Change your life with small steps

this book doesn't present any new science or discovery. What it preaches has long been known to us; it's the small things done consistently that make the difference

after reading this book, I had the urge to make changes in my life. This book was written well, well enough to give me the kick in the bum

if I had 1 criticism, it would be that the research done on this book wasn't deep enough to my liking. for example, when he talked about health, he usually referred to dr Oz.

Or when he talked about the time Oprah gave away a car to every audience member, saying that it was Oprah who went the extra mile when im fact that giveaway was fully sponsored by Pontiac to promote their new car model

Being a nut for proper facts it does bother me, but I wouldn't let that get in the way of me appreciating a well written book. Anyone who wants to change their life should read this

Don't bother

This is nothing more than over 4 hours of the author beating his chest how great he is and what he accomplished. There's about 30 mins of interesting content about how to make your life better. Waste of my time and money

Great Book

This was a good book to listen too. Darren Hardy did a great job with this book for 6 chapters. The chapter he talked about getting rid of people that are not adding value to your life was my favorite. I plan on listening again.

Wow.....

This book is enough to get anyone motivated and off their butt. It’s a book about reality and speaks honestly.
Once you’ve owned up to being in the place you’re in in your life because of choices you’ve made, it’s no one else’s fault, you will realise the world is your oyster and by being the exception you can and will become successful.
I will continue to listen to this book, it’s one of the best I’ve heard.
Thank you, Darren

Shockingly bad and misguided

Purchased this as a recommendation from a friend. I could not be more disappointed. gave me a laugh at least.

Spoiler: the author says.
Stress, Suffering = Success = happiness

His idea of success seems to be monetary gain. Success is made to sound like something so far out of reach that you’ve almost got to kill yourself to get it.

It’s full of ridiculous examples like the compound effect of eating 150 less calories a day over time is the formula for losing weight. He then goes onto say ‘knowledge is not power’. He hasn’t got a clue what power actually is.

If you want to end up chasing the American dream, only to discover your are physically and emotionally broken and unfulfilled by reaching your goals - this is the book for you.

I would never thought!

1. How small changes can have massive impact on the future
2. How my habits enslave us all
3. It's worth it to do the unexpected to make a good impression

This book should be a must have for all!

Same old story.

If you have read other motivational books then you have read this one. Same old ideas reimagined. Title doesn’t really reflect the subject matter either.

Nothing special

It's a bit dated and the content is straightforward. I can' t think of anything it brought me besides consistent efforts bring cumulative results.
