Recommendation

Brian Tracy discusses how to apply the major principles of success and how to achieve your goals. These principles are very familiar to anyone who has participated in success programs or read success literature, so you will sense some déjà vu. Still, Tracy writes with an authoritative, engaging voice, and presents these basic principles as a well-organized quick read, complete with examples. His description of the various "laws" of nature that produce success, such as the "Law of Cause and Effect," the "Law of Subconscious Activity" and the "Law of Belief," contribute to the book’s feeling of authority, although the basis for calling such patterns of action and outcome "laws" may be uncertain. Yet, the device works well here, and many readers like to be told exactly what steps to take. In short, getAbstract.com recommends this zippy retelling of popular prescriptions for success - though the prescription is like mother’s old-fashioned medicine: nothing new, but it goes down very well.

In this summary, you will learn

  • The major "laws" governing success;
  • The importance of mobilizing your thoughts to achieve your goals; and
  • How to develop a winning attitude
