This book is an easy read and gets straight to the point. Whilst the content is an amalgamation of a lot of other books I have read, I have not read a book that delivers so much, in such a concise way, in a long time. The aim of the book is in essence to get the reader to think positively about their lives and what happens to them. It tries to get readers to "reframe" what happens to them and to see things in a positive way. It uses anecdotes to illustrate the most important points which make the process of change easier to understand. It gives the reader insights into how other people/personalities can impact upon their own happiness and so affect your own brilliance. It offers sound solutions and good advice on how to fix negativity. This is a very good and thoughtful book, which should help anyone who reads it to think and act in a more positive driven way.
For me the definitive book on mind dynamics is by Maxwell Maltz, Psychocybernetics. This book looks at how the mind works and how to reprogramme it for success. Maltz wrote his book in the 1960's and it is still the definitive guide to changing how a person views their world. The Art of Being Brilliant uses ideas present in Maltz's work, but makes how to use the ideas, much more clear and accessible. So if you want to change your life and develop a more optimistic mind frame, try reading this book as I am sure it will help.
Be Brilliant Every Day is the follow-up book to Andy Cope and Andy Whittaker to their previous outing The Art of Being Brilliant. The books like previous books offer a great introduction to positive psychology making sure that it can be understood by lots of people. However this book is more about tinkering your actions to have a more positive approach to life.
What Do You Like – Its Fun & Easy Going Style
The book that tries not to take itself too seriously and is written in fun and easy going style. The one thing I have always liked about the Brilliant Series books is the fact you can pick them up they provide a confidence or positivity boost. A simple book packed with lots of information
I've always admired the two Andys as it was Andy Cope who introduced me to the world of positive psychology after he ran a session at my work a few years back. The book works well as it less about positive thinking and more about why we act in certain ways
Give Me The Lowdown On One Concept From The Book – Not Self-improvement But Self-remembering
The book is not about teaching you something new but reminding you what the little voice in your head says to you. The book is less about self-improvement and more about self-remembering. It is about remembering that you are brilliant you just need “start being brilliant a bit more”.
Give Me One Quote From The Book – Call Me The Tinker Man
A quote that I like is about the Tinker Man. I like this quote as I am the kind of person that always tries and tinkers with the way I approach things to improve my process and workflow.
“Chelsea Football Club used to have a manager called Claudio Ranieri, affectionately known as ‘The Tinker Man’. He kept tweaking the team, looking for small improvements.
And I guess this book is similar. It’s for the tinkerers – the ones who dare to tweak and change things about themselves in the quest to be better. It’s also for those who’ve read other personal development books and found them too earnest, difficult, pious or simple. It’s for those who want to seize the moment, who are not afraid of hard work and who refuse to snuggle down on the wonderfully inviting bed of excuses”
What Do You Rate The Book?
Do not be put off as it is about positive psychology. Positive psychology both in your home life but also in your workplace has been proven to have a positive benefit. Not only to yourself and your team but also the company you work for. As previously said a simple book packed with lots of information.
I mention it because, knowing him personally, I can tell you that Andy is a truly inspirational guy. He wasn't born special and he wasn't born happy, and for a long time he lived the same kind of life that most people live, making the same kinds of mistakes that most people make, and feeling sorry for himself when things weren't going his way. Then, as a student of Psychology, he noticed something - there was a vast amount of published research into the causes of human unhappiness, but hardly any about what makes people happy! At this point, he decided to do something about it, changing his life for the better along the way.
And now you can make your life better too, by following the ideas in this down-to-earth and effective little book. You'll get carefully selected nuggets of wisdom, easy to follow examples, and straightforward exercises to get you thinking about your world and how you see it. But most of all you'll get six simple principles which you can use to help yourself become a happier person. I just can't recommend it highly enough.
