Pg. 60 secret #28: Champions are Comeback Artists: I enjoy how the author gives helpful tidbits on examples of people that have pulled themselves up by their bootstraps. The fact that he lists this lesson as perserverance on the physical plane, toughness on the mental plane, and artistry on the spiritual place is very inspiring.
pg. 114 secret #70: The Great Ones are Products of their Own Imagination: The author mentions who champions combine action with imagination. The action step is really fun as well (he encourages you to allow your imagination to run wild with ideas of your perfect life).
Pg. 155 secret #99: The Great Ones are Aware of their Limitless Potential: This statement really stood out for me because I watched a really fun movie called Limitless that starred Bradley Cooper less than two months ago. The "Limitless" movie illustrated the potential realities possible when unlimited potential is tapped into. This is similiar to the message that I believe that author is trying to send with this secret when he emphasizes that champions wake up one day and realize that their possibilities and potentials that symbolize the unlimited arena.
Pg. 193 secret #124: The World Class Believes in Self-Reliance: Steve mentions how the core of fullfillment comes from within yourself and that the world class learns to rely on themselves to get the answers from within.

The cons:The book is like 2 breathless teenage boys looking at pictures of teenage girls.Every fifth word is "unbelievable" "amazing".The whole book has an phoniness to it.The style is very outdated,some sort of Amway rally style.Later when I went to their webpage it turns out Amway is one of his clients.
The pros:After you got resistant to their breathless style,you can benefit from the precise and concise list of attributes for success.Of course nothing is new but I still benefited "tremendously".
1. Strong self-awareness. Know what your strength, weakness, emotions, habits, thoughts, etc. well.
2. Be confident, bold positive, fun.
3. Integrity and honesty.
4. Strong focus and commitment.
6. Have big goal and dream.
7. Work for fulfillment, not merely success or money.
8. Have balanced life.
These are good suggestions and I mostly agree. However, there are several contradicting messages among them:
1. The book quoted Lance Armstrong more than once for his dedication to success. Unfortunately, Lance is disgraced sports figure who used illegal performance enhancing drugs, just to boost his chance of winning. It is the direct result of winning at any cost this book teaches. While the book also promotes integrity and honesty, the reference of Lance Armstrong is quite ironic and makes the teaching much weaker. Lance Armstrong really should be quotes as a negative example - winning should not be at any cost.
2. Again - on balance of life. Some chapters talks about winning needs commitment, dedication and sacrifice. However these are usually opposite of life balance. Imagine you have family with kids and wife. Winning at business usually means sacrificing time with family. But if you want family life, you may not be able to commit 12 hours by 7 days type of work style. In the end, it all depends on how you think about happiness and fulfillment - is it about your work, or your family? However, the author has been quite elusive on this front. It looks that the author values more about work than family.Read more ›
