I bought this initially on kindle back in June 13 and then purchased a hard copy the following year.
Prior to reading it I had spent my adult life feeling thick, regretting the fact I hadn't done a degree after I left school and had spent quite a few years working full time whilst completing a degree part time which I finally achieved it at the age of 42. Despite this I still didn't really believe in myself or my capabilities and I would have thought after all my life wanting to get to this place I would have been more than happy to have finally have done it (I got a 2:1). It was at this point I read your book and this gave me the confidence to try again with study at a higher level. I didn't know how I would get on but kept the thought in my mind that as long as I put the work in then anything is possible. I applied for a post grad in Emotional Education at Atlow Mill Centre through Derby University and was amazed to get a place on the course. Goal 10 always stayed with me 'never give up' and I achieved my goal despite becoming seriously ill and nearly dying at the end of the course.
Two major operations later I was determined I could still achieve more if I maintained the same mindset. I am now completing my Masters in Education (Year 2) which the thought of for me years ago would have been totally off the charts!
Jim has definitely got me hooked as a true believer of everything he has written and even though to some what I have achieved is minimimal in comparison to some people's aspirations it is proof that anything is possible. Who knows what I might choose to do after this as there is no stopping me now!!!
