Top Customer Reviews
I could write a review for days on this book and how it changed my life but I don't want to bore you. I basically started telling everyone around me to read it. I even told the 22 year old kid that worked at the genius bar at a Mac store to please pick it up. Had I read this book back in college I would be in such a different place right now!
-Rory picks up tips and ideas from classics such as 7 Habits from highly successful people and pin points the essence of all of these books. It's like a cliff notes of all of the best selling "How to be successful".
-Great easy to read tone that doesn't annoy you or make you feel like a snobby "told you so" type person
-When you finish it, you will want more. There is a second book that follows, "Procrastination on purpose", but keep this one on your night stand and reread the parts that you need to work on.
Mr. Vaden uses the lives of various successful persons as clear examples that work, determination, self discipline and the likes is not easy but is required to achieve the dreams you've been given. He further includes seven principles, sacrifice, commitment, focus, integrity, scheduling, faith, and action, which are the stairs for success.
The author doesn't sugar coat anything to make you feel good, but uses his life experience as a testimonial that if it can work for him, it can work for you. This is also what makes this read authentic because the methods he's implemented on these pages have been proven to work.
What I love about this book is that Rory isn't telling you something that is a long hidden mystery. There's no "special" secret to success that some people have access to. We ALL have it inside of us. This book will just help open your eyes to the ways you are hindering yourself. And it helps provide focus for you, and a way to structure your goals.
After reading this book was I instantly cured? Of course not. Because what I learned from this book is that this isn't an easy process. It takes time and a real change of your habits. But this book has stayed with me. I think about it constantly when I want to do something easy instead of something harder that will lead me to my goals. I'm not there but I'm on my way.
