BOOK

It has changed my life!!! I love this book. It is a message of hope with a specific problem and solution. Check Terry’s website to see if he will be speaking in your town. Seeing him tell his story just took my breath away. Daniel S.

Daniel SA Message of Hope

Reading your book rejuvenated me in ways I can’t even express. your message, “The Hell I Can’t!” resonates — and it is epic. Thank you for voicing it — there are those who internalize it in ways you probably can’t imagine. I hope you never quit sharing.

Rand Nix

Terry’s book The Hell I Can’t! is an amazing addition to his oral presentation. It tells the story of his recovery from years of illness and treatment, and is an amazing inspiration to anyone with a chronic disease. I completely endorse Terry’s work and urge everyone to experience his presence.

Rev. Bill Worth

One young man, facing insurmountable odds, has the courage to cling to hope and the possibility that he can create a miracle when everyone else has given up. As you read this book, you are there with Terry fighting for your own dreams as he fights for his.

Terry’s battle for his health has ramifications in all areas of life
This book is revolutionary. Terry’s battle for his health has ramifications in all areas of life. His message challenges our limiting beliefs about God, life and religion. It’s not a book for the conformist, the meek or anyone with a weak-stomach. This is a life-changing book. I’ve already given the book to a friend and I’m ordering another!

Kathleen KBattle for Health

Terry McBride’s story is not an “airy-fairy’, `feel-good’ romp through some instantaneous and painless miracle of recovery. McBride endured a cumulative total of over 280 days in hospitals and around 30 surgeries spaced over several years. He doesn’t spare his image or his dignity as he frankly describes, often in gritty detail (yet, somehow, not losing his delightful sense of humor), the day-to-day pain and indignities, his many low times, his times of doubt, of anger and rage, of self-pity, hopelessness, terror and depression — and finally his emergence on the other side.
Rather than just telling the story, he relates his emotional, physical and spiritual journey through seemingly impossible times and, painstaking-step-by-painstaking-step, how he eventually emerged as the completely healthy, robust and very vibrant individual he is today.
Just relating the story of his illness could be a book in itself, but McBride goes much further. While he was sick he didn’t just `lay there’. He worked extremely hard to get well, even when the doctors had given up hope. In the book he relates exactly what he did – emotionally, mentally, spiritually and physically – to create perfect health.
The latter part of The Hell I Can’t goes to the very heart of what reality is, why we have the life we have right now, and how to create the life we want. I must confess to being a bit of a “personal improvement junkie” but, since reading this book, I am sorely tempted to give away almost my entire private library of self-improvement books. I no longer “need” them. As a story of the triumph of the human spirit over a hopeless situation. The latter part of the book is also a road map for creating new physical, emotional and spiritual realities, and also how to create the life of one’s dreams.
The Hell I Can’t is the story of one man taking responsibility for his life and his recovery, and his journey back to perfect health — and, step-by-step, how he did it. Tom in Charlotte –
Diagnosed with a serious health challenge
A friend gave me this book after I was diagnosed with a serious health challenge. It sat for weeks as I finished other books, then I started it and put it down several times because I found it painful to read about Terry’s struggles. I really wanted to finish the book and I’m so glad I did! I am now motivated to work even harder (maybe smarter is the word!) on using my mind to create the results I want in my life! I plan to buy his audio program to learn more about applying what he teaches and what he did to overcome a so-called incurable disease. If you or anyone you know have a medical challenge or any other that you want to make headway with, read this book. -Rachel M.

Rachel MNot an “airy-fairy’, `feel-good’ romp

I purchased your book after your talk at Unity Community Church in Laguna Hills CA. You autographed it for my friend Todd who had broken both heels in a skiing accident. He was pieced together with bolts and screws and told amputation had been an option, and that he may not regain the ability to walk again. Todd had plans to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with 10 other adventurers. After 6 months of determination to make the climb….he did in July 2006 against all advice he received from his doctors. His feet were numb and his legs and body were in pain. But with commitment and determination, Todd started the trek. After six days and nights of freezing weather, the final assault on the mountain was at 1:00 AM. All climbers wearing coal miner’s helmets to light the path over frozen scree. Todd said “The Hell I Can’t!” all the way to the top! As you can imagine it was a very emotional triumph to stand at the top of the mountain that the natives named Kilimanjaro, which means “Impossible to climb”! I give thanks to God that I met you and could get your inspiring book to Todd.

