When I first read this book, I was VERY skeptical about it.

Others will find that these triggers help them stay in a positive state, which enables them to do more and thus achieve more.

First of all, there are a few books you will find on Amazon.Com that have similar titles to this one. Most of them are written by ex Navy SEALS, or martial arts masters. Daniel Teitelbaum's approach towards mental toughness has nothing in common with them.
Rather than shoveling a bunch of macho BS at you, and convincing you that you can use mental discipline in order to achieve some sort of Zen-type existence, Teitelbaum teaches a variety of training techniques that helps the reader to achieve future goals and improve their everyday lives.
The information is very scientifically sound, and the book itself is easy to read. It reads more like a training manual than anything else. Don't expect to read through this in one sitting, as the author will have you doing exercises every couple of pages. This is definitely not a book that you can rush through.
Teitelbaum not only does a thorough job of teaching each technique, but also teaches you WHY each technique works. Because these techniques rely a lot on "personal faith", knowing why they work is probably just as important as the techniques themselves.
Both the book and Teitelbaum's speaking engagements tend to lean towards teaching these techniques to businesspeople, in order to help them in their careers. However, the techniques work just as well (if not better) for personal goals as well.
The book is well-written, full of useful information, and the price is a bargain. I'd definitely recommend it over any of the other "mental toughness" books you will find.

When I first read this book, I was VERY skeptical about it. But after reading this book, it helped me a LOT. This book was incredibly easy to understand, and I'm only a High School student(Sophomore). So if I can understand this, I don't get how some of those other reviewers can't... One of the very first things this book has taught me was how to get over my negative voice, which would always discourage me from doing anything, saying things like "you can't do this" or "come on, this doesn't sound reasonable. There's no way this could work." And so on.(the book gave this a name "Stanley"). Stanley can be avoided in ANY case. I'm sure everyone knows top athletes who are constantly told a million times every day that they "can't do it" or "they're bad at this," etc. There's no way that they can escape the press or criticism throwing stuff at them, but they can still cope with it, dismiss it, and move on. Stanley was one of the major factors that slowed me down in my studies. This book not only taught me about "Stanley," but also how to get extremely motivated into doing whatever I had to do. With the help of this book, my grades went straight up from high C's to high A's.

But to get the most out of this book, you CANNOT be lazy and expect it to work. That will never work out in life. So for those reviews who said trash about this book, they were either:
a.) not getting the concept-
b.) too lazy to get up and actually DO the things that the book taught them-
or:
c.) "Stanley" is apparently the voice that's commanding them.

Format: Paperback
I was amazed that someone would give a negative review to a book because they didn't like the cover. Yet, they would read books by Navy Seals. Well, I hope negative reviewer actually read the book by the Navy Seals. They may actually find out the lessons are the same, only the examples are different. It's like a child who says "I don't like that" when they have never actually tried it before. Certainly not a review I would take seriously.
Now, on to Daniel's book.
Daniel has a gift. He approaches the reader by using little exercises to open us up to his concepts. Step by step, the reader will find excitement growing. What may have been declared as wishes (goals without action) are now gathering intense meaning and support. The goals are becoming more exciting, more desireable. Napoleon Hill speaks of a "white hot, intense desire". Well, Daniel teaches us, by leading us, how we can take that goal or desire and turn it white hot.
If you have had trouble reaching your goals and achieveing the life you really wantthen this book is certainly worth reading.
It contains practicle advice and examples. A great book to add to your success library. Just open it and read it, and do the exercises. It's working for me.

For many years I have been unable to discipline myself to take consistant, positive action in the direction of my goals. I read dozens of books with little result. In "The Ultimate Guide to Mental Toughness" Daniel Teitelbaum gives step by step instructions on how to present your dreams to your mind so that you automatically become motivated on a daily basis. It's nothing short of incredible. I have already come a long way to achieving my life's ambitions. I couldn't recommend the book highly enough.

26 of 30 people found the following review helpful By A. McKenna on November 24, 2003
Format: Paperback
Although I do agree this book has un-catchy cover; the contents are far beyond expectations. The cover should read more like "How to Super-Charge your Goals", because that is exactly what this book shows you to do. Teitelbaum shows you exactly how to "Burn-in" your major goals to have them effectively reach your subconscious mind and create belief in your own abilities to achieve them.
Many self-help books indicate that you need to have a burning desire to achieve your goals; but don't really explain step by step how this is achieved. Teitelbaum's book reveals the secrets of mental training that world-class athletes have used for years to Laserfocus their brains on the outcome. The book is easy to read and packed with dozens of different techniques to keep you busy for weeks practicing them.
This book I believe is the missing link (The catalyst) to implement any other success program. It can be used from any goal that motivates you. Even if the goal does not motivate you, the techniques in this book show you step by step how to make the end result so sweet to your brain, that it is inevitable that you will reach your outcome.
This book is the cornerstone for anyone who is truly serious about achieving the end result.
