Summary

Are you wondering why things can’t improve no matter how hard you work? Do you feel like you’re stuck doing the same thing day in and day out? When is all of this effort going to pay off?

You are not alone. Unfortunately, for many of us, the answer is often, “I’ll work harder, and somehow it will all be fine," usually with predictable results. Well, it’s time to break the cycle!

The fact is if you’re having these feelings, then your work ethic is not the reason you feel you’ve been spinning your wheels - so stop blaming yourself. Instead, it’s time to take steps to change the habits that are keeping you from achieving all of your life goals. This can seem daunting, but it’s not. By applying small, impactful, long-term habits, you can completely change your life. You are making changes to your way of thinking and mindset that differentiates you from the rest.

The most crucial part about creating effective habits is to do it properly. This guide helps you by laying out a proven blueprint to instill these habits and tells you how to apply them. Here I spell out the exact steps, including:

  • Identifying which habits to keep
  • How to accumulate multiple effective habits
  • How to create and apply habits for financial and social success
  • What “keystone habits” are and how they can help you finally take action
  • What secret habits are shared by all successful people

This book provides modern, scientific-backed strategies to work from the get go. Even if you feel like you are too old or “stuck in your way of thinking” to create new habits, you’ll quickly find that it’s easy to get started, and even easier to build upon, once you see the results!

If you’re ready to start making meaningful changes to your habits, then click the download today, and let’s get started!

Easy to follow the advice

I'll return in three months, and if what I've learned has helped, I'll leave the five stars, if not, I'll drop it to four. Great book regardless!

Fake reviews and congested reader

On opening this book, I wondered why I purchased it. There’s a long disclaimer at the front about how the author is not an expert and you are on your own following any advice. Would have been nice to know before purchase. The narrator sounds like he has a head cold. And “Stephen Patterson” writes like a non-native speaker of English. No budget for an editor?

I must have bought it based on good reviews. Went back to check.....oh, generic reviews that say nothing about this particular book and don’t sound like native English speakers? It’s probably better than the one star I’m giving it, but I don’t like deception.

Very different book

This was a good book that was eel researched and gave a new perspective on wealth. I didn't take away from the rating but the ending seemed a little repetitive but I feel that that may be really good to reinforce points that I've read in other books. I'd definitely recommend this book.

If everyone would read this...

If everyone would read this and follow the steps, we wouldn't need social security, except for those individuals that are incapacitated. A great book on how to save and invest for retirement. Great stories by those everyday people that are hard workers and have become everyday millionaires.
