This book understands you. What makes Gorilla Mindset so unique is its ability to instill useful and sustainable tools within, rather than relying on a jolt of inspiration that we can so often talk ourselves out of or forget during the everyday struggles of life. It's not a fairy tale, it's a blueprint. It's real.
I'm naturally inclined to feel that only I can improve myself, and thus I believed that a self-improvement book from an external voice might be a waste of time. As someone who would consider himself introspective to a fault, what could this book tell me I'm capable of that I didn't already know? To my pleasant surprise, it's as if 'Gorilla Mindset' unlocked a part of my brain. It made me introspect my introspection.
It's enlightened me on how harsh I was on myself without even realizing it, forced me to face how counterproductive my negative self-talk really was, and guided me on how to maneuver through these patterns to the point that maintaining a beneficial mindset now becomes natural. I find myself no longer letting negative thoughts spiral without this mindset forcing them to a quicker, more productive conclusion. Nevertheless, the most rewarding feature has been using these tools not only during stressful situations, but proactively.
What brings its effectiveness full circle is Mike's own honest introspection throughout the book, making it a sort of interactive blueprint. As a fellow introvert, it's given me access to truly examining my behavior patterns, make sense of them, and ultimately step outside of them without anxiety. I step outside of them because it is now the obvious and easy thing to do.
For me, the experience was like being lifted to an aerial view of gigantic dominoes I had been setting up with limited perspective from the ground for my entire life. Knocking them down would've been a tragedy before, but after observing all of those strange paths I strayed on, starting over has been a pleasure.
Thank you, Mike.
At first glance, it is just a self-help book. There are scores of books written on the subject. And this book is not that different from them. However, great works do not necessarily stand out because they are different. The greatest writers actually do the exact same things that lesser ones do. But - they do them better. They spot, by intuition, the little details that matter, and form with an all-encompassing vision a coherent and fascinating whole.
Gorilla Mindset is a great book because it is so concise and penetrating. It is stripped of all redundancy, and the concepts that remain are powerful. It is important that you read it from start to finish without skipping chapters, because everything is organized and every chapter adds a new layer to the previous foundation. But the most important thing is reading it many times over again, thinking about everything the author writes about, and applying it to your own life. Gorilla Mindset thus becomes a companion who both guides you and prompts you to action.
This book won't fix your life, but it will be the kick in the ass you need to stop making excuses and start making changes.
