From terror attacks to the War on Terror, bursting real-estate bubbles to crystal meth epidemics, sexual predators to poisonous toys from China, our list of fears seems to be exploding. And yet, we are the safest and healthiest humans in history. Irrational fear is running amok, and often with tragic results. In the months after 9/11, when people decided to drive instead of fly - believing they were avoiding risk - road deaths rose by 1,595. Those lives were lost to fear.

Most people think success comes from good luck or enormous talent, but many successful people achieve their accomplishments in a simpler way: through self-discipline. Brian Tracy knows this firsthand. He didn’t graduate from high school, and after working for a few years as a laborer, he realized he had limited skills and a limited future. But through the power of self-discipline, he changed his life.

I found this audio book to be very motivating... but thats it. I think it would be great for a first time read for someone who wants to change their career and excel in something better like sales. But, like me, if you have read other motivational speaker books, seminars, and some self help books.. you wont find anything new in this book. A lot of it is common sense stuff, and too many catch phrases. Very high level stuff. Also, the naration is very boring, with too much labial sounds and background hiss.
