Publisher's Summary

You're sabotaging your own success - and Larry Winget can prove it!

You think you know what you want in life. You've tried to achieve those things. But if you still don't have them, the culprit may be closer than you think.

In this perspective-altering program, the world-renowned Pitbull of Personal Development(tm), Larry Winget, exposes the things you are doing right now to unknowingly prevent your own success in the most important areas of your life: business, family, health, parenting, money, and more - and offers you his self-proven action plan for change. You'll learn about:

  • The only five success rules you'll ever need.
  • How to eliminate stress once and for all.
  • The 10 ways you're sabotaging yourself right now.
  • Surprising ways to get more done at home and at work.
  • The bad-habit-breaking trick that will change your life instantly.
  • Simple steps to making fast improvements in your finances.

By following the straightforward, commonsense plan Larry presents in this program, you'll be able to remove the one and only obstacle standing between you and the things you really want in life: you. If you're ready to make some real, lasting changes using simple solutions that work, his no-holds-barred style and radically un-radical process are what you've been waiting for!

    "Mr Winget never disappoints,always feel motivated"

    I have either read or listened to all of Mr. Winget's books. I prefer listening because he is reading and I feel very motivated afterwards. His tough love truth style makes you think, "yeah he's right why am I doing that and not blaming myself?" Even if you don't feel you need self improvement stop kidding yourself and try one of these books you will feel very motivated after.

    "Was just OK"

    Normally I love me some Larry Winget but this one fell flat for me. The whole gist of the book is decide what's really important to you, write it down, take responsibility for proving it's really important to you and take action accordingly. It just took over 4 hours for him to say it.

    Story
    "The Fine Line between cracking the Whip and Grinding the axe"

    This program (can't really call it a book, as the author seems to deliver it extemporaneously) doesn't pull punches. Wiget's message is clear and unapologetic: accept responsibility for where you are and take action to move yourself forward.

    He provides some practical advice on how to do that, primarily using written inventories, lists, and goal-setting. Nothing new necessarily, but presented in a compelling and motivating way. He's right on, except when he occasionally veers into axe-grinding mode, which is rare during the main part.

    He does give you fair warning in the last segment that he's going on a rant (though not in those words of course). Most of what he fusses about there is accurate too, like the victim mentality in our country. But he's dead wrong elsewhere, like in his take on health care (he's got the economics exactly backwards).

    Taken as a whole I recommend this. Just skip the rant at the end.

    "Larry Speaks my language"
    Any additional comments?

    I love Larry's matter of fact way of speaking! I love the narration! I didn't use to be the most confident person in the world and sometimes you just need to hear things, point blank, and have it spelled out for you. I love this book! I found myself nodding and saying yeah several times while listening to this book.

    "keeping it simple"

    Larry keeps it simple, and a common sense approach. Time to put it to the test.

    "Real advice you can use and very convicting."

    I was very convicted while listening to his reasoning. It really gave me a plan of action to deal with all the areas of my life. Clear no beating around the bush in your face truths you cannot deny.

    "Rubbish"
    If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are looking for a book on self-improvement, this is a waste of time. All the guy does is rant like a school teacher telling off naughty children. Waste of money.


    What could Larry Winget have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Get a life


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Larry Winget?

    I wouldn't


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None that I could tell


    Any additional comments?

    Get a job Larry and don't pretend to be a guru.
