The likely central reason why you’re stuck earning an income you’re not happy with has far less to do with your intellect, talent, or who you know, and much more to do with you being conditioned to accept a certain amount of income. You could think of this as your financial set point.John Assaraf
Another excellent product/book by John Assaraf. Innercise (short version because it is a long title) is an incredibly functional book that is easy to read, full of good stories, thought provoking and potentially life changing.
It is getting a bit hard to be seen as an impartial book reviewer at the moment because I only seem to be giving awesome reviews. But, to my credit – I know myself pretty well and the books that I would like to read, so it makes sense that I am likely to choose good books (for me). It also helps that I have completed many of Neurogym’s programmes over time and John Assaraf’s book Innercise felt like having a coffee with an old friend.
Having been a neurogym student for some time, I am probably a bit biased about Innercise but given that reviews are opinionated I’m not concerned. Sometimes you just have to take a stand – right?
John Assaraf (for me personally) has a great demeanor, doesn’t speak down to anyone and clearly has a heartfelt passion for helping others free themselves of blocks and personal struggles for wealth, weight loss, anxiety, business success, fear – the list goes on. This tone is also reflected in Innercise.
It was quite hard to find my favourite quote for Innercise because the whole book is full of post it tags and highlighted text. To be perfectly honest, Innercise sits permanently on my desk because it has so many tools throughout.
- Packed full of tools!
Seriously not joking when I say that this book is full of tools that you can implement daily and immediately throughout the book. Apart from the helpful advice that John Assaraf talks about, the book has specific ‘innercises’ to help with virtually anything. It may sound crazy to innercise but when you read the book and actually apply the innercises you will see virtually immediate results if you stick with them and apply them consistently. For me, seeing actual results is a real bonus because most other things take time to materialise results. Again, for me – others may have better manifesting powers! As a past sufferer of anxiety. I am happy to say that innercises daily has sent my anxiety attacks packing.
2. Backed by Tonnes of Online Resources
At the end of every chapter, there is a scanny thing (not sure what they are called) for your phone that will take you directly to the relevant guided innercise audio and physical resource – where available.
3. Scientifically Proven!
Even if you are new to the idea that your brain can be re-programmed, this book is packed with scientific research that supports the view that re-programming can actually be done and truly works. That is not the only thing that I liked about Innercise. Apart from the Science, there are stories or “Real People’ as John Assaraf puts it. It’s kind of empowering to read about other people that have benefited from doing this work. Not only does it make things more real but it kind of sets a ballpark for what you can achieve.
- It’s a Lot To Take In!
Innercise is a reasonably short book (271 pages) with a relatively large font but it has a lot of information to take in. Especially if you are in the early days of applying the innercises but having said that, you don’t have to apply it all at once. If you buy this book, read it through once and then go back and focus on the areas that are most important/pertinent to you.
2. Takes Committment
As with any spiritual development, any successes or lasting change takes a time committment. The good news here is that even a little bit of innercise will help on a daily basis. You can tailor the time commitment to suit your life by focusing on the main areas that you want to see improvement or just doing the shorter innercises. Yes, there is a time commitment but it’s worth it. The easiest thing that I found was to add it into my daily morning routine. I am sure afternoon’s work just as well for people with too much on in the morning already.
I have this quote from Innercise that reflects a quote that is on my wall:
Intention + Action = Manifestation
“There are three core neuro-muscles:
Awareness, to bring new insight to things inside and outside you that you barely notice and to give you the ability to choose.
Intention, to use the choice offered by awareness to decide what it is that you want.
Action, to focus on that chosen path and deliberately choose how you will think, feel and act.”John Assaraf
As I have said, Innercise is not just another desk ornament. This is a book that I refer to often and will probably read again in it’s entirety. The book is not expensive, can be read and implemented pretty quickly and comes with a bunch of free online tools that I paid to have (in some cases) when I brought “Winning the Game of Fear” and “Winning the Game of Money” from Neurogym. The tools are supportive, useful and easily accessed.
Even if you have a number of the Neurogym programmes, this book is just a good read and will only add to what you have already purchased/practiced.
This is an excellent book for anyone that wants to beat the bogeyman, increase awareness, be more mindful, attract more wealth or more focus, improve your self talk and help you focus on your big goals. I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in personal development and living an easier life.
As John Assaraf says:
“Innercises are fast, reliable techniques to help you strengthen each of your core neuro-muscles.”John Assaraf
