This book was a lot better than I thought it would be—it’s a combination of a little bit of everything. I spotted many different success philosophies that mirrored other popular programs, such as Franklin-Covey, Bucket Fillers, and The Secret. I even spotted some similarities from the book THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN (great book, if you haven’t already read it). This book has many bits of motivation that will offer everyone at least something new and refreshing.
Some of the vital take-aways for me include:
- Don’t play the victim; we are responsible for how we handle the situation.
- Write out your goals.
- Integrity—you either have it, or you don’t. It’s not part-time.
- Read every day.
- Winners keep winning.
- The greatest mistake is the fear of making a mistake.
- You reap what you sow.
- How can I best use my energy now?
There is much more included in this book. It is good to either read all at once, or to read in dedicated sessions over a period of time. This is easily one of the better self-help or personal success books I have read.
