Not bad

Churned through it because it was fairly short but it didn't really grip. All the points are valid and relevant.

I felt the narration was quite bland

Forward-moving!

This short and concise book is (not only) inspiring and motivating, as many are, but it is a blueprint for the process! It really provided some building blocks for me... I have not really acquired this from any of the other (still wonderful) motivational books I have listened to. I will be sharing this profusely;)

Motivating but entry level information

I enjoyed the book as it combined various ideas from self help icons. The book felt like a modge podge of quotes and ideas from others that the author strung together. which can get the job done in motivating and reminding the listener. it was entry level information though. loved how quick it was and put the extra pep in my step.

Surprisingly progressive!

I came in expecting this to have a certain macho tone, but I was pleasantly surprised to find that the author also emphasizes self care and tending to one’s mental health. Actionable advice, a solid read!

I needed mental toughness to finish this...

The narrator was fine but his voice was very level and boring. If he would have been a little more fun to listen to, it could have done some favors for this awful book.
The book itself was a bit ridiculous. Skip this and go for mindfulness practices. He basically suggests to interview people who are who you want to be and asking them how they became that. lol. I mean...really?
He suggests positive thinking is going to make you mentally tough, that's not true because "positive thinking" can also be positive toxicity and lying to yourself. Mindfulness is learning to accept things for exactly what they are. No lying to yourself, just letting go of how you think it should be and accepting what is.
The author suggests many ways you can get the answers elsewhere than his own book, throws in some religious references and personal stories. Nothing concrete just junk. Like I said, just go with mindfulness practices and skip this.

Quick & Practical but nothing revolutionary

Good read & almost a cliff notes of more in depth books on the subject but still practical & thorough.

If you can, get the physical copy too

This is one of those audiobooks that you say it's better to have the physical copy since the steps given here are really organized and thoroughly outlined and if you want to write down the steps and things you find important you would have to be pausing and playing the audio throughout the audiobook while you make notes on paper. Great book. Great narrator and pace.
