If you are looking to do something different with your life and get some motivation and direction then I think this little volume will be useful to you. If you just read a bunch of success type books and are looking for something new you probably won't find it here.
This book is truly the accomplishment of Patrick Bet-David, who struggled with many obstacles in his life but accomplished the impossible. A powerful read packed with inspiring quotes. It is also filled with humor, and wonderful advice to get anyone up and moving and becoming all they can be. I recommend this book to people of all ages and backgrounds. It is uplifting and enlightening. I am glad I read it and you will be too.
With themes like this, it would be easy to fall into trite encouragements and oft-repeated platitudes, but the author manages to deliver more. The book is divided into "25 Laws for Doing the Impossible" and while some of the short chapters cover well-tread ground, there are nuggets throughout - and a few unexpected laughs. Bet-David has a love affair with sports and American heroes, and his citations and examples make for an entertaining read. Chapters like "Protect your credibility score" and "Embrace your frustrations" give solid advice in a very how-to context. The book even gives you space to write your own thoughts IN the book so that it serves as a practical workbook, which of course doesn't help if you read the Kindle version.
There are many business books out there and "Doing the Impossible" manages to be a good intellectual exercise as well as a reminder of solid life-lessons.
I have never met a negative successful person. Why do you think people are negative? Does it make us feel better? Does it accomplish more? Could it just be negative people are addicted to attention and that is the only way they know to get it? What ever it may be, here is what I have personally discovered through out my business career: The more I can relate my sports background to my business, I will be successful. Being an athlete (soccer player), I wanted to be as good as Pele. So what did I do? I bought Pele training tapes, training equipment, and anything that would be a useful training tool. Then, I went and watched the videos. After I watched the videos, I went out onto the field and started following the training program. In the beginning I wasn't a great player. I couldn't juggle. I couldn't stop the ball on a dime. I couldn't place the ball where I wanted to go. There were a lot of things that I couldn't do in the beginning. But, after years (not days, weeks or months), of consistent training I eventually developed the skill to become a great soccer player. How does this relate to business?Read more ›
