This book is very motivational and will help you get going in the right direction. The principals and stories are good illustrations of ways to stay positive and working toward your goals. The story really pain and the pictures of the principals stated. It is easy to read and can be somewhat entertaining. I only gave this one 4 stars because it was not super organized, and as someone who does not notice typos and grammar errors, there were a good number that jumped out. I've worked for over nine years and have become successful at my career. I also just completed an MSc. in Information Systems Management at 27 years but have found myself unsatisfied. The dissatisfaction not from my lack of achievement because I found myself wanting more and feeling like I still didn't know what I wanted to do with my life. I'm only in Chapter one but I'm profoundly impressed with the content of this book, I can't put it down and continue to be mid blown by the nuggets of wisdom shared like "Tough times don't last, tough people do" and "There comes a time when you have to drop your burdens in order to fight for yourself and your dreams". I can say now that I'm at a turning point in my life and I'm happy I was told about this book.

Les Brown - STOP DOUBTING YOURSELF (Powerful Motivational Video)
if you want something out of life if you want to change yourself if you want to acquire something if there's some goal that you want to reach that is really not easy as some people will make us feel that living your dream changing your behaviors overcoming negative habits it's challenging it's hard most people don't know where their fastball is most people go through life never discovering what that talents are most people never develop that talents the only thing that's gonna make you happy my friend and this year or any other is to step up.

it's to raise the standard it's to discover what you're capable of and feel that incredible power of pushing through whatever is holding you back and get to the other side of more of your true self that's what this games all about when you step into your fears and continue to push yourself to go on something happens for you if you look at somebody's really successful anything Wow I mean they're so amazing they're such a genius you got to dig underneath and you got to remember something people are rewarded in public for what they've practiced for years in private. if you don't develop the courage to do that which has been given you to do and you spend a lot of time going around trying to convince other people are trying to get their approval what will happen is that you will lose your nerve and other people will convince you that what you're doing doesn't have any value and you give up on your dream Chan how much time do you have left how much time do you have left when you stop thinking about that we don't know most of us don't use the stuff that we have brought into the universe stop wasting valuable time.

if you want something you have got to be relentless you've got to learn how to become resourceful you've got to learn how to become creative power to hold on in spite of everything the power to endure this is the winners quality what this power is I cannot say all I know is that it exists and it becomes available only when a man or woman is in that state of mind in which he or she knows exactly what he or she wants and is fully determined not to quit until they find it that's greatness in you and you've got to learn how to tune out the critics outside and the critic inside and since I'm going to do this I'm going to harness my will and I'm not going to let anything stop me.

I deserve this most people won't do that most people give up on themselves easily you know the human spirit is powerful this nothing is powerful it's hard to kill the human spirit to live your life with passion with some Drive decide that you're going to push yourself you've got to focus on you and as you convince you as you sell yourself every day every day every day you will begin to see a difference in the things that you're doing selling yourself on your ability to perform a job to achieve a certain objective telling yourself every day here I go again and I got what it takes this is my day and nothing out here is going to stop me have a ghen eyes Dover making a decision some decisions of major decisions and also there are a lot of small decisions that we don't make that they tax our minds they drain our energy they create a lot of anxiety and nervousness and mental torment because we don't take care of it we decide not to decide which is a decision deciding to decide to act it's a major major challenge for all of us at different points in different areas of our lives and there are things that happen to us along. the way experiences that we have that prevent us from working through the mental block of acting of doing those things that we know we ought to do and so what I want you to think about is what is there that you know you need to do that you want to do this but for some reason or another you've been holding back for some reason or another you just have not been able to gather your nerves or be able to work through the procrastinating or putting it off or justifying or blaming some reason or another you just haven't done it and you know you ought to do this you really want to do this but you don't know why you haven't done it anybody know what I'm talking about Rach and please okay then I've got comfort here this evening.

