“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... and the notes are massive (Sorry!)
Without further ado…

** 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.

من أروع كتب تحفيز الذات اللي مرت علي
الكتاب لو اول مرة تقراه و اول مرة تقرا ل براين ترايسى اصلا هتديه 3 من 5 و مش بعيد كمان لو انت عاطفى اوى او بنت هاتديه 4 من 5
الكتاب و لانى مش اول مرة اقرا ل براين ترايسى ف هاديه 2 بس من 5
لا لشىء الا انى قريت اغلب كتب براين ترايسى و حسيت ان الكتاب لا يضيف جديد عما هو موجود بالفعل فى كل كتب براين ترايسى
الرجل بس عاوز يبيع اكتر المادة بتاعته ف بيحطها ف اغلفة و عناوين مختلفة كل مرة ..فقط

يمكن مقراش تانى ل براين ترايسى لفترة ما ...الكتب كتير جدا و المؤلفين برضه ..لكن الوقت اللى هو المادة الخام للحياة

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.

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

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 ..

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!

Un sistem conceput de Brian Tracy (un om de afaceri de succes și unul dintre oratorii motivaționali profesioniști din lume) cu scopul de a transforma gândirea proprie indivizilor, precum și potențialul lor, urmând un set de principii bine structurat, astfel încât fiecare să dobândească succesul dorit în fiecare aspect al vieții.

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.

Este o carte foarte bună din zona de dezvoltare personală cu soluții simple și provocatoare. Este un bun început pentru redefinirea personală, dezvoltarea carierei și chiar și a relațiilor profesionale și merită consultată ori de câte ori este nevoie.

Aku membaca buku ini yang dalam versi bahasa Indonesia. Pada bab awal hingga akhir menuntun kita untuk memahami kekurangan yang kita miliki dan mengidentifikasikan hingga akhirnya mencari solusi dari persoalan yang melilit kita. Banyak hal yang disampaikan dengan bahasa yang sederhana sehingga sangat mudah difahami. Tahapan penyampaian juga pas sehingga sangat disayangkan jika melewatkan satu saja Bab atau tak secara urut dalam membacanya. Namun ada satu bab yang tak aku suka yakni bab 4 yang sa ...more

You become what you think about most of the time

Whatever you believe, with conviction, becomes your reality

Any thought or action that you repeat over and over will eventually become a new habit

If there is no solution, there is no problem

Make a decision today that, from now on, you are going to eliminate all the “if only’s” from your life

If you want to be successful faster, you must double your rate of failure

Success lies on the far side of failure

You are not what you think you are, but what you

Well, the main reason, why I started this book, is my wish to listen to "something valuable", when I work out or do some stupid stuff at home. Usually, I have a radio by my side, but this time wanted to try out my first audiobook :) Reading is better, but this way I liked too. Did I like the book? I am not sure - it's inspiring but maybe too superficial? Well, the most important thing ir it works :) I'd like to try out some ideas. I need more discipline in my life :)
