I was that person. My life became so much better since reading "The Power of Self Discipline." For a while I enjoyed immense success in all of my goals, and gradually I stagnated. I didn't think it made such a difference. It wasn't until reading this book again that I realized what a tremendous, positive influence his books made, how much of my success I owe to him. I only wish I had read this sooner.
A lot of people will say, "self help books don't work." I consciously choose to ignore these people. I have seen measurable results already once again in all areas of my life, materially, physically, and emotionally. "I'll just reread the notes I took from the other book," I told myself. No, it is a completely different experience to read the entire book, whichever one you choose by Brian Tracy.
He is the grandfather we all needed. (I hope he is not that old, but his tone is so warm, humble, and wise.) I hope to be one of the people that write to him about the success they've received since hearing him talk, but not yet. I have not achieved all of the success I want yet.
I will make it a point to read a book by him every first of the month.
The book does present excellent ideas. Even though some might feel obvious when you read them, the way they are layed out is quite impressive.
This book is themed "self-confidence" but it really and truly is an inspirational, philosophical guide for responsible living and sustainable happiness.
Chapters end with questions for you to answer about yourself. I think it's very well put together and helpful if you follow through.
Inspirational and wise, the book hits its stride by offering concrete, practical steps, as the subtitle promises, for "becoming unstoppable, irresistible and unafraid in every area of your life." Overstated? Perhaps a little. What I found, however, was enough inspiration plus "perspiration" in the book's action steps, virtues and values to make a measurable difference in my work life, personal relationships and overall achievements. I only wish I'd discovered this book when I was starting my career. But as Brian Tracy would say, it's never too late to grow, climb and make a difference.
Some say this is one of the author's best books. I've only looked at one other--the one on reinventing yourself. This book, by far, is the stronger choice. If you need a big boost of self-confidence, and long to learn the steps to acquire it, here's a great book to buy, study and keep. Great for sharing with others, too. Five-star rating!
