"Every moment you spend lost in fantasy, not taking action, you abdicate your power. Fantasy is then used by ego to discount your present significance and to deny your unique gifts that are waiting to be recognized and put into expression now."
This book doesn't offer any mindfulness exercises like one would expect but instead challenges the reader to make an effort to seek those materials on their own. Resources in the book include links to the authors websites and other online sites, including a link to study by The National Institute of Health on mindfulness. I found that extremely helpful.
Negatives about the book were just the physical book. The copy I had was smaller than a standard book so it was a bit cumbersome to read. The text was not printed well and it was a bit clunky. The cover was not high quality. As a person who still enjoys picking up a book instead of an e-reader, I would like to see a little more care being given to the printed book.
Unfortunately, this book was extremely vague. I was looking for step by step tips on how to unleash the leader, locked deep inside of me. I didn't gain much knowledge from this book at all. The only significant bits of information provided described that being mindful and listening to our feelings is extremely important, and that in order to lead, one must address and acknowledge the leadership potential in others. Any leadership that exerts power over others and contributes to disunity should be avoided. However, I really didn't learn any distinct tools to develop my leadership skills.
