Recommendation

Many regard Brian Tracy as the paladin of platitudes, but that doesn't mean his message isn't worthwhile. The old verities – Work hard! Think positive! You can achieve anything you put your mind to! – remain eternally valid. That’s why motivational authors like Tracy depend on them so heavily. Such venerable homilies continue to pack a punch. As Abraham Lincoln said, “God must love the common man, he made so many of them.” And, in contrast, author Philip Wylie said, “God must hate the common man, he made them so common.” In the end, everything comes down to personal taste and attitude. getAbstract believes the acid test for Tracy’s books is: Do they help you? This particular offering warmly and accessibly charts a plan for taking hold of your life by using the metaphor of an airplane flight. See if it helps you take off.

In this summary, you will learn

  • Why self-actualization and self-achievement are like an airplane flight;
  • What the 12 “flight plan” steps are; and
  • How to apply these steps to attain your goals.
