You won't be able to make excuses for your mindset and attitudes after reading Gorilla Mindset, because you'll be making conscious choices about what you think, feel, and do. You'll either choose to turn problems into opportunities, or sit there feeling sorry for yourself. You'll choose focus on the things that matter or you'll let yourself be carried away by every circumstance that comes along. As Gorilla Mindset shows, Mindset is Mindfulness.
When I was in a pretty bad car crash and dealing with some awful people at insurance companies, the things that made the most difference were the prayers and support of my friends and family, plus the lessons I learned from Gorilla Mindset. I wrote down what I was thinking and feeling, then I wrote down what I was going to do about it, and from that point on I had something concrete to hold myself to and draw encouragement from.
Mike sets some very powerful tools out for his readers in Gorilla Mindset, but all the mindset help in the world doesn't do any good unless you put it into practice. The tools in Gorilla Mindset are simple, straightforward, and practical. Buy this book, read it, and share it with the people who are important to you.
The first time I read it, I applied the content to my life and I got what I needed out of it. In years to follow, as my life got more complex, refreshing myself with the material helped me out again.
I would consider this the genesis material for understanding Mike's work. I use his products and services, and attended one of his seminars and this book is the bedrock of knowledge. Read it to fully appreciate the rest of what he does
The book is easy to read and the information and ideas presented flow together seamlessly throughout. As many people point out the ideas and points Mike makes seem basic but I think that’s the point. Mike “reframed” basic ideas and shows others how to effectively apply them to their lives. Maybe it doesn’t work for every but I’d say the book is a very good starting point for those trying to breath new life into their minds and body’s. Well worth. Cheers.
A negative: some editing/review errors. I think this was online first then converted to a book(?)
The writing is engaging and the chapter length is appropriate and fairly consistent.
The earlier parts of the book about mindset and positivity are the most generally useful. His later suggestions on health, such as taking aspirin to improve blood flow, are more opinion-based than useful.
A reader can do their own research to identify a diet and exercise regimen that works for them.
For this reason, the first half of the book is the most useful. The second half felt like filler content that advised how to live more like the author does, rather than generally useful tips.
Overall, he focuses on being positive and proactive in life, which is a valuable mindset that I cannot argue with.
I think 3 stars is a fair rating: good advice overall, but the filler content would best be left out.
