Hardly anyone wants to live a mediocre life. If you want to live an extraordinary life then this book might be for you. The author spends some time explaining that if you are a Christian, God wants you to be successful. This goes against a poverty/scarcity mentality but it is not quite prosperity gospel. Tommy Newberry basically says that thinking small does not serve the world. He wants you to be an unstoppable force for good.
The book has an encouraging tone and most of the time the author speaks the truth with love. In order to be happy and successful the author believes you must write down goals and have a mission statement. He effectively helps you write both. Visualization, goal maps (vision boards) and subconscious programming are also discussed.
To be honest this book makes the best case for writing down goals that I've ever read. After reading this book you will realize that you have to read your goals once a day at least. Some of the ideas in this book will make you leave your comfort zone. But if you are ready to create your life the seven lessons in this book will help you tremendously. The time management strategies alone are worth the price of the book.
~The Rebecca Review
Newberry breaks up his book in seven lessons about success, choosing what you become, writing down compelling goals, investing your time wisely, stop interfering with yourself, visualize success, and making the right choices to have boundless energy. Tommy provides you with actions steps, questions to think about and principles to get you going, because life is not fair and "insisting on a level playing field disrupts your attention and distracts you from your ultimate objective."
This is a great book to motivate the small business owner and entrepreneur, and to help keep them focused on what is really important in success. Life is about choices and making bad ones can affect where you are. Tommy tells you to make good choices and trust in the Lord, who is the "infinite source and ultimate provider of all good things." This book was first reviewed on Inteljim.com.
What I liked about this book was just about everything. I liked the way it was so, clearly written. Also, it was my timing to read this book. It was if it was written just for me. It gave me clarity and understanding myself and knowing what I really wanted in my life and how to achieve it.
I am going to read the book again, and again and get these steps written in this book internalized. That I know what I want and how to achieve it and that I can help someone else that was struggling like I was.
i STARTED this book and could not put it down until I finished it. I so, enjoyed and learned from this book.
I recommend this book to anyone that does not know and understand the word, "Success", for them.
The one that is so, struggling like I was to know what I wanted in life and not know how to even start to know how to achieve it. Like this book so, very well brakes down in steps and description (s) to understand exactly.
I haven't found anything I did not like.
Be aware however that the author is a committed Christian and his faith is part of his motivation. He is clear however that a reader can make a different faith choice and still get good things from the book. I agree.
Nevertheless, the book does call for a serious dedication to some habits that most people are probably familiar with, such as goal setting and regular review, along with a host of other steps. And there is a serious call to abandon any thought of half-measures. I'm not comfortable with risking everything on the basis of something I read in a book however, no matter how much I like everything else between the covers. You will have to find your own comfort zone there.
My conclusion is that this is a much better than average book of the type and I recommend it highly.
