It's tempting to pass off self-help books as being full of either common-sense advice or modern psycho-babble, and I'm glad to say that this book fits in neither category. I very much like how the author carefully set expectations, provided clear and definitive steps to meet those expectations, and then offered follow-up resources for readers.
The book begins with an interesting quote,
"Waking up each morning excited to start your day and going to sleep each night grateful for every opportunity, regardless of any challenges, is my definition of success"
That single sentence succinctly states what to expect from the subsequent text. The author amplifies the opening quote with a brief section, "Why I Wrote This Book," and then proceeds to offer advice in a roughly three-point plan. First, identify where you are now. Second, come to a full understanding of where you wish to be. Finally, work the plan to achieve those goals, with an understanding of how to knock out bad habits and other obstacles to your success.
The writing style is straightforward and conversational, almost as if you were talking directly with the author. I believe that this style is best suited for such a book.
A few of my favorite chapters were the ones on how to knock out really bad habits, the list of do's and dont's in paving your way to success and the self-check questions after the conclusion. The author also provides several online resources to assist you in the path to a more successful future.
How to live life on a happier note? The author is generous in providing tips and suggestions to make our thoughts lighter and our relationships harmonious. Of course it's up to everyone to do the job and I agree with Jonathan Bello's quote `I have learned that everything you want in life is right out of your comfort zone'.
This is a book you can open at any page and read powerful sentences that will make you think about your life in a positive way. I highly recommend this guide.
Put simply: It's an easy read, and it could very well be helpful if you want to improve yourself.
This book gives useful and practical tips on how to overcome the negative way of thinking. There are great tips to help us motivate ourselves to achieve our goals in life. Very informative, powerful and motivational. It's all about attitude and recognizing your positive thoughts. You can do it! Get positive and stay that way!
5 stars and I am sharing this with all of my six children. Every family should have this great book. It is after all, a learning process and I go to sleep each night grateful for every opportunity!
