Wow! I have never awarded five stars. This book is organized like a scientific paper and a handbook on moving forward effectively at the same time. Engaging and sweet but factual, this book has re-framed my perspective on all aspects of my life.
Highly recommended for those tired of "positive thinking" and "magical thinking"...
This book had a tremendous impact on the way I approach and think about a myriad of things. Today at work several of my co-workers and my boss engaged in a discussion on many of the topics in this book. This book is a must read as it has the potential to be life changing because of the way it changes one's thinking.
I sell advertising. My job is to persuade others. I love learning how my mind works so that I can grasp what really motivates me. I also enjoy learning about people who may be very different than me.
Some books are so good that you have to buy a hard copy to pass on. This is one of them.
I liked the book but it was long winded for what it brought. While her other book was to the point and extremely relevant this one had good things regarding when to be promotion focused and when to be prevention focused but it was drown in a sea of examples and explanations.
I would recommend if you like to improve on your thinking depending on the situation to improve your odds of succeeding at a task but definitely read Nine Things Successful People Do Differently before as its way better and it will take you a fourth of the time.
i am still listening to SUCCEED, on my way to work and home - which is perfect, as there is sooo much information i prefer to listen in small doses. fascinating studies give very interesting insights into the conscious and unconscious world of making, keeping (or not) our goals. i hope to modify my personal approach to goal making as well as influence the mindset of my young son and my employees (i am self employed).
the narrator does a fine job with what otherwise could be a very dull listen.
This is a very good book, which can help you adjust your approach to your goals and life. Just about each concept is supported by the author's research. It is an easy read and has good practical suggestions you can tailor to your own life.
I even had my 18 year old daughter read it. While she initially grumbled about having to do so, after she had finished the book, she told me that she was glad that I had "forced her" to read it. She told me that reading the book helped her realize that in many ways she was defeating herself and holding herself back in certain aspects of her goal setting. Since listening to this book, I've purchased two copies for family members. If you take the time to listen to this book, you will be glad you did.
Pontiac tire changer.
It motivated me to improve myself and get out of my situation.
Other self help and motivational books even good one's might have a third of the valuable information.
The author did an excellent job of conveying research in a readable, enjoyable way.
When the author talked about the effect of her research on herself, especially when it came to weight loss.
I highly recommend this book.
I can't believe how much info this book packs on goals, motivation to even giving others feedback. May be the best book on goals I have ever read. Narrator is outstanding too!
