Summary

Greg Whyte learnt from an early age that the biggest obstacle in life was people telling him, "No, you can't". But we all have the ability to achieve what others may say is impossible. Don't listen to them. Success is not a chance event. With proper planning, preparation and vision, Professor Whyte has the knowledge and methods that can turn the ordinary into the extraordinary, mortals into elite athletes, to deliver not dream.

Using the examples of iconic Comic Relief and Sport Relief challenges achieved by the likes of David Walliams, Eddie Izzard, John Bishop, and Davina McCall under his guidance, Greg Whyte shows that anyone can do anything. With expert but simple-to-understand advice, useful diagrams, and structured tasks, he demonstrates how this applies in life, from losing weight to reducing anxiety; in business, through maximising potential and core principles of management; and in sports, whether it be a 10k run or the ultimate endurance challenge. So don't take no for an answer. By making the impossible possible, this book is the blueprint for success in life.

Awesome!

Awesome! Need I say more...
I'd recommend it to coaches, athletes, parents and more. In addition, if you get the opportunity. To hear Greg speak then I highly recommend that as well. And you can access all the support that he describes at the Centre for Health & Human Performance in London.

Too much "_________ of success"

The knowledge & strategy contained in this book is excellent. The problem is the excessive & repetitive use of "_______ of success" wheel of success, brain of success, road to success and on and on and on.

The bulk of this book is strategy & knowledge about achieving success & overcoming great challenges.

The best parts of this book was the stories of people achieving great success but Greg goes over these stories briefly usually in less than 100 words.

I wish this book would have been less about knowledge & strategy (which I understood the bulk of it within the 1st hour) and been more about the stories of the difficult challenges people went through to achieve their great successes.
