Excellent and encouraging!
on May 2, 2013
My husband recommended this book because I've struggled over the years with low self-confidence and poor self-esteem. I resisted reading it for a while, thinking its approach sounded simple and formulaic--not intellectual enough to help or challenge me. From the opening words, however, I was compelled and inspired. The entire book maintains a strong drumbeat of action-oriented encouragement and advice.
Inspirational and wise, the book hits its stride by offering concrete, practical steps, as the subtitle promises, for "becoming unstoppable, irresistible and unafraid in every area of your life." Overstated? Perhaps a little. What I found, however, was enough inspiration plus "perspiration" in the book's action steps, virtues and values to make a measurable difference in my work life, personal relationships and overall achievements. I only wish I'd discovered this book when I was starting my career. But as Brian Tracy would say, it's never too late to grow, climb and make a difference.
Some say this is one of the author's best books. I've only looked at one other--the one on reinventing yourself. This book, by far, is the stronger choice. If you need a big boost of self-confidence, and long to learn the steps to acquire it, here's a great book to buy, study and keep. Great for sharing with others, too. Five-star rating!
