Praise for Get Smart!

"Brian's excellent work over the past forty years speaks for itself. Get Smart! will show you how he has earned millions of dollars and created a loyal clientele that spans the globe. Be smart...invest in two copies and give one to a friend."
—Bob Proctor, world-renowned speaker and mentor, author of The ABCs of Success, and co-author of The Art of Living
 
“An amazing book with the simple reminder that when we look for good, good things happen. Brian, you've done it again.”
Greg S. Reid, author of Stickability and coauthor of Thoughts Are Things
 
“I have learned to listen when Brian Tracy talks and I have learned to follow Brian’s advice when he speaks. Get Smart is the right title because following the information Brian gives the reader is exactly what is needed to Get Smart. I highly recommend this book, regardless of where you are on your success journey.  It will not only help you get there, but you will get there faster.”
 —Don M. Green, Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation

By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on March 16, 2016
Format: Hardcover
And here's the complete observation by T.S. Eliot: "We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time."

In the Introduction, Brian Tracy points out that – on average – people use only 2% of their mental ability. I am among those who question that estimate as being too low but, whatever the percentage is, human mental ability tends to be underdeveloped and thus underutilized. “The natural tendency for most people is to slip into a comfort zone of easy thinking and decision-making based on old, false or incomplete thinking. Many people use far less of their mental potential because they become lazy in their thinking, jump to simple conclusions, assume causation when two events occur close together, and do what they’ve always done rather than to challenge the ideas [especially assumptions] or consider entirely different approaches. Years of television watching, failure to read, learn, and grow, non-stop electronic interruptions (email, social media, messaging and phone calls) make a person incapable of functioning fast and efficiently.”

Tracy then adds, “Your mind is like a muscle. To develop it so that it functions at a higher level, you must place demands on it, the same as lifting weights for muscle building. Get Smart shows the reader a series of simple, practical, powerful ways of questioning and examining a situation to assure the best choices and decisions. By challenging the reader to think with greater clarity, the reader challenges his/her mind and makes it stronger and more resilient — like a muscle subject to vigorous physical exercise.

Brian Tracy writes another winner. He talks about developing good habits and following through with it. Successful people have good habits, whereas unsuccessful people have bad or no habits at all. I have read many of his books and love his work.

Unfortunately it is a rehash of Brian Tracy's other books. Very little new information here. I suppose it is easy to write a book if you just rearrange the text from previous ones.

Another great book by Brian Tracy. I had a hard time putting it down, finishing in less than 48 hours. There is a lot of great advice on how to develop wealthier habits.

This book is not short on tips and suggestions about how we could improve ourselves. A key conclusion is that most of the factors that can lead to success are things that are within our control.
