It Picks up where Reallionaire left off ... & Rapidly Crosses the Finish Line!

I was most impressed with Farrah Gray's earlier book (Reallionaire). My daughter knew I was an admirer of Mr. Gray and presented me with "Get Real, Get Rich: Conquer The 7 Lies Blocking You From Success", as one of my birthday presents. Reallionaire was informative, entertaining, and marvelously inspirational. Dr. Gray's life is a cogent reminder that wisdom is not synonymous with a number. Chutzpah is not exemplified by a number. Experience is not contained in a number. Some of the smartest people on this earth are young. Conversely, many of the dumbest people in the world are old. Get Real, Get Rich: gives the reader more nuts and bolts than Reallionaire. It focuses on how to achieve success in all areas of life ... by telling the reader not just "what" to do but also showing "how" to do it. It is not filled with charts, graphs, and other mundane fillers. Instead, it is packed with lots of down-home-anecdotal information ... for quick, fun, and stimulating reading. Mr. Gray is spot-on when he states: "Too many of us live paycheck to paycheck and pray those compilations of books, CDs, and DVDs will somehow lead us to automatic wealth". He emphasizes throughout the book that everything comes with a price. If you are willing to pay the price, he subsequently shows poignant guidelines for fulfilling one's purpose in life. In one section the reader discovers "wealth potential". This deals with all facets of the individual ... not just his/her bank account. My favorite part of the book shows all participants how to define, discover, and demystify, their mission in life. It is done by asking everyone to answer three profound questions. I will share one with you: "What comes easy to you but harder to others?" Similar to this question, I found Get Real, Get Rich ... easy to read but difficult to put aside ... until I had read it from cover to cover. I encourage you to do the same.

WOW......MOTIVATION

I have only made it to chapter two and already feel like I am on my way to my first second, and third millions. I recommend this book to anybody who is looking for a real outlook on becomng a millionaire. Coming from one of the poorest neighborhoods in Atlanta I could relate to this author. I look forward to finishing the book.

An inspirational game plan for success

The author became a millionaire as a early teenager, made his second million by sixteen, and defied his background raised by a single parent in the impoverished south side of Chicago as the youngest of five children. His success was tied to attitude, tenacity and a rejection of the common lies about money and success - and GET REAL, GET RICH identifies seven lies and tells how to overcome them in real-world situations. It's an inspirational game plan for success that any general lending audio library needs. Diane C. Donovan California Bookwatch

Do You Believe You Can Get Rich?

Well, fellow readers, you've GOT to believe you can get rich if you're ever going to make that dream a reality! HOW do you change your thinking so you can aim for excellence and for success? Farrah Gray can help. In seven chapters, he deconstructs seven "lies" that may be preventing you from: --seeing your own potential --discovering your life's purpose (and therefore your life's work) --taking action (and getting rich is all about taking action!) I can't say I agreed with every point the author made. But his advice certainly worked for him! He became successful at an early age, and there's nothing like following the lead of a mentor who's done what you want to do (in this case, get rich). Read this one for the motivation, for new ideas, for a fresh look at what's been holding you back and what you can do about it.

Make It Happen!

After reading this book, it's clear that one must plan and execute in order to succeed. Everything Mr. Gray teaches, he constantly stresses that one must take CONSISTENT ACTION towards his or her goals, objectives and dreams. I found the "7 Lies" interesting, especially the "Hard Work Lie". I think the re-evaluation of "hard work" as a part of success is necessary. Someone once told me that hard work is doing something you dislike in the name of survival. Doing what you love to do as a career should never be "work", but a labor of love that will make you the first in and the last to leave. We should all be SO fortunate to find our Divine Mission.
