5.0 out of 5 stars Best Self Help Book I've read 9 Dec. 1999
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my time as a Life Coach, Business Consultant and Executive Trainer, I have seen so many clients hit personal brick walls, where they stop growing in their professional and personal lives. Many times they lose focus and lose their major definite purpose in life. Without a purpose we are as Zig Ziglar says, "A Wandering Generality rather than a Meaningful Specific". This drift can happen for a variety of reasons, lack of pull goals, self esteem problems, lack of hope or simply a personal confusion over who and what they are in life and in business. A good life coach will look at all aspects of your being and will work out which area needs to be worked upon.

The problem for a lot of people is that they wrongly believe they cannot afford the services of a highly trained coach who can propel them to achieve and be more in life. Also many people are sceptical about the role of personal coaching and whether it is right for them and whether they can benefit from such a service. I truly believe you cannot afford not to work with a trainer, if you want to achieve and be more in life. To take on the objective responsibility to sort out your own problems is difficult, as we often see our own problems through a non objective filter system. These filters have often been created by a socialisation process that has affected the self esteem. A personal development coach can cut through this filter system and look at the client and their problems objectively and prescribe solutions which could take the individual years to figure out. In essence the coach is the most cost effective solution for busy people.

There is of course another approach and that is one based upon self development.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review 8 May 2011
There are obviously numerous books in this field and I have read well over 70 of them by the various authors in this field, Zig Ziglar, Brian Tracy, Jim Rohn, Bob Proctor, Maxwell Maltz, etc. Before purchasing this book I was looking for a book with an original fresh aspect towards success that really had some learning to offer. I believe this book delivers. I like the way the book is set out. It has specific concepts that it mentions in point form at the start of each chapter as well as a good summary and questions at the chapter's end to enhance your understanding. So the book is very structured and systemic for those that like this style. If this was the first success book you picked up you probably wouldn't appreciate its quality at first but I believe that would change with comparison to other similar titles. It is simple to understand but quite profound with its concise use of quotation and analogy. In summary, a high quality success book that I am happy I purchased.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must read goal setting strategy 1 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is amazing book. I am so blessed reading it.

One thing I took from it is a goal setting strategy twist. You start with your values, then you do a standard things like lists of what you want, then set goals, but the most important thing you review your goals in writing daily. You map 5 of your 3 year goals with yearly, quarterly, monthly, weekly and daily goals and actions. The most important, that you work through your actions knowing where it is getting you.

It is modern fresh book giving lots of new things on personal development - love it.
