Five stars seems lofty for this book on the surface. Nothing here is new or even profound. But what Brian and Christina do in Find Your Balance Point is present time-tested methods and concepts in a concise, impactful manner. There are no fluffy anecdotes to distract from the message which allows the reader clarity, focus, and concentration on the companion exercises each chapter offers. The exercises themselves are simple to understand, but require challenging self-reflection. It's the type of ...more
Whilst this book had some great information, it wasn't quite what I was looking for. The book was more business and career oriented, when I was looking for advice on simplifying one's material needs in order to pursue one's dreams. Some of the advice, like removing distractions to focus on the essential & clarifying one's values are transferable, however, I found the writing style quite dry.

I loved the airplane analogy! Made it easy to understand what Brian Tracy means! I highlighted a lot and will add some of those quotes to my vision board.

My life was spiraling out of balance and I needed to make some changes or my health was going to be affected. Over the last year, I have reexamined my priorities and started making some changes in how I spend my time. I was overcommitted and doing too much for others which meant my family got my leftovers rather than the best of me. Even though my life isn't perfectly balanced, it is certainly better than it was a year ago. This book has given me even more insight and tips in maintaining that de ...more

In the introduction of Flight Plan, the author relays that during the course of the average flight the plane will be off course for 99% of the time. The pilots are constantly doing course corrections and adapting as needed for the conditions so that the flight will make it safely to its destination on time. It’s a sobering fact that relates well to business.

No matter how hard we try, we will find ourselves faced with challenges that need to be addressed. The longer we ignore or deny the problem

Overall this is a good book with good information about setting priorities for yourself, and finding ways to simplify your life and get rid of clutter, both physical and metaphorical in order to get more done. A lot of what is presented is common sense. It's a quick read (it only took me so long because i was reading several books at once) and good for someone who's looking for an action plan to put their life in balance.
Adam Urban
Find your balance point is not an easy book. Clarifying my priorities was a lot of hard thinking. Although I did it as described in book, I think that priorities are elastic, and change fast and much throughout entire life. I like the idea of going in a direction using priorities as your compass instead of following the path. It is a bit of a ZEN applied to 21 century culture. I did not like that some of the assumptions and theories were not backed by facts at all.

Brian Tracy says this book picks up where "The Secret" leaves off. That one tells you to think it. This one tells you how to make it happen. He has some great guidance on setting goals, and realistic advice on how hard it can be. He takes the whole idea of getting a flight off the ground and to its intended destination, and compares that to success in whatever it is you are trying to do. Planning, Starting, Adjusting as you go, Perseverance.
Gil Michelini
Brian Tracy wrote this as a response to Jack Canfield's "The Secret". Tracy's belief is that there are no secrets to success. It is like a flight plan one would follow to fly a jet.

As a student on Tracy, I can tell you there is nothing new in this book that he has not wrote or spoke on before but it is a new way of presenting the information.

Great motivational book to get you working on making your dreams achievable goals that become reality using the analogy of filing a flight plan, taking off, dealing with turbulence and headwinds, course corrections, etc. Recommended to light the fire in you to take off on your own flight to success and not crash!

Refrasing of ideas that one can find in most success-books. Be clear on you goals, have a plan, persevere. Not bad ideas, it makes a quick read, but don't expect much new stuff if you've already read about these basics.

This is his most compact set of best advice. I recognized much of it from previous woks. Tracy seems to have developed this as a response to The Secret. Anyone would be smart to follow this plan instead.

Really informative... at least for a guy that doesn't read a lot of these books. It's a really good reminder that: it's ok to be off course, it's ok to be wrong sometimes, it's ok to change your mind, and the only true path to success is lots of really hard work.
For others, this would probably be a pretty awesome little book. If you've read a lot of Brian Tracy though, this isn't really anything new. It's nice to see that he hasn't changed much and I really liked the flow of the writing but wish there had been.... something new.

You need clear goals, plans, and schedules to get from wherever you are today to wherever you want to be in the future. Like any good pilot, you need a flight plan that you file before you begin and that you use to guide you on your way.

کتابی خودیار برای آموزش برنامه ریزی و هدف گذاری . فکر میکنم از بین کتابهای برایان تریسی جزو کتابهای خوبش باشد اما به پای مدیریت زمان و قورباغه ات را قورت بده نمیرسد . هرچند رگه هایی از این دوکتاب در این کتاب هم آمده

Sort of a repeat. The conceit is that it's a contrast to a The Secret.

Really great for life time goals.

The author must have an interest in flying too. I am using some of his ideas and very practical.

Set your goals and adjust the course of action when needed. Don't change goals, set them and achieve them

Excellent review of goal setting behaviors -- the most important being that you have to pay the price of your goal and become a person who can accomplish what you're setting out to do.
Hihgly motivating book, repeating in a way ideas from other success books, but the flow is good! Like it.
