“These are some of the best ideas I have ever had - that I’ve ever taught - that I’ve ever practiced and lived by.” - Brian Tracy

He’s not kidding. This is one valuable book :

"Argue for your limitations, and sure enough, they’re yours."

"The child needs love like roses need rain. As a result of destructive criticism in childhood, we hold ourselves back as adults."

"Success lies on the far side of failure."

"The fact is, all so-called 'lucky outcomes' are really the result of proba

انسان ها مجموعه پیچیده ای از اندیشه ها، افکار، احساسات، امیال، نگرش ها، تصاویر ذهنی، هراس ها، تردیدها، نقطه نظرات، ضعف ها، امیدها و آرزوها هستند که هر کدام از اینها هر لحظه در حال تغییرند.مسبب این تغییر ها هم کسی جز خودمان نیست. هر اقدام ما اثراتی دارد که غیر قابل انکار است.منشأ و آغازگر این اثرات هم، چیزی جز اندیشه ها ی ما نیست.

طبق گفته کتاب"اگر راه حلی نباشد، پس مسئله ای هم نیست.پس همواره تلاش کنید"کتاب حرف های کلیشه ای هم داشت که با کمی تأمل میشد تشخیص داد.هرچیزی که بستگی به ما نداره، بخش بزر

In my opinion I think happiness brings success not the other way around. He seems to be a proponent for working hard, making money, get the house/car and then you will be happy. Hang out with people that will benefit you and forget the rest. I have some friends who are not on the super successful track, but it doesn't make them bad people or people that have no worth. Everyone has worth.

I really did want to like this book, but for the most part, I didn't. Tracy has some good ideas but they are w

This book is a winner.
It goes through many different principles in 12 chapters which are directed toward helping you looking differently at one's life.
It encourages a person toward changing their thinking style which ultimately leads to changing your lifestyle as whole.
Each chapters provides a well structured, well written points providing a push for anyone reading it to dream big with an actual plan that will put those dreams into action.

جميل و محفز ..
أحتاج لإعادة قراءته بعد عدة أعوام عندما أدخل الحياة العملية ، فهو يغلب عليه الحديث عن العمل و النجاح في التجارة و التسويق ، لهذا أصابني بعض الملل فهذا أمر لا يعنيني هذه الفترة ، وبنظري أن الحياة الشخصية والعائلية أهم للحديث عنها ..
هذا سبب لفقدانه أحد النجوم .. أما سقوط النجمة الثانية فكانت بسبب كثرة التركيز على بعض الأفكار التي لم تعجبني مثل الاسهاب في الحديث عن المال وكيفية كسبه وجمعه و الاقتصاد في صرفه مما يهدي القارئ للظن بأن المال غاية الغايات وليست وسيلة للوصول للغايات ..

Recommends it for: Motivational readers
Another winner by Brian Tracy. He delves a little deeper in this book, although it covers much of the same material covered in his other books.

His main theme is that "you become what you think about most of the time" therefore you must make sure your "thinking" is taking you where you want to go. "You are not what you think you are, but what you think, you are."

He encourages, as always, to set goals, but he also explains the importance of writing out plans and putting them in motion. Few people

Just stupid. Lots of aphorisms with little stories which are probably made up. Instead of research, positive platitudes.
I always pictured that I could be short. I imagined how nice it would be. I slumped my shoulders and wore flats. I was 5'7" at 13. Not petite for a girl. My point, visualizing does not change reality. Now I'm short (in a wheelchair ) with a progressive disease. Seeing myself walking, standing tall, is how I like to see myself until I wake up. Not inspiring or helpful.

Just re-read this book - very inspiring! Though many of the examples in the book relate to earning more money and enriching your career, you can apply it to any facet of your life. It makes you think about what's really important to you. The exercises at the end of each chapter give you the tools to really change your life. I highly, highly recommend this book - it can make your good life into a great one!

This was the first self-help book that I've read in its entirety and I am still amazed by it the same way I was amazed by it when I read Brian Tracy's first first thought and first line. This absolutely isn't the kind of book that you read fast and then simply put away on the nearest bookshelf, this is the kind of book that you absolutely must read slowly if you wish to take and learn something valuable from it. Brian Tracy's most definitely a master of his craft, and he's well educated on our l ...more

This book had some five star chapters and some one star. I significant portion of the book was focused on how to become rich and indicated that should be a goal. While I agree that financial security should be an important goal I don’t think that is the same thing a “becoming rich”. If that is your primary goal then you the author does give some good ideas for achieving. The chapters I liked were the ones that dealt more with personal development and improvement. I listened to this on audio and ...more

I’m so crazy about this book, lucky I found this book!! Eventhough you are busy, you should take the time to read this book. One of the best books I’ve ever read. Really in the line of the title, when you change your way of thinking you change your life. Almost all (maybe all) within this book deeply inspiring me.

Simply put, the author helps us to become more intentional about life. From case study to case study, and from principle to principle, he shows how results are based on thoughts, actions, belief systems and association. This is just a way to get anyone to realize that they are responsible, so that they can change the results of their lives to some more desirable ones.
