Easy read with some great ideas

This book is definitely worth a read, with some great motivational ideas. Like other reviewers - I enjoyed the ideas about changing your attitude about things, and changing your ways to reach a new standard of your life, brilliance. The kind of book that's easy to read, and skim through from time to time.

Well written, but far from brilliant

Dont know whether I had read too many books of this kind or what, I cant remember much from this, except the impression of its being a short, easy reading, or even interesting self improvement book with strong emphasis on positive thinking, NLP and "massive immediate action". I am sure that people who seldom read self help books can learn much from it. However, for veterans who read regularly and keep on fighting against procrastination or simply inaction, satisfaction is not guaranteed. Nevertheless, below please find some of my favorite points for your reference. The right people turn up at the right time - so keep your eyes open. You never know, the person sitting opposite you on the train, or that friend of a friend could hold the answer to so many questions in your life. But if you dont talk to them, you'll never know. pg xv Here is a list of some classics and some new language: I'm bored vs This could be more interesting I'm pissed off vs I could be happier I'm scared vs I could be more confident I'm freezing vs It could be warmer This is a crap vs This could be better pg 30 Dont be most people! pg 40 When you create a goal in the present tense, your brain says "OK, if that's how things have to look, sound and feel, what do I have to do to make that happen now?" This is why a goal will happen so much faster if you set it in the present tense. pg 56 The only way of moving forward is to be aware of the things that are holding you back. pg 86 Five frongs were sitting on a log. One decides to jump off; how many are left? The answer is five. Why? Because the frog only decided to jump off. It didnt actually schedule the jump time and stick to it! pg 137 When a rocket leaves the launch pad on a trip to the moon, it uses 95 per cent of its energy in the first 3 minutes. It's the initial push that is needed to break through. The same can be said of a pursuit of brilliance. pg 142 It's not the lack of resources but the lack of resourcefulness that most people suffer from. pg 155

How to be Brilliant

Not only have I read it I'm re-reading and re-reading, and re-doing!! Love the book, clear straightforward, love the "no bull" can't be doing with all those business people who use jargon that doesn't actually mean anything!This is a book you NEED BUY IT!! Also love the typeface, the quality of the paper, and the back flap which is a hand book mark. Write another one please!!!!
