Art Mortell, as a motivatonal speaker, explains why, when successful people reach a crossroads, rather than take the safe path, they become more courageous. They make adjustments that accelerate their recovery. Rather than depend on the 10 negative addictions to cope with anxiety and stress, they thrive on stress by using the four positive addictions.
Successful people’s self-esteem is not based on whether they win or lose, fail or succeed or are loved or rejected, but is based on their own sense of value. Failure is a maturing process that makes them more resilient. They take the challenge seriously, of developing their talents, while being amused by their own frailties and frustrations. Art Mortell explores examples of overcoming obstacles from the lives of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammad Ali, and Michael Jackson in this engaging audio.

I wanted the book to last longer and will be listening to it over and over. I'm not easily impressed. Where would I be if I'd learned this years ago.
At the end, I was still expecting to hear something more than those repeted basics.
