In addition to education and inspiration, the book is full of actionable tips on all barriers to persistence, including time management, goal-setting and being resilient after failures and blows to the ego. This book is great to read cover-to-cover, and then to dip into from time to time when you need a pep talk or a persistence boost.
This book was very enlightening to me and I am glad that I found it. It's information has certainly made me think about my own thoughts and what it is I choose to focus on. Hopefully with the help of this book I will be able to change my focus. Definitely worth the read.
Commercialism tries to keep and maintain our attention all the time. There are a lot of "quick" schemes to lose weight and to make money, but in reality living is not quick and we fail and feel bad about it. I see from this book too, it is ok to embrace the failures. I know too many people who are afraid to make moves because they wonder what will happen if they fail. Well, you won't die, so why not!?
Read this book and get back on track.
For anyone who has wondered if it was time to throw in the towel, this is the book for you. So often in our modern society we try something new, and if we don't get immediate results, we're on to the next project, self-help, get-rich-quick scheme. RL Adams explains with fascinating anecdotes just why sticking with something is worth the pain and doubt. Well written and full of inspiring stories and excellent advice, this was a great read.
If you don't lose 10 pounds in two days, it's off to the next fad diet etc. etc.
This book teaches us about the importance of rising above instant gratification and success, learning from our failures, and persisting until the end.
This is one of my new favorite motivational books. I tend to read motivating ones like this over and over whenever I feel like I need some inspiration.
I am thinking it would be a good idea to get the paperback as christmas gifts!
My favorite piece of wisdom from the book was "Don't be afraid of what others will think of you if you fail. Look at the big picture, get up, and try again.". Since everyone experiences setbacks in their lives at one time or another I just found this so powerful and freeing.
This book is not about following someone's program or system, but finding what you need inside yourself, building your inner strength, and using that to propel you forward in life.
I highly recommend this wonderful volume and am looking forward to future releases from the author.
