I am not Christian, but I am spiritual. Yet I was not offended or bothered by his religious overtones. After all, he is just stating openly what he calls the passion to his success. How his life and the lessons in his life changed when he did take God into his heart and follow God's path. I feel no reason for me to be closed minded to his writing as I truly respect the man and the good he has done. Maybe, just maybe I can be even more open minded to see if his path can also be my path.
I think an important point in the book for me was when he stated all the big important people that helped to form this country (Washington, Lincoln, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson...) and how these people and our country were built on religious standards and helped to create these great people. But as education is taught less and less from religious and moral influence (for 200 years the alphabet was taught with each letter referencing a biblical verse and moral standard) the country has produced less and less great leaders that compare to our founding fathers. So maybe Zig has a point about incorporating a better than good life with some religious/spiritual overtones.
Finally something that really stands out for me is realizing how I and so many others who are famous (no, I am not famous) would probably change their actions if they started looking at how they are moral role-models to so many young kids and they are helping to shape the future due to their actions. I know for me I am beginning to rethink what I do and how I do it and how I might be able to help shape the future leaders with my calling.
Well, just my two cents.
Zig came out with a new book and I ordered it immediately. What a good writer that not only shows you how to be positive, but helps roadmap your life. Better Than Good is a hit and I am glad I read it.
The 10 year rule was most poignant. At least for me because Zig showed that forward planning cannot be too far out. Go ahead, plan 10 years down the road.
In another speech I heard him say that he plans a book five years before he writes it. Excellent advice that shows on his great product.
