Since I have made this list I have been working on learning to speak Russian as my major tape course of study.
|I have listened to many different success, motivational,
training, hypnotic, and subliminal tapes over a period of many years.
This started in 1982 when a company, SMI (Success Motivation International),
sent me a promotional tape, "Think and Grow Rich." It wasn't the type of
message that I expected. This tape talked about becoming rich within yourself
more than it talked about money. Ever since listening to Think and Grow
Rich, I have been a tape junkie. My entire life has changed and the way
in which I looked at others, the world and myself has completely changed,
forever and for the better. I highly recommend that all people throw
most of their music tapes to the dogs and listen to motivational tapes.
You will be a better more fulfilled person and the world will be a better
In my opinion, if you are new to tape listening, just stay with the motivational, success, and special training tapes. The subliminal and hypnosis tapes are a waste of your money, no matter what their adds say. Also, you really don't know what is placed on these tapes and what will be placed into your head. For example, the subliminal tape "Relieve Stress and Anxiety," literally torqued my jaws. Instead of feeling relaxed after listening to this tape, and I did listen to it many, many times, my jaw muscles hurt for hours. On the other side of the coin, the subliminal tape "Body Building" gave me a desire for plenty of fresh water and no sodas. When I listened to the audible side, this was one of the suggestions which was communicated to the listener.
|"A Fortune In Foreclosures," by Ed Beckley 4 tapes|
|"A New World of Listening" by Nightingale Conant Corp.|
|"The Art of Negotiation" by GenRad I. Nierenberg|
|"The Art of Relaxation" by Eric Tingstad
This is the Subliminal tape which literally torqued my jaws. I'm not kidding, after listening to this tape, my jaws hurt.
This is the Subliminal tape which gave me a noticeable difference in that I wanted water and not the soda's which I have been long addicted to.
|"Charting your Dreams"|
|"Clearly Understanding" The Success Education Believers Group, by James E. Tolleson|
|"Creating Cash Now," by Ed Beckley 6 tapes|
This is a subliminal tape, I couldn't notice any benefit.
|"The Excellence Challenge" by Tom Peters.
Even though I listened to this many times, it took many years to understand the true message. It's not just putting excellence in your business items, it's putting excellence in every aspect of your life: Keeping your house clean, keeping your language clean, and even keeping your thoughts clean (a hard thing to do with the movies and other media of modern America)

This tape along with his book, "How to Sell Anything To Anybody" are a must. They clearly show how a man with nothing but hard luck and no money can use his own efforts to become very wealthy. Thank you Joe.

|One thing that I learned was, "Do not loan your
tapes out!" Most people don't listen to them anyway, they just
say they will. And, most people will loan them to someone else and tell
you that you never gave them one of these tapes. Luckily, after working
as a computer programmer for many years, I learned to make backup copies
of my tapes. So I was able to retain, at least, a copy.
I have offered or suggested tapes to many people who are trying to get ahead themselves, but many times the reply is one of the following: I don't like anyone to tell me what to do. or they are just people making money by selling you these tapes. Yes, they do make money selling these tapes, but believe me, these people have been around the block several times. You can learn a tremendous amount by listening to their ideas and experiences without beating your head against the wall trying to duplicate their successes and their mistakes. It's like a man, Joe Cosman, said in one of his tapes, "When you stand on the shoulders of someone who has been there, you can see much farther." To be a good leader you must be a good follower, and to be a good follower you must be a good listener.
|The following is a list of the tapes which I currently
own.I listened to most of these tapes at least twenty times
and some tapes and tape sets over 100 times. There are quite a few tapes
which I have borrowed that I cannot remember their names and are not listed.
There is an electronic device used in computer circuits called a FIFO for First In First Out. Well, there is another device called a GIGO for Garbage In Garbage Out. This device is in your brain and the acronym is true, if you put garbage in you get garbage out. In other words, if you listen to most of the modern movies, videos, and tapes, you are putting garbage in. If you listen to positive thinking and instructional tapes, you have positive thoughts for an output. I am telling you the truth. Most people would rather listen to junk videos and music containing slander and gossip than do anything to improve themselves. Lee Quan Yue, former President of Singapore said a very important thing. With all of the new technologies that we now have we must program ourselves to use these new technologies effectively. These tape series are what everyone needs to effectively program ourselves for the future.
