It hit home on different levels, putting things off, not following through on started tasks etc. Having read the book I'm driving forward,doing the things I was putting off.I've entered an Adventure race,something I've talked about doing, now I've done it. A HUGE drive impetus and I LOVE IT.
This book made a HUGE difference to my outlook on issues that I didn't know were issues. Get this book if you feel that you put things off or procrastinate on issues , don't get it if these things aren't a problem for you.
There exists, Kelsey argues, a dichotomy between those who fear failure and those who don't. Most self-help books are aimed at the latter, because this phenomenon is so poorly understood. Which is why most of these books don't help any of those who feel inclined to read them.
Those with High Fear of Failure (High FF's) must recognize their disability, then accept it for what it is, and finally plan for how to achieve great things despite of it -- or perhaps with its aid.
In fact, when doing it right, High FF's may have better chances of becoming extraordinary leaders and successful entrepreneurs than others.
Kelsey's book is both personal, instructional and philosophical. Chances are high you will recognize yourself in his anecdotes, and find inspiration in his advise.
If you feel you need a book like this, read it immediately! Hits so many topics that I never linked together (e.g. Causes of procrastinstion).
I'll be revisiting it over and over when personal challenges arise.
