Do you ride the escalator or do you take the stairs? No matter how you define success, it always requires one thing: self-discipline. But as popular speaker and strategist Rory Vaden explains, we live in an "escalator world", one that's filled with shortcuts, quick fixes, and distractions that make it all too easy to slide into procrastination, compromise, and mediocrity. What seems like an easier path is really much harder in the end - and, most important, it won't take you where you want to go.
How do successful people stay focused and achieve results? This lively and insightful guide presents a simple program for taking the stairs - that is, for overcoming the temptations of quick fixes and procrastination, conquering creative avoidance, and transcending personal setbacks in order to tackle the work that leads to real success. Whatever your goals are, Rory Vaden's proven approach will get you there - one stair at a time.

I've read and listened to many books on the this type of material but I found Rory Vaden to be a terrific narrator and put the information together in a way that was on-point. I think soo much of this book that I purchased a copy to give to my teenage son as I think there are many life lessons here that absolutely will benefit my boy.
I really enjoyed this one. I'll likely listen to it again as I feel it worthwhile reenforcing the lesson here.
This book has really changed my life. The message and the examples Rory gives are very powerful. I am determined to make a change in my life now, and can see a way forward. I would enjoy more audio material by Rory Vaden--he is an excellent motivator.
The examples he gives illustrate his points perfectly.
Rory Vaden himself!
This is a must read if you want to get back to the basics and be reminded how hard working Americans
get to the top!!
The one thing that stood out the most is Rory
None stood out above the rest.
Let me save you 4 hours: Do what you know you are supposed to do, even if you don't want to do it.
I first heard Rory on Entrepreneur on Fire. His visual of "Take the Stairs" montra stuck with me so i decided to give it a listen. He breaks down success in 7 steeps. Uses references from Darin Hardy, Napoleon Hill and other great authors. Take the Stairs is in my top ten of success books.
Rory Vaden did a great job with this book. I've selected several clips of the audio tape and played during staff meetings. awesome book across the board.
Really brilliant ideas and information to uplifting messages. All about this book; actions. I really love it. Cool. God bless him.
I will read this book again and buy multiple hard copies to share with friends, family and students. I consider this a "must read."
