If you knew you couldn’t fail, what is the greatest thing you would dare to dream? Is the job you now have the one you’ve always wanted? Do you work with the kind of people you’d like to work with? As personal success expert Brian Tracy can attest, it’s not until you deal with the dissatisfactions of the present that you can move onward and upward to create the wonderful future that is possible for you. And it is possible.
In Reinvention, Brian Tracy reveals how every one of us is engineered for success, and with the right focus, can remake ourselves and put an end to the chronic stress, unhappiness, and dissatisfaction we might feel in our careers and lives. This unique, life-altering book gives readers an interactive series of exercises they can use to focus on what they really want for themselves, and:
take control of their careers • turn unexpected shakeups and turbulence into positive occasions for growth • dramatically improve their earning ability • develop the self-confidence to take the kind of risks that lead to rapid advancement • decide on and get the job they really want • set clear goals for their lives • write resumes that get results • determine their own salary range
We live in a time of rapid change...but also of unprecedented opportunity. This book supplies readers with a proven system they can use to turn their greatest dreams into reality!

In Chapter Two, the reader is asked to begin a series of exercises (many of which are completed within the book) and continue until the last chapter. Tracy realizes that, more often than not, "haste makes waste" and certainly advises against impulsive behavior, especially when making decisions, but he does urge his reader to "move fast when an opportunity or need presents itself. Pick up the pace. Take action of some kind. Get on it with it!" Completion of the various exercises helps to expedite the process of personal reinvention while reinforcing Tracy's key points. I also recommend use of a notebook or journal in which to record thoughts and feelings, express concerns, document key developments, etc. Personal reinvention consists of both a journey and destination. Those embarked on that process should be results-driven.Read more ›
This book is ideal for anyone who's facing difficult changes right now, or wishes to improve and "re-engineer" their life. I've been a longtime Brian Tracy fan, he's one of the few core people who's had a dramatic impact on my life, and this book adds to the knowledge you can get from studying Brian Tracy's winning approach.
Specifically, what's new and different about "Reinvention", and why I recommend it so highly, is:
+ It has a very methodical, proven step-by-step process you can use to "take stock" of where you're at, and how to map out a plan for actions to be taken moving forward.
+ Interactive activities, eg self-check lists and inventories designed to help you highlight what you're best at, how to benefit from it, and what personal strategic direction you want to move forward with.
+ For those seeking jobs, Brian's put together an entire chapter on how to get the perfect job you want, including new tips that are action-oriented and focused for results.
+ Chapter 6, my favorite, is entitled "How Do You Get Ahead?", and contains tons of new tactics that Brian hasn't shared anywhere else yet (like how to "Become Profit-Oriented in Your Business", for example).
+ Tactics for helping you reinvent yourself and put together a plan that will motivate you to "give yourself the benefit of the doubt", during tough times, to find out what direction you want to head in next, and to get started moving in a positive, specific action-oriented manner forward.Read more ›
I don't mind that in general. After all, the reason there are so many is that it's valuable to hear the same thing from multiple angles, said differently, etc.
But Brian Tracy, as much as I love him, has really exhausted the well and seems to just be retreading his own old ground.
Sure, it's fine. If you're not familiar with Brian Tracy's work then I would recommend this pretty strongly. But if you've read any two of "Eat That Frog", "Goals!", "No Excuses!", "Master Strategies For Higher Achievement" or "The Power of Self Confidence" then just skip this. It's the same stuff all over again.
Only thing I didn't like was Brian Tracy saying, always put the Company first. Companies do use people too. He needs to talk a bit about leaving your job too if you don't like it. It's really a 'At Will' employment now.
