As you read the Psychology of Success it will help you step back from your life, work out what you want from it and take action to achieve it. It will show you how to begin with the end in mind, so that you deliberately work towards what you want, rather than drifting through life until you reach a place where you are stuck.
Using the Psychology of Success, you'll dare to dream about what life can be like and realize that you can do things that you really don't think you could do. You'll want to start putting in the effort needed to achieve your dreams because it'll be so worth it.
The Psychology of Success will show you how to set goals that enable you to achieve much more. Through the power of setting your goals right and breaking these down into achievable interim steps, you'll be able to achieve more than you imagined possible. This self-help book will show you how to shortcut the amount of time and effort it takes to learn how to succeed, by copying the winning strategies and beliefs of others.
The Psychology of Success also reveals how to keep yourself motivated by setting yourself mini-targets, quick wins, which you can regularly achieve. This will ensure that you get a regular dose of a wondrous natural chemical in your brain that will keep you motivated.
The Psychology of Success will also help you to overcome fears that hold you back. You'll be energized to just have a go, without worrying about failure but instead worrying about the chances you miss if you don't even try. There are opportunities all around you that will help you to reach your goal. Keeping your goal at the forefront of your mind helps your brain's power of selective attention to register those opportunities. If you have been told that you can't do something, remember that with some self-belief you can prove them wrong. Just because others say you can't doesn't mean they are right.

Just by taking action you have an opportunity to work out what works and what doesn't. You haven't failed by taking action - even if you don't reach what you were aiming for, you have succeeded in understanding more.
There is also one very powerful winning ingredient when it comes to success and that is revealed with the Psychology of Success book.
As you've seen from what the Psychology of Success can do, it is a fascinating new topic, one that combines inspirational aspects, motivational techniques, psychological insights and methods for achieving genuine happiness. In particular, there are four disciplines we have included in our concept of the Psychology of Success.
The first field that we draw upon within the Psychology of Success is the traditional discipline of psychology, the scientific study of the mind and our resulting behavior. This topic is well over 100 years old and has produced a wealth of invaluable knowledge about our personalities, motivations and behaviors that lead to achievement.
The second field that the Psychology of Success draws upon is Positive Psychology - a subject brought to prominence by the former head of the American Psychological Association, Martin Seligman - which studies human potential and looks at how to improve our lives, enabling people to become happier and more fulfilled. Of special relevance to the Psychology of Success is the research into what makes us genuinely fulfilled as success in life cannot in fact be thought to be a real success if the achievement of our goals makes us miserable.
The third field that we've drawn upon for the Psychology of Success is the field of motivational coaching. Over the years motivational coaches have popularized methods from the topic of neuro-linguistic programming (NLP), which is a technique of alternative therapy that adapts our experiences and changes our perceptions of them. The benefit of combining motivational coaching with traditional psychology and Positive Psychology is that you have a better balance through a mixture of science and powerful motivational techniques.
The fourth discipline that the Psychology of Success draws upon is sports psychology. This field of psychology enables sportsmen and women to reach the summit of their personal sporting abilities. While this discipline is more focused on how athletes can become sporting champions, there are some beneficial lessons that can be applied more broadly to help you to reach that 'gold medal' in your own goals.
Through combining these four disciplines the Psychology of Success will guide you to identify what success looks like for you, give you practical ways to achieve your goals and show you how to overcome obstacles along the way.
