What I find disturbing is how right Larry is! He writes about how soft we have become as a society, as parents, so-called leaders and more. How the need to grow a pair is greater than ever.
But wait, there's more!! Larry doesn't leave us hanging in the wind trying to figure out what to do next. He lays out exactly what it means to NOT have a pair. Then the reader is told specifically what it takes TO grow a pair. PLUS, there are exercises to walk us through the entire process.
This is not just a `must read.' It's a must read and TAKE ACTION book. I'm growing my pair bigger, thanks to Larry. What about YOU?
At its heart Larry's message is one of standing up for yourself and for those who can't stand up for themselves. It's about not accepting bad customer service, self-serving politicians, irresponsible parenting, being treated poorly in a relationship or in life.
It's about showing up for yourself and taking responsibility for acting on your goals, about expecting more from yourself and others, and about finding your voice and using it.
It's about not passively accepting whatever the TV pundits on BOTH sides of the political spectrum spout as fact. But rather stepping up to be an informed citizen to seek out facts and to complain less and vote more.
It's about getting crystal clear on your core values and then having the courage of your convictions to do the right thing even when it's uncomfortable, unpopular, or may cause people not to like you something that can be a challenge especially for women.
Do I agree with everything Larry says? Not at all. But Larry would be the first person to encourage myself and others to grow a pair and say and do what we mean.
I highly recommend this book highly and without reservation.
If you are not a Larry Winget fan yet, you are about to be. Larry takes the no-nonsense approach to personal development. He makes us look in the mirror and realize that we all have the power we need to be the best that we can be and to help others do the same. He has a great commitment to family, community and country. I know, you're thinking...."He doesn't look very friendly, and he seems pretty in your face." Well, he is pretty in your face, but he does it out of his own passion for all of us. (He will hate that I used the word passion in this review. Tough Larry, deal with it!) He is actually a very caring guy that is all soft on the inside.
He makes us realize that we all need to do what is right and to have the backbone to do it for ourselves, our kids, and our world. I always enjoy Larry's style of writing and speaking. He cuts out all the fluff and gets right down to what it takes to become more successful. His principles apply to every aspect of our lives (personal, business, family, home, community).
So,go pick up this book. Read it and apply it. You will enjoy the read and you will have a lot BFO's. (Blinding Flashes of the Obvious) You will be inspired and hopefully become motivated to do what you need to do.
Thanks Larry for another great book. Now, when is the next one coming out? Let's not take so long this time. I am already in the need for my next fix!