I'm not talking to myself now first of all what we know that this is not easy because in order to begin to reinvent your life you've got to make a conscious deliberate determined effort that you really got to put all of yourself into it it's very challenging to act to do those things that times when you're looking at if you say I know I need to do this but I don't feel like it I don't want to do it I know I need to do it yet leave me alone no I don't want to do it so what do we do one of those things that that cause us to do like that I think that among the things that prevent us from acting is the fear of failure and if you've already failed you don't want to fail again the pain of that the disappointment the fear of loss is another thing because many times when we do those things that we know we need to do we feel that we might lose somebody that we love very much in care about.

we don't want to hurt anybody many of us don't act because we want other people's approval we want everybody to like us and to accept us and that's not possible many of us don't do the things that we want to do and don't act because of lack of self-confidence we don't believe enough in ourselves I have a friend who's been working on a job where she's miserable talented want to go to another place that she can do what she wants to do and make the kind of money that she would like to make and had had some offers but because of her fear and her lack of self-confidence of things might not work out she won't take a chance on herself so there she is spending eight hours a day five days a week and she's miserable she hates to go to work then that thing on what she's worth.

she knows it but yet and still she won't do that which she knows she must do and it's wearing out that a lot of people that their jobs are making them sick because they won't act you check out the absenteeism and the people that are depressed you see them coming to work angry how you doing I don't know just leave me alone it's not even 9:00 o'clock kid you're talking about good morning that day's you go to work you want to just keep drive past a job you know you don't want to stop because it's not in sync with who you are but you haven't acted have another friend he's God brilliant he's a business consultant he helped a lot of people get their business started and people come to him because they know he's knowledgeable but this guy won't start his own business now he's very smart.

he could do it everybody believes in him except him and he's so smart he's talked himself out of well the numbers aren't right so there are many reasons why we don't act there are other things though that affect us is that not wanting to take personal responsibility we want somebody else to do it and we many times we pick up our inability to do certain things from people that we love people that we admire we identify with them and we live in the context of their ideas their opinions and their life patterns we buy into it unconsciously my mother is a pack rat she keeps everything she doesn't throw anything away and I have unconsciously picked that up now my mother never said let me show you how to keep everything less than just clutter things I unconsciously picked that up many times unconsciously.

we tried to honor the people we love by being like them by the same token I realized something about myself when I had some major decisions to make and I found myself acting like my mother see my mother's the kind of person that when she has a problem with one of the other foster children that she adopted she won't confront them she will call me less why don't you tell Linda to move she's lazy she won't go to work she runs the street all day and then she comes home and wants to sleep all day and I think she's doing drugs I said but mama why don't you tell Linda that I bought the house for you I told.

you when she wanted to come home don't let a grown person come there and take care of them you let her in well after all she's my child mama then you handle that when I tell her to leave she say mama say I can say mama can I send you tell her yes and then you call me say she's still here why worry me with this so mama hasn't developed the courage to act on that some people won't act until there's a crises situation when Linda stop stealing from Mama and took a Social Security check to get some drugs mama got some courage to say get out of here but don't ever come back but she wouldn't do it until then and say we don't have to wait until a crisis situation I have a friend that had been having a challenge with losing weight both of us have been dealing with that challenge and for the past 40 years.

he's always seemed like weighed over 235 pounds and so he said man I just can't lose weight I'm big-boned it I said bud I've never seen any fat skeletons no you need to act on your health you can change this well you don't have to go to your grave fat we're all digging early grades without teeth we don't have to do this they need to have a support group around him and empty nuts you want a support group on something and throw Snickers in there too but and I can tell you about the help we need with that so what happened with bud though he became ill a few weeks ago he bought in last few weeks has lost more weight than his ever lost even when we were competing with each other betting a lot of money but what happened was bud became diabetic he went into an insulin shock he didn't know that.

he was diabetic his blood sugar became high and the doctor said to him you are diabetic you're gonna have to have insulin shots every day you're gonna have to change your diet and let me tell you what's going to happen if you don't do what we tell you to do number one there's a possibility that you can become an amputee number two you can go blind three you can become impotent bucks they help me.

