Get the Life You Want: In Review

healthy living

A review of the book Get the Life You Want by Richard Bandler.  I promised this review when I wrote a recent article showing a healthy living technique from this book.

Richard Bandler is the co-founder of Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and in this book he consolidates in simple language decades of techniques he has created and successfully taught people to change their lives for the better quickly.

The book has an introductory section where Bandler teach’s you (and me too since I definitely learned) how NLP works and how to use it right away in your life.

He explains and teaches you how to locate and recognize your mental energy

He explains and teaches you how to harness this mental energy.

He explains and teaches you how to redirect this mental energy to change how you feel and think so you can find solutions to many different challenges in your life.


After the introduction of techniques the book is split into three sections: Getting Over It, Getting Through It and Getting To It.

Each of these sections offers detailed examples and step by step guidance on important life experiences topic like:

How to get over fears and phobias

How to get over bad memories

How to get through big events like interviews and tests

How to get to making big decisions

How to get to meet more people

How to get to making more money

Bandler repeats in many different ways the unique and powerful NLP tools that empower you to live the life you want. This repetition helped me burn the ideas into my own mind so I could use them more effectively.

To me the book which comes with a bonus education CD is a gem. I have read many NLP books and found them heavy and complicated to apply. But in less than 200 pages Bandler shows you how to get things together in your life. The Guardian Newspaper calls him ‘one of the Leonardo’s of our time’ and rightly so. He stands in the background as the mentor of many successful people like the now famous Paul McKenna who has written many self help books telling you how to use NLP in your life.

I recommend you buy this book (yes, I do have my own copy) and I believe if you apply what is in this book and the key is if you apply it I believe you can make a positive change in your life.
