America's notoriously unorthodox and creative personal growth guru Steve Chandler has written his most compact and powerful book yet in the Ten Commitments.

Chapter one is an introduction and helps the reader organize their energy. Steve starts with a reminder of the importance of balance and focus as keys to making things happen.
I found the story of Buckminster Fuller intriguing. Fuller introduced the concept of redesigning self, becoming a newly created personality. I was reminded of the importance of meditation in the commitment to use my mind while allowing the spirit to work through me in my commitment to spirit.
The ten chapters that follow each contain a commitment to success. These commitments are arranged in a logical progression from committing to your spirit, to your mind, and to action. Commitments to wealth, friends, partner and career are among the remaining seven considered.

Reviewed by Susan Pettrone for Reader Views (1/07)
"Ten Commitments to Your Success" by Steve Chandler is a small book of less than 100 pages, but within it's narrow binding packs a lot of advice and wisdom from the bestselling author of "100 Ways to Motivate Yourself." Divided into the ten commitments; to spirit, to mind, to action, to wealth, to friends, to commitment, to your partner, to career, to your body, and to music, this book is easily read and easily absorbed by readers from all walks of life.
From the beginning section entitled "commitment to spirit," the reader is introduced by the author to the idea that we are beings in this world who live with "spirit" everyday and that it is an important part of us as individuals. According to the author, spirit is most easily noticed in our lives when we take a step back and watch from afar, seeing spirit for what it really is and letting it appear in its true light. Spirit is present in each of our lives and it is only when we realize that it is there, that we can fully appreciate it and grow from its existence within us. And so this book continues from this point.
As the author covers all ten of the commitments he feels are vital to a satisfying and complete life, he illustrates that it is only with the commitment of all ten of these areas, that we can truly be content within our lives for who and what we are. In this day and age of discontent around every corner; from the man on the street complaining about politics or the salesclerk in the corner store, feeling "down" about his dead end job, it seems to me that would the average person, implement this author's ideas, that life would not only be more pleasant for those individuals but for all those who come in contact with them as well.
I must admit, when I picked up this book I was a bit reluctant to begin reading it and, in fact, placed it at the bottom of a stack of books I was to review. But when the stack came to the end and I was faced with this book, once opened, I found it's information not dry and typical as I expected it to be, but easy, not only to read, but to envision applying to my life as well. There are a lot of books on the market today that promise a "quick change" to ones life or a "miraculous, revolutionary way to improve ones being." This book is not that way. It speaks to the common man in language that is easily absorbed, with practical advice and everyday stories which illustrate well the author's intentions within its covers.
I would suggest "Ten Commitments to Your Success" book to all those who are sincerely looking for a way to change their lives through solid commitment. One caution though with this book. Don't read it expecting to only apply one or two principles to your life. This book is the total package and one that must be sincerely and completely read with the intention of applying and working with all ten commitments to better ones life. All ten commitments work together like pieces of a puzzle to give the user the total picture. And it is only when all ten pieces are placed in the right areas within our lives that the true puzzle is solved and the final image revealed. Be prepared to think differently about your life and the commitments you make within it after reading this book. "Ten Commitments to Your Success" is a book that will change your perspective simply by committing yourself to its principles within its pages and by making the decision to begin a new commitment to your life and yourself as well.

Remembering What You Want Feb 13, 2005
Steve Chandler's Ten Commitments is like a fantasy retreat with the world's greatest poets, artists, philosophers, scientists, entrepreneurs and self-help gurus. You'll have seminars with Leonardo and Michelangelo, strolls with Gandhi and Buddha, workshops with Emerson and Thoreau, dinner with Deepak Chopra and Wayne Dyer, and fireside singalongs with Paul McCartney and Leonard Cohen. The trick is that Chandler is there to make all the introductions and put every song, every story, every insight into the context of how an "average" life can be organized to achieve extraordinary outcomes through commitment. Written with uplifting wit and down-home simplicity, Ten Commitments is scarcely 90 pages in length, but contains a virtual encyclopedia of ideas and wisdom. It's a book that could define your reading list for a decade.
Straight Talk About Improving All Of Your Life Feb 9, 2005
I've read this and most other of Chandler's books. Be forewarned....if you need a "system" or some magic tricks to lead a better, more purposeful life, you won't find them here. Chandler gives it straight from the heart (and mind). Make commitments, honor commitments. Inspire yourself daily to do more, to be more.
One of Chandler's finest attributes as a writer is his self honesty. When he has failed (either the past or present) he tells you so. Then he simply disects the reasons for it and offers a better way. That probably would have been a good title for this book, "A Better Way", as many of us could make simple changes to lead a happier, more productive life.
My favorite chapter is the last...a Commitment to Your Music....its powerful stuff....I'm commited to not dying with any of my music "still in me".
Great job Steve........let's hope your commitment is to keep doing this for years to come.
