A "MUST READ" at any age for anyone who feels stalled in their career, or their life.
Sam's approach to different situations and his humorous way of phrasing things is not only uplifting but also very intuitive.
If anyone you know needs an attitude adjustment, here is a painless way to kick them right where they need it, and have them thanking you afterward!
I felt so energized once I was done, it was incredible! I got it! He has such a genuine way of sharing his life, and how he turned it around for the better! This book is inspirational, motivating, makes you laugh, and probably shed a few tears... But it will undoubtedly raise your spirit, improve your life, and definitely change your attitude!
I am on my third read now, and because I refuse to separate myself from it (don't you always keep your jumper cables in your car? what good are they to you if you lend them to everyone and anyone??? LOL!), I bought two more copies! Yep, you read right! One that I am routing amongst my most cherished friends (because they deserve it), and another copy that I will be giving to the owner of the company I am working for. I hope she'll see the value in this amazing book, and will get some of those basic principles applied to her company! We could all benefit from Sam's insights, and wonderful humor!
The man rocks!
So if you are still wondering if you should buy a copy of this book. Don't. Buy 2 right away! I guarantee you, you will love it!
Sam Glenn would like to tell you how to change your attitude but, surprise, surprise he doesn't blame you for feeling down! Isn't that refreshing?
Glenn gives the usual advice about humour and spending time readjusting your mood, but what makes this book shine is his point about courage, not tolerating bullies and being yourself. When I read the chapter about bullies a lightbulb went on! This went beyond the "power of positive thinking" to dealing with the very real enemies of well being. How common it is to have an entire office dominated by a bully--not the boss mind you, but an office bully who rules through gossip and intimidation. Dealing with this kind of stuff is upsetting--especially in the first few years of your career. But not dealing with it can be so overwheming that you find your attitude toward everything being affected.
Glenn has a wide variety of strategies and good habits, all of them worthwhile including dreaming big, living healthy, taking the highroad (a tactic not to be mistaken for tolerating dishonesty or bullying). I like this a lot. The writing is jargon free. You may know quite a bit of this, but its an excellent refresher and fun to read.