like of guys with poor when when Barbara got a jail with gassy tell me what I must do to be saved what were to be seen I said but you wanna wonder my peanut butter and jelly sandwiches no I said but I can't believe you're eating vegetables man you're exercising he said that's right a jogging in place too now he had the ability to do it before but there's some people it takes that kind of crises to bring them into reality in order for them to act in their own best interest some people have to hit rock bottom in order to rise I don't know why you want to begin to look out on your life and what you want for you and I think that when we begin to focus in the area of what does it take for us to act I think we can say events can inspire us to act like that particular VIN in his life circumstances friend of mine he wanted to do something and he just did not have the motivation in the drive and the confidence within himself but his circumstances changed overnight through an acquisition of the company that.

he worked for he lost his job through the inspiration of desperation he had to act see life also of things that can inspire us that see we don't have the courage and that's what it takes courage it takes guts to do that which you know you need to do if you don't have the courage to act life many times will move on you and make you a life will whip your butt so bad you will be so miserable you will catch so much hell you say yes I will do it what do you want me to do take me friend of mine say I can't stop smoking I can't stop smoking doctor said Sam axelrod you have emphysema say I've never picked up another cigarette and said look of those stupid people smoking Sam you did it for 35 years how can you talk about people while I was different I'm trying to help them they don't have to do the same thing.

I did but be compassionate self isn't it interesting how quickly we forget so I'm saying that look at something in your life it might be just writing a letter to somebody to say thank you it might be just to apologize to somebody I had a confrontation and the Penobscot building with the security guard there he responded to me what I perceived as a negative way and he and I engaged in an argument I did not like the way I handled that I avoided going through the front door for a long time because I didn't want to face him finally I decided to act and I went up to him and said I want to apologize to you for the way in which I handled this argument.

we had the other day I was wrong I hope you accept my apology he said I do and I said thank you very much I felt relieved now when you decide to act it's not always going to be like that a friend of mine did some work for me it was below par to say the least I knew that this guy was capable of doing better work I knew that he also had a fragile ego so I was trying to think of what is the most sensitive way in which I can share this information with him because I wanted him to do my work over I was going to pay him for what he did but I needed my work done right but I was afraid that I would hurt his feelings I was very very meticulous and how I approached him and I said let me share this with you you know I care about.

you and that you're a very talented and gifted person and you and I both know that what you have given me is not a true reflection of your talents and abilities and I'm saying let's go back in the studio and do this again and he said to me I'm gonna forget you ever said that I was wiped out he never spoke to me again now when you decide to act you're gonna have some people like that we're no longer friends I lost sleep over that ladies and gentlemen as I can't believe that I remember setting up one night looking at the fog I said I gotta call him said no that's it don't forget that I thought men looking we've been knowing each other too long to allow this to come between us he said don't call me anymore huh No and then I I wanted to think about how what can I do to make it up to him and then something caged me less what do you have to prove see many things.

we don't do it's because the fact we want people to like us there's some necessary losses in life when you decide acting in your best interest you're gonna lose some friends everybody's not going to approve of you there's some people that won't like you who do you think you're you're arrogant what do you think you can do you think you could get away with that you're selfish thanks I got that it's my life and so what I'm saying to you is that as you begin to look out on your life this is challenging this is not easy acting so what are the things that we can begin to do to harness our will number one you've got to bring it out and look at it you've got to take the power out of it you've got to expose it to the truth and the truth is that it has no power over you so write down something.

you want to act on but for some reason that you've been holding back and look at it the next thing is ask yourself the question is it helping you to continue to put it off if it's an asset for you to continue to procrastinate then continue to do that but if it's a liability for you if it's causing you some mental and some emotional challenges or perhaps a financial problem look at that examine that for what it is next step ask yourself what's blocking you what's preventing you from acting why don't you have the curl to handle that why won't you face that what are you running away from what kind of avoidance behavior are you engaged in Nexus what is the worst thing that can happen when you take action sound looked at that and I said what's the worst thing can happen when I tell him.

this he can say I don't like you and he did not what happened I experienced that I looked at that I saw that and guess what ladies and gentlemen I didn't die my feelings were hurt a little bit I lost some sleep about it and sometimes I think about it when I Drive past his house but I'm still here it's uncomfortable but it's okay it doesn't bother me anymore I've gotten used to it now so what is the worst thing that can happen I want you to visualize that experience that filled with nervousness in the discomfort and the more you run it in your mind the less power that it will have next is how will you feel after taking this action I felt a sense of personal achievement when I face somebody that has been my mentor for years and for years that was something.

