Best Of Life Coaching DVDs Print E-mail
Wednesday, 18 June 2008
In this Best Of feature we compared five life coaching DVDs. Each of them presents the much talked about Law of Attraction and presents tools and ideas on how to make it work for you.

The Process
We asked readers and Harmonious Living staff to take part in this process with two people watching each of the DVDs. We asked each of them to set a goal and gave them a month in which to put into practise what they learnt from their particular DVD. We asked the participants to make sure they watched their DVD at least once every week.

Scoring & Comments
The participants were asked to rate each of the following aspects out of five, with five being the highest score.
  • Was the DVD engaging?
  • What did you think of the quality?
  • Were the tools clearly explained?
  • Did you stay motivated throughout the whole process?
  • Do you want to continue to put into practise what you’ve learnt?
  • Are you any closer to achieving your goals?

You Can Heal Your Life

You Can Heal Your LifeFeaturing: Louise Hay, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, Louise Hay, Gregg Braden, Christiane Northrup, Doreen Virtue, and more.

What it says on the box
“This entertaining and inspirational movie hosted by best-selling author Louise L. Hay and directed by Emmy award winner Michael Goorjian gives penetrating insights into her fascinating life story; and also provides clarity on how her views on self-esteem, abundance, and the metaphysical causes behind physical ailments were developed.”

Our description
The film itself is about 90 minutes in length and is woven around the story of a young woman who is full of negative thoughts and, simply put, is not in a great place in her life. Whilst walking to work she finds a Louise Hay affirmation card on the pavement and then begins a journey of self discovery through the teachings of Louise Hay and others.

The bonus DVD contains over 4 hours of additional interviews and an interactive affirmations tool.

Who we think it’s for
This DVD is suitable for everyone, it’s easy to relate to and understand the tools and teachings contained in it.

Comments from the participants
“My goal was to get a new job that was emotionally, spiritually and financially rewarding. Since starting this process I’ve received two job offers, I had an interview this morning and have another next week”.

“It has also changed my current situation - before I started this process I was in such a bad place at work, I hated my job, I hated the people I worked with, I was just unhappy. Now people laugh at work, and that’s never happened before, it’s now a completely different environment. … it’s obviously me in the way that I’m relating to others. I feel like now I’m in the ideal job.”

“I found that the affirmations really helped me to become more confident and secure and to have belief in myself”.

“The biggest lesson I learnt was that ‘I’m in control of every single thing’, not necessarily the events in my life but how I respond to them.”

“My goal was related to financial abundance and whilst I didn’t achieve my goal in its entirety I did notice that money came more easily to me and I had a more positive outlook on this aspect of my life.”

“I found Louise’s teachings and her story to be inspirational. I thought that the affirmations presented in the bonus section of the DVD were an excellent way to immediately put into practise the lessons from the movie.”

“The bonus interview footage was great! So much information from so many powerful thinkers and leaders. I never tired of watching this DVD and all it had to offer.”

The Secret

The SecretFeaturing: Esther Hicks, Rhonda Byrne, Hale Dwoskin, Mike Dooley, Bill Harris, Fred Alan Wolf, Dennis Waitley, Marci Shimoff, John F. DeMartini, Marie Diamond, Michael Beckwith, Lee Brower, Morris Goodman, Bob Proctor, John Assaraf, James Ray, Joe Vitale and more.

What it says on the box
“The Secret reveals the most powerful law in the universe. The knowledge of this law has run like a golden thread through the lives and the teachings of all the prophets, seers, sages and saviours in the world's history, and through the lives of all truly great men and women. All that they have ever accomplished or attained has been done in full accordance with this most powerful law.”

Our description
The information is presented by various experts each presenting their own teachings and their interpretation of the law of attraction. This is interspersed with often humorous enactments that help to relate these to our own lives. The key points of The Secret are presented in the bonus footage of the DVD.

Who we think it’s for
The Secret is a very accessible DVD offering lots of valuable tools for people looking to change their life for the better using the Law of Attraction. No prior experience is needed.

Comments from the participants
“There were many tools and techniques presented on the DVD to cater for a wide variety of people. In a way I found that this hindered my progress because it was difficult to pick a technique and apply that.”