Pepper J. Laguna Hills, CAClimb your mountain

I then got your book from Amazon, and was spellbound for the 2 days it took me to read it. Your medical circumstances were amazingly horrific, and your suffering was at least equal to mine, so that was the first thing about you that I respected. But then, the second half of the book!!! Every SINGLE doubt, questioning, reasoning, analyzing, I could TOTALLY understand, because I have been through every single one of your thought pathways (except about two). I have now re-read the whole thing, and the first underlining was in blue; the second is in red, as I’m paring down to just the most essential passages for my quick reviews through the book.
I can’t tell you in a reasonable-length email how much I’ve advanced in my self-healing through you, your experience, and your generosity of spirit — the book is an awesome work! The remembering, the meticulous rendering of your self-questioning, are, in themselves, awesome! These are the things I’ve been seeking in a “healer,” and could never find–the self-examination, the learning in one’s soul that are the real factors that enable healing. (The integration into one’s self.) You told me, over, and over, what you were “feeling”! This is what I needed to know– not just somebody saying “visualize yourself whole!”
Thank you SO MUCH, Terry! With utmost respect and gratitude.

MJ in BostonYour medical circumstances were amazingly horrific

I wish I could afford to by a couple hundred copies of this book and give it away to every person I know! For me, his struggle to figure out what he believed in and how to make it all work for him are very real! I have asked many of the questions he asks and have bounced between conviction and angry depression much as he describes. This book was a total inspiration to me because his journey is soooooo real and his outcome so positive. Unlike so many people who write of their theories just spouting a lot of seemingly brilliant ideals with no instruction for application, Terry McBride describes his process with admirable honesty! I highly recommend this book for anyone who doesn’t think they have it all figured out, who struggles in life in any way!

Book Reviewer I LOVE this book!

Dear Terry, I learned of your book (and read it before I heard you speak), and saw you speak, at The Soul-Esteem Center in St. Louis with Phyllis Clay-Sparks back in 2006. On August 9, 2011, my children’s dad had a major motorcycle accident. He’s now in a wheelchair, and he’s facing neurological issues that are still undiagnosed, even thought this Thursday, it will have been 6 months ago since the accident.
I’ve become his primary caregiver, and I just wanted to tell you that this past weekend, I began reading your book to him. I got so much out of it in 2006, even without a physical challenge, and now the words I highlighted, underscored, wrote asterisks and exclamation points, and circled, have even more meaning.
I just wanted to thank you for writing so candidly. Though Kurt doesn’t really talk about what he’s going through and feeling, he keeps telling me that he really connects to what you’re saying in your book. Tomorrow morning we’ll begin on Chapter 20: Choice of Destination.
Today, during his Home Health Care Physical Therapy, he really worked harder than I’ve seen since he was in the Rehabilitation Hospital. As I read to Kurt, I watch him nod, sometimes tears form in his eyes, sometimes he just stares at me hanging on to your next words.
It’s been a long day–but I didn’t want to end the day without telling you how much I’m grateful that I get to share your experience with Kurt… He is relating so much, and I’m so glad you wrote your book the way you did…. The first half of the book gave Kurt the opportunity to recognize how he’s feeling before you started to show him the way to 100% recovery.

KathyBeginning to Believe

Thank You for the window into your life. Sometimes life is a little over the top for yourself and then someone says, writes, or does something that brings all the events back into line. Your struggles are life stopping, life developing, and life changing for you and now I am sure for many more including myself… I am sure you know you are remarkable and give hope and understanding to those who read and truly understand your gift to them.
Your book has opened up a truly new avenue for me. I have had many of the thoughts in your book swirling around since a surgery I had that changed my life. I believe that a 3 day class with you would be the leap I would need over this wall of problems. But since I am on a low fixed income I just feel fortunate to have heard you, buy your book, you signed for me, and now can use it for a guideline and model to let my body know that this invasion it suffered is alright we will heal and go to the health we deserve and the pain free life I envision. Thank you so much for the information and the time and energy you used to write down the thoughts you have in a useable and valuable way.

