Potential buyers beware! Fettke is an action advocate. Those looking for an approach to success strictly through "thinking big thoughts" will be disappointed. But, if you believe big thinking must be coupled with big action, Fettke's book is an excellent guide to an exhilarating climb. He is a poster child for the action imperative!
As a six time graduate of Outward Bound expeditions, I was very comfortable with the many analogies that Rich introduces through his experiences in facing challenges when climbing, skydiving, and the like. I too have found climbing to be a great mind and body stretcher. Readers who haven't experienced such challenges just need to accept his teaching points on face value, something I found easy because of the authenticity that pours off the pages.
One example of that authenticity and his exceptional wisdom is the story of pushing his daughter on a swing and her teaching him that we all are on a different path and one should not push without permission. Gems like that fill this book, making it heads and shoulders above other self help books.
PS His challenge for all of us to become "Angel Advocates" rather than "Devil Advocates" is a gem that can pay huge dividends for those who take pride in "challenging" the dreams and plans of others.
In this empowering book, Rich shows you that you can achieve extreme success without compromising your health and relationships. Yes you can make more money by having a balanced life compared to a workaholic way of life.
Yes, make no mistake--long hours and relentless persistence pays off. But it does have to be at all cost? Rich does shows you how you can achieve greater results by letting go. By not working so hard. Yes of course you're going to have to put in the effort, but Rich shows you how to make it fun!
Another vital lesson contained is how to deal with fear. Rich as dedicates much time to work with people to break through their fears and go on to life their ideal life.
He recounts many personal tales of how he dealt with fear by embracing it rather than
And make no mistake Rich walks the talk. He describes in great detail how he dealt with fear in life and death situations. He tells how he even saw his tombstone (in the event of the worse case scenario when we was bungee jumping off the Golden Gate bridge) He recounts how he panicked when his parachute wouldn't open at 5000 feet up in the air after parachuting from an airplane, falling speedily towards the ground.
And most importantly he shows how we can use these examples in our daily life to be more courageous and take on bigger risks; to challenge ourselves to go to the next level. We all know that nothing great has ever been achieved without stretching. So read this book and utilize the awesome practical techniques and strategies to your own journey of Extreme Success!
Zev Saftlas, Author of Motivation That Works
I admit that I expected a cocky, loud and aggressive presenter (in line with the whole xtreme theme). But the author sounds genuinely concerned for my improvement and comes across with a calm authority and some great life guidance techniques. His voice pitch and tone are calming and the ideas presented are simple and clear to understand.
The author takes the mantras and step by step techniques used in preparing for extreme sports (bungee, skydiving) and makes the crossover to put them to use in your own daily experience. Building and protecting your confidence is a main theme. Using your fear as a partner is great stuff too.
He makes reference to forms and diagrams that are not available in the CD version. Hopefully they'll show up on his website.
At times I have thought that I needed a shrink just to have someone to talk to about my thoughts. Turns out I need a life coach. I'm not crazy after all, just unclear of my objectives.
A real surprise gem. Great job Rich- I'm looking forward to the sequel.
