Publisher's Summary

What are the core elements that allow top performers to achieve success repeatedly?

One clear, positive thought can set a goal in bedrock or trigger peak performance.

Study three easy fundamentals and make them a habit, and you have a recipe for sustained success no matter what hurdles life throws at you.

This is a story of a small boy, scared and alone in the world, who ran away from home at 16, overcame numerous hostile environments to pursue his dream to become a Navy SEAL, and eventually became the naval special warfare sniper course manager (head) instructor. The lessons learned along the way were powerful.

When I was part of the sniper instructor cadre, we studied the habits of champions and top performers. Then we applied them to our course curriculum and students. The results were incredible and undeniable.

The power of thought works.

    "Save your money and buy his full book"

    This is simply a highlights reel of red circle. He recounts the stories from that book nearly verbatim.

    "If you have read the red circle, then don't buy."

    It's pretty much a rehash of the red circle. Brandon does come in and give personal word on the book, but you honestly don't have to bother.

    Story
    "Not much meat here"

    I assume the book is well-intentioned, but it's:

    – Very short.
    – Despite its brevity, includes a rather big chunk from Red Circle, the author's bestseller.
    – Written in a weekend (according to the author himself) – aka not exactly a piece of art.
    – Poorly organized. There's no rhyme or reason to the structure. Don't expect a book like The 7 Habits (by Covey) with each habit neatly fit into a chapter. This book is more of a ramble. A mind dump.

    All said. Yes, trust this and other reviews: you CAN skip this book;-)

    Oh pretty please, drone on about yourself. Dear lord. The power of thought or the power of self aggrandizement? No,no, no, thank you.

    "Enjoyed It"

    The point of the message wasn't exactly new to me. The book actually started far from what I expected. But the author finished strong. I enjoyed it and got some solid reminders.

    "What the?/a story about what could be a good story"

    Disappointed that this didn't actually provide 'how to. I love Brandon's other book and he's a great story teller however talking about the what he did and referring to someone elses great 'mental management' as the secret sauce made paging for this quite hollow...maybe even a reference to those materials would have left me with some if not one little gem.

    Story
    "Ehhhh"

    I love sofrep and all that they do and I've read or listened to all of Brandon's books, the problem is that the story told here was perhaps not what I expected. The stories he told were in all of his other books and I guess I was expecting more of a guide about "the power of thought". This seemed more of a mix of different stories about how the power of thought can work.
