motivational books based on his life-time of helping
individuals and businesses to achieve goals and improve
results. In my opinion, this is the best of the group. (One
of his earlier books, "Create Your Own Future," is also
The central theme is that over time, "we usually get what we
think about most." While many things factor into our success,
one of the most critical is the accuracy and power of our
thinking. In general, if we think clearly, we tend to get
better results. If we are optimistic, creative, determined,
resourceful and strategic in our thinking, we will achieve
more and better results than if we are negative, fuzzy and
confused. That seems obvious.
But too often, we forget the obvious. We allow our thinking
to focus on daily annoyances, or petty distractions, or the
latest fad. We get confused by the news, or lose our
confidence when we are criticized or experience a temporary
Here are two key points from the book:
A) If we don't take charge of our thinking, other people and
events surely will.
Every day, advertisers spend a fortune to focus our attention
on their products. News organizations are determined to get
us to think about the latest disaster, tax increase or virus.
People around us want us to focus on THEM and THEIR problems,
rather than our own goals and priorities.
B) Your future will reflect your dominant thoughts.
Your energy level, your self-discipline and self-confidence,
your ambition and your optimism are the raw materials with
which you will build your future, and your thoughts,
attitudes and expectations largely determine your daily
And here's a suggestion of my own: Once is not enough! Most
of us have read a motivational or self-help book in the past.
We've listened to audio programs and we "know this stuff."
That's great! But it's not enough! We are bombarded with
thousands and thousands of negative messages every day.
To stay positive and motivated, to stay focused and
optimistic and ambitious, make sure you add at least a few
minutes of positive reminders to the mix - every single day!
Read every day! Listen to tapes, every day!
This is not a profound book, and there is little that is
truly "new" in it. (Oh, how we love anything that is "new and
improved!") It is merely a wonderful book that you should
read and re-read every year or so, in regular rotation with a
handful of other favorites. Buy, read and enjoy this book.
You may find it at your local bookstore, or you can get it at
Amazon. This is NOT a book to borrow from the library, skim
quickly and return. This is a book to read, and read again.
If you are serious about your future, this is one of the
books you should own and read over the years until it is dog-
eared and falls apart.
It is hard to believe some critics of this book have actually read it. Check it out for yourself. I am an avid reader of Brian Tracy and have led seminars myself on many of the subjects he presents. This is clearly one of his best. Here are some facts:
While this book does repeat many of the ideas you will find in his other books, there is excellent new material as well, and in many cases he adds to previous concepts--sometimes short but exciting ideas that offer a potential to help people make dramatic improvements in their lives.
One feature of this book that is not as common in his other works is the reference to numerous studies by universities and other research groups that demonstrate the validity of the concepts presented. It is helpful to know the basis and validity of these ideas.
The chief value of this book when compared to Brian's other books, or to other books in the field, is that it focuses on the key concept for all thinking about successful living and personal achievement--how you think determines everything. Other works focus on goal setting, time management, and other topics in a somewhat isolated way. This work discusses these but in the context of a person's attitude toward them as the key to success. This is a subtle but important concept.
It is unfortunate that some people who have read widely in the field have downgraded this book by giving it a low rating simply because they already know much of the material. On this basis the very best first grade reader would receive one star by a fifth grader because he/she already knew all the words. This is an outstanding book and deserves five stars on the basis of what it is, not put down because somewhere in over thirty volumes written by the author he may have touched on most of the topics found here. (But remember, there is enough new material to make it worth buying even if you have many of his other works.)
Get it. Read it. It will change your life.
Dr. James G. Salmons
Great book. MAybe his best.