Susan NeilYou are remarkable and give hope and understanding

Terry, my 97 (and a half!) year old mother, Suzanne, whom you sat next to at the Center for Spiritual Living Redondo Beach the last time you spoke there (June 2012), passed away peacefully last month. I want you to know that she was vibrant, totally lucid, and in great spirits until her last breath. Her favorite book was The Hell I Can’t, and she asked me to read excerpts every day during the 6 days it took Mom to transition. .
Isn’t it amazing that you had such an impact on my mom in just one short hour? Your story gave her the courage to transition into the spiritual plain with joy and peace. I can’t thank you enough. I don’t know if you remember her. She was the former college professor who spoke 7 languages and stood at a mere 4’7″ tall
Thanks so much!

Claudia KrikorianPassed away peacefully last month

Terry — Your book is one of the most fascinating I have ever read. I read it in one weekend, then typed all the items I highlighted into six pages of notes. I then wrote to my very sick father in Virginia and told him about you and threw in some of your quotes. I would give anything if he would even consider the possibility of feeling better from his \”incurable\” disease of aplastic anemia. Thank you for your work and for your spirit. If you\’re ever in Colorado, coffee or dinner is on me as a thank-you!

Sandy HartmanI then wrote to my very sick father

I live in Boston, and am a 52-year-old woman. I’ve had a severe chronic (mysterious) upset for many years.
I heard your talk to Unity Hawaii on a podcast about a month ago, and was so awed. I could tell that your experience was authentic– so VERY, VERY different from most of the gurus nowadays who have LOTS of good advice but their words don’t ring true all the way through. i.e., they’re just a lot of “good suggestions,” and you can tell they haven’t lived it, and they don’t really know “how” to do it. They are, for the most part, good people, but of no help to me; they haven’t lived it, with all the concomitant failures, equivocations, doubts, and “not doing enoughs.”
I then got your book from Amazon, and was spellbound for the 2 days it took me to read it. Your medical circumstances were amazingly horrific, and your suffering was at least equal to mine, so that was the first thing about you that I respected. But then, the second half of the book!!! Every SINGLE doubt, questioning, reasoning, analyzing, I could TOTALLY understand, because I have been through every single one of your thought pathways (except about two).

EVERYBODY WINS PROGRAM

I’m on day 4 of your Everybody Wins program and my world grows larger

and promises more hope than I’ve ever known was possible. … just know that you do touch lives — in ways those lives could never have imagined. …and I just wanted to let you know that you are such a powerful voice for those of us who struggle under such seemingly, all too powerful voices around us telling us what we can’t be — what we can never hope for

I’ve lost 23 pounds and my kitchen is cleaner than ever

because I play “you” while I’m cleaning. And I figured out if I stick my daily affirmations in my wallet in my driver’s license window I see them a lot. HUGE HUGS!

– Marsanne Golsby

Finally, I am living the life I’ve always wanted to live

Finally, I am living the life I’ve always wanted to live, without any fear of losing it, that before, somehow, deep down inside me, I thought would be impossible to obtain. And now I know that the sky is the limit!

Terry has the wonderful ability to relate to where people are in the moment 

Terry McBride is a blessing! A dynamic speaker, Terry has the wonderful ability to relate to where people are in the moment. Terry has demonstrated the results of his teachings and gives everyone an understanding that “nothing is impossible”.

I realized I was creating the life I always wanted

I got the program so I’d have a support system and specific tools to help me focus on getting what I truly wanted. And, it really worked!  Using Everybody Wins took only minutes a day. Within a short time, I witnessed wonderful changes in my life. I was more on track, and I was having more fun. As I completed the training, I realized I was creating the life I always wanted. And I’m excited to go through it again because, through using this program, I will continue applying choice to my new dreams.

