|About the Book|
This is a keeper. I can’t believe I never came across this before--he basically thought of everything I have thought before I did. The book is about how to cultivate a more productive mind- that your mental attitude is related to your success in a lot of ways. And I thought his insights were really practical.Here are a few:--About your success, “you must not wait to act until you have proof —you must act as if it’s already there and it will come through”--Do everything you can to prepare, and then relax in the doing of it. The more you can detach yourself (and your self esteem) from the outcome, the better you will perform. Get out of your own way.--“Live in daytight compartments”. The only time we have any power over is the present moment…don’t waste time worrying about the past or future- do the things you need to do right now to heal the past or prepare for the future.--Happiness is a choice. Your circumstances may be difficult or discouraging…but your attitude can make those circumstances worse or better. You always have a choice about how you react.--“be willing to make a few mistakes and suffer a little pain, to get what you want”. Bring courage to your life, do the hard thing, be vulnerable, and take a risk for something you really care about.
