Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
There are two kinds of people, asserts motivational speaker Chandler: victims and owners. Transforming oneself from the victim mindset to the owner mindset is the purpose of this recording. Possessing "the spirit"--that is, the right attitude--is the key to making the change, and the spirit must be lit again each day. Victims allow things to happen to them; owners make things happen. Language is a powerful weapon--victims use "should" and "ought," owners use "can" and "will." The victim is "swamped" by all the things he/she has to do; the owner is "focused" on the tasks before him/her. Chandler quotes Voltaire: "No problem can stand the assault of sustained thinking"--worrying about a problem is not thinking about it because worrying does not seek solutions. Owners address problems rather than avoiding them. Practice is a powerful weapon against the mediocre life. Losing is not defeat. Happiness can be mastered. Chandler's narration in this three-hour program is soothing, which may inspire some and put others to sleep. Useful for self-help collections.--Nann Blaine Hilyard, Lake Villa Dist. Lib., IL

    changed my whole life!!!!

    This book truly changed my life! I had been severly depressed for years. I had many obstacles from childhood and adulthood that had hurt me very deeply. I never thought I could heal. I was tired of the constant depression, anger, anxiety, isolation, loneliness, and despair that I felt each day. I felt I didn't have any control over my life. I felt victimized by my past. This book should be read by any woman with self esteem issues. I learned that my life is what I make it. My outward attitude towards myself, others, and everything else is reflected in what I can expect to get back from the world. If I want to be miserable forever, then I could outwardly appear miserable and thats what I would be. If I wanted good things in life I could make it happen by being my best person, putting myself out there and 'faking the pleasantness and excitement for life' until I could begin to use the techniques and feel the happiness and excitement for life! This book is easy to read and implement into your life. Its better than $20,000.00 of therapy. It gave me insights to myself and others' that I was unable to learn on my own.

    This book is only for those who truly want to change!

    Steven Chandler is great reading sparks the a true believer to move in a direction that is called action! I have re-read his book at various times. Each reading reveals a new idea that I can take to the bank. Some personal inside information that I will share with others. This gentleman sent me a copy of one of his tapes and I digested it AND used it to more than triple my earnings in little more than 1 year. I want to send my eternal thanks to him and wait for additional books, thanks Steve!

    Making your life the way you have always dreamed of

    This book teaches you the thought process required to be successful in anything you do. It has affeceted every part of my life at home,work,social. I have created a new me, not that the old one was bad but this one is better. After reading this book you will be able to accomplish anything and I mean anything. The simple writing style makes it read so easy that it's hard to believe how powerful it will affect you. After reading this book everyone around me wanted to know what my secret is. I had become so happy and enthusiastic they wanted to do the same thing. I told them about the book Chandler had written. They all bought copies that day.

    Repetitive and discontinuous

    I felt this book is an autobiography of part of Steve Chandler's life. Each chapter repeats the same point over again. He quotes many people, but doesn't tell their significance. For example, he uses a quote by Buckminster Fuller. I know who he is because I am a scientist, but how many laymen would know? His point is that there are two types of people; owners and victims. Most victims aren't going to read this kind of book. To owners, he gives very nonspecific advice about how to help victims. He doesn't encourage the reader to change until the last third of the book, and then only briefly, and again, in a nonspecific way. I had a hard time staying focused on the book because it was so discontinuous. For example, at the end, he begins a letter to the reader with 'Dear Reader' but he wanders back into his book content without telling you where the end of the letter was. The entire book was written in a very informal style, like a letter instead of an instructional book. I also found him contradictory. In the beginning he faults motivational writers for depending on your will to get you to where you want to go, then later in the book, he tells you to will yourself into a change. I did get a few pointers from it, but putting them into practice have not been as fruitful as I would have liked. I have not been able to help a co-worker with a very sour attitude toward our company, for example. I do not recommend this book unless you need some reading to fill short time periods, such as breaks, or waiting in the car, etc. It has very short chapters that lend itself to this situation.
