Using tapes for selfimprovement

Posted on Jul 03 2000

One of the commonest excuses that many of us give for not improving ourselves is we lack the time. We are too busy working or doing something else. The other excuse is that we don’t enjoy reading therefore we cannot improve ourselves. Have you ever considered listening to cassette tapes to learn? There is a tremendous library of self improvement tapes waiting for you to use.

By listening to tapes produced by outstanding professionals in many fields, it is like having them as close associates guiding you step by step to success in private. You can listen to a part of a tape or to a whole side.
You can repeat any portion until you master the ideas presented. There are no tests and no one need even know. The tapes can be listened to as you drive to and from work every morning or evening. You can listen to them while doing chores around the house instead of listening to the radio blaring nonsense at you. What a colossal idea for improving ourselves without embarrassment and no time frame!

While there are many companies producing these types of tapes, I am most familiar with the series produced by the Nightingale-Conant Corporation. This company produces over 100 various tapes covering subjects as Business.
Health and Wellness. Mind Technology. Personal Development. Religion. Sales. Skills. Spirituality. and Wealth Building. I personally have bought several and listen to them repeatedly over the years recharging my psyche.

Undoubtedly my favorite is Lead the Field with Earl Nightingale doing the narration. This series is composed of six cassette tapes for twelve discussions, one on each side. Hear why “attitude” is the magic word that shapes our life. Learn how to cultivate your mind into “an acre of diamonds.” On side 12, Mr. Nightingale talks about how you can become the “person on the white horse” or the leader everyone is seeking.

Use the tapes to help your children also. How to Build Your Child’s Esteem explains how to develop this vital quality. You will learn about the telltale signs of low esteem and how to correct them. Perhaps you may wish to teach your child how to handle money and to begin early investing it, than order Cash flow for Kids for your children between 6 and 15.

For personal selfimprovement in the workplace, select one of many tapes on business growth techniques. Consider The Effective Manager Seminar Series: Superior Sales Management which can turn your sales department into a moneymaking machine set on auto-pilot.

Listen to How to Develop Effective Communication Skills. We all know that communication is one of the most important words in any business. If you can communicate effectively, you and your business will move forward and most likely thrive. For your employees sake, listen to Motivating People Toward Peak. This tape is especially good to motivate your employees to increase their productivity and work quality. Who doesn’t want to do this?

If you need spiritual uplifting, there are tapes that will inspire and guide you to peace of mind. One of the best is called Conversations With God which puts forth several soulsearching questions such as: What does God want and expect from me? Why do things like evil and illness exist?

Earl Nightingale puts it succinctly when he states: “Success as a human being in modern society does not come naturally. It requires the conscious utilization of ourselves our talents and skillsin the service of others; a certain amount of time and free will.”
