To give you a better idea of the product produced, I will explain the entrepreneur and the pioneer behind this program.
Who is Brian Tracy?
He is a Canadian-American speaker and the Chairman of Brian Tracy International, a company that was founded in 1984 Vancouver Canada that specializes in personal and business training. For the past 30+ years, he has studied, researched, written and spoken on various aspects within economics, history, philosophy, psychology, and business, making him a guru in this particular field of self-help. Additionally, he has a university, also called Brian Tracey International, located in San Diego California of which is another avenue that his knowledge can be transferred.
To talk about how he got to where he is today, it’s important to understand his past. He grew up watching his parents struggle to make ends meet and hearing them complain that they don’t have enough money. This eventually fueled his curiosity as to why other families were able to live at a better quality of life while he was struggling, which has led to the belief that “people become what they think most of the time.” Also, a series of unfortunate circumstances (including a near-death experience in the Sahara desert) had led to a complete life transformation for him, hence his great success.
Based upon his past, this should lead you to a better determination of whether the product is good for you if it resonates with you, especially since he was not raised in a middle class or wealthy environment.
What are some of the products and services?
There are about 64 products available with the ability to be privately coached by Brian, see him speak at a seminar or learn how to be a coach in one of Brian’s seminars (all are separate prices).
The products can be further subdivided into 7 categories: Personal development, sales training, business training, Time management, Leadership training, Book Writing, and Public Speaking.
But for this particular article, we will be focusing on the “The Secrets of raising Super Kids” program.
The Secrets of Raising Super Kids review
This program is similar to that of my previous review on “How to Raise Happy, Healthy, Self-Confident Children” in that it talks about how to raise your children to be more self-confident and self-sufficient but it’s different in that it focuses on building solid relationships with your kids to ensure that you have fluid and open communication, which are very important in any parent-child relationship.
I must note that even though this audio lesson is much cheaper than “How to Raise Happy, Healthy, Self-Confident Children” training set, it is basically an overview of parenting principles. It doesn’t go as in-depth as “How to Raise Happy, Healthy, Self-Confident Children” because it is intended to be only 70 mins long. None-the-less, it is still a great read with some ideas that can be adapted. For example, during this lesson, Brian teaches how to recognize and honor the uniqueness of their children.
This is highly important because there are a lot of parents raising each of their children either the same way that they were raised or raising them to be an ideal child that they have in their head while ignoring the actual talents, gifts, and interests that the child has. This not only discourages the child from becoming who they are meant to be, it also means that the child is not self-sufficient, lacks self-confidence, has low self-esteem, is unhappy and eventually, they will distance themselves from their parent/parents. I highly recommend taking a look at this product if you feel that this represents you as a parent or if it resonates with you because of your relationship with your parents (and you wish to end the cycle).
There are several advantages to using this program:
- The program is set where you can learn at your own pace, in your own time and in any space.
- You can choose between getting the Physical CD, if you’re a bit old school, or downloading the mp3 if you cannot wait for shipping (and because it’s cheaper)
- It’s a one time buy so you can reference this program for years to come.
- It’s a good read for all stages of parenting. Therefore, no matter where you’re at in your parenting journey, you can benefit from this lesson.
- As I’ve stated before, because each individual is different, all suggestions and advice presented within this lesson may not apply to everyone. The lesson will have to be adjusted based upon your current circumstances.
- Physical CDs are prone to being scratched very easily, which makes them unreadable by DVD/CD devices. Therefore, they are not proper for long term use.
So should you buy?
As always, Brian is very transparent with his products so he ensures to leave disclaimers to let you know that:
1). The results of the program will vary based upon circumstances, time commitments, and how much of the program’s lessons that you decide to use with your children and
2). That some of the testimonials listed on the product page may discuss above average results but BrianTracy.com does not promise similar results.
Therefore, you may have to adjust his teachings a bit to suit both you and your child’s/children’s situation, personality, and interests for the training to be effective.
Additionally, there is an option to read some snippets of Brian’s lessons through his blog and a YouTube page that freely gives information on parenting as well as many, many others.
