Perhaps the most complete self help book

This is the thickest self help book I ever read. 435 pages of content. However, it's a real page turner that I had finished it within three days, and learned a lot. I must praise the detailed breakdown (64 prinicples/chapters), the good pick of stories and quotes supporting each prinicple, and the excellent writing skill of the author. It's no exaggeration to describe this as the shortcut/summary/spirit of the "Chicken Soup for the Soul" series. I had read over 50 self help books. I seldom rate one five star. But this book deserves it. Below please find some of my favorite passages for your reference. You cant hire someone else to do your push-ups for you. pg xxx Believe nothing. No matter where you read it, or who said it, even if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense. Buddha pg xxxi You cant cross the sea by merely staring into the water. pg 109 If people knew how hard I had to work to gain my mastery, it wont seem wonderful at all. - Michelangelo pg 130 Talent is cheaper than table salt. What separates the talented individual from the successful one is a lot of hard work. - Stephen King pg 136 When a NASA rocket takes off from Canaveral, it uses up a large portion of its total fuel just to overcome the gravitational pull of the Earth. Once it has achieved that, it can virtually coast through space for the rest of its journey. pg 136 Whenever you ask anyone for anything, remember the following, SWSWSWSW, which stands for "some will, some wont, so what, someone's waiting." pg 147 The secret to success is to not give up. When someone say no, you say "Next!" Keep on asking. (Founder of KFC had been rejected over 300 times) pg 148 Go the extra mile. If you are willing to do more than you are paid to, eventually you will be paid more than you do. pg 182 You become like the people you spend the most time with. Pay any price to stay in the presence of extraordinary people. pg 190 Failing to complete robs you of valuable attention units. pg 209 Often, denial is based on the notion that something even worse will happen once we stop denying and take action...but you have to face what isnt working first. pg 224 Good or bad, habits always deliver results. Success is a matter of understanding and religiously practicing specific, simple habits that always lead to success. pg 248 When you are interested in something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you are committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results. - Ken Blanchard pg 251 Consider a committment to just 99% quality would mean:- -16,000 lost pieces of mail per hour -20,000 incorrectly filled drug prescription per year -500 incorrect surgical operations performed each week -500 new born babies dropped at birth by doctors every day -Your heart failing to beat 32000 times a year pg 254 The word "enthusiam" comes from the Greek word entheos, which means "to be filled with God". pg 269 Listen a hundred times. Ponder a thousand times. Speak once
