Editorial Reviews

Review

"What Vlad calls the "excellence habit" may seem an easy change of attitude but is in fact a lifelong process. Some people are born with this gift but most can acquire it at any stage of their lives and following previous failures. This is the attitude and habit of those who are smart and brave enough to strive for the best and truly desire a fulfilling life." Vess G. "I highly recommend The Excellence Habit. I found the book to be very engaging and thought provoking. The author's ability to use real life examples to show the points he is trying to make and cross reference relevant academic research is exemplary. This is a great book that will certainly be very helpful for anyone wanting to increase their personal and professional performance." Juan Montoya "I would recommend this insightful book to anyone embarking on a new endeavor, starting a new job, wanting to start a new business, or about to make a big change in his or her life. Reading this book will help you take an honest look at yourself and teach you to mindfully make simple changes that can impact the outcome of your work in a big way." Rick Baggio "We all need help breaking bad habits and forming good ones. Vlad eloquently takes us on a journey beneath the iceberg and onto reality so we can make excellence a Habit. Great read, thoroughly recommend it." Michael Potts "What a great book! I love Amy Cuddy's story about overcoming obstacles and never giving up. What gets me motivated is reading about what someone went through to overcome tough times. There are some amazing examples. This book stays in my Kindle!" Shantee' Parks

This is a very smooth, well written, and interesting read. This book has a positive tone and provides inspiration to readers. I recommend it to young professionals and everyone in need for motivation. Using down-to-earth examples, the author showcases excellence and success stories and discussions. With a friendly tone, the author suggests that each situation can end up in a success story and emphasizes these thoughts by providing real life exemplars. As a result, the concepts in this book can be easily applied to one's own life or can be used to help others see the light at the end of the tunnel.

She is a true testament to not giving up! What gets me motivated is reading about what someone went through to overcome obstacles. There are some amazing examples in this book. And you still get the Authors own life experience which is a really nice touch. He also shows us how we can utilize these best practices. This book stays in my Kindle!

I really enjoyed this book. It really shows how all of us need to make a small mental shift in our focus, looking at the little things that are so important and ignoring societal pressures for specific results. It clarifies the difference between excellence and success, and it demonstrates how we should aim for excellence through the recommended small changes. This book will make you re-examine your own behaviors. It will, I think, improve the quality of your life. It was nicely written and well organized. In my opinion, it was very helpful for anyone and everyone.

This book displays excellence in the manner of writing, which pretty much depicts that the writer knows what he's talking about. In this book you'll find stories of excellence that were achieved after accepting a series of unfortunate events, rejections and facing fear squarely. Inspiring stories that define the true essence of excellence which summed up in this book as the Iceberg principle, the law of not selling out and the journey of the mindset. These three things confuses me at first but I as read on, I found out that excellence is achieved by simply changing your mindset to do what you think is right regardless of what people may think about.

This was a well-written book for all people looking to see how mindset can affect your business and life outcomes. I loved the iceberg reference because so often, we forget all the hard work and effort that is put into the successful people. I also like how this book explained that being in order to succeed as an entrepreneur, you must have an little bit of a ego. You will get knocked down, so recovering from that and how we respond is key. Wonderful book :)

An awesome inspirational book full of practical ideas we could incorporate in our day-to-day lives to achieve excellence. Real stories from the lives of people who scaled new heights combined with key lessons we all can learn from their experiences. Written in a smooth flowing manner and connecting the dots as a reader moves along makes this a "can't put down" book until you finish.
