Format: Hardcover
Tracy's colorful quips and cheerleading helps people think in big, exciting terms. In the first three chapters, he quotes or cites himself, sales trainer Tom Hopkins, Mark McCormack, Victor Frankl (founder of logotherapy), Aristotle, Stanford University, billionaire H. L. Hunt, motivational speaker Zig Ziglar, Alexander Graham Bell, Eleanor Roosevelt, Buddy Hackett, Gary Zukav, James Allen, Edward Banfield, peak performer Charles Garfield, and Peter Drucker - an eclectic mix of anecdotes and attributions. But there is not much substance or structure. There are plenty of clichés like, "How do you eat an elephant?" Answer: "One bite at a time."
He is brief if a bit too cheerful. For example, in Chapter Six, "Decide your major definite purpose," his short paragraphs include headings like "Activate your Reticular Cortex," "Red Sports Car," "Achieve Financial Independence," "Keep Your Feet on the Ground," "Don't Sabotage Yourself," and "Be Willing to Pay the Price."
He recommends writing goals in the present tense but including a deadline, creating awkward conceptualizations of this sort: "I earn an average of $5,000 a month by December 31." You need to be persistent but flexible, full of dreams but also practical. Dependability is your most important trait but there are many others cited as important, key or critical: your ability to set goals and make plans, a sense of control, the practice of single handling, dedication, vision, visualization, e.g., "ability to visualize is perhaps the most important faculty that you possess.

I think most people underestimate the value of goals. Most people know about goals, but how many people actually have written goals?
In this book, Brian Tracy offers a powerful program on how to set and reach your goals and in record time.

This book shows you exactly how to set and achieve goals. I have read all of Brian Tracy's books and this is the best. This book compliments my favorite book of all time, Optimal Thinking: How to Be Your Best Self by Dr. Rosalene Glickman. As a result of Brian Tracy's endorsement, I picked up Optimal Thinking and now make the most of my thinking, my feelings, my business, may relationships and every situation. Thank you Mr. Tracy!

Format: Hardcover
I am very familiar with Brian Tracys' writings in the area of achievement, selling and success. I found this book compelling and not to be read quickly as I wanted to actually mull over every paragraph. I am a network marketer working from home and I found the right now sense of urgency focus of the book to be what I needed to to re-focus on achieving results through a process. This is not the type of book that you read and forget about days, weeks or months after reading it. This is the type of book that you will find the need to mark, highlight reflect and meditate on. Each chapter keeps you coming back for more. The information gives you a systematic manner to achieve results right away. It makes you want to employ the ideas and concepts in the book. My library is filled with great motivation and success material from many other leading authors. This book by far if I was forced to give up all others would be one that I would have to keep. Since getting less than half way through the book, I have already begun to really take action and do what Mr. Tracy says to do, and I am actually seeing positive results that I can measure.