“I found it useful and motivating to watch the DVD weekly as I picked up something new each time.”

“I haven’t reached my goal but I’m definitely closer than I was before I started the process. I feel more equipped and in control of my life.”

“I visited the website after watching the DVD and found it packed with useful information and resources. People are encouraged to share their experiences and this certainly helps to stay motivated.”

Introducing Abraham: The Secret Behind the Secret.

The Secret Behind The SecretParticipants: Esther Hicks, Jerry Hicks

What it says on the box
“Introducing Abraham: The Secret behind “The Secret”? This 3 ½ hour, double DVD set features in-depth interviews with Jerry and Esther Hicks and Abraham, answering many questions: What is the Law of Attraction? How did this all start? How did Jerry and Esther meet? How did they meet Abraham?”

Our description
The DVD is an interview with Ester and Jerry Hicks and is split into four chapters. The opening two chapters explain how Ester and Jerry came to be doing what they’re doing and explains how Ester’s connection with her spirit guide ‘Abraham’ works. In the second two chapters Abraham speaks through Ester and presents the teachings of the Law of Attraction and how it impacts upon our lives.

Who we think it’s for
We feel that some prior experience of metaphysical concepts is helpful in order to relate to the contents of the DVD.

Comments from the participants
“Ester gets her teachings from her spirit guide, which for me was a bit you know… it took a bit of a leap of faith…”

“The first two chapters didn’t interest me so I only watched the last two chapters more than once.”

“There were three steps, it was pretty clear - ‘ask, believe, and receive’. And I learnt that you have to be very specific about what you want. I also learnt to stop myself from having negative thoughts. It’s helped me to develop a really strong mind.”

“The one thing that I think was lacking in the DVD was that there was nothing about gratitude.”

Pass It On

Pass It OnParticipants: Gregory S. Reid, Scott Evans, David M. Corbin, Jon Dixon, Charlie “T” Jones, Brian Tracy, Les Brown, Debbie Allan, Alexander Hollifield, Dennis Waitley, Micheal Beckwith, John Assaraf, and many others.

What is says on the box
“Since the dawn of man it has been the innate desire and responsibility to pass evolved knowledge from one generation to the next. The success, setbacks, and triumphs by all preceding societies have been in direct proportion to how well they applied this wisdom. From the earliest cave drawings to Egyptian hieroglyphics, from hidden scrolls and leather bound books to Micro chips… Never has a generation passed where leaders of the era did not set out on the quest to teach their students of tomorrow. From congressmen to athletes, from motivators to movie stars… Each has followed a specific roadmap to become the top in their field, and now, they wish to share their strategies with you - so that you too can learn it, live it, and pass it on.”

Our description
The entire movie is filmed with blue screen technology with the teachers standing in front of a computer generated background. Greg Reid is the presenter of the movie and links to all the other teachers through the ‘bank of sustainable abundance’, with each vault in the bank containing a different lesson.

Who we think it’s for
This DVD particularly focuses on the attainment of wealth/career goals. As such people looking to improve these aspects of their life will benefit the most.

Comments from the participants
 “I had to watch the DVD at least twice because there’s a lot of information and principles to take in. It helped that I made notes and wrote things down. It was also very focused on wealth and careers which was very good for me as my goal was to find a new job.”

“I learnt that when you change who you are, your environment changes as well. I didn’t believe this at first but I do see it now, I’m a lot happier and more secure. I feel like I deserve it and this helped me to achieve my goal.”

“It was very focused on wealth, and jobs so it was very good for me.”

“Even though this DVD is focused on career and wealth building, which weren’t my goals, I did find that it has changed me in terms of I am now much more confident in myself.”

“I enjoyed what they said, ‘If you want to be successful in life you need to surround yourself with successful people’. The other thing that made a lot of sense was ‘you’ve got to learn to forgive people’. I’ve managed to let it go of some things…”

Our Conclusions

We were extremely surprised at how effective each of the DVDs were in helping the participants achieve their goals. In fact over half of them managed to achieve their goals in the time period set.

Some of the keys to success were;
  • Making notes whilst watching the DVD
  • Watching the DVD more than once
  • Setting a specific goal and putting a deadline to it
  • Making a plan of what to do and putting it into action
  • Being part of a group
