and dreams, then this is the first book I would suggest you to pick up. Riana will guide you through the obstacles in your life to overcome them and Live Beyond Your Dreams. Anyone of any age can profit from this highly informative book, and should be part of regular curriculum in schools growing up. 




    I have heard great things about Riana Milne's public speaking, and I can only hope that at some point I will get the opportunity to see her speak. Overall I give this book 5/5!

    I LOVED this amazing FEEL GOOD book! I read it first, then insisted that my teenage kids read it to empower them to stand up for themselves, and go for their dreams without hesitation. I liked Riana Milne's writing style, and her examples of how she used the WATCH ME Motivational Mindset for success when she and her kids went through challenges really helped me on how easy, yet effective this positive mindset can work to change your life. I liked the contribution by her daughter, Alexi Panos, which made my kids really relate to the book. Instead of junky books, this book inspired my kids - and me - to grow to be a better person, parent, and Boss to my employees. I gave all my employees a gift of this book over the holidays to inspire their grown as well. READ this book! Then buy Riana's other book, LOVE Beyond Your Dreams - it was AMAZING - about how to have a quality, evolved, Love Relationship Johnny B!

    I have acknowledged great things about Riana Milne's books, but I became her admirer after I read her book, LIVE Beyond Your Dreams. I fell for it after reading a few pages. She writes about how to use positive thinking while going through the difficulties of life, which helps you stay focused and reach your destiny, no matter how difficult. She quoted examples from her own life which really helped me to understand how the Watch Me! approach works, and how to use it. Riana's book delivers such a strong message that anyone, be it male or female, young or old - can relate to. Riana offers deep insight into aspects of our lives that many never even touch due to fear and one’s past history. It’s a great way to mend into reality all the dreams in your life, by using the many helpful and savvy techniques. This is an amazing book and I will recommend it to others as well.

    Live Beyond Your Dreams is one of those books that could really set you free.
    You can sit down and read cover to cover, and then revisit for advice on those difficult days.
    There's a chapter in here for everyone. I, for example, could really do with changing the negative little
    voices in my head that drag me down, there's a chapter for that.
    I also enjoyed the chapter on spiritual importance and how useful it is for growth and healing.

    If you are in the mood to be happier and more successful this is the book for you!

    Live Beyond Your Dreams is a self-help book that weaves very bas

    Live Beyond Your Dreams is a self-help book that weaves very basic psychological principles with the author's journey of applying those principles in her own life. Additionally, at many points, it seems to be more self-promotional in nature than aimed at truly helping someone through their struggles. However, it also seems that the Watch Me! mentality has improved the author's life and those around her and her repeated anecdotes are not intended as boasting, but as examples for how well the system can work in a person's life. As an experienced mental health professional, I can accurately say that many of the solutions offered are overly simplified; however, this may be a strength of the book in that the advice offered is simple to understand and apply. If you are looking for a self-help book that includes general spiritual concepts (not appearing to be anchored to any specific religion), an emphasis on positive thinking, and basic behavioral changes (e.g., "Listen to motivational CDs in your car on the way to work", "be forgiving and a good friend") than the Watch Me! Method may be for you. If, however, you are looking for a deeply religious or more in-depth discussion of proven psychological interventions and strategies, I would not suggest this book for you.

    Finally, if you have read this book, tried the strategies, and experienced limited or no success, please do not get discouraged! Many of the positive thinking strategies included in this book are slightly misguided. Psychological science has demonstrated that it is not positive thinking that helps with depression or anxiety but realistic, balanced thinking- this is an important distinction that is not made in the book.

    This basic book covers the development and key principles of Milne's "Watch Me" self-motivation system. This mother and daughter author team uses personal anecdotes to describe a ten-step program to greater personal success. Although the narration was to demonstrate the principles and applications discussed in the book, in real life situations, many times the tone came across as boasting and self-promotional.

    Live Beyond Your Dreams: From Fear and Doubt to Pers

    Live Beyond Your Dreams: From Fear and Doubt to Personal Power, Purpose and Success, written by Riana Milne, is a self-help book that uses the author’s trademarked Watch Me program to instil self-confidence in people with low self-esteem to help them become more successful both personally and professionally. The author explains how she came to develop the program through her own experiences and lays out the ways the reader can use it to benefit him/her. To be honest I found that much of the book was spent extolling the accomplishments of the author and her family and telling their story rather than laying out the program. There is a confidence bordering on arrogance that I found to be quite off-putting and essentially the book is just one big infomercial for the Watch Me! Program. There is lots of interesting information throughout that I found helpful but it’s not ground breaking, rather just obvious things. Some of it I found to be really overbearing and annoying such as the suggestion that a woman should do her hair and makeup to achieve success or eat primarily vegetarian and protein foods. I’m pretty sure there are lots of successful people out there that have done neither thing. The author comes off as believing herself to be an expert in everything, especially when she lists all of her accomplishments. With so many books on the market in the self-help genre this would not be one of my picks.

    Live Beyond Your Dreams¿ is a positive, motivational self-help b

    Live Beyond Your Dreams” is a positive, motivational self-help book about letting go of fears and anger, believing in yourself, and achieving success. Its author starts with a little about herself, sharing her own path to success (one that started with the trauma of asking for a divorce) and her two daughter’s paths to success. She changed her name and her outlook, employing what she calls the “Watch Me!” mindset, and then set out to achieve her dreams.

    I really liked the concept of this book, especially that it focused on true confidence—not anger or ego, but on liking yourself and believing in yourself. She urges constant mental positive self-talk, meditation, and connecting with some sort of spirituality to find peace. She also gives guidance for achieving goals with the five Ds: desire, determination, dedication, devotion, and daring to dream.

    While the message was good and got me inspired, I can’t say that this book introduced anything too groundbreaking for me. It also had too much information and advice—from cutting out toxic relationships to life balance triangles and marriage to advice on childrearing, it was a little long. I wished she had broken it down into maybe multiple volumes and been more specific about each piece of advice.

    While the author’s message is strong and I like how positively she presented it, I just didn’t find that this book would really change my life if I followed it (though she does say her methods won’t work if you don’t have some sort of spiritual grounding, which is something I by choice have no interest in).
