I absolutely LOVED this inspirational book! It's one of those motivational books with life-changing true life stories in which you feel like you could run a marathon by the time you are done.

The 45 remarkable true life stories were demonstrations of a group of individuals who were determined to make a positive difference in this world. They didn't sit back and take no for an answer. Instead, they persevered through horrendous hardships to overcome unfathomable obstacles.

This book offers some inspiring stories in a well-organized context. Also useful was Schuller's Possibility Thinking Game (number 1-10 on a paper and brainstorm for possible solutions). Seven Characteristics of Unstoppable People: 1. Devote themselves to their true purpose, 2. Follow their heart's passion, 3. Believe in themselves and their ideas, 4. Prepare for challenges, 5. Ask for help and build a support team, 6. Seek creative solutions, 7. Persevere, no matter what the challenges.
Work hard, persevere ... and if you just happen to know rich folks who'll invest in your idea, that can't hurt either. Maybe it was the title -- the stories themselves were inspirational, but seriously? Most of these people, seems like they had connections and that paid off at the crucial moment. Well, that and when she mentions that no one is any more than 6 people from the President of the United States. Uh yeah...
I didn't end up reading this cover to cover as I soon discovered that I am completely burnt out on 'follow your dreams, you can still succeed if you never give up' type stories. I guess I've just read so many of them in the past and am no longer that surprised by them.

I did like the bit I read about the founder of Dominoes though, so this probably is a good book if you're in the mood for it.
An encouraging book about following your dreams. Stories of people hwo failed MANY TIMES before they were successful in their endeavors. Included specific ideas to get your "project" going and keep it going - involves having an accountability group of friends - something I would not be interested in doing that formally.
This book will give you a swift kick and pick me up when you read it. Each story is about overcoming huge obstacles and doing something that was once seemingly impossible. Read just one and you'll start thinking that things are indeed possible. You can achieve your dream!
Inspiring stories of people that overcame obstacles to achieve their lofty goals. It also have steps on how to achieve goals. Can be read in short (bathroom reader) type increments. Very uplifting and encouraging.
Wonderful reminder of the great power that dwells within every man! Believe in the beauty of your dreams and then take action! This book will inspire and encourage you to release your hidden potential.
I think i've been reading too many self-help books...i really don't need to...trust me. ☺
Easy to read and get inspired to get back up when life pushes you down.
