Publisher's Summary

Even the most successful people in the world experience setbacks. The secret is learning how to deal with them and make them work to our benefit. We can let failure sap our self-confidence and heighten our frustration, or we can stay true to our vision and embrace new opportunities.

Fashion designer Isaac Mizrahi has had to reinvent himself several times over, experiencing extraordinary success along with devastating failure. But he approached the uncertain times with an unflappable sense of self and purpose that drove him forward, often inspired by his favorite books. In this workshop, the designer, entrepreneur, and entertainer introduces you to these invigorating personalities - both real and fictional. An autistic animal behaviorist. A portrait of human drive and desire. A leader who never gave up the fight. Like Isaac, you'll learn how to trust your instincts, bounce back from setbacks, and persevere.

Key Takeaways:

  • Shift Your Mindset: Practical steps to shift your thinking and learn from setbacks
  • Find Your Strength: How to focus on the work you enjoy and stay true to your vision
  • Know When to Stay the Course: Signs that it's time to push back and stay true to your vision

About the Mentor:

This Brooklyn-born, Jersey-raised dreamer received his first sewing machine when he was just 10 years old. Before he turned 30, Isaac Mizrahi had established his critically acclaimed eponymous fashion label and to this day remains the Chief Designer of his brand. But he’s also an actor, author, and entrepreneur. So whether sitting as a judge on Project Runway: All-Stars or bringing elegance to the masses on QVC, Isaac is a master of persistence and turning creative ideas into tangible success.

So so

I couldn’t finish. He puts in annoying background music intermittently that’s very distracting. I get that he’s creative no an innovator, but there’s a well proven formula for presenting audible books and it’s not wise to mess with such a successful format.

Annoying bg noise. Lesson: DO YOU.

The audio is like an interview and told in tidbits of story from his experiences. The background noise, however, was so annoying that I had a hard time finishing it.

Nothing new. Easy to apply. Here are some tips on dealing with impostor syndrome and being persistent:

Focus on who you are. Stay true to your vision and the persistence will take care of itself.
Be aware of things that you can control and things you can't control. And then concentrate on things you can control. Simon Sinek calls these as things within your sphere of influence.
Do you and keep with it. Rob Dial said "just start doing it and don't stop."

Knowing that working for someone else is not really in his vision, he quit his job with only a dollar to his name. I find it courageous. He called it being "persistently commited to your vision."

Short but impactful.

A quick and incredibly inspirational narrative. Wish I could’ve heard more about persistence and Isaac’s life and the tools that are still working for him.

Laugh out loud funny, yet instructive

I loved this book and the author’s personality. I’ve had this for a while and didn’t really think I would learn much from it, but I was so wrong. It was approached from the vantage point of a true creative and is written very differently from other self help books I’ve read. I thought it was absolutely fantastic!

Publicidad inspirscional

Otros audios ya lo parecían, pero este corto es demasiado obvio en la Oferta a leer/escuchar otros libros. Además de la experiencia personal del protagonista, carece de sustento
