You settled for the first job that came along, the okay apartment, and the steady, but unfulfilling partner. You thought you were playing it safe.

But with each passing day, the simmering frustration with your mediocre choices feels like it might swallow you whole. You're not growing, not creating, not moving. The person you want to be is gasping for air, but you don't know

I am not a fan of self help books. However, I picked this up and read the entire thing. I really enjoyed the way this book is written.

This isn't being negative, this is simply being honest - this book is a hagiography of Survivorship Bias. You can work very hard, never lose sight of your dreams, have the best mentor ...more

Inspiring Storytelling. Great read

I love how the authors use real experiences of amazing people to demonstrate the principles shared throughout the book. This style makes it easier to see how I can apply the knowledge to my life.

Much needed!

I am actually on an adventure right now doing door to door sales in Southern California and I found a lot of valuable golden nuggets that will help me have a deeper experience as I explore the beauties of Southern California! Thank you brother!