I wanted to tell him and I didn't have the courage to tell him because it was always I was a student he was to teach you it was always I looked up to him and admired him and held him in high esteem and I was always grateful and thankful for the impact that he had on my life and I loved him so much I didn't have the courage to say to him please stop drinking so much you're an alcoholic you need help I didn't have the courage because I was afraid that he might not like me I was afraid that he might be hurt and crushed that we would no longer be friends I didn't want to jeopardize what we had I loved him a great deal and I didn't I didn't know how this would affect our relationship and I didn't even want him to know that I knew that he was an alcoholic and so I was a coward I was spineless in the name of love.

I did it to justify to myself to stop from helping somebody that I loved from dying I said I love him so much I just can't tell him this I I don't even know how he would handle it to know that I know that he's an alcoholic and finally after years I developed the courage to face my teacher my mentor who has molded me who looks at me now and wanted to do what I'm doing now and did not do it came at a different time and it wasn't time for what he brought and he's living through me and I had to face this man who's been like a father to me and so I got to tell you something you've got a problem I love you very much please stop drinking you're killing yourself. it's not just social you do it every day you need help and whatever I can do to support you in that I will please stop and he looked at me and I had no idea what how he was going to handle that and first there was like I scare you and we just looked at each other and then I reached out to embrace him and we've never ever embraced Man macho never hug before I hugged him and he just stood there with his arm straight he couldn't raise his arms to hug me back and he was shocked and after he got over the initial shock when he could bring himself to speak to maintain his composure because he could never afford to let me his students see him vulnerable or admit that I was right he said I'll be seeing you I said yes sir I said tell you wife I'd be by the hosta see they'll see y'all before I leave when he walked away at first I was very depressed about it I said well maybe it wasn't my place to do this and when you act you gonna have some second thoughts then I said no no no I did what I felt I did.

it because I feel very strongly about this and fortunately he called me back a few weeks later and left word with the answering service Leslie Brown I just want to say thank you and hung up that was a good feeling when we look out on our lives you ask the question what are you going to do look at as you think about this that you know you need to handle what are you going to do and then write down three strong reasons on why you know you must take action and be explicit and descriptive in your reasons because your reasons have power your reasons will drive you when you have doubt when your faith becomes weak your reasons will fortify your faith when you have an inner conversation say no don't do that your reasons will become your rod and your staff to comfort you to take you through those challenging moments so write down.

your reasons and what you will find but when you decide to act when you decide to take life on and let me warn you it can be painful it will be uncomfortable and that's where the growth is when you're uncomfortable when you're stretching out when you're taking life by the color you're gonna get thrown to the ground again and again and again but when you have determination and you know that what you're doing is right that you your life it gives a special meaning and power to you you will have some power from on high you will discover some things about yourself that will begin to electrify your personality you begin to discover some things about you that you don't know you've got when you put yourself in that type of challenging situation repeat after me please I can go into action on anything in my life nothing is stopping me but me no challenge in my life has any power over me here's something.

that Howard Thurman wrote on the decision to act he said it's a wondrous thing that a decision to act releases energy in the personality for days on in a person may drift alone without much energy having no particular sense of direction and having no will to change then something happens to alter the pattern it may be something very simple and inconsequential in itself but it stabs awake it alarms it disturbs in a flash one gets a vivid picture oneself and it passes the result is decision sharp definitive decision and the wake of the decision yes even as a part of the decision itself energy is released the act of decision sweeps all before it and the life of the individual may be changed wealth when you decide to make decisions to add you begin to access power within you that will increase your self-esteem that will increase and enhance your personal power but that puts you in charge of life and life has a whole new meaning for you as a sense of personal freedom doesn't mean you're not gonna have any struggles doesn't mean that you're not gonna have any challenges doesn't mean that you're not going to suffer any defeats no no no doesn't mean bad but what it does mean that you putting yourself in the position to grow you putting yourself in line with your higher calling and your higher self and that's what life is about
