Make no mistakes about it, all of us started our lives by dreaming big. We had high ambitions, we dreamt big and hoped big. But sooner than later the 'reality' gave us a wake-up call and the world around made us shrink our dreams and thoughts. Few of us, if ever, arrived at our last day with all our dreams fulfilled and all our hopes intact. Life shakes us all up and shatters our dreams. But some of us march on, tough as nails in the face of struggles. What separates such victors from the vanquished is their thought process. When Life throws you a challenge, one can simply wilt down and wither away or one can simply toughen oneself up and tear apart the challenges. And, one's self-belief plays the most crucial role in how one overcomes the challenges.
In this book, Dr.David Schwartz elaborates on the ageless principle of 'you become what you think'. What is so refreshing about this book is the very practical approach to the problems and the offering of subtle solutions. This book does not ask you to write some self-assuring line for 100 times daily. This book does not ask you to stare at yourself in a mirror - except on one rare occasion - and repeat some 'magical phrase' so many times to encourage yourself. All this book asks you is to think and to think BIG.
One of the most interesting aspects of this book is, this is quite comprehensive. Whether you are suffering from self-imposed inferiority complex or you have been told by people that you’re incapable of doing something, whether you’re suffering a setback in your venture or you’ve not even started yet due to fear, this book will add a dash of confidence to your thoughts and deeds. It all flows in simple, plain language, as if a friend is sitting across the table, speaking with you about your troubles and help stimulate your thought process, through which you get to correct your thought process and solve your troubles on your own. There is no peppering of quotes from ancient philosophers and certainly no repetition of platitudes as many popular modern-day authors wont to do.
If you would want to read only one book of the personal development genre ever, choose this one. For, this is such a beautiful, brilliant and worthwhile stuff!
David explains that having big ambitions in life is no more difficult than having small ambitions (contrary to popular belief).
One of the reasons why people fail is due to what the author calls 'Excusitis' i.e. developing excuses of health, age, believing you don't have what it takes etc. After going into detail about these aspects, David provides you with solutions to tackles these mental obstacles that prevent you from taking action.
I have read this book along with a few other books about achieving success. The common theme I have found within them is the development of your mind and to replace negative programming with positive programming. To me that makes total sense as the number 1 reason why people give up is not due to their lack of physical ability, rather their lack of mental ability.
The book isn't very big to get through and only takes a few hours to read. This is definitely staying on my bookshelf and is something I will pick up from time to time when I feel deflated and need a quick boost of mental energy!
