Some Solid Wisdom Here

There were definitely some insights here regarding goal setting and positive thinking. The fact that each chapter is short made this a good read to sneak into moments throughout the day and finish quickly. I enjoyed the first half of the book more than the last half, as much of it was geared more towards sales and business and I am not involved with either. A good read though.

I read a bunch of Earl Nightingale decades ago. How to Win Friends and Speak in Public. That sort of thing. I picked this one up because it was literally lying around the house, and figured a little motivational prose might be a good way to clear my mind from the Trumpiness of the era in which we find ourselves. "Couldn't hurt..." I thought. And it can't. Not really. Not in a material sense. Not much.... I don't think.

There's a joke/anecdote I like to tell from time to time when talking with peo

Even though this seems like that hokey law of attraction stuff, that's only the first part of this book. 3/4 of the text is about legit productivity and goal setting concepts and is quite helpful to people like me who sometimes feel...scattered.

This book had a lot of great information. It was a little repetitive and unorganized, but I found a lot of value in it.

Wonderful lessons!

Great read! Good for young or old. We should suggest for our children or grandchildren. Should have read when I was younger!

One of the masters of teaching the importance of positive thinking that influenced countless authors after him. "We become what we think about" is the big message as well as "Focus on the most important clearly defined goal". One goal at the time only. Make a conscious decision and stick with it until it is realised.
If you need a motivational start over, this book is definitely a good read.