I could die in 3 years and there was nothing the medical community could offer

Four months ago I was given a catastrophic diagnosis – where I could die in 3 years and there was nothing the medical community could offer. A friend directed me to Terry’s book and his Everybody Wins program. His book gave me hope and his coaching program has been life changing, allowing me to transform, create and live my life with joy. My condition is reversing and the medical establishment is surprised.

The program is very user friendly – every week for 9 weeks you download a new lesson. One of the first things I began to learn was to be conscious of my incessant chatter and how negative it was. I realized the experiences, judgments and stories I created from them are lies and are not ME. Through simply following directions and using Terry’s program, I learned how to finally love myself.

During the week you listen to the lesson every day –while exercising, getting ready, commuting… whatever works for you. The lessons build on each other beautifully. Oftentimes, I would listen to the lesson multiple times in a day.

As I listened to the program with spaced repetition. I started to understand things that I had struggled with for years. The program includes great structure of how to control your life. You learn to listen to yourself and become your own teacher. I finished the nine weeks and I continue listen to at least one lesson every day. I find them inspiring and I’m still discovering greater awareness when I listen to them.

Even though I did this to address a health issue, this program has helped me make changes in all areas of my life.

~ JoAnn, North Dakota

I have my children using “the tools” as well. Thanks Terry!

The price for his system is far less than the rewards that can be attained if one is ready to do the minimal work involved on a consistent basis. I have my children using “the tools” as well. Thanks Terry!

What is truly important

After more than a year, Terry’s “Everybody Wins; Experiencing Life As A Joyous Adventure” increasingly; has My Full Attention.    And My Life has Changed Dramatically! It has not only helped me to Understand What It Is That Is Truly Important To Me, it has helped me to Draw These Wonderful Things Into My Life!

(The love of my ideally perfect woman, a wonderful home, friends on a level of friendship I’ve never known, and work that I love.)

Finally, I am living the life I’ve always wanted to live, without any fear of losing it, that before, somehow, deep down inside me, I thought would be impossible to obtain.

And now I know that the sky is the limit!

I am helping others with these timeless principles also, just because that is Who I Am.

Thank you so very much Mr. McBride, I pray that The Good Lord Will Bless you Profusely!

I read, study, and apply the Spiritual Truths in Your Awesome Program Daily.

Given me the confidence to really look within

I have tried a lot of “programs” and read a lot of self-help books with prescribed steps and recipes for success. None of which has given me the confidence to really look “within” for the answers in a systematic and reproducible approach like the “Everybody Wins” program.

At the end of the 9 weeks with Terry as my guide, I used the tools of goal setting, affirmation and visualization to get what I wanted. I tripled my income with a new business working fewer hours with in 3 months of completing the course. My marriage has dramatically improved and we have fun like were newlyweds. I was able to lose some 20 pounds while lowering my cholesterol and blood pressure.

Life is now really fun because Terry gave me the treasure map to create any thing I want to experience. Every time I am able to pull something off of my wants list, I get fired up to get the next thing. Where the movie ‘The Secret’ leaves off on the basic steps for demonstration and manifestation, Terry makes the ‘Secret’ known!

Every section of ‘EVERYBODY WINS’ stands on its own

I was pleased to find that every section of ‘EVERYBODY WINS’ stands on its own. I look forward to future uses of refreshment and self-awareness.

Your words have empowered me

The ideas you have expressed through your Everybody Wins Program have pulled together a great deal of life’s learning into a concrete, usable plan that is working magic in my life; like the icing on that cake. Your words have empowered me. My Gratitude, my thanks, I send you blessings.

Reverend Sonja Contois

Effortless and the results just flow

‘EVERYBODY WINS’ is fantastic! Unlike many programs that become difficult to stay with, ‘EVERYBODY WINS’ is virtually effortless and the results just flow.”

Realized I was creating the life I always wanted

Working with Terry on his book has changed how I view myself and how I approach living. And through having the Everybody Wins program as a resource that I can use again and again to remind and assist me to use what I know, I too see my life as a joyous adventure.

