Book Description

If you knew you couldn’t fail, what is the greatest thing you would dare to dream? Is the job you now have the one you’ve always wanted? Do you work with the kind of people you’d like to work with? As personal success expert Brian Tracy can attest, it’s not until you deal with the dissatisfactions of the present that you can move onward and upward to create the wonderful future that is possible for you. And it is possible.

In Reinvention, Brian Tracy reveals how every one of us is engineered for success, and with the right focus, can remake ourselves and put an end to the chronic stress, unhappiness, and dissatisfaction we might feel in our careers and lives. This unique, life-altering book gives readers an interactive series of exercises they can use to focus on what they really want for themselves, and:

take control of their careers • turn unexpected shakeups and turbulence into positive occasions for growth • dramatically improve their earning ability • develop the self-confidence to take the kind of risks that lead to rapid advancement • decide on and get the job they really want • set clear goals for their lives • write resumes that get results • determine their own salary range

We live in a time of rapid change...but also of unprecedented opportunity. This book supplies readers with a proven system they can use to turn their greatest dreams into reality!

47 of 49 people found the following review helpful By Robert Morris HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on January 22, 2009
Format: Hardcover
I have read and reviewed most of Brian Tracy's previously published books and hold him high regard because he has helped so many people to overcome the barriers to their personal as well as professional development, especially when many (if not most) of the limits are self-imposed. Tracy agrees with what Henry Ford observed long ago: "Whether you think you can or think you can't, you're right." When climbing mountains, ladders, whatever, attitude usually does determine altitude. But he also realizes that many people feel overwhelmed by their circumstances, have no self-confidence, and need help in the form of sound, practical, step-by-step advice. Tracy positions himself as a counselor, not as a cheerleader. In this book, he shares his thoughts about a process of reinvention that can enable almost anyone to achieve whatever goals they may have.

In Chapter Two, the reader is asked to begin a series of exercises (many of which are completed within the book) and continue until the last chapter. Tracy realizes that, more often than not, "haste makes waste" and certainly advises against impulsive behavior, especially when making decisions, but he does urge his reader to "move fast when an opportunity or need presents itself. Pick up the pace. Take action of some kind. Get on it with it!" Completion of the various exercises helps to expedite the process of personal reinvention while reinforcing Tracy's key points. I also recommend use of a notebook or journal in which to record thoughts and feelings, express concerns, document key developments, etc. Personal reinvention consists of both a journey and destination. Those embarked on that process should be results-driven.

Given the massive turmoil in the economy, millions of job losses and business failures everywhere, Brian Tracy's latest book, "Reinvention" is a perfect solution to help all of us develop a new path forward.

This book is ideal for anyone who's facing difficult changes right now, or wishes to improve and "re-engineer" their life. I've been a longtime Brian Tracy fan, he's one of the few core people who's had a dramatic impact on my life, and this book adds to the knowledge you can get from studying Brian Tracy's winning approach.

Specifically, what's new and different about "Reinvention", and why I recommend it so highly, is:

+ It has a very methodical, proven step-by-step process you can use to "take stock" of where you're at, and how to map out a plan for actions to be taken moving forward.

+ Interactive activities, eg self-check lists and inventories designed to help you highlight what you're best at, how to benefit from it, and what personal strategic direction you want to move forward with.

+ For those seeking jobs, Brian's put together an entire chapter on how to get the perfect job you want, including new tips that are action-oriented and focused for results.

+ Chapter 6, my favorite, is entitled "How Do You Get Ahead?", and contains tons of new tactics that Brian hasn't shared anywhere else yet (like how to "Become Profit-Oriented in Your Business", for example).

+ Tactics for helping you reinvent yourself and put together a plan that will motivate you to "give yourself the benefit of the doubt", during tough times, to find out what direction you want to head in next, and to get started moving in a positive, specific action-oriented manner forward.

I thought this book would be about reinventing your life. In fact, it's how to get a better job and progress in your career. It suggests working longer hours and working harder. That's not my idea of making the best of my life. I've already improved my life by working less for more money. If you're look for a book about working hard, then this may be for you. If you're looking for a book about reinventing your life, then no point getting this, unless your idea of reinvention is work, work, work. What about, health, exercise, family, leisure?

For those who have never read this genre before, this book is sure to be helpful. For anyone familiar with self-help, self-actualization, organizational and personal psychology books, you won't find anything new here.

Brian Tracy borrows from everyone who has gone before, and never manages to pull it all together into a concise actionable package. I found myself envisioning an endless strategic planning PowerPoint presentation that the consultant couldn't reduce to an effective executive summary.

You simply cannot go wrong buying any of Brian Tracy's works. Whether it be books, Cd's, DVD's, audio programs or training in any form, he is an acknowledged master who has "been there and done that." From a nobody with nothing, to a multi, multi-millionaire, he teaches you what really works, not just theory or conjecture as so many others do. He has changed more lives for the better than you can possibly imagine. I know...he changed mine!

"Reinvention" by Brian Tracy is another great book by a great author. It is a book for people who want to make a change in their lives and basically "Reinvent" themselves. I have read a lot of Brian Tracy books and there is a lot of material in this book that is contained in his other books. However, there is new information too, or at least information that is new to me. If your life is in a period of transition, this may be a very helpful book. The average person will work at several jobs or careers during their life. The days of settling into one job for life are largely over. Often people reach their 50's or 60's and want to completely start over in another job or career. This book helps this type of person do that.

He starts out with discussing transition and how you are a unique, remarkable person with unique talents and abilities. Then he gets into just who you are, and what do you really want in a job or career and in your life. There is lots of advice on how to get ahead on a job, and lots of questions and written exercises to help you figure all of this out. There is good information on goal setting and time management.

I think I liked doing the written exercises the best. It helped me to zero in on just exactly what I want and where I want to go and it helped to clarify my focus and view of how I see myself. If you are looking to reinvent yourself, this is a good book to read. -- Valerie Lull, Author, Ten Healthy Teas
