Scumaci includes principles on how to identify and overcome self-limiting beliefs, attitudes and behavors. She provides keys to exchanging anxiety for anticipation, and how to be opptimitic in the midst of difficult circumstances.
The combination of font choice, the white space on each page, and descriptive subject headings are inviting and help the reader assimilate the narrative for immediate and long range retention as well as for later review. The book is well organized and follows a natural progression in the presentation of material. Each chapter contains valuable information and follows a consistent format with a good balance of: charts, illustrations, or bulleted lists. I found the journaling exercises which included suggested questions to consider triggering mind stimulating entries.
Dondi packs the book with stories of real live people to illustrate important application for successful personal, career, or corporate business growth. The chapter discussing mentoring was of special significance to me. The concept, results and rewards offer potential promise of personal gratification in establishing relationships and accomplishing goals.
The "reflections" at the end of each of the three sections of the book help the reader internalize the principles presented in the previous chapters. The reflections are made up of summary statements which highlight: Part I, Preparing the Ground: Part II, Planting Seeds of Expectancy; and Part III,
Producing - Releasing the Potential within You.
