A Waste Of Time,
This review is from: Think and Grow Rich (Mass Market Paperback)
This Book Was A Waste Of Time. The guy babbles on about a "secret" that he says he will not name, but instead will give you a bunch of stories of people using the "secret" to succeed. The "secret" this book is based on is "determination" and truely believing you can acomplish something. so if you've ever read the definition of determination in a dictionary, you can skip reading this book.
also, I feel this poem sums up what the book is trying to say, way better than the whole book:
C. W. Longenecker
If you think you are beaten, you are,
If you think you dare not, you don't.
If you like to win, but you think you can't,
It is almost certain you won't.
If you think you'll lose, you're lost,
For out in the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow's will.
It's all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are,
You've got to think high to rise,
You've got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life's battles don't always go
To the stronger or faster man.
But soon or late the man who wins,
Is the man who thinks he can.