Doubled my business

Terry, thank you for your courage and your sharing of the process in Everybody Wins.

Since starting your program I have saved my business, doubled my sales production and been promoted to the next level in the company, which I had been trying to accomplish for over two years. I am so grateful for the insights to myself and the unlimited possibilities I see for me through using the program.

I knew the “Everybody Wins” program was my next step

After attending an outstanding workshop that Terry conducted, I knew the “Everybody Wins” program was my next step. Now that I have completed the program I can honestly say that it has given me even more than I had hoped. I now have tools that I use daily to create a life filled with joy and adventure while loving who and what I am right now. Thank you Terry for sharing your experience.

Thanks again for bringing the Spiritual Life Center’s congregation to its feet.

I have never witnessed such a spontaneous and enthusiastic outpouring of love and appreciation for a speaker and workshop presenter. Your enthusiasm, humor and practical tools for growth continue to draw our largest audiences for workshops. I have had the pleasure of knowing you and observing your work for almost 25 years now and you just keep getting better. Bless you for blessing all of us with practical ways to deepen our faith and improve our experience of life.

Richest Blessings,

- Rev. Michael T. Moran – Spiritual Life Center, Sacramento, CA

Terry McBride is one of my favorite presenters.

He is professional and easy to work with. One of the things I appreciate about Terry is his promotion of your ministry. He encourages those attending to get involved and participate in the ministry. He’ll connect with you to understand what your ministry is focused on and developing. Most presenters promote their own stuff, not giving any thought to supporting your center. Terry is refreshingly different in this way – he “gets it”– he wants your ministry to prosper and succeed. A dynamic, powerful speaker and teacher, Terry’s strength is his conviction and deep absolute faith. He demonstrates the power of creative thought and how to use it to create the life you want. Those who experience Terry and his life-transforming and healing message will find their lives altered for the better! My advice – schedule him. You’ll be glad you did.

– Rev. Deidre Ashmore, Coeur d’Alene Unity

Terry does an outstanding job teaching Principle!

As a minister who occasionally needs a vacation, Terry fits in perfectly. He is low maintenance, on time, prepared and easy to work with. He doesn’t spend his time at the lectern promoting his workshop but teaches Principle and does so in a dynamic and energetic way that will move your congregation. While I was a little apprehensive at first about a Sunday/Monday evening workshop — it ended up being one of the most attended sessions we’ve had in over 3 years. You can’t go wrong with Terry. Blessings to you, Terry, and we’ll have you back!

In Truth,

- Rev. Joe Hooper, Palm Desert Center for Spiritual Living

Going to your website however seems to kick my butt in the direction of reminding me who I am and what I’m wanting. I heard you speak last Sunday night In Corte Madera…and I’m so glad I did. It was a really good evening. I know the NLP process that you shared was powerful but my fears have come up again, albeit after a few days. know I’m here to thrive and it is time to own that. I do have the power, and I know that too. I am the Creator, and I need to have the life I envision for myself. Thank you for the reminders that are heading me in the right direction. I so appreciate your work and your example. You leave me no excuses!

Blessings and gratitude,

- Dianne Sherman

Your “The Joy and Wonder of Choice” workshop garnered ‘excellent’ reviews from those who attended.

As you know, the room was packed as a direct result of your dynamic message at our Sunday services. Thank you for sharing in such a helpful way, your practical, practicable suggestions on creating desired results and fulfilling life’s vision. Thank you, too, for sharing your positive energy and enthusiasm as you share your own life experiences. You truly walk your talk and set a remarkable example.

Blessings of love, peace and joy,

Rev. Carol Peterson – Minister of Events and Publications, Spiritual Life Center

You are a dynamic speaker and wonderful story teller. 

You have a wonderful way of weaving your teaching points with your story making it easy for the audience to learn as well as relate to you.  You referenced some of my recent challenges, like too many different teachers with contradictory points of view.  You also provided actionable steps that I plan to incorporation into my plan of action right away.  Thanks for the entertaining learning experience!

Best regards,

Your story and message made a huge impact on me.
