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.

Enjoyed it. Practical actionables!

I enjoyed the narrative! Full of energy and enthusiasm. Simple but profound fundamentals. Stay away from the herd mentality. Push yourself for excellence with very small steps at a time! Micro habits are the keys for compound effect! Talks about the advantages of being in - FLOW! Talks about mindfulness! Set clear vision and be mindful of each step you take, each word you speak, each second you speak and of course each penny you spend. Have a habit of writing down your goals, regular introspection, be completely focused on your goals! Get surrounded by the people you look up to. Concentrate on the positives in each aspects however difficult or negative the situation may appear!

Go that extra mile after you have given your best! Be it at work, relationship, workout or charity! Exceed your own expectations! Exceed everyone's expectations in every little thing you do! Getting into a rhythm is one thing but what is more important is how one bounce back when hits the wall!

Own 100%... Only you are RESPONSIBLE for your destiny! Stop the blame! See inwardly. Think, how you are responsible for each and everything that's happening with you! Excuses don't help! Responsibility and focus on the positives make all the difference!

Nothing new that I hadn't heard so far! But beautifully summarized into a book; definitely strengthening my core values! Go for it!

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

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.

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

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.
