We all want to live a life that matters. We all want to reach our full potential. But too often we find ourselves overwhelmed by the day-to-day. Our big goals get pushed to the back burner - and then, more often than not, they get forgotten. New York Times best-selling author Michael Hyatt wants listeners to know that it doesn't have to be this way. In fact, he thinks that this is the year listeners can finally close the gap between reality and their dreams.

I liked this book a lot, I am interested to see what the bonus materials bring.
I like how it is laid out, wouldn't say it is a ton of new information if you are already into goal setting but it is good for maybe giving you a new way of laying out your goals and definitely some motivation as well.
narrator was also very good.
I have listened to it twice already and will probably listen to it again in the future to be reminded of some of the finer points.

Direct, blunt, and brutally honest, Tim Grover breaks down what it takes to be unstoppable: You keep going when everyone else is giving up, you thrive under pressure, you never let your emotions make you weak. In "The Relentless 13", he details the essential traits shared by the most intense competitors and achievers in sports, business, and all walks of life.

For the most part I just felt like I was listening to someone name drop and brag about their career.
Some good points were made, but nothing I haven't heard before in other books.
If you love NBA you might enjoy this book more as he mostly talks about training the best NBA stars.

  • The Motivation Myth

  • How High Achievers Really Set Themselves Up to Win

It's comforting to imagine that superstars in their fields were just born better equipped than the rest of us. When a co-worker loses 20 pounds, or a friend runs a marathon while completing a huge project at work, we assume they have more grit, more willpower, more innate talent, and above all, more motivation to see their goals through. But that's not at actually true, as popular Inc.com columnist Jeff Haden proves. "Motivation" as we know it is a myth. Motivation isn't the special sauce that we require at the beginning of any major change.

  • The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

Overall it was very good, A couple parts I feel like were excess and kind of fluff, but then there were also a few very valid points to hear. I would recommend, just be warned that the first chapter or two it seems like he was just trying to swear as much as possible, but then it does get much better after that.

  • Be Obsessed or Be Average

We're in the middle of an epidemic of average. So-called "normal" people get up every day, go to work, do what's asked of them, leave promptly at five, and return home to sit on the couch and watch TV. Society tells us that this is what it means to lead a balanced life. Don't stress too much or work too hard. Your career isn't everything. But Grant Cardone thinks this preoccupation with balance has really just given an excuse to be mediocre.
