underwhelming at best

A very stereotypical book. I suggest Atomic habits instead, the concepts are very similar. Don't waste your credit on this book.

Straight forward tips on life from the big brother

The book has bought awareness to the simple things most people aren't conscious about and how to excel in those specific aspects of life. The narrator is the best amongst all the audiobooks I have listened to so far. Thank you so much for the vital information and wish you all the best for the future.

very simple way of saying great things.

I heard about this book in a YouTube video and planned to give it a listen. However when I looked a the sample, I was disappointed because the narrator seemed too enthusiastic. But since there were not many narrators available, I decided to go with the available one.
Let me tell you what I loved about it:
I loved how it's broken down into very digestible fragments.
I love that it's written in a very simple and effective manner.

This is easily the fastest book I have completed on audible.

Thanks

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

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

Slow and steady wins the race

This book has blown me away! I've listened to it twice in succession and I'm going to listen to it again.
It doesn't matter how small the steps are you are taking, it matters that you take those steps. Persistence and determination is what helps you achieve success. More importantly, never give up!

Good book, just did not like the hard sell at the end

Having had several sales pushes since Amway and several other selling principles just ran away when Darren offered and pushed his Insane program..

The book and story is great...sorry if that’s a sacrifice I have made by not buying this but I got the book for inspiration not to be drilled the next big template. Darren please take that out!

Stick with it!

I nearly turned it off less than 30 minutes into the book but decided to keep listening for a while longer.

I'm glad I did because it made me reflect on my life and decide to implement some of the ideas in my own life.

The author has used the book to let the readers/listeners know how successful and wealthy he is despite him stating how he dislikes that when other authors write books on how to be successful. As a UK reader who values work/life balance over money, I found the workaholic and wealth focus a little jarring.

Yet, despite those negatives I have still given it 5 stars. Think of the book as a diamond in a piece of rock, to get to the diamond you need to chip off all the rock. This book contains some simple, yet effective ideas. Overall, if you listen to the book with the intent to learn some tips, put them into action and make some changes in your life, then this book could have quite a profound effect.

So, as the title to my review states: Stick with it!

I feel my time listening to this book was spent wisely and tomorrow I am beginning day 1 of a new way of approaching my life.

I cant stop reading.

This was one of those books that came into my life at the right time at the right moment. Everything made sense, cleared the fog and filled me with so much needed hope and inspiration, and most importantly a clear path to physically start working on. it is one of the three best books I have ever read, I reread it three times. Thanks for your brilliance Darren Hardy!

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.
